I know I’m not alone when I say that my morning doesn’t start until I have my first cup of coffee. Checking my email or reading the news is so much better with a hot cup of coffee in my hand. Getting ready for work is bearable between delicious sips. I’ve also been known to bring a cup with me during morning walks with my three rowdy dogs which is just as much as a circus when you witness it in real life as it sounds.
But like many people I know, the first cup is merely the first step. There’s the accidental second cup of coffee while you finish your DVR shows from the night before. And then there’s the travel coffee that keeps you company on your commute. You could say my relationship with coffee is getting (or has been) pretty serious.
For all these cups of coffee in my life, I rely heavily on my Hamilton Beach FlexBrew 2-Way Coffee Maker. It’s an essential item for my counter top and if you’re a serious coffee drinker like me, it’s should take up residence on your kitchen counter as well.
Flexibility is Key
With FlexBrew, you’re in charge of how you make your coffee. On one side, you can brew up to a 12-cup pot of coffee from fresh coffee grounds. This is great if there are multiple coffee drinkers in your household, or you know that you’ll have more than one cup during the day. The full pot side is fully programmable to fit your schedule (you can set your brew time up to 24 hours in advance so you can wake up to the smell of coffee), has auto pause and serve so you can pour a cup of coffee while it’s brewing without spilling it, and a two-hour warm cycle with an automatic shutoff. You’ll never have to wonder if you left your coffee pot on before you left for the day.
On the other side is a single-serve coffee maker perfect for your favorite at-home or travel mug. You can use either a K-Cup or fresh grounds, it’s completely up to you. No matter what you choose, you’ll get the perfect amount of coffee brewed at the right strength.
My FlexBrew has come in clutch so many times during weekends spent with my family. It should come as no surprise that we are all pretty serious coffee drinkers, so my FlexBrew allows for everyone to get what they want when they want it. We’re able to brew different coffee grounds from two different stores without having to wait too long for coffee. My brother-in-law loves a rich, dark roast; so he’ll make himself a single serving, no problem. Meanwhile my sister, mother and I love a tasty breakfast roast from my local coffee shop. We’ll use the fresh ground coffee on the full pot side and drink the carafe to our hearts’ content.
With Hamilton Beach’s FlexBrew, you get a lot of brewing options packed in a small coffee maker. Fresh grounds or K-Cups; full-pot or single serve, no matter how you like your coffee, FlexBrew has you covered.
