World Cup 2014 begins on Thursday, June 12.
In CNET's inaugural coffee maker round-up, we take a look at five, higher-end, single-serve coffee makers. You'll be surprised by how much diversity we found among these seemingly simple machines.
The Hamilton Beach 40918 Java Blend Coffee Brewer combines a blender with a coffeemaker. The one device can make a variety of drinks.
We can’t justify the purchase of this machine when we compare it with the $169 Bunn My Cafe MCU, which can make decent K-Cup coffee and a reliable cup from fresh grounds.
If you love Starbucks so much that you don’t care to drink anything else, then look no further – the Verismo is the coffee-maker for you. Coffee drinkers who like fresh ground beans and experimenting with different brands will want to look for a more versatile brewer.
With too many better brewers out there in the same price range, it’s hard to recommend the Keurig K75 Platinum.
Great for Starbucks addicts, not so much for everyone else.
The single-serve coffee experience heats up this year as Keurig's newest coffee-dispensing system, Vue, primes itself to succeed the wildly popular K-Cup.
The Breville Gourmet Tea Brewer & Variable-Temperature Kettle automatically raises and lowers tealeaves into water.
The brand's next generation of single-serve coffeemakers won't be brewing anything other than Keurig-approved pods.
The newest TASSIMO Hot Beverage System by Bosch is featured in the House Beautiful Kitchen of the Year
