Is this the One of the Best Coffee Lover Gift Ideas?


Yes, the BUNN MCU Single Cup Multi-Use Home Coffee Brewer ought to be on the top of the list of your favorite coffee lover (and maybe you). If you've been looking at coffee lover gift ideas that will really WOW someone, then let me point out why this should be a top contender.

Coffee Lover Gift Ideas | Single Serve Coffee Maker

First,  it's built specifically to take a variety of hot beverage type. No more mixing tea, cider or cocoa flavors in the same cup holder that you brew your coffee. I know, I know, you're not supposed to taste the mix of flavors, but I bet you do. Sometimes my grandkids can taste a hint of coffee in the hot water that cooks up their cup-of-noodles.

If you've always thought there should be a better way, then you're right and it's right here in the
single cup coffee maker. 

The Secret is Four Removable Drawers

This coffee maker has a total of four removable drawers – you have one drawer for ground coffee, K-cups, hot water, and pods.

You don’t have to worry about mixing the flavors together because you can switch the drawers out when changing between tea, coffee and other beverages of your choice. You just slip the right pod drawer in when you need then you're capable of preparing almost any beverage you want. 

  • Coffee
  • Loose leaf tea
  • Ground coffee
  • Hot cocoa
  • Soft pods of coffee and tea
  • Instant coffee
  • Hot water
  • Oatmeal (yes, oatmeal or even cup-of-noodles)

·       While the drawers are a terrific idea for a single serve coffee maker, it not the only reason you'll love this BUNN coffee maker. it.

K-Cups or Not

While one of the drawers is specifically for Keurig K-cup, you don't have to use it. Many folks like to use the ground coffee drawer. This allows them to use their own coffee and amounts. One tip you'll want to keep in mind if this becomes our favorite drawer is to use small coffee filters to hold the grounds. It makes clean up even easier.

Love the Small Footprint

If you have a small counter or if you just don’t want a coffee maker that takes up a whole lot of room, this one right here would be a suitable choice. It has a small counter-top footprint … there are not many coffee makers currently on the market that are this small in size. But because it's small, doesn't mean it doesn't brew up some big cups of coffee... or more. 

It Make a Strong Cup of Coffee

Coffee Lover Gift Ideas | Single Serve Coffee Maker Want a strong cup of java? No problem. This Bunn coffee maker uses a pulse system to soak the coffee grounds with a nice wave of hot water, then it pauses to let the grounds soak before the water flows out. The pause stage is referred to as “pre-infusion.” Pre-infusion is responsible for releasing acids that make that cup of coffee strong.

Most of the time this little coffee maker takes under 1-minute to brew your favorite beverages. But the Pulse Brew feature takes a little more time, but it's worth the wait for that deep, rich flavor you crave in a cup of coffee.

It's a Hot Cup of Coffee, Too

Coffee connoisseurs say the best coffee is brewed at high temperatures of about 200 degrees. The typical Keurig coffee maker can't do that because of its large water reservoir. The typical water brewing temperature for a Keurig is about 192 degrees.

But this BUNN only keeps 14 ounces of water in its tank. That way the water stays warm and can quickly bring your coffee up to the right (and best) temperature. The downside, of course, is that you have to add the amount of water you need each time you brew. But if you like your coffee hot and rich, it's an easy trade-off to live with.

BUNN MCU Single Cup Multi-use Home Coffee Brewer Features:

  • Small footprint | 7.2W x 10.2D x 12.1H
  • Makes one cup at a time
  • 4 to 14-ounce serving sizes
  • Four (4) brewing drawers | K-cup, ground coffee, pod and water
  • Usually brews in under 1-minute
  • Makes a stronger cup of coffee with Pulse Brew options (takes a little extra time)
  • Coffee brews at a high temperature of 200-degrees·
