Started off in the early 1970’s, the Mr. Coffee brand has grown to become one of the pioneering innovators behind coffee makers. By 1974 their first commercial prototype, an automatic drip coffeemaker, had sold over a million units and this led to a new coffee revolution. 40 years down the line, the brand name is now owned by Jarden Consumer Solutions. The company now focuses on improving their coffee makers, iced tea makers as well as espresso makers. Their innovations over the years have proved very useful to the industry and as a result the company has won several awards. Today we take a look at one of their latest products in the market, the Mr. Coffee BVMC-KG6-001 Single Serve Coffee Maker.
Designed with the consumer in mind, the single cup coffee maker guarantees you a freshly brewed hot mug of the coffee, cocoa or tea of your favorite flavor. Powered by Keurig Brewed technology, the Mr. Coffee BVMC-KG6-001 is able to prepare your favorite beverage in under a minute.
This Mr. Coffee single cup coffee maker comes in matte black plastic finish for the body and arm. On the front part is a sleek silvery plastic finish that serves as a great kitchen counterpart. The look provides the coffee maker that premium feel to it and as a result it’s able to blend in most environments ranging from indoor kitchens and offices to outdoor events such as parties.
The BVMC-KG6-001 makes use of the patented award winning Keurig K-Cup packs for coffee, cocoa and tea. This gives you a wide variety of over 250 gourmet packs to choose from. On top of that, the packs also allow you to customize various drinks in case of guests.
In addition to that, the coffee maker also makes use of the Keurig My K-Cup. This reusable coffee filter allows you to brew gourmet coffee from your desired coffee grounds. Unfortunately, the My K-cup is sold separately but cheaply.
Most coffee makers usually involve a complicated cleaning process but thanks to the use of K-cups, cleaning the BVMC-KG6-001 is easier despite it not being dishwasher safe. Besides that, the coffee maker features a removable drip tray that allows you to accommodate larger mugs like travel mugs when brewing. There’s also a removable 40-ounce water reservoir that allows easier cleaning and also ensures multiple brewing without the need to refill again.
Another feature is the coffee makers ability to automatically shut off once it’s done brewing hence conserving your power.
Ease of Use
Unlike most coffee makers that come with long and complicated manuals, Mr. Coffee kitchen appliances are well known to feature simplicity and still offer great performance. The BVMC-KG6-001 is no exception to this. To start off, detach the water reservoir and fill it with some clean water. After putting it back in place, lift the top part of the maker to reveal an opening where you place your desired K-cup. Using the user-friendly control panel on the right side of the maker, select your desired cup size ranging from 6, 8, to 10 ounces and press on start. It really does not get easier than this. The more the cup size desired the lighter the beverage prepared. The water reservoir is capable of preparing at least six cups before needing to be refilled.
The maker comes with a pre-heated water chamber that ensures your water is ready to prepare your beverage in under a minute. Because the coffee maker brews directly into your cup, there’s usually little to none mess to clean up after brewing and this makes cleaning a lot easier.
