As a coffee lover, I’m quite particular about how I like my coffee, and I can’t find a single serve coffee maker that lives up to it. Sboly Coffee Maker, however, must be great! – REVIEW
What is this?
The Sboly Single Serve Coffee Brewer. is a thermal drip instant coffee machine that can brew both K-Cups and ground coffee.
What is inside the box?
Design and characteristics
The Sboly Single Serve Coffee Brewer. is a small machine, measuring in at just 5.25″ wide, 7.5″ deep, and 12″ tall. Designed to be compact and durable, it gets the job done without taking very much counter space.
This compact marvel, a filter-basket with a lid, is both more spacious and simpler to clean compared to the standard K-Cup ground coffee basket. The primary filter basket, known as the coffee pod holder, securely holds the convenient and speedy K-Cup pods. This machine’s standout feature, which attracted me, is its dual filter baskets.
The built-in water measurement insert is not only handy for pouring the correct amount of water into your coffee machine, but it also features a screen filter to keep debris out of your coffee. Steps of measurement include 14, 10, 8, and 6 ounces.
The Sboly Single Serve Coffee Brewer. brews 180-degree coffee in 3 minutes. The two buttons allow for the brewing of capsule or ground coffee and serve as the cleaning mode by holding both down at the same time.
This is a convenient addition, so I frequently depart from my house and ponder whether I left the coffee machine on. It solely brews a single serving of coffee for every refill of the water tank, which is handy because this coffee brewer will automatically turn off after brewing.
Although I use a full-sized K-Cup machine daily, this machine will serve several purposes for me. Primarily as a travel coffee maker when camping or staying at a hotel. I know hotels usually have a coffee maker in the room, but they never brew enough coffee, and you never know what has been in them. The Sboly Single Serve Coffee Brewer. is small enough to fit in my travel bag, and the latching lid means that the filter basket won’t fall out.
I was pleasantly surprised to find a travel tumbler included, as I was expecting a cheap tumbler. I was shocked to find that the tumbler I found was on par quality-wise with the ones you pay $15 to $20 for in stores. The bonus double handle was also a convenient feature for the machine.
The tray drip is easy to clean and removable. This is a nice feature for me as I prefer using my own grounds. It was effortless to clean and just a simple rinse made it spotless. It allows for longer bloom for the grounds by forcing the water through a sized K-Cup basket. The large ground coffee basket made for a lovely brew.
If the recess were suitable, it would be nice to plug in. However, the device remains outside and the cord needs to be inserted into the machine in the room. Although, it automatically turns off when done and the button will flash while the water is heating, then it will turn a solid color when brewing. Operation is as simple as pressing the button and pouring water into it.
What I Would Alter
Overall I really liked the Sboly Single Serve Coffee Brewer.. It does exactly what it should and the large basket for coffee grounds is right up my alley. I’m sure I’ll get a lot of use out of it every time I go camping or on a road trip.
