If you want a quick cup of coffee to jump-start your day, a single-serve coffee maker is an easy option.
You just pop in a pod, and you can brew a cup to go.
Consumer Reports tested more than two dozen machines from names like Keurig, Mr. Coffee and Starbucks.
They tested for temperature and speed, as well as taste.
One of the slowest was the $300 Bunn MyCafe MCP. The $35 Gevalia G-90 had a tough time getting started.
When the tests were done, the $130 Dolce Gusto Genio from DeLonghi came out on top. It brewed hot coffee quickly.
It uses only Nescafe brand capsules, so you only have 16 varieties to choose from.
As for taste, trained experts found none of the single-serve systems brewed top-quality coffee.
