DCM18 Brew n' Go Coffee Maker, with single thermal cup, $17.99

Well, this is a first! I've been "on the road" a lot lately, and haven't been able to test machines sitting back in the CoffeeGeek labs - and I was getting itchy. So I decided to do the first pro review "from the road" as it were - and on one of the cheapest coffee devices you might ever find.

Black and Decker has a series of ultra cheap single cup coffee brewers on the market. I found one version for $17.63 Canadian dollars, and another version for only $10 Canadian dollars. I couldn't resist - so I bought both units.

These "Brew N' Go" and "Cup at a Time" coffee makers are about as cheap as you'll find, price wise, for an electric auto drip coffee maker. One unit has some frills - it comes with two thermal cups. The other model's only frill is a permanent filter.

These units are small, extremely light weight, and will fit almost anywhere, even your little cubicle counter at work.

Because this review was written on the road, my testing tools were pretty limited. I had good coffee, I had a decent grinder, and, well, that's it. Oh - I had a needle thermometer - the kind you use when frothing milk. I sorely missed my Fluke digital dual probe thermometer and its instant read ability.
