Choosing a coffee maker is not a task to be taken lightly—especially for those who drink a cup of joe morning, noon, and night. But with every brand promising to brew the perfect cup, it’s can be hard to make the right choice.

That’s why we turn to reviews from the customers themselves when shopping for kitchen appliances. The Hamilton Beach Single Serve Coffee Maker has almost 10,000 customer reviews on Amazon, and 6,040 of those are perfect five-star ratings.

So, what makes the Hamilton Beach model better than the rest? According to reviews, it’s the no-fuss, no-frills way it brews a piping hot cup of coffee.

Users love how easy it is to prep the perfect cup of coffee. After all, who needs more work before they’ve had their first cup in the morning? “It's old school,” wrote one reviewer. “No bright glowing LED screens, programmed selections, or extra stuff. There is really no learning curve with this machine.”

To use it, pour coffee grounds into the scoop, which acts as the machine’s filter as well—no paper filter needed. Insert the scoop into its reservoir, and select the bold or regular setting to start brewing. It should take less than 90 seconds to prepare your coffee.

Customers are also raving about the ease of cleaning this coffee maker. Grounds shake right out of the filter, and it only needs a little rinse between uses. The scoop filter, secondary filter, filter well, and cup rest can all be placed in the dishwasher for a more thorough cleaning.

All that, plus it’s at a price we can get behind. This single-serve coffee maker costs $39.99 on Amazon. You can also get a larger-brew option with a glass carafe for $59.99, which may work better for households with several coffee-drinkers under one roof.

Of course, if you love the option to make a frothy latte with a layer of freshly steamed milk, this probably isn't the coffee maker for you. But if you’re all about making the perfect cup of black coffee as you go about your morning routine, this Hamilton Beach coffee maker is worth the purchase.
