The Bottom Line

A cheap single-serve coffee maker, the Hamilton Beach 49970 Personal Cup's only selling point is its price. It also brews ESE soft pods and isn't K-Cup compatible. Check out the Mixpresso for a discount K-Cup machine.

Hamilton Beach 49970 One-Cup Overview

Ranking the best bargain brewers is an interesting exercise.

In some cases, like the Mixpresso K-Cup Brewer, it’s about finding a reasonably priced machine that performs well for the price. In other cases, like with the Hamilton Beach 49970, it’s about finding a dirt cheap unit that gets the job done.

This brewer only works with soft coffee pods, such as the Melitta brand pods, which means no K-Cup compatibility.

Pros

  • Brewer and required soft pods are cheap
  • Incredibly compact size

Cons

  • Not compatible with K-Cups
  • Mediocre quality coffee
  • Not many features
  • Not compatible with travel mugs

Overall Rating: 82
When it comes to grinders, burrs always beat blades. The Hamilton Beach Grind & Brew 45501 has an integrated blade grinder, chopping serious points off its Coffee Quality score.
