TL;DR: This single-cup Mr. Coffee brewer that comes with its own travel mug is only $54.99 at Walmart. It’s sold for $89.99 on the brand’s website, so you’ll save $35.
Never is a coffee maker more important than in the wee hours before a mandatory 7:45 a.m. power lecture (*shudders*). Machines of the single-serve variety can come in real handy for those mornings when you barely have time to squeeze in a shower, let alone a mad dash to your dining hall or local café, because they require little hassle on your part and brew really fast — fast enough to whip up a cup of piping hot coffee before you can even wipe the sleep out of your eyes.
Here’s the thing about single-serve coffee makers, though: A lot of them rely on eco-unfriendly pods filled with pre-ground coffee that’s long gone stale, resulting in cups of coffee that taste weak and watery. The best-tasting joe requires freshly ground beans, which is one of the two reasons why we’re such fans of the Mr. Coffee Single-Cup Coffeemaker: It’s among the few single-serve machines that feature a built-in grinder, which means it can turn whole beans into fine grounds in less than 15 seconds and squeeze out all the flavors to make rich, full-bodied java that tastes like it was made in a traditional drip machine.
As for the other reason why we love this Mr. Coffee brewer: It’s currently on sale at Walmart for nearly 40% off its suggested retail price, a deal that will save you $35.
Brewing coffee with the machine works like this: Simply pour in your beans, hit the “Brew” button, and sit back while the coffee maker works its magic. (Out of freshly roasted beans? That’s cool — this thing works with grounds, too.) Once you’ve had your caffeine fix, just remove its filter and pop it in the dishwasher for easy cleanup.
Every Mr. Coffee single-serve brewer comes with a stainless steel travel mug for convenient, on-the-go coffee-guzzling, but you can use almost any cup with it since it’s equipped with an adjustable tray that fits mugs of all sizes.
The Mr. Coffee Single-Cup Coffeemaker retails for $89.99, but you can get it at Walmart for just $54.99 — a 39% savings.
