Brewing with a Single-Serve Pack
For some java drinkers, pouring fresh-ground coffee into their coffeemaker is the perfect start to their day. For other coffee lovers, being able to quickly insert a pre-packaged, single portion pack into their coffeemaker and enjoy a piping hot cup in a few minutes is a match made in heaven. The FlexBrew® Single-Serve Coffeemaker offers the added convenience factor of a pack holder, which allows quick instant brewing in less time than an in-store café experience. Simply insert the single-serve pack and push the lever down – that’s it.

Pre-packaged coffee isn’t for everyone or every palate. The FlexBrew® Single-Serve Coffeemaker caters to coffee aficionados by featuring a steel mesh scoop filter that holds a variety of fresh-tasting ground coffee.

Note: Coffee that is ground too finely will cause an overflow. If you are unsure about the coarseness of your coffee, check with your coffee manufacturer.
Alternative Options to Coffee
