For us, coffee is one of the most enjoyable drinks in the world! As a result, we and the abcoffee team decided to dedicate all the equipment reviews of this month to coffee equipment. So for our second article of the month, we decided to bring you the Moccamaster Cup-One review.
The Cup-One is a single-serve coffeemaker, that features a specially designed brew-basket that brews a perfect cup of coffee in just four minutes. This unique brewer accommodates a variety of mug shapes and sizes for convenience, making it perfect for those who want to enjoy the real taste of coffee, one cup at a time.
Despite Moccamaster Cup-One was built for a single cup, it’s based on Technivorm’s famous 10-cup version like the Moccamaster KBG Select. It looks and functions very similarly which is great since the 10-cup version it’s known for its performance.
This unit offers a simple to operate single-serve brewing experience that can produce a 1.25 cup of coffee in 4 minutes. Water is heated quickly by the unique copper boiling element, maintaining temperatures between 196-205°F (91-96°C) for ideal extraction. The cone-shaped brew-basket design allows a perfect saturation of the grounds for a total extraction of flavor and aromas.
Thanks to the temperature range, and the pre-infusion cycle that preps the coffee ground before brewing, you will always end up with an excellent cup of coffee.

We already said this in the Moccamaster KBG Select review but we love these machines because they always brew a great cup of coffee.
Most of the times, these machines will make better coffee than most of us. Yes, you can control the variables in-depth with manual pour overs, but you will have to be at your best if you want to beat these machines.
A unit like the Cup-One delivers a consistent flow of water within the ideal temperature range with just a single press of a button. You don’t need to worry about technique or water temperature, simply press the start and wait for your cup of coffee.
We are not saying that you should substitute all your manual pour overs. What we are trying to say is that sometimes automation is synonymous with convenience and good coffee. Even professional baristas will envoy the convenience of a machine like the Moccamaster Cup-One.
If you are looking for a single-serve coffee maker it will be difficult to find a better option than the Moccamaster Cup-one. It is easy to use, fast and it produces one of the best cups of coffee we have had.
The Moccamaster Cup-One is a great single-serve coffee maker with extraordinary performance and phenomenal coffee.
