If you want a little more versatility I have a Bunn MCU I purchased for my morning rush out of the door coffee.

It uses “drawers” and allows single brewing for Kcups, pods, tea and ground coffee. I gave away my Keurig after purchasing it because it is super fast since it keeps a reservoir of water preheated. Clean up can be a little bit more involved that Keurig if you use ground coffee but it allows for a lot more selection and taste better. Really, it isn’t much more than rinsing out the brew drawer but that is more clean up than Keurig. Here is a link to it on Amazon.

*edited to remove Keurig. It made no sense to recommend it and then go on about what I replaced it with 🙂

I don’t know your budget, but I would look into a Bunn MCU. I’d stay away from espresso machines unless your mother is already grinding her own beans with a high dollar grinder. https://www.amazon.com/MCU-Single-Multi-Use-Coffee-Brewer/dp/B009PLQ5H2

The great thing about the MCU is it comes with a lot of accessories that allows for brewing grinds, k-cups, and pods. The negative is it’s single server, but the quality of coffee is generally better if you make it one cup at a time.

To directly answer your question, the Bunn My Cafe MCU is pretty good. It’s a single cup brewer, uses K-cups, ground coffee, and pods. It has a pulse brew setting that allows your grounds to sit in the water a bit longer as well for better extraction. It’s not exactly cheap, but you can find it for $120-$150 if you shop around.

 

Another option would be an Aeropress. My wife actually loves this one K-cup (iced tea) but we don’t have a Keurig. We figured out that if you open the cup you can brew the contents just fine in the AP. Plus it just so happens to be a great coffee maker for me as well. Hope that helps.

I highly recommend the BUNN MCU Single Cup Multi-Use Home Coffee Brewer.

I made coffee the regular way for years before finally getting this. It’s sooo much nicer. Easy. Fast. Convenient. Especially if your husband is the only one drinking coffee. He will always have a fresh cup of joe and nothing gets cold and poured down the drain. My daily coffee is Caza Trail Kona Blend. Pop in a cup and it’s ready in 60 seconds.

You can also use it for teas and hot chocolate.

I love the Bunn Mcu. If you only need one cup at a time, that would be my recommendation. I use one at the office and you can get a good cup of coffee in ~5mins including loading the ground coffee drawer. If you find yourself in a real rush, you also have the option of pods.

Replying to myself to point out Bunn makes something interesting, I can’t vouch for it myself, but maybe it’ll work for you? Bunn is pretty reliable.

I don’t have one, but Bunn is a well-respected coffee equipment maker and I’d personally seriously consider this one-serving maker.
