Starbucks has officially jumped on the barrel-aged coffee wagon. The coffee gian...
When I found the Hamilton Beach 42115 coffee maker, I was looking for a machine that would not take up so much space since my counter is packed as it is. Since this was my only requirement, I simply chose a model that was extremely affordable and looked sophisticated and modern. To my pleasant surprise, the Hamilton Beach 42115 does a great job of brewing and works much better than any of my older model coffee makers. The best part is that this particular machine is half the price of expensive models but does an equally good job.
The Hamilton Beach 42115 coffee maker comes with a wide range of features and a sufficient capacity of up to 14 ounces. This is almost double the amount my old model offered which is great because I always had to brew two cups in order to satisfy my cravings for coffee. There is also no need at all for a carafe which is extremely beneficial when brewing and cleaning. Almost all models I have ever seen all require some sort of steel or glass carafe.
Since the brew can go directly into the cup, there is no need to worry about dropping the carafe. Also, not having this part means less cleaning when brewing. I can’t remember how many years I have had to wash the carafe and the coffee cup. The Hamilton Beach 42115 coffee maker cuts the maintenance in half and allows me to spend more time out of the kitchen.
Without any compromise in taste quality, the Hamilton Beach 42115 brews fast and can complete the entire process in just minutes. I was surprised to find that the taste is actually better than the coffee shops that charge much more for a cup. Another convenience of this coffee maker is the water tank that slides out smoothly for easy access. With my old coffee maker, I would have to carry the entire machine under my arm before refilling or pouring over the sink. For many years I have wished that I had a machine that didn’t require so much work and now I have found it.
The best feature the Hamilton Beach 42115 coffee maker has to offer is that it triples as a hot chocolate maker and a tea brewer. Most coffee drinkers including myself appreciate variety so it is nice to have an option for different flavors. This component is also beneficial because I can brew coffee for myself as well as make hot chocolate for the kids. I end up saving much more money not only from not buying coffee from the store but also tea and hot cocoa.
More Reasons to Buy
The Hamilton Beach 42115 coffee maker also gives other reasons to buy besides just basic features. The taste is far better than what my old machines offered and is likely because of the permanent filter built-in. There is also a pod adaptor which makes brewing more versatile.
Another area that benefits from the Hamilton Beach 42115 is overall maintenance and cleaning. The sliding water reservoir is also removable so anytime I need to do a quick rinse there is no complicated setup involved and no need to take apart the entire unit.
Other great reasons to buy include parts that are dishwasher-safe, compact size, and even an automatic shutoff feature which helps to conserve energy. All in all, the Hamilton Beach 42115 coffee maker is a smart choice and great value.
