I love coffee. I really do. I wouldn’t say that I am addicted to it because I can go days without any. It has nothing to do with the caffeine either because I can drink coffee late at night and still fall asleep with no problems.
For me, I find coffee soothing. Some people like to relax and unwind with a cup of tea. For me, it’s coffee. Whenever I drink coffee I feel more relaxed and at peace.
I make at least one cup of coffee every morning. There are days when multiple cups of coffee are needed. I also stop by my favorite coffee shop often, but I try and limit that since it’s less expensive to make your own coffee.
I have a single cup brewer, but sometimes I need more than one cup. For that reason I enjoy having a coffee maker that can make multiple cups of coffee. It’s also a lot cheaper to make coffee with a regular brewer then with the pre-made cups or packs.
The holiday season is upon us which means many of us will be having plenty of friends and family over for dinner, parties or just to hang out. For that reason a regular brewer is important. But why settle with “regular” when you can have a coffee maker with a lot of “bells and whistles.”
Introducing the new line of filtered coffee makers from KRUPS SAVOY Collection.
Addressing the demands of true coffee-lovers, the KRUPS SAVOY Collection perfectly blends form and function. The line offers the latest technological advances and provides consumers a more unique brewing experience with a signature style. The EC314 model ($79.99) is the hero product in the SAVOY line and offers all of the bells and whistles consumers are looking for, wrapped up in a sleek, modern design that they want to display in their kitchens. A customized coffee experience is key with the SAVOY EC314 and the machine features a variety of functions that allow users to enjoy their coffee just the way they like it.
I was sent the EC314 model to review. This came at a perfect time because I only have a single cup brewer and I was looking for a coffee maker where I could make multiple cups at one time to serve to friends and family for the holidays.
I do love the design of this coffee maker. It’s nice to look at. It has a sleek, yet high tech look to it. I also like that the coffee pot it’s self sits inside the machine. In a way I think it protects it from being accidentally bumped. I also think it helps the machine to take up less room too because you don’t have the pot sticking out.
One of my complaints I had with previous coffee machines is that even though it kept the coffee warm for a few hours – it wasn’t hot. I like my coffee hot. With the KRUPS EC314 it keeps your coffee warmed to your desired temperature for up to four hours. I love that it does it for such a long period of time. That means I can enjoy a freshly brewed cup of coffee before I leave for work and have another when I get home (I work locally and only for two hours).
When it comes to having guests over people want coffee at different times. It’s nice to know that hot coffee will be available to them for up to four hours at a time.
One of the reasons why I purchased a single brewer is that mostly I am the only one who drinks coffee on a regular basis in my home. My teenagers drink it from time to time, but not that often.
Using my regular brewer I felt obligated to make a whole pot of coffee, even if I just wanted one cup. With the KRUPS EC314 you can make as much coffee as you want. You don’t have to worry about waste.
Speaking of waste, this brewer comes with a reusable coffee filter. There is no need to purchase those paper filters anymore. Simply add your coffee, brew and when you are done toss out the coffee grinds or use them in creative ways. Believe it or not there are plenty of uses for coffee grinds – just Google it.
I’ve had coffee makers with water filters before, but they require you to purchase new filters and replace them frequently. The EC314 has an integrated water filtration system so there is no need to worry about constantly having to purchase expensive filters. The filter makes sure that you have a great cup of coffee every time.
I love the dual settings so that you can program your machine to go on at different times for weekdays and weekends. On weekdays I’m usually up by 7:00 AM and I like to enjoy coffee right away. On the weekends I tend to sleep in a little longer, so setting the coffee maker at 9:00 AM works for me.
