Hamilton Beach The Two-Way Brewer - 49980

The Scoop

For all the coffee drinkers and aficionados who despise the long café lines, dread the overwhelming coffee options or need a fix for those early morning caffeine pains – fear no more! There’s finally an affordable, low-maintenance coffeemaker that can brew basic or premium-roast coffee in a fraction of the cost as the coffeehouse: The Two-Way Brewer.

With stainless steel durability and twice the brewing options as other leading coffeemakers, the Two-Way Brewer doubles as a compact single-serve coffeemaker for everyday personal enjoyment and a full 12-cup pot machine. Whether it’s 7:00 AM or a late-night indulgence, this two-for-the-price-of-one coffeemaker lets coffee drinkers decide the right size to start their day and enjoy the best convenience for their schedule.

If simplifying your morning wake-up routine is a top priority, then rise and shine with the “single-serve side” which can brew a standard-size cup or travel mug-size cup for solo enjoyment. If entertaining or serving more than one coffee drinker is your preference, simply switch to the “carafe side” and let the Two-Way Brewer make a full 12-cup pot. So much in so little space, the Two-Way Brewer provides twice the brewing options using less space on your countertop than two separate coffee machines.

  1. Two ways to brew -- single cup or full 12-cup glass carafe
  2. 14-oz. stainless steel travel mug with lid and 12-cup glass carafe included
  3. Standard-size "single-serve side" water reservoir for easy, one-time filling
  4. "Carafe-side" water reservoir with extra-large capacity and measurement markings "Single-serve side" Brew Basket comes with a mesh filter to hold ground coffee or pre-packaged soft pods
  5. "Single-serve side" multilevel cup rest adjusts/stacks to fit all cup and mug sizes
  6. Pod holder snaps onto the single-serve brew basket to hold soft pods
  7. Brew strength selector for brewing REGULAR or BOLD preferred flavor/strength
  8. Control panel and display, with hour and minute buttons to program the brewing time up to 24 hours beforehand
  9. Equipped with programmable timer with 2-hour automatic shutoff
Two-Way Brewing Options

Whichever way you decide to brew, the Two-Way Brewer lets you do both. For a single cup when you're on the go, the "single-serve side" lets you add grinds directly into the mesh filter that fits the brew basket or insert a soft pod with the pod holder. For the stronger caffeine fixes or on days you want to enjoy cup-after-cup without brewing each time, the "carafe-side" makes a full 12-cup pot for your drinking disposal. And if you forget to turn it off, no worries. The Two-Way Brewer's nonstick, keep-hot plate retains the piping-hot coffee after brewing and shuts off automatically after two hours

Brew in Advance and Wake Up to Hot Coffee

Want to sleep in for five more minutes? Go ahead, get some more beauty sleep and take advantage of the built-in, programmable clock and timer. Its hour and minute features let you program your ideal coffee-drinking time up to 24 hours in advance.

Brewing with Soft Pods

No time for measuring or scooping? Prefer the convenience of quickly dropping in a pre-packaged, pre-flavored pod? The Two-Way Brewer is designed with a pod holder that brews any brand of soft pod coffee and still gives coffee drinkers the complete sensory experience of tasting freshly ground coffee, without the hassle of messy grinds or exact measuring.

For coffee lovers who live for the pleasure of roasting their own beans every day, this Two-Way Brewer offers an added bonus for the extra effort. Equipped with a Brew Strength Selector, you can you choose REGULAR and give your tastebuds the simplicity of standard medium-grind coffee, or you can go BOLD and select a decaf, finer grind or a premium roast brand, such as Starbucks or Melitta for richer flavor.

About Beans, Grounds and Soft Pods*

Did you know that there are four factors that can dramatically reduce a coffee's freshness? Oxygen, moisture, heat and light. Keep in mind that because less of its surface area is exposed to air, whole bean coffee typically stays fresh longer than ground coffee. According to the National Coffee Association of USA, it's recommended that brewers should ration out individual amounts of coffee to grind and brew every time, to preserve its freshness and ensure better-tasting coffee. *Source: 2010, National Coffee Association, USA, Inc.


Remember, the Two-Way Brewer unit will only brew one side at a time. For a particular preference, simply switch the lever left or right. The unit can be used with any soft pod coffee brand, available in the coffee aisle of your local grocery store, or with any loose coffee grounds. The Two-Way Brewer is not compatible with the K-Cup pack.

When in doubt about freshness, look for a "use by" date on the package or follow the online recommendations of your coffee brand. To avoid overflow of ground coffee, use slightly less coffee when brewing decaf or flavored brands. For hotter coffee: rinse the travel mug with warm water; then replace with travel mug lid and brew directly into the travel mug with lid in place. Remember, adding cold milk or cream to your coffee can affect the heat. First, warm milk or cream before adding to ensure the hottest cup.

Customer Reviews

Makes great coffee, and very easy to clean.
Farmer Bob
In the morning, you can make a full pot for the family and if you drink coffee throughout the day like I do, the single cup is great!
Retired in Texas
I love that I can use my own coffee in the single serve side, as I do not like those pods!

Have had this coffeemaker for a few weeks and am extremely pleased. Very simple to operate, makes super hot coffee and love the idea of making a pot or just a mug/travel mug. The single serve side utilizes Senseo pods which are quite good and easy to find in my grocery store. You can also use non-pod coffee so options are limitless. It took me a lot of time to find the perfect coffeemaker for my household - some of the reviews are scary (flooded kitchens). I absolutely love this coffeemaker - and since I can also make just a cup of very hot tea, this has everything I could need.

I'm only an owner of the product for 1 day, however I have brewed 6 single serves and 1 pot and so far, it works as described.

What I really loved about this machine was/is the concept. However, when I was deciding to purchase, I thought that it required the Senseo pads for the Single cup brew as there was very little info in the product features.

After receiving it, I was pleasantly surprised that the single cup brewing contained a little permanent filter that can be used with standard coffee grinds, awesome don't need to pay for the Senseo if I don't want to. It also came with a pack of 18 senseo pads as well.

Last night was perfect test of the single cup concept. I had already programmed and prepped my 7AM standard coffee brew, however I still wanted a cup of coffee (this happens often). So I switched over to the single cup and brewed my cup, then switched back and pressed the program button to ensure it would still brew the main pot at 7am. Worked like a charm!! Before I would have had to brew the entire 6 cups that were ready, toss out most of it and setup my morning brew all over again.

So far, very happy with the product. I will adjust review / rating as required, but so far 5 stars.

Update : 12/29/2012 - 1 Year later

It has been a year and the machine is holding up well. No leaks, no cracks, not even surface wear. If I were to notice one thing from day 1 to day 370 is the single cup brewer puts out about 4 drips after it shuts off where as it didn't do that 6 months ago. Again, that is the ONLY thing I notice after a year of use.

We brew about 1 pot in the main craft in the morning, and at least 3 cups on the side using the permanent filter every day. If it were to break today for any reason I would say it was worth the price and would purchase again.

My 20 year old GE under cabinet coffee maker gave up the spirit and my wife has been wanting to try a Keurig. Not me, I grind my frozen beans and immediately brew a pot. Besides, that K-cup stuff gets pricey compared to buying whole beans. So, this rig seemed to strike a good balance.

After owning it for a month, I remain quite pleased with this model. My wife gets to have her Senseo flavors while I enjoy the traditional method. While I won't critique the Senseo flavors, they are far "greener" than the plastic K-cups. (I have I mentioned how much I hate plastic water bottles strewn everywhere?) The Senseo pods easily disappear with a flick of the in-sink waste disposal.

The travel mug is OK, I suppose, but it probably wouldn't be my first choice for travel since it uses an O-ring lid compression seal instead of a screw on lid. The Senseo side of the coffemaker also allows for ground coffee or drop some instant coffee (yuk), cocoa or tea bag.

There is a water sight indicator on the carafe side just in case you need to remember if water was previously added.

The only possible negative is the clock/timer setting in that it is easy to accidentally change the hours or minutes while handling the unit. The clock has no lock feature. No biggie, really.

If anyone seeks a dual purpose coffeemaker, this Hamilton-Beach product is just the ticket.
