Hamilton Beach The Scoop Single-Serve Coffeemaker - 49981
The Scoop Single-Serve Coffeemaker goes where no coffeemaker has gone before, brewing hotter, faster and better-tasting coffee than most gourmet machines out there. And, its benefits don't stop there. The Scoop Coffeemaker utilizes the simplicity of ground coffee and brews a customizable cup quickly: an 8 oz. cup in less than 90 seconds or a 14 oz. travel mug in under two-and-a-half minutes.
Aside from its versatility in using inexpensive coffee grounds to brew a great-tasting cup, The Scoop Coffeemaker is designed for ultra-simple preparation in three straightforward steps: 1) Scoop 2) Place 3) Brew. It features a steel mesh scoop for filtering freshly ground coffee and comes with a built-in, adjustable stand that flips to accommodate a standard-size cup or a taller travel mug.
All in all, The Scoop Single-Serve Coffeemaker offers affordability and no fuss with lots of options. There's no need for extra equipment, high-tech buttons or extra equipment, either.
Product Uses & Unique Features
Allowing for Various Coffee Grind Types
The Scoop Coffeemaker doesn't need pre-packaged K-Cup packs or coffee pods, which can get expensive, and not to mention stale, over time. Instead, it comes with a mesh scoop filter that gives users the choice of any flavor (caramel, hazelnut, vanilla, etc), any brand (Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts, etc.) and any strength (Regular or Bold) pleasing to their taste.
Differing Boldness Levels
With The Scoop Coffeemaker, versatility is key. Whether you decide to go with a mainstream brand coffee or stronger premium-brand coffee, you need a machine that understands and quickly adapts. Use the REGULAR setting for a quick basic, automatic drip coffee, or get an upgrade and choose BOLD for more fine grinds, decaf or stronger flavors premium-brand coffee like Starbucks or Melitta. Just remember that the finer the grind, the longer it takes to brew. For bolder coffee, the water passes through at a slower rate, but allows more contact time and better flavor extraction for a better-tasting cup when done brewing.
Measuring Proportions Appropriately
Not sure how much coffee to add when brewing? No worries -- each scoop filter is labeled with two measuring lines for exact serving amounts. And more isn't necessarily better, in this case. Overfilling the scoop doesn't allow room for brewing and water can overflow and spill over, ultimately meaning weaker coffee.
Adjusting the Cup Size
Before brewing, adjust the L-shaped cup rest to make sure your cup is as close to the dispensing nozzle as possible. For travel mugs, fit the cup rest against the coffeemaker and place your mug on top of the drip tray.
The Scoop Coffeemaker was awarded the "2012 Good Housekeeping Very Innovative Products (VIP) Award" by Good Housekeeping Research Institute. In addition, the Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA) gave it high rankings for its ability to use coffee grinds, instead of packs or pods, and simultaneously give users the freedom to choose their own flavor, strength and cup size for their coffee.

Tips & Care
Run one or two cycles through the machine before first use. When one cycle is complete, the coffeemaker automatically shuts off. When grinding your own coffee beans, remember to purchase beans that were recently roasted (within a week is best), and grind them every time you brew a fresh cup. When brewing, keep ground coffee below the MAX fill line and do not use more than 14 ounces (410 ml) of water. To stop brewing mid-cycle, press either REGULAR or BOLD, and the unit will shut off. If there is no water in the water reservoir and a brew button is pushed, the unit will not brew.

The bay can accommodate a 7-1/4" tall mug when the bracket is in it's lowest position, a 4-1/4" mug when it's in the highest position.
The coffee brews out plenty hot and fairly quickly, have seen some articles that says the HB doesn't get the coffee hot enough, it does for me. May help if you preheat the cup with some hot water before dispensing the coffee, I always do. I received the Kurig K55 coffee maker for Christmas and it does great too but I don't plan on putting all that money into K-Cup coffee. I used the reusable K-Cups as well, most don't work so good. If you like grinding your own beans, the course grind or French press grind is best for this maker. I have used some Peet's French Roast ground coffee with it, pressed the "Bold" button and it did great, that coffee is a very fine grind.
The ease of cleaning is a big plus! Simple to use and simple to clean, can't go wrong with that!
1. The negative reviewer didn't read the directions before using the product, or if they read them, they didn't follow them carefully. This especially applies to keeping both filters clean after each brew by rinsing them, and cleaning the water path once a month with vinegar/water mixture.
2. The reviewer has some kind of axe to grind with the manufacturer, maybe employment related, or past experience with another product from the same manufacturer, etc,,,, etc.
Despite some bad reviews on this Hamilton Beach Scoop coffee maker, basically stating that it doesn't make hot coffee, it leaks, the coffee tastes bad, has grinds in the bottom of the cup, or it is very weak, I decided to buy one to try it for myself. I read and carefully followed the directions and ran a couple of cups of water through it first. I noticed on the first cup, that not all the water I had put in with the cup I was using, returned to the cup the first time I cycled it. It was about 1 inch lower. Easy explanation, some of the water must be retained in the chamber where the heating element is located. I filled it the second time, carefully measuring the input and output levels in my test cup , and when finished the levels were exactly the same. I checked the temperature of the water and it was very HOT....
Now to make some coffee, I filled it to the normal level which is the lower mark on the metal part of the scoop, which is clearly described and illustrated in the included color pamphlet that comes along with the instruction book. I used a normal drip grind, of my current coffee favorite, Community Coffee. I hit the Bold button because I like a fairly strong cup of coffee, and away it went. Within seconds the water started dripping through the filters in the brewing area and coffee started pouring into the cup. By the way, I think some people are using the scoop to dump the coffee into the lower filter, which is not what you are supposed to to. You are supposed to place the scoop with the coffee in it, on top of the filter, so now there are 2 filters that the coffee will go through before it gets to your cup. That is probably the reason why some reviews said there were coffee grounds in the bottom of the cup. Here is what I did not see, splashing, coffee flying out onto the counter, imitations of Old Faithful , etc. etc... The coffee just poured into my normal sized coffee cup and that was that.
The coffee finished brewing, and I noticed that the level was down about an inch from the place where the water had been. Simple solution, the coffee itself had absorbed a small percentage of the water, and that is what was missing. I just poured a bit more water into the water hopper, hit the brew button again and I within seconds I had a full cup of piping hot , dark, and delicious coffee. So now I know, to fill the cup that I will be drinking out of, up to the top, before dumping it into the machine, so that the coffee will be at the proper level for me to add a bit of creamer, and it will be at the proper level in my cup. Not rocket science, just a bit of common sense.
Cleaning the 3 parts, after brewing coffee, was a snap. All three components pop out of the machine, drop of dishwasher soap, and rinse with some hot water, and done. If you clean the filters immediately after making a cup, just a strong rinse with hot water is enough. I use one of those sink sprayers to spray it. Time to clean, about 10 seconds. You can also put everything in the dishwasher, according to the instructions, but I didn't think that was really necessary.
As to the coffee, it actually was a tad dark for my taste, so the next cup I brew, I am going to use the normal setting rather than the bold setting for the brew, and it should be perfect. The machine looks like it is very well built, a lot of metal used in it's construction, and it's nice looking, and takes up a very small footprint on my counter top. I also compared the construction to some of the Keurig machines I saw, which looked very cheap and full of plastic in comparison.
If I have any issues with this machine, I will update the review, but if it is anything like the last Hamilton Beach Machine, the Brewstation 6 cup, which is going on it's 4th year, and still works perfectly, I don't anticipate much of a problem with the new one.
I had read quite a few reviews where users ordered some paper filters that fit this machine perfectly, and they report the coffee tastes a bit better with the paper filter, so I ordered a pack of them. Here is a link where you can order them and they are really inexpensive. [...]
