Don’t let the craziness of life stop you from brewing a tasty cup of joe! Take it to go, with Capresso’s On-the-Go Personal Coffee Maker. This convenient brewer lets you call the shots, by letting you decide what to brew. Indulge your taste buds with a cup brewed from freshly ground beans, or simply brew your favorite pre-ground blend or soft coffee pods. This sleek and slim personal coffee maker also includes a 16-ounce stainless steel thermal travel mug that fits perfectly beneath the brew head.

Features and Functionality

  • Durable Casing: This personal coffee maker is encased with sleek stainless steel that matches the thermal travel mug.
  • Space Saver: Measuring just below a foot in height, this coffee maker will easily fit beneath most cabinets.
  • Convenient Parts: Remove the permanent filter and filter basket for an easy clean-up after each brew.
  • Illuminating Brew Button: The easily accessible brew button sits at the bottom front of the machine and stays illuminated during the brew process.
  • Auto-Off: The coffee maker and illuminated brew light automatically turn off when the brew cycle is complete.
  • Eco-Friendly - Living on planet Earth is the best, right? Capresso shows her a little love by including a removable permanent filter, saving you money and Mother Nature a little less waste from disposable filters.
  • Versatility - Brew your favorite pre-ground blend or try a soft coffee pod. We recommend sticking with the pre-ground option, as this worked best during SCG testing.
  • Dishwashing is Divine - Clean-up is easy with this personal coffee maker! The stainless steel travel mug, coffee filter and the removable filter basket are all dishwasher safe.
  • Hot Top! - While this personal coffee maker brews amazingly hot coffee (we clocked it in at 190°F!), it also heats the top of the machine in the process. To avoid those "ouch!" moments, keep those delicate digits clear of the top lid during and right after brewing.
  • Condensation - This machine is clearly working hard to brew your coffee! As proof, you may notice a little "sweat" on the front of the machine during the brew process. Nothing a single paper towel can't handle!
Tips and Tricks

Heat water for tea or cocoa by completing the brew cycle sans coffee.

For the best overall flavor, 3 - 5 tablespoons of ground coffee is recommended, but can be adjusted to taste. Using more than 6 tablespoons is not recommended as the filter may overflow.

Can you use a paper filter with this machine? I want to make coffee at my desk and it is much easier to dispose of a paper filter than running back and forth to the kitchen to clean a reusable filter.
fritzdfk on Feb 8, 2015
Best Answer: I wanted to add to my previous reply that I have now found a paper filter that works with this coffeemaker. It is the Melitta #2. You have to wet the filter basket to help it to stick to the sides, then press the paper filter into the basket, aiming to get it centered. Then smush the sides of the filter against the basket. This sounds harder than it is. There is a little overlap on one side, sort of a lip, which I cut off at first, but then found out it doesn't interfere with the coffee making so now I leave it. The filter won't reach up to the top of the filter basket on all sides, but that doesn't interfere with anything either. It will be sufficient to contain your coffee grounds. The paper may cut down a bit on the coffee sediment, but I didn't think the flavor changed, and I much prefer using a filter to make less of a mess. Filters are biodegradeable and you can even mulch them in your compost pile if you want. I hope this solution works for others. I am still very happy with this coffeemaker.

Can you use this with a normal mug? How tall is the thermal mug that it comes with?
Sylvia B on Jan 1, 2017
Best Answer: Included mug is 7" high and fits into 7 3/8" opening so any mug shorter than that should work, although you may see some splash at the end of the brew cycle for a short mug.

What are soft coffe pods??
A shopper on May 15, 2016
Best Answer: I think they are like the ones used by the small coffee makers you see in hotel rooms. I just scoop grounds directly into the filter basket.

Is the coffee maker BPA-free?
Sandy C on Mar 19, 2015
Best Answer: As far as we know, yes. For Jura Capresso, we’ve searched high and low for some BPA-free facts, but have only received a verbal guarantee that they are BPA-free and FDA approved. Take a look at our blog on the ABC's of BPA for more information.

What brand of soft coffee pods work in this machine?
Barb m on Jan 15, 2015
Best Answer: According to the manual, you can use 7g pods (such as ESE pods) to brew with this machine. If you prefer a stronger flavor, you can use 2 pods at the same time, stacked in the brew basket.

This may sound like an odd question, but does the plate where the cup sits during brewing have an indentation for the cup base, or is it perfectly flat? I have a set of pottery mugs which I love. They hold approximately 16 ounces but are just slighty over 4-5/8" tall. I'm wondering if I could place something there to raise the mug to help reduce splatter.

Very goodReview by Itty bitty
I have the fancy pod cup coffeemaker but I also bought this Capresso machine about a year ago and I love it. If you use it correctly, it will give you the perfect cup of coffee. I use my ground coffee and save a lot of money rather than those pricey pods. Whenever it breaks, I will buy another. I have nothing but good things to say about this machine. (Posted on 7/16/2017)
Pretty good coffee maker for the priceReview by Lourie
Makes good cup of cofee (Posted on 10/23/2015)
Used in motel rooms for month on tripReview by Ariizonabirder
I bought this to pack in our SUV for month long trip to Arizona. It's small so this was a plus. But I nearly ruined my LLBean canvas shirt because the ss mug that comes with coffee maker has a poor design and drips down your chin when you drink from it. It also does not pour well into another mug which I finally had to resort to because it's impossible to drink from without spiling all over. The filter doesn't filter the coffee grounds adequately and you end up with grounds in your cup. Somehow grounds also get down into the waterwell no matter how careful one is. On positive side, cleaning up is fast but I think a small paper filter would be a huge improvement to make cleanup easier and to filter out the grounds better than the fine mesh filter does now. I'm still using the coffee maker because it makes the best cup of coffee I've been able to make with all of my coffee makers. It's an excellent strong cup of coffee. I make two in a row because I like two cups in the morning. I can't recommend this coffee maker until the design gets changed some including the ss mug and filter. (Posted on 5/26/2015)
very convenient!Review by NannersYo
Got this from a friend and we love it for busy morning when we are both trying to get the baby ready and get to work on different schedules. (Posted on 4/23/2015)
Overall good value. Up close pros and cons are worth noting. Review by jackied
(1) high flavor-to-price ratio
(2) small footprint
(3) portable + ez operation for on-the-go solo cup
(4) built-in filter reduces waste

(1) so-so stainless quality
(2) side sweating during brewing process
(3) post-drip after shut-off
(4) travel mug feels cheaply made

Good flavor for the money if you can adjust to some drawbacks (Posted on 4/3/2015)
happy with my purchaseReview by Grinch
This makes a nice cup of coffee and I appreciate that it doesn't use k-cups. The temperature of the coffee is perfect for me... it's hot but not so hot that I have to wait a long time to take a sip. (Posted on 3/28/2015)
Makes a good cup of coffeeReview by PamR
i've been trying this out for few weeks now, and am happy with the quality of the brew. Compared with my old Black & Decker, I have noticed the following: this brew has more body, similar to when I used to make cafe filtre with a French device. It also has a smoother taste. It's missing the "brightness" or more acidy quality that was more apparent in my old brew. But I'm not a fan of this quality, so that isn't a negative for me. It's messier to clean up compared to my B&D, because that maker used paper filters. I realize this is supposed to be better for the environment, however these thin paper sleeves decompose rapidly and you can even mulch them, so I doubt this is a big thing. I would be happier with a paper filter option. Some people have complained that the coffee comes out lukewarm. I found it's possible to make it hotter in the cup if you heat the cup with hot water before making the coffee. (If you use cold water to make the brew and use the metal cup to pour it in the maker, you have to stop at this point and heat the cup, which takes more time). Having said all that, the temperature in the cup works for me, as I don't like coffee to be steaming hot anyway. So to sum up, good coffee, a little more fuss and a little more mess than my B&D. The pros outweigh the cons, IMO. (Posted on 10/16/2014)
