What We Like

  • ​Good tasting cup of coffee
What We Don't Like
  • ​Lightweight plastic
  • ​Can't use a regular mug
  • ​Switch can weaken

​A full-sized coffeemaker produces a nice cup of coffee, but it's wasteful when you only need one or two cups. They also tend to take up a fair amount of counter space.

Of course, you could stop at the coffee shop, but who wants to wait in line to pay for overpriced coffee every day?

A single-serve coffee pot works faster than a full-sized brewer. They're compact, light, and able to perk coffee directly into a travel mug.

The AdirChef Grab N' Go Personal Coffee Maker is a popular model that seems to satisfy these requirements, so we decided to examine it further.

​AdirChef Grab N' Go Personal Coffee Maker Review

AdirChef Grab N' Go Personal Coffee Maker with 15 oz. Travel Mug, Black/Stainless Steel

​The entry-level AdirChef Grab N' Go Personal Coffee Maker is a simple and straightforward product for making single cups of coffee in a hurry.

It's available in seven trendy colors. And with its compact size and three-minute perk time, this electric, automatic model is a cheap and cheerful way to get your morning caffeine fix.

The travel mug that comes with the AdirChef single-serve coffee machine makes it easy to save money and reduce waste. It's tapered, so it fits most cup holders and is easy to take with you.

When you want to bring the whole machine with you, AdirChef sells a padded travel pouch separately. So, yes, this is a portable coffee maker you can travel with!

​Who Is This Product For?

​When you have a busy schedule, the AdirChef Grab N' Go Personal Coffee Maker may meet your needs.

Add the cream and sugar to the bottom of the travel mug and start the machine. When it's finished, you can rinse it quick, grab your coffee, and go.

The single-cup AdirChef coffee machine is also ideal for individuals who want a coffee pot but lack space.

You can make a cup of coffee, rinse it clean, and hide the entire system in a drawer, purse, or cupboard to get it out of the way.

It's excellent for a cubicle, dorm, van life, or camping trailer.

​What's Included?

​When you purchase the personal AdirChef coffeemaker, you get the machine, a reusable filter, and a holding basket.

It also comes with a plastic travel mug and cover that matches the coffee pot.

Everything is dishwasher safe, but you may want to wash the cup and lid by hand to prevent warping or damage to the plastic.

​Overview of Features

​When you first open the box, you'll notice the AdirChef Grab N' Go Personal Coffee Maker consists of lightweight plastic. Since this compact design is only slightly larger than a standard thermal mug, you can put it almost anywhere. ​

The machine's automatic shutoff feature turns the coffeemaker off as soon as it finishes. This feature saves power, but it also means that the coffee pot has no burners in the bottom. You'll never have to spend the day wondering if you remembered to turn the pot off again.

To make the coffee, the AdirChef Grab N' Go uses a reusable mesh filter instead of traditional paper filters. And while it does tend to let a bit of grit through to the bottom of the cup, not having to buy paper filters saves money and reduces waste. It's also quick and easy to clean.

The 15 oz thermal mug that comes with this personal coffee machine has stainless-steel on the outside, but plastic in the inside. It doesn't keep coffee hot as long as higher-quality mugs. However, the rubber grip on the outside is comfortable to hold, and the whole unit comes clean easily.

​How to Use

​To use the AdirChef Grab N' Go Personal Coffee Maker, fill the thermal mug with water to the desired level and add coffee grounds to the mesh filter basket.

Then, pour the water into the back of the machine, add cream or sugar to your cup, and set it into the brewer.

Press the button, and when the water stops, rinse out the basket to get it ready for the next use.

​Alternative

MiXPRESSO makes a personal coffeemaker similar to the AdirChef model.

It perks into the 14 oz travel mug using ground coffee in a reusable filter. It automatically turns itself off and is dishwasher-safe just like the AdirChef personal brewer.

The travel cup it perks into is almost the same as the AdirChef without the fun colors. The mug is one ounce smaller, but that isn't a lot when you think about it.

The MiXPRESSO model costs a few dollars more and doesn't have an optional travel bag you can purchase, but you might find the extra few dollars are worth it for the warranty.

​Conclusion

​For a cheap coffee pot that makes delicious coffee one cup at a time, the AdirChef Grab N' Go Personal Coffee Maker can get the job done. 

It has no timer or fancy features, and likely wouldn't stand up to heavy, daily use, but it's good enough for occasional use or a daily cup of coffee.

​The AdirChef perks fast and cleans quickly, and when you're busy, that's what you want.
