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 a basic or premium roast coffee in a fraction of the time and cost as the coffeehouse: The 2-Way Brewer.

With stainless steel durability and twice the brewing options as other leading coffeemakers, the 2-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.

Take it to go
If simplifying the morning wake-up routine is 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. So much in so little space, the Two-Way Brewer provides gourmet service, gourmet options and gourmet appeal at a fraction of the standard price and in a fraction of the traditional space.

2-Way Brewing Options
Whichever way you decide to brew, the 2-Way Brewer lets you do both. 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. On days you want to enjoy cup-after-cup without brewing each time, the carafe-side makes a full 12 cup pot.

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.

Single-Serve Brew Function
With the mesh filter that’s included, adding your flavored, decaf or premium roast brand coffee grinds couldn’t be easier. Just remember that more isn’t always necessarily better in this case; use slightly less coffee grinds to avoid overflow and weaker-tasting coffee.

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. Equipped with a Brew Strength Selector, you can you choose whether you’d like your coffee REGULAR or BOLD.

Test Kitchen Tips

  • Remember, the 2-Way Brewer unit will only brew one side at a time. For a particular preference, simply switch the lever left or right.
  • Any soft pod coffee brand, available in the coffee aisle of your local grocery store, or any loose coffee grounds can be used. The 2-Way Brewer is not compatible with the K-Cup® pack*.
  • When in doubt about coffee ground 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 on the go, first rinse your travel mug with warm water.
  • First, warm milk or cream before adding it to coffee to ensure the hottest cup.
