At our testing facility, we reviewed the Mr. Coffee Single Cup with Built-in Grinder BVMC-SCGB200 as part of our Coffee machines review program. The criteria below were used to evaluate Drip coffee makers like this one in our lab tests.
Models without a score in this category are those that brew into single cups or are self-serve models. In the second case, the coffee is in a tank, and the cup is filled by pressing against the dispenser lever. Each is evaluated on a range of things, including comfort, tendency to drip while pouring, balance, and ease of emptying the last liquid.
Using this rating, you can get a fair idea of how easy it is to operate, refill, and clean an appliance.
The ideal brewing temperature for coffee is between 195°F and 205°F for about five minutes; this rating indicates the capability of reaching that temperature along with the concentration of the coffee.
A brand owner’s satisfaction rating is based on the proportion of owners who would highly recommend their automatic drip coffee maker to a friend or family member.
Predicted brand reliability ratings are based on the average number of problems per unit in the first four years of ownership among estimated newly purchased automatic drip coffee makers.
There were no standouts in terms of features in this model.
It fell short of recommended guidelines for brewing temperature and duration.
To test coffee makers, we brewed a full pot using a filter filled almost to the top, as some consumers might do.
In this test, the machine sometimes overflowed.
According to our assessments of setup, operation, and cleanup, this item is not very convenient to use.
While the coffee is brewing, the carafe cannot be removed.
The results of initial break-ins still showed that some plastic off-tastes could be detected in hot water poured through the machine, but not in brewed coffee.
Despite the built-in grinder and thermal travel cup for keeping your brew warm, coffee aficionados will be disappointed with this single-serve coffee maker. The machine doesn’t hold the optimal temperature for long enough for it to make high-quality coffee, which is why it’s rated just Good in terms of brew performance. Our testers also found it to be less convenient. There are better models with similar features at a similar price.
