The Black & Decker Brew 'N Go (*Est. $25) receives a "very good" score for brew temperature and "good" score for convenience in one professional coffee maker roundup. Reviews say the Brew 'N Go is easy to operate: Put 2.5 tablespoons of coffee grounds in a paper filter or the machine's permanent filter, pour water in the machine and place the accompanying 15-ounce stainless-steel thermal mug under the spout. Lastly, flip the power switch and wait for the light to signal the coffee is ready.
Owners praise the Black & Decker Brew 'N Go's tapered mug, which fits most car cup holders, as well as its permanent filter and auto-shutoff feature. Because it brews directly into the travel mug, it's ideal for busy commuters who don't have time to mess with a whole pot of coffee. Most people say it produces good-tasting coffee, but be aware that using extra coffee for a stronger brew may cause grounds to overflow.
