A hybrid is defined as "something made up of a mixture of different aspects or components". Thus, an automobile is a hybrid if it can run on gas as well as on electric power. And a coffee maker is a hybrid if it can brew a single cup as well as 12 cups. This is exactly what the Hamilton Beach 49980Z The Scoop Two-Way Brewer does.
The two-way brewer is made of two sections. The main and larger section is intended to hold a 12-cup glass carafe sitting on a hot plate underneath a brewing chamber with a large brew basket. It is also here that the control panel, which consists of a backlighted LCD display and a number of buttons, is mounted.
To the right side of the brewer is a second, though smaller, brewing chamber. Below it is a space for the stainless steel travel mug with a capacity of 14 ounces that, like the 12-cup carafe, is included with the coffee machine.
The Hamilton Beach 49980Z is a flexible brewer that allows you to brew a single cup when you are the only one who would like a cup of coffee or up to 12 cups if the rest of the family or your visiting friends would also like one.
When preparing a single cup, you can use either Senseo coffee pods or loose coffee grounds which you can scoop and measure with the filter basket. For multiple cups, however, you can only use the former. The coffee brewer allows you to choose between a regular or strong brew. If you are preparing 12 cups and cannot wait to have your morning jolt, you can pause brewing to pour your first cup.
The machine has a programmable timer so you can wake up to the smell of freshly brewed coffee. And in case you forgot to turn it off, it will automatically shut itself in two hours.
Crafted with stainless steel and black plastic, the Hamilton Beach 49980z The Scoop Two-Way Brewer exudes a modern and sleek air. It certainly stands out among your other appliances sitting on the kitchen countertop.
