One-cup coffee makers are the perfect device for the on-the-go or single person household. Many of these are compatible with glass carafes. However, due to the large size of the standard glass pot, single serve makers cannot take carafes from all manufacturers.

Choosing a Carafe for Your Coffee Maker

To ensure your chosen glass carafe will fit your coffee machine, consider the following:

  • Size:Standard carafe sizes vary among manufacturers, making it important to check your machine takes the size of your chosen carafe.
  • Shape:Carafe shapes also vary, so consider whether the handle of your pot will fit on the cabinet.
  • Weight:Due to their brittle nature, you should opt for a lightweight carafe.

In summary, most electric drip coffee makers, and most one-cup brewers are compatible with glass carafes, however it is essential to double-check the size, shape and weight of your carafe and capsule machine before purchase.
