It can make a cup of coffee and a cup of tea at the same time. Or it can brew one caffeinated and one decaf cup of coffee, or a strong and a weak cup of coffee all at once.
It is great for co-existence... If you want coffee and your significant other drinks tea - no reason to fight. You can both satisfy your needs and brew simultaneously with the same machine.
Following are some reviews of dual coffee makers that I hope you'll find useful.
This coffee maker is a dual machine and brews two pots at once, and it is sold at a good price, about $35.
It has two separate brewing chambers and they have two permanent nylon coffee filters
It can also serve as a single serve coffee maker and you can brew just an individual cup of coffee if you wish. But there's a drawback: if you brew only one cup, you have to use the left side; but what if you want to brew tea only on the right side (for example, if you think that if you use the same side alternatively for tea and coffee the tea will have a taste of coffee) - well, you can't. Unless you brew something in the right pot too. In other words: you either brew two cups, or one cup but only on the left side.
It comes with two stainless steel 15-ounce thermal travel mugs included, but you can insert your own mug. It allows you brew two separate drinks, such as coffee or tea, or two different coffee drinks.
It brews in 4-5 minutes and makes hot coffee. But if you like a very hot or boiling coffee, it may not be what you expect. It is good for many people who like just regular hot coffee.
The coffee maker does not have the all bell-and-whistles, such as a timer, or an automatic shutoff feature, and you'll need to turn it off manually when brewing is done.
All-in-all, not a bad two cup coffee maker for this price.
