The Coffee a la Carte machine may very well be the right machine for the job. This next-generation coffee maker brings together the speed and convenience of a single-cup brewer with the ability to brew a 42-ounce pot in less than six minutes, according to Capresso. On top of that, Coffee a la Carte comes with a separate tea filter and features a setting to rapidly steep one of your Dad’s favorite teas, if he’s into that sort of thing.


  • Quick-heat pump can brew a single cup in less than 60 seconds
  • Makes 42 oz. of coffee in less than 6 minutes
  • Brewing system adjusts automatically to the amount of coffee in the filter to deliver mild to double strength coffee
  • Customizable brewing and size options
  • Programmable small cup, large cup and tea buttons
  • Wide brew head for maximum saturation and extraction
  • Quick brew, rapid steeping tea system
  • Removable 52 oz. water tank
  • Auto shut-off after 2 hours
