Single-serve coffee maker?

Searched function hasn't helped me on this, so apologies if it's been covered previously. I am considering the purchase of one of the single-serve Tassimo-type coffee makers. The usual coffee consumption is a cup or two in the a.m. these days. I have happily used, over the years, a Chemex and a French press, switched reluctantly to a standard electric coffee maker when Mr. Meatloaf and I married 20-ish years ago and learned to live with it by paying attention to what I was putting in it and drinking the coffee when it was very freshly brewed. I lost my dear Meatloaf earlier this year and am casting about for other options. Bought ... oh, heck, brain freeze. One of those plunger single-serve things that sit atop the cup. Coffee from it is good but requires more early a.m. thought and efffort than I'm currently preferring; also find that it's usually not hot enough, thus requiring yet another step.

All this to say that I've looked at other options and am now considering the single serve makers. Looks like there's an increasing number of options out there. May I please have some opinions on them?
