The present invention provides a beverage maker having an in-line heating assembly for heating water to make hot beverages such as coffee and tea. The heating assembly defines a flow path that runs past a plurality of heaters for heating water to a desired temperature. In this manner, the beverage maker heats water as it travels, alleviating the need for a water tank or vessel, resulting in increased savings in weight and size, as well as reducing brew time. Additionally, an optical sensor assembly is provided to detect when a serving container of the be...


What is claimed is: 1. A beverage maker having an in-line heating assembly for heating a liquid to make hot beverages, the beverage maker comprising:a heating body that defines a flow path for heating the liquid, the flow path having a first end and a second end;at least one valve for regulating the flow of the liquid along the flow path;a plurality of heaters disposed between the first end of the flow path and the second end of the flow path, for heating the liquid to a desired temperature;at least one temperature sensor configured to produce a temperat...
