  1. It depends on the coffeemaker. Pick the unit up and look at the bottom or the box it came in. You might even go on-line to Amazon or Single Serve Coffee Makers & K-Cup Pods and actually see the watts rating.
    Watts divided by voltage equals amps.
    Now you learned some electrical terms.

  2. Depends on your coffee maker; typical home units with a plug are going to be 120v in US and shouldn’t draw more than 5 amps. The info specific to your unit will either be on the box and documentation that came with the unit or on the units name plate. If you’re talking about a commercial unit all bets are off, those come in just about every combination of voltage and phase, all of which have different current requirements; have to go to manufacturer’s specs in this case.
    Also, if the unit lists it’s power consumption in watts it’s just a matter of dividing the provided wattage by the voltage (120V here in USA) to find the rates current.
