Advantages of using Keurig coffee makers

It’s okay if you’re still not sure whether or not Keurig coffee makers are for you. Here are a number of benefits to purchasing a Keurig coffee maker:

Variety: Most other coffee makers might be typical and boring. Keurig coffee makers offer you a variety of sizes and colors. This helps you chose just the right kind of coffee maker for your coffee needs. Whether you’re buying for a single person or an office or a household, there’s a    Keurig coffee maker for you.

Brew time: I once used a coffee maker that took a little too long to brew. I lived with it and enjoyed my coffee but on some days, I wished it could have been faster. Most Keurig coffee makers have a rather short brew time compared to other brands. This is great because now you can have your coffee without the wait. After all, this isn’t a Starbucks line.

K-Pods and cups: Keurig coffee makers come with a number of K-Pods that help fulfill all your taste cravings. No more needing a coffee run when you can get all you need right at home.

Ease of use and clean: Almost every Keurig coffee maker comes with a removable drip tray. This deals with accidental spills, a situation we know all too well. They also come with touchscreens and simple buttons that are easy to work. The last thing you want when trying to get a coffee fix is learning how to work a machine.

Disadvantages of Keurig coffee makers

Like every brand, service, and product in the world, Keurig has some things that aren’t quite pleasant about it. Here are a few:

Plastic or metal taste: As is with most coffee makers, Keurig coffee makers are made with plastic and stainless steel. There have been complaints about the smell of plastic or metal lingering and the taste being in the coffee. This isn’t the safest thing health-wise and can be downright uncomfortable.

Touchscreen fails: We’ve all at some point experienced the failure of an electric appliance.    Keurig coffee makers are no exceptions. The touchscreen has a tendency to stop working and that could make the appliance hard or impossible to use.

Energy use: We’re all trying to consume less energy and go green. I can’t assure you that this appliance would help with that. It might use up a lot of energy and even trip off your power.

Factors to consider when buying a Keurig coffee maker

Size: Keurig coffee makers come in a variety of sizes. You should find a size that fits the space you have available. Buying a K155 for a small kitchen counter is not an ideal purchase.

Cup capacity: The amount of coffee you need to consume is also a great determinant of what coffee maker you get. The K-Mini gives you one cup while the K575 gives you 10+ cups. It would be a waste if you ended up with more coffee than you can consume.

Brew time: Depending on how much time you want to devote to your coffee habit every day, you should consider the brew time. You don’t want to lose your appetite while waiting for a 5-minute brew to happen.

Compatibility with K-mugs and K-carafes: Not all Keurig coffee makers are compatible with K-mugs and carafes. Some only work with a K-cup.

Weight: Keurig has some slim and compact coffee makers but they weigh differently. Find out how much you’re willing to lug around before making a purchase.
