After reading the great reviews on the Keurig Coffee Machine I decided to invest in one. The reviews were really good so I thought the standard of the machine must be exceptional value This Coffee Machine passed the test with flying colors The Keurig Machine is raved about in all the reviews that I read and this intrigued me to look into the machine further.
The reviews all ended up with the same conclusion and that was this the Coffee Maker was definitely worth the investment. Now my review can be added to the list as well.
Pros of the Keurig Coffee Machine:
This machine can also be used to make tea and there are K-cups available to purchase in both tea and coffee. It heats water in less than twenty seconds. No need waste power using the kettle if you want to make a cup of tea with a tea bag its quicker and easier.
The Keurig Coffee Machine is very adaptable and you can use the ground beans of your choice to make your own favourite blend of coffee.
No need to take Barista lessons it is very easy to use.
No need for paper filters. This machine makes a cup of coffee that doesn't have coffee grinds in the bottom of the cup.
Excellent customer service. Keurig's customer service is second to none. They have an available help desk 24 hrs a day and 7 days a week.
Stylish looking. This Coffee Maker is a product that will take a place of pride in your kitchen. The blue LED lights look modern and great both day and night.
Cons of the Keurig Coffee Machine
The K Cups are not available at a lot of stores and the ones that do stock them charge quite a lot for them. 18 cups for $10 which is crazy. But now Amazon has come to the rescue. Their price for the cups are $20 for 50 cups This is the way to go if you want these cups. I would also opt for the variety pack so as you can choose the coffee that you enjoy the most.
You will be able to impress your friends with the different variety's of coffee available. Over 1300 reviews can't be wrong. People only leave reviews if they love or hate a product and with a rating of 4 stars it speaks for itself. The cost of a cup of coffee from this Coffee Machine works out at about 40 cents, so if you are used to spending money each morning at the coffee shop on the way to work, the machine will pay for itself in no time.
Do your research to make your choice but remember thousands of Keurig Coffee Maker Customers can't be wrong.

The days of making a full pot of coffee are going by the wayside. Single serve coffee makers are the latest trend in coffee makers. The most popular of these are the Keurig, the Tassimo, and the Senseo coffee makers. The Keurig machines were recently voted "The Best Single-Serve Coffee-Makers" by RealSimple magazine. This article's intent is to give you a brief overview of the features of the Keurig coffee makers as well as my personal experience with this brand.
Ease of Operation: The Keurig coffee maker is very easy to use. It warms up in less than two minutes once the power is turned on. It has a large removable water reservoir that, depending on which model you choose, can hold as much as 48 ounces of water. The reservoir is easy to fill when needed and slides easily into its proper location on the machine. When you are ready to brew your coffee, place your coffee cup under the dispenser. You then select the K-cup of your choice. Easily lift the lever in the center of the machine and place the K-cup in the holder. Shut the lever and select the size cup that you would like. The coffee is dispensed and ready to drink in less than one minute.
Device Options: Depending on the model that you choose, you can select anywhere from 6 to 10 ounces per cup. Many of the machines also have programmable options such as automatic on/off feature, an adjustable brew temperature, and a 24-hour digital clock.
Selection and Availability of Coffees: The coffee pods that the Keurig coffee maker uses are called K-cups. There are over 200 different kinds of coffees, cappuccinos, teas, and hot chocolate K-cups to choose from. The largest selection of K-cups will be found through online stores, but stores such as Bed, Bath & Beyond, Kroger, and some department stores have a large selection as well.
Keurig also offers a reusable K-cup coffee filter. If you purchase one of these, you are able to use any type of ground coffee that you choose to brew your coffee. This reusable filter is easily cleaned after each use by simply rinsing with water.
Reliability: I have had my Keurig for over eight years and have had no problems. I know many others who have had their Keurigs for several years without any problems as well. If you do encounter a problem, Keurig offers a one year warranty on their products.
Maintenance: Cleaning the Keurig coffee machine is simple. Simply mix one part white vinegar and two parts water and add this to the water reservoir. Run this solution through the coffee maker on a regular basis, typically once a month. This will remove any residual oils and calcium deposits from the water lines and will keep the machine running at its best.
Variety of Models: Keurig offers a variety of models including mini versions, home versions, office versions, and commercial versions. Cuisinart, Mr. Coffee, and Breville also make coffee makers that use the K-cup technology as well.
Keurig coffee machines offer individuals the ability to select exactly the type of coffee they want, in the amount that they want, and the strength that they want every time. With single serve coffee machines like the Keurig, you no longer have to drink the same thing that everyone else is drinking. You get a fresh cup of coffee exactly how you want it any time of the day.
