What is the the best Keurig of them all? We picked the K475, a brewer with a 70-ounce reservoir; K-Cup, K-Mug, and K-Carafe capability; five temperature options and a Strong Brew setting.
It’s the best single cup coffee maker for those who like to have options and control over each cup. We also took a close look at other models and organized the Keurig coffee maker reviews into the best picks for small spaces, iced-coffee lovers, offices, and more.
A Spotlight On Some of The Best Keurig Coffee Maker 2019
Keurig K475 Single Serve K-Cup Pod Coffee Maker – Our Choice as the Best Overall Keurig Coffee Maker
This is the best Keurig you can buy in 2019. Why? It has a wide variety of cup, mug, and carafe sizes, so it’s great for people who don’t like refilling the reservoir. It also offers a lot of control, including Brew Strength and five temperature settings.
With a giant 70-ounce reservoir, you won’t need to refill for quite a few cups. The machine will brew 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, and 16-ounce cups, (you use the K-Mug pods for the 12 and 16-ounce sizes) and also 22, 26, and 30-ounce carafes.
Like with most Keurig models with these bigger size options, you need to buy the carafe separately. For taller travel mugs, you can remove the drip tray.
Each cup, mug, or carafe can be customized just the way you like. This Keurig has five temperature settings and strength control, which you select on the color touch screen.
In addition to the huge range of K-Cup pod flavors, this one cup coffee maker is also compatible with the reusable My K-Cup coffee filter, so you can make your favorite ground coffee.
If you feel like you’re constantly refilling the reservoir on your other coffee machine or anticipate that would happen with smaller Keurig models, that probably won’t be an issue with the K475.
You wouldn’t have to refill until nearly 6 cups in if you brew regular 12-ounce cups most of the time. The ability to brew carafes is also a big plus if you’re making coffee for a group, and don’t want to wait for every individual cup. Other features like the temperature control, brew strength, and auto-on add to this Keurig’s appeal.
If you’re torn between K575 and K475, go with this one if you don’t care about losing 10-ounces of reservoir space and some touchscreen features.
- Wide range of cup sizes, including carafes
- Big water reservoir
- Five temperature settings
- Strong Brew setting
- Compatible with the reusable filter
- A bit pricey
- Problems with the touch screen are common
- Heavy at 13 pounds
Keurig K55/K-Classic Coffee Maker – Our Choice as the Best Budget Keurig Coffee Maker
The Keurig K55 is an affordable, solid one cup coffee maker that’s great for families where everyone likes coffee. If you own or have seen the K40, this is the same model, but it’s been jazzed up with some accessories like two water filters and 4 K-Cup pods. The actual machine is the same.
The reservoir holds 48-ounces of water, so you can make around 5 cups of coffee (if everyone is having 10-ounces) before needing to refill. It also comes with a snap-on filter, so it’s easy to replace when it’s time. The machine makes three cup sizes – 6, 8, and 10-ounces – and each cup takes just around one minute, which is perfect for busy mornings when everyone is waiting to make their own beverage.
If you like a strong brew, make the 6-ounce. On the control panel, the buttons you press to select size aren’t labeled, so you do have to remember what the exact sizes are.
Other features include a drip tray, which will catch excess coffee if your cup overflows, and if you want some on the go, it is removable so you can fit a travel mug underneath. The auto-off feature turns the Keurig coffee maker off if it hasn’t been used for two hours, so it’s energy-efficient. There are two color options: black and rhubarb.
While this isn’t the most advanced Keurig – it doesn’t have controls over brew or temperature – it comes at a decent price and does the job. If you want a no-frills, budget Keurig model, this is the one to get.
- Easy to use
- No brew strength control
- No temperature control
- Maximum of 10-ounces is on the small size
Keurig K-Mini Plus – Our Choice as the Best Small Keurig Coffee Maker
If you’re short on counter space, this is the best Keurig coffee maker you can buy. It’s less than 5-inches wide, the perfect size for your cup, but it is still able to accommodate travel mugs that are 7-inches high when you remove the reservoir.
That reservoir holds up to 12-ounces, which is the maximum amount the machine will brew, making this a true one cup coffee maker. That’s an improvement over the first K-mini, which could only brew up to 10-ounces.
At minimum, the Keurig needs 6-ounces, and will brew any amount up to 12-ounces depending on how much water you add. You cannot select brew size. Every cup can be strong, too, thanks to the Strong Brew button. Push this before you push the normal brew button.
Brew time is about 1 minute following a 2-minute warm up. All K-Cup pods are compatible, as well as the reusable My-Cup filter that lets you use ground coffee. This is great news for people concerned about Keurig’s sustainability. To save energy, the coffee maker shuts off automatically after 90 seconds of non-use.
When you buy this one cup coffee maker, you get a 9-pod storage unit that fits in the Keurig. There are just two color options: black and red. If you have a tiny kitchen or are the only one in your family who drinks coffee, this is the best K Cup coffee maker to get.
- Light and compact
- Easy to use
- Can brew four sizes
- Has a Strong Brew setting
- Doesn’t appear to have temperature control
- Have to refill reservoir every time you want another cup, which means longer wait times as the water heats up
Keurig K-Cafe Single-Serve K-Cup Coffee Maker, Latte Maker and Cappuccino Maker – Our Choice as the Best Keurig Coffee Maker for Specialty Beverage
With its big reservoir, four brew size options, attached milk frother, and other convenient features, the K-Cafe is the best Keurig coffee maker for specialty beverages. Make a cup as small as 6-ounces or as big as 12, with 8 and 10-ounces in between.
The drip also removes so you can fit a travel mug up to 7.2-inches high. The water reservoir holds 60-ounces, so you can make up to five large cups before you need to refill it. That’s great for families who all drink coffee or for those who like to have coffee throughout the day.
What gives this Keurig its name and uniqueness is the ability to brew lattes and cappuccinos. These are both included on one of the brew buttons (the other is simply “coffee”).
The SHOT button brews two ounces of concentrated, espresso-like coffee for even more versatility, like if you wanted to add something stronger to your already-brewed cup, or if you like a single shot of espresso in the morning. Once the coffee is made, the dishwasher-safe milk frother lets you add regular dairy, almond, or soy milk. Like the brewer, it is labeled clearly with buttons for “Latte,” “Capp,” and “Cold.”
If you want it all in your Keurig, the K-Cafe is the best single serve coffee maker. It makes a wide variety of drinks in four cup sizes with very little effort, and it’s easy to clean, thanks to the dishwasher-safe frother. It even features SMART START, which simplifies the heating and brewing process.
You can make coffee from it all day (up to five 12-ounce cups) without needing to refill it. While it lacks some features (like an auto-on function and temperature control), it has practically everything else a coffee fan could want.
- Lets you make regular coffee, lattes, and cappuccinos
- Has a Strong Brew setting
- Dishwasher-safe milk frother
- Easy to use
- Heavy at almost 14 pounds
- Bulky with the milk frother
- No auto-on function
- No temperature control
Keurig K-Elite Single Serve K-Cup Pod Coffee Maker – Our Choice as the Best Keurig Coffee Maker for Iced Coffee
If you love an iced coffee on a hot summer day, consider this particular Keurig coffee maker: The Keurig K-Elite. It combines everything you love about a regular Keurig and adds an “Iced” setting. This allows you to make full-flavored, cold coffee as well as the usual hot K-Cup pods.
Normally, you make iced coffee at home by manually pouring hot coffee over ice cubes. This waters down the taste, however. With the K-Elite, that isn’t a problem, since the machine is designed well. Whether you’re brewing hot or cold, there are five size options: 4, 6, 8, 10, and 12-ounce.
The reservoir holds a massive 75-ounces, which is enough for six large cups. The drip tray is also removable, so you can fit in a travel mug. If you like stronger coffee, hit the Strong Brew button. Each cup takes just 1 minute to brew (after heating) and there’s a high-altitude setting, as well, since water takes longer to boil the higher above sea level you are.
Other features on this one cup coffee maker include the auto-on setting, which lets you time when you want your brewer to start, and the auto-off, which will turn off the machine after a certain time of disuse. If you get up early and make coffee, you’ll love the Quiet Brew technology. The K-Elite comes in brushed silver or brushed slate colors.
There’s a lot to love about Keurig models, and a lot to love about this specific one. The Iced setting is the most compelling and when you factor in additional features like the five-six options, fast brew time, and quiet operation, it’s a great pick. All those features come with a somewhat high price tag, however, so think about how much iced coffee you’ll be drinking before you buy.
- Excellent iced coffee setting
- Temperature control
- High-altitude setting
- Auto-on/auto-off settings
- Quiet Brew technology
- Five size options are labeled with images, not words, so you need to think for a second to remember what is what
Keurig K575 Single Serve K-Cup Pod Coffee Maker – Our Choice as the Best Keurig Coffee Maker for Versatility
Sometimes a few cups in the morning just don’t cut it, or you’re throwing a big brunch party and the coffee always needs to be fresh. For that, you need a one cup coffee maker that can handle a wide variety of sizes and have a large water reservoir. The Keurig K575 has that size versatility and control.
At 80-ounces, this Keurig model has one of the largest water reservoirs you can get. It brews 4, 6, 8, 10, and 12-ounce cups, as well as 22, 26, and 30-ounce carafes. You do have to buy the carafe separately. That means you can brew a maximum of 20 cups before needing to add more water. You also get the ability to control each cup’s brew strength and temperature using the color touch screen, as well as an auto-on, auto-off feature.
There’s a lot to love about the K575, but we do have to talk about its limitations. It’s part of the 2.0 series, which uses a new brewing system. That means only certain pods work; the machine is designed to prevent the use of third-party K-Cups.
This Keurig model is already a bit pricey, and the fact that you have to buy the pricier pods could be a deal breaker. In theory, you can get around this and “trick” the machine, but you void your warranty. On the other hand, this brewer does work with the My K-Cup filter, so you can make whatever ground coffee you want.
If you’re okay using only Keurig K-Cups and ground coffee, this is a really good single serve coffee maker. You have a lot of size options, a huge reservoir, and the ability to customize each brew’s strength and temperature.
- Wide range of size options
- Huge reservoir
- Compatible with My K-Cup
- Strong Brew setting
- Temperature settings
- Doesn’t work with third-party K-Cups
- Touch screen problems are common
- Heavy (almost 14 pounds)
Keurig K250 Single Serve, K-Cup Pod Coffee Maker – Our Choice as the Best Keurig Coffee Maker for Design and Functionality
This versatile brewer is the best K Cup coffee maker when it comes to looks. It has the most color options including sandy pearl, oasis, peacock blue, turquoise, and imperial red. It isn’t just a pretty face, however, it also brews ten sizes and is equipped with a Strong Brew setting.
The K250 brews K-Cup, K-Mug, and K-Carafe pods, for a total of ten sizes: 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 22, 26, and 30-ounces. The reservoir holds 40-ounces, so you can fill four 10-ounce cups before needing to refill.
There’s also a Strong Brew setting if you like your coffee to have a bit of a kick, as well as a Hot Cocoa/Other beverage selection option. The machine is controlled using the black-and-white touchscreen, which has a very simple design. You choose the size, which are labeled, using up or down arrows, and then hit Strong Brew or Hot/Cocoa if you so choose before brewing.
If the main reason you’re looking at the K250 is because it can brew carafes, you’ll be happy to know it’s one of the more affordable models with those size options. Also, if you really love one of the colors, especially one of the blues, this is the best Keurig. It holds a reasonable amount of water, isn’t too big, brews from pods and ground (with the My K-Cup), and it’s easy to use.
- Really pretty
- Brews 10 cup sizes, including carafes
- Compatible with My K-cup filter
- Strong Brew setting
- Simple controls
- Problems with the touch screen are common
- 40-ounce reservoir is on the smaller side for Keurig models of this type
Keurig K145 OfficePRO Brewing System – Our Choice as the Best Keurig Coffee Maker for Office use
Every office needs a coffee maker, and what’s great about Keurigs is that you can also use them to make tea, hot cocoa, and hot water on demand for oatmeal. What Keurig model is the best, however? It might just be the K145 OfficePro Brewing System. It combines fast and convenient brewing with a great drain setting that most Keurigs lack, so it’s easy to transport and keep clean.
This single serve coffee maker holds 48-ounces, which might be on the small size for offices where everyone is using the machine. It brews 6, 8, and 10-ounce cups, so after around 4 cups, someone would need to refill the reservoir. That reservoir is also removable, so you can fit a travel mug up to 7-inches high in its place. In terms of speed, the Keurig brews in around a minute after heating.
The best feature on this particular model is the drain feature, which empties the hot water tank of the brewer. If you need to transport it or it’s going to be stored for a while, it’s best if you drain the tank. It’s very easy to do: turn it on and then empty out of the cold water reservoir, returning it to its place on the machine.
The “add water” light will be blinking. Turn DRAIN on the BREW/DRAIN SELECTOR towards the back of the machine, and make sure the green drain light is flashing. Then, simply hold the drain button and watch the (probably hot) water flow into the reservoir. It only takes a minute or so! In the past, it was a complicated process to drain the hot water tank, so this feature is very useful.
Other great features on this Keurig include its heavy-duty construction and power cords, so you know it’s built for high-volume use, and the auto-off, which switches off the brewer following two hours of disuse. Though it’s ideal for the office, this brewer can easily be used at home, too, especially if you want a more sturdy single serve coffee maker. It isn’t compatible with the reusable filter, however, and it can be a bit loud.
- Solid construction
- Drain feature
- Affordable for office or home
- Easy to use
- Not compatible with the My K-Cup reusable filter
- Doesn’t have the Quiet Brew technology, so it might be loud
- No Strong Brew setting
Keurig K155 Office Pro – Our Choice as the Best High-End Keurig Coffee Maker
Another commercial Keurig model, the reason this isn’t the best office pick is mostly because of its price. However, if your office has money to spare and is willing to invest, there’s a lot to love about this brewer. It has a giant reservoir, the always-convenient drain system, Quiet Brew technology, and more.
With 90 ounces, this Keurig’s reservoir is one of the (if not the) largest size. It brews 4, 6, 8, and 10-ounce cups, so you can make nine cups of the largest size before needing to refill. The temperature of each brew is adjustable, though there’s no Strong Brew setting. The 4-ounce size will be the strongest. To program auto-on/auto-off, you use the full-color touchscreen, which also lets you select clock time and language.
If you need to move the Keurig or store it, you can empty the hot water tank with the uber-convenient Drain system. Only the commercial Keurig brewers have this feature. To use it, you just empty the regular water reservoir and return it to its place.
Watch for the lights indicating the brewer is ready to drain, and then hold the drain button to move the hot water into the empty reservoir. Carefully pour that out and the Keurig is ready to be moved or stored!
For bigger offices or offices where people have been grumbling about needing to fill the coffee maker’s water, this is the best single serve coffee maker to get. Its enormous reservoir ensures lots of cups will be poured before someone needs to refill, and it’s easy to use. It even has Quiet Brew technology built in.
As mentioned above, however, it is one of the most expensive Keurig models and it doesn’t let you use the reusable filter for ground coffee, so you’ll always be paying for the pricey K cups on top of that initial price. The price tag is the only reason why this Keurig isn’t our best office pick.
- Huge reservoir
- Drain system
- Quiet Brew technology
- Easy to use
- Very expensive
- Not compatible with the reusable filter
- Touch screen problems are common
- No Strong Brew setting
Keurig K-Cup In Room Brewing System
Compact and affordable, this brewer is one of the best single serve coffee maker machines if you’re a no-frills kind of person and don’t mind waiting a bit longer for your morning brew. Sometimes listed as the K130, this Keurig holds just enough water for one cup and is equipped with an energy savings mode, automatic on/off function, and a mug sensor. Other than that, it’s extremely simple.
You get just one cup of coffee from this machine and it’s only 8-ounces. This tiny reservoir means you have to refill it constantly if you drink a lot of coffee, and you have to wait every time for the water to heat up, because there’s no hot water tank.
If the water is cold, that can take 5-7 minutes. The other thing you should know is that there’s no water filter, either, so you should use filtered or bottled water to keep your machine running smoothly. This Keurig cannot use My K-Cup filters, so you just use pods. That means less mess, which is a positive for many people, but the fact that you don’t get the option is a downside.
Because this brewer is considered a commercial system, it isn’t recommended for home use. It’s intended for waiting rooms, motels, and so on. For that purpose, it’s a really good machine because it has solid construction, it’s very easy to use, and gets the job done. The big downside would be that people have to refill the water for themselves and wait, but with warm bottled water, it takes just five minutes or less, which is reasonable.
- Anyone can use it
- Automatic on/off function
- Mug sensor and no grounds means less mess
- Not compatible with the My K-Cup filter
- No hot water tank means longer brew times
- Small 8-ounce reservoir
- No water filter
Keurig Coffee Maker Buying Guide
The idea for Keurig came from John Sylvan and Peter Dragone, who were college roommates. In the 1990’s, Sylvan quit his tech job and decided to tackle the office coffee-maker.
After brewing a full pot, the coffee sits around and gets stale. What if you could have a machine that could brew single servings? The first single-serve brewer and K-Cup pods launched in 1998 and in 2004, K-Cup coffee makers designed for home use came out.
Keurig has since become one of the most popular coffee machine brands in the United States thanks to its simple design, sleek look, and convenience. How do you know which model is the best single serve coffee maker for you?
How big is the reservoir?
Water reservoirs on Keurigs are measured in ounces, like the cup sizes, so you can easily figure out how many cups your Keurig will brew before you need to refill the reservoir. The smallest Keurigs hold just enough water for a single serving or two, while the big ones can hold as much as 90-ounces.
That’s nine 10-ounce cups of coffee. If you know you want to have more than one serving of coffee and/or multiple people are using the machine, a Keurig with a larger reservoir is a good idea. However, if you are the only one who drinks coffee and you don’t mind filling the reservoir a few times a day, you can save money by buying a smaller Keurig model.
How many cup sizes will it brew?
Having a wide range of cup size options matters because if it only brews up to, say, 10-ounces, you’ll have to brew multiple cups to get the amount of coffee you want. That means more waiting. The more expensive Keurig models also have options for K-Mugs and K-Carafes, so you can make larger servings as well as coffee for a group or yourself, if you like to drink one cup after another, or you want to just make a big batch for everyone in your family before their day begins.
Does it make strong coffee?
One of the most consistent issues people report with Keurig is that it doesn’t make strong-enough coffee. While you will probably never get the kind of strength you would from a French Press, many Keurig models do have a Strong Brew setting. What this does is brew your coffee for longer, giving it a more concentrated flavor.
You can use the Strong Brew setting on any of the size options your machine has, but as a general rule, the smaller the cup, the stronger the brew. That means if you make a smaller cup (like 4 or 6 ounces) using Strong Brew, you’ll get something that’s a bit closer to real espresso. Be sure to look for this feature if strong coffee is a priority.
How easy is it to use?
As with any kitchen appliance, the best single serve coffee maker will be one that’s easy to use. Keurig models will have either touch screen controls or regular buttons. Look for clear labeling, so you know exactly what to push to select your cup size and to start the brewing process.
Some models will just have cup icons in different sizes and not the actual ounces, which isn’t a problem if you remember what they are, but can be annoying if there are a lot of them. Other features, like Strong Brew or a Hot Cocoa/Other button, are usually clearly-labeled. Keurig is known for its simple designs, so pretty much everyone should have no problem using any model.
Note: The touch screens are frequently criticized, and many of the newer models have gone back to the regular buttons. Models with touch screens are often more expensive anyway, and they don’t seem to be worth it. If you plan on using your machine a lot and for a long time, skip the touch screen.
How versatile is it?
All Keurigs make more than just coffee. With pods, you can make hot cocoa and tea, and all Keurig models also offer hot water on demand. You just leave out a pod. However, some machines don’t allow third-party K-Cups, so it’s important to know if the Keurig you’re considering lets you use them. You should also look and see if it allows the reusable My K-Cup filter.
These both add to the flexibility and convenience of the machine, and with the reusable filter, you’re using less plastic. You also save money because ground coffee is significantly cheaper than K-Cups, while third-party pods are also more affordable in the long run.
If you want to be able to make lattes and/or cappuccinos, there are only two Keurigs that come with milk frothers. These are on the upper-end price-wise, so consider whether or not you’re okay getting a separate milk frother that isn’t from Keurig and making coffee with a more affordable brewer.
A fan of iced coffee? There are models with special Iced settings that brew the coffee at a lower temperature, which adds to the versatility, but also to the price. Generally speaking, the more versatile the brewer, the more it will cost.
What other features does it have and how essential are they?
After considering the size, versatility, and basic functions of a Keurig model, take a look at the other features. These can include auto-on/auto-off functions, reminders about descaling, whether or not it has Quiet Brew Technology, color options, and so on. Are there any that you would consider must-have?
Auto-on/auto-off is a pretty basic feature that most Keurig models have, though if you’re looking at the cheapest models, it might be missing. Quiet Brew technology often comes with a bump in price, so consider how necessary it is.
How much does it cost?
Time for the million-dollar question: how much do you want to spend? Keurig has a wide range of prices and lots of affordable, solid options for the home brewer. Many of the compact models sell for $100 or less, and online retailers like Amazon frequently have really good sales on the pricier ($140-$150) ones.
Generally speaking, the Keurigs go up in price with features like a larger reservoir, larger cup size options, and more customizations like temperature control. Models like ones with the milk frother will also be more expensive.
Like all kitchen appliances, Keurig coffee makers should be used safely. This means following basic safety guidelines such as always reading the instructions before using and making sure all cords are undamaged. Using a frayed or cord that’s damaged in some other way can result in electrocution.
You should also never submerge the cords or appliance in water. The removable parts, such as the water reservoir, should be dried thoroughly before you return them to the machine.
Only use water in the reservoir. The only other approved liquid is Keurig’s descaling solution, which we will talk about more in the next section. You should also be sure to not overfill the reservoir; there is a max line. Speaking of liquid, the water in the machine during the brewing process is extremely hot. Do not try to open or stop the Keurig while it brews.
Is the cord too short? Keurig uses a short cord to reduce the risk of tangles. If you need to use an extension cord, be sure that the electrical rating is the same or more than the Keurig machine’s.
It’s dangerous to use a cord that isn’t powerful enough. Once you have a cord that can handle the machine’s wattage, be sure it includes a 3-prong grounding plug, and doesn’t drape over the counter, where it can be tripped on accidentally.
Maintenance and troubleshooting
Taking good care of your Keurig coffee maker ensures it keeps making great coffee, tea, and other beverages for as long as possible. However, even the best single cup coffee maker will experience a little trouble every now and then.
What should you do to fix common problems? This section explains how to maintain your Keurig and how to troubleshoot issues that might come up:
The only regular maintenance a Keurig one cup coffee maker needs is descaling every 3-5 months. What is scale? It’s the buildup of non-toxic calcium deposits, which over time can weaken your machine’s performance. Keurig recommends you use their descaling solution, though in a pinch, white vinegar works, too.
The first step is to unplug the machine. Fill the water reservoir about halfway with the descaling solution and place in your machine. Without inserting a K-cup, begin the brew cycle.
Keep a mug in place so the liquid doesn’t get everywhere. The machine will now run the descaling solution through its parts, cleaning them out. Once that’s done, run clear, clean water through the brewer to get rid of the descaling solution taste. That’s all you have to do!
Most issues with a Keurig can be traced back to a lack of regular cleaning. Simply turning the machine off and on again, or unplugging it and then plugging it back in often fixes any problems. Here are the most common difficulties and what to do:
Machine won’t brew
There are a few reasons why your Keurig isn’t brewing coffee as usual. The first idea is to just run the machine a few times with the K-Cup to just get hot water. If that doesn’t work, you know it’s not a problem with the K-Cup part. It’s most likely too much scale buildup.
Has it been a while since you cleaned it? Go through the cleaning process described above to remove scale and then rinse well before attempting to brew coffee. While you’re at it, make sure all the parts are fitted correctly. If the brewer still isn’t working, contact customer service.
Machine isn’t turning on
If your Keurig isn’t turning on at all, try the old “unplug and plug it back in” trick. Wait a few seconds after unplugging before plugging it back in. If it still isn’t working, check the outlet. If you know the outlet is working, the problem is with the brewer, and you should call customer service.
Machine isn’t brewing enough coffee
You’re brewing your usual 10-ounces of coffee in the morning, but notice the machine is producing much less. It could be because the water line is clogged with grounds or other debris. To clear it out, remove the K-Cup and brew a few cups of just water.
You should also check the Keurig brewing needle, which pierces the K-Cups, because it can get stuff stuck on it. The needle is very sharp, so be careful. In theory, the needles can be cleaned with straightened-out paper clips and what not, but you should know that Keurig does not recommend this. If you break something, they probably won’t honor your warranty.
If you’re getting an error message like “Add More Water,” you should check your reservoir. Fill it to the maximum level. If you’re still getting the message, remove the reservoir, wash it, dry it, and fill it again. Make sure it’s fitted properly into the brewer, and if the message is still there, try unplugging the machine and plugging it back again. If that doesn’t work, talk to customer service.
Machine is leaking
If you see coffee leaks around your machine, it’s most likely because of the upper gasket, which is around the brewing needle. Check and make sure the gasket is properly installed and sealed tight. If it’s misaligned, leakage occurs. Try moving it down just a bit (about a quarter of an inch), so there’s no space between the brewing needle and coffee pod.
Coffee tastes weird
You’ve been using your brewer for a while and not having major problems, when suddenly your drinks start tasting odd. If you’re using the same brands as before and the brands haven’t changed any of their ingredients, it’s the coffee maker.
It’s most likely because it’s time to descale. Keurig recommends descaling every 3-6 months, but if you’re using your coffee maker a lot, it might need more frequent cleaning. Scale will also build up faster if your machine isn’t using a filter and you’re using unfiltered water.
To learn more about the Keurig models included in this guide, check out Amazon and other websites where customers describe their experiences.
To choose the best K Cup coffee maker for you, decide what features are a must-have and what you’re okay with giving up. This way, you can narrow down the field and find a Keurig that will serve you great coffee every time.
