Features to consider while buying the best Keurig coffee maker
Before you settle on buying a car, dont you look at certain features? It is the same with purchasing a coffee brewer. Different coffee makers come with different features. Even with these Keurig products, they come with different distinctive features. Lets delve into some of the important features you need to look at before you call it a deal.
The machine lines
Although not very exact, the coffee machine lines will help you know or approximate the number of servings. The good thing about the lines is that a number of Keurig brewers lines match with the approximation of cups. We, therefore, recommend you go for a coffee maker with many lines if you are a family person.
This is one of the key features when buying a coffee machine. K, which defines the unique make of cups by Keurig, will guide you to know the number of such cups your brewer will accept or is compatible with. Keurig K575, the brewer we labeled upgrade pack stands out in this. The brewer has a cup size of4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 22, 26, 30 oz. It simply means, you can use the same brewer to prepare coffee for an individual, 3, 8 or even 15+ persons.
How fast would it brew?
You are using a coffee brewer because you want to save time. A coffee brewer that would take you 5 or so minutes to prepare a cup of coffee is almost useless. Thankfully, all Keurig products on our list take the shortest time possible to brew coffee. Most of them take 1 minute to prepare a hot cup of coffee. Isnt this what you want? Speed of brewing is, however, important to commercial joints that need to serve many cups of coffee simultaneously.
Strength and temperature selection
For many, the strength and durability of a coffee is its temperature selection as well as bodywork. We agree with these critics 100%. If a coffee brewer has a lower temperature selection, say from 30 degrees to 80 digress, you are going to wait forever for your cup of coffee to boil. Keurig K-Elite, the 75oz coffee brewer is a gem. The brewer comes with a temperature selection that ranges from 187 degrees to 192 degrees. This explains why the brewer heats in a matter of seconds.
Water tank capacity
Do you take 5 cups of coffee in one sitting? Does your family enjoy a cup of coffee together? If your answer is yes to the two questions, then you need to look for a coffee machine with a large water capacity. Interestingly, most Keurig brewers come with over 50-ounce tank capacity. Nonetheless, a few exceptions are exceedingly large. If that is what you want, we recommend Keurig K575 and Keurig K155 Office Pro. The two have 80oz and 90oz respectively.
We all agree that we live in a digital era, a time in history that the internet of things (IoT) has made it easy to communicate with many things at ago. Today, it is possible to brew coffee from the start to the finish without your physical presence. This is possible thanks to automatic functions. Some of the auto functions such as auto shut enable your brewer to shut down when not in use. Keurig brewers such as Keurig K575, Keurig K-Caf, and Keurig K-Classic come with auto shut, which enables these machines to shut down when not in use. This saves a lot of electricity. Some Keurigs will even give you a notification when its time to clean the appliance.
It would be bad to buy a coffee brewer that will take you several days to master how it works. The good thing about Keurigs brewers is they are simple and easy to use. With the advancement in technology, the company continues to produce coffee machines that are quite easy to operate. Obvious suspects such as Keurig K55, K575, K-Classic, and K-Caf among others come with full-screen LCD, indicators, and descaling reminders, features that make work easier.
Nobody loves noisy gadgets. We all love machines that do not disturb us when they are running. A silent coffee brewer such as Keurig K-Select or Keurig K-Cafe is all you need. With them, you are sure that even if they run the whole night, they will not wake your sleeping toddler or disturb your fellow colleagues in the office.
It is important to mind about the environment and how others feel about the coffee brewer you just bought. Take for instance coffee brewers that spill off when they are boiling the coffee inside them. They are not eco-friendly! Some come with long power cords that are cumbersome to rewind and store. Others will work well but they will also blow the lid off your power bills. The good thing is we have Keurig K-Classic and Keurig K-Mini.
Design is key especially if you are a person moved by how elegant the brewer looks. Without a doubt, a nicely-designed coffee brewer would add beauty to the interior dcor of your kitchen, fit in its place, and complement the splendor and tranquility of a home. Keurig K-Elite and Keurig K575 are our choice on the best designed Keurig brewers.
Which of the two products would you go for, the one with 1-year limited warranty or the other one with 5-year warranty? The answer is obvious. A 5-year warranty guarantees you value for money. The good thing about Keurig products mentioned herein is they are accompanied by generous warranties. With such warranties, you are assured of repairs and even replacement of your brew if the problem lies within the terms and conditions of the warranty.
Cleaning and maintenance of a Keurig single-serve coffee machine
