I love my new Keurig K250 as it is easy to use . gives you choice of strength and even mug or pot sizes. I was disappointed that you can not use any bargain Brand coffee pods that I had from Aldi and had received as a gift. But the freshness and flavor of my coffee is great! Customer service has been terrific. Thanks Keurig for a great product.
I would not recommend this model of Keurig all sorts of manufacturing problems taking back to store, however like the other models
I first fell in love with Keurig machines at an old job where a coworker had a machine. It was great because I had a night shift and could get the perfect fix of caffeine when all the shops were closed. When she left and took her Keurig with her I was devastated. The lack of coffee at my fingertips frightened me. Luckily I have since convinced my roommates to purchase the K200 brewing system and life couldn't be better. First off I have to say Keurig themselves are a pretty awesome group. I was using a coupon to purchase this brewer but the color I wanted to purchase was sold out. I emailed support to ask if there was any chance that color might be back in stock before the coupon ran out. Although the dates didn't quite work out their customer support responded quickly and was super friendly. They even gave me a coupon for a free box of pods because I was sad about the color being sold out. Speaking of colors, can I just say how awesome it they have such a variety of colors available! I love pops of color and have always been a little bored by the monotone colors available for basic kitchen appliances. It was super exciting to have the option to choose between so many fun and attractive color choices. But enough about it's appearance, how does this thing work? Super easily! I'm no master chef and often get stressed out thinking about making things in the kitchen. Coffee is one of those things that everyone has very specific requirements about how they want them to taste, and if you don't get it right they're doubly cranky because they lack caffeine. This machine is amazing because everyone can customize the size and strength of their cup of joe. I haven't used it yet but you can brew a carafe for a larger party, or if you really just need all the coffee ever. I love this thing because although I don't work as late as I once did, I'm still on an opposite schedule than my roommates. With a larger coffee pot I would either be faced with drinking old, cold coffee or trying to figure out the science and ratio of water to coffee to brew a smaller batch in those big jugs. It never ended well for me with mostly watery coffee. Now when I roll out of bed mid morning I get the perfect amount of fresh hot coffee with minimal effort. I should also mention I am incredibly lazy which makes this machine a god send, no measurements or leaving machine warmers on for hours or daily clean ups of a pot. The ease of popping a cup in and pressing 3 buttons makes my mornings that much happier. Also no fear of leaving the warmer on and potentially burning down your house is a plus. We once had to turn around in a snow storm to go turn off our old coffee maker. Cleanup with this machine is a breeze! About once a week I wipe down the sides of the machine since coffee sometimes splashes up, and give a good wash to the drip tray. The water tank is pretty small and easily monitored for any potential buildup that would need to be washed out. We use this machine so often I doubt anything has time to build up! The only slight negative I have, is I am a little weary to brew things like iced tea through this in fears of it somehow tasting like coffee. I know the easy fix is to run a cycle or 2 of hot water to get rid of any remaining odors, but as I mentioned before I am lazy and not desperate to have quick iced tea at my finger tips. In my mind Keurig can do no wrong! And although Keurig is compensating me with some k cups for writing this I would gladly tell anyone within earshot about the wonders of this machine! So small it can easily fit anywhere in your kitchen! Fun colors and the fastest coffee in all the land. You will not regret one second of your purchase and might kick yourself for not getting one sooner. Thanks, Keurig, for the free pods for this review.
I have been a Keurig coffee machine user for a number of years now. This is my third version, first one was simple only two cup size options but I was in love at first cup!! I still have it and am keeping it as a back-up. My second one had 5 water options and wow even better, from expresso to travel mugs! I have moved this model to my cabin and use it everyday I am on holiday!! Now this model k550 series OMG coffee lovers heaven! small size cup large travel mugs and now a pot! I am loving this carafe! I am sitting here with a pot of french vanilla coffee, my cream and cup. Wonderful. Now to be honest I did buy the insulated carafe to keep coffee hot longer ( the one provided didn't keep it hot) and I do wish there was more selection in the coffee varieties available ( only flavour is french vanilla at this time, but I am hoping in the near future that more flavours will become available) there are several coffee varieties available now.( island coconut hint hint ) I am also waiting for more of the menu to be unlocked so even more options will become available from lattes to cappuccino's!! what a wonderful machine!! 5 star rating all the way! Thanks, Keurig, for the free packs for this review. And thank you for making this machine!
Nicely designed machine, however must switch over to the new design pods with the readable label. Running plain water only dispenses 6 oz, sometimes only a couple drops and then you have to do it again. Only drawback is holding the button down for water. Bigger reservoir for water, easy to use keypad. Thanks Keurig, for the free packs for this review.
This machine is great for making strong coffee and the exact size you would like. However, it frequently clogs (customer service suggests using a paperclip to unclog) and the carafe cup will not brew enought to fill the carafe-useless.
