Product Review: Keurig single cup coffee brewer
We strive for excellence. It’s literally a part of who we are as a company. You see, “keurig” is actually derived from the Dutch word for excellence, and it’s also our promise to you. From start to finish, it’s our benchmark. Be it our patented single cup brewing technology, our gourmet brands of beverages or our customer service, it’s simply something you’ll come to expect.
Today, we’re the leading single cup brewing system in North America, and we couldn’t be happier to provide gourmet coffee drinkers with the perfect cup, day in and day out.
Why do we think the single cup brewing technology is so great?
We believe that coffee should always be served fresh, just like a gourmet coffee house, wherever you are. Period. So why brew coffee a pot at a time when we drink it a cup at a time? It was from this question that our revolutionary concept of a K-Cup® portion pack was born.
Introduced in 1998, Keurig’s innovative single cup brewing system lets people brew the perfect cup of gourmet coffee in less than a minute, without having to grind beans, measure coffee, handle filters or clean up. It’s as simple as it gets.
Choose. Brew. Enjoy.®
The Keurig is genius, both in design and in business. Charging $10-17 a box with 12-16 servings. Instead of a can which averages $.50 a serving.
The Keurig has many different flavors each person can have their own favorite cup without sharing.
Furthermore, it also has uses for people who do not like coffee (like myself) such as: tea, hot chocolate and hot apple cider. A normal coffee pot collects dust if you don’t like coffee, also if you don’t drink a lot of coffee the rest of the pot won’t go to waste, because you are brewing by the single serving.
Keurig also makes an adapter (reusable filter) so you can enjoy your own loose coffee in their machine. Making this machine cost effective and enjoyable.
The maintenance is low which also makes it enjoyable.
Now comes the biggest hint! Buy the expensive one! Don’t go cheap! You will regret it!
The platinum has a LCD viewing screen which make it easier to operate. The most important part is the reservoir vs no reservoir! If you do not have the reservoir you will regret it! It is a pain in the ass to fill the unit every cup! With the reservoir you don’t have to worry, just push the button and enjoy. If you buy the commercial version you can just plumb the line in and then you never have to worry about filling it up.
If you enjoy any of those drinks above and you don’t already have a Keurig,
Go buy one! I’ve had one for a year and it’s great!
*note* if you have hard water you should use filtered water like a Brita.
