Keurig Brewers | Single Cup Coffee Makers

Updated on February 16, 2010

Keurig single cup brewers have revolutionized the coffee industry.  No longer is it necessary to set a timer before you go to bed or waste cupfuls of coffee by brewing too much in your regular old coffee pot.  Not to mention drinking coffee that has been sitting on the burner for hours on end, talk about disgusting coffee!  With a Keurig single cup brewer, you brew your coffee when you want it, without the long wait, and there is almost no waste!  I know what you are thinking, and this is not instant coffee!  It is still being brewed by having hot water pass through the grounds, but it does it one cup at a time.  One K-Cup to be exact.

Never before has it been so easy to make a cup of joe!

Seriously, this is the easiest cup of coffee I have ever made.  And there is no mess!

All Keurig brewers use a patented brewing system that uses K-Cups to store the coffee grounds.  These are little plastic cups (they sort of resemble creamers) that fit into the brewer.  All you do is open the lid, insert the K-Cup, close the lid, and hit the brew button.  It really is that easy!  Oh wait, there is one other thing.  You have to fill the reservoir with water.  Can you handle that extra step?

Each Keurig Brewer has a water reservoir on the side that easily detaches to refill it with more water.  It also has a removable cover in case you don't feel like removing the whole reservoir.  The best part about the reservoir are those nice blue LEDs that shine through the water.  Hey Keurig, can you make those interchangeable?  I wouldn't mind orange water at Halloween or red water at Christmas, thanks!

From what I can gather, there is a small bit of water stored inside the brewer as well.  This is the water that gets heated up and passed through the K-Cup and into your mug.  If you'll notice, the water level of the reservoir does not go down until after your coffee is brewed. 

Once you have double checked to ensure you got water in there, the next step is to open the lever.  This reveals the compartment that holds the K-Cup for the brewing process.  Insert the K-Cup and simply close the lever.  When the lever closes, it punctures the K-Cup through the top and bottom.  This is how the brewer passes water through the coffee.

Now all you have to do is select your cup size and push the brew button (make sure your mug is underneath first).  When you are done, open the lever again and remove your K-Cup to dispose of it.

      I love this coffee maker. We have one at work and my daughter has one in her home. Every cup is a delight. It is easy and looks so nice, as well.
