Keurig vs Flavia Coffee Makers

Updated on August 23, 2017

Which Single Cup coffee maker is the best?

Single Cup coffee makers have become quite popular, with Keurig leading the way in popularity. But is it the best single cup coffee maker? How does it compare to Flavia drink station?

As it turns out the clear winner isn't cut and dry. Each system has its benefits and drawbacks.

However, I feel that the Flavia Drink station edges out Keurig for best single cup coffee maker.

First, taste

The ultimate decision maker for every coffee drinker should be taste. I've had both Flavia and Keurig coffee. I find Keurig coffee to be bitter, and yet watered down.

Flavia drink station made coffee is more robust. It seems like "real coffee" to me, whereas the Keurig is almost imitation coffee.

In a nut shell!

Initial cost of machine goes to Keurig,

but cost per cup of coffee goes to Flavia!

Flavia "Fresh Packs" take up less space overall than K-cups

Similar to how a credit card is smaller than a golf ball.

Cost per cup - Keurig

The initial outset for both machines are comparable, both having starting price points in the sub-100 dollar range. Keurig gets a slight edge here, I was able to find a few machines in the 75 dollar range.

Brewing Something Good Unique 35-Count Variety Pack 0.78 cents per cup

Brooklyn Beans Variety Pack 0.55 cents per cup

Gloria Jean's Hazelnut 0.57 cents per cup

Of note: Keurig has a reusable coffee filter available to lower cost per cup of coffee.

Flavia can also brew tea, hot chocolate, mochaccino, cappuccino, and lattes

And the Flavia does it without having to buy a different machine, the more expensive Keurig Rivo System

Cost per cup - Flavia

FLAVIA ALTERRA Coffee, Morning Roast

0.49 cents per cup

FLAVIA ALTERRA Coffee, French Roast

0.58 cents per cup

FLAVIA ALTERRA Coffee, Colombia

0.53 cents per cup

Which do you prefer?

Keurig or Flavia?

The drawbacks of the Flavia system

The only major drawback of the Flavia system: It isn't very popular. Keurig has really dominated the single cup coffee market. You can go to your local supermarket and purchase K-cups.

Flavia Fresh Packs I have only seen online, and at my local Achieva Credit Union.

The Keurig system can also utilize a reusable coffee filter

Flavia has no such reusable filter that I could find.
