Keurig K-Cup Brewer

A Keurig K-Cup Home Brewer is a single serve coffee pod system that brews up individual cups of coffee. There are a variety of models on the market, but they all work in a similar fashion. The user turns on the machine, inserts a K-Cup, places a coffee mug under the spout and presses the brew button. The water heats up, the K-Cup is pierced and the coffee is dispensed in 20 to 60 seconds. 

Keurigs are synonymous with convenience and efficiency, and in a society where these two characteristics are favored, you can expect that single serve coffee brewers are becoming the preferred way to make coffee. Keurigs are compatible with K-Cups only, which are available in a range of flavors, roasts and blends. In addition to the various types of coffees, K-Cups are also available in ciders, hot chocolates and specialty brews like mocha. 

When the user places the K-Cup into the machine and closes the lid, the capsule is pierced and the pre-measured amount of hot water is forced through the capsule, grounds and paper filter that is contained within the K-Cup. The coffee is then released conveniently into the mug and is heated at a temperature of 192 degrees Fahrenheit.

The main difference between Keurig K-Cup machines is how often water is added. For example, mini personal machines require that you add water each time you make a cup of coffee, whereas the larger machines have an attached water tank you can fill as needed. In commercial settings, the machine can even be set up to a water line for a continuous supply of water. Naturally, those that are designed for personal use will require that you remove the K-Cup and wait for the water to heat up for the next cup of coffee. Regardless, all Keurigs are fast and efficient.  You can view different Keurig Models Here .

There have been some concerns over the impact that coffee pods have on the environment, but there are ways to skip the pods if you’d like. By following the initial steps and omitting the K-Cup, you can make your own flavored teas or hot chocolates. You can also purchase the patented My K-Cup that allows users to use their own coffee grounds without having to contribute to more landfill waste. 

Although the Keurig company was established in 1990, their market presence has really shined over the last few years. There are 2.5 million beverages dispensed from these machines daily, and the company is offering a new line called VUE that gives users more control over their temperature, strength and brew size using a touch screen.
