With the invention of the K-Cup coffee pods and brewers for them the company starting doing well. An example is that in two thousand fourteen the pods had 3.6 billion in sales.

Keurigs K-Cup system

With the K-cup brewing system it is designed to brew a single cup of coffee, tea or hot chocolate, or any other hot beverage.

The K-cups are filled with coffee grounds, tea leaves, cocoa, fruit or any other fillings, and then sealed for freshness.

As of two thousand sixteen Keurigs K-cups had around five hundred beverage varieties, including the top best selling coffee brands, so you will find a large choice with this product.

    Hi Wayne,
    I currently own the Keurig K575 model and couldn’t be happier with my choice. It is a bit noisier than an earlier model I used for years but the features make a little more noise very acceptable. I like a bold cup of coffee and I can choose a stronger brew with just a touch of a button. I also enjoy the flexibility of brewing a carafe when I entertain. I would highly recommend this model.

    Thanks for the thorough review of all the Keurig coffee makers. I just bought one and not sure which of the ones you reviewed I bought. I do know that I had 2 other brands before finally buying a Keurig maker. The other two brands were poorly designed, cheaply made and both broke within owning them for less than a year. I’m hoping that this Keurig will last a lot longer than a year. I feel like it will since it feels more substantial than the 2 coffee makers I previously owned. THanks for the reviews.

      Thanks for your comment, it’s interesting for me to know about your opinion on coffee makers, I’m sorry to hear about the two previous bad experiences you had with the two coffee makers machine you bought first, as you said some brands are poorly designed and not made to last.

      Hope also your new Keurig coffee maker last longer, let me know how it goes.
