Mini Keurig
by: Kathryn

I have this and love it...it's perfect for me, as I put it in my bathroom! I want a fresh coffee but don't want to go all the way downstairs to the kitchen. Perfect amount, perfect temp, easy to maintain.

perfect for a quick morning cup of coffee
by: Anonymous

Pros
- very fast and convenient
- it heats up the water and mixes it with my coffee mix perfectly
- I can hit the “brew” button and walk away


- it doesn’t fit my many different sizes of mugs

The Keurig Mini Brewing System is perfect for a quick morning cup of coffee at home or on the go. All you have to do is put in your K-cup, add 8 ounces of water, and click one button; three minutes later, you are set. There are pros and cons to the mini brewing system. It is very fast and convenient; it heats up the water and mixes it with my coffee mix perfectly. Also, I really enjoy that I can hit the “brew” button and walk away to finish getting ready in the morning, especially when I’m in a rush.

A con would be that it doesn’t fit my many different sizes of mugs. I own lots of different sizes, and sometimes they are either too tall or too round for the machine. I know it is a Mini Brewing System and it only does 8 ounces at a time, but I could do 2 batches to have 16 ounces, but I cannot fit that mug in the machine. It’s also a little hard to clean. The bottom is really easy to remove, but that’s about it. I have to stick my hand inside of the machine to clean the water area to make sure there is no mildew/mold, and where the K-cup goes, only 2 of my fingers fit into it to clean. It’s super easy to use, and I look over the cons because the machine has never really given me any mechanical issues.

good machine BUT
by: Anonymous

i recently purchased this coffee machine but am on my way to return it to the store. The cofee machine is nice but the water does not get hot enough . Once you put in the milk it gets pretty cold . Also the largest cup makes the coffee very watery and lose the taste so am returning it

Perfect for a single person
by: Anonymous

I purchased the Keurig mini last month from Bed Bath And Beyond, and I love it! It's perfect for a single person, or someone who doesn't drink a lot of coffee throughout the day. It's a nice size appliance too. It's doesn't take up a lot of room on the counter. Now the negative... The only thing I have to complain about is the strength of the coffee and hot chocolate.

I purchased the hot chocolate pods for my boys, and they were horrible. It's like drinking brown water. They add our own hot coco to the cup after its done. For my coffee, I buy the medium blend to make it stronger.

I also like the Keurig over the Tassimo for the reason of having the K-Cup. I purchased that at the same time, and not only does it come in handy when you run out of pods, but also when your in the mood for your favorite outside coffee like "Dunkin Donuts" or "Starbucks". The k-cup is easy to use, my boys have even used it for they're hot chocolate.As for the cleaning, its easy. I run hot water through it with the K-cup in it, especially after the hot chocolate has been run through the machine.

The cleanup is so easy too. Alls you have to do is take the used pod out and throw away. There's no filter to deal with!If your a coffee drinker, Keurig is a great coffee maker. There's a big selection of coffees, teas, and hot chocolate that is available to use with your machine.

They have different models, to cater to your needs. I'm planning on buying the B60 assorted coffees, and of course the K-Cup for my parents this Christmas, as I'm that happy with mine.
