K-Cup Coffee Maker Brands

The coffee makers that offer quality, convenience and a perfect cup of coffee every time.

1. Keurig K130/B130 Brewing System

  • ASIN: B004978NKY
  • Item model number: K130, previously known as B130

The Keurig K130 Brewing System (previously known as B130) is a basic brewing system without a lot of bells and whistles but it is definitely not lacking in quality or the functionality to provide a perfect cup of coffee every time.

Notable Options:

  • Consumers love the simplicity of this single serve model with:
    • a single-use water reservoir
    • a mug sensor and
    • an energy-saving auto off feature after each cup is brewed.
  • This unit holds one 8 oz. mug and is unbelievably simple to operate. You just fill the water reservoir, add a K-Cup and within 3 minutes you have a delicious cup of coffee. Your favorite beverage (coffee, tea, hot cocoa, and even iced beverages) will be at your fingertips without any programming, waiting or mess.
  • Solo fill reusable K-Cups can be used for those who prefer not to use the one-time use K-Cups.

The only drawback with this brewing system appears to be its limited capacity of one 8 ounce cup.

It is a great choice (usually priced very economically) for someone who isn’t looking for a lot of complexity in their machine but simply enjoys a hot, cup of coffee full of flavour.

Notable Options:

  • This model has a removable water reservoir that holds 48 ounces of water.

3.  Keurig K-Cup K60/K65 Brewer

  • ASIN: B00AQ9NI36
  • Item model number: K65

The Keurig K-Cup (K60 / K65) Special Edition & Signature Brewers are comparable to the Platinum K75 model but are scaled down a bit in capacity.

Notable Options:

  • It has 3 different serving size options (6, 8 and 10 ounce).
  • A water filter kit is included as well as a 12 count variety pack of K-Cups.

4. Keurig K75 Single-Cup Home-Brewing System with Water Filter Kit

  • Item model number: K75

Keurig K75 K-Cup Coffee Maker

If you’re looking for a top of the line home brewing system, the Keurig K75 Platinum (Single Cup) Home-Brewer System and Water Filter Kit is the one for you.

This impressive machine offers:

  • a one-touch control panel
  • removable 72 ounce blue-lit water reservoir (which holds up to 10 cups)
  • a removable drip tray which can easily allow use of a larger travel mug
  • descale indicator and
  • an LCD display with digital clock.

Set up is simple and programmable options let you adjust the brewing temperature and select from 5 different brewing sizes (4, 6, 8, 10 and 12 ounce serving sizes).

The filter device takes up quite a bit of room in the reservoir and filters can be costly so heavy coffee drinkers who will want to get as many cups as possible from their coffee maker may want to forgo using the water filter kit and use pitcher-filtered water instead.

This machine is also fairly sizable and requires about a foot of counter space.

This luxury coffee maker is usually more pricey than the previous machines reviewed but still comes in within budgety. Its added features make it well worth the investment for serious coffee lovers.

5. BUNN MCU Single Cup Multi-Use Home Coffee Brewer
