Keurig Coffee Maker Review – Super Convenient, But the Taste?

While you’re never going to be blown away with the quality of the coffee from a Keurig, these are a great option for a single person who wants a single cup of joe on their way out the door. As long as you are okay with the quality being a little lacking, this will make do.

They’re readily available in most places you’d expect, including Amazon, Target, Walmart, etc.

While the quality isn’t going to blow you away, the Keurig coffee maker is still a great option for many of us. Let’s go over some of the pros and cons of this single-serve coffee maker.

Pros of the Keurig Cofee Maker

If you’ve used a Keurig, you know what the pros and cons of the single-serve coffee makers are. Let’s go over them anyway.


Really we could stop right here. The Keurig is king when it comes to convenience. You put the k-cup in there and press the button and boom about a minute later you have a cup of coffee. It doesn’t take up a lot of counter space. Clean is very simple as you just throw away (or recycle) your used k-cups.

Cleanup is also very easy. If you’re using a regular k-cup you just throw it away when you are done. If you are using the refillable k-cup you simply dump the coffee grinder out and give it a quick rinse and it’s ready to go. Outside of that you just need to wash the whole thing every week or so and replace the filters every two months or 60 refills.


You can get a Keurig coffee maker for under $100. Then you can purchase k-cups for ranging from 25 cents a cup to around a dollar. Maybe you can get even more expensive k-cups, but given the limited quality of a Keurig cup of coffee, why would you do that? Maybe someone can enlighten me in the comments.

Then, if you want to go even cheaper you can purchase your own coffee beans or coffee grinds that you can use to fill up a refillable k-cup. You can find the refillable k-cups on Amazon. When you use this method of using your Keurig, it makes it an incredibly affordable single-serve option.

Cons of the Keurig

The Coffee is Somewhat Weak

Come on now. It can’t be convenient, affordable and make the best coffee in the world. If that were the case then no one would use anything else. It’s about what you’d expect. It’s a little weak, but for a single person on the rush who isn’t too hung up on getting a great cup of coffee as they head out the door, it’s still a great option.

Brew Temperature Could be Higher

Again, you plug this sucker in and a minute or two later you’re ready to roll out with a cup of joe. Obviously, it is going to have its limitation. One of them is the coffee isn’t extremely hot and as the coffee maker gets older it gets a little lower. In this article we went over some tips to increase the brew temperature, but this is a common complaint of Keurig coffee maker users. Now there are Keurigs that do have brew temperature settings, but if you are one of those people who like your coffee to be McDonald’s hot, then this will probably not be a great fit for you.

What is the Typical Keurig User?

After we ran through the Keurig pros and cons you might be wondering, “Who the heck would use one of these things?” Well, that’s an easy question to answer. These work out great for someone who just needs a single cup, is looking for an affordable option and isn’t too concerned about the flavor in their cup of coffee.

Let me say that it’s not like the coffee that comes out of one of these is terrible, but if you are someone who has certain expectations for their morning cup, then this is not the answer. As an avid coffee drinker myself, I have no problem scooping some Tim Horton coffee into a refillable k-cup and getting on with my day. It’s just not something I want every day.

I keep one in my cabinet and get it out if I’m having company and not sure if anyone wants coffee. Maybe if I don’t feel like going all out on a French Press or just feeling lazy I’ll fire the old Keurig up.
