Keurig coffee maker
A Keurig coffee maker is one of the most innovative brewers on the market today. Keurig, Incorporated leads the pack with their patented single-cup coffee brewing technology. In less than one minute, coffee lovers are enjoying a fresh, hot cup of coffee, tea, or hot chocolate in their favorite flavor and size. That is a lot less time than it takes to leave home, travel to the local specialty coffee shop, stand in line, order your coffee, pay for the coffee and then finally be on your way with your hot cup of coffee.
With each of the Keurig home brewing coffee makers, there’s no need for grinding beans, measuring the ground coffee, no mess and literally no clean up, since there aren’t any filters to change. Keurig has patented their K-Cup® portion packs which contain gourmet brands of coffee, tea, and hot chocolate and offer over 190 choices in all. The K-Cup® itself is an innovative marvel. It is a contained mini brewer that contains just the right amount of coffee, tea or hot chocolate. Pressurized hot water flows through the K-Cup®, producing a flavorful and hot cup of coffee, a single cup at a time. The K-Cup® has a filter built-in, so you just pop out the empty container and throw it away.
The coffee K-Cup® flavors include light, medium, extra bold, dark, flavored, decaffeinated, organic and fair trade. Enjoy coffee by Emeril, Green Mountain, and Newman’s Own Organics, among others. Black tea, green tea, herbal tea, and decaffeinated tea are the K-Cup® choices, created by gourmet names such as Gloria Jean’s and Bigelow, to name a few. Popular brands like Ghirardelli® and Green Mountain offer deliciously creamy choices of hot chocolate K-Cups®.
Keurig offers three gourmet coffee brewers exclusively for home use. The Special Edition B60 Brewer offers three brew size choices, so each coffee drinker can have as little or as much coffee as they need in the morning. The removable 48-ounce water reservoir and removable drip tray are both easily washed and returned to the brewer. You can program this single-cup brewer to brew a specific amount of coffee (ounces) and the time you want it to brew. Chrome accents compliment every décor nicely. This style fits most budgets at around $149.95.
The Keurig Elite B40 Brewer is the lowest priced style at $99.95. However, it isn’t programmable and offers two instead of three brew sizes. At the top end is the Keurig Platinum B70 Brewer with four brew size choices, a removable 60-ounce water reservoir, removable drip tray, and a programmable message center that allows you to set the brewing time and brew size. This model features Keurig’s Quiet Brew™ Technology, making it the quietest single-cup brewer Keurig has made to date.
In short, a Keurig coffee maker will allow you to brew a single cup of your favorite from almost 200 styles of coffee, and have it come out tasting perfect every time.
