Over 50% of Americans over the age of 18, which includes myself, drink coffee everyday. So when I was given the opportunity to review the Keurig 2.0 K550 model, I could not have been more stoked!!
I had a first generation Keurig machine and loved it, so I was excited to learn about the new functionalities of the second generation.
Since there are so many new features I thought that I would share the capabilities of the new Keurig machine that appealed most to me.
#1 I am now able to brew a pot or “carafe” of coffee with the same machine. I always kept my old school coffee maker handy for this very reason, but not anymore! Brewing a carafe requires a K-Carafe pack, but luckily the machine came equipped with enough to last a while.
#2 You are now able to customize your Keurig 2.0. For one, the touchscreen allows you to easily adjust the settings to your liking. You can now customize the touchscreen/water reservoir light color.
#3 Another function now available is the timing/programmable system that allows you to set a timer. You want a cup of coffee ready for you in the morning? Well, all you have to do is set the timer!
#4 You can also choose different brewing sizes: 4, 6, 8, or 10 ounces per cup.
#5 The water reservoir allows the opportunity to store a significant amount of water, 80 ounces, which I was not used to with my original Keurig machine. In the past I would have to add water for every cup I needed to make.
I can honestly say that I can not find one bad thing to say about this wonderful machine!
