Love my Keurig. Never have had an issue with it. Water is always hot. K-cups of all kinds fit, and never have coffee ground in my coffee. Keeps enough water in the holder to make a few cups. It was expensive when I bought it but it has been worth the price.

I have had this coffee maker for years! It has been the best ever! It is so convenient to be able to make one cup whenever you feel like it. Especially when there are endless flavor options. If one day I feel like having Donut Shop then I can have that, and the next day I can have cinnamon roll flavor coffee. I love the variety of it. The only reason I don't give this five stars is because the cup sizing. I prefer a larger cup size and the largest cup size option fills about half my cup which is disappointing. But other than that, I love it. I am thinking about upgrading soon to a newer model too.

Ive owned quite a few different keurigs in my life and this one is simple. Turn it on, let the water heat up, add your kcup, push what size cup you want and there you go

I love the convenience of my Keurig. What I don't love is how wasteful it is. If you really want a Keurig, I would suggest taking the time to do your research. Definitely recycle your K-Cups! I take mine apart, dump the grounds in my flower bed and then recycle the cups into crafts or with my plastic. You can buy a reusable cup, but I've not had a good experience doing that , coffee always comes out tasting weird. Side note: I recommend the Marley Coffee brand K-Cups( good coffee and the cups are easy to recycle!)

This is wonderful if you only want one cup of coffee and don't want to brew an entire pot! There are 2 downsides to this coffee maker, but both of them are correctable in different ways. First, the Keurig pods are expensive. You pay for the convenience. You can get much better priced pods from Trader Joes (and better tasting, IMO). The other downside is that the pods aren't recyclable, so you're contributing to the landfill. This is really easy to rectify by purchasing a reusable pod. We have 3 of them and it's really great and you aren't limited to the coffees that come in pod form!

I absolutely loved mine! It stopped working because of the de-scaling thing. That’s what I hate about it.Keurig Elite Single Cup Home Brewing System - K40

Great product. My fiance loves the Keurig we got for Christmas last year. I don't drink coffee anymore but also haven't explored my non coffee options for the keurig. We do try to be environmentally conscious so that is one thing we don't enjoy about the product. We create a lot of waste with the k-cups. We tried using a resuable k-cup with our own beans but it did not work well. The coffee was a little grainy and not as strong as he would have liked. Overall, no complaints about how the machine works.

I got this to replace a used Keurig K40 that I had been given, our large family used constantly, and finally quit after several years. This one is the same, except for having 3 cup sizes, rather than the 2 on my old machine. Makes great coffee, and doesn't have all the "smart technology" of some of the other Keurig models, which to me only serve as additional points of failure, or prevent you from using "unauthorized" K-cups. Nope, this one is simple, takes any K-cup, and brews a great cup of coffee. Price was better than the local Costco and Great-Wal-of-China-Mart too.

I love my Keurig. Especially since I can make things in it besides coffee. I frequently buy the iced tea, lemonade, hot tea and apple cider as well. As for coffee since I'm the only one in the house that drinks it the Keurig makes it much more efficient cost wise as well I love how fast and easy it is to use. My only complaint with this system is that you cannot empty the water from the reservoir. This was a bit of a challenge when I recently moved 850 miles. Fortunately it did not leak.

I absolutely love my Keurig. It heats up quickly and brews a great cup of coffee. I also use it to brew tea, cider, and hot cocoa. I especially love the timer feature. I have it set to turn on when hubby gets up for work so he's ready to brew and it stays on until after I get up later to get the kids ready for school. It has a water filter, which makes the coffee taste fresh, never bitter. We love ours so much that we bought the mini to take when we travel and stay in our RV or a hotel.

Does anyone not recommend purchasing this? I'm concerned in the amount of bacteria it may gather in the reservoir.

Is there a way to make the coffee hotter, or a way to get a stronger brew? Even dark roasts tend to be on weaker side.
