A cup of coffee whenever you want it in less than a minute is an ideal gift for coffee lovers at home or at the office. The Keurig Coffee Maker can have coffee ready first thing in the morning or can be used for a quick pick-me-up at any time.
This gadget can brew whatever coffee you like in three different cup sizes. You can choose the smaller 6 ounce selection, the regular 8 ounce size or the larger 10 ounce cup.
The smaller the ounces, the stronger the coffee will taste. Some people adjust from the stronger brew first thing in the morning to less strong as the day goes on. The machine has easy to select buttons on the size for the coffee ounces that you want in your cup.
The buttons range from small to large just like the ounce size. You can make a cup once just for yourself, or you can fill up the 48 ounce reservoir to have coffee throughout the day or to share with others.
This feature can hold as much as 6 cups of water before it needs to be filled again and it is clearly marked with a max fill line. Because this piece of the coffee maker comes off and is made of sturdy plastic, there’s no more struggling to fill a glass coffee pot with water.
The Keurig has a drip tray that can be removed from the front bottom of the machine. This aids in easy cleaning, plus it catches spills in order to protect the kitchen counters.
When this piece is removed, it allows for taller travel mugs to be able to be able to fit the machine.
Using the machine is easy. You put in whatever kind of coffee you want, pick the ounces you desire and the machine does the rest. The maker can use the prepacked Keurig cups in a wide variety of flavors, including decaf.
You can have your favorite brands in not only coffee, but in hot cocoa and tea as well. It’s recommended that you stick with Keurig products, but some people do use off brands.
If you don’t want to use pod coffee, you can get one of the reusable coffee filters that’s designed for use with the Keurig and use your own ground coffee beans. The maker does have a safety switch, for extra peace of mind.
After two hours, the machine will switch itself off. To keep the Keurig in top working order, you will need to make sure you follow a descaling schedule. The machine has this button right on the control side. You push the button and the machine will work to clean out any buildup so that you always get great tasting coffee with each use.

Why we love Keurig Coffee Maker K-Classic K55
This machine belongs to Keurig’s original line of machines that brought the company such success and includes many of the features that made Keurig brewers so popular.
The Keurig K-Classic (K55) Coffee Maker allows you to brew a cup of your favorite beverage in the shortest amount of time and without the hassle of brewing with a traditional system. You pop in the pod, choose your cup size and hit brew – and the machine does the rest.
This machine allows you to select the size of your cup – there are three options to choose from, 6oz, 8oz or 10oz, the most popular sizes of drink. The K55 is compatible with all original K-Cup pods as well as K2.0 pods; however, it doesn’t accept K-Mug pods or K-Carafe pods.
The simple and uncluttered push-button controls are simple to understand – even the most tech-averse will be able to operate this machine with ease. The display also includes indicators to tell you when to fill the reservoir or when to descale the machine.
The reservoir itself holds 48oz of water, plenty to make up to six or more drinks before needing to be refilled. There is also an auto-off function that turns the machine off after idling for two hours, helping you to save energy and reduce your electricity bill.
The Keurig K-Classic (K55) Coffee Maker lacks a few of the features that were introduced in more recent models. Notably, there is no temperature adjust function and there is no programmable option. However, since the machine brews coffee so quickly, this is hardly a major issue.
This model is supplied with a water filter handle and two filters, meaning you can always brew with the purest water – guaranteeing you always drink coffee of the highest quality.
This classic machine is ideal for someone who appreciates all the original features that made Keurig so successful but who won’t necessarily miss the extra functionality that was added to later models.
