"Coffee: A liquid hug for your brain."
My coffee maker broke just before I left on vacation so I decided to wait until my return to replace it. I didn't need one more thing to do while trying to get ready for a two week international adventure.
When I returned home last Monday I was determined to get one right away. Unfortunately, I got a cold on my trip and haven't been feeling up to going shopping for a new brewer. As destiny would have it, I read Hannah Williams Thankful post this morning about her current compact coffee system that she seems to love. It sounded like just what I was looking for and I finally mustered up the energy (3 days after my return home) to get out to WalMart to pick one up. Happily, I was able to find the exact unit I wanted... in red.
This post will serve as my first "Thankful" post in Debbie Reynolds November contest. I am thankful to have a coffee maker again AND, I am very thankful to Hannah Williams and for her post guiding me in the right direction. I now have what I think is the perfect coffee maker for me.
Here is my complete review:
Product Review: The Keurig K-Compact Coffee Maker
In a nutshell, the Keurig K-Compact coffee maker makes it simple to make a quick cup of coffee in less than one minute.
This is a great option because this brewing system uses the k-cup pods so you can make just about any flavor of coffee or tea, hot chocolate, and even lemonade at the lift & drop of a handle and push of a button.
The big benefit: there's simply nothing like waking up in the morning and knowing you can make coffee without opening both eyes. What makes this coffee maker truly stand out is its absolute convenience and the reputation of the original and leading k-cup brewing company, Keurig.
Something cool this coffee maker does that you might not realize is the compact convenience of the smaller version of the original Keurig. It is compact but still has a 36 oz. water reservoir so you don't have to pour the water in before brewing each cup of coffee, like many of the other individual cup compact pod brewers.
By the way, this brewer is not for coffee snobs. Although you can buy and make just about any flavor of coffee from pods to use in this compact brewer, it is NOT a latte or espresso brewing system. It is simply plain or flavor infused coffee. And, of course, you can also buy tea, hot chocolate, and lemonade pods. This is really just for anyone who wants a quick cup of coffee in the morning or anytime during the day. I often make a cup of decaf on winter evenings.
Strangely enough, one of the features I love most about this coffee maker is that it's red. I appreciate that it's a little more interesting than the typical black coffee makers. It is also extremely convenient and fits nicely in a corner on my kitchen countertop.
One thing to remember is that it's not fancy. It is cute and fits nicely on the countertop but it's made of plastic. That's not a big deal, at least from my perspective, because I treat my appliances kindly and it should still last a long time.
The good news for you is, this coffee maker is only $59 at Walmart. I have heard of them being sold for as low as $49. If you're interested in buying this system, you might want to watch for a sale.
But when you compare the cost of that to my last brewing system, the price is almost the same but it didn't come in different colors and did not have the multi-cup water reservoir. I had to pour my water in for each cup and it was difficult not to spill while pouring into the water reservoir.
If you're in search of a new home coffee maker, I recommend Keurig K-Compact brewer. It is a space-saving brewer designed to leave the smallest footprint possible. The coffee maker is approximately 8" wide, 13" deep and 12" high. There are 3 brewing size selections... 6, 8, or 10 oz.
