Thankful For My Keurig Coffee Maker (#1)

"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.

I ordered a Keurig and my husband said he would rather make a pot of coffee and drink it all day... which he does. So I sent it back.

Hi Carol- as a fellow coffee drinker, I understand!  We begin the day with our coffee and end it that way as well. Glad you got the color you wanted.

How fun, and coffee is sure one of those important morning rituals. My daughter has the big red Kuerig, a gift from me, and I like it's cheery look on the kitchen counter. Sadly, we are the coffee snobs you refer to. Lol. Especially Bernie. :)

The day cannot start without coffee!!  Sometimes I will drive to my office for the sole purpose of getting coffee. Plus my office stocks a lot of flavored creamers, which I'm addicted to.  Maybe I'm more of a coffee creamer person rather than a coffee person.

Hello Carol,  I am a big coffee coffee drinker from 630 am to noon.  Not sure if I am ready for a one cup at a time maker yet, but maybe.

Hi Anna Banana Kruchten CRB, CRS 602-380-4886 ,
Thought I had responded to your comment but guess not.  Anyway, thanks for the kind words about my picture.  I think my pictures usually look better than I actually do!  LOL   You can buy what they call "Half Caff" in pods but it may not be the blend you like.  The cold is getting better, thank you.

Hi Hannah Williams ,
That's a good tip about ordering online.  I didn't know it was exclusive to WalMart.  Good thing I didn't go looking elsewhere.  So glad I saw your post!

Hi Rebecca Gaujot, Realtor® ,
Each to his own, I guess.  If your husband drinks a lot of coffee it's probably cheaper by the pot.

The best of both worlds being able to use pods or fresh beans.  I love it.

Hi Kathy Streib ,
I don't usually end the day with coffee but, come Winter, I often do drink decaf.

Hi Francine Viola ,
Your creamer comment made me laugh.  If you drive to the office for coffee, I suspect it really is for the flavored creamer.  I'm a black coffee drinker, but I use a little white chocolate cappuccino powder occasionally to mix life up.

Hi Will Hamm ,
If you drink that much coffee, you're probably better off with a pot.
