Keurig K45 Review – What I liked
The Keurig K45 is a great value for $105.00. Here’s what I love about the Keurig: it makes GREAT coffee every time. As long as you have the right K-Cups, you are almost guaranteed a well-brewed cup of coffee without grounds (gross) or that burnt taste you get after after it sits on a hot plate. Another advantage- it makes tea and other hot beverages (cocoa) without needing to be cleaned out first. This works wonderful for my kids! (After brewing four cups of coffee we ran a tea K-Cup through it and it tasted as good as it would have if we had boiled the water in a kettle.
Keurig K45 Review - What I Didn’t Like
Although it is convenient, reliable, and not bad for the environment, the Keurig K45 does take about 3-4 minutes to initially heat up when you turn it on. But, after the initial warm up, the Keurig K45 will brew your coffee within a short minute (under 60 seconds). Subsequent cups take 1-2 minutes. Additionally, the cup sizes for the Keurig K60/K65 are limited, so you may need two packets to produce a extra large cup of coffee.
Keurig K45 Review - Overall Thoughts
The Keurig K45 is a great purchase if enjoy drinking single cups of coffee. Additionally, if flavored coffees (and other beverages- they offer hot chocolate and teas) are your thing, then this can be a good choice since you have so many k-cup options.
If you’ve decided you want a Keurig, I highly recommend getting the Keurig K45. It is simple, efficient and makes a great cup of coffee.
