Fast, easy single-cup coffee maker with three brew sizes

If you want a fast, simple-to-use single serve coffee maker that everyone in the family (non-coffee drinkers as well) can enjoy, the Keurig K45 Elite is a stylish, convenient home brewer that looks good on the counter and makes delicious drinks. Kids can enjoy hot cocoa one minute, and you can brew up a quick cup of coffee or tea the next.

Brews in under a minute

Speed is definitely a plus when it comes to the K45. In the morning, you’re often in a rush and can’t wait for your brewer at home. You either have to buy an expensive drink on the road or endure stale office coffee. With the K45, you can brew a hot drink in under a minute and be on your way.

Removable 48 oz. water reservoir

The hot water that makes all your drinks is stored in a removable 48-ounce reservoir. It’s large enough so everyone in the family can enjoy a drink, and when the water does run out, the tank is easy to quickly refill. With 48 ounces, you get about six cups.

6 oz, 8 oz, or 10 oz cup sizes

Not everyone likes the same size of drink. You might want a larger cup than what your child is satisfied with, and the Keurig K45 knows this. You can choose between a 6 oz, 8 oz, or 10 oz cup size so you don’t have to toss half of your drink down the sink, or brew another K-cup when you don’t have enough.

Strengths

Great addition to kitchen

This isn’t like one of those old coffee makers with a coffee-stained, clunky glass pot. The K45 Elite is a great addition to your kitchen counter. It’s stylish and even comes in four beautiful colors: blue, white, black, and maroon. It also comes with 24-hour digital clock and combines style with function.

Little to no clean-up

Another advantage to the Keurig K45 Elite is that it needs virtually no clean-up. With the K-cups keeping everything clean and contained, you don’t have to mess with cleaning out coffee grounds or tea leaves. To wash out the machine so it’s like new, just brew a plain cup of hot water.

Comes with sampler

As an added bonus to the K45, you get a 12-count K-cup variety pack. This is a great opportunity to try out all the flavors (for free) and choose the ones you like best so you never waste your money on a K-cup flavor you dislike.

Weaknesses

K-cup price

K-cups are expensive. If you drink a lot of coffee, this is more expensive than buying beans, ground coffee, or using other single-serving cups. However, you might find more satisfaction with K-cup flavors and not need as much coffee. You can also always choose the largest size on the machine and get the most out of each K-cup (more water does equal weaker coffee). You also are still saving more money than if you went out and bought drinks at a coffee shop.

Overall Review

The Keurig K45 Elite single-cup home brewing system is ideal for a family that loves coffee, tea, and hot cocoa. With a full tank of water, you get about six cups. If you choose so, you could have six cups with each being a different flavor, with no clean-up in between necessary. Everyone in the family can enjoy this machine. It’s fast, easy to use, and easy to maintain.
