Can We Help You Find The Right Keurig For You?
I need help finding the best model for my use.

Keurig is a popular single-serve coffee maker because it gives you coffee instantly, pop in a K-Cup, hit a button and there comes your coffee! But just because it gives coffee instantly, does it mean it is Instant Coffee?
First, let’s define what Instant Coffee is: It’s the type of coffee you scoop into a mug, add hot water, dissolve the coffee in the water and you’re done. It’s the cheapest and fastest way to brew a cup of coffee, but it’s not necessarily the best. Instant coffee is made of coffee crystals and powder, which are derived from brewed coffee, that’s why it can dissolve in water.
Brewing a cup of coffee using a Keurig K-Cup is just a fast as instant coffee, the machine forces hot water through the K-Cup and you get a nice cup of coffee in under a minute. This is where the confusion happens…. K-Cups are just as convenient as Instant Coffee, but it’s not instant coffee.
K-Cups are available from many different coffee brands: Starbucks, Green Mountain, Dunkin’ Donuts, Tully’s and many more. These K-Cups are loaded with the optimal amount of coffee ground (actual coffee ground that doesn’t dissolve in hot water), for the best cup of coffee.
