Keurig K-Elite Coffee Maker Review 2020

The Keurig K-Elite is a collaborative effort of everything Keurig has learned in their quest to dominate the single-serving coffee machine market. Keurig has become well-known as the foremost producer of single-serving coffee makers. They popularized the “K-Cup” and have encouraged a lot of forms of coffees and cappuccinos to ditch their old-fashioned drip coffee maker in favor of a single-serving option.

K-Elite Coffee review 2020

Design

Keurig K-Elite is one of their larger brewers with a footprint of 9.9 inches by 12.7 inches. When the brewer is closed, it is 13.1 inches tall. When you open it, the height approaches almost  16.5 inches, which makes it perfect for a normal kitchen counter and cabinet setting.

The large size of the brewer is not wasted as it is one of the most powerful and feature-filled Keurig machines on the market. It boasts an enormous 75-ounce water reservoir, which will only need to be refilled on a weekly basis if you only drink one cup every morning. A charcoal water filter can be installed in the bottom of the reservoir to improve taste and the longevity of the machine. If you’re in an area that has relatively soft water, you may be able to opt-out of using the water filter.

The machine is wrapped in an elegant Brushed Slate finish, giving it a polished look that will make it blend into any environment. This machine will look excellent on your kitchen counter, regardless of your decor.

Features

Key features of the K-Elite coffee maker models include:

Strong Brew: For coffee lovers that enjoy a bold brew, the Strong button increases coffee strength and intensity. This is best when the machine is going to be rocking on a counter owned by the family who has different standards and tastes for coffee. If you want a moderate or light coffee, Keurig K-Elite is here for you. And even some of you want a strong coffee every time, K-Elite still features an answer.

Brew over Ice: If you don’t rock a hot beverage and sometimes starve to have a sip of cold caffeine, K-Elite got the solution. Iced button makes it simple to enjoy a full-flavored, delicious iced coffee by optimizing the brew cycle for brewing over ice and it does not demand any extra effort or assembling.

Modern Design: The K-Elite is available in two contemporary finishes at launch, Brushed Silver and Brushed Slate, and the handle and drip tray are made of metal which adds up for reliability and more durability to the machine. All-metal design also eliminates the problem of a plastic-like tasting coffee that most of the user complain who own a coffee maker made up of plastic material.

Wide Range of Brew Sizes: Brew sizes depend upon the personal choices of the coffee drinker and time. Mostly sometimes we want a full whole cup size and some other times we wish to have just some sips to re-freshen the mood.  K-Elite comes with many choices of brew sizes to choose from according to your desire. Consumers can select from a choice of five cup sizes 4 oz., 6 oz., 8 oz., 10 oz., and 12 oz.

Extra Large Water Reservoir: K-Elite features a large 75oz water reservoir that allows consumers to brew up to eight cups of their desired drink before having to refill, saving time and simplifying the morning routine.

Programmable Features: Not all of us love a hot coffee, or sometimes, we don’t have time to wait for a boiling coffee to get down to a sip able temperature. K-Elite facilitates here with a feature that allows you to adjust your brew temperature. Moreover, you can also select the exact time for brewer on, and set your coffee maker to perform flawlessly in high altitude households.

Hot Water on Demand: Not all coffee machines offer hot water on demand feature. K-Elite is an all-rounder that offers you to get hot water when you need it with the simple touch of a button. That’s perfect for instant soups or oatmeal.

Quiet Brew Technology: No one of us loves the irritating brewing noise that our coffee maker produces. K-Elite, with its Quite Brew Technology help to reduce the noise while brewing to a very low level, making it perfect for offices or reception areas.
