Keurig K-Mini Plus Coffee Maker Review 2020

The Keurig K-Mini Plus is a new take on the old K-Mini K15 coffee brewer. The original K-Mini featured a clunky, bulky design, but it was one of the smallest single-serving coffee makers that Keurig offered. With the release of the K-Mini Plus, Keurig has refined the design, improving on the aesthetics, size, and brewing capability of their bite-sized brewer. Our first impression is that it is a stellar direction to take the Keurig line.

The K-Mini doesn’t come with all that many bells and whistles, but the features it does have pack a serious punch. This single-serving coffee maker is the perfect candidate for those looking to purchase a portable, stow able Keurig. Without further ado, we are going to dive into what we think makes this the best small brewer Keurig has ever manufactured.

Keurig K-Mini Plus Coffee Maker Review

Design

At less than 5 inches wide, this Keurig is an exceptional candidate for small kitchens. We love that it slides into spaces on the counter that were previously wasted kitchen real estate.

The brewer weighs in at less than 5 pounds, making it the perfect travel companion. It also measures in at 11.3″ deep by 4.5″ wide by 12.1″ tall, making it no bulkier than a large textbook

The drip tray can hold up to one full cup of liquid for those times where you accidentally forget to put a cup under the brew nozzle. The drip tray is also removable for easy emptying and rinsing.

The brewer can fit travel mugs up to 7″ tall by removing the drip tray, making it great for the commuter. The removable drip tray can be simply slid away from the machine to make room for your travel mug.

The power cable can be wound up into the machine so that you can easily store the device in any nook or cranny in your kitchen. This also makes the brewer unbelievably portable.

This brewer comes with a cylindrical pod storage container that is capable of holding up to 9 K-Cup pods. When the brewer is not in use, it fits perfectly into the machine under the brew nozzle so that your K-Mini Plus can be quickly stored with an ample supply of coffee for your next brew.

Features

Perfect for one cup: The K-Mini Plus is an example of an appliance that does one thing exceptionally well, brewing a single cup of coffee. Everything about this brewer was designed around the one-cup philosophy. If you’re a semi-regular coffee drinker, this will be the perfect machine for you.

Sleek black and chrome design: The brewer features beautiful branding. The machine is emblazoned with the Keurig logo on a silver medallion on the surface of the coffee maker.

Simple user interface: The user interface on K-Mini Plus is one of the most minimalist among others. It features only two buttons, power, and strength. The power button turns the machine on and off. The strong button brews a bolder cup of coffee.

Easy to brew: Brewing in the K-Mini Plus is as easy as ever. After powering up, simply insert a K-Cup, then push down on the lever and brewing will commence.

Strong brew mode: The K-Mini plus features a Strong Brew mode that enables the brewer to make a bolder, more intense cup of coffee. This is great for those who need a more robust morning pick-me-up.

Auto-off: The brewer is equipped with an auto-off feature to save you from worrying if you turned off your coffee maker on your way to work. The coffee maker is designed to brew one cup at a time, so this can be a handy feature for the one-cup-a-day coffee drinker.

Removable water reservoir: The water reservoir is sized for a single serving and is completely removable, making the filling and cleaning it a breeze. Another good way to fill the brewer is to fill your coffee mug with water then pour it into the reservoir. That way you know exactly how full your cup of coffee will be.

Brewing sizes: This new brewer is capable of brewing any cup of coffee between 6 and 12 ounces just fill the removable water reservoir with your desired amount. This makes brewing unbelievably simple. Fill the reservoir with a minimum 6 ounces required to brew a small cup of coffee. And for a larger cup, fill the reservoir to the max line and enjoy a large cup of freshly brewed coffee.

 

Our Verdict:

The Keurig K-Mini Plus is an amazing little machine. And when we say little, we mean it. At less than 5 inches wide, it is perfect for anyone looking to purchase a Keurig without having to commit to the footprint of a larger machine. This machine looks as sleek as it is slim. Featuring chrome accents against matte black, it catches the eye and looks very sophisticated.

The K-Mini is only capable of brewing one cup at a time, but the single-cup water reservoir can hold between 6 and 12 ounces of water with clear markings on the side so you know how much coffee you’ll be making. After you’ve finished brewing your cup of coffee, the machine automatically shuts off so you don’t have to worry about remembering to turn it off. The brewer features a strong brew for those looking to add even more pep to their morning routine.
