K475 features a lot of promising features that make it a matchless best option for your daily brewing routine. Let’s discuss the features one by one.
The water reservoir in the K475 has a capacity of 70oz which means you can brew 7 to 8 cups of coffee before refilling. That’s bigger than most of the coffee machines in the market but not as big as the K575’s 80oz.
The touch panel makes customization and input quite easy. K475 comes with a 2.4 inches digital touch screen that follows simplistic rules and is pretty easy to read and use.
The screen’s bigger here than on machines found further down the Keurig range and will be particularly helpful for anyone in the household who has issues with eyesight or reading problems.
K475 is fully programmable so that you can control your cup of coffee just as you want without wasting time every time. You can pop the pod in and set up a timer for the brew to come on at a certain time that’s so convenient for quick morning cups and late-night cups when you are too tired to go through the whole process. You can also set machines off time when you know it won’t be in use to save power and ultimately expense too. Good for bills, and better for the environment too.
Once you and the other coffee-guzzlers in your house have found their favorite settings, you can store things like brew size and brew strength that saves you a lot of time for setting up the machine.
Like others, it also features Temperature settings so you won’t have to wait for a boiling coffee cup to get down your sip’s temperature and you get a cup of coffee ready to dazzle with the strength, size, and temperature that you love for yourself.
Most of the Keurig machines at this level are very easy to use and the K475 is no exception. You have the extra temperature options to play with if you want, but this is very much the kind of fast-brewing coffee machine, Keurig is become famous for.
The coffee itself is hot and perfectly brewed, and there are literally hundreds of different flavors to choose from and ensures that the aroma and taste of a perfectly brewed coffee are not compromised in any way.
Alternatively, you can carry on using your favorite ground coffee if you pick up the reusable K-Cup separately. That’s much better for the environment as well, of course. But if you’re using pods, you can use K-cup, K-vue, K-mug, and K-carafe that collectively gives you a range from 4oz to 30oz to choose from, that’s amazing.
A big struggle with quick-brewing coffee machines is their noise but Keurig has introduced some kind of new motor technology in the K475 that addresses noise complaints of earlier machines. It’s much better in terms of annoying gooey voices.
Moreover, K475 brews very quickly. Expect your first cup to take around one minute, although I know of people who have owned this machine a while and found that the initial brew time can inch up over time.
Finally, there’s hot water dispenser. It’s quick, and you can use it to whip up other drinks like tea and hot chocolate.
The good news is that the K475 is compatible with accessories like the K-Mug and the K-Carafe. The first lets you take your brew on the road, while the latter lets you cook up a much bigger batch of coffee, but need to be purchased separately.
Another surprising feature of this coffee maker is a removable drip tray which not only allows easy cleaning and emptying but also provides room for any cup size but not taller than 7”.
