If you want to enjoy the leisure of having a big reservoir then dealing with the size is the price you have to pay.

The machine has a lot of features and is lightweight but it is not as durable as other coffee makers. People have to replace it after a certain span of time. Consumers have also faced water leakage. The machine looks flimsy which gives the impression that it is not durable. The Keurig K- Elite Coffee Maker gives a slight plastic aftertaste; however it is less than all the other models.

Consumer Ratings for the Keurig K-Elite Coffee Maker:

At the time of writing the Keurig K-Elite has over 16,500 reviews on Amazon currently and has an average rating of 4.8 out of 5 stars. 86% percent of these reviews have given it the full five stars.

A lot of customers like that this coffee maker feels solid and uses metal instead of just plastic. Some customers have mentioned that it makes weak coffee but others have pointed out that that may be because they are using lighter coffee pods for a bigger sized cup which would dilute the coffee. This model also has a very small cup size which gives you the most concentrated coffee.

Some reviewers have complained that this coffee machine does not last very long and leaks on and off all over their space but Keurig provided excellent customer care and replaced the faulty machine. It has a larger water reservoir which people appreciate and it is also easy to take off and put back on. Some reviewers have also mentioned that the machine works better if water with minerals is used.

Many customers love that because it is single serve, it is also fast and does not lead to a lot of waste which makes it cheaper in the long run. Those who don’t want to contribute to waste also use My K-Pod with fresh grinded coffee. They see the Keurig K-Elite as an investment. Fresh coffee, different flavors and very very little mess.

Bottom Line:

Keurig K-Elite Coffee Maker stands out as the only Keurig Hot and Cold Brewer available in the market. It has a great variety in terms of options. By making use of its additional features and settings, you can brew a delicious cup of coffee of your choice, in just a minute.
