Keurig® 2.0 K200 Brewing System Review

My hubby and I are both coffee drinkers.  He has been drinking coffee since he was in diapers (maybe not literally) and I have only been drinking coffee since I had a second kid in diapers (two at the SAME time!!).  Once I started I haven’t looked back and now I religiously need at least 16 oz. a morning to get my day running smoothly.  We have a standard drip coffee machine that we use to brew 8 cups of coffee each morning – this fills both of our mugs and leaves a little extra just in case I need it!

I was excited but hesitant to test out the K200 as it brews single cups (6, 8 or 10 oz option) and that doesn’t hit my 16 oz mark.  I have found that if you run the K200 through the same k-cup twice you can get your 16 oz and I don’t find that is weak.  I know this isn’t the intended use but it works for us.  Another thing we like is the option to dispense hot water – this is nice if we want to make a cup of hot cocoa without having to use the microwave.

I like that this K200 has the option of adding a carafe so you can brew up to 4 cups at a time.  I’ve looked at this insulated one on Amazon a lot but I’m not ready to commit to purchasing it when I have a perfectly good coffee maker.  Another thing that I hesitate with is that you have to continue to buy k-cups.  I like that you can purchase reusable k-cups that you can fill with the coffee of your choice but again that is an additional cost.  Ideally I would buy the insulated carafe and the Eco Carafe.

I have been rinsing and saving the k-cups to use to make some cute crafts with the kids – check out some of the cool stuff you can do on my #HelloKeurig board on Pinterest.

PROS:

  • Single brew
  • Variety in coffee, hot cocoa, tea
  • Looks nice
  • Optional carafe
  • Quick brew
  • Option to buy reusable k-cup or k-carafe pods

CONS:

  • Higher cost to purchase k-cups or k-carafes vs. standard coffee
  • Only can brew a single cup without the purchase of Carafe
  • Additional purchase of Carafe
  • Additional cost to purchase a reusable k-cup or k-carafe pod

MY VERDICT:

I like the machine, but I would need to spend the money on the insulated carafe and reusable k-carafe pod to make it worth it for me.  If you are a coffee drinking household that consumes more than 32oz of coffee a morning I wouldn’t recommend this machine.  If you only drink 8 or 10 oz of coffee at a time this machine would be perfect for you!
