Hi everyone! I recently received the new Keurig 2.0 K550 Brewing System free from Influenster as part of one of their VoxBox campaigns and would like to post my review for all of my coffee loving readers! Sorry it’s not nails, but if you enjoy a cup of joe you won’t want to miss this post 😉
The new Keurig 2.0 offers several improvements over previous Keurig models:
- the option to brew either a single-cup beverage or a 4-cup carafe (this is super convenient particularly when you have guests in town or are entertaining)
- the option to select among 3 coffee cup sizes and coffee strengths
- a sleek touchscreen that makes brewing and changing settings simple and easy (one of the cool new settings includes changing the backlighting of the brewer ~ see the photos below)
- separate settings for hot cocoa and other specialty beverages like lattes and mochas
I was pleased that the new Keurig 2.0 is comparable in size to my old Keurig brewer and takes up the same amount of counter space. This is a big deal in my kitchen, which is tiny so counter space is a hot commodity! The instructions were easy to follow and setup was a cinch ~ basically clean, plug in and add water.
One thing to note before you make coffee in the Keurig 2.0 brewer: this model will only brew Keurig Brand K-Cups. You can tell if the K-Cup is Keurig Brand by looking for the Keurig Brewed Logo on the box of K-Cups or on the individual pod (the Keurig Brand K-Cups also have a white border that the brewer is able to scan).
