Whether you’re brewing your first cup of the day or coming in after a long days work, you can guarantee your drink will taste fresh. The Keurig K45 Elite Brewing System can brew tea, coffee and iced drinks with one touch.
Firstly it’s important to note that this coffee maker can take a K-cup and reusable coffee filters, this is great if you prefer a specific blend when drinking coffee. Simply fill up a reusable filter, fill the water reservoir and brew your coffee!
The Keurig K45 Elite Brewing System is available in 4 colors, and includes a 12 pack of coffee blends to get you started. In comparison to the 200 degrees from zojirushi the Keurig K45 brews coffee at 192 degrees, which they feel is the perfect temperature to brew coffee at.
How long does brewing take?
Once you turn the Keurig Elite on it takes about 4 minutes to reach 192 degrees, after it has reached that heat it took approximately 70 seconds to brew coffee. If you’re interested in saving energy then you will no doubt appreciate the keurig’s auto off feature, turning off 2 hours after your last brew. If however you don’t want it to automatically turn off, simply switch the feature off.View Latest Price
With 3 different brewing sizes you can control how much coffee you can make, a useful feature for when you have friends and family round, or when you’re just looking for quick energy before dashing out. Currently there are over 200 different K-cup flavors available so you won’t be short of choice. If like me however, you enjoy a certain blend, the K45 Elite has you covered, just fill a reusable K-cup with your mix and you’re good to go!
This machine should be complimented for its adaptability, obviously if you don’t feel like coffee simply switch the filter and enjoy iced tea, hot chocolate or even a festiive drink. Personally I appreciate the water quality I get once filtered, it really does make a difference in how fresh and crisp it tastes, I add in freshly squeezed lemon juice and it’s great.
Unfortunately the K45 Elite brewing system only comes with one filter which is a little unfortunate however they are inexpensive and easy to get.
After you’re finished brewing, remove the K-Cup and wipe down the outside of the coffee machine with a soft damp non-abrasive cloth. Remove and discard water in the drip tray, if needed, and wipe it clean. The drip tray is not dishwasher safe. You’ll want to empty and rinse the water reservoir every few days. To keep water moving smoothly through the machine, clean the Filter Screen and Water Reservoir every week or so.
Amazon scores and reviews
Receiving an incredible score of 4.6 out of 5 stars, made all the more impressive when it has over 2400 reviews. It obviously stands the test of time and with the year warranty that’s always nice for peace of mind. A couple negatives mentioned are that it doesn’t have a large water reservoir however it does only need refilling so not a big problem. The small amount of complaints are easily outweighed by the outstanding quality of freshly brewed coffee it makes.Read Customer Reviews..
In conclusion the K45 Elite Brewing System really does make excellent drinks and at that speed it’s a great addition to any kitchen.
