Keurig K Mini Plus Coffee Maker Review

In these modern times, some caffeine in the morning is a must when you’re in a hurry. If you consider yourself a coffee person like me, you probably understand the struggle of running late for work every other day and having to wait for the first coffee of the day. Seconds feel like hours when you are waiting for your coffee to finish making. I used to go through that same struggle every day until I made one of my best investments and bought a K-Mini Plus.

The Keurig K Mini Plus coffee maker comes in different colors like black, cardinal red, evening teal, studio gray, and white.

Dimensions and Capacity

The machine has a height of just over 12 inches and is only 4 inches wide. That is much smaller than other coffee makers out there in the market. It has a water reservoir that can fill up to a minimum of 6oz and 12oz. The water reservoir, being removable, is very easy to clean.

It has its own pod storage unit, which allows you to store up to 9 pods at a time.

The drip tray is removable, which can hold up to 8oz of overflow. The machine fits a 6-inch mug, but if you have a slightly bigger cup, you can fit a 7-inch cup if you remove the drip tray.

Design

The design of the coffee maker does not make it look cheap or in any way old fashioned. It looks just as modern as other high-end expensive coffee makers available in the market. The Keurig K Mini Plus comes with a cord length of 24 inches, which means you don’t have to find a spot for it next to the switchboard.

Auto Shutoff

The Keurig K Mini Plus has another handy feature which turns the machine off automatically after 90 seconds of inactivity. You can grab your dose of caffeine and get going, not having to worry about electricity wastage or the machine running for no reason when you are out of the house.

How To Clean Your K-Mini Coffee Maker

  1. Remove the water reservoir and thoroughly clean it by rinsing it with water and drying it with a lint-free cloth.
  2. Remove the drip tray and rinse it. Wait for it to dry a little bit.
  3. Make sure to remove the used pod after you have done making your coffee. Also, remove the pod holder and clean it with water.
  4. Fill the water reservoir with clean water and run the machine without a pod. The water will go through the machine, clean it, and exit into the cup. At this point, your coffee maker is pretty much as good as new.

How To Use The K-Mini Coffee Maker

The way you use this coffee maker is pretty straight forward. You just follow a few simple steps, and you have your cup of coffee ready in no time.

  1. Fill the Keurig K Mini Plus water reservoir with as much water as you want in your coffee cup. Whatever you put in the water reservoir will end up in your cup. Make sure you don’t put more or less than the amount you want to drink.
  2. Lift the front lid of the coffee machine and place a pod in the pod holder. Then close the lid.
  3. To start the machine, press the power button.
  4. Press the brew button, and the coffee maker will start brewing. You have a small button that says, “Strong.” If you want your coffee to be a little stronger, tap that button right after pressing the brew button.
  5. Enjoy!

What I Liked About The K-Mini Plus

  • It is cheaper than other coffee makers in the market. You will save a lot of money if you buy this coffee maker.
  • It is much more space-efficient. It takes up very little space, having a width of fewer than 5 inches. You can put it in your kitchen, or any other table that you like.
  • The added pod storage unit allows you to free up a little more space on your kitchen counter if you own one of those pod holders.
  • It automatically turns off after 90 seconds of your last brew. It means you don’t have to worry about unintentional power wastage.
  • A long 24-inch cord allows you to set it up on a table even if it is a little far away from the socket.
  • Takes just over 2 minutes after you press the brew button to get your cup of coffee ready.

What I Didn’t Like About The K-Mini Plus

  • It is a little louder than some of the other coffee machines. You might even find this specific model a little louder than other Keurig models.
  • It just brews one cup at a time.
  • It does not have a water reserve. You will have to add water to the water reservoir each time you want to brew a coffee cup.

Conclusion

When I first saw the Keurig K Mini Plus, I was skeptical about how a cheap coffee maker would perform. Will it be worth it? Will I be looking for a new coffee machine in a month? Am I going to wake up one morning and find the machine not working for no reason? But I can be the one to tell you; it was worth it. I saved a lot of money by going for the Keurig K Mini Plus instead of any other expensive coffee machine. It looks great on my kitchen counter and gives me my cup of coffee precisely as I want it, delicious.
