The 9 best Keurig coffee makers of 2021


If you’re a coffee drinker, or even if you’re not, you’ve heard of Keurig. The single dose pod coffee system took the world by storm almost three decades ago and has never looked back.

Whether you want to join the Keurig team, are a longtime Keurig fan, or are trying to do your holiday shopping earlier, there is now a Keurig for every type of coffee drinker. The point is, there are an overwhelming number of Keurig models to choose from, so being sure you’ve found the best can be difficult.

Here are some of our favorite Keurig models to help you narrow down your options. And we’ve selected the best Keurig deals to buy online.

Keurig K-Duo Plus Coffee Maker

Sometimes you want one cup of coffee, sometimes you need twelve. The K-Duo Plus takes into account erratic coffee drinking behavior, giving you the option of brewing a single pod cup (6, 8, 10, or 12 ounce) or a 12-cup carafe from coffee grounds. The insulated carafe keeps coffee hot for hours and looks sleek and stylish. One of the main things we love about the K-Duo Plus is its slim design which takes up a lot less space than some other decanter models. You can also pre-program your coffee to brew up to 24 hours in advance.

Keurig K-Elite Coffee Maker, Single Serve K-Cup Pod Coffee Maker

The Keurig K-Elite is one of the brand’s best-selling and top-rated models. This sleek stainless steel single-cup machine gives you the flexibility to brew a 6, 8, 10 or 12 ounce cup from a pod. You can also brew from grounds with the My K-Cup Universal Reusable Coffee Filter (sold separately). The K-Elite has a strong brew function for a more robust cup of tea and an ice brew function. With a 75-ounce tank, you’ll spend less time filling the machine between cups.

Keurig K-Classic Coffee Maker

If you’re the nostalgic type, the Keurig K-Classic is where it all started. Compared to the K-Elite, this is more of a “no-frills” model. With a 48-ounce tank and only the ability to brew 6, 8, or 10-ounce cups, this Keurig comes at a lower price point as well.

Keurig K-Café Special Edition

Keurig K-Cafe Special Edition Single Serve K-Cup Pod Coffee Maker.

The Keurig K-Cafe has been specially designed for lovers of milk froth. This model allows you to enjoy 6, 8, 10 or 12 ounce lattes or cappuccinos. It comes with a powerful brew feature, a spacious 60-ounce reservoir, and a dishwasher-safe milk frothing system. The overall system takes up a little more space on your countertop but also leaves you a little more room in your wallet (it’s more expensive).

Keurig K-Supreme coffee maker

The Keurig K-Supreme is a space-saving unit with many innovations. First, the 66-ounce adjustable reservoir lets you configure your coffee maker for optimal counter space. Then the K-Supreme is equipped with MultiStream technology, which saturates any k-cup pod more deeply to give you maximum taste. Need even more flavor? The strong brew feature will quickly send you to Flavortown (without Guy Fieri).

Keurig K-Mini Coffee Maker

This mini yet powerful model can brew any 6 to 12 oz cup size. The only downside is that you have to refill the water after each use. The upside is that if you’re looking for a coffee maker that fits into your car’s center console, this could be the one.

Keurig K-Slim Coffee Maker

The Kuerig K-Slim is essentially a slightly larger version of the K-Mini, due to its removable 46-ounce reservoir. The K-Slim also has a removable drip tray that can accommodate travel mugs.

Keurig K-Supreme Plus Smart Brewer with BrewID

The Keurig K-Supreme Plus, Smart Brewer with BrewID, has all the features of regular K-Supreme with smart technology injected. First, the BrewID automatically recognizes the type of K-cup pod you are using and adjusts the brew temperature and strength for the tastiest cup of coffee. The K-Supreme Plus allows you to tailor the strength and temperature of your brew directly on the machine itself or remotely through your smartphone app if you like customization. You’ll also get a slightly larger tank (78 ounces).

Keurig K2500 Single Serve Commercial Coffee Maker
