* Compact, single serve coffee maker — great for small spaces
* Fresh coffee in under a minute
* Automatic shut-off for peace of mind
There are obviously merits to the drip coffee maker, or even a fancy home espresso machine, hence their ubiquitous nature in homes across America. But these are family-sized affairs, appliances that require space and an adequate volume of consumption to justify. For everyone else, you need a Keurig.
The K50 coffee maker from Keurig makes a great gift for those about to live solo, like new high school and college grads. Its size and single-serve K-cup technology are well-suited to dorm-style living or small starter apartments, and with the Keurig, there’s no need to brew four cups worth of coffee when all you need is one.
Just pop the pre-measured coffee pod in and hit start; the machine can brew beverages in 6, 8 or 10-ounce sizes. And it’s not just for coffee, either – K-cup options are available for tea, hot cocoa, or iced beverage formulas, all ready in under a minute.
The Keurig K-cup coffee machine also comes equipped with a 48-ounce water reservoir and removable drip tray, so when the occasion strikes (or there is a crowd), they won’t be deprived of any hospitality — an especially nice touch if that crowd includes you.
