Keurig coffeemakers and K-cup machines can help you make your morning coffee or other hot drink quickly and with little mess. These machines allow you to make coffee drinks in a variety of flavors, tea, hot chocolate, apple cider, and several other hot beverage types in just a few minutes.

How does a Keurig K-cup coffee maker work?

As hot water runs through the brewing system into the K-cup pod, the ground beans or other materials become saturated. The water then flows through the paper filter within the K-cup. With gentle pressure, your machine is able to get out every ounce of your coffee or other warm beverage grounds and to serve it directly to your cup.

Are Keurig coffeemaker machines available in different colors?

The Keurig brand offers several of its coffeemakers and beverage systems in different colors. In addition to the traditional colors of black, white, and chrome, you can select from other colors to coordinate with the existing decor in your kitchen. Keurig offers the following color choices:

  • Red
  • Vintage Red
  • Oasis Green
  • Plum Gray
  • Turquoise
  • Cinammon
  • Peacock Blue
  • Sandy Pearl
Can you add milk to your Keurig machine?

You should only use water in your Keurig coffee brewing machine. If you want milk in your coffee or other hot drink, you can add the milk after your Keurig is done brewing. You also have the option to use milk pods, which brew the same way that coffee from a pod cup would.

Can you use any ground coffee in a Keurig machine?

When Keurig first released their home brewers in 2004, this was not an option. You were limited to the brands and types of drinks that created and marketed pods. However, since then, using your own coffee or tea has become an option. Keurig has come out with a reusable K-Cup filter that allows you to use your own coffee grounds for use with all 2.0 brewers.

What does the "Descale" screen on the Keurig mean?

If your coffeemaker displays the Descale message, this means it is time to clean the inside of your machine. Over time, water within your Keurig coffeemaker can cause residue. Descaling your coffee machine removes any potential build-up and residue on the inside of the system. Doing this will help ensure that your machine runs like it is supposed to and that your coffee or other drink tastes its best.
