Keurig Kold Drinkmaker Review

Keurig has recently taken the java industry by storm with its easy-to-use K-Cups and coffee maker,that is Keurig Kold. Rather than have to measure out and make coffee for yourself or go to a coffee shop, you now just have to put the K-Cup of your choice in the Keurig kold drink maker, insert your mug under it, then press a button. The process now is much simpler. What are more amazing things about this New Keurig Model? Keep reading my Keurig kold review.

Design

The Keurig Kold is said to be quite, but for good reason. That is, while the heating parts in coffee machines can be relatively miniaturized, it will need much more space is needed an effective refrigeration system. And apart from the larger frame, this is not mistakably a Keurig machine.

In addition, there is a big Keurig logo pasted across the front as the first clue, but even without it, the Kold's large, round metal handle which evaluates to reveal the circular recess for Kold Pods looks like one of Keurig's coffee machines, such as Keurig 2.0.

A large, glowing button is designed next to the right of the dispenser, with a cooling gauge under it. There is also a 48-ounce water reservoir sitting to the left of the dispenser, a clear, rectangular compartment that lifts out of the Keurig Kold for filling.

This machine isn't a connected device, so it doesn’t come with any app controls or automation for pressing a button and getting a beverage process. This makes setting up and using much simpler. In your first time pf using Keurig Kold, you have to plug it in and wait up to two hours for the refrigeration system to cool. Fill the water reservoir up and insert the available priming pod, a reusable purple rubber funnel, into the Kold Pod recess. Have it work about a cycle, then discard the water. The Keurig Kold is well-matched with any Kold Pods.

​Keurig Kold Pods

The pods themselves are a little larger and more complex than K-Cups. They are designed in the same way, with a foil top the machine punches to reach the ingredients and brew a beverage. They also include "Karbonator Beads" (for producing fizzy beverages) that let the Kold carbonate your drink from the flat water in the reservoir. The pods include nozzles on the undersides which are covered by foil seals which must be removed before use. Notches on the pods make sure that they sit appropriately in the machine.

You have to buy Kold Pods separately for there are no samples like an accessories included with the Keurig Kold, though you can see a pair of tumbler-style glasses coming with the machine. They're good-looking, simple glasses that fit perfectly under the dispenser.

Keurig provides with a range of Kold Pods for you to choose from for your machine. Some of the most popular pods are Seraphine Persian Lime seltzer, Tierny's Passion Fruit Raspberry and Lemon Mint iced teas, Red Barn Spiced Root Beer and Zesty Lemon Lime craft sodas, and Coca-Cola Zero. The sodas and seltzer are all carbonated; the iced tea is flat.

Functions

Keurig Kold is really an innovation of Keurig. It comes with advanced fucnions, especially in term of the beverages to make. The drinks made of Keurig KOLD are perfectly carbonated, chilled and dispensed in fresh 8-oz. It serves at the ideal temperature – all without a CO2 canister.

Keurig KOLD first featured a variety of drinks brands, such as Coca-Cola,Diet Coke, Coke Zero, Sprite and Fanta. Within a few months, Coca-Cola Life, and other US brands from The Coca-Cola Company, including Gold Peak tea and vitamin water XXX, join the roster. More brands in multiple categories including sparkling, tea, energy, mixers, enhanced waters and sports drinks will be added in the list of drinks can be made with Keurig Kold.

In addition to these, the machine doesn’t require a CO2 canister. This is really good news to SodaStream users who understand the pain of running out of CO2 and are trying to find somewhere to get a refill. Rather than use CO2 canisters, each pod will include carbonation beads, which means that if you have a flavor pod and a machine, you’ll have everything you need to make soda at home.

Thanks to the operation and simplicity, the share many common things with highly popular Keurig K-cup system. What you need is just to take the Vue pod, put the pod in the item, close the handle, push the button and the you will have your coffee ready in just one minute. However, that’s not all, the really awesome thing about Vue is that it’s a totally programmable coffee maker. Yeah, using Vue, you can adjust the size, strength as well as the temperature of your drinks to your desire. You can also control water temperature or set the timer to turn on the machine each morning for you, and much more.

The touchscreen designed inside this machine is extremely easy to use. It comes with three basic drink options, including coffee/tea, brew over ice and cafe drinks and you can have your desired cup of coffee just by choosing the one you want.

And as your pod choice, you can brew coffee, tea, hot chocolate, iced coffee/tea and the specially offered cafe beverages as well. Particularly, for coffee, you can choose your wished strength, by selecting regular/ strong option. And, one more feature which impress users is a large number of cup sizes. Yeah, according to your model, there are 7 or 8 different cup sizes for you to choose from: 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16 and 18 oz. Therefore, Vue pods are available in two different sizes: regular and travel mug size.

The Pods

Although the system itself is awesome and is able to give you great coffee, you should invest vue pods online. In fact, vue cups are not as easy to find at grocery stores as k-cups.

There are currently 48 pod choices for you to choose from (coffee, tea and hot chocolate).

Unlike non-recyclable k-cups, the vue cups are made of no5 plastic so they are recyclable in most areas. And, in case you want to use your own coffee, the reusable vue cup is also available. The filter matches well with all Vue models: V700, V600 and V500.

Improved Features

Some improved features of Vue compared to the former versions include:

  • It is totally programmable
  • It introduces strength and temperature control
  • The brew sizes are various, from 8 oz to 18oz
  • It comes with removable drip tray for larger cups

  • It has removable 74 oz water reservoir with flip top lid
  • The cups are recyclable
  • Vue cups are available in various sizes so you will never have to worry about coffee diluted

Models

Currently, there are four different Vue home-use models. They are V500, V600, V700 and V1200.  All of them use the same technology so no matter what model you choose, you don’t have to worry about your drink’s quality. With any models, you can make either hot or iced coffee, regular or strong coffee, tea, or hot chocolate. They all come with a programmable touchscreen with drink strength, temperature and size control. The removable water reservoir is designed with flip-top lid and removable & adjustable drip tray and energy saving mode (on/off).

The small difference lies in cup and reservoir size, dimensions and of course, and the price.

Basic Things About A Coffee Maker

Basic-Things-About-A-Coffee-Maker

You are a coffee lover and in plan to invest a coffee maker at home? SO how much do have you known about this awesome appliance? Yeah, my honest article today will provide you with the basic information that any coffee maker owner should know. Let’s follow to gain the best understanding about your machine and be able to operate it well.

Coffee maker: How does it work?

Coffee maker makes use of a simple process to brew nice morning cup of joe. It uses stored water reserves to remove flavor from ground coffee beans. As long as the workout finishes, there will be a delicious brew that’s ready to serve you. Most drip coffee makers apply the same method to make this infusion. And we can divide the process into some different steps.

How does it start?

Most of coffee makers available in the market now keep water in a container before letting you start your brewing process. You can use the carafe to determine the amount of water that you want to use, then add it into the tank on the top of the device. These tanks are available in several different sizes. They keep enough water to make you a full pot of coffee while you are not required to completely fill the container for the process to work. The machine will store water in the container until you turn on the machine and start brewing.

How does it heat

If you take a look into at the container before adding water, you will easily find a small hole in the base. In fact, water drains via this hole and into a tube. From here, it accesses the bottom of the coffee maker. The water is kept into its tube while it runs through heating element. The water reaches its boiling temperature there, and air bubbles force it up the tube to the top of the device.

The Drip

As long as the heated water reaches the top of the coffee maker, it drips out into ground coffee beans. It drips continuously, which helps to soak the beans and finally run through the filter before getting through the carafe below. During the dripping process, the coffee maker makes uses of the heated water to take out the entire flavor that the roasted beans have to offer.

Ok, here are not all, but they are basic things that any coffee maker owners need to know. So let’s learn to understand your machine well and be able to make it work at its best for you. Ok, so what more are you waiting for? Order your desired coffee maker right now and enjoy nice cup of coffee whenever you want.

Keurig K10 mini plus (B10/B31) is a compact single coffee maker for using at home. It offers 3 different choices, including 6 oz, 8 oz or 10 oz ounces of coffee each cup.

Keurig mini plus is designed with better K-cups, rather than ground coffee, making it much easier for you to install, clean, maintain as well as make coffee constantly. However, you can still make your preferable ground one, using K-cup reusable coffee filter. But it is not enclosed in the box.

This is an awesome single coffee maker which gives you nice coffee within just two minute. It works when pressurized water is forced through pre-packaged K-cups, making it quicker to exact the flavors.

The single-use water container is large enough to keep 6,8, or 10 ounce cups of coffee or tea. And because it doesn’t hold hot water for quicker subsequent cup making, you will need to pour further water and start from scratch when you want a cup of coffee.

This amazing machine is also easy to use. It has LED lights to show you the setup steps and brewing cycler which are on. There is also a compartment at the back of the item to keep short power cord when it is not in use. It is compact and portable, making it an ideal choice for small spaces like home offices, apartments… last but not least, it comes with several color choices for you to choose.

Coffee making process

It is recommend that you should clean your new Keurig mini plus brewer before making the first cup of coffee, but leave the K-Cup and throw the final cup of hot water.

When it comes to making a cup of coffee, plug the machine into the power outlet, then press “power” button. Lift the lid of water container and add your desired amount of water, then close the lid. Elevate the handle to throw the brew basket. Water will then drain into the brewer.

At the same time, put a cup or a mug of suitable size on the drip tray. Place a K-cup, wait until the water stops draining, then lower the handles. This process takes around 5 seconds only.

Push “brew” button. It is in red when water is heating (around 2 minutes) and will change into solid read once the coffee starts to dispense.

Take out the used K-cup and turn the machine off once the brewing process finishes. You can also let the machine off automatically, normally after 90 seconds of inactivity.

What Are Common Problems Of Keurig Coffee Maker And How To Deal With Them?

Overview

keurig-problemsThe Keurig coffee maker is getting more and more popular in the world of coffee maker for its ease of use, convenience as well as the huge variety of K-cups which offer tasty coffee, hot chocolate or tea. However, everything has two sides, in spite of so many praises like this, there are some keurig coffee maker problems remaining. And my honest article today will address some of the most common keurig problems and ways to deal with them as well. You will finally have your best keurig work fine.

What are common keurig problems and how to deal with them?

Grounds in your cup

This is common issue that many of us have experienced. It often happens when the needle which stabs the K-cup gets clogged with the grounds and the trapped grounds move to your cup on the next brewing, resulting in a horrible grainy texture in your coffee. But don’t be worried too much, this issue can be easily repaired, just by washing the needle with a fine pointy item like a toothpick. And it often mentioned as keurig 2.0 problems. After this needle cleaning, you can enjoy tasty Keurig K-cup coffee, with no grainy grounds remained in your cup!

Plastic tasting coffee

This keurig problems often happens with new Keurig Single Serve coffee machines. When it happens, you will find the coffee brew has a different plastic taste which is unpleasant. It is caused when the residue of the new brewing parts is transmitted to the water throughout the brewing procedure. It can be resolved just by rinsing the brewing line, using white vinegar. So how to conduct the rinsing process? Yeah, here is the specific step:

  • Add a cup of white vinegar in the water container.
  • Have the brew cycle run repeatedly until the container is completely empty, this process will help to clean the brewing line as well as remove plastic taste.
  • It’s now time to rinse the line with water, to stop possible vinegar taste: Pour filtered water in the container and operate the brew cycle until the container is empty.

Ok, now continue your process and making your tasty coffee, there will be no plastic taste remained!

Water line is clogged

Water lines in Keurig brewers are often small, so it can be clogged with grounds and other debris easily. This is a very common keurig problem that you can identify when you find a lesser quantity of coffee in your cup than the amount you have selected before. In case the clog is too bad, you even get no coffee after a brewing cycle! To repair this, blush the water line by operating the brewing cycle with water only, no K-cup. In addition, clean the needle to take out grounds which might be stuck inside. Finally, you will find your water line open and get ready to give you a full cup of great-tasting coffee.

In case the water line has been cleaned up yet, then try descaling the device. And this process will promise to deliver tasty coffee at the push of a button, even it is keurig 2.0 problems,  Keurig k45 or any other ones.

Machine shuts off between brew cycles

Ok, if your Keurig single serve brewer suddenly shuts off during brew cycles, even you have not switched it off, don’t feel worried. Many users have experienced it, too.

This issue is cause due to the fact that the vibrations have dislodged the magnet in the water reservoir. So to deal with it, simply take out the reservoir, then assemble it again, make sure that the magnet is set in correct position. And now, let’s resume your brewing.

The Keurig Brewer is leaking water

If you find some leakages in your Keurig brewer, you are likely to have a keurig problems that the upper rubber gasket is missing, faulty, or inappropriately installed. This part is placed around the upper puncture needle, so to deal with the issue, check whether it is in the place. If not, purchase another one, or contact Keurig if your guarantee is still valid. In case it is still available and the leakage is happening, the issue is due to incorrect adjustment since it is not forming a seal with the K-cup and incoming water, which causes the water and grounds to leak out and make a mess. To repair this, just move the gasket down about ¼ inch to close up the gap between the needle and the K-cup.

Mineral Build-up

Some users assume this issue is a design problem, but it is more of a usual maintenance issue. Every coffee machine needs to be descaled at some point, and the Keurig model is not an exception.

After certain time of using, mineral from the water passing through the brew line will form and make effects on the competence of your brewer. This may also influence your coffee taste since the mineral build-up is likely to cause an unpleasant flavor in your cup. And to descale your machine, buy a “Brew Rite Cleaner” which is particularly designed to remove mineral deposits. Ok, to have this device worked, let’s add water in the Brew Rite Cleaner and make a brew cycle to blush the water line. You can also use white vinegar instead of water, but then remember to use water to eliminate the vinegar. And no matter what way you apply, conduct it every 6 month to have your machine operated optimally.

Keurig K45 – Keurig Elite Coffee Maker Review

You are looking for reliable keurig coffee maker reviews before coming to invest in certain keurig models? So you are in right place, my honest keurig k45 review will provide you with the most reliable knowledge ever in the field. Keep reading so that you will have correct decision

Keurig K45 Elite Brewing System Black Introduction

keurig-k45

This is one of the most popular lower end items in the world of Keurig single cup coffee makers. It is also named the Keurig K45, B45, Keurig Elite B40, and K40. And the “B” and “K” here refer to allocation channels, rather than to differences between machines as many people think. And I am going to use all of these names interchangeably in this review.

The Keurig K45 Elite is designed in some different versions. And the biggest difference is that while the older Keurig B40/K40 includes two cup sizes, the K45/B45 comes with three cup sizes and the B45 offers 2 cup sizes. One more difference is that while some versions offer the optional water filters, others don’t – and if the filter is included, it is packed the box. For the most other parts, the three versions are similar.

One it heats up (it takes around 3 to 4 minutes), the Elite machine allows you to brew a cup of fresh hot coffee in as little as one minute. In addition, it introduces an Auto-Off option which allows you to have the machine to automatically turn off after maximum 2 houses of using, with simple setting. Or if you don’t want it to shut off, you can let it run, making individual cups of coffee or other drinks quickly.

Furthermore, the removable 48-ounce reservoir is large enough to hold up to three 10-ounce cups. If the water is remained, it will be stored inside the item. The keurig k45 elite will stop working once the indicator light of “Add Water” comes on, and it will resume when the tank has been full.

The Keurig B40/K45 is sometimes designed with charcoal water filters and a water filter assembly (check the box description to claim whether it is available). The producer’s objectives of adding these pars is to improve the coffee’s taste for it helps to remove unpleasant tastes, such as like sulpher and chlorine,  out of water, while doesn’t require you to descale the machine regularly.

Indicator lights are like a signal which you can follow to set the machine for brewing. They also signal you when the water runs out of  as well as when the the machine needs to be descaled .

This amazing product features Quiet Brew technology, making it much quieter compared to some other single cup coffee makers. More than that, it even makes no serious noise heating and dispensing water. Many users inform that they find it not loud enough to cause disruption.

The built-in drip tray is removable, allowing the Elite B40 to deal with every kind of mugs, from the taller to medium sized travel mugs.

All plastic elements which directly work with water are BPA, the K-Cups are also included.

Keurig coffer makers are designed to serve from 1-3 modest coffee drinkers. If you’re a heavy coffee drinker, or you often share the brewer with some other people, you should consider robust K145 or K155. They are heavy-use commercial machines which are modified for household use.

Ok, here is some basic information around the amazing single cup coffee makers of Keurig. Let’s continue my honest keurig k45 review with some more detailed and honest information.

What To Consider When It Comes To Keurig Product?

Coffee-Making Process

  • Ok, as any other device, before coming to make a cup of coffee, ensure that the coffee maker is connected to the power and the “Power” button light is on. If not, turn the device on and let it heat, which takes around 4 minutes.
  • Pour water in the water tank to the Max Fill line and keep it into place of the machine.
  • Put a cup or mug on the drip tray.
  • As long as the red “heating” light is off, pick the handle up in order that the K-Cup Pack Holder opens. Place a K-Cup into the container and make the handle as lower as possible to close the lid.
  • Select your desired brew size. After finishing the brewing, elevate the handle and remove the used K-Cup.

Note: if you have just brought a new Keurig Elite coffee machine, remember to clean it carefully before having it work. Just follow the instructions shown in the manual to brew a cup of coffee but leave out the K-Cup and remove the resulting cup of hot water.

Type of Coffee Used

keurig-k-cup

The Keurig K45/B40 allows up to K-Cups. 250+ flavors of coffee and a lot of other drinks.

This great device does not work basing on the K-Cup lids, so it can make any K-Cup, no matter who produces it. This is an improvement compared with the Keurig 2.0 models which only works with Keurig brand K-Cups.

You may also make your preferred ground coffee, using the My K-Cup reusable filter, which is sold separately. There are some third party reusable filters which are well-matched with this device.

Type of Coffee Produced

This keurig k45 elite brewing system allows you to make coffee of a large range of flavors, including dark roast, light roast, flavored coffees and decaf as well. Some popular coffee brands are also accepted, such as Starbucks, Folgers. The flavor of espresso, latte and cappuccino are also available, but there is a little different compared with the traditional espresso.

K-Cups are supposed to serve single use. So make one cup only and toss it. However, you can also use the same K-Cup to make a second brewing, which will offer bigger cup of coffee than the one which is available from the built in cup sizes. But remember that the coffee of the second brewing won’t as good as that of the first brewing.

If you are a very heavy coffee drinker and you want to make the strongest coffee, select the 6-ounce cup size because the less water is, the stronger the coffee will be. You may also like an “extra bold” K-Cup, which includes 30% more ground coffee.

Tea, Hot Chocolate, Iced Coffee and More

K-Cups offer a wised range of flavors, such as popular teas, hot cider, so on. They also introduce “Brew Over Ice” K-cups, which is to iced coffees, teas and lemonade.

Although the Elite cannot cold brew, you yourself can make rewing into a cup of ice to make iced beverages. Pour a 16 oz. cup with ice and make 8 ounces of hot coffee or tea into it (a “Brew Over Ice” K-Cupis recommended). A 12 oz. cup can deal with 6 ounces of hot beverage (add half of the cup size’s volume with the hot beverage).

Remember that you can take out the drip tray to place a taller cup, or put the coffee or tea into a smaller cup and fill the hot beverage into a large cup which is filled with ice. In this case, don’t use a glass cup since it may crack or break.

Reusable Coffee Filters

As I mentioned above, the reusable filter can be available or not, checking through the product’s description. But if it is included, there is some knowledge you need to know.

Some items like the My K-Cup filter let you brew your preferred ground coffee in the machine. There are also some good third party filters available, like Ekobrew and Solofill. Some users share that they find a few grounds in their coffee when they use reusable filters. In this case, consider a reusable filter which can accept paper filter inserts .

Reusable filters are not expensive and are sold separately. Some users even buy some filters at once and use them once a week so they will never run out of filters and there is always one ready to go first thing on work mornings.

Water Filter

The products are often designed with a water filter. It’s not necessary, but you had better have on if your water has an “off” taste. The water filter has a charcoal to eliminate sulpher and other flavors, and finally give you the best tasting coffee.

Water

Keurig machine recommends you to use room temperature bottled or filtered water, especially if your water flavors like chlorine or other undesirable substances. You hadn’t better use reverse osmosis and distilled water. You can also use water which is directly extracted from the tap, but keep away from softened or overly hard water since it is high in mineral content.

No matter what kind of water you use, “scale” can also be formed inside K45 model, especially if you’re using water high in calcium and other minerals. This formation can badly affect the performance of the machine, so plan to remove it regularly.

The Elite has  a “descaling needed” indicator light, but remember that it is set within a specific period of time and reveals nothing about how much buildup is being made in your machine. So you are recommended to descale every 3-6 months.

Water Temperature

Ok, there is one issue here is that you cannot adapt the water temperature with the Keurig B40 or K45 because it is fixed at192 degrees by Keurig. People assume that 192 degree is a proper level to produce the best tasting coffee as well as other hot beverages.

Amount of Coffee  For Each Serving

As I mentioned above, the keurig k45 elite brewing system introduces two options on cup size, 8 and 10 ounces or 6 and 8 ounces, the B45 offers 2 or 3 cup sizes (8 and 10 ounces, or 6, 8 and 10 ounces), and the K45 comes with options of three cup sizes: 6, 8 or 10 ounces of coffee every cup. To identify the number of cups exactly, read the product description or box of the device.

Keurig K45 Brewing Time

It takes the Keurig Elite coffee brewer between three and four minutes to gain brewing temperature as long as it is turned on. Then, it takes no more than one minute to make a fresh cup of coffee.

Auto Shutoff

If you choose the Auto Off option, the device will automatically turn itself off after about two hours since the last cup. In contrast, if you don’t, it will be on, hot and ready, until you turn it off or unplug it.

There are hundreds keurig reviews dealing with pros when it comes to access with these amazing items, some of them include:
