When it comes to coffee, that coveted morning brew isn’t necessarily a one-cup-fits-all type of situation. Sometimes you wake up and want a super-strong jolt. Other times you might want hazelnut coffee. And say you have friends coming over for coffee talk: you’ll want an entire carafe of the good stuff.
Enter the Keurig K-Duo Essentials Coffee Maker ($79). This powerhouse just about guarantees good mornings. Why? It offers options. You can brew a carafe or a single cup, using either your favorite grounds or K-cup pods (choose from 75 brands like Starbucks, Peets and Dunkin’ Donuts). Need it to go? It fits travel mugs up to 7 inches high.
And if you’re brewing a carafe and just can’t wait for your caffeine kick, simply pause the machine to sneak in a cup.
No need to fill multiple water chambers either: the 60-ounce reservoir is shared between the single serve and carafe for a blissfully simple way to fuel up. Thanks to this dynamic duo, customers just can’t get enough:
“The epitome of convenience,” says a fan. “I've recently been drinking more coffee since I've been forgoing sodas, and now I've definitely upped my coffee game with this Keurig. I like my Donut Shop flavor in the morning and my Green Mountain in the evenings, but now I can even brew grounds. How great is that?! I tried the Green Mountain Columbia Select and have decided that's my new weekend brew. Of course, there's always single cup hot chocolate too. Any serving size you might want at the touch of a finger. It also looks nice, is easy to wipe down, and doesn't take up as much counter space as I had expected. Definitely recommend.”
“This is a great combination coffee machine,” says another happy customer. “My husband likes to make pots of coffee and I like to make single coffees for iced coffee. Now I am able to do that at the same time and we have no arguments over who gets to go first lol. The reservoir holds an amazing 12 cups of water which is fantastic because my husband doesn't need 12 cups leaving me plenty of cups here and there throughout the day without having to fill up the water tank again until that night for the next day. I also like that you can use regular coffee grounds for the pot of coffee. This is a great function for the amount you brew and making it very cost-effective. Plus you can have any coffee you like without being limited to just pods. Aesthetically it looks gorgeous on the counter and takes up less space than two machines together. This is truly an impressive machine. I had a get together over the weekend and everyone loved it. It was a hit!”
