Keurig Coffee Maker; K-Classic-Overview

The Keurig K-Classic Coffee Maker is the most classic, of course, as the name describes it, and a basic brewer that is suitable for all. It has a fancy side-line button, and the opposite of this is a removable water reservoir. In between is a handle that smoothly lifts, and you can insert your k-cup pod into it. 

A large reservoir can store water up to 48 ounces which is helpful when you are brewing servings for gathering. It minimizes the takes to refill the reservoir. While talking of this reservoir, another cool feature it has its removability. You can slip it right up the reservoir and bring it to the faucet to refill instead of filling a jug and pour into the reservoir.

Moving on, you will see a fancy line of buttons with some light beside them. You can select brewing settings. Three brew cup sizes ranging from 8 oz, 10 oz, to 12 oz are included. An auto-off feature is also included in this brewer.

Indicators lights of descaling and water warming are also available. The light turns on when the respective functions are in working. It is a supportive function of the machine because it reminds you of the perfect time for descaling and when the water is warm enough for brewing. 

The pod holder works for brewing from the k-cup pod and my k-cup universal reusable coffee filter. Either insert coffee grounds in the k-cup reusable filter or the k-cup pod of your favorite brand and flavor for brewing. The brewing process takes a minute, and an instant cup of hot, fresh joe will be served in no time.
