Do Keurig Machines Make Good Coffee?

Almost every year Keurig comes out with a new selection of coffee makers that are supposed to be better than the older versions. Additionally many non-Keurig brands come out with new k-cup coffee makers all the time – there are so many machines to choose from and they are all priced so differently but the question I want to address today is not which machine to buy or use but whether or not any of the Keurig machines actually make good coffee.

Before I delve into the nitty-gritty I want to summarize this entire article right here and right now.

Keurig coffee makers make a version of drip coffee that is usually acceptable but not great. All k-cups are filled with pre-ground coffee which is portioned for cups sizes that are smaller then most people want to drink from. The average person brews a watered down 10-ounce cup of coffee in a Keurig machine with water that flows through the grind too fast and that isn’t hot enough to brew a full bodied cup of coffee.

However, even with all that said, most people can brew good tasting coffee from a Keurig machine if they want to – the problem is most people don’t care to take the extra steps, don’t know what extra steps to take, or would rather brew good coffee through different brewing methods.

If you want to make good coffee from your Keurig machine… or you want to buy a Keurig machine that can make great coffee then let’s start with this short video I made to summarize the topic before we get to the action steps found lower on this page.


Now lets look at your options for brewing better coffee with a K-cup coffee maker.
