I took my time, almost all of it actually, to use this product before writing my review. In fact, I only have until October 13, 2014 to complete my review. I wanted to be sure that I took careful note of what I liked and did not like before sitting down to critique this product. Now, many of my fellow coffee lovers will quickly point out the one drawback of this machine. This new version of the Keurig does not allow you to use anything other than Keurig branded pods. You have to purchase pods with the Keurig branded logo on the box.
The upside is that the flavor still has the same high quality that we have grown to expect from a Keurig. It has an easy to use touch screen that allows you to change the color of the backlight and the LCD display. You can also eaily adjust the setting for Auto On/Off, Strength of the Brew, and the Size of Each Cup.
The only other negative thing about this brewer is the cost of the machine itself and the K-carafe pods which I cannot yet purchase in stores. They retail on the Keurig site for $12.99 for a package of 8 pods. Granted, they make and entire carafe but it seems pretty pricey to me.
