Coffee is the world’s most popular hot beverage. This slightly acidic tasting drink which originated in Ethiopia has been a popular drink in western society since the 1600s although only the upper echelons of society could afford to drink it at all, and only the very wealthiest could afford to drink it with any regularity. Today, coffee is grown in many different countries, and people all over the world can afford to drink this delicious brew.
Keurig Brewers have been around since 1992 and are based in Reading, Massachusetts. They became a subsidiary of the renowned Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, under whose auspice they remain today.
Keurig One Cup Coffee Makers work using the innovative K-Cup System, also developed by Keurig Brewers. This K-Cup system consists of a disposable single serving already prepared “K-Cup” that can be fitted into your machine each time you wish to make a hot drink. Keurig have teamed up with a host of other hot drink providers to give you the ultimate experience in hot drinks. K-Cups are not only available with different brands of coffee, but also many different teas, and hot chocolate. You can also use the K-Cup to make delicious iced coffee or tea. There are different models available so do some research to learn which one is the best Keurig coffee maker.
Keurig brewers have also teamed up with other manufacturers of small household appliances to create different one cup brewers. For example, we get the Cuisinart Keurig Coffee Maker which works the same way as the original Keurig One Cup Coffee Maker.
To make a delicious hot drink using the Keurig One Cup Coffee Maker is as easy as 1, 2, 3:
1. Make sure that the water reservoir has been filled.
2. Insert your chosen K-Cup into the machine.
3. Place your mug on the drip tray below the spout and press go. The machine uses a spray nozzle to pierce the seal at the top of the K-Cup. Simultaneously, the bottom of the container is pierced using a discharge nozzle. Then the machine forces the hot water into the K-Cup, through the paper filter inside, out the bottom of the container and into the waiting mug below. Keurig One Cup Coffee makers are primarily designed for home use, although there are a few larger models that are designed to be used in a large office environment.
The main differences between the two model types include the fact that the industrial models can be connected to a water supply and thus refill their own water reservoirs, as well as the fact that with the industrial models, you don’t have to manually remove the used K-Cup as the machine will do it for you.
