Or, if you're like me in the morning, one of each. the price is fair at about $150 at Target, for basically two machines. However, you'll only pay about $99 at Walmart for pretty much the same thing.

Our NEW Fave in the Top 10 K Cup Brewers!

Right, so I wrote the article above a couple years ago. A lot has occurred in said time.
Just under 2000 reads of this article later the site went offline for about 6 months. I saved all my old articles, like this one, and have been moving them to the site 10 at a time. Let's face it, when you work a way full time job, you have to pace yourselves with your pastimes. Over the months that Delightful Coffee was offline, I purchased a new K-Cup brewer for the office at my day job. Basically it was a gift to the office. Why drink warmed over old coffee from a regular brewer when you can have near instant goodness! The word Instant is important here. My top pick in the Top 10 K Cup is:

Instant Solo Single Serve Coffee Maker

top 10 best k cup brewers

From the Makers of Instant Pot, this is a K-Cup Pod compatible brewer. It includes reusable coffee pod & bold setting, Brew 8 to 12oz., 40oz. Water Reservoir. The one I got was red. It was a Christmas gift, after all. I got it on Amazon.

What do I like about this k cup brewer?

This cost me only $79 at Amazon.
It's small, does not take up a lot of counter space.
The machine is relatively fast, more on that later.
Comes with a reusable k cup you can put your own coffee into.
It brews a full measure as advertised. See, my home Keurig, well, sometimes it shorts the cups for no darned reason.

What I don't like

The 40 oz reservoir is a bit small.
The "start to brew" time is a little slow.

At this website they offer a totally free Keurig machine. Beware, however, as a "Sign Up" box forces you to become a member and probably receive newsletters forever in order to view the deal. As a result, you have no idea if the deal is still valid. You have to text a number to someone. Pass.
