The perfect cup of coffee sets your morning off to the right start, so picking a great coffee machine is essential. The popular Keurig coffee makers are a great option for coffee lovers, with dozens of K-cup coffee flavors available. You are only a coffee pod and a few buttons away from your favorite cup of joe.

What to Look for in Your Keurig

Some Keurig machines will offer different brew sizes for a larger cup of coffee. Some models are larger or smaller and might fit better on your counter, and if you’re taking one on vacation with you, a compact model would work better. Some of the larger models have high-capacity water reservoirs that don’t need to be refilled as often.

There are also programmable models which start the brew automatically in the morning, quieter models with Quiet Brew Technology, and others offer hot water brewing, a very handy feature for tea or instant soup.
