The Keurig B40 is a good all-round machine. The design follows the regular Keurig style, which means that is quite good looking. The machine is simple and easy to use, and it is known to be of robust quality. It is priced fairly at around $120, which is 20% below the average price of a single serve coffee maker.

The biggest drawback of the unit is the missing frother. This means that the machine cannot make milk-based products such as lattes and cappuccinos. The coffee quality is also of a lesser quality than coffee made on capsule machines that use high bar pressure, such as Nespresso or Nescafe Dolce Gusto. These machines make espresso-style coffee that has a better extraction of oils and flavors from the coffee beans.

The Keurig B40 review score is 5.8 out of 10.
