The Keurig K-Cup Home Brewer machine is a popular single serve coffee maker.

The machine follows the conventional Keurig K-cup machine design line, and that is a good thing. The machine is attractive to look at and it is easy to operate on a daily basis. The K-Cup home brewer is a very basic machine compared to other machines from Keurig. This is good if you are looking for a convenient way to brew coffee, but not if you prefer more advanced control options.

The drawbacks of the unit come from a lack of advanced electronics. This means that the machine cannot be programmed to specific brewing settings, doesn’t have built-in features to descale the unit automatically, and lacks other features that makes the daily use of the machine easier.

The Keurig K-Cup Home Brewer review score is 4.8 out of 10.
