Holiday Gift Guide: Keurig 2.0 K550 #HelloKeurig

Keurig 2.0

Christmas is right around the corner, and with the Keurig 2.0, coffee lovers and get the ultimate gift this year!  It’s time to “Say Hello to Keurig 2.0”.  This new system has been a very welcome addition to our home.  We have always loved our Keurig systems, the only complaint for my husband was that, it only made one cup at a time.  Which isn’t a make it or break it deal, but he likes to refill instantly.  So, when I was approached to check out the Keurig 2.0, that brews both a cup and a carafe, I know this was just the answer he was looking for!

Brew a cup

Fact one, now that the cold is coming in, I like to start my day with something hot.   Fact two, I don’t usually have time to sit and drink an entire cup of coffee so the single cup works great for me.  Fact three, my husband wants more than one cup without having to wait to brew another.  That is exactly why the Keurig 2.0 is perfect for us.

If you are like me and just want the single cup option, you have the choice between a 4 oz., 6 oz., 8 oz., or 10 oz. size! Not only that, when you go to brew, there is an option to make your coffee on the strong side! Again, this is perfect for my husband who, unlike me, does not do the frufru coffee, he likes it strong and black! We’ve had the Keurig K550 2.0 Brewer
for about a month, and we have definitely gotten our use out of it! Okay, we all know Keurig is known for their single cup so now, let me introduce you to the carafe side of the Keurig 2.0

A carafe of coffee

This, to us, is the best part of the Keurig K550 2.0 Brewer.  The ability to make a 4-cup carafe with the same ease as making a single cup.  The only difference is, instead of choosing cup sizes you choose the carafe size you want, and the k-cups are different too.

Just like with the single cup, you put the carafe k-cup into the slot, close, and pick your size carafe!  I love the touch screen on the Keurig 2.0.   After a few simply touches of the screen, you are on your way to enjoying a carafe of coffee.

You can also click the little heart, to add the brew settings to your favorites area.  So you don’t have to go through the whole process each time, simply pick the favorite setting and you are ready to go.  Even though I am more of a single cup kind of gal, I do love the carafe!  On days I have a lot to do, I can make a carafe and bring it to my desk, the insulated carafe keeps the coffee warm, so I can refill as needed while I work!

The Keurig 2.0 K550 Brewing System includes a Keurig™ Carafe, a 2.0 Water Filter Starter Kit with one filter, and K-Cup® and K-Carafe™ packs to get you started.

A few more things to know about the Keurig 2.0 K550:

* It has an 80 ounce reservoir
* Brewer Maintenance Alerts help you make sure your brewer stays in tip top shape
* Fun illuminated reservoir colors, changeable wall-paper colors, and a night light, are a few fun touches on this brewer.
* Hot Water On Demand function is great for tea steeping or hot cocoa packets.
* It has an auto on/off, auto brew K-Carafe, a customizable clock, and over 250 varieties from over 40 brands so you can get almost anything to drink!
* You MUST use Keurig brand K-cups, it will not work with other brands, older k-cups, or the re-usable my K-cup (that was the only disappointment for us).
* Pods are color coded, so it knows if you want hot, iced, a carafe, a single cup, when you put the pod in. Which is awesome, because it means less thinking for me.

The Keurig 2.0 is a great addition to your home for the holidays when you are hosting friends and family. Get two carafes on hand and make 4 cups at a time to keep the coffee coming, but also with the single cup option for those who want to choose their own flavor. It’s also a great gift idea for college students, a great addition to an office, or just a great gift for the coffee lovers in your life.
