Keurig K3500 Review [8 Key Benefits]

The Keurig brand has been innovating better equipment to make coffee in homes and at the office since 1993. They are consistently updating their own great coffee and beverage making equipment. That is why the Keurig K-3500 coffee brewer is the advanced version of the Keurig K-3000SE.

Both the K-3500 and the K-3000SE are high-volume brewing systems designed just for the office. Technology is a constant change, so if you still own the K-3000SE, your office still has a leading coffee brewer. The Keurig K-3500 brewer has some of the same internal parts and the same direct-waterline hook-up feature as its predecessor.

Keurig K3500 Review: Why I Like It?

The K-3500 promises a good cup of coffee, tea, and hot cocoa throughout the day. In other words, this Keurig is a workhorse for commercial office use. As a coffee brewer update, the Keurig K-3500 is built to withstand employees after employees using it to make coffee. You do not have to worry about the K-3500 breaking down just because it is constantly being used. I like that it is a sturdy and dependable brewing system.

1 Pods

With the K-3500, there is no need to remove any empty K-cup pods. Instead, pod handling is a hands-free experience. For example, when the brewing is completed, simply lift the hand and the pods will eject automatically into its storage compartment.

2 Water Reservoir

You no longer need to refill the water reservoir. The K-3500 water reservoir fills up to your direct-waterline fixture. Also, the internal water reservoir can be drained quickly and easily with no mess and no fuss.

3 Cups

The Keurig K-3500 commercial brewer features up to five different Keurig cup sizes: 4 oz., 6 oz., 8 oz., 10 oz., and a tall 12 oz. If you travel for business, with the K-3500, you can fold up the front drip tray to give you a large sized travel mug. Also, employees can choose their cup size and the strength of their brew in a few seconds and without waiting for the hot water to heat up.

4 Touchscreen

The clear high-res color touchscreen for the K-3500 coffee brewer does not require much efforts to operate. The user-friendly screen is easy to read and follow as it provides clear instructions to dispense hot water and for brewing.

5 Menu Controls

Since the K3500 is a commercial brewing system, it offers the management team a option to begin its operation each day by choosing the “manager” display button and entering a password. Additional menu controls include the following:

  • Language: English, French, and Spanish are the common default languages especially for the Keurig K-3500’s ability to provide a delicious single brew.
  • Units: Again, depending on your language preference, you have the option to choose measuring units like millimeters in lieu of ounces.
  • Brew Settings: We can choose the default size cup and brewing strength they require.
6 Sleep Settings

The office manager has the option to choose the number of minutes that the screensaver runs before the screen goes into sleep mode. The uniqueness of the screensaver for the K-3500 includes the ability to choose screensaver images from a pre-programmed file, including the length of time the screensaver runs.

7 Brewing History

In case the office accountant would like to know how often the Keurig K-3500 brews coffee (not really), the K-3500 features a display that shows the number of brews it has performed, both by size and total.

8 Energy Saving For High Altitude

In case you live and work in high-altitude states like Colorado or Wyoming, the Keurig K-3500 brewing system will go into energy-saving mode. When this Keurig has been programmed with its high altitude settings , it instinctively lowers the brewing temperature to save energy when the altitude is greater than 5,000 feet. I find this innovation quite amazing!

How to Brew with A Keurig K3500

Brewing your coffee is the main reason to thoroughly enjoy the Keurig K-3500. For this reason, let’s walk through how easy it is to make coffee, cup after cup:

  1. Turn the K-3500 brewer on with the power switch located on the back of the machine at the bottom left-hand side.
  2. Look at the high-definition touchscreen located on the top left side. It will ask you to fill the reservoir with hot water. The screen will note “brewer is heating.”
  3. Place a coffee pod in the K-cup pod holder. Lower the handle to close the lid.
  4. Select your brew size and strength. The Keurig K-3500 offers brewing strengths. If you need a bold cup of coffee, then press the “strong” button.
  5. Place the cup or mug size (4 ounces to 12 ounces) on the drip tray plate to receive your cup of gold. If someone is waiting to get their coffee fix, there is no waiting, just place your cup or mug down and press the brew button.

 

Who Is the Keurig K-3500 Customer?

If your office is located in your home, the single serve commercial Keurig K-3500 coffee brewing system with hot water for tea or cocoa is the perfect beverage maker for you. Otherwise, the K-3500 is more purposefully designed to be used in a small busy business with over 20 employees. The Keurig K-3500 and its rapid single cup brewer will help to keep employees energized, healthy, and well hydrated.

 

Keurig K-3500 Shortcomings

Can’t make specialty drinks

If your office staff is looking to make lattes or cappuccinos, the Keurig K-3500 is not the brewing system for your business. I admit that I miss its inability to make specialty drinks.

Cost

The Keurig K-3500 cost is between $1,500 and $2,000. This innovative brewing system is a good investment, only if your employees drink more than one cup of coffee a day.

 

Is the Keurig K-3500 Right for Your Office?

Firstly, all Keurig coffee makers offer a one-year warranty and is certified. Why is this important to a business? A warranty and certification are always a good idea for the bottom line of any business. The K-3500 is UL and NSF certified for commercial use. This means that for warranty’s sake, the K-3500 has been tested and designed to be a safe commercial food service appliance.
