Are you looking for the Keurig with largest cup size? Are you wondering why there are so many Keurig cup sizes?
The typical Keurig coffee makers have at least 3 cup sizes , normally 6, 8 and 10 ounces. If you are buying your first Keurig coffee maker, you may wonder what does all these different cup sizes actually mean.
The different cup sizes are a great option for those who like to drink different volumes of coffee from time to time.
Another use of the different cup sizes is to vary the coffee strength. For the same K-cup, when you select the different brew cup sizes on your Keurig machine, you get anything from a watered down coffee to a very strong coffee. So if you want less watered down coffee, choose a smaller cup size. The smallest cup size available is 4 ounces.
But of course, this is not the real way to get a really strong coffee. But it’s a way to adjust coffee strength for those Keurigs without the stronger brew option.
Some Keurig models have the strong brew option, which works by slowing the flow of water through the coffee grounds. This allows better extraction of the compounds inside the coffee. The result is a stronger brewed coffee.
Keurig coffee makers may have different cup sizes. But this doesn’t mean the K-pod has different sizes. All K-pod has exactly the same size. However, the amount of ground coffee may vary depending on the brand you get. This varies from 9 to 12 grams.
And that’s for K-Pods.
However, there is a demand for a larger cup of coffee. And Keurig introduces the larger K-Mug pods, and K-Carafe pods. K-Mug pods can brew 12, 14 and 16 ounces of coffee, enough to fill a large mug. K-carafe pods can make 30 ounces of coffee, enough for 4 persons.
However, K-Mug has been discontinued.
Taking over its shoes is Keurig’s K-Cup reusable filter. This filter has 2 fill lines, one for K-cup and another travel mug brew sizes. But you have to fill it up with ground coffee. So you have to deal with messy coffee. A good thing is that this Keurig reusable filter is dishwasher safe and of course BPA-free.
The K-Carafe Pods can only be used with Keurig Plus series coffee brewers. If you like to make a carafe of coffee for your family, check out these two models, K250 and K575.
If you want to have a Keurig with most cup sizes and yet portable, Keurig K250 is the one to buy.
You still want to have a Keurig with most cup sizes. But you hate refilling the water tank especially when you are making a carafe. It makes sense to have a large water tank since you are now making more coffee at once. Keurig K575 is the one machine to buy.
Perhaps you don’t need to make a carafe for a family. You just need to make the largest K-cup. Or you simply want the Keurig with the most K-cup sizes.
The largest K-Cup size is 12 ounces. The maximum K-Cup sizes available in a Keurig is 5.
Not taking those models that can make K-carafe, the only Keurig with 5 cup sizes is Keurig K-Elite.
After K-Elite are Keurig K-Select and K-Mini Plus with 4 cup sizes.
If you like large water tank, Keurig K-elite has a comparable one as the K575. And if you like iced coffee, this is the only Keurig with iced coffee option.
If K-elite is too large for you, consider Keurig K-Select with a smaller and yet decent sized water tank.
One thing that stand outs for this Keurig K-mini Plus is that it is the smallest Keurig machine. Yes, it is even smaller or rather slimmer than K250. And it is a popular Keurig for small desks in your dorm.
