My Review

I have to say that I love this thing.  Ok I'm in love with this thing!  When I found out that I was chosen to be one of the first people via Influenster to get one I was going nuts within a few minutes.  I first thought it was a joke or scam or something.  I didn't think it could be real!  Then I found all the tweets etc. about these getting shipped out and then I really started going nuts! Well the thing came I set it up. Which took about 2 minutes.  And we have been using it since it came.  

The Bad:  Only uses K Cups, you can not use your own coffee. Even if you have one of those fillable K Cup things. (one came with our old Keurig) you can't use it.  For us that is fine as it was always a mess and a hassle.

Once you use the Carafe once you will need to refill the water tank.

It tends to be on the slower side to brew a cup of coffee.  Ive noticed that from sleep mode to filling my cup is about 2-3 minutes.

Thats about it for the bad.

The Good: It has a light that we use for a nightlight for the kitchen.  I no longer have to turn on a light to see in there.

It has a Carafe.  Even if I have to refill the water tank that is still better than having to make 4 cups of coffee in the morning. I can just set it to do it for me.

Different size cups with brew strength.  I can now brew mine strong or normal.  As well as this one has a setting for Hot Coco.  My daughter really loved that.  This one will also give you hot water without having to go through all the stuff with the normal one.

The water tank you no longer have to take the lid off all the way.  Just lift the one section of the lid and pour more water in.

The touch screen is a great added bonus.  So much faster!  Also the auto brewer part for the Carafe I can't say enough good things about that.  Just set it before you go to bed and have 2-5 cups of hot coffee waiting for you in the morning.

Its easy to set up and run.  Not much to do.

Note:  Ive heard people having issues with this and k cups.  We have only had one issue with a kind that is called Fog Lifter I guess that the cups are to full for the brewer.  We called Keurig and they gave us not 1 but 2 FREE boxes to replace it and even included shipping!!  So they will help you.  the only other thing that kinda bummed me was that our coffee tea sample box only had coffee in it.  I thought it was supposed to be coffee AND TEA!!  What happened to the TEA!!!!  

Go Into This One Knowing

If you don't mind only being able to use k cups and you want to be able to brew a lot of coffee at once  then this is deff something to look into.
