The 12 Best Keurig Single Cup Coffee Makers for 2020

I love coffee.  Some say that coffee has many health benefits while others claim that it’s the gateway to an early grave.  There are even studies on caffeine overdose. (Who knew?)

I don’t care.  At my usual intake of 2 cups every morning (sometimes 3 if I’m feeling froggy), I’m relatively sure I’m not rolling the dice in either direction.

My husband was famous for drinking any coffee, no matter how thick, old or bitter.  If he could get it down with a knife and fork, he was all in.  Not me.  Because I like my coffee black, I like to have good, fresh coffee and this is why I fell in love with Keurig.  To have a fresh cup of coffee every single time is a dream come true!

While we’re on the subject, I would like to take a few minutes and review what I consider to be the 12 best Keurig
single cup coffee makers for 2020.

Wait! Aren’t K-Cups® Bad For The Environment???

The short answer is…maybe.  Keurig® has made a commitment to make all their pods from completely recyclable materials by the end of 2020.  Even then, recycling a  K-Cup® is not for the faint of heart.

What’s the answer then?  I have used reusable coffee pods for years.  Just add your own coffee!

These plastic and mesh pods are incredibly inexpensive but I found that the mesh tends to spring a leak after a bit of use, which makes it semi-disposable (in my opinion).  Better than a single use pod for sure but I prefer this heavy duty stainless steel one. Sure it’s a bit more money but I’ve been using mine for 5 years now…and it’s still in great shape!

What are you waiting for?  Your delicious, freshly brewed, environmentally friendly is just a click away!  The only question is…which one are you going to choose?

All my best,
