Keurig K-Mini Coffee Maker | Best Coffee Maker Under $100?

In this video I am reviewing the Keurig K-Mini Coffee Machine.

The Keurig K-Mini Coffee machine comes with a 12oz non-removable water reservoir and has one single needle entry point.

If you want to check out how much one of these would cost or what the exact specifications are you can check them out using the links below:

The model is a couple of years old from the date I made this video however it seems to be fairly popular and so I wanted to review it and test it out for myself.

You can’t remove the water reservoir on the Keurig K-Mini but you can on the Keurig K-Mini Plus model. Since you only add fresh water to the reservoir every time based on the amount of coffee you would like to drink, there are no extra buttons to push. Just fill and press the brew button.

Unfortunately, the Keurig K-Mini takes fairly long to brew a cup of coffee when compared to one of the newer models like the Keurig K-Supreme or the most recent compact model, the Keurig K-Express.

Watch my video for K-Express here:

Watch my videos for K-Supreme Plus here:

The Keurig K-Mini takes you through a couple of steps. First, you add the water the coffee machine with drain the water reservoir into the coffee maker and then it will take several minutes for the machine to warm up and start heating the water, once the water is heated then it will start to dispense the hot water.

The Keurig K-Mini is noisy when compared to the newer models, so it shows that Keurig has definitely improved on their newer models going forward with both speed and sound.

It takes 81 seconds to brew a small 6 oz and 2 minutes 12 seconds to brew a large 12 oz cup of coffee from start to finish.

Overall, I would say that this has to be one of the fewest best single coffee makers under $100.

  1. This is a "do not buy"!! I received one as a gift a couple weeks ago. Made two cups a day for 3 days, then it quit pumping. Tried everything, even adding another couple cups of water which ended up coming out the bottom. Contacted Keuring, nice people. They sent me a new one the other day. This morning, after 2 test runs to make sure all was clean, and working properly, I tried to brew a cup of coffee. Dripped about a thimble full, then it just sat there running, but not dispensing. Same problem as last time. Will send this one back and go back to my old stainless steel percolator which hasn't let me down in over 30 years!

  2. I originally intended to purchase a K-Mini coffee maker at Walmart, but I ended up choosing the Ultima Cosa espresso maker with an integrated grinder for just $259. Coffee bean are a lot cheaper than the K-cup.

  3. This is my second Keurig Coffee Brewer. The first one lasted 6 years. It worked beautifully until the day it didn't. It was hard to go back to the drip coffee for a couple of days while I waited on my Keurig to get here. There is a huge difference in the taste. Keurig makes a really good cup of coffee. This new one is a little different from my old one. I find putting the water filter in was easier than on the old one. Attaching the water reservoir was also a little different but once I figured it out, it too was easier. This new one has the auto off feature but is not programmable like the old one. Only three cup sizes instead of four. The odd thing for me was how much lighter in weight this one is compared to my old one. More plastic and much less metal in the construction of this one. The price is so much less than the original Keurig that I bought and the coffee tastes the same so all in all I am satisfied.

  4. Fuck this $100 machine, go buy a $5 coffee funnel and splurge on a nice tea pot, You will thank me later. So much easier to clean and use. This machine doesn't even full my coffee mug

  5. Possibly the best review of a product I’ve ever seen. Mine just arrived. It’s a backup to my AeroPress for when I need to go out quickly and don’t have time to grind and brew. The only down side for me seems to be the brew temp but we’ll see. I normally do 195 degrees. 167 seems a little to cool.

  6. I just bought one…awaiting for Amazon to deliver. First time Keurig owner – I bought it because of the size (kitchen real estate is at a prime – and don't like a lot of 'things' all over the counter. I agree, now since viewing this review, about not being able to properly clean the water tank – can't remove. I got it for $60
