Keurig K575 Single Serve Coffee maker Review

The Keurig K575 is among the most sought single serve coffeemakers from this manufacturer. It’s not any difficult to figure out why most coffee lovers like it so much even at its seemingly high asking price.

One thing that we can’t deny about this machine is its impressive design. Keurig offers you a choice of 3 colors that might go perfectly well with your kitchen or office space aesthetics: platinum, brushed slate, and brushed silver.

To complement its contemporary design, the K575 single serve coffee maker also replaces the buttons that most of its low-end siblings and other alternatives from competitor brands feature on their control panel. Instead, this beast utilizes a large 2.8 inch touch screen for intuitive control settings.

The K575 uses Keurig’s 2.0 brewing system that recognizes the lids of different k-cups and k-carafe pods to let you enjoy a piping hot cup of java anytime. However, do note that this machine only accepts k-cups made after 2014.

This single cup coffeemaker allows multiple brew sizes depending on your coffee needs. For instance, it can accommodate 4, 6, 8, 10, and 12oz using compatible K-cups. If you need more coffee, then you can use the K-Carafe pack to brew into a 22, 26, or 30oz carafe.

What makes this possible is the super large 80oz water reservoir that this machine uses. This water tank allows you to brew upwards of 10 cups before the need to refill.

On the same note, we appreciate that the reservoir is removable. So, you won’t be lugging the entire unit to the sink for refilling.

Does it allow customization?

Well, I bet this is where the Keurig K575 takes the lead. Besides allowing you to enjoy over 400 varieties from up to 75 brands, this machine also lets you regulate the strength of your poison to your liking. You also have 5 temperature settings to play around with.

The K575 is also pretty much accommodating especially if it will be used by several people. Its ability to offer hot water for other beverages (think of hot cocoa, chocolate, and chai tea) makes it quite versatile.

The package also comes with 2 water filters and a water filter handle to ensure that the water used does not interfere with the aroma of the end product.
