It’s hard not to find a Keurig coffee machine on a kitchen counter these days, but for those familiar with the convenience of popping in a K-Cup to crank out a single serving of brew, it’s also frustrating when you want to make a whole pot for your friends and family.
At long last, the company introduced on Tuesday night a new brewing system that not only makes a whole carafe of coffee at once, it also learns your coffee preferences in the process.
Priced at $189, the Keurig 2.0 is the company’s first machine to let you brew multiple cups at once. You can specify the size, strength and number of cups they want at a given time, and “favorite” these preferences. So if you like strong coffee and typically prefer to make two cups at once (perhaps to put in a thermos before you leave for work in the mornings), the machine will remember this in the future, enabling you to go through your coffee routine even faster.
You can brew up to 30 ounces of coffee at once, and the Keurig 2.0 allows you to control the temperature, too.
While a traditional Keurig machine may be convenient, it’s limiting in terms of personalizing taste and size. The 2.0 version aims to give you more flexibility, both in how much you want, and exactly how you like it.
The Keurig 2.0 and the carafe packets will go on sale this fall.
