After winning the battle against the Keurig K55, it was time for the Keurig K250 to fully shine in its own separate review.
Check out this coffee maker from top to bottom and try to find its flaws. We already did this, and we failed— this Keurig is undoubtedly one of the most perfect Keurig coffee makers that Keurig has ever invented! It is definitely not easy to be one of the best Keurig brewers, but when you have as many as 10 brew sizes under your sleeve (or funnel in this case), your features simply make you be the best one!
Then, if you also have a good design that makes you be big enough to not violate someone’s kitchen space and slim enough to still show off your beauty, you are a true hit. We’re starting to talk about the K250 as if it is alive, and trust us, you will too after you realize how lively and featuresque this coffee maker is. Are you ready for our Keurig 2.0 K250 review?

Slender, to fit a crowded kitchen counter
With 10 brew settings, you can prepare as little or as much coffee as you want
A black-and-white display for no eye pain caused by a flashy display in the early morning
The hot water option lets you get creative with beverages different from coffee throughout the day
The water tank is compact for many, but small for some as well
From 4-ounce cups to a 30-ounce carafe
And everything in between too! No to limits, no to restrictions, and no to choosing the coffee maker that will give you just a little bit more than other coffee makers. The K250 lets you make a free, wholehearted choice where you not only get most of the brew sizes, but literally all of them! Your life as a coffee lover is not only about the coffee you like most of the time, but about celebrating all your coffee quirks, ideas, and moods!
Getting an average coffee maker that can brew a size or two is fine, but you know it very well that that’s not all you want. More than that, it is not all you need either. What will happen during those days when 4 ounces of strong coffee is the only thing that can turn a grumpy morning into a productive one? What will happen when you want a long, 14-ounce coffee as you’re watching the long sunset? How are you going to feel the next time you have guests over and you’re stuck in the kitchen, brewing cup after cup of coffee for 7 people instead of enjoying their company and hanging out with them? We bet you’ll wish you had a carafe to brew 26 or 30 ounces of coffee at once!
The Keurig K250 will have the right brew offer in each one of these situations and many other situations as well. This Keurig 2.0 coffee maker celebrates the dynamics of life as much as you do and it, therefore, supports you.
The K250 doesn’t stop with the many brew sizes; instead, it brings even more interesting features, including the highly-demanded strength control.
Leading you to the Strong setting is the 2″ black and white LCD display. As soon as you see the Strong option next to the brew sizes, you’ll only need to gently press on the screen to choose it. If you don’t want to have your coffee stronger, that’s okay— you can skip this setting.If anyone else in your household is in the mood for a more intense flavor, however, they can still brew stronger coffee.
We cannot emphasize enough the vast application that the strength control setting has in combination with the 11 brew sizes. Here is one example, however: in a family of four where three members want to have their 10-ounce coffee strong and one member prefers to have a milder coffee, you can brew a strong 30-ounce carafe and then a regular 8-ounce cup. Obviously, this a very applicable setting, no matter what the coffee dilemma is based at.
A reasonably-sized tank
The 40-ounce tank of the K250 is here to serve you well while brewing smaller, larger, or very large coffee sizes.
This removable tank sits in the back of the coffee maker, safe from kitchen tools accidentally bumping into it and saving more space for other important kitchen accessories. It is a compact and lightweight component of the coffee maker, which is especially important because you will be taking it in and out of the K250 more frequently than the rest of the coffee maker’s components.
This is a good opportunity to also mention that the drip tray of the K250 is removable and easy to handle as well, which, again, is a very important condition for you to be able to have an easy time with your Keurig.
We covered the brew sizes and the strength control, and it’s time to talk about the drinks.
With the menu of the K250 you can make a lovely choice between hundreds of coffee varieties that come to you in a K-Cup, K-Mug, or in a K-Carafe pod. You get to choose between complex coffee flavors, peculiar undertones, and many different brands that support the convenience of the K-pods. Other than that, you’ll also have a large tea choice, the pleasure to have an occasional (or a regular) hot cocoa treat, and some other goodies that will quench any thirst. Finally, with hot water on demand, you can quickly have that cup of hot water for a dish that you’re trying to make or maybe for a delicious oatmeal.
The ultimate moment with the colors
Strawberry, turquoise, black, white, and more— the K250 comes to your house the way you want it to look. Our personal favorite is the strawberry because of the nice shine the coffee maker has when in this color. There is a color for every coffee lover, though: for those who like a fun coffee maker, for the elegance seekers, for people who are into uniqueness, and for the ones who like the traditional Keurig black.
