The Keurig B40 is a 1500-watt single cup coffee brewer. The unit can make a fresh cup of coffee, hot cocoa, or tea in approximately a minute. You also won’t have to wait long for your cup as the machine is ready to brew less than three minutes after being turned on. You can find the Keurig B40 for an average price of $100. Let’s take a look at some of the features offered by this coffee brewer.
What’s So Special About It?
The Keurig B40 is equipped with a 48-ounce water tank that can easily be removed. The unit offers two brewing size options including 9 1/4 and 7 1/4 ounces, so the unit can make up to five brews without needing to be refilled. Also, the Keurig B40 can accommodate both travel-sized and standard mugs.
The Keurig B40 coffee brewer uses K-Cups so you don’t have to worry about grinding your own beans. These K-Cups are convenient to use as they provide the ideal amount of tea or coffee to brew one serving. You can buy these K-cups in over 80 varieties of tea and coffee in packs of 18. You may not like the fact that you will have to spend a lot of money over the life of the machine to buy these K-Cups. However, you are provided with a pack of 18 K-Cups of different varieties when you purchase the brewer.
Another useful feature is the ability to program the Keurig B40. You can adjust the volume of water used to brew the coffee to change the cup size and intensity of the brew. However, you can’t adjust the brewing temperature of the Keurig B40. The water used to brew the coffee heats up to approximately 192 degrees Fahrenheit. The unit will automatically shut off after two hours, but you can turn this feature on and off whenever you want.
The Keurig B40 features an indicator light to alert you to refill the water tank. There is also a descale indicator which is useful when using the machine over long periods of time. The Keurig B40 is also equipped with a removable drip tray that is safe to clean in the dishwasher.
Drinkjavazen, which is one of my favorite coffee review websites, named the Keurig B40 as one of the best keurig’s for college students, because its small, compact and gets the job done properly!
