Today I will be reviewing the brand new Keurig 2.0 K350! I received this product complimentary of Influenster to test and review.
So let’s start from the beginning: I came home to this baby on my doorstep and immediately had to open it up and try it. Upon opening the box I immediately noticed that it was damn near already put together. All I had to do was remove everything out of the box, remove the plastic wrap and tape, and put the filter together. The filter was insanely easy: all I had to do was soak the charcoal filter for 5 minutes and then insert it into the tube and set the date, which will remind me when to change it. Then I had to put the filter into the water tank. I inserted the tray under the spout and plugged it in. Super easy!
Then I took a closer look at the machine itself and noticed the touch screen. You can imagine my surprise. I mean, it’s a TOUCH SCREEN! How cool is that? I turn it on and a light turns on the illuminates the water tank. A very calm notification informs me to fill the water tank, which is easily accessible through a pop off lid. I put three big cups of water in and the screen then asks what I want to do next. I begin going through the options and I can set the reminder to notify me when the filter needs to be changed. I can also set the language, and a few other super cool options.
After all this anticipation I had to try it out. Luckily I was also provided with 6 K Cups, 5 different types of coffee and one black tea as well as 4 super big K Cup coffee flavors for the carafe. Oh, did I forget to the mention that it comes with a carafe?! So not only can this Keurig brew me a delicious cup of coffee when I’m home alone, but it can also provide coffee for those family filled moments that require a hot cup of delicious caffeine for everyone in the house! I had read on other reviews that people had noticed a plasticky taste when they just ran coffee through immediately, so I opened the top and closed it again. The screen asked me if I would like to brew a cup of hot water, so I touched “Yes”. It asked me the size and I touched 8 oz.
I didn’t have great luck with my previous Keurig. It was a First Gen Keurig that was handed down used by my Mother in Law and every cup tasted off. It just wasn’t good no matter what I cleaned it with or what flavor I used I didn’t like it. So I was a little apprehensive about this cup of coffee, but I have to admit it smelled so good.
So I take my first sip and it was AMAZING! I was so impressed with this Keurig 2.0 K350.
So here is my over all review: Would I pay full price for this? Absolutely not! There is no way in hell I would ever pay over $100 for a coffee maker. I’m cheap and while I love my caffeine, I love my money more. I’m not positive the exact number on this price tag, but let’s just say I paid $10 for my old coffee maker and I thought that was a little much. BUT… if you can find this on sale, BUY IT BUY IT BUY IT!!!! However, as I said before, I’m cheap. If you love coffee, and I mean like connoisseur of coffee, then buy this machine. The flavor is great, the time-saving is incredible, and the ease of use is life changing!
So, in a nut shell, don’t pay full price, but if you can find this on sale you need to buy it and that’s the bottom line.
