Do you love Keurig® single serve coffee but also want the option to brew larger amounts with ground coffee? The new Keurig® K-Duo Essentials Single Serve & Carafe Coffee Maker is the perfect upgrade that allows you to brew coffee in a cup or carafe using ground coffee or K-Cups! This innovative coffee maker combines convenience and versatility in one and allows you to brew however you would like depending on the occasion.

Right out of the box, I loved the look of the new Keurig® K-Duo Essentials Coffee Maker. It has a modern design and is a major space saver considering it’s two coffee makers in one! It includes a 12 cup glass carafe so you can brew for a crowd if needed and a heating plate that remains hot for 2 hours. Another feature I love about this machine is the large 60 oz. single water reservoir that is shared between single serve and carafe brewing. This is a great design feature that is time saving and efficient (yay for fewer water refills!). The machine is super simple to operate and has several helpful features so you can brew the perfect cup of aromatic and flavorful coffee every time.

When brewing with the carafe, after placing a 12 cup paper filter in the filter basket and adding your desired amount of ground coffee, simply press the CUPS button and select your brew size (8, 10 or 12 cups). Brewing with the carafe has several efficient features. The Smart Start feature heats then automatically brews in one process eliminating the need to wait for the brewer to heat. It also has a Pause & Pour feature that allows for a 20 second pause mid brew so you can grab a cup without waiting for the entire brew to be done. The brewer is energy efficient and will automatically turn off 2 hours after your last brew for energy savings. To brew a single cup of coffee, you simply place your cup on the drip tray, insert desired K-Cup pod, press the OZ button, and select your brew size (8, 10 or 12 oz). Brewing is complete in about 1 minute and it’s takes about 1 more minute for it to be ready to brew an additional K-Cup pod. To save energy the brewer will automatically turn off 1 minute after your last single cup brew.

The Keurig® K-Duo Essentials Coffee Maker is an all in one product that is super convenient and affordable. It is available for purchase exclusively at Walmart for just $99.
