Keurig K Supreme Review 2021: Design & Build Quality

The Keurig K Supreme coffee maker is made of plastic, thereby it is bound to be lightweight.

But you will not find any reduction in the quality of the plastic.

Its design is very similar to the Keurig K Duo Plus coffee maker.

However, we also get to see the brewing compartment on top of that.

At the base of the coffee maker, we get to see the drip tray on which we can easily fit our coffee mug.

With the drip tray you will be able to easily place a 6 inch coffee mug while removing the drip tray increases the height where you can easily keep a 7 inch tall travel mug.

Although, I think it would have been better if there was a little more space here to keep the travel mug.

Apart from this, in this coffee maker, we will get to see a handle on the front which we can lift up to place the K cup pods.

We get to see something new, yet interesting in this.

When you look in it, you will get to see 5 needles which are usually only one.

Since it is equipped with multistream technology, extra needles have been given in it.

By lowering the handle, you will see the control panel of the Keurig K Supreme coffee maker, which houses some buttons and indication lights.

On the side of the coffee maker, we get to see the water reservoir, which can also be attached to the back side of the coffee maker.

But if you keep it on the side, you will need about just 12 inches long and 7.5 inches wide to place the coffee maker.

Which are really impressive.

You don’t need much space to keep it.

But if you are planning to keep it under the cabinet, then its total height is only 12 inches whereas after lifting its handle, you can easily fit it in any 18 inch cabinet.

Apart from that, its power cord is about 2 feet long which should be enough in my opinion.

Although I really liked the quality of the cord, we don’t get to see any kind of card storage in it which could have been an add-on if it had been provided.

In a nutshell, the Keurig K Supreme coffee maker is exquisitely designed with quality materials to deliver a superior brewing experience.

Even after lifting the handle, it remains less than 18 inches.

MultiStream Technology

The selling point of this Keurig K Supreme coffee maker is its multistream technology.

After lifting the handle up, you will get to see 5 needles which are part of this technology.

These needles pierce 5 holes in the K cup pod and spray hot water evenly to allow the ground coffee inside the K cup pod to bloom fully.

Thereby, this gives an opportunity to better extract the flavor and aroma of the coffee.

Multiple Brew Sizes

We don’t always drink the same amount of coffee.

Sometimes we want to drink less coffee and sometimes more.

Keeping this in mind, the option of multiple brew sizes has been given in Keurig K Supreme coffee maker, using which you will be able to brew coffee ranging from 6 oz to 12 oz.

Water Reservoir

The water reservoir of any coffee maker is one of its most important part.

And, if I talk about Keurig K Supreme coffee maker, apart from multistream technology, water reservoir is its second best selling point.

It is a dual position water tank which you will be able to attach on the side of the coffee maker as well as at the back which also saves space in your kitchen.

It has a total capacity of 66 oz which means you will be able to brew five 12 oz cups once the water tank is filled up.

I always use Keurig descaling solution because it does not smell at all in the coffee after descaling.
