When space and simplicity are important, we have to consider the best room saving brew system. Several Keurig brewers are for this kind of purpose, and they are so-called the compact or slimmest system. K-Compact® Coffee Maker
K-Compact® Coffee Maker
The K-compact is a space-saving Keurig K-Classic brewer. The K-Compact has basic options, i.e. 3 cup sizes (6, 8 and 10 ounces) and doesn’t have programmable features like temperature control or auto on, which are offered by Keurig K-Elite brewer. The most preferable part is the its size and price.
It takes about 1 minute to brew a cup of coffee. If you want to make more, you have to get out the used K-CUP and insert a new one. It’s a great choice for a single or a couple at most. But sometimes the brewed coffee has some strange plastic smell.
K-Mini® Single Serve Coffee Maker
The Keurig K-Mini is less than 5 inches wide, which is perfect for a small coffee machine in small spaces.
It can brew any cup size between 6-12oz with regular Keurig® K-Cup® pods. Comparing to K-Compact, no more strange plastic smell, but the tank inside is not removable.
