With Keurig 2.0 Brewing technology, the coffee maker brews K- cups, K- Mugs and K- Carafes with ease and perfection. It is extremely easy to use as well, with not having the need to refill the reservoir again and again due to its large capacity of 80 oz.

I have mentioned and discussed about the complete features and details of this coffee maker below. Let us check them out.


How is it Different from Other Coffee Makers?

While most of the coffee makers brew only K- Cups, this coffee maker also brews K- Mugs and K- Carafe with a similar speed and efficiency.

It also possesses a large water reservoir capacity of 80 oz, which is absent in many of the Keuirg coffee maker models, or they have a slightly lesser capacity as compared to Keurig K525 Plus. This saves you the need of not refilling it time and again.

You can also select the strength, temperature setting and the brew size required.

Along with this, it has a slightly larger color touch screen display as compared to other coffee makers.

I should also mention that this coffee maker comes with a water filter kit, which is absent in most of the Keurig models.

Is there any better option?

Keurig K525 coffee maker has almost all the features which makes it one of the ‘complete packages’. It is almost similar to other Keurig coffee makers but it sets apart from Keurig K475 coffee maker with the fact that the latter comes with 4 K- Carafe and 6 K-Cup packs, and the former with 12 K- cup pods. So if you want to consider this feature as a priority, you can choose amongst these options.
