Quick: Name the most popular brand when it comes to single-serve coffee makers. We’d be willing to bet that you knew to say Keurig. The company is widely credited with popularizing single-serving coffee makers (and, of course, inventing K-Cups, 100 percent of which will be recyclable by the end of this year) and, while their machines aren’t for everyone, people who are on Team Keurig are really on Team Keurig. For proof, let’s take a look at the Keurig K-Classic Coffee Maker. It’s the bestselling machine of all single-serve coffee makers on Amazon. On top of that, it has more than 28,000 five-star reviews. That’s a lot of happy customers, so we couldn’t help but notice.

Buy: Keurig K-Classic Coffee Maker, $89.99

The machine brews coffee in various sizes (six, eight, and 10 ounces) and has a 48-ounce water reservoir, which means it can brew at least six cups of coffee before it needs to be refilled. It’s got a simple, easy-to-use interface and an auto-off feature that switches the machine off after it’s been idle for two hours.

What do satisfied shoppers like the most? Let’s take a look at some of the five-star reviews.

“I like that you can choose different size cups to make, as I may not want a pot of coffee but may want a little more than just the eight-ounce cup. I like the size of the water reservoir and also that it has a charcoal filter in the reservoir. It heats the water fast and you have a fresh hot cup of coffee ready to enjoy. I also like that coffee is not the only thing this can be used for. I can brew a cup of tea or make a nice hot cup of hot chocolate! This is very useful! I personally don’t think the size is too large on my counter top. This is definitely worth it. If I had to go back, I would definitely purchase again.”

“I was looking for a Keurig type machine, but I didn’t want to spend too much. This is affordable, compared to the other models, and it’s nothing fancy, but it does the trick! It gives me great coffee, and is really easy to use. It also comes with cleaning directions, because we know that these things can get gross! Highly recommend if you are looking for a basic, affordable version of the Keurig.”

“My Keurig, how do I love thee? I am the only coffee drinker in the house so I need a single-serve coffee maker that is easy, fast, and flavorful. It’s been four months since I purchased my Keurig and it has improved my mornings in so many ways. It is so easy to use and takes about two minutes from start to finish. Before my Keurig, I was purchasing a coffee daily. I would feel rushed every morning to leave the house, buy coffee, and arrive to work on time. On these morning coffee runs, I would often spend between $5 and $10 dollars because my daughters would usually grab a croissant or something as well. Now, I am spending less than 50 cents per cup. I look forward to the smell of freshly brewed coffee in the morning and now I arrive at work early every day and get a head start.”
