Keurig B130 Hotel Brewer Arrives for Review
We've had the Keurig B130 in for a review for quite awhile, but we really wanted some quality time to spend with the B130 after the busy holiday season. We also didn't want to confuse new single serve coffee drinkers they could actually purchase the Keurig B130 - it's only available to hotels or similar businesses that want to offer the use of a single cup K Cup brewer to guests.
The big difference of the Keurig B130 - it does not have a water reservoir per se - it does have the ability for you to add one cup of water at time, and then make a cup of single serve coffee. It also features instructions on the brewer on how to make a cup of single serve coffee using a K Cup.
So far - we really love the footprint and wonder why such a small K Cup maker might not be perfect for your camp, camping, travel trailer, or at the office on your desk. We can imagine such a brewer in our non-commercial single serve coffee lives. Who knows what the future will bring.
We'll have full pictures and video very soon.
Looking for a Keurig brewer for your home? We recommend the Keurig Elite B40 Brewer, Keurig B50, Keurig Special Edition Ultra Elite B60, Keurig B70 Brewer, and the Breville BKC600XL Gourmet Single Cup Brewer.

Suz & Jennie, you can purchase the B130 from Office Depot, if you have a home business or own a business or know someone that owns a business and would be willing to place the order for you with your credit card for about $70
I used one in a hotel this past weekend and it's not only beautifully designed from an aesthetics standpoint; but, beautifully designed from a practical standpoint.
It literally walks you through the process of making a cup of coffee or tea. It was wonderful to have a nice CLEAN coffee brewer that could also brew tea without a residual coffee taste. This is a winner for travelers and I'll join the chorus hoping to see a similar consumer product soon. I can see this in individual offices where the company or government agency does not provide coffee service. Great product!!!
I know what the future will bring! (a home model!)
I have this machine, and it's pretty great. I have a couple of issues with it:
1. The temperature is not hot enough. I'll explore further to see if there is an adjustment.
2. Sometimes, you have to open and close the top a couple times to get it to brew. You really have to do it in order or you'll go thirsty.
3. Forget about using a MyK-cup device. The basket is redesigned and it won't work.
