Review: Keurig B130 Single Serve Coffee Maker for Hotels and Small Businesses

Review from Single Serve Coffee.com - Coffee Pod Reviews

b130brewer.jpg

The Keurig B130 is the most interesting Keurig single serve coffee maker we've reviewed to date. Right up front we want to make sure you know - the Keurig B130 is only available to hotels or similar businesses that want to offer the use of a single cup K Cup brewer to guests, and that's what makes it the most interesting. Getting rid of those terrible small coffee pots in hotels across the country, and having a perfect cup of single serve coffee simple thrills us.

The design is also really interesting. This Keurig brewer is the smallest Keurig available, and the footprint alone makes it perfect for your camp, camping, travel trailer, or at the office on your desk. That's if Keurig ever releases this brewer to the general public and not just hotels.

Detailed Features of the Keurig B130

  • Small and elegant design to fit in nearly any in-room location
  • "How-to" instruction graphics on brewer
  • Brews one cup at a time-no water left in the brewer
  • Cup sensor prevents brewing without a cup in place
  • Auto off after each brew provides power efficiency
  • Removable drip tray and durable design
  • Easy cleaning and maintenance
  • No glass pots to clean, break or crack

Press to open begins the process of making a cup of single serve coffee.

Making a cup is pretty straight forward. You simply push the button on the top to open, then insert a K Cup - then closing the brewer opens the water chamber. You next take your coffee cup full of water and pour it in. Next you place your cup on the brewer, and press brew. This heats up the brewer and in about 1 minute or so you'll have a cup of single serve coffee.

Conclusions

It's definitely not as fast as Keurig home brewers, because it's heating up the water every time, but this is a tradeoff. We also noticed the brew temp tends to be in the 178 F range, instead of the home brewer's higher 192F. And the main reason the brewer doesn't have a reservoir? What if a guest doesn't stay there for a few days or a week? Not so fresh water. By having the water always used for each cup, the brewer will stay fresh.

We would really like to see this brewer in any hotel we stay at, and think Keurig should make a small brewer like this available for people who want to take one camping, or to have at their desk around the office. It probably won't happen, but we really do like the Keurig B130.

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.

I had the keurig platinum sp. edition and had alot of problems, I returned it and recieved a new one same model and had the same problems. It seems to not want to run the water through and brew, it's like it is clogged but is not, so I returned it also and now have the keurig office pro and I love it ,it's great and makes the coffee quickly and very hot. I have a cousin in N.Y. who is having the same issue with her platinum, I hope this is just an isolated few..? I am very happy with my coffee maker, thank you. colleen from ca.

I've got one. During my tests (posted in the forum)I found the water brewing temp to be less than the home brewer as well.
It really is well built, and I'll bet there will be a home version in the future.
