Review: Mr. Coffee BVMC-KG1 K-Cup Single Serve Brewing System
The Mr. Coffee BVMC-KG1 Single Serve Brewing System was released this past Fall, and we've just spent the last 3 weeks using it as our main K-Cup brewer. Like the Keurig Mini Plus, this is a pourover model allowing you to get one single serve coffee mug's worth of water and then brewing one cup of coffee using a K-Cup. Having a reservoir might be a concern for those who want to brew multiple cups of coffee one after the other, but for most coffee drinkers having one cup of perfect coffee in the morning is the priority and the Mr. Coffee single serve brewing system delivers cup after single serve coffee cup.
One of the really amazing things about the Mr. Coffee BVMC-KG1 Single Serve Brewing System is that it has no reservoir so the water you use is fresh every time. Sure you'll go through a reservoir on a larger brewer over the course of a week and maintain some level of freshness, but each time you use the Mr. Coffee Keurig brewer the water is fresh from whatever source you use making a fresher cup of coffee.
How good is the coffee produced? We tried a variety of K-Cup coffees, teas, and other hot beverages. In two blind taste tests with various coffees we couldn't tell the difference in taste. the Mr. Coffee BVMC-KG1 Single Serve Brewing System makes an amazing cup of coffee for much less money than other Keurig brewers.
Conclusions of the Mr. Coffee Single Serve Brewing System for Keurig
Easy to use
Works with all K-Cups and the My K-Cup reusable filter
No large reservoir
Like the Keurig Mini Plus we really love the simplicity and ease of use of the Mr. Coffee BVMC-KG1 Single Serve Brewing System. We think if you're also looking to spend less than $80 this is the Keurig Brewer for you. The Keurig B40 is nearly $20 more, and does have a reservoir but if you don't need it this brewer makes an amazing cup of K-Cup single serve coffee.
Thanks to Mr. Coffee for sending us this brewer to review.
