Review: Mr. Coffee BVMC-KG1 K-Cup Single Serve Brewing System

Review Single Serve Coffee41GQydnxusL._SL500_AA300_.jpg

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.

Key Features of the Mr. Coffee Keurig K-Cup Brewer

  • Powered by Keurig brewing technology for coffee house quality at home
  • Compatible with Keurig K-Cup portion packs
  • 8-Ounce brewing capacity
  • Removable drip tray
  • On and off indicator light
  • Brewing a Cup of K-Cup Coffee with the Mr. Coffee Keurig Brewer

Other features include for us - a really beautiful design. We love the lines, and the brewer has a high quality feel for a Mr. Coffee product. The drip tray is also easy to remove and clean.

Brewing a Cup of Single Serve Coffee with the Mr. Coffee Keurig Brewer

In just a few simple steps, you can enjoy a coffee house style gourmet coffee, tea or hot cocoa.

  1. Lift reservoir lid and pour in a cup of water.
  2. Insert the K-Cup Portion Pack and close the brewer compartment.
  3. Close the reservoir and press BREW.



Video of the Mr. Coffee BVMC-KG1 Single Serve Brewing System in action is below.

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


  • Small footprint
  • 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.

I just purchased a "Mr Coffee Single-serve" myself, and am wondering whata the "Solofill" in the above review is? I tried purchasing a Keurig single-serve filter, but am not thinking it is going to work inside the Mr. Coffee machine. If I take the filter out of the container it will, but am concerned that without a cap, the grounds may leak. Has anyone tried to use their own coffee to fill a filter. I do enjoy the pre-packaged coffees but in a pinch would like to use my own.

I have this and a B60 at another residence. I don't miss the reservoir and the Mr Coffee unit is so much quieter, I only know its brewing by the soft water sound when it starts to pour into the cup, no rumble at all! Just received the "Solofill" which fits and works great! Im really impressed with this Mr Coffee brewer, after having tried their Pod brewers from years before I was dubious for sure, but they've more than made up for those mistakes! Great Job
