Keurig K500 Coffee Maker - Keurig 2.0 Has Lots of Options
You can brew big or small with the Keurig K500 AKA the Keurig 2.0 coffee maker. CNET has a good video showcasing the various brewing options for K-Cups and Large K-Carafe Packs. There’s even brewing choices on Keurig 2.0 coming this Fall. If you want stronger coffee you can pick that option via the LCD menu, and the Keurig K500 will take a longer time to brew.

I hunted around and read the Cnet review for the Keurig 2.0 A few comments;
1) It can brew up to 30 oz *from 2 oz in small increments, unclear on this). But this offsets one of single serve coffee's great advantages; fresh coffee fir every single cup (at least theoretically). I will drink 2 cups in the morning, maybe 3 on the weekends. Every cup will be new; nothing will sit around and get stale
I lied; there are no other comments. So why is it that I am going to spend $189 on a new Keurig that can only brew Keurig licensed K-cups?.
What is the compelling reason that I am missing that I would want to lock into a new eco-system?
I understand what Keurig is doing (and why), considering that they seem to have failed with the Vue, but what is my benefit?
Really puzzled on this one. I'd be more likely to buy a Vertuoline to be honest.
I'd be interested to find out how many grams of coffee is in the K-Carafe cup. At first look it may finally be just enough to get a full flavored cup of coffee from a Keurig machine. A full flavored carafe though? I'm sure not.
Well, it's nice to finally get to see some of the machine's details, however, I'll be waiting this one out instead of becoming an early adopter.
Keurig promised to make the Vue & Vue Packs available in Canada during their press releases and that never occurred after sales didn't do so well in USA, so I'll wait to see if we end up having a repeat "no show" in Canada with this K500 and the new K-Carafe packs.
The Rivo just got released in Canada recently which was a major surprise, but it's only got 4 espresso flavors and there hasn't been any future development on new Rivo packs since the machine's launch in USA, so I fear it'll go the way of the Vue and become an afterthought.
It just remains to be seen if the K500 will suffer the same fate as the Vue (it does seem to carry-over most of the Vue's features/interface). K500 in Canada? As the saying goes: "I'll believe it when I see it".
