Back-To-School With The Keurig Mini Brewing System Review

Posted by Jenna | Thursday, September 09, 2010

With a new school year beginning, many parents find themselves on the go. Whether it be taking the kids to school or heading off to after-school activities....this is a very busy time of year. For those of us who enjoy our morning (or afternoon and evening) cup of coffee, it can be difficult to fit it in. Thankfully, Keurig makes it easy by offering brewers that are easy to use and make a great cup of coffee in no time, one that you can easily grab and take with you wherever you're headed.
Many of you may remember the Keurig review I posted a few months back. If you missed it, here is a little bit if information about Keurig. Founded upon the belief that coffee should always be served fresh no matter where you're at, the question, 'Why do we brew coffee a pot at a time when we drink it a cup at a time?' came up. It was from this question that the revolutionary concept of the Keurig K-Cup portion pack brewing was born. First introduced in 1998, Keurig's innovative single-cup brewing systems let coffee lovers make a freshly-brewed, perfect cup of coffee every time. They have since become the leader in single-cup coffee brewing technology in the US for both the home and office. Offering a range of brewers and hundreds of K-Cups to choose from, Keurig is a name people have come to know and trust!

We had the opportunity to review a Keurig Mini Brewing System in white.


  • Offered in three colors: white, red, black
  • Heats and brews in less than 3 minutes
  • Brews an 8 oz cup
  • 10 K-Cups included
  • Smaller, convenient size
When I first pulled the Keurig Mini out of the box, I was very happy with the size. It's not too small, yet not too big. It's the perfect size for those heading back to school and looking for a smaller brewer to take with them. With a new school year beginning, parents are often on the go and having a single-cup brewer that allows you to make great coffee to go in less than 3 minutes makes this product a perfect choice!

As with other Keurig products I've seen and used, I was very pleased with the quality. The Keurig Mini Brewer offers the high quality one would expect from Keurig and I know it will last a very long time.

Using the brewer could not have been any easier. After plugging it in, you push the 'Press To Open' button on the top of the brewer. This opens the K-Cup holder making it easy to place the K-Cup of your choice in it.

Once the K-Cup is in place, you just lower the lid. The hot water tank will then automatically open. You simply pour in water up to the 'Fill Level' line and close the cover.

At this point the 'cup light' flashes to let you know that you need to place the cup on the drip tray so it's ready for brewing. I found that my travel coffee cups work perfectly. They do not fill all the way to the top, but it makes it very easy to grab and go once the coffee is brewed.

The 'brew button' then illuminates. Once you press it, the water begins heating. When heating is complete, it begins to brew and takes approximately 3 minutes.

That's it! It's so simple and in just minutes you have a single cup of great tasting coffee, cappuccino or tea! Yum!!

I really appreciate how simple the Keurig Mini Personal Brewing System is to use. For someone who doesn't have a lot of time to mess with making a cup of coffee, this would make the perfect brewer. It's also very easy to keep clean. I love that the drip tray can be pulled out to make cleaning easier. Who could ask for anything more?!

If you're looking for a compact size brewer that is convenient and easy to use, you should definitely consider the Keurig Mini Brewing System. It's a great size for home, the dorm, an office...pretty much anywhere.
