Do you usually wake up in the morning only to realize that you didn’t hear the alarm (or alarms) go off? And now you need to hurry up, get dress, eat breakfast, and go to work. One thing in your mind what about coffee? I mean what kind of a monster doesn’t allow you to get a good cup of your much-needed coffee? Ok, now not to be dramatic but I have the solution for those Introducing k-cups from Keurig. These time-saving, easy to brew coffee cups or pods are just what you need.

But between k-cup and regular coffee maker, which is best? I’ll be sharing with you some pros and cons so you can decide for yourself.


  1. Convenient

As you know, easy to use, It comes with little pods (or packets) of coffee in which you can add boiling water, eliminating the need to measure out proportions and flavoring. It helps you save your precious time.

  1. Low maintenance

All you need to do is add water to it and the machine will do all the work, I mean how much easier does it get?

  1. Different flavors

You can choose from a wide range of flavors. Pick your favorite or try new flavors of coffee every day. The choice is yours.

  1. Simple brewing process

It makes the brewing process a lot easier. Now you don’t have to wait for hours to get your perfect cup of coffee. It even beats instant coffee in that regard.

  1. Air-tight seal to ensure freshness

The air-tight seal keeps it fresh for a long period of time so you don’t have to worry about stale and over-brewed coffee anymore.

  1. Single-serve

It is one per person which makes it easier to prepare. It also allows you to choose the cup size and brew strength of your choice.

  1. No plastic taste

The greatest thing about it is that it comes in metal containers so you don’t have to worry about the plastic taste that accompanies your usual cup of coffee sometimes.


  1. Expensive

An average of k-cup costs about $40 which is roughly three times the amount of Starbucks coffee. But the fact that you aren’t hitting Starbucks several times a day will make it look straight up cheap.

  1. Non-Biodegradable

Because they come in metal containers, they are difficult to recycle or even decompose. As they are increasing in popularity in different parts of the world especially America, it will become a huge problem for land pollution in the near future.

These k-cups might not beat the freshly brewed coffee from your preferable grounded beans but they are perfect for a rushed morning. The pros more than make up for cons. No one and I really mean no one ever should start one’s day without having coffee first.
