Keurig K-Duo Plus: Things I Dislike About It


I bought the Keurig K-Duo Plus in late 2019 and I’ve probably brewed around 500 k-cups with it as well as probably around 25 full pots of coffee with it. I actually really like the machine for it’s versatility and it’s ability to brew many different sizes of coffee but still there are a few things I don’t like about it.

Because reviews don’t usually focus on the negatives of a good product I thought this video would be useful to potential customers.
