The 2.0 Technology, QR Codes Pave the Way. Single Serve? How Smart is Your Coffee Maker?

I get attached to things. I don't like change. So when an item which I use with regularity needs replacing I tend to freak out a little bit, especially when I find out that it is no longer available. That is what happened with my coffee machine this week. I had an old Breville, with all the bells and whistles.  I started searching and, long story short, there will be no new Breville; they do not make them anymore.

Moving on, I am also a little bit picky. I like a short, 4oz brew which I brew into my mug of steamed and frothed fat-free milk. So I am looking for a machine which allows me to select the ounces for my brew.I found that Keurig had my best options and was surprised to find more... first of all the Keurig K450 Brewing System, Black 2.0 brewing system is the first Keurig system that allows you to brew a piping hot 4-cup carafe with the same ease and convenience of brewing a single-serve cup  — all at the touch of a button.

The Keurig K450 Brewing System, Black brewer also features revolutionary Keurig 2.0 Brewing Technology, designed to read the lid of each K-Cup or K-Carafe pod to brew the perfect beverage every time. STOP. RIGHT. THERE. Read that one more time? It reads the top of the K-Cup's label for the QR code, and then what? It knows what you are making and how to proceed, automatically.

The brewer also features a large 70 ounce Water Reservoir, 2.4 inch color Touch Display, programmable clock, an auto brew option, and a strength control setting for brewing bolder coffee. There’s even a separate setting for hot cocoa and other specialty beverages like chais and mochas. So many choices. Just look for the Keurig logo on your favorite K-Cup pod and K-Carafe pod varieties. The Keurig 2.0 K400 brewing system also includes a Keurig Carafe and K-Cup and K-Carafe pods to get you started.

Anything else? oh yeah, I wasted a lot of time shopping at Bloomingdales, Williams-Sonoma and BBB only to fing that the best retailer for both price and availability was Amazon! Sure...Keurig K450 Brewing System, Black
