Before my move I noticed that my Keurig was very loud, taking longer to brew, and the coffee was not coming out as quickly. I feared that the death of my Keurig was imminent however, to try to prevent it I cleaned out the machine with a vinegar and water (as suggested on Pinterest) and it seemed to help. This week I noticed the same things happening with my Keurig yet, more pronounced. I’m figuring that sooner, rather than later my poor Keurig is going to die on me so I had better be prepared. I’m a bear in the morning without my coffee fix seriously!
I started to price replacement machines and the only machine that is within my budget was the Keurig Mini. I had some reservations because the Keurig Mini does not have as many features as my current machine. I’ll be totally honest and say the auto-off feature is a necessity for my OCD tendencies. Ultimately, I decided to wait until after Christmas to purchase a new machine.
Now, I am so glad that I did not order this machine as a replacement because I would be out of a coffee maker for an extended time while waiting for the recall replacement solution. So, I am still on the hunt for a new coffeemaker.
As you may have heard, there is a recall on the Keurig Mini Plus brewing systems. The recall is due to the unit overheating and spraying scalding hot water which is obviously dangerous.
