Hello my beautiful friends!! This review is for all my coffee lovers. #HelloKeurig! I received this new brewing system from the influenter team. Thanks, guys! I really love my new kit.
I am giving you full permission to be jealous right now, because I would totally envy you if I did not get to review one of those. Okay, I just thought I would get this out of the way! You have to be a coffee drinker to understand how happy I was when I opened the door to this wonderful surprise. Needless to say that I put the machine together the same night and could not wait for morning to come so I could put it to the test. And putting it to the test I did! This new brewing system from Keurig makes getting a fresh cup of coffee easier every morning, or every night, depending on what shift I am working that day.
Product Information ( What Keurig Claims)Say Hello to the Keurig® 2.0 K550 Brewing System — the first Keurig system that features revolutionary Keurig 2.0 Brewing Technology™ which is designed to read the lid of each K-Cup™ or K-Carafe™ pack to brew the perfect beverage every time.

I am going to start with my problem with the new Keurig 2.0. This coffee brewer has been reloaded, and I love it. My only problem is that I have to reset the clock every time I plug it in. If only it could save the setting. For those of us who depend on coffee to give us a boost in the morning, this is the best gadget for your kitchen. It is also great for your home office. I love how easy it is for me to get one cup of really hot coffee in the morning, and the convenience of having a full carafe when I am entertaining guests. The water temperature is right on. The screen is very responsive. You can get hot tea, coffee, hot water, or hot chocolate with the touch of a button. How cool is that? You can also select the auto-brew option if you want to wake up to a fresh cup of coffee in the morning. I call this coffee machine my new toy. It is totally a keeper for me.
*Warning* You cannot use your old k-cups with this new keurig 2.0 brewing system.
*UPDATE* Press and hold the button to get hot water
