The Bottom Line

Keurig's slimmest brewer, the K-Mini Plus is just like the K-Mini (4.5" wide and refill before each use) but adds several worthy upgrades. Most notably, a Strength Control setting and the 12 oz reservoir is removable.

Keurig K-Mini Plus Overview

The narrow 4.5" Keurig K-Mini Plus works just like the K-Mini and brews every drop of water you add to its 12 oz water reservoir.

Both models are upgrades over the K15, featuring the following improvements:

  • Max brew size increased from 10 oz to 12 oz
  • Max mug clearance increased from 5.2" to 7"
  • Width decreased from 7.5" to 4.5"
  • Weight decreased from 6.6 lbs to 4.6 lbs
  • High Altitude setting

Where the K-Mini Plus becomes "PLUS!" is with 4 small changes:

  • Removable water reservoir, which is easier to fill and clean
  • Strength Control feature
  • Chrome-colored accent panel on the drip tray
  • Pod storage accessory with 9-pod capacity

If those additions make it worth the likely elevated price tag, go for the K-Mini Plus.

Pros

  • Includes Keurig's upgraded system for richer coffee and quieter brewing
  • Compact and foolproof to use
  • Removable water reservoir is easy to clean and refill
  • Great for your desk at work, dorm room or bedroom, or anywhere else you want a cup of coffee quickly
  • No pod-scanning technology so brews both licensed and unlicensed K-Cup pods

Cons

  • Not compatible with a water filter
  • Max 12 oz reservoir needs to be refilled before each use
  • Not sure the removable water reservoir and chrome accent are worth paying up for
  • No extra features

Is the Keurig K-Mini Plus for you?

Is Keurig K-Mini Plus for you?

The Keurig K-Mini Plus is great if you're looking for a super-slim coffee maker with a few features of convenience, like the Strength Control setting and removable reservoir.

If you're looking for the same narrow design and "fill before each use" brewing method, you'll be fine getting the regular ol' K-Mini.

If you're looking for a removable reservoir but want more capacity so you don't have to refill before every brew, take a look at the K-Compact.

If you're looking for another narrow machine with a surprisingly large 46 oz reservoir, the K-Slim is for you.
