The Bottom Line

One of Keurig's original "Mini" K-Cup models, the K10 has a max 10 oz brew size with its "fill before each use" reservoir. Now discontinued, the K10 has been replaced by the identical-looking K15 and upgraded K-Mini.

Keurig K10 Overview

Discontinued and replaced by the K15, the K10 Mini truly is mini. Its water reservoir needs to be filled before each use up to its 10 oz max brew size.

The K10 measures less than 11" in every direction with a somewhat narrow 6.9" width that was great when the K10 was first released but seems bulky with the release of Keurig's new 4.5" K-Mini.

Keurig has released over 70 different coffee makers over the years, and only about a dozen of them are still in production and supported by Keurig. Those in-production models include both the K15 and K-Mini, making them both preferable to the discontinued K10.

Pros

  • Compact and foolproof to use
  • Handy water measuring tool inside the reservoir to effectively measure out 6, 8, or 10 oz
  • 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

  • Discontinued model
  • Not compatible with a water filter
  • Max 10 oz reservoir needs to be refilled before each use

Is the Keurig K10 for you?

Is Keurig K10 for you?

The Keurig K10 is a small, simple coffee maker with no extra features. It's best for occasional coffee drinkers who don't mind measuring out their water and refilling the reservoir before each use. But even then, go with the nearly identical (and still in-production) K15.

If you're looking for Keurig's newest mini coffee maker, check out the K-Mini. It has the same "fill before each use" brew method but includes Keurig's updated brewing system and a larger 12 oz max brew size in a smaller 4.5" package.

If the K10's 6.9" width is fine, you may like the K-Compact. It's a touch larger at 8.2" wide but has a 36 oz removable water reservoir. That's definitely handy if you're a daily coffee drinker.

With 10 different brew sizes up to 30 oz, a sizable 70 oz reservoir, and an intuitive color touch display, K400 series brewers made K-Cup coffee easy. Now discontinued, we recommend the Keurig K-Duo Plus instead.

One of our favorite values, Keurig 2.0 K300 series brewers are a big jump up from their K200 counterparts with a 60 oz reservoir, Temp Control, and more. Now discontinued, we recommend the Keurig K-Duo instead.
