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 Now discontinued, the K10 has been replaced by the identical-looking K15 and upgraded K-Mini.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.

The Keurig K-Cafe, replacing the discontinued Rivo, brews K-Cup coffee, espresso, and even milk-based lattes and cappuccinos thanks to the integrated frother, all with the push of a single button (OK, two buttons).

The crown jewel of the Keurig 2.0 pod-scanning system, feature-rich K500 series brewers offer 11 brew sizes (up to 30 oz) and massive 80 oz reservoir. Now discontinued, we recommend the Keurig K-Duo Plus instead.

I'm Bryan but most people know me as The Coffee Maven. I grew up outside Boston, Massachusetts and received my Bachelor's degree in Biochemistry from Providence College. My first introduction to coffee was during my college days, when I used it as a source of caffeine to fuel late-night study sessions, but soon I became obsessed with the chemistry of coffee. How did changes to water temperature or contact time affect its taste? Why do beans from Africa taste fruity while beans from Indonesia taste spicy? I launched The Coffee Maven in February 2017 to explore these questions and help others brew their perfect cup. Welcome to my site, and thanks for reading!
