The Bottom Line

Keurig's most basic office model, the UL Commercial listed K140 has an underwhelming 48 oz reservoir and max 10 oz brew size, but the Drain Brewer function is handy and its sturdy build makes it great for heavy use.

Keurig K140 Overview

Intended for office use, the UL Commercial listed K140 doesn't have a ton of additional features, like Strength Control or Temp Control.

Instead, it has a different take on functionality, leveraging a brew size selector knob.

The K140 does have a convenient Drain Brewer function, but it isn't compatible with the reusable My K-Cup.

Intended for use in small offices (Keurig arbitrarily says less than 15 people), the 48 oz water reservoir will get the job done but will need to be refilled frequently.

Pros

  • UL Commercial listed
  • No pod-scanning technology so brews both licensed and unlicensed K-Cup pods
  • Drain Brewer function is awesome and makes cleaning the internal tank easy
  • Brew size knob is sturdy and easy to use

Cons

  • Not compatible with reusable My K-Cup
  • Underwhelming 48 oz reservoir for an office model
  • Max 10 oz brew size
  • No Strength Control or Temp Control

Is the Keurig K140 for you?

Is Keurig K140 for you?

An uncomplicated, UL Commercial listed brewer, the K140 is great for small office environments if you want to offer K-Cup convenience without breaking the bank on a big-time commercial model.

If you're looking for a commercial brewer with a larger reservoir, we wouldn't blame you. The K140's 48 oz tank is a little underwhelming.

Instead, check out the K1500. It's Keurig's newest base commercial model that offers a ton of upgrades over the K140:

  • Max 12 oz brew size
  • Massive 96 oz reservoir
  • Compatible with direct water line plumbing (no refilling!)
  • Strength Control for stronger cups (great with the 12 oz brew setting)

Just about the only thing the K1500 doesn't have, which you'll find in the K140, is the Drain Brewer function.

Keurig K350
Overall Rating: 85
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.

The Vue V1200 and identical Vue V1255 were Keurig's revolutionary commercial brewers with the ability to brew specialty beverages and 18 oz coffees. Now discontinued, check out the K1500 for a similar commercial model.
