The Bottom Line
Keurig's most basic office model, the UL Commercial listed K145 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 K145 OfficePRO Overview

Intended for office use, the UL Commercial listed K145 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 K145 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
  • Comes with K-Cup variety pack
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 K145 OfficePRO for you?

Is Keurig K145 OfficePRO for you?

An uncomplicated, UL Commercial listed brewer, the K145 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 K145s 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 K145:

  • 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 K145, is the Drain Brewer function.

Keurig K1500

Keurig K1500
Overall Rating: 87
Boasting Keurig's new 12 oz brew size, Strength Control, and a massive 96 oz water reservoir (the largest of any Keurig brewer) the K1500 is the ideal low-maintenance brewer for small offices and common areas.

Keurig K400

Keurig K400
Overall Rating: 87
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.

Keurig K-Classic

Keurig K-Classic
Overall Rating: 85
The new-and-improved version of Keurig's revolutionary single-serve coffee maker, the K-Classic builds on the success of their iconic K45/K55 with an upgraded brewing system and the same no-frills design.

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!
