Keurig K1500 Overview

The Keurig K1500 is one of Keurig's commercial brewers with a UL Commercial listing and a massive 96 oz water reservoir capable of brewing 8-16 coffees ranging from 6-12 oz before needing to be refilled. And it's compatible with direct water line plumbing for even more low-maintenance operation.

Huge capacity is the K1500's calling card, making it great for workplaces or low-throughput commercial settings.

It also comes with most of the feature conveniences you'd want in a high-end Keurig coffee maker:

  • Strength control
  • High-altitude setting
  • Drainable internal tank
  • Auto-On/Off functionality

Despite the massive water reservoir, the K1500 is surprisingly compact with a countertop footprint of just 10.25"W x 12.1"D and it weighs just 10.2 lbs when empty.

Pros
  • UL Commercial listed
  • Includes Keurig's upgraded system for richer coffee and quieter brewing
  • No pod-scanning technology so brews both licensed and unlicensed K-Cup pods
  • Massive 96 oz water reservoir
  • Drainable internal tank
Cons
  • No Temp Control feature
  • Pump may fail after 6-9 months if repeatedly pushed through heavy use
  • Doesn't come with a water filter kit

About The Coffee Maven

Bryan De Luca

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!
