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

Keurig K-Cafe

Keurig K-Cafe
Overall Rating: 84
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).

Keurig K525

Keurig K525
Overall Rating: 88
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.

Keurig Rivo

Keurig Rivo
Overall Rating: 80
Keurig's first machine designed to brew lattes and cappuccinos, the Rivo has since been discontinued and replaced by the Keurig K-Cafe and K-Latte. We'd go with one of those, but you can still find the Rivo online.
