The Keurig K3000SE is a great choice for self-service, customer-facing settings or office break room use. Just make sure you're OK with its required direct water line plumbing and max 10 oz brew size and 35-40 spent pod capacity.
If you're looking for a commercial brewer that has a standard refillable reservoir, you have 2 options:
- K150P with a 90 oz reservoir, 10 oz max brew size, Temp Control (no Strength Control), and color touch LCD display
- K1500 with a 96 oz reservoir, 12 oz max brew size, Strength Control (no Temp Control), and button-only interface (no LCD screen)
If the K3000SE sounds like the brewer for you, we'd recommend the newly-released K3500 instead. It's Keurig's latest commercial model and offers several advantages over the K3000SE:
- Max 12 oz brew size (instead of 10 oz)
- Both Temp Control and Strength Control (instead of just Temp Control)
- Color touch LCD screen (instead of black and white)
- High Altitude setting
- More modern, aesthetically-pleasing design
But there's one thing all of these models fail to include: specialty beverages like cappuccinos and lattes.
For those, you need the K4000 Cafe, which has two 1 lb powdered milk hoppers to make up to 50 cappuccinos before refilling.
