Bought this coffee maker as one of the birthday gifts for my significant other. This is a very nice Keurig coffee maker; compact and brews coffee just how we like it. It is easy to use and it brews coffee quickly. I was afraid that it will not heat up the water, but it proved me wrong. I am thinking of buying one for my work!

Love Keurig. Have a larger one at home. This one makes one cup of coffee at a time and you have to add the water separately for each cup of coffee. Not an idea situation for home but for my office, where this one is, it is great. Keeps water for becoming stagnant and my co-workers can use it too. Only thing I'd like to see different is that I wish it would hold a few more ounces of water so each cup could have more liquid. Still it is a great machine for the office and it was a great price.

The Keurig B130 is a small no-frills Keurig model. Dimensions are approximately 11" H x 7" W x 10.5" deep. Since it's a commercial model (like you might find in a hotel room), it has instructions printed on the front panel, which you may find helpful or unsightly. Water must be put into the reservoir for every use. Clean-up involves wiping down any tiny spatters on the unit and washing out the drip tray--very easy.
After two months of 2 - 4 times per day use, I've found the Keurig B130 to be pretty good. It brews a cup of coffee or tea within a few minutes and brews hot enough for a decent extraction. (Though tea never comes out very good with any Keurig--just not enough brew time.) The need to put water in each time is fine with me, since water that sits around doesn't taste as good anyway and pouring in the water is simple and straightforward. I've found that 6 - 7 oz of water per k-cup is optimal for a flavorful brew, though if you prefer a milder cup, the machine will take up to 8.
Downsides: the machine seems a bit rickety, like it may not have great longevity. This seems to be a problem with all Keurig brewers. I've yet to hear of one lasting more than 2 or 3 years with daily use.
A bigger issue with the B130 involves use of an Ekobrew Reusable K-Cup filter. Sometimes it works fine and sometimes the machine ejects the Ekobrew mid-cycle, spewing hot, saturated coffee grounds (i.e. lava that stains) everywhere. Varying the grind and the amount of coffee in the filter has made little difference, though it seems better when the filter is filled to the 2/3 line instead of 3/4 and the grind is a bit on the fine side but not powdery-fine. Also, the Ekobrew and some K-cups cause clogging of the outflow pipe on the Keurig (that sharp-ended tube that pokes into the k-cups). When this happens, the Keurig just stops mid-cycle. Sometimes re-starting it will coax it into completing the cycle; sometime adding a little more water helps. I've found that running a cycle or two of plain water usually clears the clog. Once, I had to poke a needle up the tube and root around, which I'm sure is a bad idea. It did work, though.
Overall, if you're looking for a reasonably-priced Keurig brewer and don't mind one with diagrams on the front, and if you don't mind the expense of K-cups, I'd say the B130 is a solid option.

I wanted one to keep at my desk at work when I just needed one cup. It is great!! Not to mention the coffee tastes so much better!!! Maybe because I am using filtered water. Donut Shop Coconut Mocha if you enjoy the taste of coconut--its fabulous!! I will be recommending this to all my friends. I drink too much coffee at home, or I would have one there too!! Still may consider getting one with reservoir for home! Buy this machine, you wont regret it!!

This is a great machine. I bought one to place on my desk at work so I didn't have to drink our terrible "office coffee". Needless to say, my coworkers are quite jealous.
The only downside is that it does not make the water quite hot enough for my taste. I had to get a desktop candle warmer to use as a coaster and keep my coffee warm.
Still a great product. Worth the buy.
The diameter of the cup holder is limited. I have a "fat" cup that is my favorite that it will not accommodate - however that's a relatively minor issue. Also, when I use a reusable filter, it doesn't snap closed as easily as with the standard disposable cup. That's probably the fault of the reusable filter, though.
Hello 1annp, you would need to purchase the reusable coffe filter such as this one to use your own coffee in this brewer: http://www.overstock.com/Home-Garden/Brew-Save-Refillable-K-Cup-for-Keurig-Brewers/8924040/product.html?refccid=JFGCSYGB3W6YJJKGHAG6LF4TRA&searchidx=8

I've tried several different pods so I can use my own coffee with my b310 model and all of them do not fit this model. All of them said its for a keurig maker. Where can I find the one that fits this model?annie51414 on May 18, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello, annie51414. This model uses the k-cups and not the pods. Here's the link to some options: http://www.overstock.com/Office-Supplies/Mind-Reader-Vortex-Black-30-count-K-Cup-Holder-Spinning-Carousel/7516719/product.html

Just received mine, and was wondering how come it didn't arrive in a "sales" box (with graphics/etc., like in the stores). Rather, it's packaged in a cardboard box that i assumed would contain the other? not a big deal, but a plain brown box doesn't really have the same 'wow' factor on Christmas morning.davepond88 on Dec 5, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello davepond88, Thank you for your inquiry! Unfortunately, we can not guarantee the original packaging on items. We apologize about the inconvenience. Thank you for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Dec 5, 2013
The packaging is designed specifically for online retailers. The packaging is better during shipment and is more cost effective. The lower cost on packaging allows the price of the product to reflect that.lyss87000 on Dec 6, 2013
Mine came in a Original Manufacture's Packing box just like at the stores. Perhaps its a return that the originator didn't have the orginal box to return?paap2012 on Dec 15, 2013

Yes, but you need to buy one of those little K Cup sized filters. They sell Kuerig brand ones, and they have cheaper versions at chain drugstores.overstock741 on Jun 11, 2013
