This Compact Coffee Maker That's a 'Perfect Fit' for Dorm Rooms Is at Its Lowest Price This Year

No matter where they attend or their aspired career path, most college students experience lots of late-night study sessions. That’s why a coffee maker is one of the most important things to have on their packing list. Especially since students likely don’t want to spend $5 per day (or more) on Starbucks coffee runs.

We understand dorm rooms and apartments offer limited space, so a compact machine is essential. Luckily, we found one on mega sale at Amazon, and it’s a stellar option for college students considering it only measures 5.55"D x 13.19"W x 14.37"H. The Keurig K-Mini Single-Serve Coffee Maker is just $79 right now, which is the lowest price it has been since last summer. Not only is it ideal for making a cup of joe within minutes, but it also helps prevent wasting excess coffee since it only makes one serving at a time.

Get it!

Don’t let its small size fool you; this little coffee maker can accommodate mugs from 6 to 12 ounces, including travel mugs. Simply remove the drainage tray, and a tall cup will fit perfectly under the dispenser. All you have to do is fill the one-cup water reservoir, add your coffee, and press “start.” In under five minutes, you’ll have a fresh brew prepared for class or a study session.

Keurig systems use disposable K-Cup Pods to make the brewing process quick and easy, and, the cups are available at Amazon from the top coffee vendors like Starbucks, Dunkin’, and The Original Donut Shop so you can enjoy your favorite roasts without leaving your home. Prime members have access to fast, free shipping to ensure your pod refills arrive in a timely manner. Anyone who prefers reusable cups and freshly ground coffee should add this four-pack of filters to their purchase.

It’s no surprise that these coffee makers are highly rated among thousands of Amazon shoppers considering how convenient and space-saving they are. Over 26,000 people have given the Keurig a five-star rating, and several specified that it’s great for college students. One reviewer who purchased it as a gift called the Keurig a “perfect fit” for a dorm room.

“I've been using it for about a month now and it works great,” wrote another shopper. “It is very easy to use and makes the perfect cup of coffee. Perfect gift, especially for college students like me!”
