The Brewing Process
Let’s now talk about how to brew coffee with K55 Single Serve. To start brewing, first fill the water reservoir and then push the power button to switch it on. The power button light and the heating indicator will light up. There will be some noise inside indicating that the machine is warming up. Now, when the machine is ready to brew, the 3 cups light will illuminate and you have to choose your preferred cup size for brewing.
Put your favorite k cup in the k cup holder and place the mug on the drip tray. The 3 cup size buttons will now start blinking. Press your desired cup size button and wait for the machine to dispense coffee.

Cleaning this Keurig is super easy. After routine use, just wipe the machine with damp cloth or a little wet cloth if there is some stain. You can also clean the K cup holder, the output spout with this cloth. The water reservoir is dishwasher safe and can be washed occasionally. Descale as other single serve machines are done.
