The Elite Brewing System is Keurig's gourmet home brewing made affordable. The Elite Brewing System, the most affordably priced Keurig kitchen brewing system, offers K-Cup® coffee, tea and hot cocoa brewing as the elite choice to any drip coffee maker. The Elite offers two cup sizes for brewing options with the programmable feature of Auto Off. The 48-ounce removable water reservoir holds up to 6 cups before refilling and for the removable drip tray allows for easy cleaning and the use of travel mugs.At initial set up, once the machine is filled with water, it will take approximately 4-minutes for the water will be heated. During the heating period the red light next to ‘HEATING’ on the LED Control Center will become illuminated. Once the water is heated, the red light will turn off and the Small Mug Button will flash. Press the Small Mug Button to start a cleansing brew. Pour the hot water into the sink. The Brewer may take 15 seconds to reheat water between brews during which time the red light next to ‘HEATING’ on the LED Control Center may be illuminated. When the water has heated, the red light will turn off. The one-time set-up process is now complete and you are ready to brew!

I think the people who claim this machine is too loud and complain that it vibrates too much are your normal "Mr. Coffee" people. Yes, the machine makes noise. It's pumping pressurized hot water into the K-Cups. Of course it's gonna make noise. I counted each time the noise was made. It lasts five seconds each time, at most. And it's MUCH quieter than my Melitta Mill & Brew, which grinds the coffee beans with a high shrill. This machine also vibrates. But again, it's well worth the minor noise and moderate vibration. You shouldn't be shelling out this much money for a coffee machine if you expect a Mr. Coffee coffee maker. You are buying a "gourmet" coffee machine, and it has some cool features that require hot pressurized water to be pumped through the machine. Not a big deal!
I think a lot of the negative reviews that I read, and maybe all of them, referred to an older version of the B40 that only had one cup size setting. Indeed, when I purchased this machine at Target today, the display model for the B40 had only one cup size. I had to triple-check the box to make sure I was getting the B40 with the TWO cup sizes (and I was). So maybe they have improved the machine since that version.
I read negative reviews about this machine making weak coffee. I was so freaked out about those reviews, I wanted to brew every K-Cup (even the Extra Bold) on the small cup setting. As I was brewing the third cup, I put in a "regular" K-Cup and hit the "large" cup setting. I immediately went into Panic Mode, worried that I just wasted a K-Cup, because my coffee would be too weak to drink. Not true at all! Yes, the coffee was not quite as strong as I would normally like, but it was a very decent cup of coffee. I will not worry if I ever hit the large size on a regular pod again. Although I plan on buying all Extra Bold cups, so that I can brew a bigger cup.
I am extremely pleased with this coffee machine. So much so that I plan to buy two of this same model (or the B60 if it's on sale) as Christmas gifts for my mom and uncle.
As a former coffee house Assistant Manager and an avid fan of "gourmet" coffee, I highly recommend this coffee machine. Probably the best $100 I have spent in at least five years. One of my biggest concerns was that the beans had NO TIME to brew properly in such a short amount of time. But I was completely wrong. This machine brews a nice, bold, rich cup of coffee. Slightly less bold and rich if you brew the regular pods on the larger cup setting; but still very drinkable. I was also concerned that the pods would leak after removing them from the machine, but they are almost dry. I haven't had a single one drip on the way to the trash can, and I remove them seconds after brewing. I'm extremely pleased with the ease and cleanliness of using this machine. No filters to deal with, no messy coffee grounds, no dirty coffee pots to wash (and filter baskets). The convenience of the machine alone is well worth the minor noise and vibration.
I highly recommend this machine. Just do your research and make sure this is the coffee machine you are looking for. It takes time to research, but it pays off in the end. I couldn't be happier with the B40, and don't see why anyone else wouldn't be just as pleased.
Time for me to make another cup.
Pros and cons:
The advantage of this model over the earlier one is three cup size choices instead of two, the K45 is far quieter and heats a great deal faster. With the K40, we had to wait something like a full minute (or at least seemed that long) between brewing cups, while the water was heated up again. Not so with the K45. It seems the wait now is only about 5 to 7 seconds! My only complaint so far is that ever so often, a small amount of very hot coffee comes dripping from the front edge of the K-cup enclosure during brewing. We use the same pods every day, and did not do anything different (as far as we could tell) when the dripping/spitting occurred once so far in a week's use. I had to move the coffee cup further forward me than I liked to catch the drips which fell outside the drip tray area in front of the coffee maker.
If you look at the picture of the product, you will see it has TWO buttons. The picture is the OLD version of the Keurig product. I ordered this specifically (and paid a premium) because Keurig has redesigned the product and the NEW three button version is ABSOLUTE junk!
This vendor is actually shipping the Three button version, NOT the two button version as is pictured. Here is my experience over three of these!
Older version - TWO button
Consistently makes a mediocre cup of coffee very quickly. Press the button, starts brewing right away, product lasts over two years.
New version - THREE button (Buyer beware!)
Begins misbehaving almost immediately:
- When you press the button, nothing happens for 30 seconds! Then it MAY fill the cup with coffee (often 3/4 cup)
- After about 1 - 2 months, begins filling the cup 1/2 to 1/3
- Shortly after that off to the landfill
Amazon: Fix the picture. What's shown is the older version (two buttons) what ships is the new version
Vendor: Same as above. I bought from you expecting the 2 button version, I know the 3 button version is junk
Keurig: Wow! You have to be kidding! You had a good product, you now produce a slow, unreliable product that lasts less than 6 months before beginning to fail. Bring back the old model! Junk the new model, fire the engineers who "improved" it.
