If you’re living in a small space or simply have a large coffee maker taking up too much counter space then brewing from a small k-cup coffee maker, something that has a small footprint might be best.
Most tiny Keurig’s feature small water reservoirs or no reservoir at all. They also usually have less bells and whistles too but some of them still make pretty good coffee even if they don’t have all the features found in the best Keurig’s on the market these days.
In this article I wanted to take some time to show you some of the smallest k-cup coffee makers I’ve used and give you my thoughts on why I might recommend them and to whom I might recommend them too.
Some of these machines are Keurig alternative brands but they all brew standard k-cups. The fastest to brew machines are often the ones that take up the most space but these days there are newer, smaller, and more efficient Keurigs to choose from making them better options now than ever before.
So without further ado, let’s get to the list.
The Smallest K-Cup Coffee Makers On The Market Today
Keurig K-Mini K15
To start, let’s discuss Keurig’s own super small brewer. It’s compact but still able to brew temperature-proven rich coffee.
The Keurig K-mini 15 brews via a simple touch button making a brew session as quick as possible. Fresh water is added to the unit for each individual brew which means you’ll have the chamber cleared after each session so that you can easily pick it up and travel after.
It’s also compatible with the Keurig Classic Series My K-Cup Reusable Coffee Filter, so you can brew your own ground coffee.
Keurig has engineered these miniature brewers to deliver a consistent brew.
The K-mini K15 is the smallest in the K-mini series but it still allows the machine to brew with re-usable k-cups. This brewer was developed from the now discontinued K-10 brewer, which featured different hardware but still the same brew size.
So today, we have the K-15, this is a great brewer for travel or sitting on the countertop, the Keurig can be customized with various colors to match your style.
The Bunn MCU Multi-Use Brewer brings you the convenience of single cup plus the flexibility of being able to brew flavorful coffee or tea using your choice of K-Cups, ground coffee, soft coffee and tea pods, tea bags and loose tea.
The brewer features a stainless steel hot water tank that holds water at the perfect temperature for best flavor extraction. Includes 4 interchangeable drawers (cups, pods/ tea bags, ground coffee, hot water) to brew your favorite coffee or tea.
Aicok Single Serve Coffee Maker
The Aicok Single Serve is on our list due to the advanced brew time. It’s down to a science at a minute and a half per cup while heating water individually for each brew. This means you can make a cup of coffee and then immediately pack the brewer up for travel.
As long as you’ve got access to a power source, then the Aicok Single Serve is ready to go.
It’s also efficient on power since the brewer employs an auto-shutoff mechanism. The one-touch controls make the brewer easy to use, and will be compatible with K-cups of any style, or drink. Feel free to make lattes or hot chocolate K-cups too.

This brewer offers richer functions and is more convenient and easy use due to the built-in metal filter screen and capsule box which is compatible with various capsules including K-cup packs.
For an added touch of elegance, the water output only starts to deliver for brewing when the water temperature reaches the best brewing temperature set by the machine.
The Chefman InstaBrew is the outdoorsman’s dream coffee maker. InstaBrew Coffee Maker & K-Cup Brewer is a truly versatile unit, specially designed to accept all brands of K-Cups as well as coffee grounds.
