There is a number of K-Cup coffee makers that aren’t made by Keurig, but come from other brands, that can cost less than Keurig’s own brand . Of course, they won’t have the same advanced features, but those extra bells and whistles are not something we all need. So you can give up those features and get a basic machine that does a perfect job at brewing K-cup pods at your budget.
