How the hell do I make this thing make me coffee??!!!

There's water. I pushed the freaking power button. I put a pod thingy in it. The two blue lights are on for the cup sizes (I guess that's what they are?). I pushed the smaller cup button.....

And nothing! It hisses every few minutes. But fuck. Give me coffee!!!!

Lol. I hate this thing. I'm at work and desperately need caffeine. I've been here since 7 pm and still have about 2 hrs left.

This was my bosses Xmas gift to us all. We use to have a regular ol coffee pot. I miss it. Because I'm too dense to operate this fancy shit!

I'm one of those people that go to Starbucks and tell the person behind the counter "I just want a small coffee flavored coffee. That's it....just coffee flavored coffee".

Help a tired idiot out this morning ladies. What am I missing here?!

Lift the lid and the lights have to be blinking for it to come on .

Take the pod out. Close the thing. Lift it and put the pod back in-be sure there is a cup under there and you should be good to go. The blue light on the brew button needs to be blinking.

Omg. I love you all. It's actually doing things. And sounds scary as hell while doing it....but I see lovely liquid coming out into my cup now.

GOD BLESS YOU ALL lol


Dang. The small cup button doesn't make very much at all, does it?


It sounds like it's gonna blow up in my face!

You can't put the kcup in until the water is done heating up. Then hit the size button. So what you need to do now, is open and close where you put the kcup so that it thinks you changed cups out.

Just a heads up...you need to de-scale it monthly for mineral build up or it will break down on you. Fill the tank with vinegar, run it through, then run through with water until all the vinegar is flushed out.

I love my Keurig!

The small cup is for a little tea cup, the large one is a regular coffe mug.

It's our break room coffee maker. I feel like I should leave that job for the daytime people that actually know how to operate it lol.

I'm such a jerk. I even stole my coworkers creamer. I mean, only like a couple tablespoons. But still....I'm a creamer thief.
