The water reservoir of the Keurig K Cafe Single Serve K Cup Coffee Maker holds 60 ounces (1.8 L) of water. It is removable for easy cleaning and refilling.

Available cup size selections are 6, 8, 10, and 12 ounces (177, 237, 296, and 355 ml). A 6″ (15.2 cm) tall cup fits on top of the drip tray.

It is larger than most Keurig Single-Serve coffee makers so it takes up a bit more countertop space.

Or will you put up with the hassle of storing it after each use so that you have room on your countertop for other appliances?
