The holiday season is here—so you're likely looking for some extra caffeine to help get you through gift shopping, party planning, and feast cooking. Whether you need a little or a lot, get ahead of the game by picking up a sophisticated Keurig from Target that can do both.
The Keurig K-Duo Single-Serve & Carafe Coffee Maker is a dual-function machine that can serve a variety of coffee-drinking preferences. Not only can it make a single cup of coffee, which Keurigs are known best for, but it can also use grounds to brew up to 12 cups at once in its accompanying glass pot complete with heating plate.
To make things easy, both functions share a 60-ounce removable water reservoir. And for those who like their coffee extra strong, this Keurig comes equipped with a "strong brew" button for a bolder, more intense single cup. Basically, this coffee maker has it all.

If you're heading to work before anyone else is up, you can pop a K-Cup pod of your favorite roast into the K-Duo and choose your size: 6, 8, 10, or 12 ounces. Or, if you're serving after-dinner coffee to a crowd, add ground coffee to the machine (either store-bought or freshly ground) and brew a 6-, 8-, 10-, or 12-cup carafe.
Like with most traditional coffee makers—that is, ones without Keurigs attached—you can program the K-Duo to brew a carafe up to 24 hours in advance. Plus, to minimize drips (and wasted coffee), you can pause the coffee maker for 20 seconds mid-brew to pull out the carafe and pour a piping-hot cup.
Target shoppers can't get enough of this coffee pot, which has earned more than 1,500 five-star ratings. Most, unsurprisingly, are impressed by its versatility; one customer said it's "great for any occasion," like "enjoying a lazy day in or getting together with friends. This has got you covered."
Pick up the Keurig K-Duo Coffee Maker at Target—if your house doesn't need a new coffee maker, then consider getting one as a gift.
