A Keurig coffee maker is a modern miracle. A long and complicated beer production process is not required; just fill the Keurig water tank with water, insert your Keurig mug, and have a hot mug made from your favorite coffee in a minute.
This is, of course, how it happens when the machine is running. When it doesn’t work, for example when the Keurig water pump is not pumping, you have a problem.
