LEAN coffee?

How can this coffee maker be LEAN you ask? For one simple reason… The water is “hard piped” in. We will never again need to pull off the container, bring it to the sink, and fill it up again!The amount of time this saves, is incredible! Especially for a house full of coffee drinkers!


Attributes of Lean/Waste:

  • Motion – Motions no longer used are walking the water reservoir from under the coffee maker to the sink, standing there waiting to fill it, then again walking it back to the coffee maker & putting it back in place.
  • Waiting – This saves an easy 2 minutes per day of re-filling! (although it seems like so much more…)
  • Transportation – A hard piped coffee maker eliminates the transportation between the sink and the machine
  • Extra-Processing – Just count all the steps that were eliminated in this process, so much more time to just enjoy your cup of coffee!



We used Kuerig model 150-P
Although this is a commercial grade coffee machine, don’t let anyone tell you can’t put it in your house! Also dont forget to add a good pre-filter system, the minerals in the water are no good for the machine.

  1. First of all I would like to say great blog! I had a quick question in which
    I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear
    your thoughts before writing. I have had a
    tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out.

    I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the
    first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost simply just trying to figure out how to
    begin. Any recommendations or tips? Thanks!
