Op here I actually don't buy the kcups I buy regular coffee and a pod with a washable filter...both cheaper and environmentally friendly. And the keurig was given to me so never actually bought the machine and I never read up on the maintenance instructions like I should've, which I acknowledge is my fault. But I put milk and sugar in my coffee so it never actually tasted bad to me. And the whole machine is black so I couldn't see the mold growing in it. But we've since took the keurig apart (literally) and thoroughly washed and sanitized it and we installed a water filter on it.

For your next coffee machine, may I suggest a filter and a filter holder? No, seriously. It takes as much time to prepare coffee with this than with a Keurig, it's cheaper than a Keurig, the coffee tastes better, there are much more varieties than with a Keurig, it's waaaay easier to wash (it goes entirely in the dishwasher) and the environment will be so happy it will give you a big smooch of health.

You have to wash out the water reservoir at least twice a week...and let it air dry. It get's nasty if left unwashed. Also, use distilled water to prevent unhealthy bacteria. It won't hurt you! Good luck!

Unlikely, the heat from the water would likely kill anything that could make you sick. But it's still gross. Get a Chemex and you'll see everything. And it's cheaper and better.

Seriously Keurig makes coffee maker cleaner, specially formulated to run through the machine via the water tank..... you can purchase on their web site and Kohls.
