Is a Small Cup of Keurig Stronger?

The smaller the cup of single-serve Keurig coffee, the stronger and more flavorful brew it will produce. Smaller cups will also contain more caffeine. This is because larger cups are more concentrated. However, models with multi-stream technology spread water more evenly over the coffee grounds, resulting in more flavorful beverages.
