7 Reasons you should buy a Keurig 2.0


Who doesn’t love a good quick cup of coffee in the morning. If espresso’s aren’t yout thing then chances are you own a Keurig single serve coffee machine. Keurig just revamped the first generation machines with newer and better features. Cehck out our list of the top seven reasons you should buy the new Keurig 2.0, #helllokeurig

1.  Bigger K-cups and a Carafe

Okay if you are like me you might be wondering what in the world is a Carafe? Simply put it is a small coffee pot, or at least Keurig’s version of one. Gone are the days of having to brew just a single cup, Keurig now makes lager K cups just for the Carafe. They give you the option to make 3 cups or up to 5 cups.

Not only can you use the carafe to make an actual pot of coffee it is insulated to keep your delicious coffee warm and ready for the next cup. It even comes with a removable top for easy pouring and cleaning

2.  The Keurig 2.0 is Quieter than Ever

The one downside of our old Keurig is how loud it is. Man that thing was loud, you could here all the way across the house. The Keurig 2.0 has gotten rid of that super loud hissing noise the machine makes when the water tank empties at the end of making a cup. It has replaced it with a newer much quieter process. This is espeacially important if you are up before the rest of the house like me, now you can enjoy the fresh aroma of a cup of coffee without all the noise.

3.  Bigger Better Display that is Super Easy to Use 

The fact that the new Keurig 2.0 is even easier to use than before, gives it a huge edge over the competiion. The large color digital display with touch screen shows you instructions on exactly how to use single server coffee machine.

4.  Larger Water Reservoir

The Tank on the Keurig has grown, how cute. The water reservoir now measures a whopping 80oz, which means it can now hold even more water than before. If you make one 12oz coffee cup a day the tank will last you almost a week before it needs to be refilled. Even better is now it has an option for a flip top lid or the old detachable lid. Glad they listened on that one, I always had trouble with the old lid.

5.  Your Coffee, Your way

Have you ever waken up really tired and wanted a strong cup of coffee versus your normal cup of coffee. Something to give you a kick in the rear and get your motor running. Well guess what, one of the many new options they have added is brew strength. Get that extra boost you’ve always wanted. Even better is now that the keurig accepts different sized k-cups, the machine can automatically detect which size k-cup you put in the machine and only give you brewing options for that size of drink. How cool is that.

6.  Yes, They added a Timer

Wake up with Coffee ready when you are, they added a Timer to the Keurig 2.0. Just set the timer the night before to the exact time you want the machine to start brewing the next day and tada. Wake up with a hot fresh cup of coffee.

7.  Pick a color any color

The Keurig 2.0 coffee machine comes in a variety of colors and sizes to choose from. If that wasn’t enough now you can change the wallpaper and design on the touch screen to fit you and your lifestyle. They even added a light in the water tank that can change colors, pretty neat huh.

One thing to becareful of …. The K-cup 2.0 vs 1.0

The new Keurig 2.0 only reads the specific label sensor on top of the keurig brewed certified cups. Don’t worry though, with over 50 different brands of of k-cups and over 275 and counting bevrerage varieties of approved K-cups you have plenty of choices. All k-cups manufactured after July of 2014 have been made with the appropriate label to fit the Keurig 2.0. However if you put an old K-cup in your new machine it will tell you it can’t make your cup of coffee, rumors are true. But if you are looking to use non k-cups ther are already hacks and ways around this on the web. Just head over to pinterest and search keurig 2.0 hacks.

Overall we really like the new Keurig 2.0 when compared to the old keurig and I hope you found this post helpful. The new machine is way easier to use and gives you a slew of options to shcoose from when making your perfect cup of coffee. Make sure you check out the wide selection of Keurig 2.0 single serve coffee machines they offer, if I were you I would pick one with a carafe.
