Although the Keurig 2.0 brewer is a great coffee maker, many of Keurig’s users hated the update for many reasons:
- It didn’t allow them to use their old K-Cups.
- It doesn’t allow them to use a refillable K-Cup like the old Keurig machines.

Best Keurig 2.0 Hacks:
The Difference Between Old and New K-Cups:
Before we get into the hacks, it’s useful to understand the difference between the old and new K-Cups. As you can see in the photo above, the new K-Cups have this white label at the rim of the pod, which the machine looks for when you insert them. If you interest the old K-Cup, which doesn’t have that white label, you’ll get an error message and the machine will not brew the pod.
So to fix this issue, these hacks basically require you to remove that white label from a used K-Cup and attach it to the old style K-Cup. This way, you give the machine that label its looking for and you get the coffee you want.
