UPDATE JAN 2020:
Before you start reading this post, it is important to note that it is now nearly impossible to find K-Carafe pods, and if any, they’re available at an increased price. Even Keurig’s official site only offers ONE type of K-Carafe pods, which is not enough.
What Is a K-Carafe Pod?
If you’re an owner of a Keurig 2.0 coffee machine, then you already know that one of the new things about it is that it can brew a carafe. K-Carafe pods are just like K-Cup pods, but they’re made especially for brewing a carafe serving. K-Carafe pods are designed to contain more coffee ground so your brewed carafe serving is strong and delicious and not being watered down.
How Do I know Which Pod Is For a Carafe?
Each pod for Keurig 2.0 has an icon that identifies if it’s for a cup, mug or carafe. In the case of a K-Carafe, like pictured above, you’ll notice the icon of a carafe to indicate that it’s a K-Carafe pod.
Where Can I Buy K-Carafe Pods?
K-Carafe pods are widely available in major stores (Walmart, Best Buy, Bed Bath and Beyond, Costco… ) or online. If you prefer to purchase online, you can buy them directly from Keurig’s website or Amazon.
This K-Carafe variety pack includes three different coffee blends: Donut House Coffee, Green Mountain’s French Roast and Green Mountain’s French Vanilla.
Newman’s Special Blend is a blend of Fairtrade certified and USDA Organic coffee. This blend is a mix of medium and dark roast coffee.
This variety pack contains a mix of 10 different coffee blends, including flavored coffee and no decaf.
What Is The Difference Between a K-Carafe and K-Cup?
This is what a K-Cup looks like. It looks the same as a K-Carafe for the most part. But a K-Cup contains enough coffee ground to brew only a cup of coffee. While a K-Carafe contains enough coffee ground to brew a carafe of 4 cups. That’s the only difference between them.
How Many Ounces Does a K-Carafe Make?
The maximum you can get out of a K-Carafe is 30 ounces. Keurig’s carafe has the capacity of 32 oz.
Can You Reuse a K-Carafe Pod?
No, neither a K-carafe or K-cup pod are reusable.
Is There a Refillable K-Carafe Pod?
Yes, absolutely! You can buy a refillable K-Carafe filter, and that can be reused as many times as you like!
K-Carafe vs. Keurig Vue, Are They The Same?
If you’re familiar with Keurig’s Vue system, you might be wondering if their pods will work with a Keuirg 2.0 or vice versa, since they do look the same. According to Keurig’s website, Vue pods will work in Keurig 2.0 machines, however, they are not available in a carafe size. But they’ll work for brewing a single cup.
