Keurig 2.0 Carafe Pods Discontinued. Here’s a Workaround…

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 does not offer any K-Carafe pods anymore.

If you’re looking for a Keurig machine that will also make a carafe, then have a look at the Keurig Duo and Duo Plus machines. An alternative pick would be Ninja’s DualBrew.

Where Can I Buy K-Carafe Pods?

K-Carafe Pods are no longer available as of 2022. Instead, you can use a refillable K-Carafe pod and use your own ground coffee instead of buying the pods.

It’s a huge disappointment that Keurig has ditched the entire Keurig 2.0 line without a notice. If you want to brew a carafe, a refillable filter pod is your savoir.

Same goes for K-Mug Pods. These have been discontinued and unfortunately, there is not even refillable pods for them.

How To Use K-Carafe Reusable Pods

What Kind of Coffee Ground to use?

You’ll want to use medium ground coffee, using coarse or fine ground won’t work. It will most likely either splatter or produce a bad cup.

How To Use the Pod?

If you are going to use the pod I linked to above, and I believe most of them work the same way anyways, it’s quite simple.

Fill the pod with ground coffee to the top. Place it just like you would with a regular pod. Brew as usual!

It is very important that you don’t use fine grounds as it would cause the coffee to splatter every where.

By the way, you can use the pod to make anything you like from coffee, tea to hot chocolate!

Does Keurig Make Their Own Refillable K-Carafe Pods?

No, while they have the My K-Cup refillable pod for regular size mugs, up to 12 oz, they never made a pod that you can use for carafe brewing. All K-Carafe refillable pods are made by third party brands and not directly affiliated with Keurig.

What Is Keurig 2.0 K-Carafe Pod?

If you’re an owner of a Keurig 2.0 coffee machine, then you already know that one of the 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. They are large in size, and 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?

Identify K Carafe Pod

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.

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 Use Any Carafe with a Keurig 2.0?

If for any reason you need to replace your Keurig 2.0 carafe, you can’t simply replace it with any carafe. It has to be its own carafe so it fits perfectly in place. Keurig’s carafe has a safety feature that locks into place when you use it. Without it, the carafe brew option won’t activate.
