Can We Help You Find The Right Keurig For You?
I need help finding the best model for my use.
No, thanks. I prefer to browse all models and decide for myself.
We’ve recently reviewed the new Keurig 2.0 single serve brewers, talked about their features and how each model compares to the other. Now the big question is, should you buy the Keurig 2.0 system just because it’s the newer version or should you stick to the old Keurig system?
To help you with your answer, let’s list the differences between the old and new version of Keurig:

If you’re new to the world of Keurig, I can say you’re pretty safe to buy the new Keurig 2.0 system. Since you don’t have any existing K-Cups laying around, you won’t be as mad about not being able to use them anymore as existing Keurig users. If you’re looking to upgrade the current Keurig system you have, have a big stash of K-Cups that you still want to use, then you’re better off upgrading to one of the older system Keurig machines, which should allow you to use your current K-Cups without any issues.
Apparently, some people have figured out a solution to use any K-Cup with the new 2.0 Keurigs. Have a look at this video:
To be honest, I do not recommend you follow this method even if it works 100% and here’s why: The idea of a Keurig machine, or any single-serve coffee machine for that matter, is convenience. You want to pop in a pod, hit a button and get your coffee. With this hack, you’ll be spending a few minutes doing a little crafts project to get the old K-Cup to work with the new machine, which will get tiring over time. If you insist on using the older K-cups, then simply do not upgrade to the Keurig 2.0. You can still get a great Keurig machine from the previous line that you can use with all ease and convenience to get the truly convenience push-button experience.
Here are some previous Keurig models you can consider:
a Keurig 2.0 Brewer is the only Keurig that can brew both single cup servings as well a full carafe. The machine is available in a number of models that vary in sizes, so you can choose the right one for your needs.
Keurig K55 is an excellent choice for single cup brewing with a large 48 oz reservoir. Perfect for brewing many cups without the need to refill.
Keurig K15 is perfect for a single user who needs something compact. It has no water reservoir, instead you add a fresh cup of water for every brew. It's very small in size in comparison to other Keurigs.
