Let’s Talk Coffee: Keurig 2.0 Review

Last month I received the Keurig K550 2.0 Brewer to review.  Let me first say that this would be my 3rd Keurig over the past 2 plus years.  Not because anything was wrong with them, but because I have been lucky to have a few upgrades thanks to doing what I do.  So it’s important to say I was already a Keurig fan when I received the latest coffee maker that has enough new features to get the smallest of coffee fans excited.


Yay! Look what JUST arrived! #HelloKeurig, so nice to meet you!

Here’s the Keurig description for you, right off their site.  Scroll down to see what I think of the new Keurig 2.0.


Say Hello to the Keurig® 2.0 K550 Brewing System — the first Keurig system that features revolutionary Keurig 2.0 Brewing Technology™ which is designed to read the lid of each K-Cup™ or K-Carafe™ pack to brew the perfect beverage every time.  The K550 brewer allows you to brew a 4-cup carafe with the same ease and convenience of brewing a single-serve cup — all at the touch of a button.  It’s so smart, and so simple!  The brewer has other great features including an extra large 80 ounce water reservoir, 2.8 inch color touch display, programmable clock, an auto brew option and a strength control setting for brewing bolder coffee.  There’s even a separate setting for hot cocoa and other specialty beverages like lattes and mochas.  The K550 model also has a customizable night light in the water reservoir and offers hot water on demand.  So many options to choose from — not at all like a typical coffee maker.




This makes me so happy.  Maleficent, meet @keurig 2.0 – you will be great friends.  #HelloKeurig View on Instagram

Choose from over 250 varieties of coffee, tea and specialty beverages — including iced beverages — from 40 brands you know and love.  Just look for the Keurig Brewed® seal on your favorite K-Cup pack and K-Carafe pack varieties.

The Keurig 2.0 K550 Brewing System includes a Keurig™ Carafe, a 2.0 Water Filter Starter Kit with one filter, and K-Cup® and K-Carafe™ packs to get you started.


Let’s Talk Coffee: Keurig 2.0 Review

I do like having the option of having the carafe.  I do.  But it isn’t practical for me all of the time.  So having the option of both is spectacular.  We have used the carafe a few times in the morning when we both are having coffee at the same time.  In the end we realized it does save a little on the K-cups if you do make a carafe.  Saving money is always a good thing.



Is nice to have the option of making a pot.  #HelloKeurig

The touch screen is pretty cool, and having the options to have your water glow different colors is cool.  I have had my water both green and blue.  I have also played with the display screen options.  One of the things, going back to the carafe, not that it takes very long to brew a pot of coffee, but if you are one of those people that like to have a pot ready, Keurig 2.0 has the ability to set a timer to make your pot or cup!  Kinda nice isn’t it?  IMG_9713 I guess since I truly love the machine the one thing that is a bit of a bummer is that not all K-Cups are compatible with the new brewer.  You have to look for the white outer ring, and the black Keurig Brewed® seal on the lid.  On K-Carafe™ packs, look for the dark rim and the noticeable green dot on the lid.  So if you have a favorite brand, then you would have to consider if you are willing to try one that is compatible.  Good thing there are 250+ varieties. 40+ brands to shop from!  For more information go to Keurig’s website.  And make sure to check out some great photos on the #HelloKeurig on all social media platforms.

*I received a Keurig 550 2.0 Brewer in exchange for social media coverage from Influenster and Keurig.  I did not have to do a blog post, but I truly love my new brewer and decided to share.  Some links on this page maybe affiliate links.  As always, all opinions are my own.
