Keeping Up With Keurig 2.0 Is Easier Than You Think

By now, you’ve heard of — or may have purchased — Keurig’s new 2.0 brewing system. The machine is touted as a first of its kind, and can brew both a single cup serving, and a four-cup carafe of coffee using a Keurig® K-Carafe Pack.

And whether you’re using an older Keurig model, or the new Keurig 2.0 series, all your favorite K-Cup Pods sold at are compatible! So rest assured — that fresh box of K-Cup Coffee will be brewing in no time.

How Do I Identify Keurig 2.o Compatible K-Cups?

To identify Keurig 2.0 compatible K-Cups, look for the “Keurig Brewed” seal printed on a ring around the outer edge of the K-Cup. Keurig first rolled these changes out in early 2014. For boxes, similarly, you’ll note the symbol designating “For Use in All Keurig K-Cup Brewers.”



We’ve also labeled all of our compatible products on with a convenient “Keurig 2.0 Compatible” orange icon. Look for this image in the Description box when shopping.


While the previous Keurig brewers take coffee pods that work with many different brands, the Keurig 2.0 machine is RFID-limited, meaning only items with a Keurig-branded code will work.

Do the New K-Cups Work in the Old Machines?

The short answer: Yes. All Keurig branded packs will work as usual in the older brewers. Packs that do not have the new “Keurig Brewed” lids (pictured above) will not work in the Keurig 2.0 machines. The best thing to keep in mind is to look for the “Keurig Brewed” seal. This seal ensures the K-Cup can be brewed in older brewers as well as the Keurig 2.0 machine.

Why Don’t the Old K-Cups Work in the New Machine?

The Keurig 2.0 machine reads each lid to identify 2.0-compatible brands to ensure the perfect cup of coffee each time. The Keurig 2.0 will only function with Keurig brand packs, which have been specifically designed to work with the Keurig 2.0 Brewing Technology.

  1. When will you be selling the K-Carafe packs?

    • Hi Jason, we don’t have a firm timetable on the K-Carafe packs right now but if that changes, we’ll be sure to make an announcement!

  2. K-Cup Coffee in Chicago

    The main thing I don’t like about the 2.0 is that it does not take reusable K-Cup cartridges anymore.

    I’m on my third 2.0 and am totally dissatisfied!
    1. The drip tray (all three pots)does not stay in place—YES I do know how to put it in position.
    2. The pot spits coffee outside the cup onto the counter, again all three.
    3. There is no temp control setting.
    4. The fresh brewed coffee (into a pre-warmed mug)is no warmer than horse-piss.
    5. At the 10oz setting I get7 to 9 oz cups measured in a certified measuring container.

    Keurig has dropped it in the dirt and danced on it on this new pot. They went to market with a product that was full of bugs and they had to know it.

    • The problem with the 2.0 is the grocer has no idea of the differences of the pods. They sell hundreds of pods but not the 2.0 compatible pods. I explained which pods to order,he looked at me like I was speaking a foreign language.

  4. Ordered the simple k-cups and was sent cups that did not fit my brewer, and no way could I make them. Web site was not user frendly, customer service does not answer, sent them back for a 20. 00 shipping charge to me for the company’s mistake. Will never use this site again.

  5. Where can I buy the 2.0 coffee pods. I just purchase the pot.

  6. Return it now!

  7. My 2.0 is suppose to make carafes but there is no icon for it only up to a 10 ounce option am i missing something

  8. Jennifer, there is no carafe option as such. You have to pull down the sliding lever at the bottom of the inner machine where you insert a regukar k-cup. This opens a little grove to inser a larger k-carafe cup to make a pot of coffee. Then you simply push the brew button. I would not waste time ir money doing this option was poorly designed and virtually useless. The coffee pot that comes with machine is not insulated and unless you drink to pot quickly, the coffee gets cold. Also, very hard to find k-carafe cups anywhere. Nice idea but badly executed. No one must have tested these machines before they went to market, at least not on the public.

    Do you make a pod to use canned coffee in for your 2.0 my one for the old machine dose not work don’t want to have to buy a Mr Coffee to us up my canned coffee !!!!
