    FAQS :

    Can conventional k-cups be used in the Keurig 2.0?

    While checking their current prices, I noted that SF Bay had written "Now you can use any 1.0 cup in your 2.0 brewer." In my 550, I tried one of their K-Cups and it worked perfectly.

    Is it possible to use vue cups with this machine?

    Yes, it is correct. Vue-style pods, as long as they're V2.0 Vue pods, will operate in the 2.0 brewer. However, they must be 2.0 pods, which applies to both Vue and K-Cup style pods. They must be 2.0 pods to work, but if they are V2.0 pods, both styles work nicely. Use up any older V1.0 pods before investing in a 2.0 brewer.

    How long does a cup of coffee take to brew? How long does it take to brew a four-cup carafe of coffee?

    Answer: A few minutes; it feels a little longer than the old style's premium version. It starts with a warmup screen that rotates through. I've only done one caraf so far, and it took me less than 5 minutes. It's quicker than my conventional coffee maker. Please keep in mind that you can only use green mountain kcups. Nearly 70% of the kcups in my local store won't work with 2.0 unless they're hacked.

    Is it true that the 2.0 doesn't brew a 12 oz. travel mug size despite its 9 size options? What went wrong? Is it now customary to brew two 6-ounce cups?

    Answer: Keurig is realigning a number of its product lines with the Keurig 2.0 systems. Essentially, the newer Vue system has been combined with the older K-cup systems. The Vue brewers came with Vue cups, which were designed to brew greater amounts of coffee. The Vue technology did not limit the amount of beverage that may be brewed in a Vue cup. You can brew as little as 6oz and as much as 18oz. They did, however, sell two physical sizes of Vue cups: one for conventional coffee amounts (6 to 10 oz.) and another for big mugs and travel mugs (12 to 18 oz.). I've noticed that depending on the K-cup or Vue cup used, the Keurige 2.0 system is a little more discriminating in terms of the liquid volume it produces. When using a K-cup, you have the option of brewing 6, 8, or 10 oz. If you're using a normal Vue cup, it also comes in 6, 8, and 10 oz sizes. If you're using a Vue travel mug, the volume available is the bigger 12 - 18 oz. If you're using a K-carafe pack (which is essentially a very large Vue cup), the system offers brewing quantities of 2-3 cup, 3-4 cup, and 4-5 cup. When making a carafe, I'm thinking the cup capacity is measured as a conventional 8 oz volume. So, to prepare a huge quantity of coffee for a travel mug, I recommend getting the Vue cups in the travel mug size. You'd have to process two 6oz cups otherwise. I had the Vue before Keurig 2.0 and can attest that the bigger Vue cup made for travel cups makes a fantastic cup of coffee.

    On its High Temp option, the new K575 maintains a brew temperature of 160 degrees. It isn't warm enough. Is this a problem for anybody else?

    Answer: To get our brewed coffee/tea to the temperature we desire, we just microwave it for 15 seconds. We don't have to wave the tea since it's usually hotter. For us, this isn't a deal breaker. Since 2005, we've had a Keurig maker. We recently purchased the K575 model and are really pleased with it. When compared to buying 'fancy' coffee, a k-cup is a bargain. We'd have to travel to Starbucks for a 12oz cup of ordinary coffee, which costs $1.85. I'm aware that it's two ounces more than my Keurig cup, which holds ten ounces. Plus, in the afternoons, we normally drink a cup of tea or chai. We no longer commute because I no longer work and my husband works from home, so we can use our Keurig whenever we want.

    Is this plastic or stainless steel?
