The Keurig 2.0 -- Details to Know Before You Buy
I had been considering purchasing the newest version of the Keurig brand coffee maker, the Keurig 2.0. My daughter wanted to upgrade from her original Keurig, so thought it would make a perfect Christmas gift.
In searching online for information and pricing on the Keurig 2.0, I happened across this article on DailyFinance.com.
It's true that the 2.0 version allows the user to brew either a cup or a carafe of coffee -- although the carafe is smaller than the standard size of 8 to 12 cups. What the Keurig 2.0 does not allow a user to do is use the original Keurig K-cups or any other brand of K-cups either. Only the new "Keurig Brewed" cups and packs will work in the 2.0.
How does Keurig assure that? There is a built-in scanner system in the 2.0 model. The user has to scan the cup or pack before making a cup or a carafe of their favorite brew.
The cups you can fill yourself with whatever coffee you prefer will also not work in the 2.0 model.
I'm holding on to my present coffeemaker and shopping for a different gift for my daughter.
