Keurig B150 Overview

Since the B150 has been discontinued, we'll review the almost identical K150 in this space instead.

A heavy-duty brewer with a color interface and slick silver exterior, the K150 is one of the more attractive Keurig coffee makers available.

It's UL commercial listed with a massive 90 oz water reservoir, but it isn't compatible with direct water line plumbing.

For that, you want the K150P (the "P" stands for plumbing).

The interactive color touch display is a great feature, allowing you to select brew temperature up or down in 1°F increments from 188°F-198°F. You can also set the brewer to start or turn off at given times and adjust both the brew size and the display language.

And like all of Keurig's commercial brewers, the K150 isn't compatible with the My K-Cup reusable assembly.

Keurig advertises this model as being for both home and commercial use, and they're absolutely right. It's compact and affordable enough to be your everyday home coffee maker, and its straightforward color touch display makes it simple enough to be a low-maintenance, customer-facing brewer.

Pros
  • UL Commercial listed
  • No pod-scanning technology so brews both licensed and unlicensed K-Cup pods
  • Massive 90 oz water reservoir
  • Direct water line plumbing compatible
Cons
  • Discontinued model
  • Not compatible with direct water line plumbing
  • No Brew Strength feature
  • Doesn't brew cappuccinos or lattes

Is the Keurig B150 for you?

Is Keurig B150 for you?

In place of the discontinued (and hard-to-find) B150, you'll want to look for the K150.

It's an excellent commercial brewer for small and medium settings.

With 5 brew sizes from 4-12 oz and Temp Control functionality controlled by an intuitive user interface, the only real drawback of this brewer is its lack of direct water line compatibility.

If you need that, go with the K150P.

If you need a more powerful brewer for higher-throughout environments, check out the K3500. It requires direct water line plumbing (there's no reservoir to refill), but it has dual internal tanks for rapid back-to-back brewing and auto-eject pod functionality with a spent pod compartment that fits 35-40 used K-Cups.

One thing your customers may crave that the K150, K150P, and K3500 don't offer is the ability to brew specialty beverages. For that, check out the K4000 Cafe.

I'm Bryan but most people know me as The Coffee Maven. I grew up outside Boston, Massachusetts and received my Bachelor's degree in Biochemistry from Providence College. My first introduction to coffee was during my college days, when I used it as a source of caffeine to fuel late-night study sessions, but soon I became obsessed with the chemistry of coffee. How did changes to water temperature or contact time affect its taste? Why do beans from Africa taste fruity while beans from Indonesia taste spicy? I launched The Coffee Maven in February 2017 to explore these questions and help others brew their perfect cup. Welcome to my site, and thanks for reading!
