The Bottom Line

An upgrade to the B50 series, the B60 offers an additional 10 oz brew size with the same LCD messaging center and 48 oz reservoir. Now discontinued, check out the new-and-improve K-Classic instead.

Keurig B60 Overview

Want to know one of the most common Keurig-related questions we're asked?

What's the difference between Keurig's B series and K series brewers?

Answer: Nothing. The switch from B to K was solely a marketing decision as the company realized branding their brewers with a K made more sense. (They're called Keurig, after all.)

The B60 Special Edition is an improvement on Keurig's B50 Signature brewers.

Both offer the LCD messaging center, a first for Keurig, with a 48 oz water reservoir.

What did the B60 add?

A third brew size: 10 oz.

You may also see a few other B6x brewers from Keurig. What makes them different?

  • B60: Base model
  • B65: Base model + water filter starter kit
  • B66: Base model + water filter starter kit + silver-colored brewing lid

Ultimately, all of the B series brewers were discontinued and rebranded as K series brewers with the B60 becoming the K60.

Keurig discontinued the K60 several years back, and today they have moved to their newest line of brewers with the K-Classic the closest thing to the B60/K60.

Pros

  • No pod-scanning technology so brews both licensed and unlicensed K-Cup pods
  • Foolproof to use
  • LCD messaging center
  • Adds 10 oz brew size (compared to B50 brewers)

Cons

  • Discontinued model
  • 48 oz water reservoir is relatively small (average at best)
  • No Strength or Temp Control

Is the Keurig B60 for you?

Is Keurig B60 for you?

The Keurig B60 truly was a Special Edition brewer when it was first released in 2013.

Well, it isn't 2013 anymore. While you can still find B60 brewers on Amazon, eBay, or other online marketplaces, we recommend you go with Keurig's new-and-improved K-Classic.

How does the K-Classic compare?

  • Same 6, 8, and 10 oz brew sizes
  • Same 48 oz water reservoir
  • Same features (no Strength or Temp Controls)
  • No LCD messaging center, using LED indicator lights instead
  • Slightly narrower 9.8" width vs the B60's 10.1"

If it's basically the same thing, what makes the K-Classic new-and-improved?

Feature-wise, nothing. But it's built using brewing technology and parts that are 7 years younger. That means better performance, better reliability, and better (hotter) coffee.

Keurig K-Latte

Keurig K-Latte
Overall Rating: 82
The simpler of Keurig's two specialty beverage brewers, the K-Latte is a compact, entry-level way to enjoy both coffees and lattes from the comfort of your own home. (And without paying the Starbucks tax.)

Keurig K-Duo

Keurig K-Duo
Overall Rating: 87
A replacement for the discontinued K200-K575 brewers, the K-Duo brews both K-Cups and full 60 oz carafes with the reusable Gold Tone filter. This version is better than the K-Duo essentials but falls short of the K-Duo Plus.

Keurig K4000 Cafe

Keurig K4000 Cafe
Overall Rating: 91
Able to brew 4-12 oz coffees and 3 sizes of lattes and cappuccinos, the Keurig K4000 Cafe covers all of your customers' coffee needs. And with direct plumbing compatibility and auto-eject pods, it's easy on you, too.
