The Bottom Line

An upgrade to the B50 series, the B65 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 B65 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 B65 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 B65 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 B65 becoming the K65.

Keurig discontinued the K65 several years back, and today they have moved to their newest line of brewers with the K-Classic the closest thing to the B65/K65.

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 B65 for you?

Is Keurig B65 for you?

The Keurig B65 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 B65'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 Vue V700

Keurig Vue V700
Overall Rating: 81
A revolutionary series from Keurig, the K-Vue introduced K-Vue pods for bigger, hotter coffees. Today, all Vue brewers are discontinued. For a versatile brewer with all the extras, check out the K-Elite.

Keurig K-Select

Keurig K-Select
Overall Rating: 87
The K-Select is Keurig's best bang-for-your-buck brewer, offering several features not found on the K-Classic and without the top-tier price tag of the K-Elite. Value-minded Keurig lovers, you can stop looking.

Keurig K-Slim

Keurig K-Slim
Overall Rating: 86
Keurig's largest compact brewer, the 4.8" K-Slim keeps the narrow width of the K-Mini and K-Mini Plus but offers a relatively massive 46 oz water reservoir and a removable drip tray accommodating mugs up to 7" tall.
