An upgrade to the B50 series, the B66 offers an additional 10 oz brew size and a silver lid with the same LCD messaging center and 48 oz reservoir. Now discontinued, check out the new-and-improve K-Classic instead.

Keurig B66 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 B66 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 B66 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 B66 becoming the K66.

Keurig discontinued the K66 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
Cons
  • Discontinued model
  • Max 48 oz water reservoir is relatively small (average at best)
  • No Strength or Temp Control

Is the Keurig B66 for you?

Is Keurig B66 for you?

The Keurig B66 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 B66'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 V1255

Keurig Vue V1255
Overall Rating: 83
The Vue V1200 and identical Vue V1255 were Keurig's revolutionary commercial brewers with the ability to brew specialty beverages and 18 oz coffees. Now discontinued, check out the K1500 for a similar commercial model.

Keurig Rivo

Keurig Rivo
Overall Rating: 80
Keurig's first machine designed to brew lattes and cappuccinos, the Rivo has since been discontinued and replaced by the Keurig K-Cafe and K-Latte. We'd go with one of those, but you can still find the Rivo online.

Keurig K350

Keurig K350
Overall Rating: 85
One of our favorite values, Keurig 2.0 K300 series brewers are a big jump up from their K200 counterparts with a 60 oz reservoir, Temp Control, and more. Now discontinued, we recommend the Keurig K-Duo instead.

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!
