The Bottom Line

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 K560

Keurig K560
Overall Rating: 88
The crown jewel of the Keurig 2.0 pod-scanning system, feature-rich K500 series brewers offer 11 brew sizes (up to 30 oz) and massive 80 oz reservoir. Now discontinued, we recommend the Keurig K-Duo Plus instead.

Keurig K-Duo Essentials

Keurig K-Duo Essentials
Overall Rating: 86
A replacement for the discontinued K200-K575 brewers, the K-Duo brews both single K-Cups and full 60 oz carafes with the reusable Gold Tone filter. This is the most basic of 3 K-Duo models and includes just the Essentials.

Keurig K-Mini Plus

Keurig K-Mini Plus
Overall Rating: 86
Keurig's slimmest brewer, the K-Mini Plus is just like the K-Mini (4.5" wide and refill before each use) but adds several worthy upgrades. Most notably, a Strength Control setting and the 12 oz reservoir is removable.
