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.)
Five years ago, if you were to ask a Keurig user what their favorite K-Cup brewer was, there's a good chance they would have picked the B70 Platinum.
Well, the B71 is the exact same machine.
Keurig's B70 series was a stylish upgrade to the B60 Special Edition series, offering several upgrades that made it the most powerful single-serve brewer of its day:
When Keurig transitioned to their K series brewers, they rebranded the B70 Platinum as the K70 Platinum and added one extra feature: a 12 oz brew size.
All of Keurig's B70 and K70 brewers are the exact same machine with different model numbers identifying different included accessories or colors, with one exception: the B79/K79 Platinum Plus.
The B79/K79 brewer added Hot Water and Rinse buttons so you could use your machine to make tea, cocoa, or oatmeal instead of just coffee.
Today, all of the B70 and K70 series brewers have been discontinued. In the Buyer's Guide section below, we'll offer a pair of alternatives so you can enjoy the many awesome features of the Platinum and Platinum Plus brewers with Keurig's latest and greatest brewing tech.
