The Bottom Line
Once Keurig's most acclaimed brewer, the now-discontinued B71 is still a formidable model with a 72 oz reservoir, Temp Control, and 4 brew sizes from 4-10 oz. The B71 isn't a bad buy, but we recommend the new K-Elite instead.

Keurig B75 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.)

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 B75 is the exact same machine. The only difference? The B75 comes with a water filter starter kit.

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:

  • Concentrated 4 oz serving size (can be used for iced beverages)
  • Larger 72 oz water reservoir (60 oz on B60 series brewers)
  • Temp Control

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.

Pros
  • No pod-scanning technology so brews both licensed and unlicensed K-Cup pods
  • Foolproof to use
  • Temp Control setting
  • Ability to program your favorite brew size
Cons
  • Discontinued model
  • Max 10 oz brew size (12 oz on the K75 and new Keurig models)
  • No Strength Control setting
  • Power button inconveniently located on back of machine

Is the Keurig B75 for you?

Is Keurig B75 for you?

The B75 Platinum was a revolutionary brewer in its heyday, and it's still a solid option if you can find one at a good price. However, it does lack two features that are pretty close to standard on Keurig's newest line of brewers: a 12 oz brew size and Strength Control for stronger cups.

You can get the 12 oz brew size by going with the K75 (or any other K70 Platinum or Platinum Plus brewer).

If you're looking for something currently in production and built with Keurig's newest brewing system and parts, check out the K-Elite with everything the B75 has (plus a few extras):

  • 5 brew sizes from 4-12 oz
  • 75 oz reservoir
  • Strength and Temp Controls
  • Hot Water and Iced Beverage settings
  • High Altitude setting
  • Sleek, durable, brushed metal exterior

Just like the B70/K70 series once were Keurig's best, today the K-Elite holds that crown and it's our pick for the best Keurig home brewer.

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!
