Keurig K-Elite Overview

Stand back, Keurig lovers. Your favorite purveyor of pod-coffee convenience has gone all-out with their best K-Cup brewer yet: the K-Elite.

Equipped with a 75 oz water reservoir and encased in a modern brushed metal exterior, the K-Elite looks the part of a premium coffee maker.

It acts like it, too.

We've already named the K-Select our pick for best bang-for-your-buck Keurig because of its combination of price and performance.

But when you pit the K-Select vs the K-Elite feature-by-feature, there's no doubt which is Keurig's best model.

Aside from the reservoir size and brushed metal design, here are the K-Elite's other notable advantages:

  • 5 brew sizes from 4-12 oz (K-Select has 4 sizes from 6-12 oz)
  • Iced beverage feature for concentrated coffees
  • Hot Water feature for tea, cocoa, and oatmeal
  • Additional Temperature Control functionality
  • LCD clock display

With the K-Elite, Keurig has taken yet another leap forward in their quest for total pod-based coffee supremacy.

Pros

  • Includes brushed metal finish and Keurig's upgraded system for richer coffee and quieter brewing
  • No pod-scanning technology so brews both licensed and unlicensed K-Cup pods
  • Iced Coffee and Hot Water on Demand settings
  • Very large 75 oz water reservoir
  • Brew Strength and Brew Temp settings

Cons

  • Max 12 oz brew size (only notable because this is Keurig's top-of-the-line model and some machines like the K-Duo can brew 60 oz pots of coffee)
  • Doesn't come with a water filter kit
  • Can't view water level from the front (need to view from side)

Is the Keurig K-Elite for you?

Is Keurig K-Elite for you?

The Keurig K-Elite is the best single-serve coffee maker, bar none. With Iced and Hot Water modes, the K-Elite has all of your beverage needs covered in what's definitely Keurig's most durable design yet.

If you're looking for something more basic, here are some alternatives:

  • K-Mini: 12 oz reservoir in the slimmest, most basic model available
  • K-Compact: 36 oz reservoir with max 10 oz brew size and no other features
  • K-Classic: 48 oz reservoir with max 10 oz brew size and no other features
  • K-Slim: 46 oz reservoir in a slim, 4.8" wide model with a 12 oz brew size but no other features
  • K-Select: 52 oz reservoir with max 12 oz brew size and Strength Control but no Temp Control

If you're looking for a machine that does more than just single-serve coffee, Keurig has 2 other premium systems:

  • K-Duo: 60 oz reservoir with ability to brew 6-12 oz and full 60 oz carafes (Strength Control on K-Duo Plus)
  • K-Cafe: 60 oz reservoir with ability to brew 6-12 oz and lattes/cappuccinos with frothing system

With 10 different brew sizes up to 30 oz, a sizable 70 oz reservoir, and an intuitive color touch display, K400 series brewers made K-Cup coffee easy. Now discontinued, we recommend the Keurig K-Duo Plus instead.

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.
