Keurig K-Select Overview

The K-Select is the best combination of cost and feature-rich performance among Keurig's new line of brewers, making it our pick for the best bang-for-your-buck K-Cup brewer.

What makes the K-Select the Goldilocks of single-serve coffee makers?

  • It features the 12 oz brew size, Strength Control, and High Altitude settings not found on the K-Classic
  • It's priced much more affordably than the K-Elite

Of course, the K-Elite does have several upgraded features not found on the K-Select, such as a larger 75 oz reservoir, Temp Control, Iced Coffee, and Hot Water Only settings, but most people don't need those extras.

So why pay up for them?

Pros
  • Includes Keurig's upgraded system for richer coffee and quieter brewing
  • No pod-scanning technology so brews both licensed and unlicensed K-Cup pods
  • Strength Control and High Altitude settings
Cons
  • Mediocre 52 oz water reservoir
  • Doesn't have a Temp Control setting
  • Doesn't come with a water filter kit

Is the Keurig K-Select for you?

Is Keurig K-Select for you?

The Keurig K-Select is well-positioned as the best bang-for-your-buck brewer because it comes with all of the most-used features, specifically the 12 oz brew size, Strength Control, and High Altitude settings.

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

If you're looking for something more feature-rich, here are some alternatives:

  • K-Elite: 75 oz reservoir with 5 brew sizes from 4-12 oz and both Strength and Temp Control
  • 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

Keurig K-Latte

Keurig K-Latte
Overall Rating: 82
The simpler of Keurig's two specialty beverage brewers, the K-Latte is a compact, entry-level way to enjoy both coffees and lattes from the comfort of your own home. (And without paying the Starbucks tax.)

Keurig K300

Keurig K300
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.

Keurig K545

Keurig K545
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.

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!
