With a digital LCD display, 60 oz reservoir, and Temp Control, the K60 Special Edition was the K-Cup giant's "mid-luxury" model. Now discontinued, we recommend you check out the K-Select instead.

Keurig K60 Overview

K60 series models are advertised as Keurig's "mid-luxury" brewers because they offer several luxury upgrades over similar K40, K50, and K70 series models:

  • Blue backlit LCD message center
  • Larger 60 oz water reservoir
  • Temp Control (187-192°F)

Most of these features were pretty revolutionary when the now-discontinued K60 brewers were first released, earning them the "Special Edition" label.

What's the difference between the the various K60 Special Edition brewers?

  • K60: Comes with K-Cup variety pack
  • K65: Comes with K-Cup variety pack and water filter starter kit
  • K66: Honestly, we aren't sure as we can't find this model for sale anywhere

If you're considering a K60 brewer, remember this model has been discontinued. In our Buyer's Guide below, we'll identify a few alternative for you to consider instead.

  • No pod-scanning technology so brews both licensed and unlicensed K-Cup pods
  • Foolproof to use
  • Includes Temp Control and blue backlit LCD message center
  • Comes with K-Cup variety pack
  • Discontinued model

Is the Keurig K60 for you?

Are Keurig K60 for you?

A discontinued model and one of Keurig's first brewers with an LCD display, the K65 introduced several new features that the company has gotten better at making. There's no good reason to buy this model when newer, better models are available.

(Unless you have some emotional attachment to it, maybe because it's the machine your dad used to make a cup of coffee when he finally told you he was proud of you.)

If you're looking for an in-production brewer with the same 60 oz reservoir and brew sizes, check out the K-Select or K-Elite.

If you're digging the LCD message center and want something more than the standard button-only Keurig interface, check out the K575.

Full disclosure: The K575 is also discontinued, but it has the large reservoir you're looking for an an interactive 2.8" XL color touch display.

Keurig K150

Keurig K150
Overall Rating: 83
A sleek, customer-facing UL Commercial listed brewer with a 90 oz reservoir and color touch LCD display, the K150 makes brewing simple for small and medium settings. For direct water line compatibility, check out the K150P.

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.

Keurig K-Select

Keurig K-Select
Overall Rating: 87
The K-Select is Keurig's best bang-for-your-buck brewer, offering several features not found on the K-Classic and without the top-tier price tag of the K-Elite. Value-minded Keurig lovers, you can stop looking.

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!
