The Bottom Line

With a digital LCD display, 60 oz reservoir, and Temp Control, the K66 Special Edition was the K-Cup giant's "mid-luxury" model. Now discontinued, we recommend you check out the K-Select instead.

Keurig K66 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.

Pros

  • No pod-scanning technology so brews both licensed and unlicensed K-Cup pods
  • Foolproof to use
  • Comes with Temp Control setting
  • Blue backlit LCD screen

Cons

  • Discontinued model
  • Can't find it anywhere

Is the Keurig K66 for you?

Is Keurig K66 for you?

A discontinued model and one of Keurig's first brewers with an LCD display, the K66 introduced several new features that the company has gotten better at making. Even if you could find a K66 brewer for sale somewhere, there just isn't a good reason to buy it.

(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 B145 OfficePRO

Keurig B145 OfficePRO
Overall Rating: 83
Keurig's most basic office model, the UL Commercial listed B145 has an underwhelming 48 oz reservoir and max 10 oz brew size, but the Drain Brewer function is handy and its sturdy build makes it great for heavy use.

Keurig B3000SE

Keurig B3000SE
Overall Rating: 85
Keurig's original, fully self-service commercial machine, the B3000SE is a direct water line brewer with an intuitive LCD touch screen and auto-eject pod functionality. However, we recommend the new-and-improved K3500.
