The Bottom Line

Once Keurig's most feature-rich brewer, the K75 Platinum brews 4-12 oz coffees with a huge 72 oz reservoir and Temp Control. Now discontinued, take a look at the K-Elite. It offers everything on the K75 and a bunch more.

Keurig K75 Overview

The K70 Platinum series featured Keurig's top-of-the-line home brewers until the Keurig 2.0 brewing system came out.

These brewers expanded your brew size options from 4-12 oz, giving them the largest K-Cup size available to this point, and their 72 oz reservoir meant refilling less often.

While revolutionary at the time, today those features are fairly standard. And these K70 brewers don't even have Strength Control, which was added later on.

K70 Platinum brewers can be tough to find these days, but you may come across 5 different models: K70, K71, K75, K77, and K79. What's the difference?

  • The K70, K71, K75, and K77 are the exact same brewer with different model numbers denoting different included accessories, like K-Cup variety packs, water filter starter kits, and descaling solution.
  • The K79 is a different brewer with everything the other K70s have plus Hot Water and Rinse buttons.

All of these K70 series brewers have been discontinued, so we'll recommend a few in-production alternatives that give you an even better brewing experience.

Pros

  • No pod-scanning technology so brews both licensed and unlicensed K-Cup pods
  • Foolproof to use
  • Very large 72 oz water reservoir

Cons

  • Discontinued model
  • Hard to find
  • No Strength Control

Is the Keurig K75 for you?

Is Keurig K75 for you?

The Keurig K75 Platinum is an impressive, feature-rich K-Cup brewer...if the year is 2014.

In all seriousness, the K75 isn't a bad brewer, and none of its options or features have been discontinued or are no longer supported. If you can find one at a good price, I can think of worse brewers to buy.

But I'd rather stick to something currently in production with Keurig's latest and greatest brewing system.

For that, the K-Elite is your best bet. It shares the same 4-12 oz brewing sizes, large water reservoir (75 oz), and Temp Control, but the K-Elite adds several improvements:

  • Strength Control
  • High Altitude setting
  • Iced and Hot Water modes
  • A sleek, durable, brushed metal exterior
  • Quicker brew speeds

Unfortunately, it doesn't have any type of LCD display, but is that worth buying a brewer that's 6 years old?

Not to us.

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.

A replacement for the discontinued K200-K575 brewers, the K-Duo brews both single K-Cups and full 60 oz carafes with the reusable Gold Tone filter. This is the most basic of 3 K-Duo models and includes just the Essentials.
