The Bottom Line
The Keurig My K-Cup Universal is the brand-name option designed to fit all Keurig brewers. Unfortunately, you pay for the brand name as it's easily the most expensive reusable K-Cup but doesn't outperform other options.

Keurig My K-Cup Universal Overview

It's not just third-party brands that make reusable K-Cups. Keurig also makes their own versions.

After all, who knows Keurig coffee makers better than Keurig.

But be careful when purchasing a Keurig brand reusable K-Cup, because they sell three different types:

  • Keurig My K-Cup for Keurig 1.0 brewers
  • Keurig 2.0 My K-Cup for Keurig 2.0 brewers
  • Keurig My K-Cup Universal for all brewers, including the new K-Classic Series

The My K-Cup Universal is a four-piece assembly:

  • Filter basket
  • Filter holder, which the basket goes inside
  • Lid, which secures to the filter holder
  • Adapter, which snaps onto the bottom for Plus Series brewers

I can hear you asking the big question now:

"If Keurig makes their own reusable K-Cup and it's compatible with every Keurig coffee maker, why isn't it number 1?"

Primarily price.

The Keurig My K-Cup Universal (and their other Keurig 1.0 and Keurig 2.0-specific versions) all cost a lot more than the Delibru Reusable K-Cup.

Plus, Keurig doesn't sell compatible paper filters. You can buy them from other companies, but now you're using two different companies for one reusable K-Cup. It's almost always easier to go with the one company that does it all: Delibru.

Pros
  • Made by Keurig to fit their own brewers
  • My K-Cup Universal fits all Keurig brewers
Cons
  • Much more expensive than other reusable K-Cups
  • Keurig doesn't sell paper filters for use in their reusable K-Cup

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-Suite

Keurig K-Suite
Overall Rating: 84
A simple, compact, and sleek brewer designed for hotels and vacation rentals, the Keurig K-Suite Premium is a UL Commercial listed machine with 6-8 oz brew sizes to start your guests' days off on the right foot.

Keurig K450

Keurig K450
Overall Rating: 87
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.

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!
