Why is water important?

Coffee and tea are over 98% water so quality drinking water is necessary to produce a quality beverage. We don’t recommend the use of softened water or distilled water. Bottled or spring water works best when brewing with your Keurig.

The most common concern with water for brewing is the "hardness" of the water. This refers to various natural minerals found in water such as magnesium, calcium, sodium, potassium, bicarbonate, sulfate and chloride. The number of grains of dissolved minerals changes the level of soluble solids extracted from the coffee and tea. As hard water passes through the brewer, it produces deposits of scale or lime. This reduces the life and efficiency of the equipment, and affects the brew flavor; bottled or filtered water should be used to solve this problem. Keurig also recommends descaling your brewer at least every 3-6 months depending on your water source.

Differences between Keurig® home brewers and work brewers

All Keurig® brewers and Keurig licensed brewers share the same innovative single-cup technology that ensures a fresh-brewed, perfect cup of coffee, tea, hot cocoa, or iced beverage every time. However, Keurig does market separate home and work brewers with features and UL certification appropriate for their intended use.

Keurig® home brewers include the MINI Plus, Elite, Classic, Ultra, Special Edition, Ultimate, Platinum, Select,  B155, K300, K400, K500 and RIVO. Keurig licensed home brewers include the Mr. Coffee brewer with Keurig Brewed® Technology, Cuisinart brewer with Keurig Brewed® Technology, and Breville brewer with Keurig Brewed® Technology. These brewers are engineered for home use and UL/ULC Listed for Household use only; thus, they should not be used in a commercial/office setting. In general, these brewers are designed for typical home use – including features and aesthetics most appropriate for a kitchen environment. All home brewers can be purchased through and specific models can be purchased through our retail partners. To find out which home brewer is right for you, view all brewers below.

Keurig® work brewers include the DeskPRO, B140, OfficePRO® , B150, B155, B200, and B3000SE.

These brewers are designed for robust use in commercial establishments and brewing up to ten times the daily volume of our home brewers.

Using a Keurig brewer at high altitudes

While Keurig Keurig® brewers are made to be used at elevations up to 1800 m (6,000 ft.), the K-Cup Keurig® pack may need to be pre-punctured prior to brewing to release the pressure inside. To do this, simply drop the portion pack into the K-Cup® portion pack chamber and push down slowly so that the bottom of the portion pack is punctured by the exit needle in the bottom of the chamber. Also, the Keurig Keurig® Special Edition, Ultimate, Platinum, Select, and B155 brewers are equipped with a temperature control so you may want to experiment lowering the brew temperature in elevated areas.

What is the price of the Keurig® system?

For offices that require full service or a direct-water-line plumbed brewer, we recommend you work with our network of Keurig Authorized Distributors (KADs). Typically, distributor pricing is based on several factors including the number of employees, cups of coffee/tea consumed per day, and other products ordered. Depending on your workplace’s specific situation, brewers are often loaned or leased for a reasonable monthly fee, by one of our distributors. For pricing information from a local distributor, please fill out the Pricing Information Form.
