Frequently Asked Questions

Question  Back to top
What is a K-Carafe™ pack?
Answer

K-Carafe™ packs are new packs developed specifically for use in the Keurig® 2.0 system. These packs contain up to 26 grams of fresh coffee and brew approximately four cups of coffee into a specially designed Keurig® carafe that holds up to 30 ounces of coffee.

Like our K-Cup® and Vue® packs, the number of ounces (or grams) in each carafe pack varies depending on the beverage. Even among single cup coffee packs, volumes vary depending on the coffee’s roast level, grind, and formulation for optimal brewing.

Question  Back to top

Question  Back to top
Will there be organic or fair trade K-Carafe™ varieties available?
Answer

Yes, Newman’s Own Organics® Special Blend, which is organic and fair trade, will be available in K-Carafe™ packs.

Question  Back to top
Why doesn’t the carafe look more premium? Why isn’t the carafe insulated? Will there be alternative carafe options available?
Answer

The carafe included with our Keurig® 2.0 brewers is a great solution for consumers looking to brew a four-cup carafe to share with friends and family or take on the road in a large travel mug. While the included carafe is not insulated, consumers can purchase an insulated Stainless Steel Carafe for $29.99.

Question  Back to top
Why can’t I use any carafe I want?
Answer

For safety reasons, we designed Keurig carafes to sync with the Keurig® 2.0 brewer to ensure as best we could that when consumers put in a carafe pack they can safely brew the volume of coffee that will be delivered when they push the button for a carafe brew.

Therefore, consumers will not be able to brew a carafe without the included carafe or Stainless Steel Carafe.

Question  Back to top
What are the advantages to using this new carafe option versus using my batch brewer?
Answer

The Keurig® 2.0 system offers consumers the ability to use one Keurig® system to both brew a single cup and a four-cup carafe simply and conveniently using Keurig® brand packs.
