What is the Keurig K-Supreme Plus Single Serve coffee maker?

The Keurig K-Supreme Plus Single Serve coffee maker is equipped with our new breakthrough MultiStream brewing technology to saturate the grounds more evenly throughout the pod. Technology and features allow for a fully customized cup.

Yes, the K-Supreme Plus coffee maker is compatible with the Keurig My K-Cup Universal Reusable Coffee Filter -be sure to purchase the most recent model with the grey top, compatible with MultiStream brewing technology.

What is the difference between descaling and cleaning?

Descaling is removing mineral buildup from inside your brewer while cleaning removes residue from the outside of your brewer such as coffee oils and residue from used K-Cups or K-Carafes. To clean your brewer simply fill the water reservoir with white vinegar and run it through a brew cycle once per month or as needed to remove any residue that may have accumulated on the outside of your brewer over time. For more information on cleaning your brewer and descaling, please visit www.keurig.com/clean .

The K-Cup is a single serving of coffee, tea, hot chocolate, or other beverages. The K-Carafe is a larger cup of coffee, tea, hot chocolate, or other beverages. Both are compatible with Keurig® brewing systems.

Can I use my own coffee in the K-Cup?

Yes! You can use your favorite coffee blend in the K-Cup.

Is there a warranty on my brewer?

How do I clean my brewer?

To clean your brewer, fill the water reservoir with white vinegar and run it through a brew cycle. This will help to remove any mineral build up that may have accumulated over time. If you have hard water where you live, you should do this monthly to keep your brewer in top shape. Also be sure to descale every 3-6 months depending on how frequently you use your brewer.

What are the brewing temperatures of the three settings?

Does the supreme plus smart make hotter coffe than the supreme plus?

The K-Supreme Plus coffee maker has three brew temperatures and will default to the lowest setting, which will dispense 170F (average) in cup. Use the TEMP button to toggle between temperature levels. The Over Ice feature will brew 6oz at a lower temperature optimized for iced beverages. With the K-Supreme Plus SMART, you can choose from 6 temperature settings: over ice, warm, warmer, hot, hotter, x-hot, and max hot.

How do you view two colors?

With two eyes, preferably.

Can a pod be used multiple times?

Technically yes, but the subsequent cups are very weak and kind of gross.

Can you program it to start in the morning?

No. There is no clock. However, it starts making your cup of coffee as soon as you turn it on. In two minutes your coffee cup is complete. The multistream more completely uses all the grounds in the pod. It’s a much better cup of coffee than the older machines. Great improvement. Worth waiting for, even if it is two minutes.
