There are two ingredients in a great cup of coffee- water and coffee. We take all of this time to discuss where the coffee beans come from, what is the best roast, and the flavor. But, no time thinking about the water we use to prepare our precious cup of joe. What is the best water to use in a Keurig coffee maker? Water makes up 98% of every wonderful brew. So we thought we would take a little time to discuss what is the best type of water to use for taste and longevity of your Keurig brewer.

Many refrigerators now come with a filter built in. You can easily add one to your sink faucet or some go as far as a whole house filter. We recommend speaking to a water professional to be sure that you are purchasing a reputable filter. Filters will eliminate the smell and taste of chlorine, sulfur and iron as well as some minerals. Your Keurig will thank you by lasting longer and producing better tasting coffee. The filter can be on your fridge, your sink, free standing or these filters specifically designed for classic Keurig models or these for Keurig 2.0.

However, please note, distilled water should not be used in Keurig models 2.0 and newer. This water is too pure for the sensors to operate properly. If you are using a Keurig 2.0 or newer model which you likely are, stick with filtered water or use a Keurig filter.

Keurig has made it quite a bit easier for us by designing these filter cartridges to be used with tap water. They are designed to fit right in the water reservoir of your unit. It is optional however, to choose best water to use in a Keurig coffee maker first.

Empty the entire descaling solution into the water reservoir, and then add filtered water until it reaches the brim (you can also buy distilled water, but plain water from the tap is acceptable in a pinch too). Plug the machine back in, turn it on, and place the largest mug you own under the sprout. Program the machine to brew to the highest cup setting (8 or 10 ounces). Start the brew cycle.

Hey Carol, you might want to read my K-Supreme water filter installation article on how to install or replace the water filter on your K-Supreme, K-Supreme Plus, or K-Supreme Plus SMART brewer models.

With the K550, you'll receive the Keurig brewer, a water filter kit (already installed in the water reservoir in this photo above), a carafe, and a sampling of K-Cups and K-Carafe packs. The Keurig 2.0 was designed to be simple and smart. It employs revolutionary technology that allows it to read the lid of each K-Cup or K-Carafe to brew the perfect beverage every time.

The K550 has an impressive 80 ounce water reservoir. This is perfect for brewing multiple single serving cups of coffee or for brewing a full carafe or two. The K550's water reservoir can be filled by removing it from the side of the machine and filling it directly from your sink, or you can use the flip-top reservoir lid (LOVE this feature). As I mentioned before, the brewer also comes with a water filter that you should replace every two months for the best tasting coffee possible. New to this brewer is a customizable night light in the water reservoir. You can choose the color you prefer (blue is featured in the above photo, but you can pick blue, red, green, or white) and you can even set the time you want the light to turn on and off! Another fabulous feature of this brewer is that you can simply hold the Keurig 2.0 button down to get hot water on demand. 041b061a72
