If you have a new Keurig® 2.0 brewer, then you may be one of the many consumers who have become frustrated because you can only brew coffees marked with the Keurig® logo. At MixCups, we think you should be able to brew whatever brand of coffee you like so here are some solutions to help you conquer the Keurig® 2.0 compatibility issue.
The makers of San Francisco Bay Coffee have a solution they call the Freedom Clip. It’s a small plastic clip that inserts into the underside of the brewer’s lid and tricks the brewer into thinking any cup is an “Authorized K-Cup®.” At the time of this post, they are offering the Freedom Clip free of charge so get one while you can!
There’s a video tutorial over at KeurigHack.com that walks you through hacking the 2.0 brewer using only a small piece of tape and a used K-Cup® lid. It’s super easy and if you’re a Star Wars fan, you’ll love the theme music!
The whole Keurig® 2.0 compatibility issue will soon be a moot point. Currently, most of the major competing coffee brands have already figured out the technology and are manufacturing their own 2.0 compatible cups. These are beginning to arrive now and should be available in most selections by Fall 2015.
Whichever solution you choose, we hope you enjoy your coffee freedom!
