We’ve posted tips before on how to clean your coffee machine, which you should do at least once a year, and your Keurig Brewer deserves the exact same treatment.
However, the Keurig is a slightly more complicated beast, and it’s not as simple to clean as is your regular, run-of-the-mill coffee machine. Keurig themselves posted a YouTube video on how to clean your K-cup machine, breaking down the process as simply as possible. All you need is a paperclip, a few minutes of your time, and a keen awareness so you don’t stab yourself with that puncture needle. Trust us, it hurts to scrape your finger on that thing.
If you have a Keurig 2.0 Brewer, then the video above unfortunately will not be of much assistance. You will have you use this following video, which explains how to use the orange Brewer Maintenance Accessory that came with your machine. If you did not get one or cannot find it, call Keurig at to receive a new one.
