Keurig K-Classic K55 vs. K-Select K80 Brewer Differences

The difference between the K-Classic (K55) and the K-Select (K80) brewers is that the K-Classic coffee maker has slightly smaller water reservoir tank (48 ounces instead of 52 ounces). The K-Select allows for brewing 4 cup sizes (6, 8, 10, and 12 ounces) while the K-Classic K55 brewer allows for just 6, 8, and 10 ounce brew cup sizes. The K-Select (K80) coffee machine also allows for Strength Control, whereas the K-Classic K55 version does not.

Is the Keurig K55 K-Classic Coffee Brewer a 2.0 Brewer?

The KClassic brewer model lets you brew any type of single-serve beverage pod you want. You are not limited to using only particular types of “licensed” K-cups. The Keurig Classic is a newer model without this DRM feature, and so you are free to use any standard sized K-cup or third-party single-serve pod.
