In this list, we’ll explain the differences between the six different settings on the Keurig 2.0.
While we’re pretty confident about the function of settings #1, 4, and 5, we’re making educated guesses on #s 2, 3, and 6 due to the lack of specific information on the Keurig website and user manuals. Keurig often does this to allow room for later feature updates.
Keurig 2.0 Brew Setting #1 – Purple
Brews up to 30oz of coffee with K-Carafe pods.
Keurig 2.0 Brew Setting #2 – Yellow
Brews travel mug-sized coffees from 12oz to 16oz.
Keurig 2.0 Brew Setting #3 – Green
Brews travel mug-sized Vue packs. The function isn’t specifically defined and leaves room for future Keurig innovations.
Keurig 2.0 Brew Setting #4 – Brown
Brews Vue pods for up to 10oz of coffee.
Keurig 2.0 Brew Setting #5 – Cyan
Brew two-stage cafe beverages that require milk frothing, such as lattes and cappuccinos.
Keurig 2.0 Brew Setting #6 – Orange
Brews cups of all sizes. There’s not much information on the sixth setting, but according to the Keurig website, it is used for additional beverage types like hot cocoas or pour-overs.
