Here we go again. So I got my Keurig 2.0 in February 2015. I told you guys all about it and what I thought of it compared to my Keurig B145. I have my Keurig 2.0 in my office, and this morning I rolled over for a fresh cup of coffee. I popped in the k-cup and it didn’t sound right. It started brewing really slow, then it actually made too much coffee and over flowed my cup. ~sigh~ I knew it must be time to learn how to clean my keurig 2.0.
Now I told you How to Clean Your Keurig Before when my old brewer wouldn’t make a full cup anymore. This process is similar, but there are some changes you need to know about.
When you open your Keurig 2.0 this piece where you put the k-cup pops out. Take it to the sink and wash it well with warm soapy water. Be super careful because there are sharp needles inside.
Once you remove that there is yet another tray inside that is removable. Go ahead and pull it out and wash it as well.
Then you can wipe out the inside with a clean cloth. Again be careful because there are sharp parts on this machine. While you have a wet cloth go ahead and wipe off the outside of the machine to make sure it is clean.
Reassemble your machine. Now you are going to put 1 cup of vinegar in your reservoir, and fill the rest with water. Run the hot water cycle as many times as you can with no k-cup in the machine until the reservoir is empty. Of course, it will not completely empty, so dump out the rest of the vinegar water. Fill with fresh water, and then run some more until you have run a complete reservoir of clean water through the machine. This is to make sure there is no vinegar left inside. Vinegar coffee does not taste so good.
Once complete your Keurig 2.0 is spic & span. I popped a k-cup in and it worked perfectly. No more slow big cups of coffee. Just a normal 10 oz cup of joy, also know as Folgers Vanilla Biscotti Coffee this morning. 😉
Hope this helps you keep your Keurig 2.0 running smoothly!
