Keurig 2.0 and Ekobrew Universal Cup Review

My friend’s girlfriend likes coffee and got a Keurig 2.0 a few months ago.

I’ve heard the technical side of the Keurig 2.0’s digital rights management (DRM) in their official “K-Cups” where the built in DRM in each K-Cup purchased at retail will only work with the Keurig.

Occasionally, I would get the dreaded “this setting is not compatible with the carafe” message while using Ekobrew’s reusable K-Cup which allows you to use your own blend of coffee, tea or whatever you would like in the Keurig 2.0 but to bypass this error message, I completed the following steps.

I brewed a carafe full of coffee by completing the following steps:

  • Unplugged the Keurig for 3 minutes or so
  • Pulled the Ekobrew cup out and wiped off the condensation from the previous cup being made
  • Wiped out the area where the K-Cup is inserted

The Keurig automatically recognized the Ekobrew K-Cup and started to brew the coffee.
