Keurig With Timer [3rd One is Best Programmable Coffee Maker]

    Are you looking for a Keurig with timer? Perhaps you want the coffee maker to power on automatically the next morning with the water all heated up for your brewing? Or you simply want the coffee to be brewed automatically when you wake up? So which Keurig models have this feature?

    Does all Keurig have timer?

    Not every Keurig models come with a programmable timer. But for those that come with a timer, there are different ways the timer are used.

    3 Types of Keurig with Timer

    There are 3 ways a coffee brewer can benefit from  a programmable timer:

    1. the ability to power off automatically at a preset time (Auto-off)
    2. the ability to power on automatically at a preset time (Auto-On)
    3. the ability to automatically brew the coffee at a preset time (Auto-Brew)
    Programmable Auto-Off

    The Auto-off feature is found in a number of Keurig models. However, only the Keurig K-elite and K575 allows you to have more flexibility in setting the time for the machine to power down automatically.

     The other models with Auto-Off only have a fixed timing, typically 2 hours after the last brew, to power down automatically. For these models, the only flexibility left would be the option to disable this auto-off feature but this option is also limited to certain models.

    Programmable  Auto-On

    The Auto-on feature allows you to set the brewer to power on automatically at your preset time. However, this doesn’t mean that you can get your coffee brewed automatically. All it is does is getting the brewer ready so that you can pop in your K-cup when you wake up.  The models with this feature include Keurig K-Elite, K575 and K150.

    Programmable Auto-Brew

    As for the Auto-brew feature, it is only found in the certain models that can make carafe. However, the auto-brew doesn’t apply to the K-cup. These models include K575 and the newer K Duo Plus.
