Using a Keurig® Brewer at High Altitude
Published  6/28/17
While Keurig® brewers are made to be used at elevations up to 6,000 ft., pods may need to be pre-punctured prior to brewing to release the pressure inside. To do this simply drop the pod into the pod chamber and push down slowly so that the bottom of the pod is punctured by the exit needle in the bottom of the chamber. Also, the Keurig® Special Edition, Ultimate, Platinum, Select, and OfficePRO® Premier brewers are equipped with a temperature control so you may want to experiment lowering the brew temperature in elevated areas. Additionally, the Keurig® 2.0 / Plus Series has a specific ‘High Altitude’ setting to enable for use in high altitudes.
