Personalized Coffee Settings

Using these memory buttons, you can personalize your coffee in Keurig K-Supreme Plus. This model contains three memory buttons right below the display screen. So you can have three personalized coffee settings. Now to set these buttons, you need to follow the following instructions:

How To Maintain Your Brewer

Who among us doesn’t want a long life span for their appliances? Given that fact, the appliances cost a hefty investment, and all of us want to ensure that we can enjoy their services as long as we can. This applies to the appliances as well because our appliances also demand care and maintenance from us users in order to extend their lifetime. Therefore, it is imperative to take meticulous care of your Brewer. If you are worried about the process, do not! I will share all the necessary steps, and you will become a Pro soon.

 Brewer Exterior

For cleaning the residue on the exterior of your Brwer, you may use a moist, soapy, lint-free cloth or sponge to wipe down the inner lid, outer lid, and brewing area of your Keurig K-Supreme Plus. Now, Leave the lid open so the machine can completely air dry, then dampen a towel with fresh water to remove any soap residue.

Drip Tray

I recommend you clean the drip tray after every use, making sure to remove any leftover coffee, extra water, milk, and loose grounds from your machine. You can clean it with hot, soapy water and a soft scrub brush by thoroughly washing the tray and the grid. In the end, completely rinse it, then dry the parts.

The drip tray may store up to 8 ounces of overflow and should be emptied and cleaned on a regular basis. To remove it, slide it towards you, keeping it level to minimize leaking. Rinse and clean using a moist, soapy, lint-free, non-abrasive cloth.

Water Reservoir

To maintain the cleanliness of your water reservoir, it’s important to periodically wipe the inside of the water reservoir and the underside of the lid with a damp, non-abrasive, and lint-free cloth. It’s important not to dry the inside with a cloth as lint may remain. To ensure complete drying, let the reservoir air dry completely.

K-Cup Pod Holder

To remove the K-Cup pod holder from the Brewer, lift the handle and grip the top of the K-Cup® pod holder with one hand while pulling up from below with the other hand until it releases. After cleaning, use the two front ribs as a guide to line the K-Cup pod holder with the opening and snap it into place from the top.

Note: Both the top of the K-Cup® pod holder and the bottom of the K-Cup® pod holder include sharp needles that puncture the K-Cup® pod. Do not stick your fingers into the K-Cup® pod holder to prevent damage.

 NOTE: After brewing, always discard the used K-Cup® pod.


Cleaning the funnel guarantees that you get a fresh beverage experience. The funnel should be cleansed on a regular basis and may be removed from the K-Cup® pod holder by tugging until it pops out.

Replace it by orienting the snaps to the indent and simply snapping it back onto the K-Cup® pod holder.

Exit Needle

To clean the exit needle on the bottom of the K-Cup® pod holder, first, remove the pod holder assembly and detach the funnel. Then, locate the exit needle inside the bottom of the pod holder and Insert a straightened paper clip into the exit needle to loosen any coffee grounds that may be clogging it.

Entrance Needle

To clean the entrance needles, locate them on the underside of your Keurig Brewer lid, lift the Brewer handle and identify the holes in the needles. Using a straightened paper clip, gently insert it into each hole while holding the handle upward. Move the paper clip around to remove any coffee grounds. After cleaning, lower the handle and run a cleansing brew twice without a K-Cup pod.

Regular Maintenance

Now that you have grasped all steps of cleaning your Brewer, It is also important to follow a regular maintenance schedule. This will ensure optimal performance and continued enjoyment of your coffee.

De-Scale Your Brewer

Do you know that the Keurig K-Supreme Plus can accumulate a mineral build up if it is not de-scale regularly? This buildup can also lead to clogs and malfunctions, resulting in costly repairs or replacements. You can only displace these mineral remnants by properly de-scaling them every three months or whenever the de-scale signal alerts. If you want a guideline for the de-scaling process, I am here to help you.

Note: Complete the de-scaling process correctly if you wish to disable the notification.

Here is the list of the things you must have during the de-scaling process.

  1. A large ceramic mug

Note:  Do not use a paper cup

  1.  Freshwater
  2.  Keurig® de-scaling Solution
  3. Access to a sink.


  • Make sure the K-Cup® pod holder is empty of beverage pods. 
  • It takes approximately 20 minutes to de-scale your Keurig K-Supreme Plus.

Step 1: Prepare The Brewer

Fill the water reservoir with the entire bottle of Keurig® de-scale Solution. Then, fill this bottle with water. Please do not insert a K-Cup® pod. Set the mug on top of the drip tray.

Step 2: De-Scale The Brewer

Start by plugging in and turning off the Brewer. Then, press and hold the 8oz and 12oz buttons together for 3 seconds. Press the brew button when it begins to flash to start the de-scaling procedure. Pour the hot mixture from the mug into the sink as soon as the brew is finished. Until the ADD WATER light turns on, repeat this process.

Step 3: Fresh Water Rinse

Now, empty the water reservoir and fill it again with fresh water, but do not overfill it above the MAX LINE. Press the brew button when the flashing starts. Once the brew cycle is finished, pour the hot liquid into the sink to complete the de-scaling process. Repeat this process until the de-scale notification turns off. This will help ensure all mineral buildup has been removed and your Brewer is operating at its best. Congratulations, you have made this; your Keurig K-Supreme is in ready-to-use mode after the completion of the De-scaling process

Note: The Keurig® de-scaling Solution may cause foam during the cleaning process, which is normal as the solution reacts with scale buildup. If the Brewer is heavily scaled, it may not fill properly, resulting in a small or no output, followed by air blowing sound. If this happens, then follow these steps.

  1. Shut it off and unplug the Brewer
  2. If there is Keurig® de-scaling Solution is in the water reservoir, remove it, thoroughly clean it, and replace it with water.
  3. Plug the Brewer and repeat step no 3, “Fresh Water Rinse.” Brewer will function as the solution is rinsed and the scale is removed. If the issue persists, wait at least 30 minutes unplugged before continuing to rinse.
