You’ve probably asked yourself, “Do all Keurigs have a water filter?” It’s a common question, especially for those new to the Keurig world.

Fortunately:

If you’re looking for a straightforward answer, I have you covered. Leveraging my years of experience using Keurig coffee makers, I have compiled a comprehensive list with all the necessary information.

Let’s get started.

Do All Keurigs Have a Water Filter

Do All Keurigs Have a Water Filter?

Not all Keurig models come with a water filter. Only select models have an inbuilt water filtration system. However, Keurig recommends using filtered or bottled water to improve beverage taste. The first step is to know your Keurig model and whether or not it carries a water filter.

Properly Aligned the Filter Holder

Owners can also buy Keurig water filter cartridges separately. These handy attachments make filtering tap water convenient, ultimately achieving the recommended use of the Keurig coffee maker.

Now: 

Taking the time to filter your water before brewing could mean the difference between a good and a great cup of coffee. But, it could also help your brewer last much longer.

Remember:

Regular descaling is necessary to maintain your Keurig machine, regardless of its water filtration capabilities. This process removes mineral build-ups that affect the taste and functionality of the Keurig.

That being said:

Here is a quick breakdown of popular Keurig brewers, detailing which of them come with water filters.
