The Best Keurig Iced Coffee Makers in 2022
Technically, any Keurig single serve machine can be used to make both iced and hot coffee. The issue is that unless you use brew over ice K-cup pods or follow my Keurig iced coffee tips, you’ll likely end up with a watery coffee from melted ice. If you really like iced drinks and are trying to decide which Keurig machine to buy, I suggest you consider three specific models: the K-Supreme, the K-Elite and the K-Slim+ICED. These models have iced beverage making built in, so they will more easily make a better tasting cup vs other ones. In my opinion, they are the best picks for a Keurig iced coffee maker.
Note that my picks below are for making a regular coffee. If you are hoping to also make iced lattes, you may be better off with a Nespresso Vertuo machine. No Keurig model can prepare a true espresso. A Nespresso Vertuo will be able to make both regular coffee and espresso for a latte (but you will also need a milk frother).
Best Overall Pick: The Keurig K-Supreme
The newest Keurig brewers that can make iced coffee are from the K-Supreme range. There are three models that have some different specs and features: the K-Supreme, the K-Supreme Plus, and the K-Supreme Plus Smart.
All three models have a “Brew Over Ice” button that makes it super easy to make a good iced coffee that won’t taste watered down. This feature auto adjusts the brewing temperature for cold drinks. It starts hotter to extract the full flavor of the coffee, then cools down as the brewing finishes. The result is less ice melt for an iced drink with a vibrant, balanced flavor. Using the “Brew Over Ice” feature is easy. Just fill your tumbler with ice, add your K-cup, and hit the button.
See the specs and features table below to see how the three K-Supreme models differ.

|Coffee Sizes||4, 6, 8, 10 and 12 oz||4, 6, 8, 10 and 12 oz||6, 8, 10 and 12 oz|
|Temperature Control||Yes (Warm to Max Hot)||Yes (Warm to Max Hot)||No|

|Display Screen||Yes||Button Controls||Button Controls|
|Dimensions||12.4” H x 8.3” W x 13.4” D||12.2” H x 8.3” W x 13.3” D||12.2” H x 7.9” W x 12” D (water tank on side) 12.2” H x 6.4” W x 15.1” D (water tank on back)|
Second Choice: The Keurig K-Elite
An older but highly-rated model, the K-Elite was the first machine to have an iced coffee setting. Just press the “Iced” button and the K-Elite will choose the optimal settings for your cold drink. It is likely works through a combo of reduced water temperature while brewing and brewing a smaller, more concentrated coffee to allow for some dilution from the ice. Just fill a plastic tumbler (not glass!) with ice and hit the button!
|Specs & Features||K-Elite|
|Coffee Sizes||4, 6, 8, 10 and 12 oz|
|Water Reservoir Capacity||75 oz removable|
|Dimensions||13.1” H x 9.9” W x 12.7” D|
Best Budget Pick: The Keurig K-Slim+ICED Coffee Maker
Like the more advanced K-Supreme range, the K-Slim+Iced machine also has a “Brew Over Ice” button to easily make an iced coffee that won’t taste watered down. This feature adjusts the brewing temperature for cold drinks. It starts hotter to extract the full flavor of the coffee, then cools down as the brewing finishes. The result is less ice melt for an iced drink with a vibrant, balanced flavor. Just fill your tumbler with ice, add your K-cup, and hit the button.
|Specs & Features||K-Slim+ICED|
|Coffee Sizes||8, 10 and 12 oz|
|Water Reservoir Capacity||46 oz|
|Energy Saver Auto Off||Yes|
|Dimensions||12.1” H x 4.8” W x 15.2” D|
