How to Set a Delay Brew on Keurig Duo
Do you want to wake up to a fresh cup of coffee without having to wake up early to make it? Here's how to do it:
Step 1: Plug in and Power On
First, plug your Keurig Duo into an outlet. Press the Power Button to turn it on. You'll notice the clock on the display begins to flash.
Step 2: Set the Current Time
With the clock flashing, use the H (Hour) and M (Minute) Buttons to set the current time. There should be an indication on the display to help you set the correct AM or PM time.

Press the "Auto" (Auto Brew) Button. Then, use the "H" and "M" Buttons to set the time you want your coffee to brew.
Step 6: Select Brew Size
Decide how much coffee you want to brew by pressing the Brew Size Button. You can choose between 6 to 12 ounces.
Step 7: Confirm Brew Settings
Press the "K" or "Brew" Button again to save your settings.
The coffee maker light will light up, and a clock symbol will show on the display, indicating that the delay brew is set.
Step 8: Adjustments and Cancellation
If you need to change the brew time, press the "Auto" Button again to adjust or cancel the settings.
