iCoffee Davinci Single Serve Coffee Brewer with Spin Brew Technology
But! Getting back to the Keurig - because a couple years ago I expressed an interest in hooking up a direct water line to ours since my husband would complain about always having to refill it. At the time, people were just starting to think about direct water line hook ups and there wasn't a market for it and no one made it easy. It was in bits and pieces.
Now however, there are a couple companies that will sell you the kits (which I've posted about in the past) and they've added a filter for better taste/flavor.
Here is the piece that I saw on Amazon this morning that got my brain thinking I should re-visit this topic and blog about it.....
Fitting for direct water line hook up
- B150 Keurig Water Connector
- Hooks your B150 Plumb Kit to a 1/4" water line
- 1/4 " tube x 3/4" Female Garden Hose Thread
- Includes washer, Lifetime Warranty and free telephone support
- Manufactured Exclusively by PureWater Filters
This connector allows you to hook your Keurig B150 to a water source. You must have the B150 plumb kit. This connector attaches to the plumb kit and the other end has a quick connect fitting to connect to a 1/4" water line. Helps direct the water line directly to an attachable filter (sold separately).
(If you need this part with the elbow see this link; Elbow version)
And here is the one of the kits I mentioned above that incorporates a filter to the direct water line kit.
Since I'm not currently using a Keurig since our iCoffee is working out well for us right now, I do not have this filter kit and have not used it myself.

If I order this filtration kit, do I still need the to order the separate tubing to hook it up to a hard water line?
It comes with a small piece of water line but you will need more and a way to connect it to your water source.

Yes...the hard plumb kit comes with a different kind of reservoir and you need that piece. The reservoir that comes with the keurig is replaced so you will end up with an extra reservoir....

Yes you do, just get a ice maker water hookup kit from Home Depot for $15, it comes with pipe tap and 20ft of 1/4 tubing. I recomend a shutoff valve be install inline too.
