The Keurig K-Cup brewing system is a wildly popular way to quickly brew single cups of hot beverages at home, and part of its appeal is the wide variety of drink capsules available, including hundreds of types of flavored coffees and teas, hot chocolate, and more. But the downside to having so many options is finding enough space in your kitchen for storing bulky boxes or rolling piles of K-Cup pods. Since the capsules are something you’ll use daily (or multiple times a day), it’s also best to keep them close at hand, as near your machine as possible, to minimize time spent searching for the one you want. Fortunately, many storage solutions exist, for any kitchen configuration.

Here are our picks for the best K-Cup pod organizers and dispensers.

Best Overall: Solofill My SoloPad Automatic Coffee Pod Dispenser

What We Like
  • Space-saving

  • Easy to load and dispense pods

  • Large capacity

  • Versatile

What We Don't Like
  • Only available in black

This slim, space-saving K-Cup organizer is spring-loaded to automatically dispense a new pod each time one is removed. It can hold seven capsules of six different flavors, for a total of up to 42 pods. It’s extremely versatile and can be used in many different ways: laid flat underneath a coffee machine, vertically on a countertop, or mounted on a wall or cabinet door. Its tempered glass face is easy to clean, translucent (so you can see how many pods are remaining), and sturdy enough to support a coffee maker without bending or breaking.

The one slight drawback to this dispenser is that it’s only available in a black-and-silver color scheme, but the same manufacturer also makes a smaller version that's also available in red and white and that can accommodate 24 K-Cups or 16 K-Carafe pods.

Best Budget: RONMUI Coffee Pod Holder and Organizer

What We Like
  • Versatile in use

  • Small countertop footprint

What We Don't Like
  • Doesn’t keep different flavors separate

  • Limited capacity

This lightweight storage basket is made of steel wire with a matte black finish, formed in the shape of an oversize coffee mug. It’s a discreet and attractive way to keep your coffee pods together on a countertop next to your brewer. While it doesn’t hold a large number of capsules and can’t keep different flavors or types of capsules organized and separate, it’s a budget-friendly option that can be used with any brand of coffee pod and that can also hold packets of creamer or sweetener at the same time.

Best Design: Keurig Collage Storage Unit

keurig-collage-storage-unit
What We Like
  • Stylish and contemporary

  • Holds K-Cup, K-Mug, and K-Carafe pods

  • Multiple color options

What We Don't Like
  • Pricier than other options

  • Limited capacity

This official Keurig-brand storage unit is a sleek rack with a modern look designed to stand on a countertop and display your K-Cup pods while keeping them close to your coffee machine. Available in black, white, or grey metal with a striking geometric cutout design, it holds up to 16 K-Cup pods and 4 of the larger K-Mug or K-Carafe pods.

Best Rotating Stand: Nifty 35-Pod Coffee Carousel

nifty-coffee-pod-carousel
What We Like
  • Large capacity

  • Quick and easy to find flavors

  • Sturdy

  • Small footprint

What We Don't Like
  • Less discreet than some other options

  • Takes up counter space

For those who prefer to have all of their flavor options immediately visible and right next to the brewer, a countertop carousel might be the best option. This spinning rack is available in six different sizes—to hold anywhere from 24 to 40 K-Cup pods—and in two colors: black or chrome. Turning the knob on top of the carousel spins it 360 degrees so you can quickly find the flavor you want. The bottom is weighted for stability and easy turning.

Best Drawer: Nifty Rolling Glass-Top Coffee Pod Drawer

What We Like
  • Sleek and stylish

  • Large capacity

  • Slim and space-saving

  • Easy to move

What We Don't Like
  • Pods may get stuck when drawer is opening or closing

  • Doesn't hold all sizes of Keurig machines

Some under-machine coffee pod drawers are notorious for having weak tops that bend under the weight of a coffee machine, making it difficult to open or close. This model features a sturdy tempered glass top that can easily support a Keurig brewer while allowing you to see how many pods are left in each row. The sliding metal rack holds up to 36 pods and features a clever locking roller system on the bottom, so you can easily glide the machine and drawer out from under a low cabinet for use and then back under again for storage.

Best Drawer Insert: Polar Whale K-Cup Storage Organizer

What We Like
  • Versatile

  • Discreet

  • Customizable

What We Don't Like
  • Takes up a lot of drawer space

For those who prefer to store their K-Cup capsules out of sight, these waterproof and washable organizer trays are designed to slip into a kitchen drawer. Made of lightweight, high-density foam, they feature hollowed-out holes that securely hold K-Cup pods in place so they won’t roll around in the drawer and stay neatly organized and easy to find. The trays are available in many different sizes and are easy to cut to size to custom-fit them to any size of drawer.

Best Wall-Mounted: Storage Theory Peel and Stick Cafe Wall Caddy

What We Like
  • Works on any vertical surface

  • Easy to install

  • Won't damage walls or surfaces

What We Don't Like
  • Not very discreet

  • Can't expand capacity without using more wall space

For kitchens that are short on counter and drawer space, mounting a pod organizer on a vertical surface is another space-saving possibility. This modern-looking white plastic rack in a honeycomb pattern is a snap to mount (and remove) with the included no-residue adhesive strips, without requiring any drilling or nails. It can be installed on a wall, backsplash, fridge, cabinet, or on the inside of a cabinet or pantry door, putting your K-Cup pods within easy reach while freeing up space. Each caddy can hold up to 28 coffee capsules.

Best Under-Cabinet: Coffee Keepers Under-Cabinet K-Cup Holder

What We Like
  • Saves valuable counter, drawer, and cabinet space

  • Easy to install

  • Discreet

What We Don't Like
  • Requires installation

  • Might not work with all cabinets or spaces

This cleverly designed and patented storage system mounts on the underside of a kitchen cabinet, utilizing otherwise-unused space without taking any storage space away from your other kitchen equipment. It’s easy to mount without having to use a drill, and it swings down at an angle so you can easily view and select your preferred K-Cup pod, then back up and out of sight. The fold-out organizer is available in either black or white metal and can hold up to 24 K-Cup pods.

Best Custom-Made: Rural Creation by Jason Handmade Wood Keurig K-Cup Holder

rural-creation-by-jason-keurig-k-cup-holder
What We Like
  • Elegant and discreet

  • Can be customized

  • Makes a great gift

What We Don't Like
  • Limited capacity

  • Takes some time to make

  • Pricier than other options

A great gift idea for any Keurig fan, this wooden K-cup organizer drawer is handmade to order in Ohio in your choice of six types of solid wood: walnut, hickory, poplar, pine, ash, or cedar. It can even be personalized with an engraved message. Each drawer holds 18 K-Cups and stands about 3 inches tall and 9 inches wide.

Best On-Machine: Storagenie K-Cup Coffee Pod Holder

What We Like
  • Space-saving

  • Easy to install

  • Budget-friendly

  • Stylish color options

What We Don't Like
  • Limited capacity

These small plastic racks are designed to quickly and easily attach directly to the side of any Keurig brewer. Each set includes three racks, which each hold up to five K-Cup pods, for a total of 15 pods. They’re available in an array of fashionable colors like teal, turquoise, grey, and pastel pink to match your Keurig machine or kitchen decor, and while they’re designed to be used on the side of a coffee maker, they also can be mounted easily on a wall, fridge, or cabinet door. No drilling or nailing is required to mount them since they use a simple and removable adhesive system.

Final Verdict

The options for K-Cup pod storage are almost as endless as the flavor choices, but our pick for the best organizing system overall is the Solofill Automatic K-Cup Dispenser (view at Amazon), which can be used under a Keurig machine, upright on a counter, or mounted on a wall. If you’re not looking to spend a lot, the Ronmui K-Cup Storage Basket (view at Amazon) is a budget-friendly option, while the Coffee Keepers Under-Cabinet K-Cup Holder (view at Amazon) is perfect for small spaces with limited storage.
