As of right now, you can’t choose the brew temperature on the newer Keurig coffee makers anymore. The brewer defaults to an average brew temperature of about 175 degrees for K-Cups and 180 degrees for Vue Packs & K-Carafe Packs. You can try to run a cycle of water through the brewer before brewing a cup if you haven’t used the coffee maker for a few hours. This heats up the machine and can make the water a few degrees warmer, giving you a slightly hotter cup.
There may be a hack on YouTube you can try but it may void the warranty.
