K Cup Coffeemaker Review

By Donna Anderson

For those of you that have been contemplating the purchase of a K Cup Coffeemaker, read on to find out the low down. You will learn more about them, and the way they work, and why I chose Keurig B60 Special Edition Gourmet Single-Cup Home Brewing System.

What is so special about a K Cup Coffeemaker you ask? Keurig, the company behind the K Cup Coffeemaker, has created a special brewing system that is taking the coffee industry by storm. The B60 is my favorite for its ease of use; you merely place a coffee pod into your machine, press a button, and prepare for a delicious piping hot cup of coffee. When you are finished, the mess free pod is simply thrown away.

Some People May be Thinking- Why Would People Want a Coffeemaker That Only Brews One Cup of Coffee at a Time?

1. To begin with, it's economical. You will no longer worry about pouring half full pots of coffee down the drain on the way to work each morning.

2. The Taste is Amazing! Each cup will be fresh and hot. Gone is that bitter last cup at the bottom of the pot.

3. Variety! You and your guests can each enjoy the coffee of your choice.

4. No Mess! Each pod is sealed and created for individual use making the clean up simple and quick. There are no coffee grounds to fuss with.

A K Cup Coffeemaker Works How?

The water for brewing is held in a reservoir, and depending on the model, this can be anywhere from 8-ounces to 60-ounces. Some models can be left on continuously, and others turn off automatically, with heating times ranging from 1 to 3 minutes. After placing a coffee pod in the maker, the pod is pierced and hot water is forced through the pod for maximum brewing efficiency. And Voila! One perfect cup of coffee - everytime!

Which is the greatest K Cup Coffeemaker?

I tried many K Cup Coffeemakers and found my personal favorite was the budget friendly and versatile Keurig B60 Special Edition Gourmet Single-Cup Home-Brewing System. With three cup sizes and two temperature settings, I can make a perfect cup for any situation or time of day. The forty-eight ounce reservoir is removable and can hold enough water for nine cups of coffee. The B60 also compliments my modern kitchen decor with a sturdy structure and attractive LED backlighting on the control panel and reservoir. The Keurig B60 is a step above other brands of coffeemaker with a large variety of coffee to choose from and a specially designed Keurig My K Cup Reusable Coffee Filter.

Will a Single-Cup Brewing System work for entertaining?

The Keurig B60 Special Edition Gourmet Single-Cup Home-Brewing System is perfect for parties and get-togethers. The 48-ounce water reservoir allows you to brew at least 9 cups of coffee, at one minute intervals, before you have to refill again. Offer your guests a selection of coffees and let them chose their favorites. Not only will they rave about the flavor, they'll be amazed that you were able to accommodate their individual tastes so quickly and effortlessly. Your party will be the talk of the town!

Is The Keurig B60 Difficult To Use?

Not at all! The removable water reservoir enables you to carry it to the sink for filling, instead of spilling pitchers of water all over your kitchen counter. And since it holds 48-ounces of water, you'll get at least 9 cups of coffee before you have to refill. Just lift the handle on the machine and drop in a premeasured K Cup Coffee Pod and the machine does the rest.

What if I want a stronger cup of coffee?

Of Course! You can get many different coffees in versions with more strength by Keurig, when you find yourself in need of an extra wake up in the morning. You can just change the brewing size also. When you make a smaller cup, you won't use as much water. Less water means that the coffee will be stronger. You can also blend flavors to make your own perfect recipe. Teas and hot chocolates are also available with the Keurig B60, in addition to the huge coffee selections.

How many blends can you choose from?

Too many to count!

Not only are there coffees that are specially made for the Keurig systems, but Keurig also offers an adapter, called the Perfect Pod Holster, that will allow you to use almost any other manufacturers' coffee pods, too. And if you can't find what you like there, try the Keurig My K Cup Reusable Coffee filter. Fill this filter with any coffee you chose - Gourmet Brands, Store brands, or your own special blends - and drop it into the coffeemaker just like any other coffee pod.
