Keurig Special Edition Gourmet Single-Cup Home-Brewing System
Keurig B60 Special Edition is a step up from Keurig B40 Elite. Given that it is much more expensive, it would be good to know what exactly are you going to get in B60 that you would not get on the basic model. Let's have a look at these featires one by one.
Three brewing sizesB60 Special Edition has three different brewing sizes. You can choose to brew 5.25, 7.25 and 9.25oz of coffee. The smallest 5.25oz brewing size will get you a nice cup of strong, flavorful coffee. If you like a robust cup of coffee then this feature alone may justify spending the extra money to get B60 Special Edition.
Adjustable brewing temperatureThere are two brewing temperatures to choose from. The standard 192°F is good for most users but if you like your coffee to be a bit less hot then you can brew it at 187°F. The lower temperature is handy when you make hot chocolate or tea for kids.
Programmable ON and OFF timeWhen you turn the Keurig coffee maker on you need to wait for three minutes for the machine to warm up. Don't like waiting? Easy - you can program the machine to switch itself on at a pre-set time. You can also set the time for the unit to switch itself off.
If you are using the coffee maker a lot it's best to leave it always on. If you drink coffee only in the morning you can set it to turn on before you get up and turn off after you go to work. You also have the option to set the machine to turn off at a specified period of time after the last brew.
LCD DisplayThe LCD control center with a blue light looks cool and it is easy to use. You can use it to set the time for the clock, to program the automatic on / off features or to set the brewing temperature. It will also alert you when you need to add water or when the machine is due for de-scaling.
Cool designThe Keurig Special Edition B60 looks great. The thing that immediately strikes you is the water reservoir with a blue light shining through it from the bottom. It looks simply stunning and you are likely to hear a lot of comments about that from your guests. There are also other nice touches like the chrome handle. These feature add a touch of class that you don't get with the Keurig B40.
The Keurig B60 Special Edition is the most popular Keurig coffee brewer and it has excellent customer reviews.
