I bought a Keurig after reading all of the reviews about it. I thought to myself, surely this machine has a lot of hype to live up to.
Not only did it pass the hype test, it did so with flying colors.
Let me just say that if you are doing research on this machine, you will discover that people just rave about it. Review after review say it is worth the investment.
Add this review to that list.
It works not just as a coffee maker, there are also tea K-Cups available and it also can be used to heat water in less than 20 seconds. So if you have a tea bag and just want hot water, there is not need to use a kettle. Ever.
You can buy a filter that allows you to place your own GROUND beans in the machine and make your favorite coffee blend.
It is ridiculously easy to use. No paper filters needed. No grinds in the bottom of the cup. No wasting away of drinking coffee in the morning.
KEURIG'S CUSTOMER SERVICE ALONE MAKES THIS A BEST BUY. If you have ANY problems, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, Keurig operators are at the ready. I once called then at midnight because I thought I was having an issue setting up the machine. The customer service guy (had a Boston accent) was very nice and answered all my questions. He also registered the machine (it was a "gift"- to myself :-)), so there was no need to mail in the warranty card.
The blue LED lights are the best kept secret about this machine. It is very modern and fits into any kitchen, both during the day and at night.
The K-Cups are hard to find in stores. I have only seen Bed Bath and Beyond sell K Cups in the store. 18 k-cups for $10??? That's ridiculous. ENTER AMAZON... They sell 50 K-Cups for $19.00. That is a better deal by FAR. You would be well to do to buy a coffee variety pack so you can see which one is the best for you. You don't want to get stuck with 50 K-cups of a flavor you don't like.
If you are having a group of people over, it's definitely easier to make a 12-cup batch of coffee. Some people may not like having to use 12 K-cups (a K-Cup for each guest). But here's the thing. Every single person will comment on how good their coffee is. You can then show them the Keurig, and it’s a great conversation piece.
The B60 is a good compromise among the Keurig models. You can save your money and not spend $30 for a larger water reservoir. So you get a travel mug size of 11.25(?) oz. in the B70. So what? The 9.etc oz. cup size is plenty big for most coffee mugs once you mix in the creamer.
Let's be frank. It's expensive. But honestly, the investment is worth it. Trust the reviews about the machine. People are more inclined to write a review if they really love a product or it they really hate a product. Obliviously, people love this machine, and for good reason.
It is economical to buy this machine if you hate wasting $2, $3 or $4 at a coffee shop for your coffee in the morning. The per-cup average is about 40 cents, but for the long term, this machine pays itself off.
If you're reading this review, you obviously care about what other people think before you spend $100 on a freaking coffee maker. Don't worry. I was in your shoes. But there is a peace of mind that comes along knowing that you made the right choice. Do as much research as you can and get as many opinions as you can. But just remember that thousands of satisfied Keurig customers can't be wrong.
The Keurig B60 Coffee Maker is an excellent addition to anyones kitchen. My wife and I love coffee but we have been cutting down on the amount of coffee we have been drinking. So with our traditional pots we were throwing out half a pot or more a day.
Enter the Keurig and the K-cup system. With this system we can make a single cup of coffee per K-cup and the coffee is incredible! The coffee is on par with some of your high end well known coffee shops!
The Keurig has a water reserve on it to store water. This reserve is about 10-12 cups of coffee. The maker has to sizes of coffee cups on it (small/large). You also have the ability to set an on and off time for the system so that it is waiting for you when you get up.
To use the system is easy. You open a small sliding tray and insert a K-cup. You push it back in and hit the button. Tada, coffee. :) Clean up is simple and the coffee brews in under 30 seconds.
The K-cups can be interesting to find. They also can be expensive, if you do not shop around. You can purchase light, dark, medium, flavoured, teas, hot chocolates, and fair roast coffees. Many different types are available! :)
The k-cups have a filter in them and actually brew coffee. They are quick to use and easy to dispose of. You can also purchase a reusable filter for your machine. That way you can put in your own coffee for your use. So if you don't like the flavour of the k-cups that are commercially made you can brew your own coffee.
There are a number of makers and sellers for K-cups. Van Houttee, Green Mountain, Tullys, Second Cup, and many many more! When shopping for k-cups go to these companies web sites and you'll get deals. Also, check at some of your commercial coffee companies that sell to other companies. I found k-cups for sale at one of the ones in my city and they are way cheaper then anywhere else!
This is a stylish machine that offers a great fast brew. You can also purchase light, medium, and dark roast coffees. Along with coffees you can get teas and hot chocolates.
I'm in LOVE with my Keurig B60. From the salivating aroma of a newly opened can of coffee to the mouth-watering smell and taste of freshness every time a cup is brewed--I am hooked! Being the only coffee drinker in my household and very particular about my coffee being FRESHLY brewed, I can have the best of both worlds with the Keurig single brew k-cups. No more waste of extra, stale coffee being poured out, always freshly brewed cups of coffee from a "just opened" container (the k-cups), this is the coffee maker for me. The K-cups are a little pricey; however, previously I found myself throwing out partial cans of opened coffee because they had lost their just opened freshness and taste. Plus, I have been a one- or two-cup drinker cutting down to mostly weekends because I was not enjoying the coffee as much and it wasn't as convenient. When I had a coffee craving, I would purchase a large coffee from a well-known coffee shop which can really get expensive. Now, with the convenience and freshness I desire, I am drinking coffee in the mornings and even some evenings, as well, and really enjoying it. My grown son, whom I did not realize drank coffee, has started fixing a cup when he stops by to drop off his dog on the way to work. (My house is his doggie day care.) I first got hooked when I visited my sister in Montana this past summer. (I live in Texas.) She had the Keurig Platinum B70 and delighted in showing it off. I got hooked at that point and had wanted one ever since so I was thrilled when my husband had one under the Christmas tree for me. He had purchased the smaller model which we took back but were unable to exchange for the larger model locally because the store had sold out. I preferred the larger model because of the water storage tank and the three cup sizes. I am a mug drinker so I needed the larger 10 oz. size to adequately fill my cup. If I were to purchase another, I would probably move on up to the B70 because of even more choices (5 cup sizes); however, the B60 gives a 6 oz., 8 oz, and 10 oz serving which will accommodate most cups. At night, to enjoy a cup I have to drink decaf so this allows me to have both caffeinated and decaf on hand and always fresh. Plus, the hot cocoa and chai teas are great, too. This allows me to offer guests exactly what they like--multiple choices from one machine, always fresh with that "just opened" smell each time you make a cup!! It doesn't get any better than that. Within seconds, a new cup is brewed and in the cup so there is no long wait to accommodate multiple drinkers. If I had large numbers of guests, I would probably use my traditional coffee maker to brew a whole pot but for a few people, this is very accommodating. I have heard complaints about coffee maker being noisy; however, I have not found that in the special edition B60. I am pleased and find it the best for my situation and preferences. If you are a fanatic for freshly-brewed coffee, this is the machine for you!!
I bought the Keurig Special Edition B60 coffee maker for my husband for Christmas. He had fallen in love with one when we were at the Home Builder's Association, and had wanted one ever since. I am always looking for a deal, so last year I bought a coffee maker that I thought was similar to this one. IT WAS NOT AT ALL. It was one of those coffee makers that has a reservoir that stores 44oz of coffee in the back of it. And you push a button to dispense the coffee whenever you are ready for a cup. Well, it ended up getting shelved and not used much because it was not convenient at all, and was very hard to clean. Then, I bought the Keurig this Christmas, and it is as good as it gets! I have become a coffee lover because of this machine. It's the most convenient appliance that we own. When you wake up in the morning, it's there waiting on you...with the water warmed and pretty blue light on. I think if the Keurig could talk it would probably say something like, "Good morning good looking, how 'bout a cup of coffee?" HAHA! Ant then, you just choose what flavor K-Cup you are in the mood for and in about 8 seconds you have a fresh brewed cup of great coffee. The K-Cups come in so many different varieties that you could have a different cup of coffee each morning for months. The BEST! I promise, you will not be disappointed!
I was once a weekend only coffee drinker. Actually, a coffee waster when you consider that hubby and I would make a pot of Joe that throw over half of it away. That all changed when we brought home the Keurig coffee brewer.
This machine is ultra easy to use, simple to clean, and it brews great tasting coffee and tea. It is a highly appreciated luxury. It produces piping hot beverages in way under a minute with your choice of brewing strength. Entertaining is even more delightful by the wonderful service of Keurig’s swiftly served single cups of hot beverage. Guests simply choose what they want when they want with no waiting. It is terrific.
Operating instructions: Fill removable water reservoir, open lid, put K-cup in, close lid, press button for beverage size, seconds later brewing is complete. Clean up by opening lid and throwing used K-cup away. Rinse out removable trip tray if needed. How easy is that?!
The Keurig uses K-cups. These premeasured, sealed, fresh gourmet coffees and teas can be found on Ebay, Amazon, other online locations, as well as some brick and mortar stores like Kohls, Target, or Bed, Bath, and Beyond. They come in a multitude of flavors. Prices vary so shop around.
I'll sum it up like this: Get it. You’ll love it.
(I also have an in-depth review on this machine at epinions and amazon.)
This Keurig is expensive, but it is the perfect coffee maker! The Special Edition, B60 model has a reservoir for water, so all you do is lift the lid, drop in your flavor of K-cup and press the button for your cup size and you have the perfect cup of coffee, tea, hot chocolate or hot water in seconds - right in your favorite mug! Simple as that! No measuring coffee grounds, no filters to mess with. The K-cups are also pricey, but the convenience of no-mess, fresh, single cup, on demand, makes up for it. If mine died today, I'd get another one just like it. I also like it's clean, sleek black and chrome design with blue led lights.
I love this coffee maker primarily for the convenience it offers. My wife and I used to argue over who would get up in the morning and put on a pot of coffee. Now, we just get up, pop in a K-cup of our favorite flavor, and less than a minute later, we've got a fresh brewed cup of coffee. It's ready even quicker, if we've programmed the time to have the unit turn itself on, already -- but it heats the water so quickly, that function is hardly necessary.
The B60 looks great, too, with it's chrome accents and drip pan. The water tank is extremely easy to remove and replace; or, simply remove the lid, and fill it from a pitcher. The tank hlds 48 ounces of water, which is enough to keep you going all morning. Clean up simply involves dumping the used K-cup and periodically cleaning the drip pan. That's nothing compared to removing and dumping the used coffee filter (from a drip brewer)and having to clean the pot and filter holder. PLUS -- no more left over, wasted coffee that has to be dumped!
I have two very small gripes:
1 -- the priming period is actually longer than the inistructions indicate. It takes a few brew cycles to get rid of the bitter machine taste; afterwards, though -- nothing but fresh coffee taste.
2 -- the machine makes a little noise as it sucks water out of the tank for each brew. The pump makes the machine vibrate enough to cause the drip pan to rattle, too. The combined noises are not necessarily loud, just annoying at times. The machine would be PERFECT if they somehow incorporated some dampers to insulate that noise and vibration.
Finally, K-cups (the coffee) are available in a variety of flavors/blends, from a variety of sources and at very reasonable prices. I have memberships with a couple of coffee distributors who offer free shipping when you buy 4 or more boxes of K-cups. Each box contains 24 k-cups, so 4 boxes is a total of 96 K-cups and the price for those 4 boxes is about 45.00. That comes to just under $.50/cup of coffee -- a lot cheaper than Starbucks! And, a lot more convenient, too.
I really enjoy this coffee machine because of so many reasons. For starters, it literally makes your coffee and has it ready within 10 seconds. No brewing and waiting at all. Secondly, there is no coffee mess or dishes to clean because it is a single cup maker. The coffee is perfectly made every time because you dont have to guess how much grinds to put in because the Kcups are made for each cup. There are different size options which is also awesome. Its great and any/every coffee drinker should have one of these for their homes. I bought it for my boyfriend because he drinks coffee before work but is always in a rush and doesnt have time to make coffee. The only downfall to this is that you need to buy special K-cup coffee containers which are a little more pricey than a bag of maxwell house. Not many companies make kcups yet but im sure they will soon. You can purchase a small piece that allows you to use any kind of coffee even dunkin donuts but thats if you are picky like us.
This is by far the best kitchen purchase I have ever made, next to my microwave! The Keurig B60 is the best coffee maker and it's perfect for me. My husband doesn't drink coffee, and I only like about a cup a day, so making an entire pot would be a huge waste. This brewer is so convenient and easy to use, especially for a working mom. There is no mess to clean up and it requires no measuring. Even my 9 year old son enjoys making me a cup of coffee, that's how easy it is to use. It is also very attractive and has this cool blue lighting. I am saving a fortune by not going through Starbuck's drive-thru every morning. The coffee is delicious and always fresh. You never get that "burnt" flavor. There is such a huge variety of flavors of K-cups made by several different companies. I recommend getting a few of the variety boxes so you can sample them to see which are your favorites, and then you can purchase entire boxes of those favorites later. I find myself drinking hot tea in the evenings more often because it is so easy to make! My Keurig is programmable, but I never use that feature because it brews my cup in less than a minute, why would you need to set it up ahead of time?! While you cannot purchase K-cups at most grocery stores, I have found them at Kohl's, Bed Bath & Beyond, Linens-N-Things, E-bay, and of course on the Keurig website and the different websites of the coffee manufacturers that produce the K-cups for the brewer. Don't worry about the expiration dates on the K-cups. I have brewed several that were past their dates, and they were just as delicious as when they were brand new. I got hooked on this machine at the clinic where I had my lasik surgery, and then another patient informed me that she went online to search for them because she too was in love with it. She told me that you can buy a "home sized" edition, actually a few different brewers to choose from. My friends and family make fun of me because I won't shut up about my coffee maker, but they don't have one, so they just don't understand!
I never liked coffee because I couldn't make it to save my life! Either too bitter, too weak, boring, etc. With the Keurig B60, you get a perfect cup of coffee every time with no waste as you make it fresh each cup. And no thinking or special skill as the "k-cups" (pre-packaged coffee cups made for single serves-and mutiple flavored) provide easy clean up and perfect coffee with just a push of the button. No wasted coffee as you only make what you drink-so no sitting around for hours to either be thrown away or to be re-heated and then thrown away because it now tastes like dirt! I cannot talk enough about this gadget. It is the best thing since sliced bread. My ranting about this made my sister go out and buy one and now she's a believer. And for those who do not like coffee no matter how many flavors are available, the k-cups come available with different teas and hot chocolate. The point is, there are no mistakes and hardly any clean up except for the one cup you drank out of. I promise you, you will not regret the purchase. Matter of fact, I would give you a money back guarantee if I was in the position of doing so-which I am not- so you just have to trust me on this one! :-)
