Keurig B60 review
As with all Keurig coffee machines, there is no messy cleanup or grinding thanks to a one touch brewing process that involves selecting a K-cup, closing the lid, choosing a cup size and then waiting for a matter of minutes before your delicious coffee is ready for consumption.
Speaking of which, there are three cup sizes to choose from:
- 5-1/4 ounce robust cup
- 7-1/4 ounce regular cup
- 9-1/4 ounce travel mug
What you will enjoy about the Keurig B60 coffee maker
- For even greater flexibility the brewing temperature is also able to be set at the standard 192°F or a slightly cooler 187°F.
- The unit features a bright blue back lit LCD display that shows a 24 hour digital clock and programmable on/off sequence
- Descaling indicator that lets the user know when the machine has to be cleaned.
It should be noted that if you like a rich and bold cup of coffee, it is recommended you use the 9-1/4 ounce option only with the Extra Bold K-Cup coffee offerings, such as Double Black Diamond, Dark Magic, Sumatran Reserve and Espresso Blend. Some user reviews have noted that the coffee brew is weak the larger the size you brew so keep that in mind.
Some people are saying that the Keurig B60 makes a weak cup of coffee, but in general, it is a very easy thing to say given that the strength of any coffee will depend on the type of coffee used and also the cup size.
As always a bit of common sense will apply.
(If you want the flexibility and reliability of a Keurig machine with a more portable setup, please have a look at the Keurig B30 Mini Brewer which is just as good as the B60 but on a smaller scale.)
A word about K-Cups
The K-Cups can be hard to find in shops, and when you do eventually find them they can be pricey and the range can be limited. It would be wiser to just purchase your K-cups from Amazon itself, buying in bulk to save you the most money.
They sell 50 K-Cups, and it is by far better deal than buying in store. Remember purchase a variety pack if you are just beginning to taste test flavors to avoid getting stuck with a whole packet of K-cups that you don’t even like.
If you prefer not to use K-cups, you can buy a filter that allows you to place your ground coffee beans in the machine instead. It is ridiculously easy to use, and no paper filters are required. In addition to this, there are no grinds in the bottom of the cup, and you’ll never brew more coffee than you can drink.
Let’s face it; you are going to spend $4 buying a cup of coffee most days anyway. With the Keurig B60 coffee maker you can average about 40 cents per cup, maybe less if you shop around and buy in large quantities.
Even if money wasn’t your primary concern, you would surely enjoy the extreme ease of use, almost instantly available fresh coffee and little to no cleanup. That is what we all want in every coffee machine right?
The only difficulties you may face with this machine are finding available sources of K-Cups. Physical stores tend to have a limited range and internet sources tend to sell mostly in bulk, so if you end up disliking the flavor, then you have wasted your money. However, I suspect this will be a minor drawback.
