Keurig B60 Special Edition Gourmet Single Cup Home Brewing System
The keurig model b60 is a single cup coffee maker that makes it easy to brew coffee, tea and hot chocolate in just under a minute, is easy to use and hardly needs any cleanup after. It features a 48 ounce reservoir that’s good for about 8-9 cups of coffee, and then you have to take it out, refill and put it back in. Don’t worry; it’s very easy to do.
There are several new features the B60 has, that aren’t available on the lower cost B31 and B40. You now have the possibility to choose between three cup sizes – the 9.25 oz being ideal for travel mugs, you can adjust the water temperature for the brewing, ranging from 187 degrees to 192 degrees in one degree increments and also you have full control over brewing time so you can get a cup of coffee just the way you like it.
The drip tray is removable for easy cleaning and a blue backlit LCD display functions both as a digital clock and an on/off timer to have your machine already brewing when you wake up. The Keurig B60 has a modern, sleek design, with a black body, steel drip tray and chrome face plate and handle.
Using the Keurig B60 is a very simple task. First you have to fill the reservoir with enough water, reattach it to the body and turn the machine on. Then, when the LCD display reads “Ready to Brew”, you open the lid, put your favorite K-Cup inside, close back the lid, select a cup size and press the brewing button. In just about one minute, there will be a fresh, steaming cup of hot coffee (or tea, or chocolate) ready for you to drink.

Other pros and things worth mentioning:
Aside from the things already mentioned, one of the biggest pros for the Keurig B60 and Keurig coffee makers in general, is the wide variety of K-cups available to use with it.
There are over 150 coffee, tea and hot chocolate flavors of K-Cups, with many of them coming from world famous makers such as Starbucks, Green Mountain Roasters, Timothy’s and Gloria Jean’s. Even better, you can use the My K-cup reusable coffee filter with ANY brand of coffee, so you’re not confined to the K-Cup choices.
Another thing that helps a lot is the height of the brew platform, which allows for pretty much any mug to fit under the brew spot. Other machines with lower clearance require that you use a regular mug first to brew your coffee and then pour it into your travel mug.
And finally, the Keurig B60 requires very little maintenance and cleanup – no pot, no carafe, no coffee filter, unless you opt for the My K-cup which is easy to rinse clean. The machine also includes a descale indicator which will tell you when it needs to be descaled (usually once every 3-6 months) – but fear not, this is as simple as running a brew cycle with vinegar to remove any calcium mineral buildup from the lines.
The three cup sizes offer you the possibility to brew just as much coffee as you need, but be aware that the flavor may vary with the size, as the amount of water affects the strength of the brew. So if you find the coffee to be a little weak and you usually prefer espresso or dark roast coffees, you might want to take a look at extra bold K-Cups like Dark Magic from Green Mountain Coffee or another dark roast flavor to ensure you get a strong, rich cup of coffee.
The Final Verdict:
The Keurig B60 is an ideal coffee maker for everyone, the single cup system allowing each member of the family to enjoy their preferred flavor of coffee at the same time, with little waste. The wide variety of K-Cups available, along with its quick brew ability, plenty of features and ease of use make the B60 the best buy in single cup coffee makers, especially if you don’t need the extra features (and extra price) of the more expensive B70 Platinum.
Where to buy:
I recommend buying the Keurig B60 at Amazon.com: Keurig B60 Special Edition Brewing System. Amazon usually have the best price for Keurig coffee makers and they come with free shipping.
