Review Of The Keurig B60 Single Cup Coffee Maker
The Keurig K Cup single cup brewing systems have taken the market leadership for single cup coffee makers during the last few years. They are by far the most popular system and the K Cup system offers the widest variety of beverages of all the single cup coffee brewing systems. Keurig itself has a lineup of different single cup coffee machines where you can find a matching model for your needs. The Keurig B60 Single Cup Coffee Maker is the mid-level model and is a great fit for the average family. Everybody can easily and simply brew their own beverage to their liking.

You can find any kind of beverage for the K Cup system. The coffee varieties you can find are endless and range from Green Mountain Coffee to Newman’s Own Organics to Timothy’s World Coffee to Caribou Coffee. You can find many different tea varieties and hot chocolates. There’s no taste or beverage variety you could not find in K Cups.
Best use of the Keurig B60 Single Cup Coffee Maker
The Keurig B60 Single Cup Coffee Maker provides a reasonably sized water reservoir of 48 oz. This is enough water for up to 8 small cups of coffee. In our opinion that is a great size for the average family that occasionally has friends and guests over. If there’s a lot of coffee drinkers in the house then you might not like to have to refill the water quite that often and a system with a larger water tank is better suited in that case ((see our Keurig B70 Single Cup Coffee Maker Review).
The Keurig B60 Single Cup Coffee Maker brews a cup of coffee in around one minute. It needs approximately 4 minutes to heat up the water initially and then another reheat period of around 15 seconds or so between brews. You can realistically get around 7 to 8 cups of coffee out in a 10 minute period. This seems to use like a reasonable speed if you sometimes have larger groups of people over.
Personalization features of the Keurig B60 Single Cup Coffee Maker
The Keurig B60 Single Cup Coffee Maker is also capable of brewing three different cup sizes. You can brew a 5.25 oz cup, a 7.25 oz cup or a 9.25 oz cup. This will not let you fill one of the big travel mugs with a single brew but it does allow you to vary both the brew strength as well as the size within a reasonable range.
Another feature the Keurig B60 Single Cup Coffee Maker has is the ability to vary the temperature of the water when you brew a beverage. The temperature range goes from 187° F to 192° F. By default the temperature is set to 192° F. Changing the temperature simply allows you to get a slightly cooler cup of coffee, tea or hot chocolate. For some beverages it might also allow to bring out the best aroma, specifically when you think of different kinds of tea.
