Enjoy a fresh cup of gourmet coffee, tea or hot cocoa in less than a minute, without any set-up or clean-up. The Breville BKC600XL Gourmet Single Cup Coffee Brewer brews a single cup of fresh coffee, tea or hot cocoa at the touch of a button with its revolutionary brewing technology. A patented showerhead delivers a precise amount of water through the K-Cup at an ideal temperature and pressure for optimal flavor extraction. Choose one of four brew sizes (11.25oz, 9.25oz, 7.25oz and 5.25 oz) and program the brew temperature with the easy-read, backlit LCD screen and easy-to-use controls. The backlit 60 ounce capacity tank brews up to 10 cups before refilling and includes an optional water filtration system to reduce substances that affect the smell and taste of water. Keurig's popular coffee, tea and hot cocoa brands offer over 150 different types of K-Cup beverages from 13 gourmet brands.
The best coffee is always the freshest coffee. That's why it makes no sense to brew by the pot: by the time you get around to drinking most of the joe, it's been sitting in a carafe (or worse, on top of a burner), going more bitter and stale with each minute. The Breville single-cup brewer takes a different tack. It makes coffee one cup at a time, so each cup tastes as fresh as the first one in the pot. Each cup is also 100% customized--by brew temperature, by grind, by varietal, even by cup size--so it's perfect for households or dinner parties in which everyone likes a different brew. Best of all, the brewing process is very, very difficult to mess up. The Breville's patented "showerhead" sprays a precisely calibrated amount of water through a "K-Cup," a technology made famous by Keurig's single-cup brewers, using temperature and pressure designed to extract the maximum amount of flavor from the grounds. More than 150 pre-packed K-Cups are available for beverages ranging from hot chocolate to organic dark-roast Columbian, produced by roasters from Tully's to Green Mountain Coffee.
Like all of this company's handsomely designed kitchen equipment, the Breville single-cup coffee brewer is aesthetically gorgeous and feels solidly constructed. It's made from heavy-duty stainless steel with a die-cast safety locking arm, and comes with an internal water filter system to remove impurities that can impart off flavors and smells. A backlit reservoir holds 60 ounces of water and can brew up to 10 cups before it needs refilling; the programmable LCD screen has a refreshingly easy-to-use interface. The Breville single-cup coffee brewer measures 14-3/4 by 12-3/4 by 16-3/4 inches --Mary Park
