Keurig Platinum B70 Single-Cup Brewer Arrives for Review
We've just received the new Keurig Platinum B70 Single-Cup brewer. Will it replace our trusted Keurig B60 in the Single Serve Coffee test kitchen? We sure hope so. With improvements over the B50 and B60, the Keurig B70 gives you a set of new features including a 60 oz water reservoir, and even a new cup size for brewing at 11.25 oz. We also like the new footprint of the Keurig Platinum B70 Single-Cup brewer and hope the smaller size fits even better under our kitchen cabinets. Expect a full review soon!

Jay, a couple things that would be interesting for your review to cover if possible: first, does the B70's new Quiet Brew mechanism produce a better tasting cup than the B60? Also, one thing I've noticed with my B60 and I wonder if the B70 does the same thing--when you select the 9.25 ounce drop size on the B60, before it begins to brew it pumps additional water into the boiler. I've always figured this was a "hack" to make up for the unit being basedon the B50, which didn't brew at that size. It seems like a compromise because the water probably doesn't get up to full brew temp before the brew cycle starts. I wonder if the B70 does this same kind of "second fill" operation before starting a brew at either or both of the larger brew volumes.
