Breville BKC600XL Gourmet Single Cup Brewer - Stainless Steel K Cup Brewer Perfection
The Breville USA Gourmet Single Cup Brewer BKC600XL looks like it came straight out of ten forward. The design has what we would like to call - "stainless", as there's no single inch on this machine sans the controls that doesn't come covered in glorious stainless steel. The Breville BKC600XL Gourmet Single Cup Brewer is also filled with new features not present in other Keurig single serve coffee makers. There is an included My Cup Reuseable coffee filter complete with storage bay in the top, along with the first Keurig single serve coffee maker to have a charcoal water filter in the water tank. The Breville BKC600XL Gourmet Single Cup Brewer is also completely compatible with over 150+ varieties of Keurig K Cups - from coffee, to cocoa, and tea. The Breville BKC600XL Gourmet Single Cup Brewer is priced at $299, making it the most expensive Keurig single serve coffee maker for the home.
Here's a run down of all the features with pictures and briefs, and of course - we'll have a full review soon...

In your review, *please* specifically compare the operation and coffee taste in the Breville, the B70, and the newest Cuisinart you just reviewed. Want to know if the charcoal filter is really worth it, and whether the K-cups taste better/worse than the pods in these machines, and which of these three is the better value -- especially for people who like strong coffee/espresso. Thanks!
I saw the Breville at Bed Bath and Beyond. As far as I can tell it's basically a B70 in thin metal cladding. Features and injection nozzle appear to be the same. The only things that seems to differentiate it, other than cosmetics, are the charcoal filter, the included My Kcup (worth $15) and the slot for stowing the My Kcup. Hardly worth the $100 premium IMHO. I actually like the cosmetics on the B70 better, and the price much better.
