Breville BKC600XL Gourmet Single Cup Brewer - Stainless Steel K Cup Brewer Perfection

Breville Keurig Bkc600Xl

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...

I am interested in your review of this machine. My wife and I tried the B60 and found the drinks (especially the coffee) to be too weak and watery for our taste. It will be interesting to see if this machine offers stronger beverages than the B60, since that is the only thing keeping us from purchasing the B60.

I purchased a Breville BKC600XL. I was told that I could make both expresso & regular coffee but I can't find which k-cup to use. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I just bought the Keurig B60 and a reusable Kcup. I am having trouble brewing a strong cup of coffee (my husband is unimpressed). Any suggestions?

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.

Just bought this machine at BBandB. (20% off) Fantastic -works like a charm. Is very quiet and easy to use. I highly recommend.

Also, would this brewer be compatible with the recently reviewed Perfect Pod Holster? It's a beautiful machine and it would be great if it had the capability to use coffee pods through that system also.

Look forward to the review!

We'll have the machine in a few days. I'll take a look at the two, and also ask this question to Breville.

Jay, can you comment on how the Breville's shower screen differs from the B70's improved injection needle? I'm wondering if the Breville has the same new kind of turbulence-inducing injection needle(s), or if it has some other arrangement for infusing the coffee that might be even better than the B70's.
