Review: Keurig B155 Single Cup Small Office Coffee Brewer
It's no surprise we've had a B155 Small to Medium office brewer for over a month here at Single Serve Coffee (and it just got replaced by a Keurig Mini Plus which we'll review this week too). We have to say a 90oz reservoir, and the touchscreen LCD display are things every single serve coffee drinker would love, and we really love this brewer not just for a home office but also for any home.
Take that K-cup! How about some 198F water?
The brewer footprint is also not as big as you would imagine, and yes unlike any home brewer you can crank the temperature up to 198 degrees F instead of a home brewer's limit of 192F. Other than that - it's a very well designed good looking brewer. Because of the LCD touch screen - you will also see various pictures flash by like coffee plantations etc. as it brews.
Not as big s you'd think.
Key Features of the Keurig B155 Single Cup Brewer
The Keurig Commercial Series B155 is specially designed for use in small to medium sized businesses, medical offices and home offices and offers more ways to personalize the coffee brewing experience. It includes a new one-of-a-kind, interactive touchscreen interface that allows users to walk through a variety of functions, and an easy to fill, removable water reservoir - their largest at 90 ounces - can make up to 18 cups of coffee before needing a refill.
Like all Keurig brewers, the B155 uses Keurig's patented K-Cup portion packs eliminating the hassle of grinding beans, measuring coffee, handling filters and messy clean-up while brewing a gourmet cup of coffee or tea in less than one minute. With over 200 different coffee, tea and hot cocoa options to choose from, everyone in the office can find something they want to consume.

single serve coffee.
Coffee Quality and Tea from K-Cups
So we tried a variety of K-Cups from extra bold to milder roasts. Ultimately we didn't like brewing the coffee at the 198F mark and settled for 194F. Tea however was much better at the higher temp setting, but switching the setting will make you have to shut off the brewer and change the temp to set it. There may be another quick way, but we couldn't figure it out.
So do we recommend getting one of these brewers over the home models? Well if you really do need a larger brewer, then at just $249 - it's a steal. The 90 oz reservoir does really make refilling a thing of the past, and it's just well cool to have a top of the line brewer with a touch screen on it.
There is a ton of options to set on the brewer touch screen.
We want to thank Keurig for sending us the B155 single cup small and medium office brewer to review.

Update:The Keurig B155 does not work with the My K-cup reusable coffee filter. So if you want to use your own coffee with the My K-cup this is not currently supported.
