Sometimes we forget to update our numbers, and this year the BKC600XL was replaced with the BKC700XL by Breville. What's the difference and what are all these strange numbers? The Breville Gourmet Single Cup Brewer features a 1500-watt single-cup coffeemaker with quiet pump technology and "showerhead" spray. The quiet part is new and welcome, as the older model was pretty noisy (you can read our full review of the Breville Single Cup brewer here).
The Breville Gourmet Single Cup Brewer also features an LCD control panel; digital clock with auto on/off; 5 brew strengths; variable brew temperature, and a removable 60-ounce water tank with charcoal water filter. And as the name implies, the iced-beverage function can be used for iced tea or coffee. The brewer also includes a sample variety pack of K-Cup coffee pods, a reusable My K-Cup, and a measuring spoon.
Breville has updated their K-Cup brewer with the ultra quiet brew technology. This has to be our only complaint about the previous model - it was loud. The Breville Gourmet Single Serve Coffee Maker also features a powerful 1,500-watt heating element brews coffee efficiently fast to five different brew sizes. It has a Sleek stainless-steel design. Also new is the iced beverage function which dispenses a concentrated 3-1/2-ounce shot of tea or coffee. Dilute with ice and add water, milk or sweeteners for an iced tea or coffee.
Accessories include charcoal water filter, My K-CUP for your own roast, measuring scoop, 18 K-Cup variety pack. One of the best features about the Breville Gourmet Single Serve Coffee maker is the integrated My K-Cup and spoon - it's just too cool to pop open the top and store it away.
Breville is widely known for making exceptional small kitchen appliances, and for producing very attractive small appliances. We were very excited to find out that indeed Keurig and Breville had teamed up this year to introduce a high end Keurig brewer designed by Breville. The results are exceptional - a very polished interesting staineless steel design, with Keurig K Cup brewing technology, and all the features you can get in any Keurig machine - including the reuseable My K Cup integrated into the machine allowing you to use your own ground coffee instead of K Cups, and a charcoal water filter in the tank reservoir.
We know everyone is really excited about the Breville BKC600XL Gourmet Single Cup Brewer, and is anxious for a review and first impressions. So - instead of making you wait for too long as we do our testing, the staff here at Single Serve Coffee thought you might enjoy this short film.
The Breville BKC600XL Gourmet Single Cup Brewer has arrived for review. We'll have a full unboxing and also first impressions soon. So far our initial impression is the Breville BKC600XL Gourmet Single Cup Brewer is heavy - and we think it's from all that glorious stainless steel. At $299 it had better be heavy, as this is the most expensive and feature laden Keurig single serve coffee maker that uses both K Cups and ground coffee to date.

We've recently gotten word the new Breville/Keurig machine will be coming out this Fall in Q4 2007. Way back in March (and thanks to a post in the forums for a reminder), we got news Breville and Keurig had launched into a partnership to make a new Keurig brewer. The Breville machine will use Keurig K-Cups, and be compatible with all existing K Cups. So, this will allow any new Breville/Keurig brewer owner to choose between Keurig's 150+ varieties of coffee, tea and hot cocoa K-Cups. Currently, Keurig offers K-Cups from Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Diedrich, Gloria Jean's, Timothy's, Van Houtte, Celestial Seasonings, Bigelow, Twinings, Tully's and Caribou Coffee.
