Breville BKC700XL Gourmet Single-Serve Coffeemaker with Iced-Beverage Function

41ObSBUg+3L._SL500_AA300_.jpg

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.

Tim_SummerRas.jpg

Timothy's Sweet Summer Raspberry K-Cup Coffee is a seasonal limited edition K-Cup, so if you even want to try this coffee you'll need to act fast. We've yet to try it, but the raspberry flavors coupled with the exceptional smoothness of Timothys coffees in general, makes us think this might be an amazing iced coffee.

The Timothy's Sweet Summer Raspberry K-Cup Coffee will work in your Keurig Elite B40 Brewer, Keurig B50, Keurig Special Edition Ultra Elite B60, Keurig Platinum B70 Brewer, Breville BKC600XL Gourmet Single Cup Brewer , and other Keurig K Cup brewers including the Keurig Mini B30.

41JnSKpsBGL._SL500_AA300_.jpg

We simply couldn't wait to do a formal larger review of all the Wolfgang Puck K-Cups, so we decided to do a lightning review of one our favorite Wolfgang Puck K-Cups so far - the Wolfgang Puck French Roast K-Cups. This coffee is truly bold and intense as advertised, with a spicy chocolate note to each cup. We've been drinking this over the past week, and we can safely say 1 box is not going to be enough.

These K-Cups will work in your Keurig Elite B40 Brewer, Keurig B50, Keurig Special Edition Ultra Elite B60, Keurig Platinum B70 Brewer, Breville BKC600XL Gourmet Single Cup Brewer , and other Keurig K Cup brewers including the Keurig Mini B30.

Re-Review: Coffee People Original Donut Shop K-Cups

Review Single Serve Coffee

coffeepeople_donut_shop.jpg

According to Coffee People's website, they got their start at the Saturday Market in Eugene, Oregon back in the early '80s, selling small batches of roasted specialty coffee to market goers. Soon after in 1983, they opened their first coffeehouse in Portland, Oregon. Later in 1999, they were acquired by the Diedrich Coffee Family who in turn took over the roasting duties of their beans from them. The rest is history and has formed the Coffee People brand (now headquartered in Irvine, California) many people have come to know & love today.

We decided to revisit "the holy grail of K-Cups" which just about everyone & their grandma appear to adore (based on various forum comments & other site reviews): Coffee People Original Donut Shop K-Cups. Yes, before many competitors started releasing their own imitation versions, Coffee People were one of the 1st companies to release a donut shop coffee in K-Cup format, so they can be considered the pioneers in that sense and it's likely why their website shows "The Original" added to this K-Cup's name (the K-Cups we purchased didn't have this printed on them).

Review: Green Mountain Donut House Chocolate Glazed Donut K-Cups

Review Single Serve Coffee

IMGP3863.JPG

We have to admit that when we first heard Green Mountain was introducing donut-flavored coffees in their recent Donut House series of K-Cups, the only thought that sprung to mind was "yeah, right". Could they really capture the taste experience of biting into the flavor's namesake donut? We set off to find out if this truly was the case and opted for their Donut House Blend Chocolate Glazed Donut K-Cups this time around.

As any Green Mountain K-Cup fan will know, they have a reputation for making some pretty spot-on flavorings when it comes to their flavored coffee K-Cups (Island Coconut, anyone?), so our hopes were set high right off the bat. Needless to say, we had nothing to worry about. Upon brewing, rich chocolate aromas filled the room and left us wondering just how the heck the flavor geniuses at GMCR managed to pull it off... the scent was exactly like fresh baked chocolate glazed donuts at our favorite local donut shop and it even had some of our staff fooled as they rushed the Single Serve Coffee kitchens looking for a box.

Brew Over Ice Coffee and Tea K-Cups

brewovericedkcups.jpg

Brew over Iced Coffee K-Cups and Brew Over Iced Tea K-Cups are available for summer, and we're pretty excited they came with enough time to order them for the upcoming hot weather. Green Mountain Coffee Nantucket Blend and French Vanilla Iced Coffee in K-Cups are both available in this format. Both K-Cups are based on the popular hot versions of their namesakes, but are specially blended to provide full flavor when brewed into a cup of ice.

For iced tea lovers, two new Celestial Seasonings Perfect Iced Teas are debuting: Half and Half (part black tea, part lemonade) and Southern Sweet Tea. These new K-Cups join the four Perfect Iced Tea varieties introduced last summer: Sweet Lemon Black Tea, Sweet Peach Black Tea, Sweet Raspberry Black Tea and Black Tea Unsweetened.

These K-Cups will work in your Keurig Elite B40 Brewer, Keurig B50, Keurig Special Edition Ultra Elite B60, Keurig Platinum B70 Brewer, Breville BKC600XL Gourmet Single Cup Brewer , and other Keurig K Cup brewers including the Keurig Mini B30.

Review: Café Escapes Chai Latte K-Cups for Keurig

Review Single Serve Coffee

IMGP3854.JPG

It's been a while since we've reviewed anything in Green Mountain's Café Escapes lineup, so we decided to try one of their newer varieties... Café Escapes Chai Latte K-Cups. Although we briefly touched on these K-Cups several months ago, we wanted to give a more fleshed-out full review as we're sure some of you were waiting for us to do.

The Café Escapes Chai Latte K-Cups are billed as having "flavors of black tea and exotic spices, smoothed by a splash of milk and sugar", it should also be noted that traditional flavors of cinnamon, cloves & cardamom along with slight notes of honey are also present in this K-Cup. We were curious to see just how creamy this flavor was going to be since we're adding nothing but water here and unlike Tassimo's Twinings variety, there's no separate creamer disc/K-Cup. When comparing the two, they're pretty well even in terms of taste. Some may find that this K-Cup has a slightly stronger sucralose aftertaste than the T-Discs but we found it was about the same either way.
