Review: Keurig B155 Single Cup Small Office Coffee Brewer


Review Single Serve Coffee
b155-brewer.jpg

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.

Keurig Mini Plus B 31 and B32 Personal Single Serve Coffee Brewer

b31-feature-default-plat_allcoors.jpg

There's a new Keurig Mini in town - the Keurig Mini Plus Personal Brewer! The Keurig MINI Plus Personal Brewer is ideal for gourmet coffee, tea and hot cocoa drinkers who want a brewer that is compact and easy-to-use in the home or even home office. The difference between the Keurig Mini B30 and the MINI Plus is the fact the Mini Plus allows you to brew 6, 8 or 10 ounces to get the strength you desire in under 2 minutes with no water left in the reservoir, where as the Keurig Mini B30 only allows you one cup size.

We'll have a full review of the Keurig Mini Plus B32 Personal Brewer soon, but in the mean time check out our review of the Keurig Mini B30.

  • Offered in Three Colors: Red, Black, Platinum
  • 3 Brew Sizes: 6 oz, 8 oz. & 10 oz.*
  • Brews in under 2 minutes
  • Removable drip tray
  • Auto-Off
  • Cord storage

If you want a larger Keurig brewer you may want to look at the Keurig Elite B40 Brewer, Keurig B50, Keurig Special Edition Ultra Elite B60, Keurig Platinum B70 Brewer, and the Breville BKC600XL Gourmet Single Cup Brewer.

Tassimo T20 Single Serve Coffee and Hot Beverage System

bosch-tassimo-t20-206574.jpg

We've had several reader write ins that they've seen the Tassimo T20 Hot Beverage System in their local Target. We were under the impression the Tassimo T45 model would have a longer shelf life, but it looks like the Tassmio T20 will now take over the price point at $99. Reader impressions are the quality of the machine is not the same as the Tassimo T20 Hot Beverage System, and the new cup stand is a bit flimsy. We'll have to get a Tassimo T20 ourselves and do a review soon.

TN-577577_NEWTASSIMOT20.jpg

  • Comes in White and Black
  • 1.5 litre tank which should mean that you don't need to refill constantly
  • Water is only heated on demand and the Tassimo T20 Hot Beverage System goes into stand-by mode when not in use.
  • As well as coffee, cappuccino, espresso and macchiato drinks from Carte Noir, Kenco, Seattle's Best, and Starbucks the Tassimo Tassimo T20 Hot Beverage System can also make Milka hot chocolate, Starbucks House Blend and Twinings English Breakfast Tea.
  • The main parts of the T20 can be taken apart and put in the dishwasher.
  • There is a compartment for the quick-start manual and cable storage.

More reading: Tassimo has two brewers from Bosch. Check out our reviews of the Tassimo Bosch Brewers:

Review: Cuisinart SS700 Single Serve Coffee K-Cup Brewing System

Review Single Serve Coffee

CUSSS700_review.jpg

The Cuisinart SS700 Single Serve Coffee Brewing System is the first Cuisinart coffee brewer to use K-Cups for making tea, hot chocolate, and of course coffee. The Cuisinart SS700 Single Serve Coffee Brewing System features a very large 80 oz water reservoir, iced and regular coffee brewing settings, along with storage of a My K-Cup resusable coffee filter. It also features a very fresh yet angular Cuisinart industrial design, along with a very easy to read blue LCD display. We've been looking forward to more options in K-Cup brewers, and it's really nice to have a brewer from a major brand like Cuisinart.

Update: The Cuisinart Keurig Single-Cup Brewer SS-700 and SS-780 is available direct at Green Mountain Coffee and is also under the model number SS-780. The SS-780 will come with a selection of K-Cups but the brewer is the same.

If you want to compare exhaustively the features of other Keurig Brewers we suggest reading the following Single Serve Coffee reviews, however we'll do our best to cover all the differences and innovations we find in this review as well.


SDC11207.jpg
The SS700 has an 80 oz water reservoir. Yes - we said 80.

There is also a ton of info and reviews in our Reviews, Keurig & K-Cups, Keurig Reviews, and K-Cup reviews categories of entries. That's just the prep - now on with the review.

Cuisinart SS700 Single Serve K-Cup Brewer First Impressions

SDC11216.jpg

We've been using the Cuisinart SS700 Single Serve K-Cup Brewer over the past week, and we thought we'd share some unboxing pictures and of course our first impressions.

  • The Reservoir is huge - almost a 1/3 larger than the standard B70 Keurig water reservoir
  • The My K-Cup storage on the side is novel - but we are missing the coffee scoop spoon that comes with the Breville - we like not having to find a scoop to add the coffee
  • The controls are nice and the display icons are a bit clearer - showing the ounces in the silhouette of the cup icon
  • It's very quiet so that's nice the Quiet Brew technology is throughout all the Keurig models now
  • The metal outer coating wipes up easily and is very solid - but it also feels really industrial

You get the brewer, sample K-Cups, charcoal filter, and instructions.

More impressions in our full review next week where we answer your questions as well. You can sound off in the comments or add to our Cuisinart Questions thread in the Single Serve Coffee Forums. Also you can tweet us a questions or two, and send us questions on our Facebook page. Whatever the method, we'll try and get these questions answered within the context of the review.

Keurig B150 and B155 Touch Screen User Interface Single Serve Coffee Brewers

Keurig B155.jpeg

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.

The B155 is available through a Keurig Authorized Distributor, or online at www.keurig.com for $249.95. Make sure to check them out on Facebook at www.facebook.com/keurig to enter their Photo Contest to win a year's supply of K-Cups (through Feb 7.)

You'll need a small to medium business to purchase one, but we like the giant reservoir, and we think the touch screen interface will be a welcome addition to the single serve coffee world. We should have one of the B155's to review soon.

Update: Several readers have written in and it appears you can order one of these regardless of being a small business owner. So if you need the features - you can enjoy the B155 in your home as well.
