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.
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.

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.

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.

Unavailable until recently, the Senseo’s Supreme Single-Serve gourmet coffeemaker boasts an array of improvements designed to enable the consumer to further personalize their coffee experience at home. We really liked the Senseo SL7832/55 Single Serve Supreme Coffee Machine, and it's nice to see this more upscale model of the Senseo available again. The Senseo Supreme coffeemaker enables consumers to select their desired coffee size by using an interactive LCD display.
Unlike the original Senseo coffeemaker that brewed a maximum of 8 ounces, the Supreme can brew up to 10 ounces. The Supreme model also comes with an adjustable spout, which can raise and lower to accommodate different size mugs. You'll also be taking less trips to refill the reservoir because the Senseo Supreme features a 33% larger water reservoir - which means you can now generates four 8-ounce cups from a full tank. The Senseo Supreme is only available in chrome silver.

Nespresso has continued to expand it's single serve espresso and coffee offerings this year with the CitiZ line, and we're kind enough to send us along a test unit to review here at Single Serve Coffee. CitiZ Nespresso machines are sleek and have modern colors along with exceptional design lines that enhance not only your kitchen, but your coffee morning. We reviewed the CitiZ stand alone machine earlier this year, and we we're impressed. How much does the milk frother add to the equation and footprint?
We think if you're going to be using the Aeroccino a ton for making lattes and cappuccinos, having it integrated with the machine gives you a larger footprint, but the aesthetic is killer. It was hard to let this one go off the test kitchen counter, and the powder coated black frother blends nicely into the landscape of the coffee base.

The Newco Coffee Pod Brewer is for commercial use,
but don't you just want one?
Newco's $850 Newco Coffee Pod Brewer isn't really for home use but it does have a ton of interesting features that might make you shell out big bucks just to have one at home. Also at 1750 watts of raw coffee pod brewing power, you'd better have this on it's own circuit and we think a big one. You can even use it as a hot water source for soups, and perhaps it even has warp drive.
One feature we really like that it has is the SMART brewer technology. The SMART CUP brewing system has been designed to allow for different brew settings for each kind of coffee or tea. Since all products are brewed the same way, the brew time greatly affects the taste of the drink. The shorter the brew time, the milder the beverage. you have the choice once you select the type of POD to select the strength. The individual POD holder, with its sensor technology, alerts the brewer to use the correct brew recipe for your beverage.
