Which Keurig Single Cup Brewer Should You Choose?

Keurig single cup brewers are becoming increasingly popular.

Why? Because they allow you to brew single cups of gourmet coffee, one at a time...without having to spend time grinding beans or dealing with messy filters.

Instead of buying whole or ground beans and using your old drip brewer, the Keurig brewers use K-Cups. These are sealed cups which contain both a measured amount of ground coffee and a filter.

You just pop the K-Cup into your Keurig brewer and press one button.

It's that easy.

But which of the Keurig brewers should you choose?

Keurig offers three main brewers right now, the B40, the B60 and the B70.

The Keurig B40 is the base, no-nonsense model. No bells and whistles, and it offers just one brew size for a regular mug of coffee.

If you want to get a Keurig brewer for under $100, or want to buy a second brewer for your office or home office, this may be the right model for you.

The Keurig B60 is their most popular model and offers a few extra features. It offers three different brew sizes and an adjustable brew temperature.

Their latest model is the Keurig B70, which has all the features of the B60, plus a larger water reservoir and one extra brew size - for travel mugs.

One thing to keep in mind when it comes to the brew sizes is that regardless of the size you select, the K-Cup and the amount of coffee inside it remains the same.

In other words, choosing the largest size will give you a slightly weaker cup of coffee.

Which brewer should you choose?

We have a Keurig B60, and we are happy with our choice. We appreciate the three brew sizes, and don't find ourselves hankering after the one additional size that comes with the B70.
