Functionality and Design
Keurig is known for it’s simplicity and user-friendliness, the Special Edition is no different. The black body is highlighted with chrome and a stylish, bright blue backlit LCD display that tells you what’s going on and when during the brewing cycle. On the right top of the machine is the control panel; on the left is the removable 48 oz water container.
The Keurig B60 Special Edition brews your favorite coffee, tea or cocoa in under one minute, ideal for those of us who love our favorite beverages but don’t always have the time to make them! This little machine is also programmable, allowing you to save your favorite settings for the next time.
One of the coolest features of the Special Edition is the removable drip tray. Since this is a single-cup machine, it allows you to choose between 6-, 8- or 10-oz cup settings for your favorite drink. The removable drip tray allows you to put a taller travel mug under the spigot so you can enjoy your favorite drinks on the go.
The LCD screen is small, but it holds and displays a ton of information for you during the cycle. Under the screen are three cup-size buttons for easy choosing between your favorite cups.
Another little perk is the fact that the machine takes only up to 15 seconds to reheat in between brewing cycles. This is ideal, especially if you have company or live in a multiple coffee-drinker household.
The K-Cup system is probably the most diverse, easy-to-come-by capsule systems available. With availability at your favorite grocery stores, home stores and big-box stores, you’re never to far away from refilling your stash.
The capsules aren’t limited to just coffee, either. Teas and cocoas are also available through the K-Cup system, ideal for families with different tastes — or if you’ve got an eclectic taste in hot beverages. With over 200 varieties and over 25 different brands, you’re sure to find your favorite taste from your favorite manufacturers. Brands include Starbucks, Caribou, Green Mountain, Folgers, Celestial Seasonings, Emeril’s and Bigelow, among others.

What others are saying about the Keurig B60…
“It works not just as a coffee maker, there are also tea K-Cups available and it also can be used to heat water in less than 20 seconds. [...] It is ridiculously easy to use. No paper filters needed. No grinds in the bottom of the cup. No wasting away of drinking coffee in the morning.”
“Finally, I found the easy – no clean up – fast coffee maker that I need for my busy lifestyle. The k-pods are awesome – I use it for coffee and tea, it’s so easy. Just put in the k-pod – push a button and you have your beverage. Great taste – no fuss – no mess or a chance of an exploding pod – a great size water reserve and a cool look. I’ve bought so many coffee makers over the years and I finally found a keeper.”
“If you are on the fence, I don’t believe you’ll be disappointed if you go for it, and I don’t believe you’ll ever own another coffee pot.”
