Breville BKC700XL Coffee Brewer Review
This is a solid, customizable Keurig coffee brewer, but $250 may be too much for some.
Depending on how much you want to customize your coffee, there may be only a few steps in brewing. For some specific cups, there may be a longer list of required steps.
You need to prime your Breville BKC700XL by holding down the two arrow buttons and letting the water run through the machine. After that, make sure the water reservoir is refilled.
Next, open the brewing chamber by lifting the metallic arm and place the K-Cup inside the tray.
After closing the brewing chamber, you can select your brew size and temperature via the menu on the LCD screen on the right.
Next, press the brew button and your coffee should start brewing.
Cleaning & Maintenance
Users should hand wash the brewer itself and the My K-Cup feature (use needle attached to unplug clogs). The Brewer should be descaled every 3-6 months to ensure optimal performance. Keep an eye on it for calcium deposits, though.
A great feature on the Breville BKC700XL is the My K-Cup filter and measuring spoon, which both reside in the compartment at the top right of the machine. The filter allows you to use your own grains when brewing coffee. You can use this filter if the K-Cups aren’t quite strong enough for you or if you prefer another brand. Breville says that one level scoop equals two tablespoons and works well with the 7.25 ounce serving for a mild brew and 5.25 ounce setting for a strong brew.
