Breville BKC700XL Coffee Brewer Review
This is a solid, customizable Keurig coffee brewer, but $250 may be too much for some.
Using a refractometer to calculate the total dissolved solids (TDS) of each cup, we determined the Breville BKC700XL's brew strength. We put the brewer through two brewing trials - the strongest K-Cup that came in the box in a small cup and the weakest in a large cup. For the BKC700XL, we used the Breakfast Blend K-Cup for the large cup and Dark Magic for the small cup.
The Breville BKC700XL struggled in our large cup test with just 0.48% TDS, but was good in our small cup test with a 1.12%. While the small cup percentage is certainly a competitive number, customers spending $250 on a brewer may be looking for stronger brews. More on how we test the brewing process.
Time to Brew
The Breville BKC700XL is right in the middle of the pack when it comes to brew time. It took 36 seconds to brew a small cup and 1:08 to brew a large cup.
A great aspect of the Breville BKC700XL is that customers can choose from a stronger, small cup (5.25 ounce serving), small mug (7.25 ounce serving), a large mug (9.25 ounce serving), a travel mug (11.25 ounce serving), or iced beverage setting (3.25 ounce serving). Many pod brewers don't give you these types of options.
