Describing the Brewing Machine
This particular machine is specifically known as model SS-700 or SS700C. And it’s available both from the Keurig and Cuisinart online stores. It’s a single serve coffee maker which combines the best features of a Keurig and a Cuisinart coffee machine. This machine is fully automated and programmable. Check the water reservoir, put your desired coffee in the brewer, and press the button for it to deliver your coffee in just under a minute.
Among the unique and noticeable features of the Cuisinart Keurig coffee maker include;
the large water reservoir on its left side
an attractive blue-lit LCD display
5 coffee volume options
quiet brewing operation
energy savings mode
the very popular K-Cup system.
The K-Cup System
The K-Cup system is the brewing technique invented and is a trademark of Keurig. This system lets you prepare coffee instantly even if you don’t have a basic knowledge in brewing, plus, you can choose from hundreds of different coffee flavors and blends. With this system, you can buy the ready-to-brew K-cups which are available in different flavors. Aside from coffee, there are also tea, chocolate, and other variants.
Instead of you manually pouring or scooping the grinded coffee or coffee powder, you can just place the K-Cup on the coffee holder and the Cuisinart Keurig machine will just puncture the K-Cup on its lid and bottom part.
The puncture at the cup’s lid will serve as an opening for the pressured hot water while the hole created at the bottom lets the brewed coffee drip downwards. When using the K-cup system, the coffee filter is also no longer needed since each K-cup sold is already fitted with a built-in and disposable coffee filter.
The Pros and Cons
According to Cuisinart Keurig coffee maker reviews, the pros of using these machines are the following:
