Touch Beverages sent me a T526B single serve coffee maker to review this is different than the other single serve coffee makers as this one offers you freedom of choice making them compatible with any portion pack or K-Cups. It warms up faster you can begin brewing under 20 seconds after you turn it on. Hotter cup of coffee Touch reaches the ideal temperature of 195-205 degrees. You can make a bolder cup of coffee as the hot water has more contact with the coffee grounds for optimal coffee extraction.
Energy Efficient Touch heats up just enough water for the selected cup size as opposed to the entire tank of water and the machine turns off after using making it more energy efficient than others on the market. The Touch Beverage machine also included a carafe, refill jumbo cup and a variety of L.A. Coffee.
My Opinion: I found this easy to set up and use and when I turned on the button to use I did find it was very quick and the water did come out very hot. I like the option of choosing a size to brew which are 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18 oz. or Carafe. I enjoyed the L.A. Coffee varieties which a little bigger than the normal K-Cup size but just as good if not better. I did find when I brewed one cup and did not set it on the upper rack for brewing it did splatter on the lower side of the stand next to the mug. The single serve cups makes a weak cup of coffee on the 16 setting so use any of the setting lower.
Let me tell you about them they are named after California Landmarks and XBold you can try Pacific Sunrise which is lightly roasted with a sweet and soothing flavor. Beverly Hills is a rich and decadent medium roast and Sunset Strip is packed with a generous portion of French Roast Arabica beans for an intense and extra-bold brew.
