  The Keurig B78 is a best-selling single-serve pod coffee maker that brews cups in five sizes. The Keurig B78 can accommodate brewing 4 oz. demitasse cups as easily as it can fill a 12 oz. travel mug. It has a 72 oz. water reservoir, so each cup brewed does not require additional trips to the faucet. It also has a backlit screen for programming water temperature and an auto-off.

What People Are Saying:

Consumer Reports did not review the Keurig B78, but did review a previous version, the B70, and gave it relatively high marks as a pod coffee maker. Consumer Reports rated size consistency and repeat speed as excellent; convenience, brewing range and temperature consistency earned very good ratings. The biggest drawback noted by Consumer Reports was the additional space needed above the machine to allow for loading coffee pods. Consumers who purchased the model also gave it relatively high marks. On Amazon, the model had mostly 4- and 5-star reviews (out of five). A few customers reported receiving units that failed quickly, but noted Keurig offers good customer service.
