Touch Brewer T526S Overview
Construction and Design
The Touch Coffee Maker-T526S may look a little bit big (12.2 x 9.1 x 14.1 inches) and it is of 9.8 pounds weight. I am ok with this as long as it is durable and gives a better taste of coffee. I don’t really want the coffee machine to be transportable or easy to move because I don’t want the kids to think this is a toy and don’t want them to play around.
The Touch T526S Coffee Maker comes with a big water reservoir. It can hold 90 ounces of water. Which means you can make a lot of cups of coffee before refilling it. This Coffee Maker will not heat up the entire water in the reservoir. The amount of water that gets boiled depends on upon our selected cup sizes and thus saves a lot of electricity. This wonderful feature in T526S will not be seen in other K-cup brewers.
As far as looks to go, Touch T526s Coffee Maker is a sleek modern look that fits well in the modern kitchen. Our first impressions were good. We like to say what we see. This can be a focal point in any modern kitchens.
The Touch Brewer T526S system has never compromised with performance. The inside system of the Touch T526s Coffee Maker heats the water within 20 seconds and then mixes with the coffee in the K-cup. The dripping off your coffee with water takes hardly 30 seconds. So you will get a coffee in about a 30 seconds. T526S has reached the ideal temperature between 195-205 degree Fahrenheit. Any drip coffee maker that reaches 195-205 degrees Fahrenheit will have good coffee strength with good flavor in it and gives a good taste of Coffee. Overall this is a great Coffee Maker when you want a smaller cup at 6 ounces, or want to fill an entire carafe for the breakfast table. This is much faster than Keurig B60 brewer.
The Touch Brewer T526s is very easy and simple to use. The way it works is very simple. To get started with, you can fill the water and you do not have to worry about how much water to fill. Just make the tank full and Touch Coffee Maker will take the right amount of water and heats up depending on the brewing selected cup sizes. As I mentioned earlier, this T526S gives you the freedom to afford any type of K-cup you want, This brewer is fully compatible with all portion of packs. You can choose from eight cup sizes starting from 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16,18 and 26 oz. You can also choose your own ground coffee. If you are choosing ground coffee then don’t forget to fill the Refill Jumbo Cup to the rim with your preferred ground coffee and then insert the Refill Jumbo Cup into the brewer. If you want to use the carafe, then remove the red cup holder from inside the machine, as well as the drip tray. The carafe goes underneath then press a carafe button. In this case, the T526S will brew a pot of drip coffee in about three minutes.
