I have owned my Keurig for about 2 years. It has operated flawlessly and it makes great coffee. To all the naysayers out there, I can only say that you have no idea as to WTF you are talking about. If you like drip coffee, good for you. If Tassimo is your thing, you are already stuck buying their overpriced Yuppie groomed latte's.
To each his own, I enjoy the coffee that it makes.


Hey--don't rag on the Tassimo! I LOVE my Tassimo lattes! Luckily, I can afford the cost. Still cheaper than Starbucks. I had a Keurig, and hated the coffee from it. I gave it away.

"fresh ground as you use it" seems to win out, even with a kurig on the counter, and even in the drip maker


I wish I had stocked up on those coffee grinders when they were only $20. Now they cost so much, and people really need more than one

I got a Keurig for Christmas. I'm not a big coffee drinker so I was like, "Um...yeah....thanks....".

Well, it turns out I can make tea or hot chocolate in it too. I rather enjoy having my "sleepy time" tea before bed on some nights. Overall, I love the little gadget. I haven't had any problems with it. I use only filtered water from the fridge in it, and flush it out with a 50-50 white vinegar water mix every now and then.

I have one of those reusable K-cups that allow you to put your own stuff inside. I don't think I'll have to really worry to much about this DRM thing, as I bought over 60 assorted k-cups off of Amazon for under $1 each. There's some good sampler packs out there!

I tried getting into coffee a while back. I probably have more ways to make a cup than one man should. I have a Moka pot, actual espresso machine (I spent way to much on my Breville), a hand-held pump action 1-shot espresso maker, french press...

I never use my actual espresso maker because of the fine grind it requires. My $40 one has an "espresso" setting, but even that isn't fine enough. To get the kind of grind needed, I'd have to spend hundreds of dollars.

It does look pretty sitting in my kitchen though:

Not sure how price sensitive you are....but Illy makes a ground espresso that really is good.

I have not found their espresso roast in a whole bean, but I haven't look very hard.

As I said, to each his own. Keurig is good in my books. Tassimo in yours. Not ragging anyone.

If your Mr. Coffee doesn't work because it gets slower and slower brewing, run a couple of cups of vinegar through it about five or six times to remove the mineral build up. That fixes ours. Been using the same machine for 6 to 8 years.

I do hear people claim presses make the best coffee but I have not tried it. Maybe I should.

I consider coffee part of "Science & Technology" because it is indispensable fuel for scientists & engineers.


Coffee is so critical, depending on anything complex is an unriskable failure mode.

What really works, and what stays working:

Melitta manual pour-over coffee pot

You need a kettle and there are plenty of those, and you can make tea and whatever else with it too. The coffee comes out better than almost all consumer coffee machines, because you get the entire bolus of water up to a hot temperature and apply it quickly. And it's easier to clean than anything else.

This is a case where the superior product is the least expensive.

I use to frequent a coffee house that made coffee by the cup using really hot water over fresh ground coffee and a filter. We really good.

Wish I had kept track of how many lines of program code I got to a cup of coffee over the years. Code/coffee ratio.

When I look at the Keurig cups I think of all the plasticizers released out of the plastic by putting hot water thru them.

And the ridiculous price!

The Vue is keurig 's latest model let's you make bigger cups of coffee plus iced beverages and teas. Plus you can customize your bev by strength, size and temp

I thought this was already the case.

Aren't there two sizes (maybe more) of cups that only go with particular machine manufacturer's pods?

Didn't own a Kcup but the vue will go from 8 to 18 ozs. The cups are bigger in size so they must hold a little more coffee to make the larger cups still taste strong. Makes a damm good travel mug size coffee. Perfect for us.

I have a french press and the Vue makes an overall hotter and better cup IMO.

It bugs me that the cups cost so much, that's why we use a Reusable one that still can accomodate K cups when we get good deals on Amazon or surprisingly, the Keurig website itself.
