I have water/ice in the door, and it gets run through a filter of some sort. It never tastes bad, and in fact its better tasting than the tap water! I think they've really improved on them since the 80's.

After having that for the first time in my life, I don't think I would want to go back to ice cube trays if I didn't have to.

I used to have one that had a filter, water/ice maker, and an alarm on both doors that would beep if you kept it open too long. Loved that dang fridge! Till my ex ruined it and turned it into a paperweight. I'd love to get another one like it though, very similar.

Yeah mine has a filter as well for the water and ice. I do not think I would want my coffee machine in place of that. We have a Verismo which works for us because we do not drink much coffee. I once tried to get my wife to agree to buying a fridge with a TV in it but, she said it would be a waste of money. This is true but, it would have been cool.

When I was a kid, we only had refrigerators that kept your food cold and didn't do anything fancy like make coffee and mow your lawn, or whatever, and we got by fine.

Also, refrigerators in those days could protect you from a nuclear bomb.
Can this one?

Ummm...Actually...I have a Keurig and bought K-cup sized micro-screen coffee baskets...I just load them up with my fave bulk brand coffee...(keep the coffee in the freezer)...and have my single cup of coffee in the morning...I can also use the baskets for bulk teas and such...

I know what your going to say..."that's one expensive coffee pot"...It certainly was for whoever bought it...it was a Christmas gift...

This way...because I only have one cup per day...it saves me from making a pot and dumping the rest out...we also add the grounds to the compost pile and recycle them...

John Sylvan, the Boston based inventor of the K-cup has reported his regret for inventing his environmentally destructive device.

www.cbc.ca... 43

Reminds me of Oppenheimer's: Now I am become death, the destroyer of worlds.



He'll just have to invent the K-cup Krusher. Then he can say "Now I have become green, the destroyer of K-cups".

I don't know if I would have a Keurig in my fridge, however i do have an individual Keurig and it is heaven sent for me. The k-cups are expensive and waste-full but there is a remedy for that, a filter which allows you to buy your coffee of choice at a much more affordable price in bulk. This is what I do. Gota have my coffee in the AM and with this filter it is still very convenient and quick.

I love my Kreurig! But I don't buy those crappy K-cups. I grind my own coffee and use a K-cup type filter. Now granted, Kreurig machines in my experience only last maybe three years as the pumps go belly up. But the money I save on brewing one cup at a time pays itself off as I don't waste coffee as it is getting expensive.

There are hacks for the 2.0 version but I haven't seen a stand alone filter yet for grinding your own. Because of this, when my Kreurig dies, I will not be getting another. Screw them!

I am sure they have improved since the '80's, just I am rather squeamish and would imagine bacteria lurking in the unchecked pipes somewhere.

We only drink spring /mineral water and I wouldn't want it filtered as many of the minerals are healthy.

You can't use "filtered water" treatment in this area. Back when the fridges first came out that made ice trays, a lot of local folks ruined their fridge. It only takes about a year for the water to do its job of destroying the system.

We don't even brush our teeth with the tap water. All the water filter will do it make it taste like filtered crap. R/O water is a huge deal, with water refills being sold in just about every store for 20 cents a gallon.

$3300 for a fridge? It would have to replace a lot more appliances than just my coffee pot!

I have a Keurig 2.0 (a gift). My original set of K-cups that came with it are now in my mini-greenhouse with plants in them. I've got the Solo-Fill reusable cup with one of the lids from a 2.0 version K-cup on top that allows me to bypass the K-cup restrictions. But if it hadn't been a gift I'd still be using an old campstyle coffee pot on the stove.

I'd spend $3,300 for a fridge with a built in Budweiser maker!

Coffee maker fridge, not so much!

The problem with that: you get weak coffee.

I can take any one of the half dozen or so k-cup refill designs that I have bought, filled with Starbucks French Roast or Illy Dark Roast, and brew it head to head against the store brand (HEB Cafe Ole) french roast. The prepacked, store brand is so much better that i find it hard to describe. its the difference between black and white analog, and HD.

One is a rich, bold cup of coffee. The other is a thin, watered down version of what coffee should be.

If anyone can direct me to a kcup refill that doesn't brew colored water with a faint coffee taste, i would love to grind my own coffee again.

ETA: HEB Cafe Ole prices at $6.84 for a 12 ct box. That is just over 50 cents per cup. Not sure if volume gets a discount, i just buy a few boxes a week.

Although i don't own one, i hear that french presses are the way to go for coffee brewing.

Also, I don't mind drinking day old coffee, so making a full pot makes sense for me.

Ya have to pack it in. I have always liked my jet fuel.

I use the regular old "Eight O'Clock" french roast and most cups are great. Grind it just short of fine as well. I find that works for me.

I buy a two pound bag of whole beans for roughly $15.00. That alone makes a hell of a lot more than twelve cups.

my wife loves Eight OClock coffee. She drinks the "Original", a moderate roasted arabica. It tastes terrible to me. But then, she hates my coffee. We have a love/hate relationship. LOL
