    So I went to Walmart yesterday and discovered they have little "try me" 3 packs of various beverages. I got their version of Chai Latte and *gasp* Cafe Caramel coffee, which I am trying now. I am still not a fan of coffee but this isn't bad except for the aftertaste. Kind of a burnt charcoal taste so I am not sure if it it the coffee itself or something else.

    I use the one at work to make cup o noodles. Works great unless you forget to take out the previous users k cup.

    Boat anchor.

    I did not like the coffee it made. Could always taste the plastic in the k-cup.

    I always thought the coffee was weak - it took two K-cups to make a full real cup of coffee. But it was convenient so I kept it around until it died and I could replace it with something that makes me much happier.

When my last Keurig died the light finally came on.

    I got the Cafe Vanilla from Cafe Escapes and it is a winner! No burnt aftertaste like the other.

    I will become a coffee drinker yet.

    It is. I supplement the coffee with a spoonful of good instant. Works fine.

    OR

    I use my own fill it yourself cups. Amazing how more robust it is (but a little messy). They're cheap, so I will fill a dozen, and then use them one at a time.

    Trying to figure out how to get a good cup of coffee out of a Keurig was so annoying that it's just easier to use something else to brew coffee. I have a Bodum pot (they sell them at Target) that I take on the road with us, along with the electric kettle. I'm a coffee addict and love flavored coffees (my current is a maple roast that I got at Speeder and Earl's in Burlington), and many of the places we go have a local roastery, so I can get it fresh ground. If not, I'm good with Starbucks cinnamon.

    I've used the Keurig reusable cup with BRCC's CAF blend.

    It's good and strong and kick-starts the morning.

    Had a roomie who swore by those things, and I used to use them for a while. Just got tired of eventually dealing with grounds in my cup.

    Keurig is *convenient*. I can set it up in seconds and walk away, do something else and when I'm back, a cup without any mess to clean up or French press to clean out.
    I never need to wash out the container, and I don't have a metal sieve to scrub. The "touch of instant" is good enough, especially since I buy hyper cheap k-cups at Aldi's.
    Since I rarely drink more than two cups a day anymore, it suits me perfectly, and sure beats what I used to do - make a pot and drink day old coffee for a while.

    If I buy coffee, Dunkin' or Wawa is good enough for me. I regret the days when I spent 5 bucks or more for a cup at Starbucks, because I had a crush on the redhead working there.
