    I used one daily at my in-laws over thanksgiving and I kind of liked how easy it was to use and how clean it was. I'm torn about getting one because of the quality of coffee available, the cost and the packaging waste but if I'm only brewing a cup or two before I leave for work everyday it seems reasonable.
    Anyone using one of these single cup coffee makers regularly?

    I use mine on work days. I found a flavor on Amazon called Jet Fuel. It comes to about 80 cents a cup. On my days off I use the regular coffee maker and have more than one cup.

    • counter space real estate is at a premium, I can only have one coffee maker.

    Convenience is great.
    Quality is horrible.
    Cost is expensive.

    Love the idea. Too bad the coffee (I've tried at least 7-8 different "cups) tastes like shit.

    Coffee selection/quality is pretty poor. Also the construction quality on the unit is questionable.

    the construction quality seemed better than this Krups I have...

    but then again I just saw this for just a little more than the Keurig and I can still use StumpTown beans.

    Everyday. Love it. Fast, Easy, Clean.

    Once you find your bean brew you will be good. I buy my k-cups at Costco. I think it works out to be .47 cents per coffee. In addition, I have the custom brew thingy, so if I ever wish to sip a different bean, I am golden.

    any espresso options for Keurig besides the Jet Fuel?
    We have an Nespresso in the office that makes a good cup.

    Just spend ~$10 for a reusable converter and brew any coffee you like... works perfectly for me... no need to buy any of those overpriced k cups.

    • how is this any different than using a normal machine except you paid a ton more for a feature you don't use?scarabin1/9
      fresh brewed coffee every cup, scarab, not just the first of the potlocustsloth2/9
      also, saving money by not wasting coffee that you don't drink from a small or large potlocustsloth3/9
      because buying individual servings saves money... yeah.albums4/9
      no, but using this filter and buying the same coffee you always do wouldlocustsloth5/9
      why not just make smaller pots?scarabin6/9
      This saves time. No need to measure the water or the coffee. Just fill the cup and hit a buttonlocustsloth7/9
      tru... takes me about 1 minute to brew a single cup... don't need more than that in the morning... works for me perfectly.djurizen8/9

    I have a little single serve one. When I'm too lazy or in a hurry to empty the coffee grinds from my Cusinart Grind & Brew drip machine (I love it) I use this. It's not bad. I buy the coffee cups from Costco in bulk and it's about $0.50/cup.

    get the cheapest espresso maker on the market. Great for brewing one or two cups. Slightly less convenient... wayyyy better quality and not such a terrible waste of packaging as those pre packed coffee things. I have this exact one and it makes great coffee / espresso

    • Agreed, I brew espressos instead of coffee at home.section_014

    what is the difference between this thing and the new Vue system? Are the K-cups going to be phased out, at which point you've wasted your money?

    • K, V, & R are all different systems, no?albums
