I'm sure there are quite a bit of Keurig coffee machine owners here, right? I own a Keurig K2 and a Hamilton Beach Keurig type machine. The HB was my 1st one until I could afford a real Keurig. But, my cousin gave me a RED K2 at Christmas. I buy my coffee from EBAY. In fact, I won a bid 2 days ago for some Original Eight O'Clock medium roast pods (72) for $20.25 and FREE shipping. That's only .28 cents per cup of coffee.
I tell you, I sure don't miss my old timer (12) cup Mr. Coffee maker. But, I'm not throwing it away. I never know when I might need it again.

Ever tried the reusable pods? I'm curious if they are worth it

I use the reusable silicone pods. Work great.

I'm not a 1 cup of coffee at at time person. I like to brew a whole pot. I especially like an old percolator but, I use automatic drip most of the time.

Shaw's supermarkets has 80 generic cups for $17.99 this week. Getting wifey a Keurig machine and am happy they aren't 50 cents each (anymore).

The goodwill near me has a used machine for $8. Thinking of picking that up as well to practice the auto-refill hack that involves an aquarium float and ice-machine plumbing.

We still roll with a 12 cup drip machine for breakfast but she likes to "graze" throughout the day.

I like to fill the brewer up with 13 cups of water to get 12.
Put in coffee with a garden shovel.
Slap the lid shut.
Plug it in and flip the switch.

BAAAMMM, Done! Everybody get their coffee at the same time.

When I bid on coffee on EBAY, it's usually 48 pods or more. Sometimes the seller will give you the option to make them an offer. There was a 60 pod of Peets coffee for $41.14. I offered them $20, then $25. After that, I quit. Is it THAT GOOD? I try to keep my cost per cup of coffee at .35 cents or less.

For that price, I will give you my address so you can ship it to me. I'll be glad to pay $8 and shipping costs for it!
J/K, but for that price, you better go buy it for yourself before someone else does.

I assume people get a Keurig for convenience rather than great coffee. I followed a NYT article on great coffee and for my wife got a burr grinder and a coffee maker that heats the water to precise temp and pumps it over the coffee grinds. Even better would be a scale to exactly weigh the coffee but that might be too much at 7 AM to handle.

I am a diet Pepsi guy.

Keurig brews coffee too weak for my liking. I find a regular coffee maker does a better job extracting the flavor.

This is the Keurig my cousin and his wife gave me for Christmas. It has an adjustment to make the coffee very strong. And, oh boy, does it EVER work!
BTW, Wal-Mart sells these for $59.

I still have one, but rarely use it anymore. To me it would never get the coffee hot enough to my liking. I would pre-heat the mug with hot water, but it still wasn't suitable for me. I resorted to putting my coffee in the microwave afterwards. I also used one of those reusable pods, but didn't have good results with it. There would always be fine coffee powder in the last bit of coffee. The only coffee that didn't do that was Luzianne Coffee/Chickory mix. It was my primary coffee anyways. I've since upgraded to an espresso machine and haven't looked back.

LOL! I actually do just that, but I don't have my coffee until about 9 am, so I am more or less awake by then.

If you don't want to bother with a scale, there are grinders that can be programmed to grind a specific amount of beans in one shot.
