My wife got a Keurig machine for Christmas and I have been working my way through the sampler pack, looking for something that tastes better than the coffee my drip maker produces. This is the first one I've found that is acceptable. I have tried most of the Green Mountain blends (dirty water) as well as a Dunkin Doughnuts K-cup and have been disappointed by every one so far. This is to only one I'd pick a second time. I want to try a Starbuck's (have high hopes there) but haven't had the chance. In general, I am disappointed in the quality of Keurig produced coffee. My disappointment falls into 3 areas:
1) Taste - most are no more than dirty water. The newmans extra bold is the best so far
2) Cost - at around $.67 a cup, it's no bargain. I guess you pay for ease of use and speed
3) Quantity - I like a large cup of coffee. The Keurig largest setting is about 1/2 my cup. My cup is about a Keurig large + small to fill it. If I try that using single k-cup... too watery. If I run two K-cups, too expensive. Keurig needs to produce a deeper K-cup that holds more coffee so that you can run it once large and a second time small and end up with a large cup of great coffee. I bought their reusable K-cup thinking I could get a better taste but its worse, dont waste you money on that
