I did not care for the Keurig at all. At first I couldn't put my finger on it.....but then I realized it's instant coffee inside the little K-Cups. I found the taste to be quite bitter with a ton of residue left on the bottom of the cup.
I then paid $17.00 for a little adapter that you can fill with your own coffee. That too was a waste of money. If you don't give the coffee out of the can an extra fine grind, the coffee comes out to watery. If you try to add extra coffee to avoid grinding, but still get flavor, you will have an overflow of the grounds right into your cup.
I also missed the refillable water resevoir that my old machine (different brand, begins with T). With the Keurig you are only allowed one size cup.
Besides the horrid coffee taste, I found it to be a bit short to accomodate my travel mug, even if I removed the bottom plate.
In my opinion the only thing Keurig has going for it, is that it has shut down the market on any other brand of single serve coffee makers that use REAL coffee grounds (Senseo and Tassimo are two other brewers that use real grounds in their pods/disks). You can find a whole section of KCups at any store, but try finding a great selection of T-Disks or pods.
The tassimo also lets you add extra water with the push of a button if you prefer a milder coffee taste or just need to fill the cup up. I missed that while owning the Keurig.
I returned this after 10 days and am now back to Tassimo. I am still able to find regular coffee and cappucino at the grocery store. However, I am able to order T-disks right from the website if i want something a bit fancier like tea, lattes, espresso, hot chocolate, etc.
And is it just me or is anyone else a bit upset that after overtaking the market with fake coffee in a cup they now offer a new machine that won't even use the cup??? How much longer before you can't find K-cups and have to buy a VUE machine??
