I'm having trouble trying to decide between the Breville BDC550XL The YouBrew Glass Drip Coffee Maker and the KRUPS KM9008 Cup On Request. I've tried the pod coffee makers before, but it's gets to be so expensive.

Anyone have good experience with either? Which is the better choice?

If you still have one of the pod ones you can just buy a reusable pod and fill it with your regular coffee.

M. Schmidt,

I gifted a family member with the Hamilton Beach Single Serve Scoop Coffee Maker. She is very happy with it as you do not need to use a pod, can use almost any coffee, and you don´t have to worry about recycling the pods.

I myself have a Nespresso CitiZ D110 Espresso Maker, Black and I am very happy with it and I don´t mind the pods, though I admit it would be easier and more economic to be able to use any sort of coffee.

Buy a Keurig!!! We bought one at the beginning of January and recently purchased the K-Cup filter which we use to put our favorite dry coffee in; only fill the filter about 2/3 full of your favorite coffee to avoid any problems. Works beautifully! Just purchased a second Keurig (Special Edition series), at Costco, for our store. It came with the K-Cup filter and a box of K-Cup coffees. Love, Love, Love them!!

I love my aeropress: Aeropress Coffee and Espresso Maker

If you're willing to spend the money, go for one of the Saeco Superautomatics. You can buy a certified factory refurb for as little as $250: Saeco Vienna Plus Superautomatic Espresso Machine - Silver - Certified Refurbished . I've had good experiences with this vendor, Seattle Coffee Gear.

They're great machines. I got about 12 yrs service out of my first one and have had no problems after 3 yrs use with my second.

I agree. For a single cup, the Aeropress is great.

I hope someone can help me with finding the correct paper filters to use with my Keurig, I have the Keurig replacement cup and mesh filter. I've tried using my coffee with the replacement but I have the brown gunk in my coffee cup, all it needs is a paper filter. Right now, I'm cutting my regular coffee filters to fit, but that is very time consuming and messy. Please help me. Thanks.

It all depends on what kind of coffee you want to drink. If you are set on using a coffee machine that uses pods AND want a large selection i suggest a Cuisinart SS-700 or a Keurig since they both use K-cups. If selection is not your biggest issue then i highly recommend the Nescafe KP210050 Dolce Gusto (this is the one i use in my office). The coffee it makes is very high quality and made under very high pressures which makes a nice frothy coffee! If you want some good information on single cup pod style coffee makers i found a couple good reviews that have a lot of good information. Good luck!

If you like the keurig, then you should go for the b70 brewing system. Its really the best one out there. Great links buddy, really informative.

I purchased the least expensive (Hamilton Beach Coffeemaker - around $15.00) from Amazon. I have used this coffeemaker for nearly one year and am delightfully satisfied. I did buy the $40.00 pod maker as I like to make my own pods. Also, I've found that I use far less coffee (which increasingly gets more expensive) than I did with my 10-cup coffeemaker.

B. Geppert says:
Be careful with the Breville... I've owned THREE since they came out hoping that Breville would fix the problems with it. I realize that common sense dictates that it's Breville so it must be high quality, but you'd be wrong :(.

Check out the reviews here on Amazon as well as on BedBathandBeyond. Sorry to be the barer of bad news...

I agree with B. Geppert sentiment towards the Breville. I did not have a good experience with one i bought for my office. How ever i bought a Cuisinart SS-700 for my home and it has been working great.

Don't bother with the paper filters. Walgreens sells a package of 4 plastic inserts that you can fill and empty without taking apart the whole device.
If you can't find them in Walgreen's then Bed Bath And Beyod has them as we'll but thy are much more expensive.

I like the french press. You put the coffee in the bottom, boil the water, add, let sit a few, press, and it's fabulous, low tech, no filters and stuff to mess with. It also works when the power goes out if you have a camp stove or grill to heat the water on, as we found after 6 days of no power after Isaac last year.

Anyone having problems with their Kuerig Single cup? Mine is less than a year old and it will not pump the water.

I watched mine carefully, also, so I don't think that is the cause.

I understand that Keurig is good at replacing them for free~~~They make their bucks off the K-cups. Same with printers, the big bucks are made on the ink.

Can't locate my paperwork on it; so I really do not know if it is under warranty anymore or not. I will take your advice and call them. Can't hurt to try. Thanks.
