Great for individual servings
on November 1, 2011
Took awhile to convince my husband this was a good thing. Now he's totally sold and our poor little "regular" coffee maker is feeling neglected. Whatever Keurig you choose, be sure to get the My K-Cup so you can use any type of coffee you wish. This is the thing that sold us on the unit. The K-cups are fairly expensive themselves, but the fact that I can still buy my own gourmet, locally roasted coffee and grind perfectly to use in my Keurig has me tickled pink.
We purchased one which came with an assortment of 60 K-cups as well as the My K-cup unit. Really enjoying trying the different flavors that came with the unit. When using the My K-cup, it took a few tries to get the right grind, but once you find that with your grinder, you're all set. I saw several comments by others that the coffee was very weak, and found the following Amazon reviewer's suggestions very helpful: [...] Perhaps not the greatest solution long term, but until Keurig can fix the design flaw of the My K-cup, it'll do.
I love the following features:
- Auto on and off: the unit is ready when I stumble out of bed and feel my way to the kitchen. I have it set to turn off in an hour.
- Multiple cup sizes
The unit is rather large and takes up some space, but it's totally worth it. We are keeping our "regular" coffee pot for occasions when we just want to make a pot of coffee, but we are really loving our Keurig!
