It came with a free packet of sample Kcups. In that packet there was a mix of products. If you're a Starbucks flavor lover as I am you'll be disappointed by the Starbucks Kcups--not the same signature Starbucks flavor I enjoy; it was just "coffee" flavor, no Starbucks taste to it.
Then I tried the free sample "Donut Shop" coffee Kcup. BLEAAAGHHH!!!! *@&%!!! I was in the US Army and so I was VERY used to really bad tasting coffee, and this is no fault of Keurig (I hope), but this "Donut Shop" coffee is so bad it takes Army coffee and adds Three Days Old to it. Oh, I had to go out to my garage and lick my car's tires to get the taste out of my mouth. If donut shop coffee tastes this bad I'm surprised cops go to donut shops.
I had decided early on that I wasn't going to pay for the Keurig Kcups due to their price per cup adding up to a college tuition over the year, so I'd already purchase refillable Kcups and Kcarafe cups (or whatever they're called). But I thought I'd test the freebies given with the machine. Yuck.
I may be wrong on this but I feel that like printer companies don't really make their money on printer sales but instead profit from ink cartridge refills--I believe Keurig was designed on that business model. And so they make their profit on Kcups of dried up, old pre-ground coffee that's been sitting in boxes God knows how long, that can never compare to coffee you make from fresh ground beans. However, if you're one of those "It's just coffee" kind of people you won't care about the lackluster flavor of off the shelf Kcup coffee anyway.
That aside, the machine works well, it is not a "Cup of Coffee In a Minute," as advertised and promoted. You're going to spend the same amount of time taking the small (coffee pot sized) water reservoir off the machine,filling it with water,returning it to the machine, pushing buttons, waiting for pre-heating, lifting the arm up, adding the Kcup, lowering the arm, pushing the Strong button, selecting the cup size, and the waiting for it to drip into the cup. Just letting you know--there is no real time savings here at all.
I'd never seen one of these machines before, so from the photos I thought the water reservoir would last at least two days, or two coffee pot sizes. Nope.
So in the end I'm happy with the coffee maker and the coffee I grind and put into my refillable Kcups.
I'll admit I'm disappointed with the overall feel of this product for the $ 150 price. It's a big semi-cheap, good-looking plastic robot on my counter that takes up WAY more space than my coffee maker did. When you lift the lid off of the water reservoir you feel the cheapness of this product, and when you remove and replace the water reservoir you must handle it carefully as you see the two small, cheap plastic tabs are designed to help them keep selling replacement water reservoirs--I'm not kidding. The care I feel I must use with these two tabs, when removing and replacing the water reservoir is a real disappointment.
My end benefit is that I guess I'm saving money by only brewing exactly what I need by making my wife and I each one cup of coffee as needed.
As soon as one of those damn cheap water reservoir tabs breaks though...
I've attached photos of the machine and the refillable Kcups I use, as well as the message you get when you try to use a refillable Kcup without orange stickers on it to trick the Keurig machine into using them.
My Disclaimer: Beofre anyone starts coming at me or questioning my choice to let my children operate.. please understand......
Always make sure your kids & any other grownup child, is aware of and understands, proper safety and handeling of any heating elements & hot liquids. There Is always the potential risk of injury, when using the Keurig and everything else this world of convinces has to offer.
It's a fairly large brewer, which is good and bad. I like the large water reservoir, but it can take up a lot of space on the counter. Much more than, say, a small Nespresso unit. Still, it's not an unattractive eyesore, just be prepared to give up a few feet of counter space. Other than that, it's easy to fill and use, and pretty much anyone can figure it out in just a few seconds.
Some of the brew settings are customizable to help you get the taste you like out of your coffee. The "strong" option pulses water through the K-cup, letting hot water stay in contact with the beans for a longer time. You can also adjust brew temperature somewhat, and this also has an effect on taste. Compared to some earlier models, I like that you can set the default brew size and strength - some of the older ones required you to choose every time you brewed a cup...the K550 is better - set once to your favorite settings and it stays there till you change it.
As for coffee selections, when this unit first came out where there were issues with older K-cups, but now that time has passed, this isn't an issue anymore. I'm not sure it's easy to make your own K-cups though...for me, I'm not interested in using my own beans in this machine: if I'm making my own beans, I'm using my espresso machine or some other device - they aren't going in the Keurig.
Only small thing I don't like is that the machine isn't all that easy to clean and descale. It tells you when it's time, but it's not a simple process - I usually spend half an hour. If you happen to live in a place with hard water, you'll be doing more of this, and if you don't, eventually the machine will clog and refuse to brew...if you can afford it, bottled water or water out of a reverse osmosis purifier will keep the machine much cleaner over time.
Otherwise, this is about as good as it gets in a K-cup machine - definitely recommended if you want an efficient way to make a cup of coffee.
