Default I will not join the K-Cult

My brother and a bunch of my friends all have these Keurig coffee makers. Even my parents have one. They are constantly telling me how awesome they are. Personally, I'm happy with our Cuisinart drip coffee maker and plain old Master Blend. Nothing fancy. I keep telling them that I refuse to join their cult.

Now, my place of employment has switched the older drip coffee makers out for industrial sized Keurig machines with an assortment of flavors. I just gave in and got a cup of their dark roast. I have to admit, it's darn good.

But I still refuse to join the K-cult

At the veterinary ophthalmologist I've been taking Toker and Chulita to, they have for their customers one of those Keurig machines. I think that's what it is. There are a bunch of little individual, plastic things with various coffees and you stick it in this place on top and it punctures the container and then the water drips through for a single cup. It's very good coffee. So, I don't know if it's the coffee or how it's brewed, but it sure is tasty.

Join the dark side Eddie! I never really was much of a coffee drinker, but ever since I discovered the Golden French Toast coffee I was hooked. The apple ciders and hot chocolates are pretty good, AND you don't have to wait for the water in the kettle to heat up.

I won't join either.

Between my husband and I we drink about a pot a day though, not wise economically to switch. Those individual cup things are a bit pricey.

I never likes coffee. Then we got a keurig. It's way too easy to make a cup of coffee now

I make drip coffee from some of the best beans available on the market and then compost it all after we're done drinking the pot. I can't see me going to K cups. The preloaded ones are way too much waste for my tastes and the load yourself ones make me just want a normal f-ing coffee pot.

I just use a regular coffee machine, but buy whole bean coffee that you grind yourself. I don't care for any of the flavored coffees. I want my coffee to taste strongly like coffee. lol. I can imagine those individual packets not being cost effective. Coffee is expensive enough as it is.

I love my coffee press! And my grounds go into the garden.

I am surrounded my Keurigs. I love the concept, but I just can***8217;t seem to like the actual coffee it makes. We have a Bunn brewer at home, and it brews super fast. It wasn***8217;t cheap but well worth it.

Coffee presses DO make good coffee, for sure.
