Eddie, I agree with you. Also, between the 2 of us, we drink a total of 6-7 cups a day. Do you know how expensive that would be? No way!

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.

AGREE! And we now have another coffee drinker in the house, our 15 year old has discovered he likes coffee too.........won't pay those prices! LOL

Kevin prefers percolated, we have an old metal percolator pot we use on the camp fire, LOL but we have an average drip maker in the kitchen.

I switched to a keurig when my oldest moved out. I like it, but it is pricey. My supermarket used to have their brand of k-cups and it was much cheaper but they stopped selling it all of a sudden. I did buy 3 of those filters you fill yourself and while much cheaper, it is kind of a pain washing them out after each use, but then again I don't have to wash a pot anymore. I like how quick I can get my coffee, but to be honest I drink a lot of coffee daily and if I used a k-cup each time it would be expensive, so I keep k-cups on hand for when I have company or am too lazy but most of the time I use the k-cup filter and just fill them up as I use them.

I have a Tassimo. I LOVE my Tassimo. The coffee brewed from it makes the Keurig-brewed coffee taste like hot water with some weak instant brewed in it.

The problem? Tassimo doesn't like the US, therefore it keeps all the good coffees away from here.
The Hokey Pokey. That's what it's all about.

I LOVE my Keurig. I drink 2 cups of coffee a day, and it is perfect. My husband has a little mini one at work I got him for Christmas. I also use mine for decaf on cold nights, easy to brew a single cup.

Hearts for Keurig.

I like one cup of coffee before work in the morning, and a cup of tea at a time. Keurig just makes more sense for me than a full perc or a full kettle most of the time. Instead of waiting for the water, I can use my K-cup filter and fresh coffee grounds, or my looseleaf tea in an infuser. Keurig = instant hot water.

I also buy K-cups when they're on sale, but you don't require them to use the Keurig.

Never heard of Kuerig... We don't have them here I guess.
I DO, however, love my tassimo. <3 I live alone and usually only drink 1 big cup of coffee in the morning, so it's worth it for me. If I brew filter coffee I end up throwing half away.
I also love all the stuff I can make with my tassimo.

I do have a filter machine for when my SO is here, because he's a huge coffee junkie.

You are the whisper in the wind, and the silence in dark.
You are the autumn rain, and the spring flowers.
You are the joy when I laugh, and the sorrow when I cry.
You are the earth beneath my feet, and the air in the sky
But most of all, you are my heart.
Run free, Beautiful Girl.

I will not have one either eddie. It bothers me that there is all that plastic--you are brewing through it, and then the waste of it as well. I love my BUNN coffee maker--excellent coffee. And Coop--if I had time, I would use my husband's grandmother's old percolator--we still have it. We have used it from time to time--good coffee percolating over the
