Instant coffee lol. I just boil the water and put a scoop in. I am pretty much the only one drinking coffee daily so instant it is. I am too cheap to buy a keurig and the accompanying cups lol

We have a Cuisinart drip maker here. Plain old Maxwell House master blend. Tastes great and it's like 5 bucks for a can of it.

My company has Kuregs at work. I drink it sometimes, but I refuse to join the K-Kup-Kult. My brother has one and I always have to hear about it.

If you get the strong/bold coffee blends (Starbucks French Roast, Cafe Verona, and Sumatra, for instance), they don't taste watered down. I've found that the "light roasts" do taste more watered down with the Keurig.

I can't do Keurig...I can't justify all the waste it produces compared to using a french press.

With that being said, I've been using it for a few weeks now and it's pretty awesome.

My parents have a coffepod thing, Nespresso brand. It's awesome. I don't have a desire for any other kinds of coffee.

I buy the beans, and my boyfriend grinds them and makes coffee using the black thing on the counter.

That was part of the reason I wanted a Keurig. I don't like the roasts that the husband likes and he doesn't like what I like. I do still have a regular coffee pot for when we have guests over. That and my keurig limits how much coffee I drink.
To save money on the cups, I got the reusable cup and just add my own coffee to it.

we have a Bunn coffee maker--absolutely love it--great tasting coffee--always hot and is quick!

I also love coffee from a percolator--we have a glass one that belonged to my husband's grandmother. Always makes nice strong coffee--and yes, the memories associated with it make it even better.

French press here. Tastes a million and one times better than brewed coffee and is so much cheaper and less wasteful than the Keurigs. I fresh-grind my beans each morning and use an electric kettle to heat my water while I'm doing part of my workout, then pour it over to steep while I'm in the shower. Voila, I have a delicious pot of coffee waiting for me when I get out. Also, should the power fail, I still get to have coffee.

We have keurig and tassimo, I prefer the keurig because of the my k cup thing, it's way less wasteful for us because at best we drink 1-2 cups of coffee every 2-5 days.

Tassimo we only have because Tim hortons has them now and one of my employees is a Tim snob lol.
