@Sassygrn:  I’m on my second one. The first one lasted a little over a year And went kaput. Though I never used filtered water like they suggest.  I really love it!  I’m the only coffee drinker in the house And I love the fact that I can get a fresh cup of coffee/tea/hot chocolate within seconds. 

I recommend you buy a brita pitcher to filter your water with and use that to fill your keurig with.

I love mine!  I’ve had it for about 4 or 5 years.  The k-cups can seem a bit pricey, but it works for me because I’m the only coffee drinker in the house, so I never liked brewing a pot for just myself.   Spending a bit for the k-cups is still cheaper for me than stopping at a coffee shop in the morning.

@Sassygrn:  My parents have used Keurigs for what seems like eons but really is just about 5 years or so. They’ve replaced theirs at least twice, maybe 3 times. We have hard water and they don’t filter it at all before brewing. We just brew a pot because we’re too cheap to buy new machines that often. We have had our coffee pot for 7 years and it’s going strong.

@Sassygrn:  I think the key is to use filtered water. We just bought our second one a few months ago and bought a service plan from the store so if it breaks they either fix it or replace it:) I say go for it you’ll love it!

I love mine. Turns out you can place a regular ol’ tea bag in the holder and still get a perfect cup of tea! Found that out one day when I craved tea but didn’t have any tea K cups. I also like that you can get a reuseable K cup in case you want to buy a big bag of coffee. I highly recommend getting a Keurig. 🙂

@Sassygrn:  My parents are thinking about buying a second one.  We bought one for my Dad 2 years ago for Christmas.  They use it everyday, several times a day.  And my dad said yesterday “Well, they’re just so cheap, its not worth fixing.  We might as well just buy a new one.”  They have the elite, I got the elite for Christmas from FI (I had a Tassimo that was on its last legs.)  If you watch the sales you can easily get the Elite model for $80.  Theirs is starting to act up.  

It’s well worth it around here.  But we’re a family of coffee drinkers.  I rarely stop at Tims now.  (I never stop at Starbucks.) We also have the commercial version at work.  So I keep k cups in my work bag.  

I think its totally worth it.  I wouldn’t brew a pot for just my morning coffee. I’d stop on the way in instead. But then, I’ve had a single serve brewer for ages now.  

Re: the filtered water – you can buy filters for the Keurig.  It’ll help filter the water for you. And I descale it with vinegar every month.

My parents have had theirs for 4 years now without any problems. They use filtered water and keep it clean. We have thought about getting a Kurig, but decided not to. We decided against it because the K-cups are too expensive and our coffee maker has a ‘one cup’ side dispenser for quick cups of coffee. Although with the Kurig, it would be nice to have a variety of flavors to choose from without having to buy big containers of them.

I love mine, but at work we have the deluxe one and I would get that instead. You don’t have to buy K cups. You can get a plastic filter thing and put loose coffee in like a regular coffee maker. Mine is 2 years old and has never had an issue. I do use filtered water though…

We use ours all of the time. We got the little fillable cups, and just buy loose grounds and use those, rather than spending the money on the pre-made cups. I don’t actually drink coffee, but I rinse it out and use it to make tea and hot chocolate.

@PonytailKim:  I almost did the tea bag thing.. Until i remembered i could just hit the button and get my 8 oz of hot water and just stick the bag in my cup as intended! Lol

 

I looove my Keurig! Like many others, i am the sole coffee drinker in the house so it just made sense to buy one!

@MrsHarness625:  Definitely! That’s a great idea! I just don’t really prefer my tea to steep for too long, so putting it in the Keurig made it to my liking. =)
