Keurig (spelling?) Platinum!  hands down the best EVER!  It makes coffee, tea, iced tea, iced coffee, hot chocolate.  It averages out to $.50 or $1 per coffee (depending on how much you like to drink or how strong you like it).

I will second the Keurig!  We drink coffe often (maybe a couple cups a day for each of us), and the machine is so convenient, easy to use, and easy to keep clean.  Also, you can buy tea and hot cocoa for the machine, too, so you can use it for other drinks.  There is a ton of variety of coffees, and you can buy the k-cups just about anywhere (Target, BB&B, Wal-Mart, grocery stores, etc…).  It’s awesome!

I third the Keurig, we bought one with our engagement money and use it all the time. Get the one that makes Iced tea (Platinum?), we use that setting all the time

OMG i was wondering this! Our coffee maker (a Cuisinart) just shat out the other day. It took 45 MIN to make a damn pot this morning.

My SIL has a Keurig. Definitely something to think about–they’re very easy/convenient, but you do have to clean them. I love that I can have flavored coffee and Darling Husband can have non-flavored, though.I always buy beans from a local gourmet shop….still debating whether or not we want to go with the K cup system. It seems like a great option for us, though. I really ony drink one large 12 oz cup every morning.

If you drink Nescafe instant….a good coffee maker will blow you away. Along with good coffee.

Whatever you do, don’t get a Cuisinart. They don’t last. I replaced my expensive grind-and-brew Cuisinart with a $20 Mr. Coffee about two months ago because the $200 machine crapped out after a year and a half of use.

@Kittyachi – eek, we love ours! Now you’re making me nervous. I bought it three years ago (paid about $150 for it) and it works wonderfully. We’re huge coffee drinkers, so it gets used about twice a day.

Wow, Im surpirsed to hear about the crappy Cuisinarts! We have the one that grinds the beans (Hubs works for a coffee trading company and must have freshly ground beans.) We’ve had ours for years and its stil going strong. You do have to clean it everyday though, but hubs is the coffee drinker and he doesn’t mind doing it so that he can have his coffee just the way he wants it 🙂

@lilyfaith – You’re lucky. I looooved mine and then one day at 8 AM the grinder just started making this death rattle noise and that was it. Same thing happened to my parents’ machine. Sorry, didn’t mean to make you nervous!

And the best thing about the Keurig Platinum is that you can buy a seperate filter ($12) where you can fill it up and brew your own coffee (also cheaper than the cups sometimes!)

We love our Keurig too. I am not a coffee/tea drinker but my Darling Husband likes to have a cup every day or so. He likes being able to pick a different kind to try each time. I think it works really well for a cup here or there but I can see how it would get kind of expensive if you like multiple cups daily or you serve coffee while entertaining or something.

I had my shower on Sunday and we registered for the Cuisinart Grind & Brew Coffeemaker with Glass Carafe. It’s brilliant! Easy to use (for dummies like me) easy to clean, and the coffee is delicious. AND you can grind your beans right in it so the coffee comes out about as fresh as it could be! 

We also have a little Nespresso machine that we got when we lived in Japan and it’s great for espresso – works really fast and there are a lot of different coffee pods depending on your taste. We got it about 3 years ago and it’s still in tip top shape.

For those with Keurigs, what’s your favorite brand of coffee? We had one at work but I thought the coffee was really terrible but they seem popular so I’m curious.

A French press makes the best tasting coffee!
