I think that would be really slow. My parents have one at home and when they have a bunch of people over for dinner it is so annoying when they have to brew like 10 cups of coffee individually and it takes 10 minutes. Also, those pods are not cheap so this is going to be a much more expensive option than just getting 3 carafes. I do love the Keurig machine but I don’t think it would be a good plan at a wedding, unless you’re having a very small reception.

I agree with pb and j.  I think it would cost you more than you think especially because those k cups are pricey and the process would be so slow.  Also, the keurig is great but it can be really noisy when it is heating up the water.

I agree with pb & j and Saeliz. Fiance and I own a Keurig and to be honest, its kind of a pain to make coffee for more than just ourselves. We have used it at parties before and I normally end up getting stuck at the coffee maker for like 20 minutes. At times like that, I really wish I had a normal coffee maker. Also, while it is really cool to choose a different type of coffee everyday, we spend ALOT on those k-cups when we actually buy them. We dont drink coffee everyday so a box of 24 can last but it normally costs us about $30+ per box depending on the type. IMO thats alot for coffee. Also, I find that the cheaper brands of k-cups really taste awful so going the generic route wouldn’t be wise. 

Honestly, I think the idea sounds cool but the execution will be a headache for you.

Did you end up using the Kuerig? If so how did that work for you?

I have a Keurig in my office, and one at home as well. I love it! They recently came out with a new Keurig model that has a carafe, so that might be good for your purposes. However, I think that’s a lot of money for coffee. You would definitely get more bang for your buck just by using a traditional coffee brewer. If you’re looking to provide some variety, what about buying a bunch of different flavored coffee creamers?

I can’t see it working for a large group. We use one during family gatherings of 25-30 people, and it’s already hard to get a cup in.
