That’s a good question. I put one on the registry, and I have no idea, lol.

@guitargirl:I hope it is because I just found out I’m getting one for Christmas from my mom! She has one and whenever I go to visit I have a cup of coffee. It’s sooo easy and fast. My mom only has tea and my dad only coffee. They also have hot chocolate and iced coffee, regular and decaf. I think there’s something for everyone, actually.

We use it mostly for coffee and hot tea.  The hot chocolate isn’t very good, but that’s mostly because I am used to making it with milk.  We use ours daily though!

It is if you only make a small amount of coffee each day and if you can find the K cups for a reasonable price.

Darling Husband was so against it when we received one for a gift. Didn’t understand why we’d use one when we have a great coffee maker. But we use it every single day! And he can make what he likes, I get what I like.

I love my Keurig! I love the apple cider and tea the best!

@BoiledPNut: Agreed.  The K Cups can be expensive.  They are always cheaper online, through Keurig’s website, or Amazon.  Every once in a while I will find them on sale at Macy’s or Target though.

You could always buy the K Cup filter and fill it yourself too.  We do that on occasion.

I never thought I would trade in my coffee maker but I my step-mom got me one, and I’m hooked. I don’t buy the hot chocolate, or tea k cups though. Just buy hot chocolate packets, or tea bags and just make hot water. It’s way cheaper, and still super convenient.

They are really making a big push for Christmas, aren’t they?  I see them everywhere! 

I think they’re great for households where people have different drink preferences.  I haven’t had coffee brewed in them myself, but I love the results from my Capresso machine and am happy with it (it has a “small batch” setting that adjusts the brewing cycle for the couple cups I drink).

We have one at work and I am completely hooked!!! I love that thing! Oh and I don’t drink coffee. They have a large variety of black and herbal teas that I drink and then I occassionally have a cafe mocha or something. Love it!

Q: “is the keurig coffee maker really that great?”

A: YES.

Kidding aside, we LOVE ours. We were against it at first too but broke down and got one anyhow with the mindset of “we can return it if we don’t like it”. Obvoiusly that never happened. We love that you can make whatever you want, and it’s especially good for company when each guest wants something different.

Or for days when I want a girly flavored decaf drink and my Darling Husband wants hot steaming road tar with no sugar.

I have a Tassimo (similar, but less expensive with less coffee/cup options) and I wouldn’t trade it for the world.  I keep it at my shop and literally think about what coffee I’m going to make as I drive into work.

Yeah, it’s that bad.
