J’s parents have owned one for years now.  They love it, but the downside of it is that the individual coffee cups cost a good amount of money.

We have one (B70) and love it. The K cups are more expensive than a traditional coffee pot but its still cheaper than starbucks.

I always wondered if they were worth the price.  They seem so expensive.

I LOVE our Keurig!  It’s one of my favorite wedding gifts.  What I love is that it’s super fast to brew a cup of coffee (it takes about 2 minutes from the time I turn on the machine until the time my cup is full) and it’s easy to keep clean (just throw the k-cup away when you’re done with it, and that’s the whole clean-up).

K-cups can be pricey, but we buy them at Costco for about 30 cents a piece, which is the cheapest I’ve found.  You can also get a reusable filter and use regular coffee to cut down on costs, if that is an issue for you.

We have one. Instead of using the k-cups we just bought the refillable filter, so we just put our own coffee grounds in it everyday. It’s a lot cheaper that way, and you still get the convenience of making one cup at a time.

My sister got one for Christmas and I love it! It’s so easy to use, quick to brew and go in the morning, and then I’ve got a variety of choices in the a.m. (if you buy various K-cups, obviously). While they’re a bit spendy, I’m not one to brew just plain coffee at home, I’d buy it on campus, so instead of spending $3-4 on a cup of coffee, I’m only shelling out about $.50/k-cup. (And using my mug, not to-go cups, yay being green!)

As you can tell, a Keurig is going on our registry as well 🙂

We have one in our house now, but Fiance uses it more often and he loves it. And like @chexmixDC we have the reusable filter and just put in our own coffee. I say, go for it!

I LOVE mine.  The coffee does cost more than regular coffee, but if you buy them from BJs or Amazon, you can get them for less than 50 cents, sometimes around 30 cents, and for us, it’s better than wasting the rest of the pot (or buying coffee out at a few bucks a cup instead of makign it at home).

I do know that some of the newer models don’t seem to be as well built as the older ones.  YOu may want to read some reviews and buy an extended warranty if possible. 

It’s a little wasteful if you look at the trash perspective of the cups, but so worth it to me.  I run the drip tray (which will hold a cup of coffee… don’t ask how i know 😉 ) and the part where the cup goes through the dishwasher about once a week, and vinegar through the tank about once a month because we have such hard water.

Mine is going on 6 years old now and works just as well as it did on day 1.

We have one at work. Its great if you can use the refillable filters. Otherwise, its soooo expensive to buy the kcups. They do make knock off cups that fit in there though, they are not as tasty, but they are cheaper.

I love and adore mine. I don’t know how I lived without it and just like chexmix said Keurig sells a refillable mesh k-cup where you can use your own coffee if you want, so you don’t have to by the normal k-cups. However, if you buy them in bulk it’s about a quarter a cup, which I don’t think is so bad.

We have the Breville and we LOVE IT. It is SO much more convenient and less messy.

@SoontobeMrsA: You just have to be careful when you fill the cup and empty it. Doing it that way is more like a regular coffee pot, except you’re not going to have extra coffee that you’d have to throw away.
