I’m not a coffee drinker unless it’s fancy Starbucks coffee that doesn’t really taste like coffee because there’s so much sweetness in it. So I’ve never had a coffee maker. I wouldn’t mind drinking more fancy coffee, but I’m way too lazy to go out every day to buy it.
I’ve heard so much about the Keurig, would that be something that someone like me would get any use out of? Thanks!

I think so! My sis is a big Starbucks person, and she has one and LOVES it, especially the flavored coffees.

i havent tried much of their other choices in kcups besides the coffee and hot chocolate, Having worked in a coffee shop i know the things that makes their coffee so good is the syrups they use to flavor the coffee/espresso – you can buy those syrups though! so that might be something to look into but for the most part you are going to get flavored coffee (infused in the beans) rather than like a flavored latte which uses espresso and syrups.
The keurig is great! its just so convenient…i love starbucks specialty coffess but i love a good old fashion cup of coffee too so i always brew starbucks coffee in my keurig with refillable k cups (better for the environment and saves money!)

I’m like you — I never drink black coffee but I love flavored lattes from Starbucks!
We got the Keurig Mini Plus as a wedding gift and I L-O-V-E love it! We have several varieties of flavored coffee, along with hot chocolate and cider. It’s great to be able to make one cup at a time; I usually make mine on the way out the door and drink it on my commute into work.
Some of the coffees do require a bit of milk and sugar for those of us who aren’t into the strong stuff.
Plus, the K-Cups are SO much more affordable than Starbucks. Boxes usually contain between 12 and 18 K-Cups, usually for about $12-$15 each, depending on where you buy.
P.S. The K-Cup version of a Mocha barely tastes like coffee at all. My husband doesn’t like the taste of coffee, but he loves the Mochas.

I have a Keurig and really…I’m not as obessed as most people seem to be about them. I’ve tried multiple varieties, nothing it makes has tasted like starbucks and I really don’t see how its considered so convenient. I still have to fill it with water and I still have to change the cups. My tiny little coffee pot did just as much and I got more coffee with less effort.

Are there good non mocha flavors? I can’t have chocolate and I’m afraid all the good ones will be mocha 🙁
So far it sounds like most people love it though! I think I might just suck it up and see for myself finally.

Ooh, well that’s definitely a consideration.
I have several varieties of vanilla that I enjoy. Like a previous poster said, it’s not the same as a Starbucks vanilla latte, but for a fraction of the cost and the convenience of my own home, I’ll take it.
There’s also great ciders, teas (even iced and/or sweet teas), etc. You can see all the possible flavors here:

Hmmmm…. I’m not a cider or tea fan. Maybe the keurig just isn’t for me 🙁

I LOVE ours! But I think that the best thing we ever did was get a reuseable KCup, and we just put our own coffee in it (much cheaper, and DH really likes Dunkin Donuts so we just use that)…It’s so much neater and less wasteful than a regular coffeepot. And another thing is that you can fit a travel mug under it, which most coffee pots will only let you fit a mug under them (if there the ones with no pot).
Also, I drink Fertilitea, and since it’s loose, I can just put it in Kcup and hit the button:)
Before I gave up coffee for TTC, I tried several of the flavors, and I haven’t yet found one that I have to have, but I agree that it’s fun to try them all out. DH is not into “fancy” so he really appreciates his good ol’ Dunkin. And with me not drinking coffee anymore, it’s useless to make a whole pot.
Here’s the KCup, just in case you’re interested….

i had this one and loved it then my mom bought me this one…you should check it out, much more convenient, you dont have to take out that black k cup holder and switch it with the gray to use it, just stick it in like a normal k cup

I love the Keurig. I drink coffee when I go work nights and a migraine appears. I find it annoying to have to brew a pot just for once cup. Small coffee pot or not. Anyways, they KCups are pretty expensive though. I don’t own one myself, but FI’s parents did.

The Keurig saves me so much money it’s unreal. The K-cups aren’t cheap but they’re a lot cheaper than Starbucks! I love getting to try different types and flavors. You can also buy a k-cup filter and use your own coffee. I wasted so much before and now I waste none, it goes right into my cup and is ready in 90 seconds! I have one of the larger ones so I could make iced coffee in my tall coffee mugs.

Oh, the one you posted is the one we have! Sorry – I didn’t know there was more than one kind – dur:) I didn’t realize it was “eco” that we have…Yes, I love those little things!

There are tons of varieties of K-Cups. I love the Dunkin’ Donuts ones that just came out. I believe Starbucks is releasing some soon too. I think I would marry my Keurig if I could.
