I've been seeing amazon mentioned a lot during k-cup conversations.  Wal-mart may be another cheap option.

Keurigs are the greatest thing to happen to coffee since travel mugs.

That's where my wife buys all her k-cups.  Probably 1/2 the price of the grocery store and huge selection.  Get yourself a sample pack.  Find out what you like and order a ton of it.  I don't think she could live without her Keurig anymore.

K, let's get specific. Say I want to brew iced tea, can I run the thing twice on one cup or do I hafta use two?

Disclaimer, the things still in the box and I don't like tea. I'm seeking knowledge.

Love mine.

The dark roasts are awesome.

I do not like the chai or apple cider. They both have the "sucralose" aftertaste. (and I LOVE chai )

ETA: The cups are really only good for one brew. The second time through is pretty weak... unless you only are making small volumes.

I don't even buy K-cups any more. I just grind my own beans and use the filter basket thing. That K-cup machine is about the best damn Christmas present my parents ever got me.

we have one, wife loves it, its too expensive for a cup of coffee imo, i drink 3-4 cups in the am and that thing would cost me too much, so i use a press

This. Although I just use a pound of store bought coffee, it makes the machine very convenient AND very economical.

Their prices are probably higher than some places, but Coffee Cow's selection is second to none.

Amazon.com is the best place to buy K-Cups in bulk.



Manager bought one for the office at work, everyone loved it.  Then we lost it because someone bitched from another department.

DO NOT buy an adapter so you can use your own ground coffee.  I have 3 and they all leak, spew grounds everywhere and generally suck butt.  


I have the Kuerig brand one and no issues. The screen mesh inside keeps the grinds in place.  Which ones do you have?

I too am curious about this question as I have been considering getting one of the "brew your own" adapters.

Bed Bath & Beyond with $5.00 off and or 20% off coupons is the best deal on K-Cups.
Bed Bath & Beyond coupons never expire, they accept 2 year old expired coupons.

Costco, Sams * BJ's all sell Newmans Own K-Cups 80 case for $37.00

ETA - Someone here posted about Starbucks having a 1/2 price K-Cup sale but it ended Sept 30th.

I've had K-Cups, and while they are good,  I will go against the trend and say I get a fine cup from my regular one cup Black and Decker Coffee maker with mesh basket and Starbucks or some other better blend.  

And it costs 1/2 of what a K-cup coffee costs per cup.   I will agree the K-cups are good, but when I factor in money savings, the Black and Decker, which I've had an earlier version of 20 years ago, tastes fine.

Like using it, but it's expensive.

The My K Cup (brew your own) works fine, highly recommend getting one because the first time you wake up and realize you're out of K cups and can't make coffee you'll be ticked, but it's a PITA to make a couple of quick cups that way.

With coupons and sales you should be able to get close to fiddy cent/cup, if you're beating that I'd be happy to hear about it, if you're paying more than about .60-.65/cup you're paying too much

Yep.  Bloodbath and beyond usually has a good selection.  We buy different brews from there when we have a coupon to see if we like it.

 



Then we either buy from Costco or order from Amazon.

Walmart has the best prices around here.

It is less than a buck per cup, not bad considering we used to hit the gas station and pay almost 2 bucks every morning.

I switched to a stovetop percolator a few years ago in an attempt to recreate the flavor of my grandmothers coffee that I would drink with her when I was a kid.

Amazon carries a lot of K cups, and some in bulk.

I like donut shop coffee, with the Kona blend and Emeril's bold as a close second place.

I have the K-cup shaped filter that I put a spoon full of grounds in ours.    I'm too cheap to buy Kcups for a single use each.

My sister has the reusable basket, and she just told me to make sure the grounds weren't trapped between the lid and the basket when you closed it.  There was a very fine powder at the bottom of the cup, but I'm guessing that was from the grounds getting through the screen.  I would get a Keurig if they weren't $90 or more.

This. Over $50 or so the shipping is free and they send discount codes every few weeks.  My last order of 96 cups was less than $40 delivered.

Here's a little trick for ya'll.

When you start brewing your cup, as soon as the coffee starts to pour out, bearly open the machine just enough for it to stop brewing.

Let your k-cup steep for about 45-60 secs then close it back and it will resume it's cycle.

Makes a stronger cup.

I can't ge the My K-Cup thing to work.  My result is weak coffee because the water is shot right through the middle of the damn thing and the grounds get washed up and not even hit by the water.  Hell, half of the grounds are still dry.

What am I doing wrong?
