Coffee is disgusting, plus very expesive.
i bought a keurig coffee maker in january for my husband who is an avid coffee drinker. we got the insert cup so you can put your own coffee in it because he is very particular about the coffee he drinks. although the cups of coffee you can purchase work well in it, when you use the insertable cup, coffee spews everywhere. we tried more than 1 keurig and ended up returning them all for the same reason. it's great if you dont mind paying a lot of money for those little cups of prepackaged coffee...and dont mind the environmental impact of all of that waste....but if you want the cup for your own coffee, you should try another brand. we bought a zosirushi and love it a lot.
After spending this kind of money on a coffee maker, I expect more. The water is not hot enough is my biggest complaint. Ill stick to my French press.
It is the best coffee maker. Mine just stopped working within a month and when I contacted them their response was they can't do anything.
I don't get these machines, and I never will. The coffee is alright, sure, but the waste you make with it? Not worth it. You can easily get a coffee maker for cheaper (or get a really nice one for the same price) and not throw out a wad of plastic every time you make a cup of coffee (plus the box it comes in). In my opinion, the convenience isn't worth the excess garbage you create. You can get better tasting coffee on the stove with a cafeteria. I'm glad I was able to try this at my friend's before I gave into the marketing because I don't personally feel comfortable putting that much excess waste into the environment unless I absolutely have to.
I loved my Keurig. Very convenient! However, when it was apparent roaches had nested in the unit I had to throw the entire unit out. Very disappointed.
Dies after a year I have gone through 3 keurig I love them when they work but they have a bad habit of going bad and at the cost they are just not worth it .
Keurig I had one if these years ago it was good but it got dirty really easy.
Coffee tastes great but I returned mine. Not make the coffee hot enough. I had to microwave each time I got a cup in order to make it hot..
We use it in the waiting room where I work. People always say how good and hot the coffee is from it. The only thing I do not like is that the place to refill the water is very hard to clean.
I have mixed feelings about my Keurig. I've had it for almost 2 years, and I've had my ups and downs with it! First of all, I love the convenience of just making once cup...and it's always hot! It's very easy to use, and you don't have to clean a pot after you make your coffee. Cons: don't really like the k-cup coffees. I'm a Starbucks girl, so I gladly grind my beans and use the reusable filters. There have been two times that my Keurig has malfunctioned and after a lot of headaches, descaling, calls to the company for support, and replacing the reusable filters...I got it working again. I had the same coffee maker before my keurig for about 6-7 years, and I never had a single issue with it. I think there are still some improvements to be made for such an expensive product. My mother has also had trouble with her Keurig. I think once this one finally dies, I'll probably go back to using a regular old coffee maker!
My husband received this coffee maker as a birthday gift in 2008. We enjoyed it for about two years - we loved the convenience of single-cup brewing, and it was really handy when we both commuted to work. After the first couple of years, though, we started experiencing problems with the device. The product was out of warranty due to its age, and no matter how clean we kept it, we were often not getting ANY liquid out of the device. We were either getting no coffee or two-cups worth of liquid. We found it would cost nearly 60% of the initial price of the device to repair it, so we wound up replacing it with a traditional coffee maker with a timer.
I am torn... I love the machine, however, after owning it for a while and doing the required "descaling" every 3-6 months, I have had two stop and completely shut down on me. The good news is that the company replaces the unit, but the bad news is I go without coffee for two days while waiting for a new one... I will say though that since my husband and I drink coffee at different times throughout the day it is so convenient to have it at the touch of a button however we like it without having to brew a whole pot, and we can also use it for iced beverages. Very convenient, cost effective, and I don't think I could live without it, but it can be frustrating at times
My son purchased this for me for Christmas before last. Do have mixed feelings about this. Love the fact that it is simple and easy to use, not to mention convenient to have a fresh cup of coffee on demand. the down sides are the K-cups can get expensive, and if you like your coffee medium to strong roast, it will probably be on the weaker side. The my k-cup didnt work for me, ended up buying a different one to use. Also mine died just earlier this year without any warning. I did clean mine often and properly so who knows why it died. It was fun to have one and I miss it. Probably will invest in the new Vue once they have more cups for it.
We have one at work and I like it but I don't really think it is a must have.
