I have a Keurig and I love it. It's great having the convenience of making a cup at a time.

I bought the "My K-Cup" accessory and I use my regular coffee (Tim Horton's -- Y.U.M.) instead of purchasing the individual pre-packaged coffee cups designed specifically for the Keurig.

Enjoy!

Just got one for home also. Find a bean or grind you like and use the K cup. They make a killing on the coffee!

I got on as a present from my daughter for Christmas after drooling over the one she had.
I bought the Kcup as a cost saver to make tea and coffee. I'm the only one in my house that drinks coffee and using just the one serve coffee maker I wasted alot. The Keurig makes it alot more convenient.

We've had one for a couple of months now and love it. Bought one for our Daughter for Christmas and its about her favorite thing (perhaps after the MacBook Pro she got). Another selling point for us was that I can have decaf while my wife can have regular coffee. Similarly, she can have hazelnut while I drink extra bold.

We usually buy our K-Cups from Bed, Bath and Beyond since they always have 20% coupons around. That brings the cost/cup down to under $0.50. Also noticed that Amazon has some good prices and a very large selection.

As far as cost goes, its really pretty good since you never waste coffee. And the ability to have a fresh cup of coffee, of whatever flavor you want, at any time of the day is just great.

My mom and I bought one for my dad this Christmas, but I have a feeling that we'll be using it a lot more than him.

We also have a Braun Tassimo (now the Bosch Tassimo) from a few years back... the Keurig blows it away. I like how quiet the Keurig is, and how it only takes a minute to heat up after turning it on. We leave ours on all day and turn it off at night. Unlike the Tassimo, you can get a cup of coffee any time during the day without having to wait for it to heat each individual cup of water.

Just remember to register it then you can do a buy 2 get free on your first purchase. I am loving mine to but I must be a coffee whimp because I use the 9oz drop & can not handle the bold cups on the 11oz drop.

See, I always thought that the Keurig would be a great idea if there wasn't so much plastic trash from the little disposable coffee packs. Didn't know that a refillable filter existed...this makes me re-think the whole idea.

I love mine too but I kinda wish the latte or cappuccino could be made frothy (milk included).

The hot cocoa is amazingly good.

I don't drink coffee - DW does, but hated to make for just herself. So we bought the Keurig. She's able to have the coffee she loves - and a nice variety on hand.

My mother-in-law got me one for Christmas. I thought I wouldn't really like it (I always hate any kind of change). BUT I LOVE IT!!!! It is so easy and no clean up - my old pot seemed to have 20 parts I needed to wash each time I made a pot. I was afraid you wouldn't be able to "sit and have coffee with someone" beacuse of making the cups one at a time, but they are made so quickly that the second is ready by the time cream and sugar is in the first.
I just put the old pot in the pantry. Love the Keurig!
