We love ours. I love the flavoured coffee so I buy k-cups sometimes but they aren't that widely available here so I bought two of the reusable filters and I buy the little packets of flavours in the grocery store.

Also my kids make hot chocolate by putting their powder in the cup and then letting the water run through the k-cup holder and do the same with cup-a-soup and instant oatmeal!

Best invention since sliced bread!

Our B70 (now B77) is used morning and early evening, seven days a week. I drink a lot of coffee so I now use the My-K-Kup for my own grind. (Currently Cafe Bustelo in the big yellow can) Personally I prefer coffee flavored coffee and the extra bolds. Deb likes her flavored.

We also refill the reservoir with filtered water. In three years daily use we have not had to descale at all!

The singleservecoffee forums are a great resource and you can trade for kcups you'd like to try. Nice friendly community. http://www.singleservecoffeeforums.com/

I also use www.coffeewiz.com for most of my purchases. They are in NJ and offer free Fedex shipping for $50 orders. I usually get my coffee in a day if they ship same day. Pretty quick! There are some other popular sites like bettercoffee and coffeegiant but being on the east coast, coffeewiz works best for me. Coupon code 2010sale for 10% off through 1/5. (No I'm not affiliated.)

Just got mine too and I am completely addicted. My favs are the Donut shop coffe by Green Mtn and the India Spice Chai tea from Celestial. It is so convienient for people who have different tastes. DH is extra bold kinda guy and I like light roast. Now we are both happy.

A few of my family members have them and they came in very handy around the holidays. Everyone was able to drink what they wanted.

I am a tea drinker and do not drink coffee at all. DH doesn't either. He like his tea too. I was amazed how good the tea was. It really was tasty. My DH wants to get one, but I can't justify the expense for just tea. We do entertain on occasion so it would be handy for that.

Does anyone know if there are a wide variety of teas available. I might be able to give in if I knew there were many tea options.

My mother has the little cup that you can put anything in, even teas.Hmmmmm?

I have a question for anyone that has both the Tassimo and Keurig. We have a Tassimo and absolutely love the Gevalia Creama Coffee, does Keurig have a coffee similar to that? While I love my Tassimo there is only one store within forty minutes of my house that sells the T-Discs. And I like the option that the Keurig gives you of using your own coffee.

TIA.

Does the Gevalia Crema have milk or cream in it? If so, I don't think there is anything similar offered for the Keurig.

If you read the instruction manual closely, it says something about running hot water through the machine after using the hot cocoa mix because the powder or syrup could clog the internal pipes of the Keurig. Because of this, I doubt anything that could potentially damage the machine would be offered.

There are over (200?) K-Cup varieties available, most of which you can order online through coffee wholesalers. I've also found that K-Cups are MUCH more widely available than T-Discs. I'm sure you will be able to find something you like.

Just sent you a PM!

We got ours last December and I LOVE it! I want to get a Mini to leave in our Owners Locker at WDW because I miss it so much.

Our favorite flavor is Golden French Toast by Green Mountain. It will be coming out any day now and its only available until March.

Does anyone have any recommendations for decaf coffee that is also bold/strong? I know, it sounds like an oxymoron, but I love a good strong coffee flavor, yet want to stick with decaf as much as possible.

I'm searching for that too. The link that George provided looks like a great resource for finding just what we are after.

I just sent you the code. Enjoy your coffee.

Funny that you mention getting a mini for your Owner's Locker. We are going to BLT in Aug and I was thinking it would be great to pack it. (don't have a Locker).

Have you tried the Timothy's Decaf Colombian? It's probably the best decaf coffee I've had at home.

There are quite a few teas available in kcups. But I'm useless when it comes to tea. We are not friends.

The mini B30 is awesome. A co-worker bought one for us to use at work. It is suppose to have a travel bag as an accessory. It's small enough to be packable and no water remains inside after use. It takes longer to use than the bigger home models but it is still awesome.

This doesn't make sense Simon. Only water runs through the plumbing of the Keurig. Nothing else. Water (only) is injected into the top of the kcup and the hot coffee of cocoa exits the bottom of the kcup into your mug. The only thing that would ever need cleaning from chocolate residue would be the kcup holder. Personally I don't like the hot cocoa kcups. They are very thin tasting. The best hot cocoa for the Keurig is Ghiradelli cocoa packets. Pour that in your mug and then just run a water drop from the Keurig into the mug.

Coffeewiz has a couple extra bold choices in decaf. Green Mountain Dark Magic would be a good choice. Timothy's Rainforest Espresso is also very good. These are perfect for those who don't like a stronger cup of coffee but do want a larger drop. Say the 11oz from the B77 model. There are also dark roasts in decaf that may be good. Most are french roast and I find that over roasted for my taste.

The fun thing about the Keurigs is experimenting with the different strength roasts and drop sizes. You are bound to find the perfect cup that suits you.
