Thanks to georgemoe, simonkodousek, dalt01, and mom2threets for decaf recommendations and/or online retailer info. I picked up a couple boxes of Green Mountain French Roast Decaf tonight since I had some coupons (they didn't have any Dark Magic decaf in stock). Since I enjoy Starbucks, and I've heard their coffees are "over roasted," I figure the French Roast may work for me.

I'll have to try the other decaf recommendations as well:
- Green Mountain Dark Magic
- Timothy's Rainforest Espresso
- Timothy's Decaf Colombian

And I'll definitely check out the online retailers:
- Amazon
- Bigcatcoffees
- Coffeewiz

2) And yet another hot chocolate question. If I want to, say, make a cup of cocoa and then make a cup of coffee, do I have to clean the machine in between the two ?

Thanks.
I would love to know the answers to these questions too.

I am seriously considering buying one. BB&B had The Keurig 3 cup size and water dispenser for $129. If I used a their 20% off coupon and use my gift card, it will only cost me about $50 out of pocket. hmmmmmm???

The difference with some smaller ones is that they don't have a resevoir to hold water in so you're filling it for each cup you make. Mine has a resevoir and we can get through about 5 regular cups of coffee before I have to put more water in.

No cleaning required. The grounds from the coffee stay in the k-cup so all you have to do is take out the k-cup and toss your hot chocolate cup in, or in the case of using your own powder in the cup, just leave it empty and let the water run through to make your hot chocolate.

Ok....I've been accused of costing people money with recommending things like the Kindle.

Because of this thread John and I are now the proud owners of a Keurig Platinum V70.

I used a 20% off coupon (that expired in October) at BB&B.

John's making a cup right now at 9:37pm.

The Dis can be expensive.

I honestly think that you won't be disappointed. You may have to experiment before you find the K-cup(s) that you love, but once you do, it's SO CONVENIENT and great to have your own personal brewed cup of coffee whenever you want one.

I got my Keurig! I even work at a coffee shop. It breaks my heart to throw coffee down the drain and so now I dont have too! I use my own coffee(I get one pound for free a week) with the kcup filter. Really is good coffee for something brewed so fast.

Hi,
I am a nurse in a Pediatric Intensive Care Unit. I had one--which I love--I brought it in one night everyone loved it so much that the Doctors bought us one for Christmas 2 yrs ago. I think about 7 or 8 of my co workers have them now. We all love it! My kids use it to make oatmeal, noodles or anytime a recipe calls for hot water we use it. It is the best investment ever!

If you like Chai tea as much as I do try the Cafe Escape brand (I found it at Bed,Bath&Beyond) It's very good.

Welcome to the collective.

Seriously, a big part of the enjoyment of the Keurig is the opportunity to try out different coffee's without having to brew a whole pot. Its also great when you want French Vanilla and John wants Hazelnut.

Val & I have been enjoying ours for a couple of months now and the novelty hasn't worn off.

I'd also second George's recommendation about the coffeewiz website and their discussion boards.

Coffee People Donut Shop Coffee
has been the closet to DD coffee I have found. We too are now a Keurig family as Christy previously posted. Ian got her the Coffee Maker (I am forbidden from buying Christy anything with a power cord for her birthday), and I got her K-kups. We are loving the Donut Shop coffee and it does taste great. I use two pods on the 6oz setting for my Cove Cafe Cup.

BJ's has one for $139 (I think it is the V70) that comes with 72 Kcups.

That seems like a pretty good deal too.
