I have a home Keurig and a travel Keurig. One to two cups in the morning with cream and sugar. Weekends are maybe up to 4 cups a day. Shrek most times has only one cup a day.

I have a Tassimo and I don't like that I can't do refill cups or shop around for better prices. My mom gifted it to me and I really like the coffee that comes out of it. I'll use it until it dies, 3 years and still going strong.

Hey, whatever works for you, right? If someone likes their Keurig, that's fine by me. Since we're the big-pot kind of people though, I've been feeling a bit unloved by Green Mountain. Over the last couple years more and more of what we like has become available in ground only too. I like the smell of the whole bean as it's grinding right under my nose.

When I looked around for alternatives, I was surprised at the price of Dean's coffee. Very competitive compared to any quality coffees out there. Needless to say, Cheep Me was delighted to find out that we love their coffee as much as or more than what else is out there.

CG, if you're a member at Costco, check out their selection of whole beans. I bought a bag of Starbucks French Roast whole beans for a cost of $6.49 (give or take) per pound. They also have Peet's coffee and several other brands. At $6.49/Lb average cost, it's about as cheap as it gets for premium coffees.

Thanks for the suggestion Andy, but the nearest Costco is about 60 miles from us. I noticed a while back that they opened an Ohio location the next city over from where we used to live. After reading all the praises that are heaped upon them by those of you who can shop there I fully intend to consider the distance to Costco from our next house.

Those are some mighty fine coffee prices. But, like a true Cleveland sports fan, I'm familiar with the phrase "wait till next year". Looks like that is now becoming my mantra for our move back home.
