for stop-gap shopping you can bop over to ebay, where all flavors of SFB coffee k cups are still going for $28/80 case and $56/160 case, with free shipping. how long these prices will hold is anybody's guess.

Do you know if their 2.0 system also offers a reusable filter for your own ground coffee? Somehow I doubt that they would, considering its new "feature".

I've always thought they charged above premium prices for the cost of convenience, but their 2.0 brewers are beyond the pale! Since Himself and I each drink more than a cup whenever our Brewmaster gets fired up, even the concept of a single-cup brewing system has amused me.

I just bought a Keurig - have been tossing the idea around for a few months now. I've been browsing through this thread, there are some good tips here.

I hope I love it. I'm not a huge coffee drinker, but I do enjoy a cup in the morning during the winter months. The single serving cups appeal to me for that reason...if I were an all day coffee drinker, or several a day, I wouldn't have gotten it.

It won't get much use in the warm months, I'm more of an iced tea fan when it's hot outside here in the desert.

I just set it up and ran it through it's first cleansing cycle, so I'm looking forward to trying my first cuppa tomorrow morning.

Thanks Princess, so far so good! I just had my first cup of Breakfast Blend. Very good - rich and flavorful. And so quick!

Next step is to register it and get the coupon code for my first box of Kcups. Keeping my brother in mind when he stops by for coffee...he'll say he doesn't want a cup of that "flavory, foo-fooey stuff", just coffee.

I feel the same as your brother. I like my coffee to taste like coffee.

Same here, although I do love hazelnut with a little cream. I don't care for the pumpkin-y flavored coffees offered everywhere this time of year.

My understanding is that the majority of the pumpkin coffees have no pumpkin in them! I'm a coffee purist, prefer coffee-flavored coffee.

The last time I went to Winthrop, I went across the street to the High Tide Diner. The regular staff know when I come in the door the order is "small light with extra sugar." It has never been any different for the seven years I have been going there. A new girl served me. "We have flavored coffee now. Would you like to try one?"

"No thanks, small light with extra sugar."

"We also have hazel nut. Would like one of them?"

"No thanks. Small light with extra sugar."

"Are your sure you wouldn't like one of our flavored coffees?"

"No thanks. Small light with extra sugar."

By now, I am getting frustrated. My voice is starting to become louder. And I am making a lot of effort to remain polite. The place is packed with customers. The man sitting at the counter right next to where I was standing, thankfully waved for one of the regular waitresses to come over and rescue me. She had my 'small light with extra sugar' in her hand. Bless her heart. She gave it to me on the house. I gave her what I would have paid for the coffee as a tip with an emphatic "Thank You!"
