I just saw this article about a recall for Keurig machines.

My suspicious self's first thought was that they were going replace these units with 2.0 machines that won't brew other brands.

I'll be right back, I need to polish my tinfoil hat...

I heard a rumor that there is a competing type of coffee maker that is less expensive and you can use any coffee you like. The best part is that you can brew more than one cup at a time because it comes with a pot!

A while back, SO bought me a Keurig as a gift. We went through many types of coffees, bought the cups so we could grind our own coffee for the Keurig. I could never find combination that gave me satisfactory cup.

Consequently, I switched back to my Cuisinart coffee machine. I buy Starbucks whole bean French Roast at Costco and grind my own. Much better.

SO continues to use the Keurig for her coffee. Usually Starbucks House Blend, Gevalia Cappuccino or some kind of chai.

As soon as my machine dies, back to the Bunn.

I guess I'm just not very particular. I bought the refillable cups and have been using Kirkland coffee and that works great for me. I do have to add cream and sugar, so that's probably why. I only have one cup in the morning during the cold months, during the summer I won't even use it at all.

We each drink a cup of coffee on Sunday. Sometimes we split a cup. It makes us really jittery.

The Keurig serves our needs. When we used to drink more coffee, we blew through a Bunn and several Mr. Coffees.
