Maybe I do need to step up a grade or two to add more pizazz to my mornings.

My Keurig keeps me away from coffee bars...

I love my Keurig. I have had it for 5 years now and it works perfectly. We get our K cups delivered from Amazon every month. I also love the hot chocolate and apple cider.

I have and use daily my Mini Keurig, which is great for an individual cup of coffee, hot tea, hot chocolate, Iced Tea or Iced Coffee, or even a cup of hot water (which I use for tea bags). You can also get pod containers for filling with your own ground coffee or loose tea. Very versatile really, but you do pay a price for the comfort of making 1 cup at a time (actually a choice of 6, 8, or 10 ounces. The larger (taller) Keurig's will handle taller mugs/cups, which the mini cannot.

We have aKeurig at work and it's a pain in the butt to use.

I usually go down the hall to the cafeteria instead.

Both Keurig and Tassimso have the same drawback; you have to buy their coffee modules, and they are expensive, especially the Keurig K-cups because Keurig holds the K-cup patent and sues anyone else who tries to make them.

I have had my Krups Home Cafe machine for years and a Senseo which I recently purchased for 30 bucks directly from Senseo. They both use coffee pods which can be purchased on line or in brick and mortar stores for a lot less than the cost of K-cups or Tassimo modules, or you can buy a Perfect Pod Maker and some filters and make your own pods with coffee of your choosing, which is what I do.

For those of you "going green," coffee pods are biodegradable, while Keurig and Tassimo modules end up in the local land fill.

Everything.

It takes for freaking ever and you have to keep opening and closing it to get it to work. It might be broken but it's brand new.

Our boss likes it but we all wish we had our old Krups thermal carafe.

Its faster and easier to walk down the corridor and but a cup of coffee.
