Just to keep on topic here, Andy please let us know what you think of your new "brewer"!
Most of my friends are named whatshername. Hard to tell them apart.

Andy, good luck with your new purchase. Enjoy!

I just finished setting up and programming the coffee maker. I brewed a 12 ounce cup of Newman's Special Blend - Extra Bold Medium Roast. I can attest it's hot enough. It smelled great filling the cup and tastes pretty good.

Witht he cost of k-cups and the maker I would think it better be better than "pretty good". You can get "pretty good" a lot cheaper.

Super.

I'm fortunate enough to have K-cups at the local hardware store. I don't need to buy a boatload to get a decent price and I can change flavors instantly. What started out as a 5' wide section has turned into both sides of an aisle. I love that too sweet hot chocolate, too. Café Express or something like that. It's good when you need a chocolate fix.
I wasn't a fan of Newman's coffee, myself. Not strong enough.

aw frankZ, let's allow andy some space and time to test and taste, to experiment with and explore his new keurig toy and keurig's vast coffee fields, free from all other's coffee preferences. i am confident that andy will reach a scientifically sound assessment of the keurig subject, utilizing his usual logic-driven method of inquiry....

You've made that point. I was taste testing one of the 60 free coffees we got with the pot. I can also use a 'My K-Cup' device to brew my usual coffee.

We bought this because we wanted the convenience. We were tired of brewing two pots of coffee so SO could have her decaf and I could have my dark roast.

Good prices, low shipping cost. Unfortunately they won't ship to me and have no plans to do so. Which is OK. I'll stick with Tweed and Hickory, the prices are wicked good and the little tea bag coffee things are more environmentally friendly and cheap as heck too. ($12.99 for 50). I am constantly trolling for good deals. I'll post if I find any super deals.
