The Keurig website wants $25 for 6.
That's about the same price as Brita filters sat Costco. I wonder if they filter the same amount of water.

I use the Instapure faucet mount filter system. 4 filters are about $16 and get me about a year of filtered water. This is so much cheaper than the Pur that we had previously. The Instapure filters 100 more gallons per filter than the Pur and costs $4 per filter instead of an average of $15 for the Pur. I got this system at Lowe's home improvement and I think Amazon has them as well.

The water tastes good enough that I don't use the filters that came with my Tassimo.

Green Mountain costs $20 to ship to Canada or you can order through the sites they sponsor. I just use the Keurig site or Tweed & Hickory as they are cheaper for me.

Yesterday I had a Caribou coffee which was pretty good and today I had the Tully's House Blend - also pretty good. Tully's French Roast is still tops on my list.

Do you have any Van Houtte to try? Folgers Black Silk is a fan favorite here too.

Neither. I'm jut going through the 60 we got for free and my own stuff to form opinions.

We got:

12 Nantucket
12 Tullys FR
12 Newman's Special Blend
12 Tullys House Blend
12 Variety Pack.

The variety pack has some a decaf, two flavored coffees, a herbal tea and several coffees, regular and extra bold. Oh, wait, the French Vanilla is Van Houtte.

I liked the Nantucket. Haven't bought those though. Van Houtte has a couple of flavors we like but the French Vanilla isn't one of them. The butterscotch is very nice and my daughter quite likes that one. The raspberry chocolate truffle is a favorite at work.

I'm not a fan of flavored coffees. We also have a hazelnut. We're having family visit in a few weeks, I'll save those for them.

We're with you Andy, flavored coffees are good for other folk. Himself likes Nantucket best. I like trying all the different varieties from various growing regions. For me it's a toss-up as to whether I prefer Guatamalan Finca dos Marias or Mocha Java, but I think the latter has an edge.
