I prefer Yuban or if there is a Costco near the Kirkland is a really good coffee.

It has been years since I saw Yuban on the shelfs. In these parts it is Folgers and Maxwell House. You can buy other instant brands like expresso and some Italian ones.

I really disliked the Kirkland coffee.

then, on mornings nothing will do but a great cup of diner coffee (you can practically feel the fat white ceramic coffee cup hooked in your curled fingers)--you pop a 'donut shop' k cup into your keurig, sit back and taste the nostalgia....:)

How long have you been using your machine, Vit?
I can't believe all the reviews saying that Keurigs die right around the time the warranty runs out.

pac, i've only had my keurig for about 1 1/2 years, but i use it daily, and make a LOT of coffee! i have been reading some of those reviews about the early demise of keurig coffeemakers too. and that surprises me. after all, it think it is well known that keurig's profits come from selling k cups, not machines. it would certainly be in their best interests to sell reliable coffeemakers, and to back them with excellent customer service. that said, it looked to me that most of the problems/complaints concerned only certain models of the keurig machines, (and not mine). :)

I was almost ready to pull the trigger on one this morning when I saw all the bad reviews. Probably 70% good and 30% bad, but that's too much for my comfort.
Amazon has one for 189, the Platinum, that comes with a bunch of K cups and also the refillable cup. It seemed like a good deal, but not if it's going to quit in a year.

Keurig customer service is tops in my view. A huge problem I had turned into an easy to fix problem and I was back to my coffee brewing within 30 minutes. Little time on the phone with a nice rep and Bazinga...coffee.

I've read great things about their customer service and how they will easily replace the broken machines.
