Re: Pimp That Product

I'm a Keurig fan, yeah the k-cups are more expensive than regular coffee but on the other hand you don't end up wasting half a pot either. If you shop around you can find good deals, Target usually sells 18 packs for $8.99. Not bad considering most grocery stores sell 12 packs for the same price.

Re: Pimp That Product

I too think k-cups suck. I just think the coffee they produce sucks and its always weak. We have one at work and i never use it. The one we have only gives you 5/8th of a cup on the full cup high setting. Im guessing it can be adjusted or calibrated but no one here has ever done it.

I think they are nice to have for company or if you only want a small cup of coffee but if you tried to make iced coffe you would have to use at least 2 k-cups to get 10+ ounces and for it not to taste watered down.

That said its as convenient as it gets and you dont waste coffe like Matty said.

I thought that too but the B70 makes up to 12oz and if you pour it over ice you should easily have a 16 oz cup of it.

I will buy one give it 30 days if it sucks it can hit the road.

It probably just needs to be cleaned. Running some white vinegar through the system once a month keeps it working great.

Yeah, I've had mine for about two years and I really like it. I usually only have one cup of coffee in the morning so it's perfect for me.
I usually get my k-cups at Bed, Bath, & Beyond, because they have a ton of options and if you use one of the coupons that you always get in the mail, which never actually expire despite what is written on them, you save like $2 a box.

Its only a few months old and has been like that since we first got it. Maybe its broken? It gives you just enough coffee that if you run water through it twice on the low setting it fills the cup to the brim so you cant add anything to it or walk with it.

Yeah sounds like something might be wrong with it then.

Re: Pimp That Product

Keruigs are good. I have one and like it, but when it dies my next coffee maker will be another pot. When you first get the coffee maker the K-Cups are delicious, but after a while it loses the taste.

Definitely de-scale (white vinegar) it once a month to keep it from getting too much sediment in it and to help keep the tracks clean! Overall, a great product to make coffee quick. The lower the setting you brew on, the better it tastes.

Re: Pimp That Product

Since we are talking about coffee does anyone have a recommendation for a french press style coffe maker? I drink a lot of coffee at work and would like to do so at home when im off, but i dont want a full blow coffee maker. French press seems easy and doesnt take much space. Should i just get a cheap one or are the nice ones worth it?

Re: Pimp That Product

Here's the coffee maker I have...I LOVE IT. Hamilton Beach BrewStation.

It dispenses one cup at a time and there's no glass pot to break and scrub. I use a permanent filter instead of paper disposable ones. Keeps the coffee HOT for 2 hours after brewing then if you want to extend the heating time, just tap a button and 2 more hours. Coffee stays tasting fresh too, no burner to scorch it.

Think I paid about $70 for it several years ago. I have the 12-cup version with programmable timer, they make a 6-cup too.
