Keurig Coffee machine

I've been using Moccamaster for years. It brews excellent coffee. In general I would say there really is a difference between cheap and expensive coffee machines. I've had a few machines over the years and the Moccamaster is the best.

Don't forget to clean them regularly though. Even the best machine will make bitter coffee if it's dirty.

+1 $25 Black and Decker

Even better, World Market sells a Euro-type glass jar with a strainer on it. Doesn't always filter all the coffee out, but hey, crunchy coffee is underated

It's a plot.

I've never seen anyone use that stuff in Europe, and I lived there long.

Paper filters or death. Hopefully paper filters...

For once, I agree with the Norwegian. Must be the first time ever!

However, when talking about a mid-prized consumer range, my personal preference includes these as well: OBH Nordica. Works quite well with quality coffees, like él Presidente.

We have a Keurig machine here at work. They are certainly convenient.

My dentist's office has one but I won't go near it because I don't know how often it gets cleaned.

I use a Tassimo machine (same idea as the Keurig) at home and I love it. Super convenient and easy to clean! I only drink the lattes, cappuccinos or hot chocolates, though, because I don't really like the taste of the other Tassimo beverages that I've had. They just recently introduced Starbucks-brand discs here but I'm not interested in trying them.

So it's been about 4 months since I bought the Keurig Coffee machine; and so far it's the best coffee machine I ever used. What other sub $200 machine rivals this? Anyone else have a Keurig?

Our second one died after about 5 years. First one lasted about 10 years. We've gone back to a Hamilton Beach that uses Mr. Coffee style filter and just buy good coffee for it. It also has a second part with a small gold mesh filter to only make one cup at a time, and enough headroom for a travel mug, for those times (frequent) that I want more coffee but my wife doesn't.

We liked them a lot when we had them.

We also have a little one cup Moka pot, which makes nice coffee.

wait are you telling me CM stands for coffee maker?  Wow.  I knew I loved this game!  Necro'd a thread from 2008  dang. Someone here REALLY loves coffee.

That's my brewer; a Coffee Maker (CM): Black Sea. I like my coffee black and strong as hell 😈☕
