    So I'm getting one of these in the next week. I saw they have a butterscotch caramel and ice coffee. Just wondering what some of the people here would suggest?

    Newmans extra bold
    Emerils Big easy bold
    Starbucks breakfast blend/Pike Place (bit expensive)
    Green Mountain breakfast blend. I heard dark magic is good also but i haven't tried it yet.
    Vanilla Biscotti by Folgers isn't bad either.

    One of the best ways to buy K-cups is at Bed Bath & Beyond. They send out 20% off mailers at least once a month if you are on their mailing list.

    I only drink the hazelnut. I'm not too adventurous. I do love how fast and easy it makes coffee though :)

    I recommend avoiding the gimmicky toy and get a real coffee maker, real beans, grinding them yourself, and not putting koolaid or chocolate syrup in your coffee and enjoying the real deal.

    They make a k-cup that is empty... you put whatever kind of coffee/tea you want and place it in the maker just like any of the pre-packed ones...

    It's a great product when you are only wanting a cup or two...

    I recommend trying a Keurig sampler pack. If you can't find any in a store you can order them online. You can then try different ones and see which you prefer.

    Mama Sue buys everything that is new,so we have one and I asked her ,"what are we going to do with all the beans and grinder now",didn't even slow her down.Went back to Target or Bed Bath And Beyond and bought a ground coffee holder that fits right in the same place.I must warn,if it is not closed the grounds will come out when it opens under pressure.I over filled the holder and caused it to not close. I always get the second cup out because I'm not a die hard coffee drinker and use French Vanilla creamer and sugar.
    While I am venting, a new set of stoneware pots and pans,a set of red enameled stick proof pans with a clamp on handle to move them while hot but makes them stackable under the cabinet with no handles to get in the way,a convection cooker that lets you cook everything at once in a shorter time,you have to watch the infomercial to see how it is done,then she saw a induction cooker that doesn"t get hot unless the pots are cast iron or steel,back to the store for red enameled stick proof cast iron pot and lid and cast iron skillet to match. Here I had gotten comfortable with the electric grill. I could cook bacon,hash brown potatoes,eggs all at the same time or 4 pan cakes at once with bacon worked in between them. That's just this summer.:eek::mad:

    Another vote for "Donut House", both their regular and their decaf versions.


    I'll tell ya, I got my K-cup maker for my birthday almost exactly 1 year ago and consider it one of the best kitchen gadgets– ever!

    Love ours!

    It's great for that single cup and not wanting to screw around making a big pot.

    And the quality of the coffee is outstanding.

    The K-cup maker sits right next to our regular coffer maker-a Cuisinart Grind & Brew Thermal... And they both get used.

    Sam's Club sells a variety of K-cups from Donut House to Starbucks Pike Place. If you buy the Keurig machine there you get 36 free K-cups along with a reusable coffee filter for $129. The reusable coffee filter to use your own coffee in place of a K-cup runs about $17 at Bed Bath & Beyond.
