Kind of interesting that a couple people addressed the lack of waste since they no longer brewed coffee that they don't drink. However isn't there a plastic cup that has to be thrown away for every cup?

The things kind of make sense for people that only drink one cup of coffee per day. Not my cup o' tea though.

Wow!! $250 for a hot water creater. I mean that really is all a coffee maker consists of.

I would love one because it brews a cup instantly. However, the downsides are that the coffee machine is expensive, there is no standard for cups, be it K-cups, Vue cups, and there is a third type floating around.

I plan to wait until there is a standard for the one-shot cups (and I REALLY hope they don't make tons of sizes like the printer ink cartridge market.) I just don't want a $200 coffee maker with no ability to find anything for it because it is on the wrong standard for cups.

I don't know about the other makers out there, but you can get the little cup that allows you to use your own coffee with the Kurig/Cuisinart machines. We have one of the cups, but haven't used it yet. So with it, at least you don't have sweat not finding k-cups.

DW is the coffee drinker in the family, so the being about to make just a single cup works out great for us. The kids also use it for hot water for oatmeal, cocoa, etc.

For what it's worth, we have the Cuisinart and have been very happy with it. We got it because it had a better warranty than the Kurig did.

I have the extra cup that can be used with any coffee. It works OK.
I have no trouble finding the K-Cups, though. Target has a fair selection, as does K-mart, Albertson's, Costco, Sam's Club, Walmart, IGA, etc.
Shucks, even Big Lots has some now and then!
I think Walgreen's has them, too!

To add to the mix, Starbucks announced a single serve machine due out before Christmas.

Starbucks machine

I am the only coffee drinker and usually only have 1 or 2 cups a day. I use a Senseo machine (uses high pressure brewing) but the disks are harder to find. I like the brew and the flexibility of the machine. This whole market place reminds me of early VCRs - do you get VHS or Beta???
