Since wife has started the Kureg thing coffee is inconsistent from one cut to another and in general it is bad as if powdered.
Still have a coffee pot.
Which brand do you prefer?
how do you brew it?

Maybe enough like one brand enough I can start from there.
I mean if most people prefer one brand there has t be a reason.

Love our Keurig. Green Mountain Our Blend is our favorite. Tastes most like coffee, not bitter, very smooth.

RV-less for now but our spirits are still on the open road.

Never have used a Keurig, too much waste IMO. We grind our beans, using a burr grinder, usually a dark roast, not Aribica beans, and use a drip coffee maker. A percolator can make great coffee, but you run the risk of bitterness and oiliness. Haven't bought any name brand coffee in decades, last time would have been in the early 80's. Very fond of Dark Kenya AA, Sumatra, and the like.

Love a French press, but hate the cleanup.

Organic coffee company is my new favorite. It's fair trade, eco friendly coffee and the entire packaging, including the pod top, is corn plastic and totally compostable. Tastes fantastic. I hated using single use pods that fill the landfills so was thrilled to find an eco friendly alternative to grinding beans daily.

I order from Amazon if I can't find it at the local co-op.

I use a drip coffee maker (Mr Coffee) remember them? I like 8 o' clock coffee after being recommended to me on this forum. I probably need to drink less coffee and tea and more water.

Folders Classic Roast made in a currently owned Black & Decker drip coffeemaker. Also made in the Mr. Coffee til we kill one with much usage. Kids gave us a Kuerig one Christmas, beside costing arm and leg for pods, taste just not there. We usually make two 12 cup pots every morning, So you figure the cost of K-cups each day....

I'm glad you asked; I've been wanting to vent. Keurig coffees are ****. Well maybe Green Mountain is OK, It's one I haven't tried. From Paul Newmans, to Donut Shop - from Costco to Peet's, blind folded I couldn't tell one from another and none of them are any good.

The best coffee your going to get is from fresh roasted ground beans using the filter method. Sorry all you French kissers, ah er, pressers.

Don't get me started on which coffee maker is best. I'll tell you right now that the cheapest one is best. C'mon man, a reservoir, heating element and cheap electronic timer. 'Nuff said.

I used a Keurig for a few years but I never really liked it. I was happy when it bit the dust. Bought a basic Mr. Coffee drip machine until I could research something better. Ended up using it for a couple of years until it died. It wasn't awful but it never got the coffee quite as hot as I like. Now I use a Ninja drip machine with McDonald's coffee. Suits me fine.

Those cheap coffee makers will work good as long as they get the water hot enough. Remember the awful Mr. Coffee coffee makers? They just heated the water a little and pumped it over the grounds. Awful stuff.

The coffee we buy now is from Organic Coffee Company, and is great. $20 for 5 pounds of beans. Tough to beat.

Kuring is ok if used daily but other than the MINIs they do not empty so if they sit sit sit the water stagnates.. Coffee should be very consistant but the pods.. Well Folks there are thousands of tons of plastic from Green Mountain Coffee in land fills now.. Of course you can use a re-fillable "pods" and Maxwell House if you like.

I have a 4-cup Auto Drip right now with Duncan Donuts but usually Folger's

I have a convertable (Uses pods or a filter) single cup machine as well. it empties fully for storage.. i do not use it often

Kurig Pods are I think (Do not quote me on this) Argon filled, it is one of the Inert Gasses and thus the pods should be goods to brew decades after purchase.

What can change day to day is the water. Use a PUR or Brita filter to fill the supply side.
