    Keurig Home Brewer

    I just got a new home Keurig for Christmas and was hoping to get some opinions from those that already own one. Where do you buy your k-cups from? How many oz's of coffee gives me the best result from 1 k-cup? I have used one previously but don't have a lot of experience with them and am very excited to try it out!

    Re: Keurig Home Brewer

    I don't have a Keurig (yet - my sister has one and it's awesome), but if I did I'd be buying my K-cups from Costco. As far as how many ozs of water, that's to taste, so you have to play around with that on your own.

    We got ours last week and I love it! I like strong coffee and think the Starbucks dark roasts work out well. I haven't tried our local coffee shops beans in it yet. I have bought the kcups at Fareway and Target.

    Re: Keurig Home Brewer

    You can get k-cups pretty much anywhere. I have one and it's awesome. Also, you can make different ounces of coffee (at least with mine you can) at 6, 8, and 10 oz per cup.

    You can also get reusable k-cups that you can put your favorite coffee, tea, etc. that doesn't come in k-cup form in. This is also good for keeping costs down since k-cups can be expensive.

    Do feel there is significant difference in taste between 6 oz and 10 oz? Also, what if I have 12oz mug and run it on 6 oz twice with the same cup?

    Use mine only for tea, but the reusable cup is the way to go. Cheaper and more options available.

    The taste differential depends on the type of coffee primarily. I wouldn't use the same cup twice though because the second time around will be watered down. Just play with it a couple of times and see what works best for you. Also, you can get a replacement filter where you load ground coffee directly into k-cup slot which can keep cost down allowing you to fill your 12oz mug for cheaper than using 2 k-cups.

    If you have a Bed Bath and Beyond by you sign up for the coupons and use the $5 off any one item coupon. Saves me a ton on Kcups

    We just bought one, love it. The reusable kcup is nice, but a little more work since you have to clean it.

    Re: Keurig Home Brewer

    I've got one and like it. I'd buy the k cups straight from the Keurig website once you figure out what ones you like. It's the same price and target except you can get them in a 80 cup box for a lot of them plus you earn points from free stuff there.

    Re: Keurig Home Brewer

    Where ever you get you kcups from, make sure you don't spend more than 60 cents a piece. You can get them for about 56 cents each on Amazon or try costco or sams. My favorite is Coffee People Donut Shop.

    to brew your own coffee, use this product.

    Amazon.com: EZ-Cup for Keurig Coffee Machines By Perfect Pod: Kitchen & Dining

    the My KCup from Keurig sucks! coffee grinds in your coffee and a big mess.

    Had my keurig for 3-4 years now and I love it.
