Default New coffee maker

So this morning I fix up my Mr. Coffee and hit the brew button. Nothing happens. I check the cords and outlets but the thing is just plain dead. It was a cheap model and lasted about 3 years so I guess that is OK. I've been shopping around and looking at Consumer Reports and I decided on a Keurig. Suckers are expensive though. I was about to just give up and head to WallyWorld for another cheapo when I got this deal via e-mail. I shop at Kohls a lot and have one of their credit cards so it was an easy checkout for me. The machine came with 12 K-cups and I ordered an additional 18 K-cup pack of Emeril's coffee. After the discounts and the $20 back in Kohls cash the bottom line was $86 + tax. Free shipping. I normally blend my own morning pitcher of half regular, half decaf, and 1 scoop of chicory. I'll get one of the reusable brew cups so I can still use my blend. I'm not sure how long the deal is good for but you can get it here if interested. http://www.bradsdeals.com?tid=840566.

DISCLAIMER: Brads deals is one of the best deal sites I have found. I also get a little kickback as an affiliate. :)

I swear by my Keurig. I love it! It's great because I only need single servings and always end up pouring it out when I make a whole pot. Very quick and easy and the varieties of K cups are great.

When you get your machine also be sure to register it on the Keurig website. When you purchase 2 24 packs from them you get an additional 2 24 packs free.

Default Re: New coffee maker

Everybody around me has a Keurig. You know what we're still using? A Farberware perculator that we got at Sears about 10 years ago. The thing still works great, but I know that perculating coffee is the worst way to make it. My daughter works at Starbucks so I hear that all of the time. Lol. I'd like to eventually get a Keurig, but I'm in no rush at the moment.

I have this, and it's absolutely awesome. Gives you the option of either a single cup or however much of a pot you want to brew. You can also set the clock and programmable timer to begin brewing as your alarm goes off for a full pot once you're showered and dressed. Or set the single-cup side to begin about 15-20 minutes later as you're getting dressed. All you have to do is pre-fill with water, fill the filter, set the timer, and go to bed.... your coffee will be ready when you are in the morning.

I did forget to mention that I have a radio with a built in timer mounted underneath the cabinet where the perculator sits so we can plug the perculator up to it and set it to go on and off whenver we want. That is convenient.

The main thing you need for making good coffee is a burr grinder. It is a separate appliance. Most of the drip makers with built in grinders use the blades.

We have a cusinart drip maker that is satisfacory. It is getting old now so we may need to buy another one soon.

Every once in a while Target will have a deal that if you buy 3 certain boxes of K-cups, you get a $5 gift card (basically $5 off).

Also, the cheapest K-cups seem to be San Franciso Bay and Eight O'Clock. If you have a Costco close by (not sure about Sam's club), I've seen SFB K-cups for as little as $0.31 apiece....of course, you have to buy like a box of 80 but still a great price.

If I can find other brands for $0.50 apiece, I feel like I've found a good deal. Usually they are about $0.60.

If you get a chance, try to find Cafe Escapes Chai Latte and try it out. I found them at Target. Tastes like Christmas to me

I also get the Archer Farms (aka Target brand) K cups sometimes and they are cheap and aren't bad.

Still using my Mr.Coffee coffee pot that I got about 10 years ago. The thing still works well too. I can easily drink a pot of coffee in a morning so I don't think I'll be changing anytime soon.

She can give you her markout every once in a while, 12-pack of kcups/week for me, between that and work 5 days a week it's more than I need. The keureg is awesome

You can also get the attachment that is like a reusable cup that you put ground coffee into then it goes in the keureg. A lb of coffee goes a long way like that
