We have a Tassimo, I'm very happy with it. One main advantages of a Tassimo is that you can steam & froth milk, so you can make some pretty good Lattes. (the chai is really good).

The advantage of the Keurig is that you have way more choices in coffee. So it's a matter of preference. I'd research both though before buying either.

I also have a Chemex, which makes the best cup of coffee that I've ever had, at least at home. But for convienance, i use the Tassimo.

Costco/BJ's/etc usually have boxes of 80 for about $30-32 range.

Lots of ways. That's 67 cents per cup. You can get down to right around 50-53 cents if you use online outlets and order 24 packs or bigger. Amazon cases of 50 are cheaper, I think bigcatcoffee.com or coffeeforless.com are cheaper and you can get free shipping if you order over x amount.

You know, everyone swears by Donut House coffee that I know that has a machine. I just can't get into it.


My wife loves it. It's too light for me.

I think that's my issue with it too. I like a little bit stronger/darker roast. So maybe that's what I can't quite place my finger on.

If you want fast & easy okay coffee go for it (and expect it to break down in a year or two).

None of the Keurig choices can hold a candle to freshly ground & roasted beans.


I'm SERIOUS about having a DECENT cup of coffee every morning. I buy coffee that is ALREADY GROUND in brands like Starbucks, D&D, Green Mountain, whatever is on SALE. I like FAST and EASY, so I'll probably go for this.

Can you just refill the water reservoir as needed, or does it need to be dumped and refilled for each use?

www.alpinevalleycoffee.com

It's fantastic. Has a HUGE variety, sales, and the best part: build your own variety packs.

100 k-cups for 69.95 (and free shipping). Mix and match. Great customer service. Couldn't recommend this site more.

My favorites lately are Green Mountain's Kenyan, Sumatra, Lake&Lodge and Coffee People's Jet Fuel and Wake Up Call.

The southern sweet tea k-cups are pretty good.

I save a little money by using a big cup and running one K-cup filter 2 times to fill that cup, honestly it doesn't taste any weaker to me, my wife disagrees.

If you like great coffee and don't mind if you comeback spoiled, don't forget to hit the authentic Espresso bars in Rome. Nothing better!

I got a sampler pack of Spicy Eggnog, Golden French Toast, and Gingerbread coffees. Only tried french toast so far and I'm really disappointed. I was looking forward to that one the most too. Not even sure what it tastes like. Not vanilla, but not regular either. My mother said it smelled good while I was brewing it.

Also got the apple cider. I usually like cider but this one was a little bit too tart. I'll drink it but I won't buy it again.

Got my first box of Starbucks last week, Sumatra. Very good, maybe not actual Starbucks store quality but good enough.

You know, you can buy a Keurig K cup filter cup that you can fill with your own special ground coffee of your choice.

If you were SERIOUS you'd buy BEANS and GRIND them YOURSELF.

True enough. Pretty happy with keurig though. Starbucks is good, but still quite a but more expensive than the rest. Like most of the
Green Mountain bolds. For any of the flavored ones I've found they're too weak unless you brew it on the smallest cup size.
