The Keurig K-Cup coffee maker out rates the competition of single cup coffee brewers throughout websites such as epinions, amazon, and, and I agree 100%. I got my Keurig as a gift last September and it has been a big hit around my house.  The Keurig is a coffee brewing machine that makes single cups and has been leading this new way of coffee since 1990.

     I love their single cup maker because it caters to each individual.  It’s great for when my mom comes over because she can have her Chai tea and I can drink my Green Mountain Extra Bold and I don’t have to brew two different things and waste half the pot.  It only takes about a minute to make in the Keurig machine and there is really no mess to speak of other than wiping it down every once in a while.   

   < >  It has unique coffee pods called “K-cups” that come in over 200 flavors of coffee and tea to choose from.  I love to try new things, so having so many choices is a great plus for me.   At first I thought that I would have to order my K-cups online, but I have had no trouble finding different flavored K-cups in my local stores. They are sold at Wal-Mart, Kroger, Albertsons and most grocery stores. I found the best selection at Bed Bath and Beyond, but they also have them at Kohl’s, Sears and many other places.   

     The extra bold coffee flavors are my favorite and I suggest that you try them if you like your coffee robust and strong.  So far I have found that the mild flavors are too weak for my taste buds.  

     I know that there are some other single cup brewing machines that have disks instead of the K-cups  which I have read are soggy, require more clean-up and are not biodegradable like the pods are.  I’ve never tried them myself though; I just know that the reviews aren’t as good.

     Another thing I like about the Keurig brewer is that the machine is durable, looks nice, and seems to be quality made.  It has a tall space for a large coffee cup or tall travel mug. It also allows you to choose your cup size, set brew times, and choose the temperature you like best.  I like mine smokin’ hot.  Though it is more expensive than your basic drip coffee maker, it beats the coffee house hands down in price for quality of coffee. Keurig B130 DeskPro Brewing SystemCredit:

     Some complaints I read before I purchased mine were that there were some problems with the machine getting stuck on the “Not Ready” mode, or there was a loud buzzing sound while brewing.  In almost every case, however, the consumer said that customer service at Keurig was very good and the machine was replaced promptly.  I have not had any such problems with my machine in the ten months that I have owned it.

     In conclusion, The Keurig single cup coffee maker is a great brewing system  for you if you want a sturdy, modern looking machine with a variety of brewing options, a generous coffee selection, and a quick, delicious cup of coffee that leaves you with no messy pot to clean up.
