(Fluff) Anybody have a Keurig or Single Cup Coffee Brewer?

I would like to get a Keurig for the holidays. Does anyone have one or another type of Single Cup Brewer? If so, what is your experience? My hubby and I both drink coffee and tea daily but we like different kinds so I think it would be perfect for us. I was reading reviews online and while some reviews were great, others said the machines don't last. Thanks for your info ladies :)

I've had a Keurig for a year and I love it. It still works perfectly. I think we have the upgraded model, it was more than the basic and holds more water. My only complaint is that we end up spending a lot more on coffee because a bag or tin of grounds is less expensive than a box of K-cups. The best place to buy K-Cups is actually Amazon. They have larger packs at a better value.

I have a Kuerig.  Best advice is to buy reusable filters (My K Cup, Ekocup, Solocup) and beans by the bag.  You will save a lot of money and avoid a ton of garbage from the plastic cups.  :-)

 We have the keurig at my work. I'd never considered getting one for home because of the insane price of k-cups. However, they now make reusable and fillable k-cups. I bought a set for work because I like to drink weird flavored coffee. A ton cheaper that way!

I have a Keurig and I love it.  My husband and my kids bought it for me for Mother's day over a year ago.  Best present I have ever received!  I have the basic model which is perfect for me and I have found that I waste less and as a result I have reduced my overall caffeine intake.  What's even better is you can buy a NON disposable filter for the Keurig and use your own favorite coffee instead of buying the packs (great to have choices)!!!! LOVE IT.

I had one but I gave it to my MIL. We found it to be expensive. Even when the kcups are on sale they're still about 65 cents a piece for a 12oz coffee.
