Not if you only need one cup of coffee, cider, specialty, etc. The glaringly obvious premise of the Keurig.


Now there's an unscientific generalization if I've ever seen one.


You mean the precursor to OEM remote stereo steering wheel controls considered commonplace and a safety feature on today's cars?
Of course there are going to be "unscientific generalizations". What do you want, an annotated bibliography? It's simply my opinion about it.

Also you can get a drip coffee maker that brews directly into a "to go" cup. You don't have to brew a whole pot.

I see a lot of you guys drink coffee. I personally don't, but I'm interested in buying a coffee maker for my dad. He buys a venti from starbucks every single day and I feel like he's not getting quality coffee and wasting money. Can anyone point me in the right direction here? I want to save my dad money and give him some quality coffee.
Thought I would weigh in on this one. I see a lot of people say they like the coffee a Keurig makes. And that is fine - since tastes vary.

I bought a B40 Elite a couple of weeks ago and therefore have not had lots of experience with it, but I do like my coffee strong and can tell strong coffee from weak coffee. What I am getting out of the B40 is pretty weak (with each of the samples that were included: Newman's, Timothy's, Green Mountain, Donut House - they all seem weak to me. And they are all at the 8 oz setting, not the larger 10 oz btw). If your dad likes a Starbucks coffee, my guess is that he will not be happy with the Keurig.

Bottom line and this is solely my opinion: The Keurig is mighty convenient, but I think I will return it because of the weak coffee it makes. Not for me.

So you're arguing kdawg954's point with an opinion. Got it. LMAO

You failed to read the rest of my sentence (or conveniently neglected it) regarding my one cup point. You just revealed you miss another glaringly obvious premise of the Keurig (hint: #200+). Try that (conveniently) with a drip model.

Next!

I am the same way, I like my coffee very strong. I was nonplussed by the Keurig brewer until I got
this
[amazon.com] last week...I'd try it out if I were you.

It does depend on the variety but generally you are correct. There's only so much grind, tea, cider pulp, etc... you can fit into a K-cup. In fact some of the specialty K-cups even state on the box not to use the 10 oz setting for best results.

If you watch while it's brewing the stream clearly (and expectedly) gets less strong as the process continues. That's a main reason I like my first generation Mini which has only an 8 oz. fill line which generally results in decent strength coffee with most varieties. Of course there's nothing to prevent you from only using 6 oz. or even 9 oz. or so with the Mini if you want stronger or weaker coffee since there's no multi-serving capacity tank. Plus I don't like the idea of water sitting around in a tank if you don't use the brewer for a few days. You're basically forced to always use fresh water for every cup.

Less problems with the first gen. Mini's simple design is also a plus. I don't really see the purpose of a cup size choice (see above comment) or a timer on a Keurig since it's so fast anyway and it's not like it has a hot plate like drip models with timers so if you don't drink it right away it's going to be cold. But to each his own. If you like the bells and whistles, go for it. They make a model for most desires.

Additionally, if you want stronger coffee you can experiment with the reusable K-cups sold by different manufacturers using your choice of coffee types, grind variation, etc. Just don't go too fine on the grind as it can impede the brew flow. I have mixed half fine grind with half coarser grind in a refillable K-cup to get very good results for stronger coffee. Have fun with it if you want.

I got the Keurig OfficePro deal around Christmas for about $90. How does the B70 compare? Is it worth switching?

I also just got my tracking info from Kohl's. I ordered last night (11pm EST).
I ordered 2, but then found out about the cardpool 15% discounted electronic gift cards so ordered one of those this morning (still no email 4 hours later) in hopes that it would be emailed either before my order shipped or before the deal was dead and I could just order 2 more and return my first 2.

But now people are saying they are getting cancellation emails so plan B might not an option anymore. I hoped I can call Kohl's customer service and have them take the gift cards as payment instead, I really dont want to be stuck with $180 worth of Kohl's Credit!Frown

Anyone know if this is possible, to get them to change forms of payment after the fact?


EDIT: Just got a call from Cardpool, I guess if its your first time buying an e-card they have to verify your info. Maybe thats way many people have not seen the "instant results" that others have reported.
I tried they couldn't

Missed out on this deal because of Cardpool. They wanted to verify information since I was a first-time buyer and didn't attempt to contact me until right before their customer service center was leaving for the day so I didn't get the gift card info and missed the Keurig. That's what I get for trying to save a few extra bucks, argh.

Ah, yes i forgot about the "farting" sounds it will make.. prep yourself for other issues to come after the "farts". Thats how mine started... then one day, it brew slowly, brew 1/2 the size, start to brew then stop brewing.. etc. etc. hopefully nothing will happen, but just be aware..
Even so, after 4 years it's already lasted longer than other coffee pots I've owned in the past. I've never descaled it or anything, Just keeps on rolling.

Strength is not a function of over-cooking. A steak with strong flavor doesn't get it from burning the steak. Similarly coffee does not gain strength by dark roasting it. It just masks the age (lightly roasted coffee has strong flavor but it dwindles within weeks) and character/quality of the coffee you drinking. People who buy green coffee at auctions for companies like Starbucks or any other roaster drink it barely roasted to evaluate the coffee. Roasting is an additive to the original flavor. Companies like Starbucks are trying convince people that light=mild (ala Blonde roast). Not true.

Now that we understand the connection between roast and strength we can get into what strength is.

Brewing parameters are measured by % extracted and TDS. 18-22% is ideal extraction. ~1.8g/oz is standard to achieve this result with the appropriate grind and contact time. Heat also plays a role and needs to be 195-205.

Here's how here's a Keurig brews:

Avg. 11g coffee in a Kcup (at $27/lb last I saw) producing an 8oz cup = 1.37g/oz. It should have 14.4g to have a standard ratio with drip grind. You can see why this company is making money..

Repeat: Industry standard = 1.8g/oz, Keurig gives you 1.37 (assuming 11g average in a kcup). Here's an image showing TDS of most popular coffee makers. http://content.reviewed.com/produ...0Graph.JPG

Notice where ideal is? Since the ratio is too small this would cause overextraction into the range over 22% especially with a 12oz cup. On a chart this would normally put your coffee in the "weak-bitter" quadrant. This usually creates bitter coffee with a bite, but this is mitigated to some extent because Keurig purposely sets its brewers to brew at sub-standard temps, which mutes all flavors, including overextraction. It's funny that the new Vue brewers are marketed to brew hotter, wow what an accomplishment you made the water a couple degrees hotter! Feat of engineering! Guess what? It's still nowhere near 201F.

I was talking about a french press. I do have a Keurig though.

I would recommend an Aeropress over a French Press. Unless you like sediment in your coffee.
