    Keurig really took a hit when they put proprietary cups into play.

    Yeah, there was a time when everyone wanted one.

    That belongs in the "you're older than dirt if you remember" thread.:)

    Here in the heart of Hipsterville I have 3 Third Wave type Coffee Shops within a 2 block walk and 6 within 4 blocks. Am a regular at one of them.

    The choices are insane. So many ways of various pour-overs, presses and other chemistry lab looking devices.

    I'm happy with a nice mug of the house brew at my favorite place. Get their cold brew by the growler for home use.

    You know they guy that invented the Kurig coffee thing wishes he never made it.

    Why, because the little plastic cups are causing so much trash and having a bad affect on the environment versus a old school paper filter.

    Have you tried a nespresso macine? They aren't drip, they are pressurized. They also do espresso. I'm not a Kuerig fan, but I love my Dolce...they aren't as popular here, but they're huge in Europe.

    They make cups that are reusable that you can put your own coffee in. Both Keurig and Nespresso.

    But but but they want to sell you new cups after every cup.

    It's the modern day corporate crack dealer on the block. :lol:

    We went back to a regular coffee maker after our Kuerig. No foofie French press either... My daughter has one and its the stupidest thing I've ever tried to use. Those things suck!

    When I was still working as a teacher, a friend of mine talked me into doing some after hours translating locally for a company that makes aircraft propellers for Beech, Cesna and Bandeirante. He spent a lot of time in Europe and one day, came home with a small honest-to-God European 2-cup PROFESSIONAL expresso maker, complete with the tamper and strainers. He gave it to me if I wanted to add a 220v outlet for it. If you REALLY desire expresso as my wife and I do, this is the way to do it. The machine is old and was probably used at one time in a bar. It has a kickass pressure chamber and gauges, as well as a steam tube to heat up milk. It is solid stainless steel and weighs in at around 30#...not made for moving it around much, but it does a great job.

    I'm on my third bean-to-cup machine over maybe 20 years - if you going to have an addiction, do it properly....

    Years ago drinking your first cup of coffee was a necessity....today it's an experience.
