Thanks so much for posting this. Coupon totally worked. Wanted a keurig single cup brewer for awhile, but I absolutely refuse to pony up $100+. fiddy bucks is fine an' dandy for this puppy. Plus got some Starbucks k-cups to put me over the $75 hump. Sweeeet. :-)

I had one of these in a hotel room and I tried to hurt it, I couldn't so I bought one-love it.

i dont get the concept....crazy idea
so if you have MORE than one person, you either keep replacing the "coffeee thingy" or you get the other coffee maker out.

Never could get myself to hit the button on one of these because I couldn't bring myself to spend almost a dollar a cup to make coffee at home when I can make it in the drip coffee maker for about a dime a cup. I drink four to six cups a day, so we're talking big bucks. Also, I prefer to buy my coffee fresh from a local roaster and grind it myself. At this price I am tempted to try it out with the My K cup reusable individual cup filter.

What's the recovery time on this thing? How soon can you brew another cup?

Do NOT buy that Keurig thingy in the link above to brew your own. Instead, go to Bed, Bath & Beyond and get the brown on there that uses actual filters. Search online and you will see that it is pretty universal that the Keurig branded one is not very good.

Never mind. The My K Cup filter doesn't work with commercial models.

For using your own coffee, I recommend either the Solofil reusable K-cups, or ekobrew cups. Both fit perfectly in the Keurig without removing the standard holder and they make a great cup of coffee. You can adjust the strength yourself by how much you put in the cups.

On this model you have to use the K-Cups right? It doesn't have a filter basket, or does it?

I've never had coffee from one of the Keurig brewers. I too like to buy fresh whole beans and grind them myself. I use an Aeropress when I'm just brewing one cup, or a drip machine if I need more (or I'm feeling lazy). So if I had a Keurig brewer and a re-fillable basket thing, how is this different/better than a drip machine or the Aeropress? Also, my coffee mugs are all 14 oz., so this thing won't fill them up.

I have one and it works great for me. I am only a 1-2 cup coffee drinker though. If you and/or your fellow dwellers drink more than that this can get expensive with the pre-fab k cups or time consuming with the basket.
However, I've never had better coffee out of a machine or coffee maker than by using this with the reusable basket and filling it with Seattle's Best coffee. It's close to being as good as a coffee shop.
The trick is to only fill the cups half way. People tend to fill them up and there isn't enough room for the hot water to properly brew the coffee. I get a pretty strong cup of coffee with just a rounded teaspoon. In a regular drip coffee maker it takes at least twice that amount so this thing saves me money. Very efficient brewer.

@daericks: You are so wrong on this; I have had Keurig brewers for 5 years and wouldn't consider another brand. But, hey, what do I now - I just need a great cup of coffee every time I make one.

People that are stating Keurig-brewed coffee costs $1 or more per cup are SO mistaken. I routinely buy my K-Cups online (from a few different websites, depending on where the sales are) and my average cost per cup is right around $0.36 most of the time. I've never paid $1 a cup for my Keurig-brewed coffee. That's just insane. However, I'm very happy to pay $0.36 per cup for that "first cup" taste - every time. I used to waste a lot of coffee using a traditional brewer, because, let's face it - the coffee tastes like crap after the first cup because it ages rapidly and grows bitter.

@starmanbackwards: in my house, where everyone uses the keurig, it is just standard courtesy to trash the K-cup after using it. That way the machine is ready to go for the next person, and I don't feel like I'm cleaning up after someone else. So LNG story long, yes you throw,the thingy away after you use it. LOL

I tried this deal. First online I tried it and It flashed a notice stating I needed to call and talk to CS. I called and talked to CS, they said the coupon is only for technology items and not for break room type items. So this is a no go for me!
