Are K-Cups coffee worth it?
I've been thinking of getting a Keurig for the office.
What is the best deal on one?
Are they worth it?
It depends on your usage. If you like 1 or 2 cups a day, through the day, then yes, a Keurig is for you. If you like to drink 4-5 cups in the morning before work and don't touch another cup for the day, then No, a regular brewer is for you. If you are an occasional coffee drinker that likes variation of flavor, coffee strength, and you entertain and would like to offer coffee to everyone (especially knowing you have 1 in the crowd that always uses decaf), then Yes a Keurig is for you.
It is important to follow the basic instructions, like cleaning the water canister with hot soapy water at least once a week. Running a cycle of vinegar once every other month. My recommendation is to buy it from Costco and keep the receipt. There is, unfortunately, an issue with some brewers due to Keurig having to decide to install a louder pump to do the job, or a quieter one that is actually too much for the machine to handle. Consumers wanted quieter and the ability to exchange for new machines.read more collapse
Depends on what you like for the k-cups. The best deal, in my opinion, is the ekobrew cup, buy your favorite coffee and fill it up. It isn't because I am an eco-snob (although I sort of am) and that K-cups are evilevilevil (although the argument goes both ways on that), it's really because having owned one of these machines since November, I really haven't found all that many varieties I like.
To the machine itself, I don't know how well it does in an office environment - I just have one at home. Like any office machine, there's always the problems that come along with any communal device, and I can't see it being more or less a problem than a traditional coffee pot.
Although you probably would not have to clean a ton of coffee grounds spilled on the counter. Ew, hate seeing people not just take a paper towel and wipe that off.read more collapse
