I love my keurig, especially since I'm a college student and it's super convenient and really easy to clean for someone who doesn't have a kitchen, but a community kitchenette. My keurig stays in my dorm room and takes up very little space which is also nice. I rated 4 stars because newer procured keurigs don't fit all types of reusable pods unless they're keurig brand (and not always easy to get your hands on).

I admit it I'm a coffee addict. I need my coffee in the morning and I need it fast because my life is crazy busy. My kuerig helps me get thru the day. The water reservoir holds just enough that I can use it with out having to fill it every day. The options for k cups are vast and I have the converter basket so I can use my own grounds as well. I love that I can also use it for quick hot water for oatmeal or tea.

Keurig is a life saver in my home. having coffee drinkers of varying degrees in my home has been a problem with keeping the coffee fresh. with my old 10 cup maker it took longer and half the times the coffee went to waste and other times it wasn't enough but took to long to make any more. with keurig everyone can make as many cups as they want quickly......basically a coffee on demand system keeping all happy.

At first I loved my keurig, then after about a year it started "brewing" the coffee soooo slow..it would just drizzle out. I tried cleaning it by running the vinegar through it..didn't help..and then everything tasted like vinegar. I just never felt like it got very clean in there..I wonder what we're really drinking? Also the k-cups are expensive! Especially for someone who sometimes has 2-3 cups/day. Not worth it. Threw it away and got a percolator...now THAT'S good coffee!

Finally, I found the easy - no clean up - fast coffee maker that I need for my busy lifestyle. The k-pods are awesome - I use it for coffee and tea, it's so easy. Just put in the k-pod - push a button and you have your beverage. Great taste - no fuss - no mess or a chance of an exploding pod - a great size water reserve and a cool look. I've bought so many coffee makers over the years and I finally found a keeper.

One thing - you can't make a pot - but this machine is ready for the next cup in 30 seconds (fast) and my guest love choosing their favorite flavor, (there are so many to choose from) so I haven't missed the pot at all.

The Keurig elite Single Cup brewing system is great. I don't drink coffee but i have used it for hot tea and hot chocolate. It took a little bit for me to figure out how to use it but after the first few times it's so easy now. I love the simplicity of filling it with water and popping in a k-cup of tea or cocoa then pushing the brew button. I don't even have to stir the hot chocolate powder into the water.

I adore our keruig! I use it everyday! Oftentimes, I use it for hot water only when I want to steep a cup of tea using a tea bag and not a Kcup. I actually like this older version better than the newer keruigs because the newer ones can sense when there is no Kcup in the machine and won't brew certain sizes of hot water! Serious bummer when I wanted an 8 oz cup of tea and it will only brew 4 or 6. Sticking with what I love, this older version of the keruig is perfect for me!

The Keurig Elite Single Cup Home Brewing System - K40 is the perfect brewing machine for our on the go family. Each family member can brew exactly what they feel like drinking at any time of the day or night without much of a weight... it's better than instant. My husband brews decaf coffee. Our daughter brews iced coffee. I brew decaf and herbal teas and dark hot chocolate. You can now make soup with the Keurig. The possibilities are tremendous and growing all the time.

When first purchased, this Keurig was wonderful! After about one year of weekly use (not even daily since we went out to Dunkin Donuts most mornings instead) this coffee maker has now jammed up and started to make loud annoying noises. I cleaned it once every two weeks exactly as directed to, and cannot figure out why it would have broken so easily and so soon... I do not recommend this specific Keurig brewer... we are looking to buy the 2.0 in the near future now!

I like the Keurig Single Cup because it is convenient if I am the only one having coffee and I don't have to make a whole pot. I also like that I can use one of the refillable cups to add in my own coffee. The only problem is sometimes those pods cause the machine to pop open halfway through brewing. I don't think this is a flaw in the machine though, and I think the Keurig itself works really well

Does anyone not recommend purchasing this? I'm concerned in the amount of bacteria it may gather in the reservoir.

Is there a way to make the coffee hotter, or a way to get a stronger brew? Even dark roasts tend to be on weaker side.
