how I hate those machines. Completely wasteful and they brew awful coffee. my office had one. How hard is it to boil water and pour it over a filter? Oh but then you don't get the little steaming neon light show I guess.
The only thing more annoying than the waste is the name. Watching jennie G say 'kyEURig' over and over makes my teeth hurt.
How are they wasteful?
r2 they generate buckets of waste plastic every day.
The cups aren't recyclable, to my knowledge.
I have one, though, and it's great for a family or company, especially on a cold winter's day. Some people want coffee, some others want hot apple cider, some people want tea and everybody gets what they want in a few seconds. Nothing to wash, either, and the quality of the coffee can really vary. If you think the coffee's too weak, you can always make it a little stronger by brewing the smaller-sized cup. I get the Starbucks and Green Mountain flavors, and my morning coffee is at least as good as the kind you buy in a coffee shop.
Coffee tastes like shit and they're not green machines. I like the Earl Grey tea. Also the hot chocolate leaves behind a chocolate taste.
I agree that the hot chocolate isn't that good. The aftertaste is something I hear about from a lot of people. I've only tried a couple of brands, though; I've heard some are better than others.
I don't really understand why the plastic cups can't be recycled. Something about the heat and the liner. Keurig devotes something like 10% of its profits to researching ways to be more green and hopefully finding a way to make the cups recyclable.

FYI almost *no* plastic gets recycled. Some can't, like the K cups. Some can, technically, but it's so much cheaper to just make virgin plastic. There's no market for used plastic so most of it gets landfilled.
Jennie looks cute with that short hair do.
I knew the marriage was real when this horrible actress almost cried on Access Hollywood 2 days ago about her marriage. So whatever you say about her. That marriage was 100% real. That girl almost burst out crying when they mentioned the demise of it. She's a horrible interview. But seems like a real, honest, person. Oh yea, and when they asked if her new reality show was gonna be "real" she even said well "it's staged". Hah. Gotta love a real girl. Go Jennie.
Why does she say it's not available in stores yet???
What does this new machine look like? How is it different from a regular Keurig?
Yes, you can recycle the cups. I've made a video to show you how. Let me know if you like my videos and want me to make more!
I love my coffee from a french press. You can make small amounts easily. The taste and especially the body of the coffee is out of this world. It's probably the "greenest" way to go since the filter is wire mesh.
Here is the full infomercial with Jennie Garth. Adele is in it too.
Have you tried the Aeropress, R13? I think it makes a better cup than even the french press. It's cheap, fast, and cleanup takes 5 seconds.
Hmm, maybe we need a separate coffee thread.
No, I haven't. Actually, I'd never heard of it until your post. I'll take a look at one next time I'm out shopping. I just got a new press for Christmas, so I probably won't be getting anything for a while.
I get great coffee from my Keurig and it takes less than a minute. You can't beat it. The trick is finding the right coffee for you. There are about five coffees that I love. If you take the time to figure it out it's worth it.
The name Kuerig is really annoying.
Just had more Keurig today at work. MMMMMMM GOOD!

You can buy a reusable Kcup filter for it.
I wasn't going to buy one but now that Jennie Garth is endorsing them I will rush right out to buy one. Her endorsement is golden!!
Where Jennie Garth goes, so goes the nation.
It's weird how she makes me really hate her while watching the Kelly-steals-Dylan-from-Brenda episodes of BH 90210, but she totally makes me love her in this infomercial. I can't drink coffee at work without thinking about her, LOL.
I think she looks prettier now than she did back then.
She does look good, even though I can just see the doctor sticking the needle filled with collagen into her face.
Happy Birthday Jennie! I had a cup of Keurig coffee today at work just for you!
She was terrific on "Dancing With The Stars". One the ones who just got better and better each week.
They put the coffee that's "less than all that" in those little cups.
You know they do ….
The sell the good stuff as whole bean or vacuum packed grounds.
Don't you hate the aftertaste of hot plastic in your coffee? No? And you're not bothered by the substandard beans, the expense and the wastefulness of non-recyclable cups? Well then by all means, use Keurig.
Keurig is for people with poor cooking skills, too much money, and who wouldn't know good coffee from hot ditchwater.
Has anyone seen Jennie nowadays? She's thin and gorgeous! After splitting with Peter, she decided to shed 30 lbs and start living life again. I'll bet her new man's ass won't smell like cheese popcorn.
