$$$$$$ Coffee!!! quote:

I just don't get it. The coffee manufacturers must be in on it with Keurig and Tassimo. Laughing all the way to the bank. And we eat it up with a smile.

Would you pay $149.99 for this?:




Yet, we have no problem spending $14.99 for a 24-pak of K-cups.

Want just a cup or two in the morning for your commute?

We have this coffee maker. Can brew two individual type coffees. Different blends if you like. Program 'em when you go to bed...wake up to two go-cups of your favorite blend.
.03 cents per cup!!

Pretty delicious. I figure it costs $2-3 for a homemade cup of coffee though which is pretty steep.

I got a Keurig for x-mas last year.... ignored it for 6 months, but started using it now. It is pretty convienent... plus I found the Green Mountain blends actually taste like coffee unlike most of the other ones.

It is still more ecinomical than getting a coffee at a shop, although they have one at work and it produces a massive amount of garbge each day compared to using the conventional method.

Kind of funny, people make such a big deal about grocery shopping bags being bad for the environment and then producing way more garbage from a trendy machine.

Just another trend and most of this latest trend will be stored away downstairs or in the garage in about two years when the next big thing comes along - that or people will be Kijijing that shit.

What's more amusing is people make tea this way - when did it become so difficult to put water in the electric kettle, boil it and then pour some of that hot water into a cup with a teabag?

Personally don't get it - making a pot of brewed coffee in the morning doesn't seem to be all that difficult. Half a pot doesn't seem all that challenging either - I must be missing something here (inflated per cup coffee price, more waste?).

Sell me on this shit, all you Keurig and Tassimo proponents.

My coworker has a Tassimo and it's friggin quick, not messy at all and super easy (the french vanilla smells pretty darn good too). Then I've got my kettle, french press and burr grinder that is a whole process and is a bit of an art to get exactly right.

Basically it comes down to convenience vs. taste imo.

And good coffee beans are not cheap either. Neither is a quality grinder

There are also some pretty good local roasters like Big Mountain and Mountain Blend

I have that same HB coffee maker and I don't like it. I bought it for the thermos and that part is ok since it doesnt have to heat the glass pot, it tastes the same all the way to the bottom. However I hate the pour spout on it, dribbley POS. It also comes with a basket to make 2 blends, but that is useless since its a shitty screen basket and not just a normal paper filter (which is far superior)

The 2 cups it comes with are nice until you actually go to use them, terrible insulation and they cant close so will leak if tipped. I would go back to Black and Decker, even though their pot is smaller on the insulated version it pours much easier. It does heat it nicely and makes good coffee though. I pay around $1.00 a pot which gives 5 regular size coffee cups of decent coffee (no folgers shit)

I'm going to have to try a cup of poo coffee one of these days. If I do end up moving to SE Asia somewhere, maybe I'll even get into the poo coffee biz.

We picked up some reusable k-cups from amazon and fill it with our own grounds. It brings the convenience of the single cup machine down in price. I think it was $15 for 4 of them. You just pop them open, fill to the line, and put it in the Keurig.

Who cares how adults spend their money?
In a praxeological sense, they are acting perfectly rationally.

Everyone wants to live in the world of the Jetsons and we get coffee at the push of a button and all of the sudden it's a crime against humanity.

Especially since it's new and the price of things is always high when things are first introduced. Over time either the quality will improve or the price will go down, or both. Depending on the demand and the popularity.

From what I've read, some are instant and some are not, depending on the brand.
