I bought the little $14 adapter to use your own coffee if you don't want to use there's or in case your in Wyoming and can't find k-cups. Ha. SAMs club sells the big box of the k- Cups too. Love mine. Although when camping there is nothing like a big pot of coffee brewing and drink as little or as much. At home is my place I love the Keurig.

I never ever leave home without my Keurig, I do not use K cups (only when someone buys them for me for Christmas). I use the strainer cup attachment that drops in the same spot as the K-cups drop into, you fill it yourself with your own coffee grounds, works great and the whole unit fits just fine in the pantry.

I vote for a French press.
Its "8 cup" European measure equates to 2 of my cups. Ikea has a cheap version that I've been using. Takes little room and cheap to replace.

Yes, the real advantage for us is the ease of cleaning, as in no cleaning necessary, just remove the K-cup and throw it away. No filter to clean or throw away, no grinding, no spilling of coffee grounds, and if the wife wants pumpkin spice flavored coffee, she just pops a K-cup in and Mama is happy.

Well, I've been using my Keurig coffee maker every morning in our As for the past 2 weeks. What a great deal. I found that the "mini" water bottles @ 8oz. are the perfect amount of water. No more dumping and spilling water from the cup. Just open the mini and pour it in. I am sold on this setup.

If space permits, the Keurig B60 is excellent for many reasons: Huge variety of cofffee to suit every taste. Mild like Green Mountain Nantucket Blend. Bold like Emeril's Big Easy Bold. Quick set-up. Easy clean-up. Regular and decaf without two pots. Adjustable brew temperature. Great design. In short, great convenience and high-quality coffee.

Yep....Tried one last Season, IMHO duz not live up to all the hype. The "use your own grind" cup very messy. Now resides in the SIL's kitchen.

Back to the Chemex.....KISS.

Not to start an argument, but what happens to all the plastic of each of those cups when you throw it away? It has to go somewhere where it is stored for hundreds of years. Literally. The plastic will not decompose in many lifetimes. Having a young daughter I am hoping to keep less of our country developed into land fills and more if it available for her to camp in the AS for many years to come. With a french press the organic grounds are the only things that are cast out. When traveling it may be hard to compost as we do at home, but even if it is throw into a land fill, it will decompose and add organic matter to an other wise large mass of trash.

I guess it comes down to a question of can I wait a few extra minutes to get my good (read reallllly strong coffee) to help keep one more piece of plastic trash floating around the world. I guess that is why I am choosing to restore an AS when I could have purchased a throw away SOB for the same price.

I have been reloading the k-cups for over 2 months now. I know that the plastic eventually ends up in a land fill when done. In my case we get 5-6 uses from the same cup and the reloads are a fraction of the cost to use (maybe 8-10cents). Kinda goes against the purpose of using a Keurig for that instant brew. I reload a weeks worth in about 10 minutes on Sunday. I works for us.

we favor the old school, on the burner, grill or hung over a fire, percolating coffee pot... plus I'm clumsy & have broke every coffee pot/french press we've had... relatives have the K-cup but I feel so guilty using them... like I'm pinching mother nature each time☕

Hmmm, it took me a while to work out what a "French Press" was; being from Europe I know it as a "Cafetiere". Anyhoo, I find the Keurig and Tassimo cup thingies an expensive way to drink coffee, although I certainly don't doubt the quality and convenience, particularly when on the road. I'm not keen on the French Press, either, as I prefer my coffee through a paper filter, which takes away some of the bitterness. As I'm the only coffee drinker in the household, I settled for the Aeropress, a simple but effective way to make single cups of coffee. It uses little discs of paper, so it checks that box, and the coffee is always piping hot, which it isn't always from machines. It's one drawback is that it can be a slight chore to load the thing up, then to clean it out. Still, it works for me, especially whilst on the road.

Thought about a Keurig, but the coffee and the unit are so expensive.
