Keurig Coffee Makers

We have a Keurig single cup coffee maker that we plan on taking on our 6 week excursion. Anyone else have one or use one on the road?

No, it (and all the little packets) would take up too much room in our small trailers. We prefer our french press or the newish Starbucks Vias. Generally, I don't find the Keurig coffee packets strong enough for my taste anyways...but I think if you like them and have the room, it'd be pretty convenient.

We like the via packets too. Must have coffee... so I wouldn't rule out the expresso machine either!

We used a Kuerig single cup in Lucy for a while last year. I liked it but it's hard to find the little cups in small town in Wyoming. After a fair test, I went back to my little four cup Cuisinart. I like coffee really strong, and the Kuerig just doesn't cut it for me.

Depends on how bad your habit is! I have a Keurig, personally it not only doesn't get it strong enough but its not hot enough either! I also think those little pods are a PITA. I luv a french press, am addicted to Starbucks Although the recent price increases have me boycotting.

Thumbs up

Keurig... Love them... We have a bigger one at home with the reservoir and have a red Miniplus in the Argosy... Would not be without it. Any strength of coffee from mild to bold can be had.

My company sells them as well as the coffee, makes great coffee, but even the smallest model is heavy and difficult to store when underway, and occupies significant counter space

We bought a new press from campmore made by Nissan and it works great for us. The Starbucks Vias are great as well. If you like strong coffee, we made lots of Cowboy coffee at the recent DH5 rally. That will get your motor running in the morning...

Mini Keurig

Love having ours on the road. Hate the wait (no res.) Like the ground coffee holder.

I have owned a Keurig several years now, and we absolutely love it. I purchase my K-Cups from Green Mountain Roasters directly.

They have many varieties of coffee's and teas, and various strength blends. I joined their coffe club and get great discounts with free shipping. While we were on the road full time I just placed the Keurig in my spare cooler and just left it on the floor under the dinnette, while moving from place to place.

For us it eliminates mess and I don't toss half filled pots of coffee that I brewed and didn't drink. Also, I found the elite models of the Keurig allow you to select water temp which makes for a better cup...

Thanks for the input from all the above. I purchased a bunch of K-cups from both Keurig and also from Shopco who had a huge sale of different K-cups. I have no problem getting a good strong cup of coffee when I use any of their bold roast coffees. I also have no problem with the water being hot. It takes 3 minutes to heat the water and get a fresh cup of coffee. We have the red one-cup version and that's about as large of a space that I would want. It's not that much larger than a regular 8 cup brewer. It's just a matter of finding a space for the K-cups.

We'll do our French Press. We like several cups each in the morning and it's got to be full flavored (read strong).

We have the little silver Keurig single cup brewer. It has no reservoir. Works great. No coffee grounds in your cup or to clean out of a press. We have a larger unit at home. Nice, clean and easy.
