My observations of a Keurig 1.0/1st Gen. brewer so far

We recently purchased the K75 Platinum model from Big Lots recently for $120, there's no free K-Cups but
you do get a water filter. It has a larger 72oz. water reservoir, 5 cup settings and is a bit more programmable.

As I've mentioned before I still haven't found a coffee that I like as much as what my 4 cup Mr. Coffee makes.
I've came close with Green Mountain Donut Shop by running it on the 8oz setting and then running the same
K-Cup again on the 4oz. setting, I have large mug. I don't like really strong or bitter coffee. I've tried the
My K-Cup thing and it makes good coffee but wow is it ever a mess the clean up.

Another bad thing is my wife's favorite is the Gevalia Cappuccino stuff at about $1.10/cup. Luckily she only
drinks about 2-3/week.

You can get little K Cup filter gizmos and make your own coffee. I use the Melitta system for mine. The DRM system can apparently be bypassed, which is a good thing.

So you're using the JavaJig with their paper filters? That's not too bad at $0.12/filter. I didn't realize they
had little paper filters for these reusable K-Cup things.

Anyone using the Ekobrew system with their paper filters? The filters are down around $0.05/filter.

Can anyone recommend a Keurig machine in the under $100 range? How do I know if it uses the proprietary system or not?

The proprietary ones will say 2.0 on the box.

This is probably the best deal out there right now.

The week after we bought our K75 1.0 brewer at Big Lots they had 20% off everything in the store which
would have brought it down to $96. They usually run that deal once a month or so.

Looks like $120 was a very good deal already.

Any idea whether the water filter mentioned for the K45 in the Newegg deal is a standard part of the machine, or something else? About how long would a filter last before needing to be changed?
Looks like the K45 is not hard to find for $75 on eBay.

The K-cup 1.0 machine carried by Costco comes with the same filter, as did my Cuisinart. I'm sure replacement filters are available for purchase.

All the filter appears to be is a tiny bag of activated charcoal. It's suppose to be changed every two months.
We usually fill the Keurig tank from the refrigerator which also filtered, we probably don't need the Keurig filter.

We have the K45 at work and it has been operating flawlessly for over a year. It gets a daily workout, it is used by 30 or so people throughout the day.

I'm also tempted to get one for $75, even though I already own a Philips Senseo and a Krupps, both which use pods, not K-Cups. Ever since the pod makers and pods got removed from store shelves, the pods can only be ordered online, while Target and Meijer regularly have k-cups on sale. I still think the pod method brews a better cup of coffee, however lately convenience trumps quality.

About a month ago I bought a K45 Elite from Kohls for $89.24 after one of their coupons (It was on sale for $119.99). We like it. Might be nice if it had a bigger reservoir, but it's not a big deal. Found equally good deal on the 2.0 version but was turned off by the proprietary K-Cup requirement. And yes, I ordered one of those adapter thingies yesterday, just in case we decide to upgrade in the near future. smiling smiley

Am I the only one that still boils water on the stove and uses a Melitta pour over?

Thanks for the tip. Got a bid ready to go on an eBay auction.

I was made aware of the David and Goliath coffee war going on between Keurig and the Rogers Family a year or so ago. I had used a number of Keurigs for the past 6 or 7 years and could not find a Kcup brand that I really liked on a daily basis. I happened upon the “San Francisco Bay Organic Coffee” brand on Amazon, that was half the price of other Kcups, and tasted great. I was hooked. Then I heard that Keurig was suing them and that the Rogers Family, who own the company, won the lawsuit. Not to be outdone, Keurig now releases the “Keurig 2.0”, which limits the type of Kcups to only their certified brands. In turn, the Rogers Family supplies a work around for free: [www.rogersfamilyco.com]. I recommend their French Roast which costs less than $25 for 80 kcups using Amazon’s “subscribe and save” option.

I recently purchased a really nice French press lately that I'm dying to use -- I just need a teapot for boiling water.
