We've got one. I generally just drink a cup or two a day. There's no chance I'm drinking a pot. I feel somewhat bad that the pods are so wasteful, but it makes a decent cup as far as I'm concerned. I drink my coffee black.
I must admit, Caribou is one of the better store brands I have tried.I use a mix of re-usable cup and pods. I have found that I definitely prefer the dark roast in the Keurig over anything else (Caribou Mahogany is what I tend to get).
What exactly is Chai? Is that tea?My wife really enjoys Starbucks Chai
Upon further review, the shape (bottom of the pod) of the Copper Moon pods are slightly smaller in diameter, and they tend to deflect a bit when pressed against the needle. I have seen times when the Keurig shut off due to water not being able to flow (through the pod) into the cup properly.Has anyone had any problems with lid (foil) separation? We've had two Copper Moon pods to rupture at the top (a small area around the seal) and spew coffee everywhere. I emptied the entire box and examined each pod today, and each lid looked intact. Common sense would say the outlet needle was either clogged, or it had not penetrated the bottom of the pod correctly.
I like to run 6oz of hot water into my cup before inserting a pod (a good way to preheat the cup), and I check the water for particles before tossing it. Not sure what to make of this unless the pod seal was weak to begin with.
Rusty you have to read the label on some of these brands has only happened to us once, we bought these pods from Westrock Coffee Company. In fine print which we did not notice it said for Keurig K cup compatible brewers not for Keurig 2.0 which we have or Keurig vue. Same problems you had fooled around with 4 or 5 of them ended up tossing the rest.
We have had ours for a long time actually this might be the second one really can't remember it was for peace keeping in the home between myself and my wife. We have entirely different tastes in coffee as I like strong coffee like french roast and she does not. I also never cared for coffee sitting in a pot for awhile ending up wasting it so the Keurig solved our problems. We have a refillable k cup but really don't use it for some reason to me anyway it just does not taste the same and again since we have completely different tastes in coffee would mean we would need to have a couple of bags around.
I buy my French Roast at Costco in goes on sale from time to time think I paid $29.95 the last time I bought it there. Its a little more environmentally friendly and we have a large Mason Jar that we keep it in. If you like strong coffee I hit the 10 oz setting and I don't need to hit the strong coffee button but that is preference.
