OK. I understand the convenience of the Keurigs and I wouldn't consider myself as cheap. But for the cost of 1 Keurig CUP I can brew 2 POTS with super premium coffee's like Jamaica Blue Mtn ($30 - $50 a lb) or Kona Peaberry Reserve ($30 - $45 a lb).

Unless the costs have come down since I gave the Keurigs a look last year ... they are insanely expensive at a per cup basis. I was looking at a nice Sumatran (my daily brew of choice) which was $18.00 for a 12 pack of K cups. That's $3.00 more than a whole pound of beans.

I know (and have been told ) that I am not the brightest bulb on the string, so please tell me...Am I missing something?

Thanks!

We use a standard drip coffee maker. One of the highlights of every trip is sitting by the fire early in the a.m. and sipping our coffee.

I order my cups online and get them for about .43 each for specialty coffee. My everyday brew costs about .32. It's still probably more than brewing a pot, but every cup tastes the same.

We buy our K-cups at Costco and Sam's Club and they run about .35 to .40 a cup. Target and WalMart always have a good selection at fair prices. I too am cheap, but there is nothing like a "fresh" brewed cup every time, sorta like the first cup out of the pot...

There's also a filter that works in the Kuerig in which you can use your bulk coffee and therefore save a bundle.

We order bulk K-cups from Amazon and use the filters for when we want to grind our own. Both cut down the cost of the Kuerig.

Plus, we weren't always finishing a pot of coffee with the Moccamaster, either because it was too much or it had gone luke-warm in the pot so the cost difference was not necessarily that great for us (unless each and every pot was finished).

Ok that's a little more reasonable and would make the convenience worth the cost.

I had seen the little filters as well but that kinda defeats the convenience aspect of the system. At least in my mind.

Thanks to you both for responding...I'll look into them again.

These little cups for the Keurig are a bit pricy if you just buy and don't price shop, but I've found I can get a big cup and then re brew for the second cup from the same little container. Works well and the taste is about the same, therefore I think I'm getting a deal.. Maybe I'm that other dull light in the string. whatever works huh!

Finishing a pot isn't a problem for us LOL unless we brew a 2nd...then there might be a cup or two unused.

Thanks for responding! I will look at them again.

I have a Keurig at home, and also have an "Ecocup" which you can use with your ground coffee of choice or tea.

Now, for camping, my husband and I aren't huge coffee drinkers. More Bailey's, less coffee. But we inherited an old percolator with our first camper and enjoy using it. Part of the experience.
