I know it's a rant. So be it.
I put my Folger's Simply Smooth in the K-cup - most delicious coffee I've ever had!

And we got some of those ground coffee packets for christmas and dump those in the K-cup too.

Works pretty well

We use a 4 cup drip with a stainless steel carafe when we have electricity...if no electrical, then a french press with hot water from the propane stove. No Starbucks for us if there is a choice...... Cravens roast (Earth and Sky) is my all time favorite....dark, rich, smooth with no after taste. LOL

Congratulations on your new unit! I love coffee too, the fresher the better!

I would recommend getting a kerug only if you get the single water serving kind. The one's with a water reservoir tend to attract water ants and other bugs. More than once I've found things floating at the top.

Something that can be really good, though more time consuming, is the French Press. You get a lot more flavor and it's a bit stronger. You just need hot water, a french press ($20) and Coffee Grounds for a french press. Most coffee shops and grinders give you this options if they are good. You just have to make sure the grind is big enough. I know, it may sound complicated, but actually it's not that bad!

There's a lot of shorter mugs out there, I wanted stainless steel though so I checked Amazon. It's been awhile since I ordered my mug, but I think this is the one that works for me:
Amazon.com: Trudeau Donoti Desk Mug, Satin Finish: Kitchen & Dining

If you ever camp off the grid- No hookups you'll want a stove top
percolator. You can get fancy stainless one's or cheap aluminum in the
camping isle of your favorite mega store or sporting goods store.
Some have to have the "log cabin" blue speckled enamel but to me it all tastes the same!

It's amazing that some folks (youngsters) have never heard of a stove top
percolator

This item can come in handy at home too, imagine ice storm, blizzard, power outage.

Same here, I'm the only coffee drinker, but they like the Spice Apple Cider. I have one at home. My wife bought one for me to use in the motorhome through Kohl's when Keurig had the rebates back in October. By the time she was done with 30% off, $35 rebate, $10 Kohl's Cash for each $50 spent, Free Shipping to the house and a seperate box of Donut Shoppe Coffee. She paid $48 for the machine that retails for $189. Usually can be found for $149 at most retailers. Too cheap to pass up.
