Ditto in our trailer. We have the mini and there are no issues. We leave it in the trailer and have done so for 2 years. It is great to have.

When we first got our coach we went looking for an electric coffee maker since we would run the generator for the residential fridge. They were all so big and hard to store until we came up the Hamilton Beach single cup. Doesn't hold much residual water and was small enough to put under the sink.


Something like $35.00. Since then we have bought 2 more for our stick homes. Always fresh coffee, no K-Cup hassle, simply use ground coffee. Makes a great cup that is always fresh and doesn't take up half of the galley storage.You can use regular coffee cups or travel mugs.

I like that. Cheaper to operate too. Those K-cups are not cheap.

Why would any sane person want to spend 50 cents for one cup when for the same 50 cents you can brew 12 cups? I just dont get it????

Cause I only have two cups of coffee a day and the DW doesn't drink coffee.

And I like having a variety of different brands/types of coffee. That's what drew me to the Keurig.
I don't like drinking the same brand/type of coffee every day.
With the Keurig, I can mix it up.

Plus there's virtually nothing to clean up. No filters to deal with, no measuring coffee, no wet grounds to dump and nothing to rinse out.

Agree and in addition, I'm an earlier riser than the DW and there's no need of her getting up and drinking 2 hour old coffee in the carafe.

We too have the mini keurig and never had issues storing it in the 5er through the last 4 winters.
One thing I didn't see mentioned, it has such a short cord on it. I had to put in an outlet by the stove for it. It was a win win because it gave us a plug for the toaster oven when we need it. All my other plugs are under cabinet so the first time we used it I had to stack boxes under it just to plug it in. Now it's a permanent fixture on the countertop.
Also my wife drinks flavored coffees and I don't so the individual cups work perfect for us.

I had one for several years...loved it..but it died recently. Now I have to go find it again..Wally world had them but only certain ones. I KNEW I should have bought a backup.

I use a pour over brewer which gives a better cup of coffee as I also roast my own beans. That gets the other seasonals wondering what the ehck is going on. But sometimes I don't want to stand for two minutes pouring slowly...especially when someone else wants a cup, then I really don't want to stand for two minutes and pour brew theirs!!
