We use a Keurig 2.0 in the trailer and love it. We use the refillable cups and yuban North Pacific blend for a really good cup of coffee.

Keurig at home, in MH and in wife's office. Never had a problem.

Another downer for the Keurig, to me, is that it's always heating water. Unless you're drinking coffee all day long, that's a waste of energy. If you unplug it when you're done, then you might just as well get a Mr. Coffee and be done with it.

I have never been a fan of the keurig coffee makers or the coffee in the cups. Even if there isn't contaminants in the machine, what is it adding to your coffee from the steam interacting with the plastics and covers on the cups?
BTW a side note, distilled water seeks to balance itself and it draws minerals out of humans to do so. A Berkey water purifier cleans the water and in an emergency it can even purify lake/rain water.

I have a Hamilton beach electric kettle from Costco. Boiling water in 2-3 minutes. Capresso burr grinder & a french press for the best coffee. Make one mug or two.

It promotes world harmony as a bonus because I should never be left non caffeinated.

Depends on which Keurig. The single cup one makes one cup and shuts off, no stored water no being on all day. But only one cup can be a disadvantage but works for us, I drink coffee, DW drinks Tea. We just make one cup at a time when we want it. You can usually pick one up on sale for around $80 or sometimes less.

Both of my Keurigs have power switches. After it brews I hit the power button off.

We also carry an old style percolated pot for when we are dry camping. I can brew a pot on the gas stove when electric is unavailable or I don't want to crank the genny. Also works on the grill or campfire.

IMO the Mini Keurig is the perfect rv coffee maker for all the reasons stated above, ...If anybody's interested, I just did a search and found it at Best Buy for $59.99, many stores do price matching now if you prefer to buy from a local store and don't have BB close by, ...that's a very good price for a great small coffee maker,..........happy trailering with a great cup of joe in the morn.................(also includes a $15 Gift card)

Pulling plug = turning off switch

You've got an expensive Mr. Coffee.
