I love love love the Keurig coffeemaker. There are so many different kinds of coffees, teas, hot chocolate - even a setting for cold brewing. I love it that I can have 1 cup or 4 cups with so little effort. My only complaint is that I hate throwing away all of those plastic k-cups - wish they'd make them recyclable and then this machine would be perfect!!! I have one at home and one at school. So handy that I can have one cup of whatever kind of coffee that I want, and the next person can have something completely different. The other awesome thing about the Keurig is that there is little to no cleaning at all. Best purchase that I've made all year!
There is NO BETTER cup of coffee out there. This is always fresh, you get to have blueberry while your guests have kona, tea, pumpkin spice, whatever your, and your family/guests little hearts desire! All within seconds! and clean up: WHAT CLEANUP!!! This unit, of all of them is the best. I have two (home and office) I have purchased three additional as gifts and I can tell you, THIS one is THE one. AND, if you have any problems with your unit, call Keurig and they will do everything in their power to get your unit repaired or another unit. They are an amazing company! You cannot go wrong with this machine!
Christmas two years ago - gave one to every brother-in-law, a sister, a couple friends, and a daughter-in-law. This year, gave one to an all time great, expert, handyman who loved mine. K-cups too expensive? Not if you know how to use them; they CAN be used over. PLUS, you dump out old coffee? I NEVER have to. Also, want to mess around? The Keurig comes with a holder for your cheap coffee. Hate grounds and clean up, and your glass carafe looks murky? No grounds, no clean up, no soaking a burned carafe overnight in Cascade anymore. (THAT GET'S EXPENSIVE) Do you hate old, stale, bitter, afternoon coffee? Mine's fresh always. HOW LONG BEFORE YOUR FIRST CUP OF MORNING COFFEE? Prepare it the night before whille you're tired? - add 11 hours. Get carafe out of dishwasher, say "Ugh", fill pot reservoir - SPILL WATER ALL OVER - measure grounds - turn on - listen to it heat - wait while coffee slowly runs into pot - keep sticking cup under running coffee - get 1/4 cup really strong coffee - drink it any way - sigh - wipe up where you slopped both water and coffee - wait 'til dripping stops - lift carafe - put towel there just in case - pour coffee into your already used cup - remove towel - set carafe back under drip hole - sit down - sigh - husband pours his coffee - take a sip of yours - door opens - friends holler, "Any coffee?" - look at pot - oh no, not enough - take a gulp of your tepid coffee - get up and pour half cups - rinse carafe - push button to open coffee holder - forget to put paper towel under it - drip your way to garbage - empty grounds - paper liner sticks - dig out paper liner - throw in garbage - throw towel on drippy floor - STEP ON IT - rinse grounds holder - open cupboard - get clean liner - fit liner in grounds container - take coffee can down - open it, yay, spoon's in there - start spooning fresh grounds into holder - friend hollers, "Got any sugar?" - glare at wall - open cupboard - get sugar - take it to friend who remains seated - walk back to coffee maker - forget how much you put in - don't care - dump more in - shut grounds door - husband hollers, "Anymore coffee?" - think, "Up yours." - take carafe to sink - fill with fresh water - fill reservoir - spill water around - close reservoir lid - set carafe under drip spout - hit start - hear water heating - grab towel from floor - put floor towel in water around coffee maker on counter - start back to table - friend says, "Can't wait any longer; be late for work, can I just nuke your cold coffee?" - hands it to you - you walk to microwave - put your cold coffee in microwave - set timer for 7 hours - go back to bed - find your happy place - it smells like coffee. ACROSS TOWN - I get up - ablute - wash hands - go to kitchen - pop fresh, bold Sumatra K-cup in Keurig - close lid - push button- get milk from refrig - pour milk in done cup of coffee - grab cup gleefully - pour some Kahlua in it - sit down with paper - husband comes in - pops HIS favorite K-cup of TEA into Keurig - friends come in - holler, "Here for coffee and hot chocolate; don't get up." ha, lol - ignore friends - drink more coffee - Friend's husband pops decaf Espresso K-cup in Keurig - puts cup under spout - hits button - dumps 2 hazelnut creamers in while coffee is running - throws creamer containers in trash - grabs his cup and inhales deeply. Everyone chats - leaves - glance at Keurig and smile - no grounds, no half full carafe, happy friends, put sugar in cupboard - walk out. I BELIEVE MY BROTHER-IN-LAW SUMMED IT ALL UP WHEN HE SAID, "IF THIS THING BREAKS, WON'T MATTER, I'LL JUST IMMEDIATELY GO GET ANOTHER ONE; MAYBE I'LL GET A BACK UP - GOD BLESS CON AND FRESH COFFEE!!!" My other sister used to make a pot of decaf. Her husband drank 1/2 cup then drove 6 miles to 7-11 for regular. Hahahahahahaha

I bought a Hamilton Beach flex brew (to try to save some money) and after one week returned it to the store for nonperformance. It sputtered and kicked water and grounds all over the place. Then I ordered this online at overstock and had it within a week after ordering it. It pays to spend a little extra and get quality. The coffee is brewed within what seems like seconds, is hot, and there is no mess.
Bought this for a Christmas present for sister. Was easy to hookup. Clear visual and written directions. Coffee tastes great with no fuss ! Overstocks's price was good on this item too. Checked other sites and reviews before purchasing and the Keuring 65 seemed to be the best model to purchase. Very happy with it.
My son purchased this system a few months ago and the family loved it. So when Overstock had it at a great price, I decided to have one at my house as well. Great to make just one perfect cup on demand. I've tried for years to do just that, to no avail, always something wanting in the taste. Couldn't be happier to have my new brewing system.
These are awesome coffeemakers, love the speed of getting a cup of coffee in the morning! Onlly drawback is they don't last that long, this is my 2nd one.

The only reason I gave overall value a four star is because the products to be used with this machine are still over-priced for the average family. That said, my family loves the ease it has brought to the morning dash for hot chocolate and coffee. The style makes our counter top look futuristic and cool.
Terrific coffee maker! Would be cost prohibitive if you drink lots of coffee or tea, but if you drink a cup or two a day well worth it. It seems more hygienic than a coffee pot. An occasional wash of the reservoir and wipe of the pod cradle seems to be all you need to do.
Great system for multi-coffee drinkers. Wife only does Decaf, I do mostly regular. Not a good selection on the decaf for K-cups hope they pick it up. Very quite, our espresso machine is too loud so wakes the wife up in the morning. Definitely would recommend to a friend (both our kids have one alrealy)
