This is my third Keurig brewer. The first two I gave to family members who just loved the taste of the coffee. For years, it has always been a "hit or miss" as to whether or not I made a good pot of drip, perked, or inatant coffee. Usually, it was the latter. Now, with the Keurig Home Brewing System, every cup is wonderful, fresh brewed and tasty. I have a few friends who own this brewer also...we are all extremely happy with it.
