Some of them are not too bad. They're all fairly one-dimensional and not too exciting, but drinkable. I forget which ones I like. We only ever have Dark Magic and Breakfast Blend from Green Mountain. I'd stay away from the Breakfast Blend. I remember the Caribou Coffee cups to be OK, but it's been a while since I've had those.
I generally clean out everything I can before I brew a cup. Sometimes the residue in the machine is enough to ruin a cup.

At work we have some columbian that is drinkable. Breakfast blend slightly less so, and for me at least the Dark Magic was pretty rough. For me it is a thermos of coffee from home and if I am desperate I make tea in the machine. Most of the k-cups are "drinkable" and better than typical bunn made office swill IMHO

When we stay at the navy base, visiting our son, they have the Keurig makers in the rooms. While my experience is limited to the different "flavors" offered, the regular coffee is drinkable. Not good or close to great but drinkable enough that I don't pack my tea kettle, Aeropress and Solis 166 grinder anymore.
For hotel coffee, it is OK but not something I want to drink every day.

I chew coffee beans with my teeth while gargling with 195 F water to enjoy coffee. What is this "coffee brewing" device you speak of?
