Detailed Commentary

I may not be an uber-geek with regard to coffee, but I do fall squarely into the beginner snob category. The very idea of drinking coffee made from grounds originating from a latge metal can send shivers down my spine. I never would have thought that single cup makers were any good, but I was intrigued when Starbucks and Tully's both picked sides in the single cup war.

Long story short, my wife ordered a Kuerig B60 from QVC a couple of months ago and I was plesantly surprised when it arrived. The machine is easy on the eyes, and fits comfortably in most kitchens. Operation in simplicity itself: fill the tank with water, open the 'breech' and load a K-cup, close the breach and press start. 30 seconds later, one perfectly brewed cup of joe.  And when I say perfectly brewed, that's what I mean. This is easily the best coffee I've ever had (and I've enjoyed coffee all over the world)...it's alsmost too good. I doubt it'd be possible to cram any more essence or flavor into each of those little demon-spawn cups from hell...and that leads us the down points. They really need to post a warning on the box, or sell the K-cups from street corners or something...anything to advertise that you'll more than likely need to mortgage your house or sell a kidney to keep your habit up. My personal consumption has gone up probably 50% since I bought this damned thing. I even purchased a B70 for the office so I could keep myself 'fixed' throughout the day. The coffee retails for $14.00 a box of 24 or 25 from Keurig. There are well over a hundred varieties of coffee and tea, and so far I haven't had a bad cup of anything that I would normally like. The foo-foo flavored coffees are fine, I'm sure, but I don't drink them, so I don't really know.
