    Get a "My K-Cup", it is basically a pod sized metal mesh filter that you can put any grounds into you'd like and just rinse out and re-use. It comes with the Keurig if you get it from Costco or Sam's or similar, or they're like $8 on amazon.

    what gets mookie here is cream doesn't exist. NO PLACE has cream to add. mookie's hotel where he eats breakfast every morning is hot milk, hot skimmed milk, or cold milk to add.

    no cream either at the starbucks at work.

    weird.....

    People who drink their first cup of coffee cold cannot be trusted.

    This, I drink one cup first thing in morning, its perfect for me. Not a coffee snob so I don't care if its not great. I had a coffee salesman tell me flat out, if you are used to drinking a particular brand of coffee, everything else tastes bad.

    Keurig coffee is convenient - I stay at a lot of Hilton Garden Inns and they have a contract to put a Keurig machine in every room. However, the coffee it makes is not very good if you're a coffee snob like me. I personally think it's just an overpriced caffeine dispenser.

    My K-Cup. Use whatever coffee you want, way cheaper then k-cups, no waste.

    There's another legal term other than pedophilia. It's like saying it's not murder but manslaughter.

    Both are reprehensible.

    And in some states you can marry a 14 year old with parent's permission. (Shudder). And if you then take your child bride to a different state where you would be locked up for having sexual relations with a 14 yr old, you're OK, as when you're legally married in Alabama,you're legally married in the rest of the US. (Shudders).

    As long as she is OK, and there is no evidence of coercion or abuse, it's may make us uncomfortable, but we're not harmed by it.

    Also, a lot of these people being polled think being accused of something by the media is a badge of honor.

    I don’t know if I would ever own a Keurig. But I use the one at work when I forget my coffee.

    Personally, I've been just fine with my $20 Mr. Coffee. The pennies wasted pitching a couple extra ounces of brewed coffee outweigh the horse**** "benefits" a Keurig has.
    Personally, I'd take that leftover coffee and make coffee ice cubes.

    But in my apartment, there is never leftover coffee.
