The cafe delights are pretty good because you don't have to add sugar or cream.

I got some of these but it suggest "for best quality" that you make the small cup (8oz or whatever). WTF is that BS? And when I made a big cup it was watered down as shite.

I got a Keurig for Christmas and have been extremely unimpressed.

How is this relevant to the conversation? Dark roast coffees have less caffeine than medium roasts.

Community Dark Roast is "way better" than any K-cup. WTF has "better" got to do with caffeine (although it needs some)?

I was simply trying to clarify what you were getting at.

I think what he is saying is if you want a stronger cup of coffee then you can't make a large cup of coffee. No matter what size cup of coffee you make, the same amount of coffee grounds will be used.


Ok, that makes more sense. I can buy that.

U sure sound mad.

Why do you hate k-cups so much?

When I drink coffee at my house, I use k-cups and its delicious.

When I stay at my girlfriend's house, I brew coffee (or i should say, she does ) and its delicious.

No noticeable difference in taste or jolt of caffeine. You're really splitting hairs here.

Any coffee is better than Keurig.

Do it properly. Grind your own beans and use a real brewer that hits 200 degrees or more with distilled water.

Or if you really feel daring, do a French press.

Keurig is for people who don't know what coffee tastes like. They probably like hazelnut, cream and sugar b/c they don't know good coffee doesn't need any of that crap in it.

Yet people want to brag about drinking the darkest tar available like its a sign of manliness. We've all seen it here.

But I like some k-cups.

Overrated. My girlfriend has one and we use her brewer instead of it. You sound like a snob. You probably also make fun of people for what beer they drink.

I disagree. K-Cups are not delicious .. the regular ones are bland and weak and the flavored ones are fricking atrocious tasting.

And the reason for my vitriol is there are some things in life that I take seriously and think should held in high standards, and I don't like seeing them being co-opted by corporate America offering people shortcuts and convenience for the sake of quality while sticking their collective hands in our pockets.

I have a breville keurig machine that will make store coffee taste like syrup. But I also use the little pod it came with and put espresso roast coffee in it. The Kcups arent bad though. Maybe the OP has a walmart brand keurig

I use a Keurig and I know what coffee tastes like. I drink it black. Sure, I have had and appreciate fresh roasted and ground coffee and used to use a small french-press for my daily fix...when I was in school and could dick off in the morning. Now a couple cups in a minute of what is pretty damn good coffee is just fine.

My experience has been that the majority of people who drink Keurig (at least the ones I've been around) always go for the flavored options.

They also use this fricking nonsense:
