Keurigs are great, but you must use distilled water. My water was so mineralized that I had to always use distilled water.

You do have to clean them once in awhile, depends on how much you use it. My husband said that if it take more than 2 minutes to brew it's time to get the vinegar out!!!

If your Keurig is under one year old, contact the company....they will replace it. As for flavorings, I buy Dunkin' Donuts French vanilla coffee and use half a little keurig cup of that and half of my regular Folgers....delicious! I find using flavored coffees full strength is just too much, too strong.

Put a little cayenne in the cocoa mix--adds a new zing.

Since I love the Star Bucks Christmas Blend so I use the personal cup for it. I also use the little filters because it seems the grounds get thru in it and I greatly dislike grounds in my coffee. I also like using my Keurig for tea, hot and iced tea. I love the personal k-cup for that.

I have had a Kuerig for years. I used to use the refillable pods. Until I found a different item at Meijers. It is a small mesh bag or pouch attached to a silicone ring. You put coffee in the mesh and set ring on mug. Dispense water from Kuerig. Remove the filter and dump and rinse. No lids to break off. Will hold any amount of coffee or whatever you want. Works great for loose tea too.

I have refilled my pods for years. I purchase my refill supplies from my-cap.com They have the disposable pods, filters, and caps. I reuse the pods several times before I replace it with a new one. (they usually come 100 in a pack)
The caps are made of hard plastic and will last for years. Check out the videos on you tube. I like the idea of adding pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon to the coffee - I never thought of that.
Yesterday at HyVee I purchased a box of Gevalia Caramel Macchiato K-Cups and it is delicious! It even makes the frothy top. I also purchased a French Vanilla Cappuccino and was pleased with that one too.

Hi there. I'm visiting and saw your post. I will have to send you some flavors to try. It can be coffee and just flavored.
No creme needed or other additions. I have a Kuerig as well and now I saw one that has a carafe attached for larger portions and they come with the larger refills. I too like to fill up the refillable ones with coffees my quilting sisters send me in flavors from all over. Ksea sent me Cherry Pie from Michigan...yummers.
Always enjoy my coffee.......

I did the research on the Keurig 2.0 (the one that comes with the carafe) and you will not be able to refill your own coffee. I guess that I will wait until they make cups that you can refill before I purchase this maker
