    Kerig Coffee Taste

    We just bought the Keurig B-60 single shot coffeemaker. Love the design, the ease of brewing. But my wife and I both think the coffee has a very unpleasant undertaste. We switched from tap to bottled water and tried several different kinds of cofee, but didn''t notice any difference We wonder if we may be getting a taste of residue from the plastic resevoir. Or maybe the machine just plan doesn''t make good coffee! Anyone else have this problem with Keurig?

    Depends on brand of K-Cup

    My wife and I have the same keurig model. Coffee that we pick up in the store have come out decent. The "samples" that were included in the machine did have a bit of an aftertaste, especially the dark roasts. These samples may be old. I still like the machine and in a hurry it makes a good brew.

    Do me a favor, if you can get your hands on a cheap manual drip cone, make some coffee with a decent brand and water just of the boil and compare it to the k-cup brew.

    My keurig machine is in disuse now and a cone manual drip maker I picked up for a couple bucks is now my maker of choice.

    You can buy a refillable k-cup filter for the Keurig which allows you to use fresh ground coffee of your choice. My personal favorite for brewing individual cups of coffee is the Finum filter:

    http://www.harney.com/permanentfilters.html I use the large one to brew 16oz of coffee in my travel mug or the small one in a 10-12oz mug.

    I used K-cups for about a year before I got serious. Never really noticed an undertaste. Always got the "extra bold" K-cups.

    Re: Kerig Coffee Taste

    What brand of coffee are you using for your Keurig? My favorite is Gloria Jeans. I have found that some of the Green Mountains are a little on the weird tasting side but they have one of the biggest selections to choose from. Although I do need to put in a shameless plug for their Golden French Toast k cup because it is unbelievable!!!! I would tell people not to judge the Keurig by the samples, because samples arn't guaranteed to be completely fresh. If you need any help finding a flavor that is a "perfect match" let me know. I am a hook line and sinker Keurig fan and I think it is God's gift to man kind lol It's even idiot proof which means its perfect for me lmao

    Also where are you getting your k cups from? Maybe we can compare place and see which place is best.... =]

    Re: Kerig Coffee Taste

    I love my Keurig. I got it on my birthday in December and I use it constantly. In fact I use it so much I started a blog at www.kcupblog.com. I usually buy my kcups at Target, but on my site you can buy them and get $10 off any $50 order.

    http://www.kcupblog.com/2010/01/check-o ... rig-store/

    Use Promo Code KCI and get $5 off your order of $30 or more. Use Promo Code bb to receive $10 off your order of $50 or more.

    Love the Coffee Forums!
