    What are your favorite K cups? I'm digging the Barista Italian Roast right now. It's usually $10 a pack but they had it on sale with one of those coupon spit out things, so I got them for $6. I will be very sad when they go off sale.

      Donut Shop.  Sweet heaven in a cup!

      Do you even run?

        I am cheap so we do the Tully's that Costco carries and the Decaf you can get from Costco.com.  Over the holidays we were visiting someone who had Kirckland brand k cups.  I can't wait for our Costco to get those.  They were good and even cheaper yet.

          I had that in my freebie pack, but they don't have it at my grocer. Alas!

           

          Chloey, no Costco around here, but my friend says Sam's Club has them.

            We are even cheaper - we have a reusable K-cup, and buy coffee grounds.

             

            I don't drink much coffee, just tea, so I have basically started using it as a quick way to brew a cup of hot water on top of a tea bag.

             

            I don't think we've bought any K-cups in over a year now.

              I have one of those cmb, but the only time I used it so far it came out terrible. I used hand ground beans and I think the grind was too coarse.

                You can get it at Bed Bath and Beyond, and use a 20% off coupon.  Or you can sign up for the delivery service.  It's pretty reasonable in relation to buying them at the store, and if you order enough at a time, you can get free shipping.

                Do you even run?

                  That is very possible.  My husband buys his coffee at a local chain here, and he told them he had the Keurig mesh thing, and they ground it accordingly.  They grind it pretty fine, and he packs it in there pretty good to get a strong enough cup.  The K-cups generally aren't strong enough for him, so he likes doing it this way.

                    The Golden French Toast and Wild Mountain Blueberry are my favoritest . Lately I've been using the reusable k cup. I found a Michigan Cherry flavored coffee at Meijer that's really good too.

                        This is what I do too.  Those cups are expensive and I get a really nice cup of coffee (dark!!) with my reusable one.

                            Donut Shop.  Sweet heaven in a cup!

                             

                            I jut gotta say, I ain't feelin the donut shop.  If you look on amazon, donut shop has the single largest following of any kcup in the whole line of kcups.....but.......it just doesn't do anything for me.

                             

                            Now, the following are some seriously good coffees IMHO.......

                             

                            Green mountain extra bold

                            GM Nantucket

                            Kahlua

                            GM Caramel vanilla

                            Gloria jeans hazelnut

                            Tully's house blend

                            Even the GM Newman's Bold is good and I'm not usually a fan of hard/strong coffee.

                             

                            Donuts shop, breakfast blend and all those other light (brown water) brews just taste like......well.......brown water! (to me)

                             

                            If I had to do with just one........it would probably be Nantucket.  It's just a little different than plain Jane coffee, not too strong, not too weak and flavorful enough to make me smile.

                             

                            I'd probably die if I never had another cup of flavored coffee, but if it really had to be just one, Nantucket owns. Cool

                                Ditto.  If we buy cups, it's usually Donut Shop.
