Hope this topic isnt' too inane for this board!! I'm pretty much bordering on coffee snobbery and am in search of the perfect home brewed cup of joe! Do you prefer Keurig, a more conventional coffee maker, or something else and why?
I'm thinking that the Keurig would produce a fresher cup of coffee more consistently since you use a new, sealed K-cup each time and there are no/less issues with stale coffee buildup on the filter basket, etc. It seems more expensive, but the variety of K-cups is appealing especially changing things up each morning.
Then again, there's nothing quite like a fresh brew using freshly ground beans. But keeping the grinder and the filter basket clean is such a PITA!
