I am not a "Morning person" (me in the morning=) so copious amounts of coffee are essential for me to get my day started. I use a Mr. Coffee drip model (with built in timer) and it is over 5 years old with no problems. I have been so happy with it that I bought the same model for the MH.

I bought a small hamilton beach machine that uses the senseo pods. single serve and has an extremely small footprint. essentially a drip machine. since the heating element is so small, it only uses a few amps, not 15 like a big machine. stayed in a hotel that had one, so i bought one for the RV - about $20.

I also use the starbuck's via instant when I boondock. heat the kettle on the stove, so no power needed. very good coffee.

I use a technivorm because it is one of the few to brew at proper temperature.I think it is the best coffee maker on the market.I also roast my green coffe beans to get best coffee possible.

Ha! Francesca It appears that you're not a "Morning person" either! (Looks like you drink it by the gallon!)

My family knows to stay far, far away from me 'til I've had my morning coffee...and afternoon coffee...and evening coffee...

And doesn't everybody drink it by the gallon?

[QUOTE=Craig_R;1393757]This morning my Keurig B40 single cup coffee maker gave up the ghost. It lasted all of 6 months from brand new. Prior to that I was using a Black & Decker single cup brewer. It lasted a little more than 6 months before it went south also.

I have friends who called the Keurig company with the same tale and they sent them another. You might give them a call.

Once upon a time long ago, I too had a Keurig. Sadly it went to the trash pile. Been using a 4 cup drip Mr Coffee in the MH and it works great. Since the DW doesn't drink coffee, this little pot makes 2 king size morning cups for me. Packs away nicely in an overhead cabinet.

We use the Cuisenart drip at home, and in the motorhome. I also carry a small Corning Ware stovetop percolator pot for use when electricity is not available for any reason.

Our drip pot has a stainless steel thermal carafe so the brewed coffee isn't heated while waiting for us to drink it.

Sounds like my kind of coffee drinkers.

Well... I guess I must not be a "serious" coffee drinker. I drink mine black (have been ever since the military 45 years ago) and 2 cups (sometimes 3 cups) in the morning is just about all I and the wife too, want.....

Plugged in (<1/2 the time) Drip machine on a timer to have it ready when I get up.

Dry camping, either the good old perk method with a drip filter in the basket to keep the grounds down or heat water in the perk pot and pour through the drip filter into a thermal carafe.

Either way leave me alone 'till I have my coffee.

K-Cup x 4, Platinum edition in the MH and the S&B, and a single cup in the Condo and the industrial version in the office.

I am addicted to the K-Cup.
