Let's Talk About the Price on these Single Serving Coffee Makers

But comparing to a classic espresso machine, these little discs you need to buy adds up quickly. Very quickly. So you will need to decide if the time you save is worth the cost and pollution factor (these little discs are producing more waste than a bag of coffee).
Keurig Single Serve Coffee Makers
This is the most affordable (under 100$) Keurig machine. If you plan on buying your first single serving coffee maker, there is no point in buying the most expensive, top of the line machine first. Especially if you are unsure your going to like it. You might be back to your drip coffee after all.
This one is cheap, designed for the K-Cups (when shopping, make sure you buy a Keurig that is actually made for K-Cups, some are just regular espresso machines) and offers a one year guarantee.
The size is attractive too for those having limited space. It measures 13-1/4 by 10 by 13 inches.
If you like your coffee quite strong, you will need to select the smaller size cup when brewing your coffee, otherwise it might be too weak for your taste.
Possibly one of the most interesting aspect of the Keurig single serving coffee makers: the My K-Cup. My K-Cup is a reusable filter that will allow you to use your own coffee and tea instead of the disposable K-Cups. It's economical, more friendly for the environment (that's the biggest selling point for me) and useful when you run out of K-Cups.
Amazon often offer it at a discounted price and you may end up paying less than on the official Keurig online store.
Tassimo Single Serve Coffee Makers
If you are using hard water, you may need to descale your single serving coffee maker on a regular basis to keep your machine making the best coffee cup possible.
