Keurig makes dirty water.
Just to add to the fun, I make my wife her coffee in this when we are camping. Pyrex 6 cup perculator
Water, water. H2O more important to me than the coffee bean. I will not drink the swill at my dad makes . it stinks, I would rather go without.He is used to the water so he sees no problem. He doesn't make sludge like he did in the past.
Our Bunn works great. It's the type the preheats the water and makes small 10 cups in about 2 minutes.Add just a sprinkle of salt in the grounds to kill bitterness. And sometimes I'll do my old trick and add touch sugar and cinnamon just for a richer black coffee.
We have the same/similar Bunn with the heated reservoir of water. Being the reservoir is uninsulated I always wonder how much power it requires to keep the water heated 24/7 for 1 maybe 2 pots a coffee per day?
We had one of those for years. Given that there are heating elements (not electronics or LEDs, but actual resistance heaters) running all day and all night 24/7/365, we began to suspect that the benefit of getting 10 cups of coffee finished in 2 minutes rather than 6 was probably not worth what we were paying in electricity for it, and I'm not sure what that was ....Lannis
I can still remember as a kid, waking up to the smell and sound of my mom's percolator in the kitchen. I can't stand these KEURIG coffee makers everyone has today, including my wife. I've tried every brand coffee pod imaginable, Starbucks, Dunkin, Green Mountain, on and on, they all taste awful. So I found a percolator just like the one my mom & dad had when I was a kid. A 1960's vintage Sunbeam percolator on ebay. Made in the good ol USA and still works like a charm. Good, drinkable coffee. Sure, the grounds are a little messy, but it is soooo much better that coffee from those little plastic pods!
