    Share them here.

    Just bought a Keurig for work. I seem to like Green Mountain's offerings, or anything dark and bold.

    So, what say you?

    Green Mountain is without question my favorite brand as a whole. I like the Hazelnut one the best. (I am a big fan of hazelnut coffees)


    While this isn't coffee/caffeine, the Spiced Apple by Grove Square is great for a hot drink on a cold day.

    Those who use the mesh use your own coffee k-cups... How's it work?

    Mine tends to taste weak when I use that.

    I like the Extra Bold ones. My favorite is probably Tully's House Blend followed very closely by Green Mountain's Sumatran Reserve and Newman's Own. Sam's Club sometimes has the Newman's Own in 80 count boxes for $40.00 which is about the cheapest way I know to get it.

    I think the fill your own k-cups are a PITA and defeat the whole purpose of the machine. I bought it because I want a good cup of coffee with no wait and no cleanup.

    I don't have a K cup system. I wish I did. There are so many flavors and options. I have the Vue, so I have to use the Vue cups. I think my favorite is The Original Donut Shop.

    Great suggestions! I almost bought the Sumatran and the Pike Place but settled on Green Mountain Pumpkin Spice. I'll give it a try tomorrow.

    Are the Starbucks flavorings pretty decent? Their Via stuff is pretty good.

    K is a bit big for me. I prefer a reasonable and tasteful D or DD cup at the most.

    I'm currently using Folgers but I also use Caribou.

    Next time I'm buy the Columbian flavor regardless of the brand name.

    I try to keep a small variety of flavors on hand for company.

    I think the trick is to not pack the coffee in the cup too tightly. That way the water travels through it and not over the top. I have had occasional weak cups and that seems to be the common element. It seems to work best when I fill it to about 3/8" from the top.

    Lately Mrs. Tiger and I have been using the self-fill cups just to save some money.
