What's a good alternative to Keurig

Our Keurig duo just broke. This is the second one we've had (first one broke while still under warranty). I would like to hear some suggestions. Anything that will last longer, better quality, etc.? Or is this just the nature of these kinds of appliances?

Currently, I'm looking at this:

Pour overs are great, but they just take a little time and effort to make properly.
So for a long time I was buying Folgers coffee in teabag style for camping because it was so convenient.

I then came to the conclusion that unless you are going gourmet, two coffee bags in not quite boiling water beats drip and is so much easier than poor over. And instead of having a pot of coffee go old, each cup is fresh.

And doing fresh, okay coffee at home made me appreciate espresso drinks more on occasion when out.

But they disappeared from my local grocer.

Takes a long time for coffee to go old in a thermal coffee carafe. Especially when you make smaller batches.

Pour some hot water over that bitch straight into your cup. Tastes fine to me and barely any cleaning involved.

We’ve gone to a Simply Good maker, which is a knock off of the MoccaMaster. It’s great, but you can’t set a timer on it, which I disliked. We wake up at 4:45 to hit the gym by 5. I need a quick coffee ready quickly prior to my workout.

That’s where our Nespresso espresso maker comes in (the original not the newer one). We got hooked on these while staying at Airbnb’s in Italy and France. Decided to get one when we got home and we really like it. Great for “European” style coffee consumption where you drink several shots of espresso through the day vs. just a pot of coffee in the morning. We actually do that as well with the Simply Good. So best of both worlds.

I’d love to commit to a real espresso setup, but the cost is prohibitive. When I “retire” and work at home in the next 7 years, I’ll likely take that up as a hobby. It doesn’t make sense now, though working outside the house for most of the day.

This is the way.

Meh, we don't buy Keurig brand pods. We have found a couple that we like at Aldi. We both like the breakfast blend and I, personally, really like the Columbian one. They are about 0.37 per pod. Not that expensive for the convenience and speed. Also I have a smaller, cheaper Keurig at work.

We also buy the breakfast blend in grounds. But you guys have got me thinking that i need to go back to grinding beans. Not sure if they sell that in beans. We do have a local coffee shop that sells some amazing bourbon pecan beans. Might have to look into ordering online. Blackout coffee?

Are there really people who only have one cup of coffee?

I mean, if yer' a coffee snob and you're deep into all that stuff I get the whole having different flavors and types thing. Still, who only has one cup?

Good question. On weekdays (workdays) I generally have time for 1 cup while getting ready for work and then I grab one to take with me. Then, I make a 3rd cup at work.

I have had a Keurig for 6 years and never had an issue.

Almost any other coffee maker is better than a Keurig. But I prefer a French press. I may have gone a little overboard though, as I now have three of the things, small (1.5-2 cup) medium (3-4 cups) and large (6-8 cups).
