I would only use a descaler every year or so. Our water here in BC is quite neutral so there shouldn't really be a need to descale.

The descaler solution is quite acidic and damages machine if used too often.

Doesn't it indicate when descaling is required? I've had mine for over 1.5 years and has yet to flash the descaling light yet.

Few new flavors I'm guessing for the holiday season for tassimo.

Pumpkin spice latte: tastes like a watered down version of McDonalds (which tastes pretty watery itself).
Peppermint mocha: I like this one quite a bit.

Also saw a chai tea which I didn't buy

chai tea latte is a standard flavour unless it's a different type?

watered down pumpkin might not be bad as mcd's is a little on the sweet side for me. either way will consider trying them both, thanks

try using filtered or bottled water, should reduce the scaling

The Keurig Elite is going for 79 bucks just about everywhere. I bought one yesterday at Walmart and they have the updated one with three cup sizes, even though the picture on the box has only two. Make sure you open the box and check that you've got the newer model.

I love the Keurig, because I can just get a cup of hot water for my miso soup, instant coffee, tea, whathaveyou. I love hot water over cold rice. No bar codes to mess with.

If you want a single cup and don't mind the extra wait, Walmart has the mini Keurig for 59 bucks. It's cute and has a small footprint. Has drawbacks, but for a dorm, it's good.

My wife bought us a Keurig (Cuisinart) machine about 3 months back, I've tried probably more then a dozen different coffees and I haven't really liked any of them. I prefer my regular old coffee pot but the for convenience it's good. Maybe it's because I'm use to a certain type of coffee but I prefer old fashion brewed coffee to the Keurig machine.

Forgot to mention........

If you register your Keurig, you get a promo code via e-mail for a buy two, get two free deal. You choose 4 boxes and when checking out, you put in the code. Shipping is free for all orders over 45 bucks, I think. EDIT: 45 bucks for US site and 69 bucks for Canadian site (see below).

Also, Costco has their Keurig Platinum brewer on sale until the 27th of this month. $25.00 off - manufacturer discount. Comes with 60 free cups! Plus, the Keurig, fill your own coffee filter cup thingy.

Keurig® Platinum Single Cup Coffee Brewing System

EDIT: Just found out that there is a keurig.ca site and a keurig.com site. I ordered my stuff from the .com (USA) site. Way more varieties to choose from. However, they charge you 9.95 brokerage fees along with pst and gst (came out to just over a dollar for both taxes). Anyhow, if you order from the Canadian site, the stuff costs more, so in the long run, I decided to go the US .com site. Got a bonus sample pack, to boot.

On top of this, I don't think the promo code works on the Canadian site. Canadian site = major FAIL!

Costco.ca has Keurig Platinum for $40 off, making it $119.99. Not a bad deal as it comes with some coffee and the reusable cup. How's that for a thread bump?

I've tried probably 10-15 different tassimo brews

IMO the only one worth it is the straight espresso, the rest can barely be called coffee IMO

I've tried many different Tassimos.
My favorite is still the cafe crema.
Best place to buy espressos are staples - I see those 16x nabob tassimo disks for like $5.

...........also instant coffee, green tea, miso soup, soup mix, hot chocolate, plain hot water for cold rice, the list goes on. My family uses it so much, I think I will get the Keurig permanently hooked up to a water supply, LOL.


Also, I was at Costco this evening and the Platinum Brewer is on sale at Costco locations, not just on-line. The kit comes with 60 kcups, so it's really a good deal.
