    all depends upon how you make it. some ways (k-cups, etc) make it kind of thin and weak to me. french press and chemex are my favorite ways: the coffee comes out thick and strong and not bitter. i would use an old fashioned stove percolator if i could find a graniteware pot. and then there is turkish coffee which is almost not coffee at all.

    I've recently become a daily coffee drinker again. Been contemplating a Keurig.

    I have a mister coffee that gives me a choice of a whole pot or one cup at a time.

    its ok, but the choice of kcups is crucial. there are a lot of really crap brands out there. and there are some really fine ones. i hate to say it, but Emeril Legasse(?) brand has been pretty good but expensive. amazon has the best pricing i've found so far.

    I have a Keurig. There are several K-cups available with that thick, rich flavor you're looking for. "Dark Magic" is one of my faves. However I rarely use K-cups. They're expensive, wasteful and I don't like the idea of cooking that plastic with my coffee.
    I use the little baskets, and yes if you put regular coffee in them, it's too weak. I buy ground espresso or dark/bold varieties of higher-end ground, bagged coffee. And it's perfect.

    I love my Keurig.
    I'll never again own a conventional coffee maker.



    ...maybe for entertaining or something, where I need a large amount.
