K-Cups, a Keurig B70 Brewer and Harmony in our Kitchen
OK, not exactly espresso, but hey you have to experiment every now and then, right. A perk of being the sister site to SingleServeCoffee.com is that you get to exchange ideas and coffee machines every now and then. We’ve got a Keurig B70 brewer in our kitchen right now, and that allows us to choose anything between a lightly roasted K-cup all the way to a potent espresso, at any time, which has brought harmony to our kitchen. My wife, who appreciates lighter roasted coffee more than I do, appreciates the options available now that a few boxes of K-cups can bring.
The Keurig B70 has pushed aside our drip coffee maker, has made life a little better and has single serve coffee ready to brew from the moment I step in the kitchen in the morning. I programmed the B70 to be on and pre-heated, ready for me to drop a single brewing K-cup into it the minute I hit the kitchen. In pretty short order I can have a cup of coffee waiting for me in the morning. The sun isn’t rising here as early, and the funky blue light that lights up the water tank on this machine gives a cool futuristic glow to the kitchen when I walk in. So, I like the idea of the brewer, I am not so sure of the lighter roasted stuff that we have on hand so now I want to find my coffee.
I have decided to get my hands on a few K-cups myself, and see what they are like. I’ll give you my opinion from an espresso lover’s point of view. The varieties I am testing are: Lake and Lodge, Organic Sumatran Extra Bold, and Timothy’s Rain Forest Espresso.
These K-Cups are sold though Amazon.com and at Green Mountain Coffee.

Thanks for the recos. I have all the ones you mention on order: Sumatran, Rainforest, Lake and Lodge, but not French Roast. We'll see with them then if you aren't impressed. I know coming off some strong shots from the Impressa E8, I'll be taking a few steps down in strength. I will also try the lower cup size setting.
If you haven't tried the Green Mountain French Roast it is great, 5.5 oz of water.
Have tried the Sumatran, it is good.
Not impressed with the Rainforest or Lake and Lodge.
The great thing about the Keurig coffee makers is no more fighting about coffee strength! Everyone can make it the way they like it.
Love my machine!
