Keurig B70 coffee machine

At $180 my wife simply had to have one of these machines. Damn....it sure makes a nice cup of coffee. But so does my aeropress at a tenth of the cost while using a forth less coffee. Blondes....you either hate them or love them. Mine is hard headed but I still love her.

At least it's something you can both use........she could have bought a $180 dollar pair of shoes which you couldn't use unless you have small feet and are into that sort of thing.

Hey, speak for yourself!

All kidding aside, I've been looking at one of those machines for about a year but finally decided to just stick with the Mr. Coffee. I suppose I'm missing out on some of the finer things in life, but I realized that when it comes to coffee and beer, I pretty much just drink them for the effect rather than the overall experience.

Shoes? Hell, what about purses? It never ends. The only good thing about those "collections" is that they're good bargaining chips, readily on display in the closet, when I'm met with resistance about buying some doodad for the KLR or some new riding gear. So, I suppose they serve a purpose after all.

I'm on the other end of the spectrum.. I have a one cup coffee maker. It's just a filter holder that you put over the empty cup.. I have a gold filter and I toss in a handful of whatever I want, pour boiling water over it, and I have a cup of coffee..

And when it comes to beer, I have some favorites and tend to just buy a 6 pack at a time, enjoying a beer when I wish.. It's not some foofoo ceremony with coffee or beer, it's just that I don't drink much of either and when I do, I want it to be really flavorful..

Yeah, I'll occasionally indulge on a weekend with a couple buddies and make a couple 30 packs of Busch Light disappear, but it's rare.. I don't like headaches..

Losing position in my house. My wife always finds sales, she'll brag about buying a pair of shoes for $20, purse for $15, top $6, etc.

I can't compete, the new guitar I want is $2K, new bike $10k, revolver $500, the list goes on.

I learned early on not to bargain!

My mom and dad got one of those Keurig's for Xmas... It does make good coffee! The little K cup things are sure pricey though. I'm a cheapo so I usually just drink instant.

It's a quote I use in a variety of situations (with appropriate modification).
"The most expensive coffee machine is cheaper than the cheapest divorce."
My original quote was:
"The most expensive bicycle is 1/10th the price of the cheapest open heart surgery."
In the interest of full disclosure, I have an espresso machine at home and one at work (sticks out like a sore thumb on an Air Force base). When I fly we keep it pretty basic, I use finely ground coffee and boiling water in a cup, let it steep for a few minutes and pour it through one of those little cone filter holders designed to go over a cup. When my grandparents were still alive, Grandma always used a two-stage stovetop perculator (made from pyrex), but that was to "new-fangled" for Grandpa who used an enamel pot, a handful of coffee and a couple crushed egg shells. Smelled like hell, but wasn't as bad as most restraunt coffee.

Another Aeropress enthusiast, but I am also very partial to using coffee I've freshly roasted.
