I use a basic drip at home. There are some great drip machines out there, but in the $10 - $100 range there is no real difference in taste, just features.Two of my three kids got a Keurig for Christmas. My daughter gave me her 4 cup Mr. Coffee drip coffee make since she got the Keurig. I couldn't be happier. I have graduated from the occasional cup of instant coffee to coffee every morning now. And the small size is just the right size for me.
