And... I have another new coffee maker - the Cuisinart single serve coffee maker - No Keurig this time!


This morning I finally had had enough.  You should not have to have anxiety when you want to brew a cup of coffee.  

As regular readers know, my latest Keurig liked to stop brewing after it made my cup of coffee, then wait a few seconds and as soon as I turn away, it would start to spew out more coffee and/or water (depending if the k-cup pod was still in it).  It would gladly give me another 12 ounces even if I opened the pod-holder - even if I physically removed the water reservoir!  I could hit the "POWER" button quickly to stop the flow but the second the power button was turned back on, it would finish peeing coffee/water all over the counter. 

This morning I removed the water reservoir, hit the power button and unplugged it.  I waited for the coffee to stop pouring out and then I left the house for about an hour.  Came home, decided to brew another cup.  When I plugged the machine back in (after being unplugged for an hour) it continued to finish giving me that 12 ounces it wanted so badly to give me this morning.

For the record, I brew all my coffee at 6 oz.  

It gives me my 6 oz. and stops.  Then starts up again a few seconds later with a brand new 12 oz. without me ever touching buttons.

Remember when I was researching coffee makers a couple months ago?  And I had two in mind, but because it was during COVID and there were a lot of shortages on appliances and other items worldwide, it was 'easy' to find Keurig (since they saturate the market) so I went with a Keurig.

Well... there are plenty of Cuisinarts available now!!!  I found them online at Amazon as well but didn't want to wait a couple days for delivery so I checked my local Bed, Bath & Beyond, saw they had them in stock and off to the store I went this morning!  I was there when they opened, I bought my coffee maker and was home and brewing my first cup within 30 minutes of purchase.


Pretty easy set-up. It has a couple things I LOVE that Keurig didn't offer - like the clock feature and the ability to program it 'on' and 'off'.  You can also program it to remember your favorite brewing size and heat setting so X-tra hot and 6 oz. is given to me automatically without me having to change it every morning like I did on Keurig.

I'm SO HAPPY I decided to go with Cuisinart this time.
