Comparing the Cuisinart and Keurig coffee makers this morning.............

It's morning time! And it's Monday!

Coffee Talk:  This morning my first cup of coffee was brewed in the Cuisinart coffeemaker as is my usual since it's the one I have in the office.  The second cup I brewed in the Keurig in the kitchen as I was in there checking on some things before heading back to the office.

The difference in the coffee brewed is crazy.

I think I've mentioned this before in bits and pieces but just to have it one place here's the deal....

The coffee is the exact same brand of k-cups.  Both are single cup brewers.  One is the Cuisinart and one is a Keurig.  Both brewed at the same size.  All of this 'obvious' but stated because there's always 'that person' who will ask "was it the same brand coffee?" or something similar.  Yes.  Everything's the same. Blah blah.

The Cuisinart takes twice the time to brew.  A slower brew time and much louder.  Sometimes when the husband is sleeping and I'm brewing in the early morning, I put my hands on the machine to try to 'quiet' it and muffle the noise... LOL.  It's loud.  I knew this when I bought it though as other reviewers mentioned it.

It also makes a really good tasting cup of coffee.  Nice and smooth.

The Keurig is quieter and faster!  Much faster and quiet enough I don't have to worry about it sounding like a small train waking my husband.  But also... stronger tasting.  

Seriously (this is what prompted this quick fly-by post) it tastes like I just made a completely different brand and style of coffee.  The difference in the taste blows me away.  It's darker, stronger and hotter but not as... smooth as the Cuisinart.

And the part about it being hotter?  MUCH hotter.  I'm a 'hot' coffee drinker.  And there is no doubt that Keurig blows the Cuisinart away in brew temperature.

Both good machines but I do get a completely different cup of coffee from each of them... using the exact same k-cup coffee.


The end.  Gotta run - I'm about 4 minutes late!
