Keurig Plus Single Serve K-Mini Coffee Maker For RV prides itself on being one of the most user-friendly options available in its market. It has numerous features that would be incredibly beneficial to any coffee-drinking RV owner.
But the feature I find myself loving is its using process. You see this model has seamless button control, which makes finding the perfect setting is as easy as possible. It’s also beneficial that the initial setup has been proven to be remarkably simple.

That is a very odd review page.

Well as I said I had a el-cheapo one before and did not like it.
The one I got this week.. Well I've used it twice so far and yes it made a great cup of coffee.. Full up it's 24 ounces Nice. Good flavor, not the least bit bitter (using the same coffee I use in the auto-drip) way better.. Bit messier but this one is not that bad.

Since missus have problems with blood pressure she doesn't drink coffee anymore, and I switched to french press - but, well, to be honest I've never liked it as it never came out the same. The roast is the same, it's just me who couldn't master it.
So I swapped it for a single-serve coffeemaker (from Black+Decker, CM618) and it works well for me. It's not an option if you're going to make coffee for your guests (as it's just really small, one travel mug), still results are nice.

Much as I enjoy my 3 mug stovetop percolator, sometimes when off the grid I use the old broken electric drip that we replaced in the house years ago. I set the grinds in the basket as usual while heating a teapot of water on the stove and then pour it into the grinds. Takes about 2 minutes to pour over the grinds and flow into the decanter. I also disabled the “sneak a cup” spring valve on the bottom of the basket.

We use a big stainless steel percolator when we will be having a lot of coffee. When we know it is just going to be a few coffee mugs, then we use the french press.
French press is great, makes exceptionally flavorful coffee, but I always considered it a bit of a hassle to clean up.

To elevate the "HASSLE" simply tell Peggy she has a new job! Let me know how that goes.

I hate the mess of a French press. I also do not like the grounds that make it into the coffee past the press. On top of that I like more than one cup in the morning. Any extra coffee leftover in the press is too cold to drink so that means cleaning the press and making an additional cup, probably 3x in the morning. I will stick with the mellita and make a full thermos of coffee at once, then dump the filter paper and grounds.

Tried em all! Even gave our friends our $150 Keurig. This is simple, owned for 2-3 years now.

We've been very please with the effective and KISS design of this electric unit. I do recommend PSW inverter, if not on Shore Power. Great coffee, of course with fresh ground coffee[emoticon]!

We also have a stainless steel copper clad bottom Revele(SP?), it came from a set given to my parents on their wedding day back in the early 40's. We use it out around the campfire, while waiting to watch sunrises. And, it doubles as a last ditch emergency source of good coffee, in case of major coach problems[emoticon]!

May the perk be with you,
Smitty
