I have had a single-cup Keurig coffee maker for many years, at least 5, and I love the convenience and flexibility to have different flavors/types of hot drinks throughout the day. Since our original Keurig had some years on it, and since I wanted another K-cup machine for my workshop, I decided to buy a new replacement for our kitchen and move the original out to the workshop. While I will say that the new coffee maker works just fine, the quality in the product is not what I expected for a second, or third, generation machine. More plastic, less metal. And just as noisy as the original, if not louder. All this being said, I'll stick with it and see which one lasts the longest.
