Interesting. I wonder how well those new units will sell? Probably as good as their Vue model?

I never drank coffe until we got a Keurig 5 months ago. We have our own refillable pods and we love the HyVee cups which are a bargain. They switch to this DRM crap I won't buy it. I will find an alternative. When deciding one thing was the availability and variety of cups. Do I want to spend $6 on generic or $10 on name brand when it tastes the same? Heck no.

I think the time is getting closer to invest in a french press or an old stove top coffee pot. No more special filters or cups or fufu this or that. Back to just basic coffee with my favorite alcohol for creamer.-(P
