Interesting confirmation.  Every time I run across a Keurig demo in a 
store I try it.  And every time I end up dumping the coffee.  I am 
pretty tolerant too.  But no matter what kind I try (and I have tried 
some pods that claimed lighter / mellower roasts), it tastes 
AWFUL.  Bitter, too strong, acidic, YUK.

Good to note that the load your own pods don't make good coffee either.

We have been using a Mr. Coffee "Optimal Brew" for about a month and 
it is the first coffee maker that has actually made a noticeable (and 
positive) difference in the cup.  It advertises hotter and faster 
brewing and it accomplishes that.
