Default How much coffee do K-Cups make?

I just got my wife a Keurig Special Edition coffee maker for XMAS and have been messing around with it... it allows you to make 3 different size cups from 5-9 oz, but the only thing we can't figure out is how many total ounces of coffee 1 K-Cup is good for? Can she make 3 9 oz cups out of one K-Cup? Directions don't mention how long one cup lasts... anyone with experience with these?

One time use really... but I go with a large cup and still tastes good. I actually have a 12 ounce coffee cup and run a smaller cup twice with one k-cup and its perfect coffee.

My Keurig has 5 settings, from an Espresso size to a large size. For my travel mug that I use every morning, I need one of the largest size, then run it again with the tea-cup size and it's just enough to fill the cup. I use the same k-cup and it comes out fine.

If I was making 2 separate cups of coffee, I would change k-cups in between.

I put a K-cup in and make the small one, then another Kcup and small again in my mug for work. Makes it stronger...I think.

I can brew 100% kono for half the price of the k-cup! That machine is pure genius! The best coffee maker, second only to a proper espresso machine

The cheapest I've seen was the 80 pack of donuts house coffee in costco for $30. Comes to ~37c/cup.

Depends how strong you like your coffee. For my travel mug in the morning I use the 8 oz followed by a 6 oz using the same cup (bold blend). At home a medium blend using the 10 oz once.

Make sure you clean out the needle with a paper clip after some use.

Well, each k-cup makes one cup of brownish colored water coffee analog.

Whether it constitutes coffee or not is up for debate.

Much, much better coffee can be had from a press pot (french press), for less money and less waste.

You cannot get "espresso" from one of these contraptions, no matter what the button says.

This makes espresso:

Yeah, but a good semi-auto espresso machine can set you back over a grand. I say that a keurig machine is a pretty good deal for under $100

Good Idea, I going to try that in the morning. Best price I have seen is at Costco. I have also seen some good pricing on line.

Depends on the type of K-Cup. We experimented today with flavors and sizes. The Donut House coffee was ok at 10, and a bit watery at 12. The french roast was good at 12.

I want to try using my own coffee as well...

Ah yeah....that thing sure looks purdy but the title of the thread was in regards to coffee but hopefully there will be one regarding expresso machines and then you can post your purdy pic again
