Does Keurig coffee come out hot and are there other coffee makers for 1-2 cups besides percolators and Keurigs?

      I’m changing the amount of coffee I drink and don’t like heating left-over coffee. I love my percolator since it keeps the beverage hot, but it’s a hassle to use it for 1 or 2 cups. I’ve never even considered a Kerig because it seems the cost of the pods would add up. What does anyone suggest? Does the coffee brewed in a Kerig come out “piping hot”- which is what I like. Any other suggestions? Thank you.

        You can get reuseable k cups and use regular coffee. They are not very expensive

          I use a French press. Keurig pods are not good for the environment.

            I’ve used a keruig for years. You can set the temp and it comes out pretty hot. The cost is similar considering how much I was dumping down the drain. I use Costco brand pods and they make ones that are compostable. My hubby and I work opposite shifts. So, we were making two pots a day and throwing a lot away.

              Get the reusable coffee pods, Walmart sells them. You can put your favorite ground coffee in them to make in the Keurig. Works great!

                Put your fresh coffee in thermos and it will be hot for a long while. Put large quantity of fresh coffee in glass jars in fridge and warm it up by the cupful and it will be good for a week.

                  I have a Hamilton Beach single cup coffee maker. It’s not very expensive, and you use your own ground coffee instead of pods which is cheaper and better for the environment. I think it comes out decently hot . I put creamer in it so it has to go in the microwave to warm it back up though.

                    A report I read compared coffee brewing, including percolator, k cups, French press, coffee machines, pour over, etc. They concluded the pour over method produced the best tasting coffee. I use a filter holder with a filter that I can brew directly into my cup.

                    Takes just a few minutes. Love the convenience. And less clutter on the countertop.

                      I’m not a fan of Keurig the pods were not strong enough for me. I prefer the pour over where I can control the strength.

                        I would do the French press or a pour over for 1-2 cups and use a kettle. Would be cheaper than k-cups, even the reusable. And an electric kettle boils water quickly.

                          I hated the Kereg. Coffee is horrible tasting and not good for environmental. The refillable baskets are a pain to clean. I do pour over, which I do camping, and tossed the kereg when I came home. I uses an electric tea kettle (jet boil while camping) to do pour-over coffee, tea, instant soups, and to start rice or miso soup. I uses bleach free cones, but some pour-over units have a screen, or glass pot.

                            I use a Moka Pot to make espresso-like strong coffee and cut it half & half with boiling water for American coffee. I use the leftovers for iced coffee, as it’s strong enough to stand up to the milk and cream and flavorings.

                            It’s a bit more work though. If you just want plain coffee, I’d go with the multiple suggestions of a French press

                              I’ve had a 4 pot Mr Coffee for years, can make half. I’m not a big coffee drinker, but seems to work for the rest of my crew. Had a Keurig, but it got gross and uncleanable, so we finally got rid of it

                                I have a Nespresso machine which is pretty costly, about 1.25 a pod. But I also have a little pour over thing which is awesome. I’ve cut back to only 1 cup of coffee a day and both these methods work really well for me. I don’t love the taste of the keurig pods, it’s never really strong enough taste for me to.
