The mere mention of owning a Keurig coffee brewer makes hard-core frugalists hiss and invoke the holy grail of owning a French press.

However, there are several reasons why I prefer my little red Keurig Mini over a traditional coffee maker. First of all, it's red, so it matches the kitchen decor. Secondly, it's little, and will fit under the low-hung cabinets in our kitchen without taking up much space on the scanty amount of counter top we have. And lastly, I drink only two cups of coffee a day and cannot find a coffee maker, not even a 4-cup Mr. Coffee Junior, that makes that small of a pot taste good. Also, I do not like French press coffee, as I've yet to have a cup of it that didn't have sludge in the bottom.

Plus, the kitchen has granite counter tops and a slate floor. A glass coffee carafe lasts about two months tops in my kitchen before I drop it and it shatters to kingdom come. So a Keurig it is for me.
