Keurig's "K cups too bold/strong for my taste"
I asked for a Keurig mini brewer for Christmas and the machine works well. However I'm really disappointed with it because of how strong all of the coffee tastes, regardless of the brand or blend/flavor.
The problem is that I do not lIke strong coffee. For example, I think Starbucks coffee is too bold regardless of the type. I guess I'm not a purist, but even the K-cups that are flavored taste so strong I can barely drink them.
Perhaps it is because the largest cup size you can use with the mini is a 10-oz cup. Because some Keurig owners must be like me, I wonder if anything can be done to make the brew milder short of diluting the brewed cup.
My sister-in-law told me she had one at work and they used to brew two separate cups using the same k cup so that the second cup would be milder. I made her some coffe with my new Keurig and she didn't finish it (and she said she liked bold coffee).
For those of you who like a robust blend, please understand that I admit I'm a whimp when it comes to coffee, but I just want to know if there are those out there like me who have found K cups to be too bold, and if so, how did you deal with it? I'm a bit surprised that I haven't seen a similar comment out there in cyberspace, so I'm wondering if perhaps I'm doing something wrong. Any suggestions are appreciated.
