K-cups are all the rage these days, and we totally understand why. The advent of Keurig coffee makers practically transformed the way we drink our daily cup (or cups, plural) of joe, allowing for a more convenient way to brew a single serving of everyone’s favorite beverage. I purchased my first Keurig machine when I was in college, and the ease of use, mess-free set-up and ability to make a single cup for a late-night study session was a major game-changer for me. Not only are these devices popular caffeine-hungry college kids, but they’re also basically an essential centerpiece present in pretty much every office kitchen (…and if your office is without one, I suggest protesting).

While loyal environmentalists have detested K-cups for being wasteful, that hasn’t stopped coffee lovers from indulging in their favorite way to brew their beloved java. As major fans ourselves, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite K-cup brands and flavors to try for yourself.
