From my research so far, it appears that low temperatures are actually better at extracting flavor from the coffee beans without turning the brew acidic. That's probably a reason why Kurig tastes better than other machines. They at least involved some science in their design. But for me, it's still plastic, auto junk.
Have you ever tried using a French press?
yup. it's all about water temperature, the timing, roasting, storage, blends, etc.
Among all "common" coffee machines out there, Keurig does rank high but by my standard - it ranks low. IMO - it tastes... empty. the smell and taste are very short-lived. how disappointing. Keurig uses plastic container while Nespresso uses metal containers which is why this tastes the best.
