If you find that amusing, I'm serious... and here's why. My wife loves coffee, but since I don't drink it she would never brew a whole pot prefering instead to frequent coffee shops like Starbucks.... and while Keurig coffe on a per-cup basis is more expesive then brewing a pot of "Maxwell House", it's way cheaper then picking up a latte' at Starbucks.
