is the 10 oz. cup of coffee weaker than the 8?

on Keurig Elite B40 K-Cup Brewing System

Answers
answer 1
Any small cup you use to brew (6 or 8 oz) will produce a much stronger beverage than a 10 or 12 oz. You can buy stronger body k-cups if you like a strong coffee and want to brew it on the larger sizes so it does not get weak on you. The stronger k-cups have more grounds of coffee in them which makes them stronger.

answer 3
Yes. It makes it weaker. What's worse is that the large 10 oz size doesn't fill most of our household mugs but half way. So we run it through twice, further weakening the coffee. Plan to use two k-cups for a decent mug each morning.

It all depends upon which coffee you are using and how strong you like your coffee. My mom used the 10oz setting for a K-cup marked "bold" as she doesn't like a super stong cup of coffee but wanted enough to fill her car mug. She found it very tasty. On the other hand, my friend would like his spoon to stand in his coffee and the 8oz was good for him. I think you may just have to experiment to find what works best for you. Basically the 10oz is adding 2 more ounces of water to your coffee. If you start with a light brew and like a bold coffee those extra 2 oz may very well weaken the taste.

You can purchase a plastic k cup attachment (17.00) so you can fill it with your own coffee, which is cheaper.

K cups are sold pretty much everywhere. Where coffee is sold or also on display where the coffee makers are sold.

The one I have, I found at Bed Bath and Beyond, and the lid snaps down on it, but I saw one online earlier today at Samsclub.com where the lid screws on that you can get filters for!

You can buy iced beverage k-cups that Keurig sells, and make it on any Keurig machine. Put a glass full of ice cubes and brew the beverage on the smallest cup size. Usually you have to brew it a few more times as well to fill up the cup. Then add more ice, and sugar if needed.

Yes it will - but there's no "Iced Setting". Just put some ice in your mug or thermal glass and brew over ice. They even have special "Iced Coffee and Iced Tea" K-cups. I loved the Southern Sweet Tea this summer!! I even made it as hot tea and it's already sweetened so didn't have to add sugar! Of course they have the unsweetened as well.

It does vibrate slightly. If you're concerned about the vibration or noise you might want to consider purchasing the Keurig B70. It is extremely quite, doesn't vibrate and also has the option of brewing iced coffee and iced tea. I purchased two of the models as gifts this year and the recipients absolutely love them!
