Keurig Single-Cup Home-Brewing System Review and Giveaway
I used to hate coffee. Seriously. I would not touch it with a ten-foot pole. Then, my well-meaning husband introduced me to Starbucks a few months ago. Um, big mistake! Java Chip Frappuccinos and White Chocolate Mochas became a very expensive habit. If it hadn’t been for the Starbucks Gift Cards I got free from Swagbucks (that were feeding my habit), I would have blown our budget big-time!
Since I’m new to the coffee-world, I don’t know how to make coffee. So, even though we have an old coffee-maker, I won’t use it. I’m not sure how much coffee I need and just don’t feel like messing with it, when I can just drive through Starbucks.
A couple of months ago Keurig sent me their single-cup home-brewing system to try out. I was a little nervous that I wouldn’t be able to figure out how it works (most appliances tend to not agree with me…), but it was surprisingly easy to set up!
I only drink 1 cup of coffee a day, so making a whole pot is a waste for me. To make a cup of coffee with the Keurig, all I have to do is turn it on, pop in a K-cup, and press “brew”. The removable 48-ounce water reservoir only has to be refilled every few days. Within just a couple minutes I have a yummy cup of coffee. No measuring, no waiting, no mess. Love it!
The K-Cups are what makes it awesome if you ask me. If you like to change your coffee flavors regularly, it is so easy just to put in a different K-Cup. So, I can make a cup of French Vanilla for me, a cup of Hazelnut for my husband, and a cup of decaf for my mom – all within just a few minutes.
Now, admittedly, the K-Cups are a bit expensive. However, it is much cheaper than Starbucks! If you buy the K-cups on Amazon in bulk you can get a pretty good price – under 50¢ a cup for many varieties. There is also a reusable filter that you can buy if you prefer to use regular coffee grounds. It will save you a little more money, but it’s also a little more hassle.
So, all in all, I have been very pleased with my Keurig. The ease of use and quick brewing process have helped to curb my Starbucks habit. Though, I do still enjoy the occasional Java Chip Frappuccino while I shop at Target. 😉
