The Keurig® Special Edition Brewing System

We were provided with both of our machines free of charge from Keurig. We have been using them for about 4 years with no problems. They are great and very convenient.

I remember when Kristin got us our first Keurig machine. At first I was curious how it would work, but to be honest I liked the fact it had individual cups instead of brewing a large pot that just created a lot of taken up space, cold coffee, and in the long run wasting coffee.

We started with a Keurig® Platinum Brewing System and it was a great machine. We then switched to our current machine the Keurig® Special Edition Brewing System. It is slighty smaller which is prefer since I am the only coffee drinker, next to my 2 year old who has been know to snag a sip. I did pick up the separate MY K-CUP which is a steel mesh filter for using your own ground coffee.

I prefer to use the k-cups these days because they are quick, clean, and no mess. Most major stores in our area carry a wide variety of brands and flavors which are good for someone like me who likes to mix up my tastes. The fresh sealed k-cups allow you to mix between kinds with no freshness lose. I’ll share more about my favorite K-Cups soon!!

Kristin did make sure to pick me up a K-Cupâ„¢ Carousel which is great to keep my k-cups organized and easy to add in different flavors and brands. They have many other Keurig accesories.

The Kuerig machine heats up your water fairly quickly at about 1 minute after turn on. As you brew your first cup, the next begins to refill. What is nice is in the mornings, all you have to do is turn it on and everything is ready to go. Make sure to use distilled water to prevent any mineral build up in your system. Tap water is filled and over the years could begin to slow it down.

Right now if you purchase a machine from Keurig.com they will include any 2 FREE K-Cup® boxes when you order 2 boxes. Keurig also has the Club Keurig Rewards programs which includes exclusive rewards and discounts and 10-15% off K-Cup® varieties. They also give one FREE sample pack for every 6 K-Cup® boxes purchased. You earn 1 point for every K-Cup® pack you purchase and the points are good towards 50% off brewers, accessories and more. And best of all the points never expire. There any many more benefits to check out!

    I love our Keurig. The fact that I can brew one cup at a time is awesome. And I also like that I cna brew a cup of jsut hot water if I want tea (a tea that is not a K-cup). I still want to get the MY K-Cup as well.

    I love the convenience and the flavor of the coffee. We’ve become Keurig addicts, I have to admit. And we’ve shared the love…getting one for my FIL, my oldest son and his wife, and my husband’s best friend and his new bride for a wedding gift. All of the above just raved about how much they love it.

    Good call on the distilled water. I used tap for the first year in ours and had to call customer service when it slowed down. They walked me through the process of taking it apart and cleaning it up, but that meant 24 hours without our Keurig while it was being cleaned and though it was not too awfully long, we missed it! We’ve used distilled water since, and haven’t had any other problems (2 yrs later).

    For anyone looking for a great gift, or who can’t quite decide whether to take the leap, I say go for it! We love, Love, LOVE our Keurig!
