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 KeurigÂ® Platinum Brewing System and it was a great machine. We then switched to our current machine the KeurigÂ® 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-CupÂ® 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-CupÂ® varieties. They also give one FREE sample pack for every 6 K-CupÂ® boxes purchased. You earn 1 point for every K-CupÂ® 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!
