Anyone who knows me at all knows that I am a Mama who adores her coffee. There might be nothing I enjoy more then a good cup of coffee. Oh wait unless is chocolate with that coffee, oh and cake! So when I was offered a chance to try out the brand new Keurig system courtesy of Staples, I had to jump at the chance.
Life is busy and my little girls are growing up way too fast. It seems like just yesterday when I would gather with my “Mommy Group” for our once a week coffee. Taking turns hosting at each others houses. There would be laughter, baby hugging, and even a few tears as we supported each other through the biggest changes of our lives. The growth of our family and so much time spent alone with little people who didn’t talk back, just seemed easier when shared with good friends. Two things I could always count on at the Mommy Group, a good chat and a great cup of coffee. During those days we brewed pot after pot! Now Mommy Group is but a memory, as is the need to brew an entire pot of coffee. The big coffee maker just doesn’t see as much use as it used to.
This is one reason I was happy to review the Keurig Coffee System. I am a coffee snob, so was willing to put it to the test and see if it would stand up to my pot that grinds fresh beans and brews on demand. You know what? I wasn’t disappointed!
My favourite features and thoughts on the Keurig:
*It is super easy set up. Take the Keurig out of the box, follow a couple of steps and you are ready to go in only moments.
*The filter system allows for the use of filtered water. Yes Please. I do wish the reservoir held a little more water. I seem to be filling it up quite often.
*I am amazed and impressed with the sheer variety of flavours available! There are over 200 varieties of K-Cups to choose from.
*Hot! This system creates a truly hot cup of coffee.
*Consistency. You can count on the same strength and tasting cup of Joe by simply pressing a button.
*The Auto Shut Off. If you so choose you can set up your Keurig Brewer to automatically turn off two hours after your last brew. A great feature for me!
*So easy to use. The first time you turn it on for the day it does take about four minutes to heat up. Impatient me does wish it was a little faster.
Short of delivery from my favourite coffee shops, the Keurig is my new favourite system. It truly makes a consistent, hot, great tasting cup of coffee with ease! I’m a fan. Now I’m off to try and see how many of those 200 flavours I can get through this week!
Keurig Systems and K Cups can be found at your local Staples Store!
