(Stay with me to the end of the post for a fabulous Keurig giveaway!)
We are not a family that splurges on fancy cars (both our cars are over 15 years old) or expensive trips (just going to the beach with a family of eight is costly enough.)
However, one item I splurged on for Christmas of 2011 was a Keurig for my coffee drinking husband.
Before that year I had never understood what the big deal about kcups was all about.
To me Keurig represented luxury and elegance and the opposite of my frugal lifestyle.
Now I get it.
I am in love with iced tea kcups.
I am not a coffee drinker but the iced tea has won me over. Snapple Lemon Iced Tea. Celestial Seasonings Southern Sweet Perfect Iced Tea.
A glass of sweet tea at dinner is my incentive to make it through the day!
Seriously, I love it that much.
Tim and I have begun starting our mornings together while he has a mug (or maybe closer to a thermos) of his favorite kcup coffee. Usually the rule in the house is don’t talk to daddy until he’s had that cup of coffee. It’s a good rule.
We’re practicing what it will look like when our youngest ones leave the nest. It’s a good thing!
All the Info on the Brand I Love
As a name devoted to excellence since the early 1990s, Keurig is the leading single cup brewing system in North America. The high-quality technology allows users to brew the perfect cup – every time.
Choose from more than 250 gourmet varieties of coffee, tea and hot cocoa. With so many choices, there’s always something to make everyone happy.
Brew. Place your K-Cup® pack in the brewer, lower the handle and select your favorite brew size. It’s as simple as that, ready in 60 seconds or less, and there’s never any grinding, measuring or clean up.
Enjoy. Whether it’s a mug of hot coffee in the morning, a relaxing cup of afternoon tea or a refreshing iced beverage, one-cup brewing means it’s always fresh and delicious. Every cup. Every time.
Just a few of the reasons you’ll love your Keurig:
Go ahead, press snooze. With Keurig, it’s as fast as choosing your favorite K-cup pack, placing it inside the brewer and selecting your brew size. In less than a minute, you’ll have your beverage in hand and ready to enjoy.
De-stress with less mess. Breakfast dishes, scattered toys and unmade beds. You already have too much to clean up this morning. Why add coffee filters, beans and leftover brew to the mix? Keep your kitchen clean and organized with a Keurig brewer.
Brew the best. Why settle for an average cup of coffee, or waste time standing in line at a coffee shop, when you can make a great-tasting beverage in your own kitchen? Keurig K-Cup packs are designed to lock in freshness, so your coffee has the same rich aroma and flavor as freshly ground brew – just without the extra work.
