I couldn’t live without my coffee! Seriously, I don’t just drink it for the caffeine kick, although that is a plus. I really enjoy the taste of coffee. And, I love waking up in morning to the wonderful aroma of fresh coffee brewing. What I don’t love so much is that bitter, burned taste it gets after it’s been sitting in the pot for too long. Yuck! At our house, whoever gets up first is responsible for making the coffee. Unfortunately, that means that by the time the rest of us are ready for a cup, it is often already past its prime.
About a year ago, I found a solution to this problem: the Keurig home brewing system. With this machine, you brew one cup of coffee at a time – when you want it. It is fresh and hot every time. The coffee comes in these little sealed, plastic containers called “K-cups”. You just fill the tank with water, pop in a K-cup, push the brew button and voilà – coffee in about a minute! There are a gazillion different kinds of coffee blends available in K-cups, so you can still have whatever kind of coffee you like. Plus, they even have tea, hot chocolate and iced beverage K-cups. How cool is that? Not only that, but the machine comes with a teeny, tiny coffee filter, so don’t even have to use a K-cup. You can use any coffee you happen to have on hand. Sweet!
So, here’s the best part. The nice folks from Keurig reached out to me a while ago and offered to send me one of their machines to try out. Since I already have one, I asked if they would be willing to send one to a lucky SGCC reader instead. They said yes, and so I’m thrilled to be able to offer one of YOU a Keurig Platinum Brewer of your very own! And trust me, you do want one of these. read more >>
