Holiday Gift Idea: Keurig One Cup Wonders!

I hate coffee, but almost everyone I know is an avid coffee drinker. When they come to my house, I offer them drinks, but never, ever coffee. I don't even know how to make it! My husband is totally different. He roasts his own beans and brews a mean cup of coffee, at least that's what my relatives say. For the past couple of weeks, I have been doing the impossible! Making coffee for friends and family, one cup at a time! Awesome! I even go out of my way now to ask everyone (and their mothers and brothers too) if they want a cup! But I have enjoyed the benefits too! Hot teas and cocoas. Yum! Right out of the box, and the Platinum Keurig is ready to go! First, you plug it in, wash the water reservoir and fill it with water. After that, set your time, cup size and temperature option. Pick out a K-Cup and set it in it's holder and set your cup underneath. Pull the lever and press brew. In less than a minute, your cup is ready!


Logan, my six year old, even made his own cup! But he couldn't touch it until the cup was cool enough to hold! And it's pretty dummy proof. It prompts you on screen to let you know when it needs water, and the blue light under the reservoir flashes to alert you. There is an automatic off feature too! My new Keurig has had nonstop action since it's arrival. I have tried teas and hot cocoas, and my husband and family have enjoyed the different coffee varieties. My husband has even used his own beans by using the My K-Cup option! It's a refillable basket that allows you to use your own coffee! If you never thought you'd be able to afford pods or K-Cups, and that's kept you away from this type of machine, you can afford it now! The Keurig is attractive and it looks great on my countertop. My mom loves it so much, she has tried to talk me into giving it to her! There isn't any chance of that happening, but maybe Santa will leave one under her Christmas tree! Bundle up with Keurig!
To Disclose: I received a Keurig and K-Cups in exchange for this review. No monetary compensation received.

I love Keurig Brewer as well. Makes Great coffee - fast, easy and no mess :). But K-Cups for it not cheap. Actually 40c-50c per cup. Here's website with K-Cup Coffee coupons if you interesting.
