As a musician and composer, my life is fueled by caffeine. I love coffee and always have, I guess from the first cup my grandmother gave me when I was 15, whipped up in an old school percolator – do you remember those? Well the coffee drinking experience has come a long way and today there’s a Starbucks on just about every corner, serving a long list of fancy coffee drinks or bold, rich drip coffee named after its country of origin. One of the latest innovations in the coffee industry is the Keurig coffee maker and their fantastic K-Cups.
Well, I’ve always had a 12 cup drip coffee maker and at first figured the Keurig K-Cups were just another gimmick that I could live without, at least until I had the opportunity to try them out at a friend’s house; now I’m hooked. I love everything about K-Cups! I love the fact that I can make one cup of coffee in the early afternoon or evening without having to make a whole pot. I love the fact that you never get those left over drips on the kitchen counter that I can’t seem to avoid. Most of all, I love that I can choose from a variety of coffee blends (I love options) one cup at a time and even tea or hot chocolate; what’s not to love about that??? Best of all, my delicious cup of coffee will be ready for me to enjoy in seconds and tastes as good any coffee blend you’d find in a prestigious coffee shop, at a fraction of the cost.
Long story short, I love my Keurig coffee maker, their awesome K-Cups, and the variety they come in that includes Green Mountain coffee, one of my favorites. Other popular brands include Starbucks (of course) Donut House, Timothy’s, Gloria Jeans and more. I’d suggest buying a sampler pack of K-Cups and trying them all.
