Ok I caved.
I have managed to go from someone who barely drinks coffee to someone who went & spent some christmas cash on a Keurig!
It took a while to convince myself & I went back & forth between models, but the sale prices did me in.
My thought process is that its a WHOLE lot cheaper than those delicious drinks from a certain java place. Besides they only really light up my life when they offer the Pumpkin Spice Lattes – which is just a few short months of the year.
Also cheaper than the drive thru economical alternative I have been getting once in a while.
The other thoughts are – FINALLY I will be awake at work in the morning, even on the days that I don’t splurge on the lattes. Plus it leaves the French Press in the dust speed & ease wise! Not that I won’t still go for that on weekends when I want to. Something so rewarding with the strength & method of the press. But in reality, in the mornings I am just not up to it.
I got the B60 model, which has a timer on it to turn it off after a certain time – no forgetting & wondering all day IF I turned the coffee maker off or not. Also it has a feature that turns the machine on at a certain time, say when my alarm goes off to wake me up. That way the water does the quick heat up before being ready to brew while I am still dragging myself from between the sheets to the bathroom. By the time I get to the kitchen, then machine is just waiting on me to pick the blend to brew today.
LOVE that I am not wasting a pot or press full of coffee everytime I want some. The single cup is the way to go. I can use the travel mugs I have without wondering what to do with the rest of the stuff that won’t pour in. I have never been great about saving it & it seems like a horrible thing to waste. Might be just the right amount in the french press if I had a roommate, but as a solo chick, its morn than I can haul to work.
Plus I got the K-cup where you can add any coffee, so that should help lower the cost & keep me drinking my favorites – mainly Deadman’s Reach by Ravenbrew! It hasn’t made it in to me yet but its on the way (they were sold out other than one that was open… I’ll pass).
I am looking forward to trying most of the flavors. In all honestly, I don’t really see the point of decaf. But I have one that came with the machine, so I guess I will try it sooner or later.
Any suggestions on flavors to try?
I already have a box of pumpkin spice being shipped to me! Can not wait to get those in the machine.
