A few months ago I decided to treat myself to a coffee maker and I’m lovin’ it. I’ve had my eye on a Keurig since last fall when QVC had a larger size Keurig (the Keurig Ultimate) as the TSV (Today’s Special Value). I passed on the Keurig Ultimate and wouldn’t you know it, they had a Keurig Personal Mini Brewer as a TSV back in Feburary. I jumped on it, especially since it was on easy pay or evil pay as some QVC customers call it. They offered a variety of colors but I had to decide between blue or red. I chose red since I’ve become hooked on the color red lately. I own a red George Foreman grill.
This is my first coffee maker. Before I bought my Keurig I usually had one cup of coffee at work and maybe once a month I would treat myself to Starbucks Coffee when I needed a more serious pick me up 🙂 It’s nice to finally have my own coffee maker at home and even then I usually stick to one cup or maybe two on the weekends. One of the drawbacks to owning a Keurig is deciding what coffee flavor to buy cause there are so many to choose from. My Keurig came with 28 k-cups and it was a nice variety including Green Mountain Nantucket Blend, Caribou Blend, Celestial Seasoning English Breakfast Tea, Diedrich French Roast, Gloria Jeans Hazelnut, GMCR Newman’s, GMCR Nantucket, Timothy’s Colombian Decaf, Timothy’s Italian, Tully French Roast, Van Houtte French Vanilla. I’ve been able to find the boxes of k-cups at Bed, Bath & Beyond and I ordered a variety of k-cups from a website called Kenoza Coffee.com. At Kenoza you build a box so you can sample the different varieties of coffee flavors. So far my favorites are Green Mountain Nantucket Blend, Caribou Blend, Green Mountain Coffee Southern Pecan, Green Mountain Mocha Nut Fudge, Green Mountain Coffee French Vanilla, Coffee People Donut Shop Extra Bold and Van Houtte French Vanilla. As you can tell I’m lovin’ the Green Mountain brand. You can check out the Green Mountain website along with Coffee People, Van Houtte and Caribou Coffee.
