Keurig Coffee: I'm In Love With My K-Cups

I recently got a Keurig coffee maker. Here's my review of the Keurig k-cup coffee machine.

Coffee Prayers Answered!

This coffee maker is the answer to a major coffee problem in my house. I wake up about 3-4 hours earlier than my husband each day and as a result, he either gets stale coffee or I get to make two pots each morning (because the pouty lip and the rave reviews about my coffee's loveliness get me every time. )

This coffee maker makes a single cup of coffee at a time and perfectly brews each cup with a k-cup which looks like a milk creamer so this resolves several things including:

-getting a fresh cup of coffee
-getting a fast cup of coffee
-getting the exact flavour you want!

The k-cups are easy to use but not so easy to find as they're not yet available in the grocery stores (from what I've seen but I've seen them in coffee shops and Home Outfitters) so I'll likely start ordering them online through Amazon so I can get many flavours such as decaf, breakfast blend, vanilla, chai tea, and more. (Buying two boxes allows me to pay $0 in shipping). Sometimes you feel like a regular coffee and sometimes you feel like a flavoured one so it's nice to make just a cup at a time, especially if you and your partner don't feel like the same blend. We can even get it in hot chocolate for the kids.

My favourite is the extra-bold. The aroma fills the house instantly.

I've found extra uses for the Keurig coffee machine as well.

1. Make a hot cup of tea with it
2. Get hot water out of it for Cup-A-Soup and instant oatmeal
3. Make hot chocolate with it

You can use your own coffee instead of buying k-cups if you like by using this little doo-dad:

And, if you want to display your many flavours of coffee and tea on your countertop, you can use the Keurig K-Cup carousel:

Seriously, I love this coffee maker! I'm able to get a cup of fresh coffee any time I want. It literally takes less than a minute and tastes as good as coffee shop coffee. I definitely give Keurig a thumbs up!

Update: Where do I get my k-cups in Ontario?
-Home Outfitters (about $12 for 16 k-cups)
-Timothy stores (about $16 for 24 k-cups)
-Metro Grocery Stores (about $12 for 16 kcups)
-Costco (my favourite option: $25 for 50 k-cups)
