So this past week was pretty amazing and spectacular. I was give the chance to review a new Keurig® 2.0. Naturally, I was more than excited for this opportunity, especially being as I'm about to have a houseful of guests next week for the holidays.
I've had an older Keurig® on my kitchen counter being used each day (usually more than once - especially when my grandmother or mother visit), for well over two years now. It's been true and faithful to me, and I to it.
Being a mom, coffee is my life's blood. I never really was a fan of coffee until I became an adult and I was always told that it was an acquired taste. These days though? I can't go a morning without my cup of joe!
What's so great and amazing about the new Keurig® 2.0? Well, one of my favorite new features is that it brews both a single cup, and now a carafe of coffee as well! That means that when I've got company, and I usually do on the weekends and around holidays, that I don't have to stand in the kitchen with the Keurig® to make each visitor their own singular cup of coffee, tea, or whatever they may be delighting in.
Instead of all that, I get to brew a full carafe to set on the table for all to enjoy. Yes, even myself! I can't tell you how many times that this single feature would have come in handy for one reason or another. It will be nice this year to sit down with a cup of coffee and enjoy making new and fun memories with my family.
The new Keurig® 2.0 also features a new Keurig Brewing Technology™. What does that mean? Well, it reads each label on your K-Cup packs and K-Carafe packs to be sure that it brews a perfect beverage each and every time. And that is exactly what you get.
My first cup of coffee out of the Keurig® 2.0 was a toe-curling experience. It was the sort of excellent cup of coffee that I get at the local coffee house to enjoy as I listen to modern jazz and watch the cool-kid hipsters pass by.
I know that everyone has their own way of doing coffee. Some like it black, others want sugar or cream, and still more take it a step further and have fun creating something entirely unique.
No matter what your perfect cup of coffee is, Keurig® will have an option for it since they have over 400 options for drinks to brew for yourself, family, and friends. All those selections come straight to you from more than 60 brands; 10 of which are America's best selling coffee brands that we all know and love.
I think I've tried nearly all of them too!
She hasn't ever had a Keurig® before and always loves to brew herself a cup first thing in the morning when she stays at my place (which is just about every weekend during the holidays!) Since she was here this weekend, I decided to let Keurig® Klaus visit her a little early as you can see.
Don't worry. There's still time! You can find the Keurig® 2.0 at Target to purchase for the coffee or tea lover in your life today.
My mom was elated to get her Keurig®!
So now the next big question is... what is it that I do with my Keurig®?
What's my favorite coffee drink?
Well, if you haven't guessed yet, it's a skinny cinnamon dolce latte. And guess what else? You can make one with your Keurig® 2.0!
