For nearly 6 months now, I have been bonding with my Keurig machine making coffee, tea, hot cocoa or just plain hot water instantaneously.
I'm the only coffee drinker in our household so the machine is very fitting for me and my lifestyle. Before I leave for work, I brew a cup to go. At bedtime, brewing a cup of Sleepytime tea is quite soothing. And during the cold winter months, my guy enjoys a cup of hot cocoa.
If you are not familiar with the Keurig, you simply add water to the side container and pop in a k-cup of your favorite brew, tea or hot cocoa.
Select the size of brew you'd like (small, medium or large cup) and it starts pouring into your cup.
And once you become obsessed with this machine, you begin to collect a variety of k-cups. And you can purchase a reusable coffee filter to use your own grounds.
I would have shared a photo of the boxes of k-cups that I've collected into one of our kitchen cabinets, but my Canon 20D decided to quit working in the midst of this photo shoot. Gosh, I hope it's not serious.
Anyway, if you are looking for a practical Mother's Day or Father's Day gift, may I recommend this machine to you. And there are several types of machines to consider.
If you think this would be the ideal appliance for your kitchen, why not gift one to yourself.
I raise my cup of Green Mountain's Limited Edition French Toast coffee (my favorite) in a toast to the Keurig and those who appreciate a good cup of Joe.
