Santa came early in my house. Especially since Santa gave Mrs. Claus the go-ahead to order her own gift, courtesy of a fantastic sale on cyber Monday at Kohl’s. Over the years I’ve talked openly about my coffee addiction, and my endless search for the perfect cup of coffee.
As a side note, the number one google term that people find my blog lately is by arranging and rearranging the following: “senior coffee from McDonald’s” My senior McDonald’s moment was highlighted in this post. And for those searching, the answer that you seek is FIFTY. I know, it seems wrong to me as well. But I still gladly take the change.
I’ve come to you all when I need to replace a dead or dying coffee maker. And you’ve never let me down when it comes to suggestions for this all-important purchase. The last time I had to buy a coffee maker, I settled on the Cuisinart (the one that grinds the beans in the machine). I do love this coffee pot, but the noise that ensues at 7AM can throw a wrench in my plans for a little quiet time (or as I like to call it: The Moment of Dread) that directly precedes the rest of the house waking up.
Many many of you recommended the Keurig individual cup coffee maker. I have been eying this coffee pot for a good year or more, but couldn’t justify the expense. Then cyber Monday loomed large, and this was a sale I couldn’t pass up. With free shipping.
So, this is what graces my kitchen counter now. I bought the mini version, with the purpose of satisfying my individual cup of coffee needs during my daily mid-afternoon moment of crisis. I’ve been trying a number of the different flavors that came as samples with the Keurig, and have deemed that the Green Mountain Breakfast Blend is my favorite thus far.
I’ve gotten the My K-Cup reusable coffee filter so that I can fill it with my own beloved Dunkin Donuts coffee. I have justified this expense in that I will use less coffee over the long run, by making one cup at a time. But I haven’t tried it yet.
My question for you Keurig fans, where is the best bargain to be found when purchasing your K-Cups? I have been pricing them at Wal Mart and have been saving coupons, but I am wondering if there is a better deal to be had?
