It’s Great To Be Home . . .

Watch Out, Starbucks March 3, 2009

There’s a new brew in town.  Ok, not so new, but still pretty darn nifty.  I’m talking about the Keurig, of course.


You’ve probably heard about this magical little coffee maker and wondered what all the fuss is about.  I wondered too until we got our very own as a wedding gift. 



What’s so special about the Keurig, you may ask?  I think the coolest thing about it is that each one of your guests or every person in your household can have exactly what they want, exactly when they want it.  This is because the Keurig is a single-serving coffee maker, so you no longer have to deal with huge pots of coffee that go to waste.  


It’s also pretty great because you’re no longer stuck making coffee for everyone – it’s so simple that each person can pick out their own personal K-Cup, stick it in the Keurig, and hey presto, less than a minute later out pops their favorite brew.  K-Cups are the special little self-contained little cups that hold the single-serving of coffee, tea, or hot chocolate.  That’s right – hot chocolate!!!!  That was probably my favorite discovery – I know, it’s not like it’s so hard to make hot chocolate in the microwave (or on the stove, for you diehards), but it sure is pretty cool to have hot chocolate on demand.  And by pretty cool, I mean awesome.


This is what those little K-Cup beauties look like:

After your K-Cup has finished brewing, you just throw it away – no cleaning of a coffee pot or any of that nonsense.  Love it!!  And these handy little guys can be purchased at either or Bed Bath & Beyond. 


If you’re really going for that coffee house feel, you can even use one of these nifty little K-Cup holders:
