What is a Keurig?
A Keurig K45 Elite to be specific, is a little peace of heaven in my life!
I try my best to enjoy each day in its entirety but there is something special about mornings. Perhaps it’s the idea that I’m getting another chance to accomplish what I didn’t the day before or could it be the smell of fresh brewed coffee that really gets me going?
I am a coffee drinker and anytime is coffee o’clock around my place but since I’ve gotten my Keurig K45 Elite, I’ve found coffee time comes around more often than before. Let me be clear, I’ve always had the traditional coffee pot and for the most part, it has always done just what I needed it to do, perk a nice brew of coffee for my cup. However, the Keurig K45, which was a gift I might add, really changed my appreciation for coffee. I mean really good coffee.
My mornings are filled with random things to do and remember, but thanks to the convenience factor, all I have to do is push the button and go…Yaay!!
For quite some time, I’d been eyeing the neat looking Keurig machines in stores but to be honest, I was a bit intimidated. I mean, it’s not your ordinary coffee pot and I figured it was just some overpriced coffee maker with an overwhelming design. NOPE! That’s not it at all. The foundation of my degree of satisfaction with the Keurig is somewhat shared between its ability to brew tea or coffee with the neat little K-cup and the fact that I can use my preferred special blend of either when brewing. Did I mention that I can brew a 6 oz. cup when I only want a small amount and up to 10 oz. when I need a bit more of a boost? Convenience in Green Mountain Roasts K-cups is what I call it, lol.
As you can tell, I am more than impressed with my Keurig K45 Elite and a bit disappointed that I hadn’t gotten one sooner. I’m pretty sure my procrastination in purchasing one had a bit to do with the price point but honestly, my occasional morning runs to Starbucks before meetings would have easily paid for this system in no time. So, not only am I saving money, I’m getting to spend a bit more time with my neighbor. She loves morning chats and of course, always looks forward to her cup of tea. Add the fact that adult conversation does a lot for a mom and you’ve got the best of both worlds.
If I could change anything about my cool little coffee companion, it would likely be the excessive need to clean the parts on the Keurig. Yeah, I’m a bit lazy and would rather not have to clean each individual part on a weekly basis but that’s not too bad. My friend had the Mr. Coffee single serve brewer and found that the parts were constantly in need of repair or replace. As for me, I haven’t experienced that with the Keurig and hopefully won’t have those issues.
