The perfect cup of coffee.
Ahhh – coffee. Is there anything better?! I am telling you, it was years before I was ever able to drink coffee. I loved the smell of it brewing but I didn’t like the taste of it. I always jokingly say that I didn’t reach adulthood until the age of 35 and that’s when I found my love for the sweet substance. I like mine with sweet cream, no sugar! How do you like yours?
Staples and Keurig offered to let me do a Keurig Review of the Keurig OfficePro B145 machine. I have heard about Keurig machines forever and was always jealous of my friends who had them. I liked the coffee maker that we already had but what I didn’t like about it was that in order to keep my coffee hot, I’d have to turn on the warmer. Then, once it got down to about a half a pot or less, the warmer would scorch the coffee. Down the drain it would go, such a waste! I didn’t really like microwaving my coffee either, because then it doesn’t taste as fresh.
It’s here! Yay!
So, when I was offered to do the Keurig review, I was beyond ecstatic! It was like 3 Christmas’s all wrapped up into one when the box arrived. I was happy to find my package included several different KCups to sample too! I tore open my box and plugged that baby in – and could NOT wait for my first cup of coffee. Now, a month later, I can still say that I cannot wait for my 1st cup each and every morning.
It’s so easy to use and every single cup is a FRESH cup! YUM! It holds quite a bit of water so you don’t have to fill the machine with water for every cup. The water reservoir holds about 48 oz. of water so that’s several cups of coffee in one fill. The heater keeps the water nice and hot so every cup is nice and steaming! Each cup of coffee brews in under 1 minute so it’s super fast too!
My knight in shining armor! 😉
I loved most of the KCups they sent for me to sample. My favorite one overall was the Green Mountain Nantucket Blend! Some of the stronger or bold varieties, I let my husband use because he likes really strong coffee. I love that there are so many different varieties of KCups and even sample packs if you like a variety. They also make tea, cocoa and cider KCups…yum! Keep in mind that there are also refillable coffee filters for Keurig machines if you find that you like one certain brand of coffee or if the price of KCups don’t work with your grocery budget.
I am SO in love with my Keurig machine and I really wish I had bought one a long time ago. It is my knight in shining armor! 🙂 This one that I have, the Keurig OfficePro B145 is really made for small offices but it’s no bigger than the personal machines. Plus, it gets better reviews online than some of the other Keurig models. This one retails for $129 on the Staples site.
