While at BlogHer13, I won something… a Keurig coffeemaker. All I did was tweet about how I enjoyed the Brew Over Ice tea. They put a giant chunk of ice in a plastic cup, put it under the Keurig and bada bing! Perfect iced tea. I actually went back for seconds…
While I have enjoyed using these machines at other people’s houses, I could never bring myself to buy one. Cost was a factor. The machine seemed expensive and the coffee cups didn’t seem like a good buy. Plus, I didn’t want to have to buy bottled water just to have coffee. That seemed ridiculous.
I’m getting over that. Mostly because I don’t have to use bottled water with the machine I have. It’s got a filter built into it, so I can use water from the tap. Of course, I have to replace the filter every two months, so that cost should be factored into the equation, but I’m too lazy to do the math.
Plus, when I look for Keurig stuff, I get distracted. (Shocker!)
I want all the flavors.
I’m on a mission to bring back Irish Cream as a popular flavor. When I was a kid (pre-Starbucks mind you) I loved drinking that flavor of coffee with my dad and sister. It was sweet, but not too sweet.
Plus, I want to try the random flavors like blueberry, chocolate turtle, cinnamon… OK, I haven’t seen a cinnamon one, but there should be.
Also, I want all the tea, obviously. Iced tea, but also the Sleepy Time stuff I can drink when I’ve had too much caffeine. I also want to get that little do dad that lets you brew your own coffee/tea. It might be cheaper and I can still have my favorite coffee, Peets.
Yes, I’m aware I’ll have to clean that thing out, but it can’t be that difficult or annoying, can it? Then again, just about anything can be difficult or annoying with the right mindset.
However, it is nice that the coffee is made so quickly and since I’m the only one who drinks it, I don’t have to make a pot and possibly waste a bunch of it.
