My boyfriend got me a Keurig coffee maker for Christmas and it’s one of my favorite things in the house. It’s probably the coolest thing in my kitchen and is certainly the only thing I use daily aside from the toilet (which is not in the kitchen).
I was buying 60-pack boxes of Keurig K-cups which are little foil-topped, ground-filled cups in various flavors that you stick in the coffee maker and out pops (pours?) coffee. Then we bought a make-your-own-K-cup filter that you can fill with your own preferred coffee and I realized I could save like $30 a month. If I had my way, though, I’d drink Green Mountain’s Black Magic every.single.day.
I love it because I have no need to make coffee in 4, 6, 8, 12+ serving batches. I also hate dealing with wet filters, spilled grounds, etc. With Keurig you just pop out the K-cup and throw it away. No mess.
Since my kitchen is smaller than most people’s closets, there is little to brag about in it. But what we’re calling the “breakfast nook”–a former bedside table tucked into a corner with a toaster and my trusty Keurig on top–is worth showing. Jealous?
