I was given a Keurig machine along with two boxes flavored coffee to try from Quill.com in exchange for an honest blog review. All opinions are strictly my own.
If you read my blog post promoting The Coffee Cup 2014 Challenge, then you know that a Keurig® machine has been on my wish list for quite some time now. I was thrilled at the chance to review the Keurig® K145 OfficePRO® Brewing System. I was also blessed with the chance to review Green Mountain Coffee®K-Cup®Packs; Mocha Nut Fudge and Gloria Jean’s®K-Cup® Packs; Mudslide.
The Keurig® machine is totally utterly awesome. I love that I can make a cup of coffee within three minutes time. There is absolutely no mess unless you count me making mess transferring it from the smaller coffee mug to my travel mug. That brings me to the only thing I didn’t like about this particular Keurig® machine, the opening under the sprout isn’t big enough for me to fit my big travel mug under. That’s a VERY MINOR issue compared the amount of pleasure this machine has brought into my life.
The Keurig® K145 OfficePRO® Brewing System is idea for offices with 15 or less employees in it. Our home currently operates three different businesses and we have four adults who enjoy making beverages with this lovely machine. It has been used daily since we have received it. It has the ability to brew 6, 8, or 10 oz. brew sizes. This is ideal when you have different preferences for the amount of coffee a person wants to drink at one time. I love the fact that the water reservoir holds 48 oz. at a time so I don’t have to fill it up for every use. It comes with a one year limited warranty. It does weight a nice little chunk at 16 pounds so you’re not likely to want to move it around very much at all. It does need to be plugged up to a 120V. It does only make one cup of coffee at a time, which can be a draw back if you have several people wanting coffee at the same time. For me personally though, it works out beautifully because I’ve turned into the primary coffee drinker in the home.
The Fun Part of Owning It
Now I get to talk about the fun part of owning a Keurig® machine. I knew there was plenty of different flavors and K-Cup® Packs to choose from just by visiting the Keurig® website. However, I didn’t really get overly hooked on the idea of buying one until I read a fellow bloggers review and some ideas of things she’s done with her K-Cup® summer flavors that she’s grown to enjoy. That is when the whole concept of me getting one of these machines became a must have. Not to mention, dishing out almost $4.00 on a Frappe’ from McDonald’s was putting me in the poor house fast because I needed the extra bolt to stay awake to get everything done on my to-do lists for the day.
Many Coffee Lovers Flavors
There are 225 different K-Cup® Pack choices to choose from. Our sponsor, Quill.com carries 93 of the most popular flavors. There are a wide range of coffee flavors, tea indulgences, iced beverages, and even hot cocoa options to choose from. I’m eager to dig in and try as many as I can. Did you know that there is a membership program with Keurig® that will give you points for every pack you order that you can cash in for pretty cool prizes from Keurig®? Like other coffee brands out there, they also offer an automatically shipment of your favorite items based on the number of weeks you want to set it up.
When I registered my machine, I was given a deal that I couldn’t pass up of buying 2 K-Cup® Packs and getting 2 K-Cup® Packs FREE and FREE shipping. It was a great opportunity to stack up on my favorite new flavor.
One of the very few alcoholic drinks that I love is a Mudslide. However, I’ve LOVED the virgin version since I was a teenager. That love has never died. I couldn’t wait to dig in and try the Mudslide flavor coffee. Especially since I had the Baileys®Mudslide Coffee Creamer to go with it (this is not a sponsored part at all!) This has become what I consider to be a Coffee Lovers Perfect Combination.
I did try the other flavor coffee too, but I wasn’t overly fond of it. It is still good, but it’s not quite as good as my Mudslide flavor.
Coffee Lovers Benefits
I’m glad that there are at least 11 solid reasons why coffee is good for me and my fellow coffee lovers because now that I have this new lovely product in my home, I can tell now that I’ll be drinking a lot of coffee and using it in many other neat recipes. My family and I love how it makes me feel.
