#JustBrewIt with Keurig 2.0 this Holiday Season
Your morning cup of coffee is the start to your day. It will make or break how your day is going to go. If you are like me, you don’t mess around when it comes to coffee. To say I had been unhappy with my Keurig knock-off was an understatement. It was loud, the coffee was bad and it only worked when it felt like it. An upgrade was on my holiday wish list. I saw the Keurig 2.0 had been released and I was really intrigued by it.
Last month, on the way home from the Toy Insider’s Hot Toys event in New York City, we ran smack right into the Keurig team. They were on a mission. A mission to get people to look up off of the phones and engage with the people around them – Look up and say hello! Throughout the streets of New York, Keurig was handing out cups of delicious coffee. The plus side for me? I finally had the chance to get a hands on look at this new machine. I was now sold I NEEDED this machine in my life.
The look of the Keurig 2.0 K550 machine is very sleek and modern. We have very low counter tops, so I was nervous it wasn’t going fit. It fit perfectly without me having to move it every time I wanted to use it.
This time of the year, I have company a lot. People stopping by to exchange gifts with the kids, just enjoying the company of our friends and family. It’s important to me to take the time out of our busy schedules to enjoy our time with the people we love. Everyone always seems to want a cup of coffee. Previous Keurig’s offered the convenience of everyone being able to have a cup of coffee that suited their preferences. Being how we got rid of our traditional coffeemaker, it would often get cumbersome to make multiple cups of coffee. My favorite feature of the 2.0?
I’ve been using the Carafe for more than just for company. We use it to fill our travel mugs up before we head out the door or when we want more than cup of coffee each. I find it much more convenient and it saves on the number of K-Cups we have to use. The carafe is cool to the touch, so it is fine to keep on the counter when it fills up or touch the outside of it.
I have read some mixed reviews about the Keurig 2.0 and I have to say I am really unsure why. I honestly, haven’t found anything I do not like yet. Many people are talking about how it only takes Keurig K-Cups. Personally, that is all I use anyway. I find other types do not taste very well. I use my Sam’s Club membership to buy the K-Cups. I can get 80+ of my favorite brands for around $30 and it lasts me for 6+ weeks. Many times my local supermarket has great sales on Donut Shop or Green Mountain and I stock up when I can. The K-Carafe cups are priced at the same as using 4 of the K-Cups, so they are no more expensive to buy either.
The water reservoir holds up to 80oz of water and it heats up very fast in my opinion. I find it is very quiet. My husband leaves for work in the early morning hours and I am never awoken from him making his coffee anymore or when it is out of water. It also can heat up a cup of hot water for you as well for instant soups or teas.
I’m excited to share a cup of coffee with my friends and family this holiday season thanks to the Keurig 2.0!
