Ahhh, coffee. The very smell of it can relax you and make you feel all warm inside. The drink has a lot of health effects, as well, as studies have shown over the years.
I have been a coffee drinker since I was a kid, and my grandma would let me fix myself a cup to drink with her in the mornings. Back then I would load my coffee down with milk and sugar to make it as sweet as possible, and it made me feel big to be able to sit at the table with the grownups and have my coffee with them. These days, I still like it sweet but definitely not as sweet as I used to, and I’d rather have a little bit of cream instead of milk. However, I still love starting my day off with a good cup of coffee. There’s just something about the aroma and the taste (and the caffeine!!) that get me going and keep me focused on my day.
A few weeks ago, I got some questions in my Influenster Snaps about my use of coffee. I was excited at the prospect of maybe getting some free samples of creamer or even a new coffee to try out. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine it would be something as awesome as getting a brand new Keurig!!
I could not wait to try this machine. For years I’ve been wanting a Keurig. As the only true coffee drinker in my house, it made a lot more sense for me to only brew one or two cups of coffee instead of an entire pot, because otherwise the rest would waste. I switched to instant coffee a few years ago for this reason, and also because I felt like buying myself a Keurig would be selfish; I felt a little of that “Mom guilt” (y’all know what what I’m talking about, right?) about spending so much money on something that was primarily for me. So when I got the email from Influenster stating I was getting a new Keurig K-Compact Single Serve Coffee Maker, I was absolutely ecstatic! I’ve wanted a Keurig machine and even been told by so many people “You need a Keurig” that it almost felt like destiny. And all I had to do was try it out and write a review for Keurig.com?! So easy!
The first thing I noticed about the K-Compact Single Serve machine was how easy it was to set up. I put off taking it out of the box for a day because I didn’t want to have to assemble a bunch of parts and pieces, but it literally comes out of the box ready to use; all I had to do was remove a few pieces of tape and fill the water tank, then run a short cleaning cycle. The entire set up process took less than 10 minutes, and then the machine was ready to use. I was pretty amazed!
The second thing I noticed was how fast it was!! It takes less than two minutes to brew a cup of coffee, which has made my morning routine so much simpler and convenient. I love that I can have fresh brewed coffee every morning in less than the time it takes me to blow dry my hair. I can literally set up my mug to brew while I’m getting ready and grab it on my way out the door. No more having to waste money and trips to McDonald’s or Casey’s in the morning to get my morning joe!
The third thing I love about the machine is that the coffee itself is flavorful and delicious! Influenster and Keurig sent me three different blends to try, and all three are rich blends that taste amazing. And if I’m not in the mood for coffee, there are tons of other K-cup options out there for teas as well! I have been looking around and I’ve already found a couple of K-cup variety packs out there I can’t wait to try with my new Keurig machine!
The bottom line is, I’m in LOVE with this machine and I am so thankful to Influenster and Keurig for choosing me to receive one! I would recommend this coffee maker to anyone who loves coffee- especially people like me who are too busy to slow down their morning routine for a cup of coffee! You can invest in one of these babies and save yourself the time and money of having to go out of your way for a cup of coffee from here on out.
