Coffee Talk

in review

Timing is an interesting thing.

A couple years ago, Adam and I bought a Keurig coffee maker with some of our tax return money and used it religiously nearly every day (and multiple times on weekends). In early October, it decided to stop working. It would just make noise, then no coffee would come out…kind of defeats the purpose.

Imagine my surprise when, just before Thanksgiving, a HUGE box landed on my doorstep with this inside:

Also in the box were two 18-packs of the new Starbucks k-cups, specially designed for the Keurig brewer.

I immediately brewed myself a cup of my favorite grinds, Pikes Place Blend.

While i would love to sit here and tell you all about the remarkable Keurig brewer, I simply must share about the coffee itself. I’ve used many many K-cups in the days we’ve had our Keurig. Never have I ever had a cup of coffee come out of my house that tasted as good as the coffee I used to brew for myself in my barista days.

There was no bitter aftertaste like there is with so many of the other K-cups I’ve used. The breakfast blend cups were a bit lighter-tasting, but just as delicious and smooth. I will definitely be buying the Starbucks K-cups in the future!

Thank you FoodBuzz for the opportunity!

My aunt’s Keurig broke and she called them and they sent her a new one- no questions asked. I have one and I love it. I’m so happy with the Starbucks K-cups that just came out as well. Enjoy it!

My Keurig did that too! I found this video on cleaning it, did it, and now it works perfectly!

Oh, you lucky duck! I added one to our registry! I hope we get it! If not, I might use our wedding money to splurge on us. I don’t like brewed coffee either. Having worked at a coffee shop, I’m now a coffee snob and everything tastes bitter. I usually just stick with the french press, but that’s in storage and is a bit more work than I like to invest in a cup of coffee.

My Keurig did something similar and I found a youtube video on clearing air bubbles…super easy fix and it worked!
