Our Keurig

One of the first wedding gifts we received was from Johnny's good friend, Scott and his family. They generously got us the Keurig coffee maker from our registry, and we could not be more thrilled. We might have even broken a Miss Manner's rule and set this bad boy up and started using him before the big day! (shhh)

Johnny and I both like coffee, but we're not huge drinkers. We don't need it to start our day, or every day for that matter. If we make it, it's usually just 1 or 2 cups, and we enjoy a wide variety of flavors. I wish I had a picture of our old "coffee and tea" cabinet from the house in Illinois. Literally, it was an entire cabinet devoted solely to coffee and tea. There were bags and bags of caffeinated, decaffeinated, mild roast, dark roast, flavored, seasonal offerings- you name it!

That's why I thought the Keurig would be perfect for us. It heats up in a few minutes and is ready to make individual cups of coffee in a few seconds. Instead of a cabinet with a gazillion opened, half-used bags of coffee, we could just select different K-cups based on our mood.

Which brings me to the next awesome wedding gift we got, from a family friend, Arlene! After the wedding as a congratulations/house warming gift she got us the K-cup holder we had registered for! It matches the Keurig machine perfectly and holds many cups, so you can rotate and pick your favorite flavor to brew!

Do any of you have a Keurig machine? If so, what is your favorite K-cup flavor?? I'm currently loving Dark Magic because of it's boldness and Jamaican Me Crazy for it's unique, but subtle flavor.

Oh I had the opportunity to try Keurig coffee at my last internship. They are nifty little gadgets!

I do not have one, I'd like one though. I enjoy a cup of coffee every morning and I like one in the afternoon--it would be nice to make two cups separately to enjoy at different times

We have this at work - I would love to have this at home because it seems some days I make a full of coffee, take some to go, and Tony and Hannah don't drink any.

I've been having iced coffee the next day, but saw that they now have reusable mesh k-cups and you can use any coffee you want.
