Keurig Coffee Maker

We recently purchased a Keurig Coffee Maker. My mother had received one for Christmas and we fell in love with it so we decided to get one for our house!! I absolutely love it!! We got the Special Edition Keurig because we found it on sale.

The specs on it are:
Three Brew Size Choices: 6 oz, 8 oz, 10 oz *
Removable 48oz. Water Reservoir
Programmable LCD Message Center
Removable Drip Tray
Blue backlit LCD & Water Reservoir
Chrome Accents
Quiet Brew™ Technology

I love that I don't waste a pot of coffee every day because some days we drink more coffee than others. It is convenient for us also because we both like different strengths of coffee. Hubby prefers darker, bolder tastes and I prefer lighter blends. You can also brew tea and hot cocoa with it. The K-Cups are not too expensive and we have found a few websites that carry the K-Cups cheaper than what you find in the store. There are so many flavors to choose from; everywhere from Butter Toffee to Extra Dark Roast to Swiss Chocolate Almond. My personal favorites are the English Breakfast Blend Tea and the Donut Shop Blend.

The nice thing about ours also is that it has a timer for the water reservoir. The water reservoir keeps the water constantly heated which is why it is able to brew instantly. However, you can set the time for it to heat up and shut down at certain times of the day, for example shut down at 9 pm and turn on at 4 am. I also like that we have 3 different cup sizes available to us so you can make your beverage stronger or weaker if you like.

I have read other reviews on the coffee maker and some people say their maker is loud. Ours and my Dad's are very quiet yet my mother's is a little noisy. I don't know if there is any rhyme or reason to it, maybe it is just luck of the draw but it isn't so noisy it would wake anyone up in your house or anything.

Lastly, we purchased the special K-Cup they have for people who may want to use their own coffee or tea. We did that primarily for when we have company or if we run out of K-Cups and need something quick. Hubby used it once so far and liked the coffee so much more than what he was getting out of our old coffee maker (that was only a year old). The coffee never has a burnt taste like you can get from coffee that has sat for a while and like I said before, no more wasting coffee!!!

If you plan on purchasing one, look for sales. They range anywhere from $99 to $250 not on sale. Ours cost $129.99 originally but we got it on sale for $99.99!! And when you are ready to buy coffee, check out the following sites:
