Can you guess what my newest kitchen toy is by this first pic?
I was ruined the day I took my cat to her last vet visit. They had this little coffee maker in the waiting area that allowed you to brew your own cup on the spot.
Well, me’n coffee are BFF (fingers tightly twisted) so I was all up for that. And know what? It was the BEST cup of coffee I’ve ever had.
I went home that day jittery with knowledge that one just like it shall be mine. Honestly, I should have bought it that day because I drove myself into a crazed frenzy to get to that end of town again. I wanted that fix!
I even reasoned with myself that it was the ultimate move. I’ve been working really hard at eating well and if a fresh brew could keep me from grabbing the wrong thing, that was a good thing, right? I mean, what else is LEFT? 🙂
So I made it happen. 🙂
I am the proud owner of an itty bitty Keurig one cup at a time coffee maker.
And with this thing comes with these crazy little portion packs by the dozen.
Isn’t this crafty of me? My son’s hot chocolate sits under the sugar dispenser.
Yes, stainless creamers are EXCELLENT sugar dispensers. Easiest lids to flip open ever. They look industrially cool too. And all this fits in the cutest little antique cheese box on earth.
And that grass? It’s cat grass from the pet store. They were giving them out for free when we were there and gave me two. Pretty cool stuff! I’d love 50 of them if they didn’t grow. Or die.
So do I love my little Keurig?
Yes! And no…
great for both son AND I
deadly easy and fast to whip up a hot cup of whatever you wish
expensive if you like more than one cup at a time (only 2 a day total for me anyway)
doesn’t make lattes like some others do
small cups only
This is all I get for one cup. It’s half full. Really.
I started brewing it for full cups and it tasted like brown water so I halved the water. Perfect. Except for the quantity.
It works better if you choose a stronger coffee. So that’s what I’ve done. Now I get about 3/4 of a cup. 🙂
I hadn’t realized the vet used tiny paper cups… that’s why it was so good.
At first I felt sorry for myself as it really wasn’t enough. But once the ‘stronger’ brew kicked in, it really kinda was enough. And with a larger pot, I never really enjoyed the 2nd cup all that much anyway. The first was always the charm.
I decided to keep it after all. My counter space has doubled, the coffee’s always super fresh, and it’s easy enough for my son to whip up what he likes too.
And… I don’t drink as much coffee as before, which is also a good thing. 🙂
