Top Ten {Tuesday} Why I Love My Mini Keurig

Top Ten {Tuesday}

 Why I love my Keurig Mini

1. I can make one cup at at time. Obviously, Kuerig has cornered the market on the one cup at at time market. I am all for it. I don't need a pot of coffee. Though, I pass no judgement for those of you who do.  Please, for the sake of the rest of us, indulge.  ;)

I think I love coffee more for the aromatic benefits, the cream and sugar sweetener and the routine of it than anything else. Is that so wrong, I ask?

2. When I do have more than one cup a day, I can change flavors easily. Raspberry chocolate truffle for one cup and hot chocolate for the second.

3. And speaking of hot chocolate . . . My kids don't know it yet, but I can make hot chocolate with my new Keurig.  I'll whip out that little gem of a treat on a special day sometime soon.  It's even easier than the packets and the microwave technique.

4.  There's hardly any commitment.  I recently discovered that some flavors come in three packs.  I can try a new flavor and not feel like I am obligated to make an entire bag (even though hate it) just because I spent $8 on it.

5.  Dunkin Donuts coffee.   Yes, they have DD coffee in K-cups.  Hey, America runs on it.

6. I can always find great deals online.  Try Coffee Outlaw.

7. The machine stores away easily.  This can probably be said by anyone who owns a coffee maker.  But that doesn't make it any less convenient for Keurig owners.  And this is a deal breaker in my 800sq ft apt.

8. I don't generally like bold roast coffee, but I found that by brewing 2 cups of coffee from the same K cup, mixing them and then making iced coffee from it turns out pretty good.

9.  The prices on K-cups may be more expensive per cup, but they have come down in price over the last couple of years.  That is something to be joyful about.

10.  I no longer have such a great urge to splurge on coffee house coffee.  I get a great java brew right at home without the price tag.

Counting it all coffee lover's joy,


  1. The Keurig sounds awesome! I really need a new coffee maker so I stop buying so much coffee at the store. I am a huge fan of Starbucks bottled coffee, but it is so expensive.

    Thanks for visiting my blog. I am a new GFC follower and liked you on Facebook.


  2. I love my new Keurig that I got for Christmas! I was going to list the ones I agree with, but it's pretty much all of them! :) but especially 1, 2, 4, and 8! Can I just steal your post for my next Top Ten?!??! :)

  3. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I have a friend who has a Keurig. I'm going to pass this post along to her, as I think she'd enjoy the advice. God bless!!!

  4. Thank you so much Jessica for your likes and for stopping by to comment.

  6. Julie, why not? I like to share! lol Just change up the numbers or something so Google doesn't freak out!

  7. Thanks Layla for sharing my post!

  8. We have thought about buying a Keurig, but can't make the plunge. Maybe if I drank coffee I would be more apt to do it. My husband does, but very little. But, it seems like it would be nice for things like hot chocolate and green tea.

  9. Angie,
    I TOTALLY understand! I wanted the mini because of the lower price and smaller size. It was hard to justify the price just as an everyday purchase, but since it was a Christmas present, it was a bit easier.

  10. I LOVE MY KEURIG! I’m addicted to coffee, but I was spending way too much money at Starbucks… here’s my Keurig story: www.weartostandout.com/blog/keurig xoxo, WearToStandOut
