My love affair with my Keurig – Giveaway!

It’s no secret that I’m addicted to coffee.ย  And yeah, that whole giving up caffeine thing?ย  That was shot to hell after about two weeks.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Luckily I haven’t been getting caffeine headaches recently, so I guess that short time period did something good for me!

Anyway, a few weeks ago I was scrolling through my reader as usual and came up to My Baking Addiction (do you read Jamie’s blog? If not you should start immediately, because she has some AWESOME recipes).ย  As usual my interest was piqued immediately, but this time it wasn’t because of a delectable, delicious recipe.ย  Jamie had become a Keurig “K-cup Ambassador”, and had begun a relationship with Keurig, much like the one I have with Nintendo.ย  Well beyond being jealous as all hell (because I love me some Keurig), I needed to find out IMMEDIATELY how I could become a K-cup Ambassador as well!ย  So I reached out to the brand directly, and although they had finished selecting their ambassador program, they were nice enough to send me a Keurig of my very own to review!


So shiny

I already knew I would love it. Dave was hesitant, because in his mind we already had a coffee maker, so why did we need this thing?ย  He clearly was not aware of the INSANE AMOUNTS OF AWESOMENESS that was to come when the Keurig B60 Single Cup Brewer showed up in the mail (with a whole bunch of K-cups to try)!ย  We’ve had a Keurig at work for awhile, and it’s where my love affair began, but the brewer I was gifted with is far superior to the one our office has, and it’s super fast!ย  It takes no time at all to heat, and begin pouring away in to your mug of choice.ย  (I liked to use my special Brewed Over Ice tumbler I received awhile ago.) I also love that I don’t have to make an entire pot of coffee when I just want one cup.ย  I never drink more than a cup when I’m at home, so for me, it’s a waste.ย  (Not for Dave.ย  Dave would stick a needle into his veins to intravenously inject the coffee if he could.)ย  And the Brewed Over Ice part?ย  Is the best! I’m not quite sure how the Brewed Over Ice K-cups are different from the regular cups, but it all tastes good, so I can’t complain!



And here’s where the excitement comes in. Keurig is amazingly awesome (as you’ve already learned) and is letting me give away a Keurig B60 Single Cup Brewer to YOU.ย  (I KNOW!)ย  This bad boy is about a $150 value, and I can attest to it’s awesomeness.ย  I’d say that I’d sing it’s praises, but trust me, no one wants to hear me sing.

(stealing some of this from My Baking Addiction):

  1. Alas, the Atlantic never fails to disregard my love for coffee (and free things in general). But I shall be sure to make use of your new coffee maker…I might even make Dave a coffee (one day!). x

  2. my favorite flavor… Original Donut Shop Extra Bold Coffee

    mainly because it has cute packaging ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I follow you on Twitter

  4. I like you on FB

  5. Not being able to have caffeine has been torture… (it’s only the fact that I know how much pain I will be in if I have it that keeps me from it… sadly, pain > enjoyment.)

    However.. I LOVE that the Keurig has a decent small selection of decaf options AND I could do teas in it! (Also, if I ever have company who’d like coffee, it’d be so much nicer to have this so there’s only as much as my guests need rather than so much caffeinated temptation sitting RIGHT in front of me… yeah.)

    … so fav flavor? I’d say I really want to try any of the decaf teas. (Celestial Mandrin Orange Spice? Yes please! … and luckily, most teas have a low enough caffeine count that I’m okay with just one cup.)

  6. .. and I already follow you… on at least two twitter accounts…

  7. … and I like you on FB…

  8. I’m following you on Google Friend Connect (promise I’m not stalking you. I just want that machine! ๐Ÿ™‚ )

  9. hands down my favorite is donut shop extra bold coffee. the chai tea latte is a close second. i think it seasonal, but there is a pumpkin spice out there and it is delicious. sometimes i make that and the chai and mix them together. i know it sounds kind of funky, but its honestly a million times better and healthier than the starbucks pumpkin spice latte.

  10. I have NEVER tried these before, but I’ve been ogling the machine for ages!

    I want to try to make iced green tea with the Twinings of London Green Tea cup.

  11. I follow you on Twitter!

  12. I follow via Google Friends Connect.

  13. I follow on Facebook!

  14. We used to have a Keurig at work and it was the saddest day when we suddenly stopped having it. I used to have a caramel vanilla in the afternoon if the day was really rough.

  15. Oh my, there are so many choices! I think my favorite would definitely be the Cafe Escapes Chai Latte — it would be wonderful to make them at home every day!

  16. I follow you on Twitter (I’m @princesscait).

  17. And I follow you on Google Friend Connect.

  18. And, I “like” you on Facebook! ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. Umm I’ve been lusting after a Keurig of my own for AGES. I just haven’t been able to allocate any funds to replacing things I already have. (Meaning, I already have a coffee pot. It works fine, I guess. I should probably spend the $$ on school books and bills and gas. Epic sads.) It’s one of those purchases that I tell myself, when I have a real job, I’ll buy one.

    If I had a Keurig, the first flavor I would buy would be the Island Coconut Coffee. I’m currently obsessed with all things coconut!

  20. PS I follow you on the Twitter.

  21. I have the same problem with coffee. I have kidney stones so if I drink more than one cup a day, I’m in bad shape. So I waste SO MUCH because I live alone and even when my boyfriend is here, he doesn’t drink it.

    I LOOVE anything vanilla so the Caramel Vanilla Cream sound DEVINE. Butter Toffee What?! And I love that they make hot cocoa too!

  22. I’ve been following your lovely face on twitter for quite a while now. ๐Ÿ™‚

  23. I Liked Perks of Being a JAP on Facebook ๐Ÿ™‚

  24. And I’m connected via Google Friend Connect.

  25. I’ve been dying for a Keurig! I have a pod coffee maker (not a Keurig) except it dying and I need to upgrade. It’s hard for me to have a favorite flavor, since I don’t have one I’ve never actually tried any. I’m always a fan of French Vanilla flavored coffee, but some of the others like Raspberry Chocolate Truffle sound amazing!

  26. And I’m a follower on twitter
