The easiest way to make a great
cup of coffee
Powered by Mom’s Review
Earlier this month I had the pleasure to receive and review an Keurig Platinum Brewing System. We have never owned a Keurig or any coffee machine like this before so for us it was a very new experience. When our Keurig first arrived before we even had a chance to try it out my husband was convinced we didn’t needed a Keurig since we have an espresso machine. He also thought it would cost us a lot more to make coffee if we had to keep buying K-cups etc..
Well first I did my research and I asked you my readers on where to find some good deals on K-cups and boy did you all come through. I also learned from my readers that you can purchase a My K-Cup® for Keurig Brewers so that you can use your own coffee grounds whenever you want! When I told my husband that we decided to order one and we ordered some more K-cups so we could have a few different types of coffee to try out.
Well I have to say I absolutely LOVE our Keurig Platinum Brewing System! It is so incredibly easy to use and versatile. We’re able to make whatever coffee we want to have which is fabulous as a lot of times my husband wants an extra bold dark coffee whereas sometimes I want something a little lighter like a medium roast. That fact that you can do tea, hot chocolate and as I also discovered buy mocha mixes is simply heaven. All our choices and we don’t have to waste anything since it’s one cup at a time that’s quicker to make 2 cups or more of coffee than waiting for a whole pot of coffee that we wouldn’t drink all of anyways! While I like our espresso machine some days I don’t need a latte or am just in a rush and you all know what that’s like even an extra 5 minutes makes a difference so we would sometimes skip making our coffee because of that and buy one later in the day. That has not happened since we got our Keurig as we have it set up to turn on by a certain time in the morning so it’s ready for us to use and a minute later we have our coffee and we’re out the door.
Remember how skeptical my husband was about the Keurig? Well now he uses it even more than I do and hasn’t touched our espresso machine or regular coffee maker at all since we started to use the Keurig AND I noticed he’s trying out all the different types of K-cups including the tea that we purchased. It is perfect for him as he’s usually the one rushing out the door at the last minute, running late and then he’d buy coffee on the road but not any more!
I’ve also started to make lattes with K-cups even though we have the espresso machine because again it’s quicker, I microwave the milk while my K-cup is brewing and then I use this handy little tool I bought years ago to foam the milk it’s perfect and I have a latte made in 2 minutes or less 🙂 If you look at our first picture you can see the foam in the cup that I made with this too, see a picture of it below I’m sure you can find one like this at a lot of store for $10 or less.
Overall Keurig Platinum Brewing System gets a 5 out of 5 stars from both myself and hubby for ease of use, being able to have a tasty cup of java in record breaking time and versatility for making any kind of coffee, tea or hot chocolate we want. I don’t know how I lived without one of these before! I’m definitely sold on my Keurig and it’s never leaving this house 🙂
Tell me what’s your favorite coffee, tea or hot chocolate brand to make with your Keurig?
