My mom recently gave us (well, she insists she gave it to David) a Keurig coffee maker, and I’m in love. I’m not a big coffee drinker, but I am quickly becoming one because it is so fun to use the machine. There are a ton of different coffees to choose from- I can even make tea. See Emeril’s blue coffee pods? Do you notice that Emeril is missing his right hand? It weirds me out… no matter how hard he tries, he just can’t clap for my brewing skills.
I’ve been making all of my teas and coffees over ice for a more refreshing beverage. I just select which coffee variety I want to use, pop it in the machine, and press the button that makes it brew. It’s really fun. In a systematic, aromatic kind of way.
I chose a tea this time around. I like watching how the hot tea eats away at the ice cubes as it trickles out of the machine. First, the tea bores a hole through the cubes. Then, the cubes start shrinking and float to the top of the glass while making a satisfying “ting.”
I know this sounds pathetic, but the coffee maker really brightens up my day. I never want to live without it! I don’t think the coffee maker will ever be un-exciting (even though I’m the same person who thought it was fun to watch my mom’s front-loading washer clean clothes through its windowed door). The drinks are too delicious!
Daddy and I did give it to David, but we don’t mind if he shares it with you!

I just came across your site & was reading you man chicken & your paella recipes & was just surfin around & stumbled on you kuerig post. I too love mine! My youngest daughter bought it for me for my Birthday a year ago Christmas & I am in love with it! I love flavored coffee & some teas, so I have lots of fun with it! My husband has a Bunn coffee maker that he uses for hot water & instant coffee. My daughter said she bought this for me so I am not drinking ‘old’ water! lOL
