If you are like many Americans, and even people all around the world,
you enjoy a morning cup of coffee. Coffee doesn’t just seem to be for
the morning anymore, however. The coffee industry has been
revolutionized in recent years. There are new coffee blends, coffee
drinks, coffee flavored treats and coffee energy shots now that were
unheard of just a few years back. Coffee is big business.
It used to be that there would be a coffee maker on the cabinet in most homes that brewed a pot of coffee and you sipped on it throughout the day. Now the types, makes and models of coffee makers are as varied as the types of coffee available. One of the more popular types of coffee maker to hit the store shelves in this coffee revolution is the coffee pod machine. Probably the most popular of these machines is the Keurig coffee maker.
Keurig has become a household name. Most people will recognize the product just by the name and no description is needed. The Keurig is a coffee maker that requires specially made KCups coffee pods that fit inside the maker to brew the coffee instantly. These coffee pods come in many different flavors of coffee, as well as teas, hot chocolate and cider. There seems to be a new flavor on the shelves every time I visit the store.
Many of the Keurig coffee maker models do come with a separate coffee pod that you can fill and refill with your own loose coffee, so that buying the pods is not required. Having several different flavors of the KCups does allow for some diversity in the coffee you drink. It is also convenient when you have guests in that different guests can choose different types of coffee without having to make up a new pot of coffee each time.
There is a make and model of the Keurig to meet any desire for a coffee maker. There are models that are very small, called a mini, that allow you to have a maker just about anywhere—dorm, office, even on your desk if you are a coffee fanatic. There are models that are more tailored for the home that would have more than one or two users. Then there are commercial machines that can hold a larger water volume and can serve many more people before refill of water is needed.
Many of the styles are fully programmable and you can choose cup size and other features. The Keurig coffee maker delivers a cup of coffee in under one or two minutes depending on the model you purchase. That is a quick cup of coffee, especially if more than one person is using the machine. The commercial models can even come with a place to deposit change in exchange for a KCup.
Depending on the space you have for a coffee maker, the demands of usage and the people the machine would serve, you should be able to find a Keurig that fits the bill. It is an investment, so be sure to research the different makes and models before purchasing. Maybe even try some of the coffees out at a friend’s house before you make your own purchase to make sure you enjoy drinking their KCup coffee flavors. I’m sure your friend would not mind…just one cup.
