What's all the Brew Ha Ha over @KeurigCanada #Keurig2point0 you ask ... #KeurigInnovation

Coffee Convenience reaches a whole new level with Keurig 2.0

If you know me, you know I'm a coffee drinker. 
I have the occasional tea but could live without it if I had to. Coffee not so much. 

I want one GOOD cup of coffee in the morning. 

That's how I start everyday. 

Cathy Thinking Out Loud with Coffee!

After 22 years of marriage my hubby still makes me coffee every weekday morning and leaves it on the bedside table. It's the little things that make life really great. This is why we loved our single cup Keurig so much. My husband gets up an hour before me and with the Keurig each of us gets a freshly made hot cup of coffee. 

But on the weekends we use the big coffee maker to make a pot of coffee. My son even indulges from time to time when there is a pot already made.

We have a single serve Keurig for weekdays, and a coffee maker that makes a full carafe for weekends. Each take up valuable counter real estate in our small kitchen. 
So I'm pretty excited to get the chance to say goodbye to those and hello to the Keurig 2.0. With the hot water on demand feature I can say goodbye to my kettle too!

All the convenience of a Keurig with the ability to make a carafe or cup with one coffee maker! 
You had me at Carafe

Here are some of the ways mornings are made easy with Keurig are:

1.) Cup or Carafe option!

2.) Ease of Use: 

  • With the touch screen step by step instructions it really is a breeze to use. 
  • Brewer maintenance alerts are great; reminding you when to top up water in the water reservoir, etc.
  • A 70 oz. illuminated easy to fill water reservoir.
  • Programmable controls.
  • Cup size options up to 10 oz cups.
  • Hot water on demand; perfect for tea, hot chocolate or Lemon cold & flu beverage if you are feeling under the weather.

3.) The Keurig 2.0 is quieter than my Single Cup Keurig or Coffee maker!

4.) Plus there are lots of brands and flavours to enjoy!

I truly love the functionality of the Keurig 2.0 and the cup or carafe option, and highly recommend it!

A final thought: I have been a Keurig fan for many years. I see the debate over whether Keurig should have the right to control and limit their brewing devices to Keurig only products and feel pretty strongly that like other brands such as Tassimo and Nesspresso they absolutely should. They are a business in business and are under no obligation to make their brewers compatible with other competing coffee suppliers. Having said that one of the reasons I bought my first Keurig was because they had a reusable filter. I wish Keurig would take the environmentally friendly lead on producing fully recyclable cups for their brewers. It is the one issue I have with the Keurig 2.0. Where the carafe cups are recyclable the single cups are not.

Yep, just me Cathy thinking out loud about coffee.
