A Coffee a Day Helps Me Get Through My Day #HelloKeurig LOVE coffee....I'm not supposed to drink much of it, but one cup of coffee a day helps me get through my day.

Hubby and I have been wanting a Keurig for a while now. We would always bring up the topic whenever I'd go visit him at work. He'd brew me a cup of coffee from the Keurig in his break room. I found it amazing that it would brew my coffee so quickly and that I could brew different types of drinks using a Keurig. I'm old fashioned so I'm used to the good ol' fashioned coffee maker, but I was really impressed that I could make iced beverages and hot chocolate!

When I was picked to receive a Keurig 2.0 from Influenster and announced it to my family. It was like Christmas for all of us! The Keurig 2.0 is so diverse that you can make beverages for the entire family! Caffeinated and decaffeinated! AND NOT ONLY THAT....YOU CAN MAKE A CARAFE! WOWZA! When I told the kids they could make hot chocolate and other special drinks from the Keurig 2.0 they were thrilled! Makes me want to have a Keurig party. Oooohhh I can even make adult drinks with it...just add some Bailey's to my coffee...mmmm. I promise I'm not a lush....
Check out the goodies that comes with the Keurig 2.0!

Getting ready to make some coffee! Mmm...

Beginner Problems:

Read the directions: Seriously, I'm not good at reading directions. If you read the directions, you probably won't have issues like I did.

Installing the filter: I had a hard time taking it off. It took a little time and patience and I was finally able to pull it off. You'll understand what I'm talking about when you do it.

Figuring out how to use the touch screen:

  • There are numbers on the K-Cups that you input on your touch screen before making your coffee. This will make your perfect coffee. 
  • Don't forget to choose "strong" coffee if you want it strong. 
  • Don't forget to choose 4 ounces, 6, ounces, 8 ounces, or 10 ounces before making your coffee.

Using the carafe: You have to put the carafe face forward so the front bottom part of the carafe is inserted towards the Keurig. Did that make sense? Don't forget to remove the bottom part of the Keurig before placing your carafe.
Plugging it in: It takes a couple minutes for the water to warm up if you're barely plugging it in. If you want to make your coffee super fast, make sure that you have your settings set so that it turns on before you wake up or a few minutes before you decide to make your coffee.

Why I Love the Keurig 2.0? 

  • The hot water feature: Add it to your instant ramen. Make oatmeal with it. Hot water with the touch of a button.
  • You can make yourself a cup of coffee or a carafe of coffee! You can also share with someone if you want too. I've been a little selfish lately. 
  • I love that there are over 250 varieties of coffee, tea and specialty beverages that include iced beverages! Oh yeah! Oh yeah! Oh yeah! 
  • You can personalize the settings to your wants and needs.  You'll see. 
Once I figured out how to use my Keurig 2.0 it's been a piece of cake! Making coffee has never been easier! Did I forget to tell you how good it's been drinking coffee from my Keurig 2.0? Delish! Coffee will never be the same again.....

I found a couple deals on Groupon for your Keurig:
