Keurig makes single-cup brewing systems, so instead of making a whole pot of one kind of coffee, you can actually make single cups of any flavor you want and in less time than it takes to brew a pot. My first Keurig brewer was a very simple one. (I got it about 8 years ago, so I'm not even sure it exists anymore.) It allowed me to get rid of my little 4-cup coffee pot, effortlessly make a cup of coffee before work each morning, and have a variety of flavors of coffee on hand for guests. I loved the convenience of it.
When I moved in with Jeff, he already had his own Keurig brewer and it was a little newer than mine, so we retired mine and used his for a while. Eventually he bought me the Breville Keurig brewer as a gift, and we've been using that one ever since. Our current brewer allows us to brew four different size cups of coffee. It's also programmable, so we have it set so it's ready to go when we're ready for our morning coffee. If we have a second cup in the afternoon, we simply turn the machine on, and it's ready to brew soon after.
I have long been a fan of Keurig and drink a cup of coffee from our brewer nearly every day, so I was excited when I heard that Keurig had opened a store in the Burlington Mall, where you can actually go and see their products and hand-pick which K-cups you want to try (as opposed to ordering a box of all one kind online). I was invited in to visit and tour the store before Christmas.

You can also find the full line of Keurig brewing systems in the store, from the K75 Platinum to the Vue to the Rivo to the Keurig MINI. The Rivo makes cappuccinos and lattes. And the MINI comes in an array of colors and is even sold with college logos. The store is designed so that you can try the different machines and even sample beverages right there.
If you have a Keurig brewer and want to try some new beverages or if you've been thinking about getting one and want a chance to check out the different brewing systems, a trip to the store is definitely worth it.
Have you used a Keurig brewer before?
Keurig provided me with transportation to and from the mall, sent me home with coffee samples, and sent me a new Keurig brewer. As always, all opinions are my own. I have been a fan of Keurig for a long time and have been using their products for years.
