For many years I have loved coffee. My wife Abby loves coffee as well, particularly when I make it for her. We both have favorite coffee; Abby’s is Doughnut Shop brand, while mine is Folger’s French Vanilla flavored coffee. But of course, we don’t stop there, and entertain all kinds of variety. For instance, as I write this, Abby is drinking a vanilla cappuccino.
Readers might recall that we both love road coffee. Read about that here (link).
Several years ago, we bought a Keurig, a coffee maker that allows coffee to be brewed one serving at a time. Though it is considerably more expensive to use, it is very nice to be able to brew one variety of Abby’s coffee, then another for me or a guest. In the winter we can make one-shot hot tea or fruit tea, hot chocolate, or, when we are sick, can use it to make a quick cup of hot water to mix with powdered Emergen-C supplements.
At work, I usually make my morning jolt in a four cup Mr. Coffee, but friend and co-worker Carl Lewis brought his Keurig to our office soon after he started working for us last summer, and welcomed us all to use it, so I sometimes take him up on that, particular if he has an intriguing variety I want to try. Carl is responsible for my love of Starbuck’s Veranda blend. I always take my coffee black, no sugar.
With all that in mind, while shopping on Amazon.com the other day, I purchased a 60-cup Keurig K-Cup® variety box, which I tired once before, four years ago, and it arrived Friday. It sports a huge, amazingly fun variety of coffee choices. At the moment, I am trying a Donut Shop Blend brand “chocolate chip cookie” flavored K-cup. Before that I had a Double Doughnut Blend “extra bold.”
