Why We Bought A Keurig - Ann Again and again Reviews

When it comes to making any kind of purchase my inner voice says “Don’t”. I am not someone that spends money easily and if the dollar amount is over $20 I have a tiny panic attack and ask ‘Do we really need this?’ My husband and I both drink coffee and tea so, of course, we have a coffee maker in our home, along with a tea kettle. Our Mr. Coffee is working just fine, so why spend hundreds of dollars on a bright and shiny Keurig I’ve been hearing so much about? The more I thought about it, the more I came to the conclusion that this purchase would save us money.

I take care of our home and I work from home as well. I know how many cups of coffee I drink a day so in preparation for our morning routine I’d scoop the proper amount of coffee into the filter the night before, set the timer and my coffee is waiting for me in all its glory when I wake-up. But, some mornings it turns out that my husband will be working from home. We make more, but most likely we find that there are at least 1 to 2 cups of coffee still sitting in the pot at the end of the day. Wasted money. We also host gatherings at our house and would find half a pot, or more, of coffee sitting in the carafe at the end of the night. The amount of coffee being poured down the drain was ridiculous, coffee is not cheap, and the waste needed to stop.

Sure, I’ve made coffee ice cubes.

And I’ve stored coffee in a thermos to pour over vanilla ice cream.



But honestly, the old, cold coffee is not used and gets tossed out. How much coffee do you pour down the drain? How much money do you waste? Since we’ve brought the Keurig into our home we haven’t brewed more coffee than what we want to drink. This is the model we purchased:

One point that concerned me about this system were the cups – all that plastic filling my recycle bin and the garbage dump. Too much waste! To fix this issue we bought My K-Cup, a reusable filter that you add your own coffee too. With this tool we buy our coffee from what ever source we please and don’t end up with massive little plastic cups filling our recycling bin.

Our Keurig has also replaced our tea kettle. Just push the “brew” button and *ta-da* hot water. This machine is also an energy saver due to not needing to leave our stove on to heat the kettle. Have you ever forgotten about having your tea kettle on only to find the water completely dissipated and the kettle burnt? “Someone” has done that in our home. Hmmm, I can’t remember who. Oh, it’s not important.


Since we’ve had this Keurig we haven’t been throwing our money down the drain. We’re really happy with it. (And I love the blue light showing through the water reservoir. So pretty!)

Do you have a Keurig? How’s it working out for you? Or, have you been thinking of buying one? If you have questions, I’ll do my best to answer :->
