I was not by any chance a coffee drinker until 8 years ago when I responded to a mailer from Gevalia. I joined the Club and I never looked back. With the club membership, they sent me a drip coffeemaker for free which I have perused for all those years and replaced a couple of times. I was introduced to exotic coffee from all over the world. It was fun receiving my coffee beans every 3 months.
For years, after those Single Cup Brewers were introduced in the market, I have contemplated on getting one but having access to Consumer Reports and the many reviews online, I was not ready to fork out that much money for a single cup brewer that would just die on me in a few months. However, a year ago, I caved in when Keurig introduced the Platinum B70 brewer.
So far, so good. My unit is still doing what it is supposed to do. I enjoy making hot or cold beverages. In spite of its convenience though, my coffee consumption has not changed. I’m still on one cup per day which is good.
The one good thing about having Keurig in our kitchen is the fact that my husband now drinks a cup of coffee with his breakfast on weekends. He was NOT a coffee drinker at all, or I should re-state it by saying, he DID NOT DRINK ANY hot beverage at all in his past life. Now he drinks, hot cocoa too. See? People change.
