Bought a Keurig 2.0

May 2nd, 2016 at 12:09 pm

I've never owned a coffee maker in my life. DH rarely drinks coffee, but the kids (19 and 16) do, and they were spending their money on Starbucks. I did not want to see that when they can make a decent coffee at home. Of course we got the refillable pods, not the individual little cups.

Since they would only make one cup of coffee in a given day it seemed like a good option, but it can also make a pot (if you buy their carafe), so if we have company once we move, we can make coffee. I might use it for making herbal tea infusions or hot chocolate.

I have to see the fact that we could get it in a color that matched my Kitchenaid and toaster was an added benefit. It was on sale for $119.99 so with tax it came to $130.43. I'd saved up and was waiting for a sale. We could have got a cheaper coffeemaker, yes, but weighing everything else, I think this one is best for our needs. Plus teal/turquoise. Sometimes pretty wins the day.

    We have a senseo we've had for years since DH is the only one who drinks. Costs us 25 cents a cup but well worth the savings. I don't drink coffee so days we have guests (ie our moms and friends) I make big pots. Also if DH is home all day on the weekend and feeling tired I'll make him a 4 cup pot. We buy the individual pods because he's very sensitive to the grounds from the refillable pod that we have. Even with regular coffee I have to put two liners so he can't get any grit. GRRR

    Knowing how you are about sustainability I was surprised at the title of your post! Then read further and a-ha! I forgot there are refillable options. Big Grin

    LAL--I don't drink coffee, either. I don't understand the appeal, but it is better than caffeinated soda for the kids, I guess.

    CJ--Yep, refillable. Otherwise the thing would not be in my house.

    I'm not a coffee drinker either - only use a machine like that would get here would be for hot chocolate. Smile
