I love many different coffees! Whether it is brands, varieties, styles, etc., I’ve got to have it!
I love mine with French Vanilla Coffee-mate Creamer, this is my go to coffee every morning, I just can’t start my day without it! Literally! I am NOT a nice person until I’ve had my first cup every morning! Haha
I love a good Vanilla Cappuccino too! And when I’m out and about I just gotta have a good Caramel Frappe! And every fall, I must have the Pumpkin Spice! See? I told you I love coffee. How much do you love your coffee?
100% Columbian is the best for a medium, rich cup of coffee. I don’t like weak coffee, I need to be able to taste and smell that rich aroma scent! My favorite 100% Columbian coffee is the Folger’s brand, but recently, while trying to cut back a bit more, I tried the Great Value brand of 100% Columbian, and to my surprise it is pretty good too!
I decided to try a sample pack of 3, that you can get at Wal-Mart for $1. That’s when I realized they were pretty good and my budget would be happy with the price difference. Here is a price break down comparing the Folger’s Columbian K-Cups and the Great Value Columbian K-Cups.
Folger’s 48 K-cups: $.61 per cup at Wal-Mart or $.53 per cup at Amazon.
Great Value 48 K-cups: $.33 per cup at Wal-Mart.
The difference is almost half the cost! I’ll take that savings!
Now, I love coffee so much that I have tried countless flavors of coffee. Ya know, like the holiday flavors or variety packs and such (I ask for these as Christmas gifts). Some are awesome, some are ok, but other’s are just plain horrible!
I have a regular Black & Decker coffee maker and I have my Keurig. My Keurig is the best non-personal Christmas gift I have ever gotten without a doubt! With this awesome machine, I can try all these coffee’s one cup at a time (perfect when trying all these holiday flavors they seem to be coming out with as I mentioned earlier).
Yes, as you all probably know by now, I live on a budget, a very tight budget. However, coffee is my one and only splurge that I cannot live without! Oh, and the occasional bottle of wine. Haha, but this post is about coffee!
Anyway, being on a budget is where my Keurig comes in. Have you ever thought about how much you spend on a daily cup of coffee you grab on your way to work everyday at your local coffee shop? I bet it’s more than $1 a day and that’s low balling it, I’m sure! I know I pay like what, $2 for a Frappe at BK or McDonald’s? And that’s just a fast food joint!
Back to the Keurig. Even when buying a more expensive brand, I can make a good cup of java for less than $.65 a cup. So in all actuality I’m saving money by using my Keurig. Quality Coffee Shop coffee’s for a fraction of the price!
Do you have a go to coffee or a favorite coffee? Do you own a Keurig or Single Serve Coffee Maker (I know other companies make them now too)? But I’m on year six, I believe, with my Keurig, and it’s still going strong, so I have a lot of faith in the Keurig brand!
And now there are some pretty awesome colors to choose from! When I got mine as a gift, it was when they first came out, so there was only black and I think silver. And so many new versions, some of the new ones are pretty awesome!
If there was “K-Cup” subscription service, I would probably ask for that as a gift too. Haha I’m pretty sure I’ve seen them for regular coffee, so why not for K-Cups, right?
