Serving Fresh Gourmet Coffee One Cup at a Time

Keurig

KeurigEveryone across the nation has been talking about a new coffee machine that is becoming a favorite in homes and offices everywhere.  Introduced in 1998, they are the leading single cup brewing system in North America as they continue to provide happy gourmet coffee drinkers with a perfect cup, day after day.  Their innovative single cup brewing system lets people brew the perfect cup of gourmet coffee in less than a minute, without having to grind beans, measure coffee, handle filters or clean up. It's as simple as it gets.  Keurig is now a national household brand as their coffee machines allow consumers to extract a fresh and perfect cup of coffee each time.  Some may ask what makes their single cup brewing technology so great compared to all the other coffee machines available on the market?  Since Keurig believes coffee should always be served fresh like a gourmet coffee house, why brew coffee a pot at a time when we only drink it a cup at a time?  This question developed their revolutionary concept of a K-Cup® Portion Pack. 

KeurigOur Editor’s Pick is the Keurig Platinum Brewing System, which is the top of the line machine offering the best of the best.  This machine is sleek in its award-winning design with a polished exterior in a modern platinum finish.  Ideal as a home brewing system, this is perfect for busy families as the blue, backlit LCD display allows you to program water temperature, set digital clock, Auto On/Off and your favorite cup size.  It brews a perfect cup of coffee, tea, hot cocoa or iced beverage in under one minute at the touch of a button and offers five cup sizes.  This machine also accommodates travel mugs as the removable drip tray allows you to place your favorite travel mug in place of a standard mug.   This platinum system is also available in red or black.

KeurigThe ingenuity comes down to a small disposable coffee pod called the K-cup, which is a single preparation of coffee, tea, cocoa, cider in a sealed plastic cup that fits into the K-cup holder of the machine.  One the K-cup of coffee is placed, all you need to do is gently push the lever downward, which pierces the foil cover with a pin to start the coffee brewing process.  Discard the used coffee pod and that is all there is to it!  The beauty of the K-cup is that you can find any variety or type of coffee, tea, or cocoa you like as gourmet coffee companies like Wolfgang Puck, Van Houtte, Bigelow, and Newman’s Own are already offering a plethora of flavors and options.  Gone are the days of washing coffee pots and throwing away paper filters as this no mess machine gives you flexibility and options.

Looking at the details of this system, the full programmable feature is great because you don’t have to wake up and turn the machine on to heat the water for the coffee, it automatically turns on at the set time and all you do is place your pod into the placeholder.  In under a minute, you get a fresh cup of coffee that is just as, if not better than what you would get at a coffee shop.  Even better is if you want more or less, this system allows you to choose from four, six, eight, ten, and twelve ounce cup sizes.  The large water reservoir holds sixty ounces of water so that you do not have to keep refilling it day after day and is removable for easy cleaning.  The engineering behind the platinum system speaks for itself as its Quiet-Brew Technology keeps the noise to a whisper, making it ideal for early morning or nighttime drinks.

KeurigLooking to the flavors of coffee available, we selected some of our favorites as Editor’s Picks.  For those who prefer bold and strong dark coffee, we suggest Timothy’s Rainforest Espresso Extra Bold and Timothy’s Parisian Nights Extra Bold Coffee.  The Rainforest Espresso has asweet and rich taste to it and offers a strong punch to wake you up.  The ParisianNights Coffee is a roast that is thick and hearty with a deep, rich flavor.  KeurigIf you do not need the extra kick of caffeine in the morning but want bold flavor, the Barista Prima Coffeehouse French Roast Coffee is highly recommended as it uses the best quality of Arabica beans.  Barista Prima Coffeehouse roast masters excel at carefully monitoring the tenuous balance between roast and flavor that results in a daringly dark, smoky-sweet brew with a surprisingly light feel.

KeurigIf you enjoy flavored coffees, be sure to try Timothy’s Hazelnut Coffee, a combination of roasted hazelnuts and French vanilla cream, offering just the right amount of hazelnut sweetness to the richness of the coffee.  This is great as iced coffee or with a touch of half and half as enjoying the aroma of the hazelnuts in their pure essence is luxury in a cup.  Keurig is derived from the Dutch word for excellence and they stand behind their slogan “We strive for excellence as it is a part of who we are as a company.”  Keurig is fully committed to quality from start to finish as it is their promise to you.  “Be it our patented single cup brewing technology, our gourmet brands of beverages or our customer service, it's simply something you'll come to expect,” Keurig says.
