I’ve been a coffee lover ever since high school when I had my first cappuccino made from a mix in the school cafeteria…and even though it wasn’t “real” coffee, it was enough to get me hooked. During college, my love of coffee became less about the taste and more about staying awake through many a late-night cramming session. While staying awake (usually) isn’t my main goal anymore, I’ve grown to love the taste of coffee even more, and especially the feeling of comfort I get when I’m holding a warm mug and inhaling its delightful fragrance. To me, my favorite part about my Keurig is that I can always have my coffee in the morning no matter how quickly I need to get out the door. No more waiting around for the coffee to be done – or worse, not having time to make any at all – I just pop in a K-Cup portion pack, brew my coffee, and I’m on my way. And, if I had to pick a second favorite part, it’s that all of their decaf varieties taste like regular coffee. I can’t tell you how many brands of decaf coffee I’ve tried and hated…that is until I came upon Green Mountain Coffee’s decaf breakfast blend. Now I can have my after-dinner cup of coffee and really enjoy it!
All that said, it should come as no surprise that when I was approached and asked to be a Keurig K-Cup Ambassador, I jumped at the opportunity. A chance to promote my favorite brewing system, and to experiment with recipes using tons of delicious flavors? I’m totally there. I’ll also be providing you with monthly promotion codes – you may have seen me post the first code on Facebook, but now I’m posting it here as well to make sure that you get a chance to use it before it expires in just a couple days on June 10th. The code AM0013-3596 will give you 15% off anything from the greenmountain.com store, as well as free standard shipping on your order. I’m eyeing their iced coffees myself…I’ve already been using my Keurig to make iced coffee like crazy lately, and I’m thinking that the french vanilla variety is a must-try!
What about you? Do you have a Keurig? What’s your favorite K-Cup portion pack?
