I participated in a campaign on behalf of One2One Network for Keurig. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.
As many of us are in full swing of the back-to-school chaos, the inevitable hectic morning routine is quickly approaching. I think I speak for a good portion of society when I say that being a morning person doesn’t come so naturally for many. And, quite frankly it only gets worse as you get older. I think that somewhere along the line we eventually get the hang of things but, for now, we drag along like zombies without help. Whether that help is coming from Mom and Dad dragging the older kids out of bed in the morning or even the little kids pouncing on top of us as the sun rises, we all need that little morning push. Then, of course, there’s that good ol’ morning cup of joe. Am I right?
Little kids seem to have it easy. They wake with the sun and couldn’t be happier for the new day’s arrival. It’s many of us in the middle folks – teenagers through middle-aged adults – that seem to need the biggest shove. Did you know that there have even been recent suggestions to start high schools at later times? It’s been proven that many in that age group perform and even think better later on in the day. However, it’s often the late high school students and the college-aged folks that we seem to ask the most of. Think about it. Not only do they have to go to school and work their tails off during the day but many of them are also expected to have after school jobs that they have to then schedule around after school activities such as club and community involvement and sports. I think that college students may very well have it the worst. On top of everything, they are just finding their way in the world while attempting the transition into adulthood and still retaining their youth. Heck, I’d be tired, too!
Having previously worked at a coffee shop, I cannot even being to tell you how often young people walk through those doors. They need that morning pick-me-up just as much as you and I but, let’s face it, the cost of a daily cup of coffee doesn’t exactly fit into a college kid’s budget. Surely one would say something along the lines of “just brew it at home,” but that statement in itself opens up a whole new can of worms.
Brewers; there are so, so many of them out there. Which is the greatest? Which is the best bang for your buck? Which one is right for you?
It is no secret that Keurig and their impeccable line of brewing machines have certainly become a household name. In addition to their outstanding line of products, they have a massive selection available for drinks as well. With a seemingly endless amount of flavor options available in their K-Cups, everyone can have THE perfect cup of coffee to start their day. Not all too into coffee? No worries! You can get your own morning kick with a delicious cup of tea – hot or iced! Toss in fun refreshments such as hot chocolate and apple cider and you’ve got yourself one heck of a drink and a glorious morning!
However, with many of their product options being meant for home use and brewing multiple cups such as the Keurig K65 Special Edition, it still boils down to the same old problem; being too big and bulky for small spaces such as college dorm rooms. Until now that is.
Please allow me to introduce to you the magnificent Keurig K10 MINI Plus brewing system.
I recently had the opportunity to try out this amazing system first hand. Our kitchen is extremely small and our current brewing system is a bit large for our counter space or lack thereof. While our original Keurig is perfect for entertaining, I am surely loving the K10 MINI Plus for everyday single use. Not only is it great for those quick needed jolts of morning energy but it is a fantastic space saving bit of awesome. It is absolutely the ideal solution for those chaotic college mornings.
First cup. Fourth cup – with Keurig, it’s always a fresh cup. The MINI Plus Brewing System brews a perfect cup of coffee, tea, hot cocoa or iced beverage in under two minutes at the touch of a button.
One of my favorite features of the Keurig K10 MINI Plus is that, despite its compact size, it offers the same three cup sizes – 6 oz., 8 oz., and 10 oz. – can still accommodate multiple cup types including travel mugs thanks to its removable drip tray.
In addition to already being a spectacular product in itself, the aesthetics of the design are beyond eye-catching. Let’s face it, dorm rooms tend to be small, dark, and dreary often leaving you with good reason to sleep in. Thankfully, that’s where Keurig comes in. On top of waking you up with the perfect cup of whatever your little heart desires that day, it brightens up your day in a whole new way – color!
While the beverages themselves may put a pep in your step, the conspicuous colors put a pop of vibrant fun in your day. Available in twelve exciting colors, there is surely something for everyone and for every style.
- Aqua Blue
- Cobalt Blue
My color has to be the Aqua Blue. Not only was this the color of the brewer that I got to try out but it is also my favorite of the bunch; serene yet exciting, me!
No matter what your needs are or what your style is, the Keurig K10 MINI Plus brewer is the perfect way to maximize your space and make the most of your mornings.
You can buy the K10 MINI Plus directly from the Keurig website as well from a variety of home goods retailers both online and in stores nationwide. It is currently priced at $99. The Keurig collegiate decal sets are also available at www.Keurig.com for $19.99.
