Coffee is more hobby than beverage to me. I love experimenting with different beans and researching how it is brewed and served in other countries. When I have time, there’s nothing quite like grinding a quality coffee bean and plunging it through a French Press.
Lately though, I’m all about uncovering the best deals on the most unusual K-cup varieties.
FYI, I just tried the Bali Samsara and break out the band . This is one superior cup of coffee: bold and smooth with chocolatey undertones, yet no bitterness! Definitely will look for this one again!
My rule of thumb when buying K-cups (in retail outlets or online) is never spend more than .50 per unit and NEVER subscribe to coffee loyalty clubs or automatic reorder programs. Instead, I keep an eye peeled for groupons/coupons/deals and almost always finagle free shipping. Since losing my house up north and starting over down here, I’ve become a very savvy consumer. (Someday I’ll tell you how I turned Diet Coke rewards points into Omaha Steaks!)
And now I’m off to “make a Keurig” (as my kids and I say 😉 ), and check on the seeds I planted a few days ago! It’s been raining prodigiously: I hope they haven’t flooded out of their containers!
Until next time……
