ANNOUNCING THE WINNER!
However, our relatives are smart (or we like to say they are anyhow) and only visit, on average, once a year. What's the point of owning a big ass coffee pot when it's only going to get used once a year? I've gotta be honest, the other times when I've brewed a pot of coffee for just the hubby and I (We haven't started insisting that the little Imp drink coffee yet. We simply don't work her that hard to insist she be able to stay up 18 out of 24 hours in order to get her chores done...yet. I jest, I jest! Don't call CPS on me!), we each have a cup and I forget about it and a month later when we're all sitting around the breakfast table wondering just what the hell that horrid smell is? Eventually I discover that the coffee pot has been left sitting there for ages with a nearly full pot, and grounds that are now colonizing and threatening to overtake my kitchen. I would sigh as I held my nose, gagged, and then cleaned out the entire coffee maker. Wouldn't it be nice if I could just make a single cup of coffee at a time?
For the past several months, our lovely stainless steel coffee pot (the one I insisted we had to have, no less!), has served little more purpose than to accessorize with the other stainless steel appliances. Back in October of last year I was at my doctor's office when I noticed this thing that had replaced the coffee pot used to provide complimentary sustenance to those in the waiting room. I was immediately drawn to it it's sleek design, pretty blue lights and stainless steel exterior. I noticed the little cups beside it that reminded me of the ramekins of salad dressing one gets with a to-go salad at our local deli, except in these tiny sealed cups there existed several different varieties of coffees and hot cocos. These were the K-cups. The cute little K-cups made it possible to brew a single, gorgeous, hot, cup of coffee at a time. Ahhhhh. I was in love.
Thus I was introduced to the Keurig. It was love at first sight and I knew I must have one in my kitchen.
More than 6 months later, I finally have my own. The hubby got tired of me moaning and groaning about wanting to have one and drooling over the one in the doctor's office; the one I
Here I sit, months later, after discovering the awesomeness of the single-cup brewing system, bound and determined to turn everyone I know into a Keurigite. What better way to do it than by giving one of them away?
Want one? You know you do. Well then how convenient is it that I am going to give a Keurig Platinum Brewing System away?!?! But that's not all. You also get a three-month supply of K-cups and a $50 VISA gift card.
