Keurig K475 Review
As a mother to a 2 year old, an 8 month old and a blog; time and energy never seem to be on my side. So other than time management the obvious answer to my problems is of course something black and strong. Relax ladies! I’m not talking about a man, I meant COFFEE. My daughter ( 8 month old) hates to sleep. She’s up past 11 p.m. many nights playing, squealing loudly and completely ignoring the many cues that I’m half past exhausted. So clearly caffeine is something I turn to in order to get through the next day. I have to admit that coffee wasn’t always my first choice. If anything I’m a newbie to the world of caffeine outside of hot green tea and whip cream topped cappuccinos. But, when you have rambunctious kids tea is basically flavored water and better suited sweetened and poured over ice.
Making this new habit super simple with the help of a Keurig has been a blessing. I received a Keurig Hot 2.0 K475 from Influenster so I can let you guys know how awesome it is. Of course I have to be 100% honest with you guys when I share my reviews and that’s just what I’ll do.
Usually when you make coffee at home it goes two ways. Either you make one cup from a jar of instant coffee or you brew a pot of the same flavor. Well duh! However, with the Keurig K475 you can use the Thermal Carafe to make up to 4 cups of coffee at a time. Or with the use of K-cups go from morning French Roast, to a mid-day iced coffee and then to night time tea. Switching out the cups are easy, mess free and the clean up is just about non existent. No cleaning! The words every mom or otherwise busy woman wants to hear. Another thing I like about this Keurig is that there’s an option to make your coffee stronger. Along with other cute features like wallpaper options, touch screen display and a clock to remind you that it’s too damn early and you really should tap the strong coffee button comes a temperature setting. Maybe you like it really hot or maybe you need your coffee STAT and there’s no time to cool it down. Either way this Keurig carries all the features I need to keep my morning routine as easy as possible.
The K475 is big! It takes up a bit of counter space due to it’s 70 oz. water reservoir. It also takes a lot of water to fill. That may not be a legit con because it’s not as if the water goes to waste. Another con is the K-cups are pricey. Let’s have an honesty moment, I’m semi-broke with extra expensive taste. I’m also still buying the K-cups and complaining the whole time.
Sidenote: I have to mention that Keurig does offer reusable coffee filters for about $14.99.
” I love it when the coffee kicks in and I realize what an adorable badass I’m going to be today”
I love my Keurig and I think it’s time you get with the program. Seriously make your life easier, give the employees at Starbucks a break and get one!
