How To Make The Best Coffee
I’m a coffee lover. There are really no other words. I. Love. Coffee. And my husband? He doesn’t! Bless his heart, the man only drinks water. No soda, no coffee, no tea, no juice [yes to adult beverages…but that’s a different category]. But, this poses a bit of an issue for our kitchen. It’s a pain to brew an entire pot of coffee only to drink one or two cups and throw out the leftovers. And it’s wasteful. Plus, it’s New York City — so space is at a premium. But there is a solution! And there’s an easy way to make the best cup of coffee at home.
As I’m sure many of you know, Keurig makes single serving coffee makers. Yippee! And you can find nearly every coffee flavor, and brand in pre-portioned K-Cups. They also offer a re-usable fill-it-yourself K-Cup which is my method of choice, and not just because it involves a little DIY. The perfect cup of coffee, from the comfort of your home.
The Keurig comes with a water filter, so the water you use for your coffee is guaranteed to be clean tasting. It’s easy to select the size you want, based on your coffee cup. In this case, I’m using my grandmother’s china which is a rather small cup [at least in 2014 terms], and I used the smallest setting. At a recent brunch, only two people were drinking coffee and this machine made it simple as can be to serve different flavored coffee to both people.
Plus the machine itself is not all that large – it’s a perfect size to sit comfortably on the counter top. But, it’s also not so heavy making it easy to bring out of the cupboard if you choose not to visibly store.
What kind of coffee maker do you use? Have you ever tried the Keurig? What’s your favorite K-Cup?
