01 FebHow do you take your coffee?

We take it one cup at a time. That’s because for our 3 year wedding anniversary Tom and I bought a Keurig Single Cup Brewing System. And we love it! We tried so hard to be good coffee making people with the lovely Cuisinart Coffeemaker we got for our wedding. We premeasured the coffee, added water the night before, set the timer, etc. etc. But it just didn’t stick. Brewing coffee never became part of our routine. Not even on the weekends.

But all that has changed. Now with the Keurig not only do we make hot, fresh coffee in the blink of an eye, but I have become a better wife. That’s because I make Tom’s coffee every morning so it’s the perfect sipping temperature when he leaves for work. I wonder if my one push of a button every morning makes up for all of the dinners he cooks or all of the times he has let the dogs out in the middle of the night or all of the Saturday mornings I kicked him out of bed to get me coffee from Dunkin Donuts. Umm, yup. We’re square.

Once we get through the 88 K-Cups that came with our system we will purchase a reusable coffee filter for both economical and environmental reasons. Tom may be on his own when that happens.
