The biggest thing in home coffee brewing over the last 5 years is the invasion of single cup brewers – most with a proprietary pod (the thing that holds the coffee grounds). The clear winner in this market is the k-cup format and the brewers by Keurig. Every major coffee brand now sells their single type or roast, blended and flavored coffees in a kcup that allows you to enjoy a fresh cup of coffee in about 3 minutes.
We’ve found a great freebie for you if you either own a Keurig brewer or are thinking of getting one. It’s The Ultimate Guide to Keurig K-cup Coffee Brewing, available in e-book format (pdf) from Cross Country Cafe, one of our favorite k-cup retailers. We hear that there is even a coupon included to help you save more on their already low prices.
If you’re in a household that includes a non-coffee drinker, don’t despair about getting a kcup brewer of your own – you can get great teas, hot chocolate/cocoa, chai, and even apple cider kcups too.
You can also check out the KCupBrewers blog for weekly specials, articles and comparisons of different kcup brewers.
