Coffee is a part of my daily life and in an effort to become more money savvy I have been buying coffee and preparing it at home. I do have a Keurig machine which brews a fresh single cup. This is perfect as I am the only person at home who drinks coffee and I don’t waste half a pot. But finding the best brand for me was a challenge.
When I ran out of K cups I headed towards my local Walmart to buy more. The Walmart is located in a shopping center that is near work and it’s convenient to get to during the day if I need to run an errand. I headed out midweek to make my purchase and apparently everyone had the same idea.
|Walmart was PACKED!|
I was lucky to score some Maxwell House single cups. It seemed as if they were the most popular at my Walmart! As I browsed the aisles I wondered how I could make my coffee more than my morning wake-up.
I checked out the variety of creamers and decided that I would create concoctions instead of “just having coffee” and added creamers and whipped cream to my purchase. Heading towards the register I took a detour through the fresh food aisle for inspiration for my perfect coffee mates.
|Who should flavor my cuppa?|
The ladies at the checkout area were very friendly. I chatted with them about coffee and we had a brief conversation about our preferred way of preparing coffee. One lady said she didn’t, GASP drink coffee and another said she was all about a milky cup.
The next morning I woke early to enjoy the fist cup. Piping hot and fresh, laced with hazelnut creamer. This was a perfect way to ease into my busy day. For my second cup I added soy milk and flavored syrup as my teen, who is allergic to dairy, likes to steal a sip of my coffee.
After work, and my work out, I tried an iced coffee. Instead of my normal brew of nine ounces I set my brew to five ounces, added a hand full of ice cubes, creamer and a (large) dollop of whipped cream.
|Iced coffee, refreshing on a warm day!|
I believe I have found an alternative to coffeehouses.
In the past, before my single cup brewer, I preferred to use Maxwell House Coffee however I would find myself trying to drink the whole pot or dumping half of the pot. With the single cup brewer I can make what I want, when I want and still have that flavor I enjoy. Compared to other brands, Maxwell House has a smooth taste, it isn’t bitter and is a pleasure to inhale.
Enjoy a cuppa on me and remember…your coffee, your way.
