With Christmas around the corner I have concluded to only get a handful of people in my life gifts. If I’m honest, every year I am super lazy about the gifts I give. I am not one of those thoughtful gift givers. Although, this year I figured I’d finally put some thought into them, mainly my moms gift.
We are heavy coffee drinkers in my household and my mom does not start her day until she’s had her cup. She’s bought electronic coffee makers before and all, but she always goes back to her traditional stovetop coffee maker, or as we call it, La Greca, to make her coffee.
I figured I should get my mom one of the latest Keurig Coffee Maker models as they have become one of the leading companies to modify coffee making at home. They have over dozens of models to choose from. The 2.0 and forward models even have a touch screen monitor. Although, sometimes I feel like modern things don’t last as long as more traditional models, but I figured maybe she’ll like it.
|Greca Coffee Maker||Keurig Coffee Maker|
|Coffee Smell all over the house when brewing||Doesn’t require to refill water after every use|
|Lasts a very long time||Reviews indicate 2-3 yrs max (insurance required)|
|Brew up to your liking (coffee can burn)||Strength control & done in 1 minute!|
|$ Inexpensive||$$$ Expensive|
Those are just some of the main things I care about. But, I must also think about the coffee itself. Luckily, our favorite ‘Cafe Bustelo’ does come in K-cups. Research indicates buying a pound of coffee in K-cups equals about $50 when a pound of ground coffee is just $15. Over triple the difference! Luckily, ground coffee can still be made in a Keurig. Depending on the model bought Keurig may provide a reusable coffee filter that we can add our coffee too in the shape of a pod and voilà!
(Hopefully this isn’t a fail!)
