For those unaware, September 29th is National Coffee Day (I’m checking to see if it’s recognized as a statutory holiday because there is no day of greater importance to us as a society). When my friends at Keurig reached out to me, they told me that they’ve decided (and I’m completely on board with this) to extend the celebration by dedicating an entire month to the thing that keeps us all from falling apart. I mean, hello? My body is 40% water, 10% sarcasm, and a good 50% caffeine. This celebration was made for me.
Keurig is a leader and innovator in single-serve coffee and, to celebrate National #CoffeeMonth, graciously sent me an exclusive calendar, giving me the opportunity to taste a different blend every day throughout the month and share that experience with the fine people reading this and those who follow me on social media.
I’m a creature of habit – a characteristic of mine that usually means I like to follow a routine. Because of that, I generally have the same coffee with me at home (old reliable, if you will). Van Houtte French Vanilla is my go-to for an early-morning pick-me-up or as a kickstart to my weekend. But, having the opportunity to try a new blend each day of September means I’m stepping out of my comfort zone and embracing the unique flavours of different brands. So far, I haven’t been disappointed.
Want to celebrate National #CoffeeMonth with me? The Keurig K200 Plus Series coffee maker is slim and sophisticated, making it the perfect addition to any modern kitchen. Even better? It comes in 9 different colours, making it easy for you to find the perfect one for your home.
If you’ve never used a Keurig before, getting your daily dose of caffeine couldn’t be easier. First, grab your favourite K-Cup. Day 1 from my calendar was Van Houtte French Roast.
Pull up the handle and pop the K-Cup into place.
Have your mug in position. If you’re like me, you have a cupboard of about 40 different ones waiting.
Push the handle down until it’s firmly closed. Select your desired volume of coffee and whether or not you like yours strong. When you’re ready, press the Keurig button and wait while your delicious blend brews right into your mug.
Sip and enjoy. I typically take mine with a splash of unsweetened vanilla almond milk.
