The simplicity of a Saturday morning with Keurig and Van Houtte

The simplicity of a Saturday morning with Keurig
Don’t you ever keep me apart from coffee, especially if we’re interacting before 10am on any given day. I used to be the person who relied entirely on Starbucks and other coffee shops to get my morning fix. Then, when I moved to Toronto, the one thing I wanted for a housewarming gift was a Keurig Single Serve Coffee Maker. Not only did I fantasize about all the times I’d probably be curled up with a massive blanket sipping my “cup of joe,” but the convenience of a single serving at a time was too perfect to pass up.

Unfortunately for me, my life has become about 17x more hectic and crazy (especially Monday – Friday) in the last year, which has meant that my dreams of casually waking up and sipping my coffee on the balcony, while I watch the sunrise, have pretty much been shredded. However, what Keurig has given me is the convenience to sleep a little longer, take a few extra minutes in the shower, and get dressed slowly, without tripping over my own feet and falling (it has happened several times).

Now, instead of waking up, scrambling to get ready, and then missing the chance to have coffee before I get to work (which gives me significantly more mental clarity for my day), I can now pop a K-Cup in my Keurig, wait all of 30 seconds, and be out the door in less time than it takes me to brush my teeth.

If you had asked me a year ago, when I had received my first Keurig, which K-Cup brand and flavour was my favourite, I would have told you, without hesitation, that I would give my life for Van Houtte® Vanilla Hazelnut. Fast forward to now, and I’m head-over-heels in love with Van Houtte® French Vanilla. Both have just enough flavour to satisfy, without being too overpowering. They’re a great alternative to the flavoured drinks at coffee shops that tend to get their flavour from sugary syrups or toppings. If you like to keep a variety in your cupboard, like I do, shop from their assortments of Coffee Beverages and get free shipping on all orders above $70.

Saturday mornings are infinitely more enjoyable because instead of wasting time with an archaic pot of coffee, I can brew myself a cup at a time, take my butt to the most comfortable chair I own, and watch Netflix until I fall asleep around 8pm that night.

    I love coffee too, it’s the first thing I think about when I get up! That mug is adorable! I’ve never tried a Keurig…I may need to.

  • What a lovely post! I anticipate being able to enjoy my coffee on the weekends as well since I work a 9-5, so I can totally relate! It makes the moment much more enjoyable.
