Last August I gave Earl a Keurig for his birthday, knowing his love of gadgets. At that time the Keurig seemed to be the coffee gadget par excellence, at least for simple folk. (This excludes three hundred dollar cappuccino makers and people who live in glass houses.)
It took a while, but we finally mastered the Keurig to the point where I almost prefer my own blend at home to schlepping to Starbucks® for a latte. And I schlepped for years. I haven’t done a cost analysis, but I believe Keurig saves me money too. It certainly saves me time since Starbuck’s is twenty minutes away.
Sorry Starbuck’s. I’m not deserting you completely, but I’m also hanging out with something new. I hope you understand.
