Win-It Wednesday: Keurig Single-Cup Brewer and New K-Cups!

by Tara Kuczykowski on November 10, 2010 · 2,350 comments

Join me every week for Win-It Wednesday. I’ll be posting a 24-hour giveaway to give you plenty of chances to win!


I've shared my thoughts on Keurig Single-Cup Brewers in the past, and I still love my Keurig just as much today.

I'm always up for trying new K-cup flavors, so I was happy to test drive the new Millstone and Folgers varieties.

Millstone coffee and Folgers Gourmet Selections K-Cup portion packs are made from the same high quality beans already available on-shelf in over 50 blends, and offer the exceptional taste that both brand’s passionate coffee drinkers have come to expect. The superior taste is the result of both brand’s precise "bean to cup" process that involves an intricate method of growing, roasting, and blending to ensure each cup of coffee delivers a unique coffee drinking experience.

I really enjoyed them, with the Folgers Black Silk K-cups being the one I liked the best. I like my coffee strong and bold, so this one was the closest to what I would typically buy. The Millstone Hazelnut K-cups were fun for a change of pace. They're perfect for an after-dinner treat in lieu of a decadent dessert!

Millstone and Folgers Gourmet Selections K-Cup portion packs are available in the following flavors:

  • Millstone Breakfast Blend (Fair Trade Certified)
  • Millstone Hazelnut Cream
  • Folgers Gourmet Selections Black Silk
  • Folgers Gourmet Selections Lively Colombian
  • Folgers Gourmet Selections Lively Colombian Decaf
  • Folgers Gourmet Selections Vanilla Biscotti

I try to give myself at least 20 minutes of quiet time so that I can wander and be calm before getting anyone else up and ready, or before even getting myself fully ready. Sure, I give up a little sleep, but it's worth for the ME time.

It's so much easier in the mornings we we get stuff ready the night before. A fresh cup of coffee is such a wakeup for me, too

I try to finish as much as I can the night before as possible. And if I know I'll have morning momnesia? I leave myself sticky notes like "Send Claire's Lunch" or "Today is Field Trip." A cup of coffee gets me going in the morning, and my husband too, it cuts down on those Momnesia moments!! :)

My only tip or trick is to have everything set-up and ready the morning before so you would just need to hit the button and can get the caffine is straight away.

Organize and set the timer on the coffee and get everything ready so that you just drink your coffee asap.

I barely manage my mornings but coffee keeps me awake enough to do more then grunt at my coworkers.

I subscribe to both the sites through Facebook and email with yours. The best way I have found to make sure my mornings aren't hectic is to have the coffee set to brew automatically 15 minutes before I get up and to make sure I get up 30 minutes earlier than a "normal" person would just so I can enjoy "my time" waking up with my cup of coffee.

RSS subscriber here. I read your site every day. I just don't comment often.
Our coffee pot is a Mr. Coffee we found at goodwill, but it still does a good job of getting us up every morning. We're drinking a pumpkin spice blend currently to celebrate fall. :)

The best way to make sure my mornings aren't too hectic (which can be a challenge with an 8 month old) is to have my coffee all set up before I go to bed the night before and clothes all picked out in advance.

I try to prep the night before, but caffine in the morning does the trick!

the trick in the morning for me is simply get up earlier than you think you need to; this keeps it not as hectic :)

I am not a morning person so nothing gets done until after the first cup of coffee. I do as much as I can the night before too.

I try to plan ahead, and if things do not go as I planned, then I improvise. I focus on not letting the small things ruin my day. Coffee gets me woken up and ready to go. I enjoy drinking it in the mornings with my mom and grandma.

I set out everyone's clothes the night before. That way no body is running around trying to find something to wear.

I have to have my morning coffee or nothing would ever get done :)
