I have never been a fan of coffee. I don’t mind the taste– I sometimes enjoy coffee flavored ice cream or chocolate. It is the fact that it is hot liquid that gets me. I hate any hot drinks. My friends never understood how I could dislike hot chocolate or hot apple cider. But I do.
People tried to reassure me that my tastes would change once I got to college. That I would stay up so late that I would need to start drinking coffee. They were all wrong.
However, I know a lot of my fellow college students could not survive without coffee. Having your own coffee maker can be great, but most students can’t drink an entire pot of coffee. That is why a lot of my friends swear by the Keurig single-cup coffee maker.
I have tried coffee made from my boyfriend’s Keurig. I feel guilty not finishing my cup, because the K-cups that are necessary can be expensive. So I have powered through both times he’s made me a cup, thinking if I tried some different flavors I would like coffee more.
That’s why I was so excited to find a refillable K-cup, EkoBrew. I bought it for him for Valentines (and he bought me a Pasta Boat–we are so romantic) and he has been using it ever since. He loves being able to choose whatever coffee he wants and not having to buy the expensive K-cups. And I feel better trying some of it and then promptly throwing it out. If you have a Keurig, I highly recommend checking out the EkoBrew!
