Almost as important as all the supplies that I had to purchase for back to school, is the fuel I need to start my day. Now that the girls are a little bit older, I managed to get to sleep in several mornings during the summer. My body quickly adjusted to the down time. Getting back on track and used to getting up by 7am has been, dare I say challenging. But, with no other choice I drag myself from the bed every morning. And, run straight to the Coffee.
[Enter the Keurig 2.0.] Over the summer our house got hit by lightning and it fried our Keurig. Coffee is a HUGE part of my day. So you can imagine my dismay when I went to brew my coffee and realized that is was NO BUENO. Ugh!! My warranty was up, and I was hesitant to call Keurig. But, I thought maybe they could walk me through troubleshooting and or help me to reset it. The customer service rep was very pleasant and quickly pulled up my info and confirmed that my warranty had indeed expired. BUT….. She was willing to honor it anyway. (You can imagine me doing the Tootsie Roll, Cabbage Patch or whatever old.. dance you can think of here.) I expected her to say send it back and they would repair it or replace my existing model. NOPE… Boy, was I wrong. Instead she told me that they would be upgrading me to the Keurig 2.0 K350 Brewing System. I was super excited. And, got off the phone pleased.
But, then I remembered that I had actually looked into this model and that there had been a lot of chatter about it. I wont say that the chatter deterred me from purchasing it, as it was on My Later Wish List. But, it did give me pause. However, I certainly wasn’t going to look a gift horse in the mouth. My box came in the mail about three days later.(Fast Turn Around) The Keurig 2.0 comes with a Keurig Carafe, 6 K-Cup Packs, 6 Carafe Packs and a Water Filer Handle and Cartridge.
So, here’s my review: I actually have nothing bad to say about this model. It’s touch screen. It holds more water than the previous model. It can make a cup of a whole carafe. I never had use for the whole pot, but I imagine if I ever have overnight guests this would come in handy. Most people thought that they would not be able to use other brands of coffee since it had to have the official Keurig logo. Fact is that most brands carry the Keurig logo. I drink Foldger’s Black Silk. I haven’t found the K-Cups to be anymore expensive. They have an additional 8 K-cups in the package, so naturally it cost more but it balances out. You have more choices in how you want your coffee to brew, Strength, Size of Cups (4oz-10oz), or Carafe. You also have more choices as far as Set Up. You can choose your language, whether or not you want to keep it in Energy Saving Mode, your altitude, and even set a Water Filter Reminder.
