A few years ago the Keurig machine was introduced and began popping up in offices and homes all over the US. I would honesty be shocked if you told me you haven’t heard the name yet, because these appliances are very popular. I have wanted a Keurig for years now and was delighted when Staples.com gave me the opportunity to review one.
I was sent the Keurig OfficePRO Single-Cup Commercial Brewer for review. Now, let me first point out that this brewer is designed with the small office in mind, so many of the features were put in place specifically for that reason.
The features of this brewer include:
The Keurig is so easy to use. Plug it in, fill the reservoir with water, and turn on the machine. In less than a minute your water is hot and ready to go. Then, just pop in the K-Cup of your choice, (K-Cups are the coffees, teas, hot cocoa, etc drinks.) push the Keurig handle down, and your drink begins to brew immediately.
So, I know this will probably surprise you, but neither my husband nor I drink coffee. I know, gasp! We both hate the taste of it. Of course, a large portion of Americans do love coffee, so that means that most of our friends and family enjoy coffee. That presents a problem for us when we have visitors. So, for the past 8 years that we have been married, my husband and I have kept a small coffee maker tucked away in our cupboards. When guests come, I’ll pull it out, put it on the counter, then grab the coffee grinds from the freezer. Then, shamefully, I ask our guest to make their own coffee because I am clueless.
Well, now that I have the Keurig, we no longer have to do that! Our coffeemaker has been donated to the local thrift store. Now our guests can enjoy a wide variety of coffees, teas, and other great drinks when they come to visit. I use the Keurig on a daily basis to make myself Chai tea in the morning and hot cocoa in the evenings.
Although this unit is designed for commercial use, I think it works great in the home as well. We love our Keurig! I have absolutely no complaints about this unit and work recommend it for home use or a small office.
A big “thank you” to Staples.com for providing me with the product for review. You can find Keurig machines and many other great items for your home and/or office at Staples.com.
