First things first- I need you to know that I am not a big coffee drinking. With that knowledge, you might be asking yourself- “why am I taking at-home coffee drinking advice from a newbie?” Well, its because I have tried really hard to enjoy coffee and these are some of my favorite things that help to make the experience worth having. Lets get into it!
Keurig K-Express Machine
My original Keurig machine broke this week. It likely died of boredom since I use it like- once a month. Knowing that I can’t live without it, I ordered this new white one. The sleek white model is perfectly appealing for the coffee bar I will have it in, the water basin holds more than the machine I had before and this one was well within my budget at just under $60. This machine would make a great gift for someone else or for yourself- I’ll have it linked here. lol
My taste in coffee is very dependent on what is happening outside my window. On hot days, I prefer iced coffee and on cold, rainy or snowy days- you probably guessed it, I like it hot. This chilling cup fits into my machine and allows me to brew a hot cup quickly and be able to enjoy it iced cold within a minute. This cup would make a great father’s day gift and it is linked here
Java House Coffee Pods
For my friends who are on the go, these coffee pods are essential to have on hand. When my Keurig died this week, I was still able to have my iced coffee as planed because I had this concentrated cold brew in my pantry. Add it to iced or hot water for a great cup of coffee anytime. Great for traveling, in the office, camping- you name it! They have tons of different roasts and flavors linked here.
I am picky about ice. Gosh- you are learning so much about me today! I’ve had this ice tray for almost 6 months now and I just know someone out there needs it too. It makes the perfect small- but not too small cubes and when they melt- they do not taste funny like your freezer! I am forever making new trays and like that this container does not take up much room in my freezer. Get yours linked here.
24 Oz. Mason Jars with Lids
this is going to sound silly but since I switched to these mason jar- I drink far more during the day. It could be that it is aesthetically appealing or the fact that I can see how much I am drinking during the day but whatever it is- it is working! Use this for your favorite at home coffee drink or use it for water like I do. The two pack is convenient for both. I’ve purchased these many times linked here.
