Hot Beverage Indulgence #Keurig2point0hoho #PCLGiftGuide14

Indulge! Yes, I love that word 🙂

Definition:

in·dulge (inˈdəlj)        verb    1.allow oneself to enjoy the pleasure of.

I recently had the opportunity to try out the new Keurig 2.0 and I’d say the potential to indulge is pretty high!

This new brewer not only brews your favourite cup of coffee or tea but it can also brew an entire carafe too! The ability to brew a carafe works really well for my fiance and I as we like to fill our travel mugs every day for work.

I am constantly amazed at how technology continues to evolve. It’s like a mini spaceship! Ok, not really but it is pretty cool. Just look at it!

Keurig 2

What I Love(d):

– Ease of use – It seriously can’t get any easier, throw in the K-cup and press a button – DONE!

– Aesthetics – It’s pleasing to the eye and looks sleek.

– Numerous cup sizes available from 4oz to 10oz

– The ability to brew a carafe

– Auto brew capability

Areas of Opportunity:

(FYI – I never use the word weakness because continuous improvement is necessary for things to get better. Weakness denotes a negative connotation)

 – For some reason the bonus variety pack that was supposed to be included in the box was missing. As a result I had to buy K-cups and I’m still trying to find a store that sells the K-Carafe. I’ve tried Superstore and my local Sobeys.

– The 10oz size choice does not seem to fill our large mugs as much as we’d like.

– The variety of brands available/stated on the box don’t necessarily translate to what you can purchase on the Keurig Canada website. I believe there are more options for my American peeps.

Overall the Keurig 2.0 brewer will provide great functionality for what we need (once we get the K-Carafes goin). We will buy a few indulgent boxes of lattes and caffe mochas for those special days when we need a lil more than just a coffee. It sure would make a great gift! #Keurig2point0hoho

    Great gift idea for hubby

  3. December 5, 2014 / 12:13 pm

    Different colors.

  4. December 5, 2014 / 5:14 am

    It seems that it can already do pretty much everything now! I think it would be awesome to have a timer or something so that it brews your drink in the morning.

    Foam and steamed milk!

  6. Nancy J Montgomery

  15. Brandee H

    I would love a self cleaning feature. Or to be able to remove the pod area to clean it.

  16. Rebby
    December 4, 2014 / 12:06 am

    This might be crazy…but genius. A timer you can set for wakeup like an alarm where it autobrews your coffee while you wake up!

  17. December 3, 2014 / 9:44 pm

    I’d love to see a keurig in different colours!

    In a future Keurig I’d like to see it be able to predict what coffee I feel like having on any given day.

    I would love a built in frother… maybe a handy outside compartment for my sugar, an auto stirrer?.. I think I’m sounding pretty lazy at this point!

  31. Trisha Turner
    December 3, 2014 / 8:23 am

    I think that a great addition would be a milk frother hands down.

  32. stacey dempsey
    December 3, 2014 / 8:13 am

    Maybe I have no imagination but it seems it can already do everything . A milk frother would be handy and if it could do my laundry that would be really great lol

  33. D.Johnson
    December 3, 2014 / 6:31 am

    It would be nice to see it make meals.

  34. seham merzib

  35. nicolthepickle
    December 3, 2014 / 4:28 am

  38. Brenda Penton

    I’d like to see an ability to add milk/cream for specialty drinks or a milk steamer or frother built in

  39. December 2, 2014 / 9:48 pm

    Would love to see a variety of colour choices – also would be awesome if you could get a reusable pod.

  40. Suzie M
    December 2, 2014 / 9:48 pm

  41. Silvia D
    December 2, 2014 / 8:54 pm

  44. Amy C
    December 2, 2014 / 5:33 pm

    I would like to be able to hook it up to the tap. That way I would not have to keep filling it.

  45. Pmr
    December 2, 2014 / 4:54 pm

    would be fantastic in my home

  46. Jenny
    December 2, 2014 / 4:44 pm

    Being able to choose the temperature!

  47. mongupp

    Reusable pods

  48. Jenness M
    December 2, 2014 / 1:25 pm

    A stainless steel keurig would be nice!

  49. Erika E
    December 2, 2014 / 1:18 pm

    I’d like to see a larger size option, maybe 12 oz, for really big cups of coffee.

  50. Pam R.
    December 2, 2014 / 12:41 pm

    Maybe a way to mix cups? It’s pretty much perfect as it is!

  51. Jolie
    December 2, 2014 / 12:34 pm

    Would be great if the pods could be used with different machines, if it was equipped with a milk frother and if it came in different colours 🙂

  52. Joanne Saunders
    December 2, 2014 / 10:40 am

    I like to see the machine come in more colors.

  53. Judy Cowan
    December 2, 2014 / 10:28 am

    If I had to pick it would be the addition of a milk frother!

  54. Elaine G
    December 2, 2014 / 10:02 am

    Hotter temperature and to stop using aspertame in the specialty pods.

  55. Sofia
    December 2, 2014 / 9:46 am

    Re-useable packs so you could blend specialty flavours!

  56. heidi c.
    December 2, 2014 / 8:44 am

    The ability to froth milk would be great.

  57. Moe Bwell
    December 2, 2014 / 8:36 am

    Something that can mix 2 flavors together, and I agree, being able to froth milk or cream would be a great add on for hot chocolate or lattes, thanks.

  58. Nell C
    December 2, 2014 / 8:19 am

    I would love to see a milk frother to make my own Lattes and Cappuccinos at home.

  59. stacey h
    December 2, 2014 / 7:22 am

    i was going to say colour choices, but then reading the comments about a milk frother – i would love that too

  60. Amanda
    December 2, 2014 / 7:11 am

    Looks great – my only issue is I wish this came out when I bought my original special edition one. They keep making more and more models. They need to come out with an all in one, once and for all model and that’s it. Since I have one, single cups only, I’m not going to run out and buy this one until the one I have now breaks down beyond repair – despite this having more features. The last thing I need is another device in my kitchen.

  61. December 2, 2014 / 6:50 am

    It already has all I need and more! 🙂

  62. December 2, 2014 / 6:14 am

    If they stopped using packs there would be less waste

  63. Sara Rai
    December 2, 2014 / 5:16 am

    Love all the features. Can’t ask for more:)

  64. jenn
    December 2, 2014 / 2:18 am

    definitely a milk frother. that’s really the only feature it’s missing!

  65. Jonnie
    December 2, 2014 / 1:40 am

    I would love to see a feature that allows you to mix your own k-cup flavours

  66. Amie
    December 2, 2014 / 1:31 am

    I would like to see more colours , not just black , maybe they come in more ? I have only seen black anyway 😀

  67. December 2, 2014 / 12:35 am

    I would like to see them make all their blends available in a container from which you can fill refillable pods. Hopefully this would cut the cost and save waste.

  68. Erin W
    December 2, 2014 / 12:34 am

    I’d love that the 3.0 had the ability to grind it’s own beans

  69. December 2, 2014 / 12:31 am

    Milk frother!!

  70. Sharlene
    December 2, 2014 / 12:20 am

    We like our beverages very hot, maybe Keurig can up the brewing temp or create a mug that retains heat better as soon as the beverage is brewed! Also a sugar/milk function 🙂

  71. Debbie S.
    December 1, 2014 / 11:51 pm

    I A milk frother would be a great addition to the Keurig then we could make all kinds of tasty lattes!

  72. Krista M
    December 1, 2014 / 11:48 pm

    Stack 2-pods as a “flavor mixer” to combine 2 flavors together to create really unique blends.

  73. kathryn
    December 1, 2014 / 11:43 pm

    Foam! Steamed milk

  74. kelly young
    December 1, 2014 / 11:42 pm

    i would like to see a hotter temperature

  75. December 1, 2014 / 11:27 pm

    Would definitely love a larger “single serving” option, most of my travel mugs are 16oz. And more options for teas in the k-cups!

  76. suzi
    December 1, 2014 / 11:20 pm

    I like it to become compatible with tassimo and dolce gusto pods and then you could have the best of all worlds!

    • Holly
      December 1, 2014 / 11:22 pm

      That’s a great idea, Suzi!

  77. Holly

    Now that it can brew a carafe… I’m thrilled! Maybe more selection of coffee?
