Last Chrismas (2011), it seemed like everyone I knew got a Keurig coffeemaker. It was like the hot Mom Present. I tried to tell myself I didn’t need one or even really want one, which naturally just made my desire for a Keurig grow. I was good at holding out though. I didn’t cave and buy one throughout the year and only when my husband started drinking coffee regularly did we both start to think about buying one. We ended up getting one from my in-laws for Christmas (Thank you Craig and Kathy!), the Keurig B40 Elite.
I know some people are anti-Keurig because K-cups are more expensive than a can or bag of coffee. While that’s true, they’re still way less expensive than buying Starbucks coffee and I found an As Seen On TV product that has made the Keurig a perfect coffee solution for our house.
Cafe Cups (and I’m not being paid to write this about them, though if you purchase through the Amazon affiliate links, I get a few pennies thrown my way) are great for our family because they are reusable, washable (in the dishwasher), and help me reduce wasted coffee. Only making a cup at a time and not paying out the nose for it is a win-win in my opinion. There are four in the package, compared to the official one you can buy by Keurig (My K-Cup Reusable Coffee Filter) that has a single coffee filter. I bought mine at a drugstore for $10, the same price on Amazon.
The Amazon reviews are a little mixed, but I find them to be pretty stinking awesome. We will still buy the real thing, but for every day morning coffee, I’ll be using these reusable Cafe Cups!
Have you tried these? What do you think?
