Keurig Carafe Reusable K-cup - Review

This past Christmas I received my first Keurig. I have tried coffee out of them, but I never had one. I swore I didn't need one. Now I have one. I swear I cannot live without one. You know that list, "What's the one thing you would bring on a stranded island"? Well, this is one of the many one things I'd bring. Now that I've got my only beef with them figured out.

Those cups you buy and just pop in and dispose of. Those come in carafe or cup sizes. But when we'd put one in, we'd only get the option for one of the 6 brew setting options. Talk about peeve me off! So I could choose 4, 6, 8 or 10 oz. cup of coffee. PA-LEEZE people. I use jumbo mugs. So I'd choose the highest one, 10 oz, then I'd run 4 oz of hot water through to fill my cup. This was not going to fly. I might have even returned it.

Then I popped a carafe size in. We had 2 of them. The first one only gave me the carafe size option. The second one, opened up ALL 6 options. HOLY WHAT !  I could choose my jumbo or travel mug size 14 or 16 oz.  Now, NOW I'm in heaven. Except that we used it, so my one time of splendidness is gone. So now what? I have to search the stores cups to find which ones open which options. Have you seen the aisle of these things at Bed, Bath and Beyond? It's like a whole wall full of them. No thanks. Don't want to learn how to do it. Too complicated. By the time I get through this, and have my measly 10 oz of coffee, I'm now ready for a gosh dang Midol !! My coffee should be easy and a smooth transition in to my day.

I searched for the reusable cup. The cup size and the carafe size. That's when a light bulb went on in my pea brain. I wonder, IF I get the carafe size, will it or will it not allow me all 6 brew options? Holy Mother of Pearl yes it DOES people !!! IT DOES !!!!  Then I can just adjust the coffee of my choice or freshly ground coffee in the basket according to the size I will select. Same basket, same options, every single morning. Hallelujah.

I've had no grounds in my coffee. Around the lid there is a thin black rubber seal, that when the lid is shut, it holds the grounds back. I was honestly expecting the screen to be thin and flimsy. But it's very thick and sturdy. Easy to dump and clean.

I know the color is unimportant, but I do really like the bright orange ! It makes me think I'm a little bit cooler than I am.  I highly recommend to anyone wanting all the full options of your Keurig. The 2-pack makes it a great deal too. Or handy if you and your significant other like different coffee. A his and hers if you will.

Pop it in. And......

B A M !!!!!   Those 6 little options almost make me tear up it makes me so happy. Though I'm partial to #2 14oz. Strong option please.

Every morning when this screen shows up. I know my morning will be well. And I know yours will too, because you won't have to deal with a psychotic lunatic bi-polar bitch who's running on a little 10 oz cup of coffee. You may thank Brilliant Carafe K-Cups for this.

What makes you have a pleasant day?  Do you have a Keurig? Tell me your story.

Brilliant Carafe K-Cups are DEHP free and BPA free. They are compatible with the K200, K300, K400 and K500 series. I purchased this 2-pack from Amazon. 

I received no discount or kickback for this review. I just thought they were awesome and wanted to share it with you.

Happy New Year 2016

Ahh, here we are, a new year. Many goals and promises to be better than we are. And why I'm not doing it. Screw that. We are who we are. I am who I am. I don't want to be a better mom or a better wife. My husband will tell you, I'm already the best there is. Right husband? A-hem! All I'm saying is, when I see changes to me made at any time of the year, I grab them by the horns and make a lifestyle change right then and there. Self-improvement is anytime of the year. If I fail, I am not going quit until 1-1-2017 for the next resolution time. I pick right back up the next day and try again. I don't want to chase after some imaginary self inspiring goal to be a better me, when that's just not me. So I don't have any magical New Years resolutions to share with you. Just a simple, I hope you all have a great year. 

An old co-worker once told me: If you keep doin' what you're doin', you'll keep gettin' what you're gettin'. And he's right. So I'm going to continue letting Shaklee build the foundation of a healthy lifestyle for my family, so we can feel great every day. I'm going to continue to lead a healthy and fit lifestyle to best of my ability (all year long), without obsessing over it. Basically, I like what I'm getting, so I'm going to keep doing what I've been doing. Living the Shaklee life, and spreading the Shaklee Effect.
