    I so enjoy a cup or two of coffee in the morning. It helps me start my day off right. If I were to have a Keurig machine, I’d be able to sample all kinds of different coffees. Plus, sometimes, in the afternoon, I only want one cup, so there would be no waste.

    I like to have coffee every morning but I’ve had to go back to using a french press at home ever since a few months ago when my out of warranty Keurig broke.

    I love drinking my coffee after I get home from work because that is usually when I am ready to fall asleep :) I love the Starbucks Blonde blends but also love trying new coffee out! Thanks for this awesome giveaway!

    I absolutely love coffee. There is something so comforting about the rich smell and taste of a hot cup of coffee anytime of day.

    I have my coffee every Tuesday with My Dad. I don’t have my own brewer because I am the only coffee fan in my family. I do enjoy my Starbucks Frappucinos though :)
