Keurig Special Edition Brewer {Review & Giveaway}

{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, Cindy!}

What do you think of when you hear the word coffee?

Do you picture getting up and brewing a fresh pot every morning in hopes that you'll finish a cup or two before it gets cold? Or do you think about the time spent waiting in line at your neighborhood coffee shop so that you can plunk down more of your hard-earned cash to ensure that you have a gourmet cup just how you like it?

Or, are you like me and you think about how the way to get the most flavorful, decadent, made-precisely-the-way-I-like-it-only-when-I-want-it cup of coffee is best done from the top name in coffeemakers, Keurig? Well, if you do, then you must already know that no kitchen is complete without the Keurig B60 Special Edition Brewer for coffee, tea and hot cocoa that the whole family can enjoy.

Recently when we heard the vroom of a truck slowing down in front of the house, the girls and I went to the door and met the delivery man there. As he was setting down the boxes, he turned to me and said "You got a Keurig!" and proceeded to tell me just how much he loves his and that his family uses it all the time.

If that isn't a recommendation right off the bat, I don't know what is.

Having heard about Keurig and their promise of excellence (the name is actually derived from the Dutch word for excellence) I already had high expectations for how great this machine was going to be. As the leading single-cup brewing system in North America, Keurig was founded by coffee-lovers who wanted a way to enjoy a fresh cup of gourmet coffee, tea or hot cocoa quickly and easily.

With so many flavors of their K-Cups offered to go along with the high quality brewers, all that is required is the press of a button and less than a minute's worth of time. There is no set-up or clean-up or dumping cold coffee down the drain, just a steaming hot cup of delicious coffee whenever you want it. Sounds pretty great, doesn't it?

In fact, using the Keurig B60 Special Edition Brewer didn't only meet my high expectations, it surpassed them. Right out of the box there wasn't much more to do than plug it in and get the initial cleaning rinse going while I checked out the yummy flavors of K-Cups in the included sampler packs.

Mmmm... regular coffees, flavored coffees, teas and hot cocoa... mmmm....

A few short minutes later my Keurig was cleaned and ready to go and it was time for our first cup. With Big Sister E by my side we decided to try hot cocoa - she's definitely a big fan.

After filling the water reservoir (it holds up to 48 ounces), we opened the top of the Brewer, popped the hot cocoa K-Cup in and pressed the button telling it to make the "small mug" size.

I immediately liked how there is no guesswork with the Keurig - it tells you when it is ready to brew or if more water is needed and the K-Cups fits right inside with no maneuvering necessary. The handle is easy to use to open or close the top and the three sizes available (a 6 oz small cup, an 8 oz small mug and a 10 oz large mug) help you determine just the right amount of coffee, tea or hot cocoa to brew.

With the touch of one button, almost instantly we had wonderful-smelling hot cocoa streaming into our cup. I wasn't sure what sort of noise to expect the Keurig to make while it worked, but was really pleased with the way the Quiet-Brew Technology kept this Brewer from being disturbing at all.

When it came time for clean-up, it was pretty much nonexistent. The empty K-Cup was simply taken out and thrown away and the drip tray underneath the cup was easily removable had there been any drips to wash off (there wasn't a single one).

This is also a great feature if you want to use a taller cup or travel mug because without the drip tray there is plenty of added room for almost any height mug to fit right in.

The convenience of the Keurig B60 Special Edition Brewing System really is unparalleled, as they truly have thought of everything to make this as user-friendly as possible. Not only does this Brewer give you a fresh-brewed cup of fresh coffee, tea or hot cocoa every time that is made exactly how you like it, but its features make it pretty much fool-proof.

The blue backlit LCD screen tells you everything you need to know and because it is programmable, you can even set it to have your Keurig turned on and waiting for you by the time you get into the kitchen. Then, in the amount of time that it will take you to pull out your cream and sugar, your gourmet coffee will be prepared and ready for your first delicious sip - with no wasting the rest of the pot or messy clean-up involved!

The list of K-Cup flavors available is staggeringly large, making me want to try out one of each. So far each of the cups I've tried from the sampler pack have been rich and delectable, making me eager to test more! Along with their other great accessories, Keurig even offers two different K-Cup Carousels so that your flavors can be stored in a stylish way to match the chrome accents of your Brewer.

Or, simply purchase the My K-Cup reusable filter and you're able to use your own gourmet ground coffee right in your Keurig Brewer. No need to give up your current favorite - you just now have a way to brew it without wasting the rest of the pot!

I love being able to offer unexpected guests a quick cup of coffee or tea without any fuss or wait. When a good friend stopped by the house the other night, I had a hot mug of Lemon Zinger tea in her hands in under a minute - and felt like a great hostess. And for all winter long when Big Sister E wants a cup of hot cocoa after playing outside in the snow (a tradition that we have) I'm looking forward to being able to have it ready and waiting for her as she walks in the door. Keurig is perfect for the whole family!

You may or may not decide to kiss your Keurig as well, that's up to you.

Who doesn't need a few extra minutes in the morning? With the hectic rushing as parents across the country are still getting used to back-to-school routines, a Keurig Brewer is a high quality, innovative, fast and easy way to bring efficiency and convenience into your life.

Check out their amazing line of K-Cups and Brewers to find the one that will work for you - there is even a Mini Plus Personal Brewer that would be perfect for heading back to college or just to save space counter space. All of the features and benefits of a wonderful Keurig in a smaller package!

Are you ready for a gourmet cup of coffee in moments right in your own kitchen? I love my Keurig and am sure you will, too! And, thanks to their incredible generosity, so will one very happy person, because...
