I drink a lot of coffee & tea. I really like them both equally, although sometimes I’m in a mood for one over the other. I love all the various flavors of tea, and have become a huge fan of loose leaf tea as well. I just can’t give up my coffee though, as I really do enjoy the flavor. My hubby would tell you that I “ruin” the flavor since I add milk and agave nectar (a natural sweetener), but I love it!
Needless to say, I absolutely love my Keurig coffee maker! I was spoiled by my husband a couple years ago when he surprised me with it. It’s so nice to be able to make tea or coffee just one cup at a time. It’s also great when we have company over because it’s easy to make decaf for some, and regular for others. You can get different flavors of tea, various flavors/strengths of coffee, and even hot chocolate! Lots of choices for everyone.
In order to save money, and not blow our budget on K-cups, we supplement with the “My K-cup” filter, which allows you to use your own ground coffee. (Extra tip: You can get good deals on the K-cups by using a 20% off coupon at Bed, Bath & Beyond)
We also use the Keurig for hot water, by simply running it without a K-cup in it at all.
So, this morning, I put a tea bag in my cup, and ran some hot water through the machine to make some lovely raspberry tea!
Unfortunately, I forgot to check to make sure the K-cup holder was empty.
It wasn’t. I had left the “my K-cup” in there from last night when I made a cup of decaf coffee.
As I took a sip of my tea, I noticed this odd flavor that I couldn’t quite put my finger on at first. Suddenly I realized it was coffee flavor, mixed with raspberry tea!
I had to start over. Some mornings I really think I need my cup of coffee before I operate any appliances :)
So, which do you prefer? Coffee or tea? What flavors?
