Adventures in Products: Kuerig 2.0

We all love getting real mail, right? And packages are the best kind of real mail. And packages that contain something that is free...well that is pretty much the cherry on top of the Chick'fil'a peach shake! So imagine how excited I was to find out I was getting a package with a FREE gift in it from Influenster! Want to know what it was???
And 2 types of K-cups. 
The little ones that just brew 1 cup, and new big ones that brew 4 cups into a carafe that comes with the Kuerig. 

Now this was extra exciting for me because I had quit drinking coffee when we started trying to start our family, and continued my coffee fast during my pregnancy. This little beauty showed up about 4 weeks after Rebekah was born (perfect timing!). Daniel doesn't drink coffee so I had always considered buying a Kuerig so I could just brew my 1 cup of coffee in the morning...but my hesitation was "what would I do when I had guests over"?? I guess they could each brew their own cup, but the Kuerig 2.0 totally solves this problem! With the bigger size K-cup and the carafe I can make a pot of coffee too! It is so easy to say #HelloKuerig in the mornings (or any time!) Another reason why I am so excited about this Kuerig is I can make coffee easily with one hand. Having a newborn, I'm learning to do many things with one hand while holding my sweet girl in the other...including type this blog post!  

In all honesty, there are 2 things that I would change about this nifty little machine. 
(1) The carafe does not fit in the Kuerig unless the coffee cup pedestil is removed. Meaning you have to fine a place for either one or the other when it is not in use. In a perfect world they would fit all together making a nice compact machine. 
(2) Not all k-cups fit in the new Kuerig 2.0. I shop at a store that has Roundy brand groceries and I got the store brand cups that I thought would fit (and were $2 cheaper than the brand name cups). Well, when I put them in the Kuerig 2.0 the touch display screen told me they were not the right cups for the machine?! Bummer. 

But over all I am loving my new Kuerig 2.0 from Influester
