I recently purchased the Keurig Single Cup Coffee Brewing System and I wanted to try a bunch of different coffees to pick the ones I liked.  It came with some samples, but I decided to order a lot more.  Keurig offers 5 piece sample packs and free shipping if you order enough.   I put together an order of enough sample packs to get the free shipping, choosing primarily string blends as that’s the way I like my coffee.  What follows are my brief impressions of them with ratings from 1 to 4 stars.

keurigspI never thought I would buy, let alone love, one of the single cup brewing systems.  But when I saw a great deal on one I decided to give it a try.  I got the Keurig Special Edition and I love it.  It’s fast but a bit noisy when it pumps the water from the reservoir into the brewer.  It makes a very good cup of coffee (or tea and hot chocolate) and there are tons of blends to choose from.  The coffee comes in in “K-Cups” which are single cup disposable packages.  You can also get a “My Cup” accessory that lets you use your own coffee.  I haven’t tried it with coffee yet, but I did try it with tea and it made a great cup.  (The instructions don’t mention that you can use it with tea, but it works fine.)

It came with a lot of sample K-Cups, but I wanted to try more.  I ordered a lot of the 5 piece sample packs from Keurig – most all in the “strong” coffee category.  I have reviewed them all briefly in another post.

The bottom line is that I am very happy with it.  It makes a good cup of coffee, tea or hot chocolate.
