Y'all, I overbooked myself in a big way in December, and now it's time to start paying the piper. As a blogger for US Family Guide, I accepted several free gifts in exchange for my honest review. Well, I've enjoyed the gifts, but it's long past time I reviewed them! So today I'll start with the Single Cup Club.
So here's the deal with the Single Cup Club: The perfect friend in the pursuit of amazing coffee, Single Cup Club is like having your own “guy” in the coffee world. Each month, a box of artisan coffees is shipped right to your door for just $19. You’ll experience three small batch roasted coffees with each month’s box in the convenience of Keurig compatible single serve cups.
I've been hearing people talk about Keurigs since . . . well, forever it seems like! But I never thought of wanting one. In a happy coincidence, right around the same time my first box of coffee arrived, we also received a Keurig as a gift. I still prefer my automatic drift coffee maker--the Keurig cannot get it strong enough for my tastes--but John enjoys it and now he makes his own coffee so yay for that too.
I love these monthly subscription deals. I mean, really, I'm a sucker for them and I belong to several that I am NOT getting in exchange for blogging about them! So even though I think that the Single Cup Club is a little more expensive than the best deals you can find out there for Keurig-compatible coffee pods, the fun factor and the convenience of not having to look for deals and remember to order each month offsets that.
It's also fun to get new kinds of coffee to try. Each kind is distinct. We've gotten to try six so far. My husband has liked all of them and he tells me that they are stronger than all the various samples that came with the Keurig. The weakness of Keurig-made coffee is a common complaint, so that sounds like a plus to me.
The helpful folks at the Single Cup Club also include a little adapter thing in the box of coffee, so that the next time you have that maddening experience of trying to use a non-Keurig pod which looks like it should work but it won't . . . now it will!
So really it comes down to whether you are willing to pay a little extra for the fun of trying out some delicious new coffees and the convenience of having them delivered regularly to your door--and on whether you use a Keurig, of course! If you want to give it a try, my readers get a discount:
