Coffee-Drink of the Gods

When it comes to coffee I normally use a French Press-this is as close to an espresso as you can get without really working at it. Grind your own beans and whip up some milk if you want that whole cappuccino experience. But really, it’s always been about the buzz you get from coffee for me.

Keurig makes a machine that I really like. Now, its not that I am totally lazy, just mostly lazy. I like the French Press and the coffee grinders, but there is a reason so many of them find their way to thrift stores-most people are lazy. So what makes the Kuerig coffee maker perfect for the lazy coffee connoisseur? You plop in a little coffee, or tea, capsule and press a button and viola, you have a cup of coffee in seconds. I mean-wow. The varieties come in such things as Cappuccino, Butter Toffee, and Jet Fuel and a nice assortment of teas.

I’ve always been one of those people that would buy an Amanti Golden Eagle Espresso Machine if I won the lotto-but this little gem might be the next best thing for me. Hmm, coffee-God’s Beverage.

A couple of juiced up coffees that I like are Shock Coffee and JavaFit Coffee-both claim to be more than just a cup of Joe. I like them, but I am not sure that they are that much different from normal coffee.

But that Keurig Coffee Maker may just be the best home coffee machine in the world. The French Press still comes in a close second.

    My wife and I received one of these a few months ago as a gift. I was skeptical at first. It seemed like technology over-kill for making a cup of coffee. Man, was I wrong. And, man, has my coffee intake increased.

    At first, I thought we would save money because most of the time we are pouring the last remaining old coffee in the pot down the drain. But, now, making coffee is so easy I will easily have two or three cups a day. It is scary how spoiled we are becoming. I believe in life’s compensation, as Emerson referred to it. Do you think we are setting ourselves up for a massive compensation?

    The ease of making a cup of coffee, and so many different kinds of coffee, is what makes this machine so cool.

    Is this ease of use in and of itself a bad thing? Maybe, if you are drinking too much coffee-if there is such a thing-than maybe that is the compensation.

    I have never been a fan of hard work myself and am glad for anything that makes life a bit easier.

    Emerson’s essays always makes me reach for more coffee.


    Coffee Pods or capsules can be a great option if you do not drink much coffee (so your beans are always going stale )

    But, the price you pay is just like with printers, the cheaper the machine, usually the more expensive the consumable.

    Cute product though!
