K-Cups @LondonDrugs! What is the Excitement!?
I have been buying the K-Cup replacement coffee pods for the Keurig machines for almost 3 years now and I can honestly, and shamefully say, that I have never played with a machine to see how these things tasted or worked. Now, that is not to say that I am a complete ignoramus when it comes to these machines as I did have the kids use the Krups Dolce Gusto some time ago and they did a vlog on it . It was just that “I” never used a machine myself.
We were at a friend’s house this past weekend that did have the Keurig Elite KUB-40 machine (purchased of course from a local London Drugs!) I did give it a try to see what the excitement was all about and quite honestly, I was quite impressed. Now, I am not going to give up on making my own coffees with my Saeco machine and grinding a true espresso bean. I would not buy one of these pod machines for myself as I don’t think you can get the same coffee quality. That could be just the coffee snob speaking as the coffee was not that bad. The espresso did have a bit of crema on the top and the flavour was pretty good (remember coffee SNOB!). The pod was the K-Cup Timothy’s Italian Blend – again – not bad.
In terms of practicality – nothing beats this!! You can make a tea one seconds, a hot chocolate the next and then fly into coffees. I have to admit, I have not figured out how to do that on my Saeco!!
We carry 2 machines at this time (pics and links below)
We carry a wide selection of pods also (couple of pics and links below)
Take a look at what we have at London Drugs – you will be impressed.
Ciao for now @kootenayborn
