I don’t own a Keurig, myself, but I know plenty of people who do; their feedback about it seems to fall into one of two camps. Either it’s “This is the greatest/most convenient/downright magical invention ever” or it’s “Finding a good deal on K-cups is a never-ending slog.” Sometimes it’s both! Because people are multifaceted, like that.
This morning I got an email from eagle-eyed (and pretty!) regular reader Crissy, who said:
Last month, some relatives visited and it was lovely. They brought their own K-Cups to use in our Keurig because we are All Very Particular. Some were left here, maybe accidentally? Anyway, the other day I ran out of my usual coffee flavor and, for some reason, my auto-shipment from Green Mountain Coffee had not yet arrived. I was so bummed. But I remembered the left-behinds and went rifling through them to find Grove Square French Vanilla Cappuccino. I had never heard of it, but I thought it was worth a try.
Oh. It was good. Really good. (I mean, not like Starbucks good, but like, those gas station coffee machines good. And I kindof like those!) It was already sweetened and tasted great straight from the brewer – no doctoring necessary.
Crissy went on to say that she’d gone to Amazon and was pleasant surprised to find that the current price comes out to about $.40/cup—a good deal for those pricey little beasties. There are two other coffee flavors available on that page as well, if you prefer Caramel or Hazelnut, plus I discovered that Grove Square Hot Chocolate currently runs just $.39/cup if you buy the 24-pack, and the Grove Square Caramel Apple Cider is just $.33/cup, with the spiced Apple Cider through that link dropping as low as $.19/cup (and all of these prices are before Subscribe & Save, which will give you free shipping and an additional 5% off).
Basically, Grove Square has frou-frou K-cups available at a good price. The end. Thanks, Crissy!
