I Was About To Throw My Keurig In
The Trash – Then This Happened!
Don’t even talk to me until I’ve had my coffee!
When I first heard about the Keurig coffee maker, I was thrilled. As a working mom, every morning is a paradox: I need coffee to function, but I don’t have time to make it. The idea of a machine that could make piping-hot coffee at the push of a button seemed like an answered prayer.
At first, the machine seemed to deliver as promised. They work just as quickly as everyone says, producing any coffee you want within seconds of pushing the button. But over time, I began to get disillusioned with the coffee it made.
A Lukewarm Reception
Like most of you, I have some very interesting conversations in the mornings - mostly before I have my morning coffee! On a morning not too long ago, the conversation started just like this:
A few days later, while I was trying to explain to our daughter that she couldn’t wear her Halloween costume to school because it was April, I took a sip of coffee and almost spit it into the sink right then and there.
It tasted stale. I checked the box and, although the coffee wasn’t expired as far as I could tell, it tasted like it had been sitting in a closet for years. Later, I found out that it wasn’t far from the truth: the K-Cups you buy at the store often sit on shelves for a long time before they make it to your house, going from warehouse to stockroom to shelf over a span of months. During that time, the oils that give coffee its delicious flavor evaporate, leaving you with a cup of what kinda tastes like wet socks. I tried switching brands, but every box I got at the store had the same problem.
No matter what I did, the coffee came out weak, bland, and kind of gross, and I began to think that the only solution was to go back to a drip coffee maker or a French press, neither of which I had time for on a busy weekday morning.
A Bitter Realization
The straw that broke the camel’s back, though, was when I was paying bills one day and realized, to my horror, just how much I was spending on K-Cups every month. They’d gotten more expensive so gradually I hadn’t noticed, and it had turned from a necessary morning boost into a luxury I couldn’t afford.
hat was it. I unplugged the Keurig and put it in the closet, with a half-baked idea that I might put it on Craigslist sometime to sell. A week later, I was battling serious caffeine withdrawal. I don’t know if any of you have ever tried to give up coffee before, but I don’t recommend it.
My head was killing me, and I felt like I was always tired. But more than that, I missed my morning ritual of a hot cup of coffee.
Coffee With Friends
At my Tuesday spin class, my friend Stacy noticed and asked me if I was coming down with something. I explained to her that I wasn’t sick, but that I’d had to stop drinking coffee because it had gotten too expensive.
My friend let out the biggest laugh and looked at me with surprise...
$5.95 for fourteen cups?! That would only buy one cup at the coffee shop.
The other thought that popped into my mind was that I need a strong coffee. Not some watery, weak brew which I get when I make instant coffee brought from the local store.
I had noticed the other K-Cups I had been using felt a bit lighter than expected.
In my mind, this all sounded like a scam. How could any company do all of this cheaper, better and faster than the big guys?...
A Freshly-Ground Start
I may have been speeding when I returned home with my two precious K-Cups in hand. I plugged the Keurig back in, and with a push of a button, the cup began to fill up.
I could tell from just the smell that this was different. As soon as it hit my nostrils that this wasn’t over-roasted, and that I was in for a treat. The first sip confirmed it - this was the best cup of coffee I’d had in ages.
Within minutes, I’d given the Keurig back its place of honor on our kitchen counter, and moments later, I was online, picking out my own sample boxes so that I could try as many different flavors as I could.

“I was looking for coffee pods for my single cup machine. Angelino claims it makes small batches which come to you fresher than store bought. This is my third order and so far I like them. I bought a variety pack first and having been tweaking order since then to determine what I really like. Will order again. Really like Hawaiian and Narino Decaf.”
“The coffee this company distributes is the very best quality I have ever consumed! I’ve been drinking coffee my whole life and only the past couple years found this brand. I have always preferred the dark roast. The flavor is smooth and delicious. My wife has had me order the flavored coffee and she enjoys those too.”
“Hands down, Angelino's Pumpkin Spice is by far the BEST I have ever tasted. Along with a little bit of Pumpkin Spice creamer and my tastebuds are VERY Happy!!! Smooth, rich, delicious blend, beautifully fragrant and takes me to a place that feels like fall - my favorite time of the year. Thank you Angelino's - your Pumpkin Spice is spot ON!!! Yum!!!!!!”
