You’re in for a treat today! Cross Country Cafe is giving away a Keurig Brewer and a 6-month supply of K-Cups!
Now I have to tell you, I only accepted this giveaway because I figured some of you would be really excited to win it. But I’m a French Press gal and I was really skeptical about the Keurig.
But Cross Country Cafe really wanted me to review it, so they sent me one to try out — all the while I was worried I wouldn’t have anything good to say about the Keurig and would disappoint them with a review. I’m sure all of you Keurig users are totally shaking your head at how naive I was. 🙂
Since I’m so attached to my French Press, it wasn’t love at first sight with the Keurig. But once I warmed up to it, I really have grown fond of it. I don’t think I’ll ever give up my French Press, but I found the Keurig to be very handy for a number of reasons. Here are three of those reasons:
1. It’s so easy to brew a cup of coffee and it doesn’t make a mess.
For me, making a cup of coffee in the morning usually involves getting the coffee grinder down, grinding the coffee, boiling water on the stove, and making the coffee in the French Press. The Keurig eliminates just about all of those steps — you just turn it on, put the K-Cup in, push brew, and you’ve got a steaming hot cup of coffee in less than a minute!
2. The Keurig is also perfect for hospitality.
When you have a big group of people to your home, you don’t have to worry about making two different kinds for those who want regular and those who want decaf. You also don’t have to mess with keeping the coffee hot and fresh. With the Keurig, people can just choose their K-cup, and quickly make their own cup of coffee — whenever they want it!
3. Coffee on the road becomes a breeze.
We took the Keurig with us when we went with my extended family to Arkansas. It worked out so well because all of the coffee-drinkers could just make their own cup of coffee in the flavor and brew they wanted, whenever they wanted.
Cross Country Cafe prides themselves on fantastic customer service. And from my experience with them, I’d have to agree. In fact, not only did they send me a free Keurig Brewer, but they also sent me at least a six-month supply of K-Cups. Then, they kept checking up to make sure I was liking the coffee they sent and asking if I wanted any other kinds.
I’ve worked with a lot of companies over the last few years as a blogger, and they definitely stood out from the pack. The word “Excellence” comes to mind and it shines through in all they do. In fact, they told me, “We have a zero tolerance policy for dissatisfied customers — we just won’t let it happen!”
