After a week at work, I came home on Friday and wanted to relax. As always I checked my email and got a wonderful, absolutely unexpected surprise - my affiliated with Influenster has gotten me into a program to try the new Keurig 2.0 for free. That's right, I will be getting a new, fancy Keurig coffeemaker after years of trying. I will spare you a description of the scene that the person I was chatting on the phone had to listen to, let's just say - decorum went out the window and if I had not been sitting with a computer on my lap, I would have probably jumped out of the chair and done a happy dance. This gift rivals the occasion of my getting a Kitchenaid mixer years ago; a transactions that involved survey points to Ipod nanos to Ebay transactions to Paypal money to mixers on clearance.
So what is so special about Keurig 2.0? It combines the best of all Keurigs so far and then some. It can use the vue capsules to make cappuccino. In addition, it still makes the regular single serve cups of coffee. But the new thing about 2.0 - it can make a carafe of coffee, 4 coups in one brewing cycle. So when you have guests, no more standing around and waiting for each cup to brew. Now you host your guests with a carafe, make the cappuccino for some of your guests and brew a single cup of flavored coffee for you to toast yourself after a party well hosted!
