Review- 
This is my first Keurig so it is all new to me and just on that fact it's great... best part of it for me is I'm a huge hot coco drinker and I love that I can pop in my mug and have a cup in a minute without having to deal with my stove and kettle in the morning. Yes, hot coco is my morning coffee. 
(The hot chocolate pack I bought myself from the Keurig site along with 3 other single packs)

When I wake up before my fiance it is nice that I can make us a quick pot with the k-cups also. Not that brewing a pot of coffee with our coffee maker was all the harder but this is just a little easier for us morning zombies. The flavor of the single and k-cups have been very consistent and for me that is fantastic, I am horrible at making coffee... taste good. My fiance use to make a pot of coffee for us and I sometimes didn't have time, forgot or simply did not want any coffee so it would go to waste and now we can serve ourselves as much or as little as we'd like if we are not sure if the other wants come. 

Overall, this is a winner with me. I have always liked the thought of having one but never got one. We had a smaller one for about a day but gave it as a gift the same day, didn't even test it! I really don't have any cons for it other than 2 times I set it to 8oz and 4oz was all I got. It hasn't happened since the first week so again no cons but I am still testing it out so I will update if I run into anything.

I received this product free from Influenster for testing and review purposes. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
