On September 3rd- which just so happened to be my birthday- I received a complementary product from Influenster! I was sent the new Keurig 2.0 for testing and review purposes! Talk about the greatest voxbox ever!!
For those of you who don't know, Influenster is a site that helps promote products through social networking. They periodically send products to their members for review purposes. I was so gratefully that I was selected for this particular product review!
Here is what I thought about the new and improved Keurig 2.0
1. Instead of only being able to brew a single cup, the Keurig 2.0 has large pods that can brew an entire Carafe! I can't tell you the number of times I said "The Keurig is great unless you drink a whole pot of coffee. In that case you are better off with a traditional coffee pot". Not any more! The shipment even came with a brand spanking new Carafe pot.
2. The 2.0 has a touch screen pad that adds so many new features. You can now set your pot to turn on and off at certain points of the day. You can also set your Keurig to save energy by powering down after a certain time of inactivity.
3. You have more option for the size of cup you would like. Instead of choosing small or large cup, you can now choose how many ounces you would like. You can choose 4, 6, 8, and 10 ounce cups sizes.
4. You can manipulate the strength of your coffee! Big plus for me. Some of the pods don't make the coffee enough on the old Keurig.
Things to work on:
I only have one negative to say. The shipment came with a filter but I couldn't find any information on how to install the filter. In the handbook, the only thing about a filter that I could find was "change the filter every 2 months or when the screen tells you that the filter needs to be changed". If the installation guide talked about installing the filter, I couldn't find it anywhere!
All in all, the Keurig 2.0 is worth the money! If you want more choices and better coffee, it is a wonderful piece of equipment. Here is me with my first cup!
