Even I’m Keuriging It Now #BrewOverIce

For years now, I’ve been listening to fellow bloggers and local friends espouse the virtues of their beloved Keurig machines, almost as if they were the holy grail of coffeedom.

For years, I said, that’s nice and all, but I’m an ice coffee drinker & only grab a cup of hot, when I don’t have any java prepped for iced coffee making.  I did contemplate getting one for visitors, but honestly, I don’t get that many visitors to warrant the counter space.

Well, that was then, and this is now, I say as I slurp my freshly brewed iced coffee while typing this up.  You see, Keurig recently introduced  Brew over Ice K-Cups and offered to send me a brewer so I could try it out for myself.  Many of their coffee producing partners were quick to jump on with this new concept, so there is a good selection of brands and beverages already available with the Brew Over Ice logo on them.  These cups are filled a bit more, to brew a stronger cup, so it will be just right once poured over ice.brewoverice

I’d never used a Keurig , other than in a few waiting rooms.  The machine was very easy to set up, and I was up and brewing in no time. Of course, brewing in the evening may not have been a genius moment on my part, but I did get a lot of work done being wired til the wee hours of the morning…lol.  I picked up a box of the Brew Over Ice K-Cups at Dunkin Donuts, on a trip through the drive-thru the next day, which has resulted in me saving a number of expensive  trips through there already.

As a total coffee fiend,  I doubt I’ll be trying many of the other icy beverage options offered for Keurig machines, but many of you may be interested.  Both Snapple & Celestial seasonings have ice teas available for the brewers.  Green Mountain naturals has lemonade and Vitamin burst now has two flavors for Keurig.

I’m loving my new Keurig, and my poor old coffee maker has been neglected ever since I powered this baby up.  It may soon find itself housed in the basement storage with my expensive Italian espresso maker that is too much of a hassle to use when you are half asleep in the morning, but gets dragged out on occasion.

    ever since the weather warmed up I’ve been splashing my hot coffee into a tall glass of cold soy milk and ice. This sounds great!

      I used to use powdered non-dairy creamer, now I’m on the almond milk myself. Machine looks awful spiffy too :)

      I use unsweetened vanilla almond milk in my ice coffee, to keep calories down. It does tend to make my coffee look like that, since it takes a little more to have the effect of cream… still ends out fewer calories though.

    I could never understand how people can tolerate hot drinks in the summer. This looks like the perfect way to cool down and I’m glad you are enjoying your keurig!

    I love my Keurig so much … I have two. Yes, two. I actually have a whole coffee bar set up with a mini fridge and sink and the whole kit and kaboodle. I’m a little obsessed. Love the Brew over Ice. All of them!

    My husband was totally against getting a Keurig, until I won one and a huge case of Kcups. Now the man is obsessed and we absolutely CANNOT run out of cups for the machine. It’s funny! We’ve even taught the littles how to make momma and daddy coffee!

    Hubby and I spend way too much getting ice coffee. I need to invest in a Keurig!

    I love my Keurig! And I’m a huge coffee drinker, but never really an iced coffee drinker… but I need to try this.

    I am such a Brew Over Ice fan. The sweet and creamy iced coffee is amazing!

    I’ll take my coffee hot or iced, so long as it’s strong enough to get my blood pumping! Good to know the special cups provide a stronger brew.

    We don’t have one, but with this whole brewing over ice concept, it is looking like a mighty tempting buy.

    I have not gotten one yet, but I have tried it and they really are AMAZING!

    i’m not a coffee drinker but most of my family is and when they come to visit there’s nothing better than serving up a fresh cup of coffee to their taste. I luv the Ice T with Lemon and the Lemonade and so many of the other flavors so worth it. Delicious

    I have had my Keurig for about a year now. I have never been a coffee drinker. No, I bought a Keurig to make iced tea. That is all I use it for and I love it to bits and save so much money instead of stopping places to grab iced tea.
