I'm sipping on an iced latte. I think this machine is going to be worn out before the first week!

I am thinking of getting the small regular Keurig for TB as he isn't a real coffee drinker but loves chai tea. He can brew his tea on the small machine and froth his coconut milk on the Rivo. It doesn't froth as well as regular milk but does give enough foam for a latte.

I was trying to cut out coffee and then I discovered the flavored creamers! OMG I am so hooked!

I realize I didn't mention the bean supplier we've switched our allegiances to. It's Dean's Beans, out of Orange, MA. Unlike Green Mountain (which, incidentally is changing its website name to "Keurig.com" later this summer - now I REALLY feel like the red-headed stepchild without a Keurig), you don't get automatic delivery on a schedule. Instead, you call or online order when you need coffee. Works for me since I was always playing with our shipping date anyway! Besides the fact that the coffee is really good, they don't roast the green beans until they get your order. My first order was put in late Monday night, they roasted the beans on Wednesday, and I got them on Friday. They were almost still warm from the roaster!

I mess with my schedule date all the time. I'm currently getting my order every two months. Yes, I'm down to one cup a day, IRL

That being said, I'd like a quad Brevé, don't steam the half and half.

Don't feel bad, CG. We neither have nor want a Keurig, either. DH doesn't like flavored coffee and I flavor mine with hazelnut creamer. We're happy with that.

Just finished my morning coffee and need to get ready to go for an iron infusion.

Our well water is loaded with iron and I've been eating cucumbers like mad! You'd think this wouldn't be a problem!

Good morning everyone. I'm on my second espresso allongé. Talk of flavoured coffee reminded me that I could stir my coffee with half a vanilla bean (previously used in a fruit pudding and rinsed). It adds a subtle vanilla flavour, and tiny black spots floating in the coffee.
