Keurig Review and Giveaway!

Disclosure: Staples.com provided me with this Keurig OfficePRO Coffee Brewer for the purpose of this review. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own. Giveaway prize is also provided by Staples. To see the full line of Keurig brewers and K-cups, visit Staples.


Now, I'm not a huge coffee drinker, but I occasionally enjoy a frapaccino every now and then. My husband on the other hand is a coffee fanatic! I'm not even sure how many cups he drinks per day, maybe 3 or 4?! He's a coffee maniac! So, when Staples contacted me to see if I'd be interested in reviewing a free Keurig OfficePRO Coffee Brewer I of course said yes! I knew my husband would love it and hey, I do love me some hot chocolate and the Keurig can totally make that too!


For my review I thought I would compare our old Mr. Coffee to the new Keurig OfficePRO. Give you a little of the good the bad and the ugly! Don't forget, I am giving one away for FREE at the end of this post, a $129.99 value!!






A little about this particular Keurig model...The Keurig OfficePRO Coffee Brewer comes with a choice of 3 cup brewing sizes, 6 oz, 8 oz, and 10 oz. It is super easy to clean and refill with a removable 48 oz water reservoir and this Keurig commercial grade brewer generally brews about 10 times the volume of a typical home coffee brewer!

After giving this Keurig a whirl, this is what I've learned:

  • GOOD: The Keurig is sleek, compact, and fits well on the counter top.
  • GOOD: Ease of use. I was able to figure out the machine without even reading the instructions (I do recommend reading them though lol)
  • GOOD: The K-cups already come pre-measured, no guessing on the amount of coffee grounds you need!
  • GOOD: No need to buy coffee filters!
  • BAD: My first attempt at hot cocoa was a little watery. However, I think choosing the next cup size down will remedy that.
  • GOOD: You only have to make one cup! No more wasting extra cups of coffee that you couldn't drink.
  • GOOD: You can make a cup of Joe in less than a minute!
  • BAD: The individual cups can be pricey, but you can always buy them with a 20% off coupon at Bed Bath and Beyond.
  • GOOD: You can use regular coffee grounds to make your coffee stronger and cheaper with a special attachment.
Overall, I would totally recommend purchasing a Keurig (or winning one here!). Especially if you are like me and only drink one cup of coffee and you need it quick! This will save you a lot of time, and since Starbucks makes K-cups you can save money and brew your own Starbucks coffee at home! I also hear that the Keurig Donut Shop Coffee K-cups are loved by many!

Okay, ready to win one for yourself?! Staples wants to hop you up on some caffeine with your very own Keurig Office Pro Brewer, a $129.99 value! Entering is easy, just follow the simple rules below! Good luck!

  13. I would love to try the Café Almond Biscotti. Occasionally at Starbucks I will ask the barista to add a biscotti to my frappaccino. I am a coffee addict! Have to have it literally to function. I had to create an art project for a college course and I did an abstract self portrait w/a coffee pot pouring out coffee that flowed down to be my hair because I cannot think or function without my morning cup of coffee!

  41. I was a HIV-AIDS patient and I got it from cheating on my wife. It was sort of a payback but a week later I was told by a friend that the person who I cheated with had the HIV-AIDS virus and did not tell me. I was so stupid by not using a condom I thought since he was an old school friend he was trustworthy. But I was wrong. I cried and cried. Two days later, I got a phone call from my friend and he told me about a person who is known by another friend, who can help me. I could not let my wife know what I was going through. I finally got his email address: oseremenspelltemple@gmail.com and I emailed this man my story and he replied me immediately saying i should be calm and told me that everything will be OK. I could not come to terms with what I was hearing but then I concluded it did not matter because I was so broken I just needed help. I was going out of my mind literally. I was confused with what he was telling me, but I listened. He told me about some materials i need to buy that he needed to cast the spell and I said OK. I bought the materials to him, I sent down my picture to him and my positive result sheet and he replied me that i am going to be negative under 3days. I message Him every 2hours for 2day and I knew he thought that I was crazy but I did care I needed a shoulder. Behold, the third day he messaged me i should go for a test that i will be negative. My marriage could be broken because of a stupid mistake and my life was on the line. I remembered when I was going to get the results of my re-test I called him up again and told him that I was going to get my results today and his reply was “so" and that everything will be as he explained. I knew then that he was getting tired of me calling him, maybe I was wrong. Well I got my results and the first person I called was him - again. As he said hello I started to cry and cry. I could not believe it. I was given a second chance in life.This man is a great spiritual HIV/AIDS healer, his healing spell on aids healing is very powerful .please brothers and sister, contact Dr Ose oseremenspelltemple@gmail.com
