To say I’m not a morning person would be an understatement. But early wakeup calls are a fact of life and always have been, regardless of my own internal clock. It’s a good thing I love coffee as much as I do, because day after day, the smell of freshly brewed java has been my main incentive for getting out of my deliciously cozy bed without hitting snooze (more than once).
For years, I relied on my programmable, 12-cup drip coffee maker. But I’m the only coffee drinker in the house, so when that machine finally tapped out, I decided to switch to a single-serve brewer, the Keurig K-Supreme Plus Smart Coffee Maker. It's official: I understand what all the buzz was about! The best part is this Keurig is $30 cheaper than it was last week, but you save a whopping $90 from the full retail price thanks to the site's Friends & Family sale when you enter code GOSHOP20 at checkout. You'd better believe that $160 is a much better price than I scored this brewer for — it's usually $250!
Okay, okay, I’m not exactly breaking ground here. Keurig has long had a cult following — but unless you’ve upgraded lately, you may not realize just how innovative these machines have gotten. Take mine, for instance: the Keurig K-Supreme Plus Smart Coffee Maker has the ability to customize my cup based on my personal preferences, from strength to temperature. It’s kind of like having a barista take up residence in my kitchen.
Whatever a good cup of coffee boils down to for you specifically — be it rich-as-possible flavor, brew strength, temperature (this one’s got a whopping six settings, from warm to max hot!) or even various cup sizes — this K-Supreme will rise to the challenge. It’s a truly customizable coffee-making magician. So everyone in the house can have their coffee just the way they like it.
It’s hard to even compare my smart Keurig to my trusty old drip coffee maker, even after all those years of loyalty. A pot of coffee came out just fine each morning in that machine, but this single-serve brewer always turns out an exceptional cup of the good stuff without fail. It uses something called MultiStream technology to completely saturate the grounds in a K-Cup pod, producing the richest possible coffee. Bottom line: It’s superior even to the earlier Keurig models that my friends use.
Best of all, I can still program my coffee to brew each morning with the Keurig K-Supreme Plus Smart Coffee Maker. In fact, I can do it from anywhere using the Keurig app on my smartphone. I just schedule a time — the machine already remembers my favorite settings. So on those days I forget to program it the night before, I can just make my coffee from bed. Does that facilitate my morning laziness? Yes, but I’m totally okay with it.
I even got a one-year limited warranty with this baby. So if something goes wrong, I’m entitled to repair or replacement. I simply love it, and so do Kohl’s customers, who have barraged the site with some pretty perky reviews indeed! To the tune of a near five-star rating across the board, in fact.
One reviewer called it “the best Keurig by far.” Yes, they’ve tried other Keurig models, but only the K-Supreme smart brewer was brag-worthy. “I LOVE this smart coffee maker! I can roll out of bed and pick up my cell and start my coffee right from the Keurig app!” another raved. Couldn’t have said it better myself.
Oh, and did I mention the machine itself is only 11 inches wide and 14 inches deep? It sits pretty on my countertop — I mean, I have to admit, it’s a good-looking brewer — and doesn’t hog up the whole space. “Smaller footprint is always appreciated,” as one fan put it, especially when you don’t have to sacrifice functionality. Quite the opposite, I must say.
I love that the Keurig K-Supreme is only $200 at Kohl’s right now — a whole $50 off. That’s a better price than I was able to score; in fact, the price has dropped by $30 since last week. Considering Kohl’s quick inventory turnaround, you’ve really got to jump on a deal when you see one at Kohl’s. Some sales are over in a matter of just a few days.
Grab it here for a steal and start every morning with jolt of joy!
