Top Ten Favorite K-Cups

It's Top Ten Tuesday! Hurray! (I know it's actually Wednesday, but just go with it…)

This week's top ten list is pretty simple and straight-forward. As I'm sure you've gleaned from my blog, if you read along with any frequency, I am a coffee lover. A borderline coffee junkie. I love coffeeshops. I love coffee. I drool over a Starbuck's Nonfat Latte. And I savor a straight-up medium roast with room for cream at my local Cocoa Beanery. At home I brew with my trusty Keurig.

I drink a lot of flavored k-cups at home. Regular in the morning. Decaf in the afternoon. I top it off with half & half…and on the weekends, a little whip cream. In the coffeeshop I shake in some cinnamon too. But my husband goes no-flavor on the coffee and then adds flavored creamer (he likes the Bailey's creamers). I also drink a fair amount of tea…both iced and hot. And brew those with my Keurig as well.

We order k-cups in large quantities…giant boxes of warmth and happiness delivered to our doorstep every few months. We order mostly from…sometimes from Green Mountain. I also will randomly pick up boxes from Target or Bed Bath & Beyond or Macy's (one of my favorite flavors isn't available through…which is annoying).

Anyway, that's the long way of saying: I drink a lot of coffee and therefore may be a reputable source for k-cup recommendations. :-)

So here you go: My Top Ten Favorite K-Cups
