How K-Cups have Changed Coffee Culture
Discover how K-cups have changed coffee brewing forever. The days of spending twenty minutes trying to brew a decent pot of coffee are over. Here's why.
It's no secret that coffee is one of the most popular beverages around the world. We all like to have a cup (or two!) of hot, delicious coffee in the morning from homes to offices to restaurants.
While most people still enjoy the taste and aroma of freshly brewed coffee, there's another method that many people are afraid to try. But why is it that so many people avoid using K-cups for coffee? Here's why K-cups are an excellent alternative to brewing your pot of coffee.
What is a K-Cup?
You’ve probably seen the commercials. It shows how easy it is to make a cup of coffee with a Keurig machine. It's simple, convenient, and consistently makes a delicious cup of Joe, but that’s not the only reason why people love Keurig machines and K-cups. But what is a K-cup?
First and foremost, a K-cup is a simple every day, ready-to-drink cup of coffee. But that's all it is. The true brilliance of the K-Cup is its unique cup which holds a single serving of coffee that you can enjoy without a percolator, espresso maker, French press, or other specialized coffee brewing methods. Well, there's that and the wealth of flavor options, giving you all the taste of a coffee shop in your home.
K-cups can hold up to 32 ounces of coffee beans. Although this may sound like a lot, there is a recommended serving size for coffee; about 200 milligrams for women, 200 for men, or 150 mg for people with hypoactive obesity.
Additionally, K-cups contain a small amount of cellulose gum, which helps produce a better brew.
Why K-Cups Are an Excellent Alternative to Brewing Your Coffee?
You may be wondering why you would buy K-cups instead of brewing your own coffee? Well, first, coffee makers aren't cheap. You may have to spend several hundred dollars for one, and it may not even give you the best coffee. Sometimes, it's not possible to get your hands on fresh coffee, even if you want it. If you're a busy person, you may not have the time to prepare a whole pot of coffee. With K-cups, you have a guaranteed supply of delicious coffee at your fingertips, and you can choose your favorite brew. While you can purchase K-cups in your favorite flavors like French Vanilla or Jamaican Blue Mountain, you can also brew K-cups in exotic flavors, such as our Peanut Butter Cookie and White Chocolate Mocha.
Not only is K-cup coffee the perfect choice for everyone, but it can be a great way to make a healthy, guilt-free breakfast. Not all of us like or like coffee in the morning, and some people even prefer a cup of tea. So, unless you absolutely love your morning Americano, there's no reason why your daily dose of java can't be as exciting or somber as you are. Try one of our special blends today.
