I’m in love with the Keuring Paltinum Brewer and I haven’t even used it. You see, I adore coffee. I absolutely love the stuff, but it doesn’t always love me–at least the high-caffeine stuff hates me. I have high blood pressure so I am supposed to drink decaffeinated coffee. What I usually do is mix some decaf with some regular coffee which gives me a reduced caffeine coffee. I get a little of the buzz with less of an impact on my blood pressure.
The other problem I have is that I don’t drink as much of it (in one sitting) as I used to. So instead of using one of those big Mr. Coffee-style coffee makers that makes way too much coffee, I use a French Press. French Presses make wonderful coffee, treating coffee like it should be: Slowly steeped in super hot water releasing all the natural flavors. Unfortunately, this process takes some time. You first have to boil the water, then you pour it over the coffee in the press. You give it a good stir and then wait an additional 5 – 6 minutes for the coffee to steep. I usually don’t have that kind of time or ambition early in the morning.
BUT with this fabulous one-cup coffee maker from Kuerig, I can make myself one cup of tasty coffee in the morning before I go to work. Just the thought of being able to have a cup of coffee every day before I leave for work is getting me all goose-bumpy. It would be a dream come true and unfortunately, that’s what it is right now: Just a dream. BUT thanks to the gals at SITS, my dream may become a reality!
I know you’ve heard me talk about SITS before. SITS stands for Secret is in the Sauce. It’s a group of blogger women (and gay ol’ me) who are committed to blog and comment support. If you are not a member, you should be. To sign up, visit them here. And don’t worry if you’re a guy. Just tell them Preston sent you and you want to be a BITS. (Brother in the Sauce) In all seriousness, my readership has gone through the roof since joining SITS.
Aside from all that comment lovin’, they also run a monthly contest where you can win fabulous prizes-prizes even a guy wants. This month’s prize is (can you guess?) a Keurig Platinum Brewer! And gosh, darn it! I wanna win it. For more information regarding the contest details, simply click on the following link: Preston Should Win The Keurig Platinum Brewer
A special thanks to Tiffany and Heather who really do a bang up job with keeping the SITS blog rolling along full steam. And don’t think I’m just brown-nosing it for the coffee maker cause the winner is randomly picked. So there!
