Several months ago, I decided it was finally time to wean myself off of soda. (It was SO hard, too!) I had spent literally years drinking tons of the bubbly stuff, and I was fully aware of just how awful it is for the body. I knew I had to quit, but I was not looking forward to the awful, caffeine-withdrawl headaches that I knew would ensue.
Rather than make my family suffer through the nastiness that is ME with a migraine, I decided to try drinking a cup or two of coffee every day. This would not only give me some much needed pep in my step, it would also prevent the wrath that is Non-caffeinated Brandy. (Trust me, you guys don't want to come across that witch in a dark alley.)
Until the past several months, I was never a coffee drinker. At all. In fact, unless it was frozen and drowning in a hefty dollop of whipped cream, I wouldn't go anywhere near the stuff. Now, however, I find myself craving a hot, steamy cup of coffee each morning before I start my day.
Since I am still somewhat of a "coffee novice", I have been making it a point to try as many varieties as possible, so I can find out what blends and brands I like, and of course, which ones I am not too terribly fond of.
Thankfully, I discovered Mixcups.com. This awesome company offers their Mix of the Month Club, which is a monthly subscription service that offers customers an easy, convenient, and fun way to sample a wide variety of different coffee drinks. There are even different sized boxes of Mixcups, so you can customize your subscription to suit your needs.
Each monthly box contains a mix of great single serving cups from a variety of different brands. What's inside? Well, that's the fun of having a Mixcups subscription. Each month is a total surprise! This is by far the best way to sample and explore the wonderful world of coffee. (If you don't like surprises, you can also create your own mix.)
Not looking for a monthly subscription? No problem! The folks at Mixcups also have a great online shop where you can order what you want, when you want it. They have single cups, variety packs, and even cocoa and tea, for those who aren't keen on coffee. (Who am I kidding? Who doesn't love coffee?!)
Recently, I received a nice variety of single serving coffee cups from the folks at Mixcups.com. These, like their other cups, are compatible with Keurig machines and other K-Cup compatible brewers. Please note: These cups are NOT designed to work with the Keurig 2.0 brewers. You can, however, rig a 2.0 to take these cups, which is exactly what we have done since we own one of these newer machines. I would post instructions on how you can "cheat the Keurig system", but having worked with the brand before, I think I will skip that. I will say that it's easy to google simple instructions on how this can be achieved. A little birdie DID tell me that all Mixcups products are expected to be Keurig 2.0 compatible by late summer 2015. Yay!
As you can see, there was a fantastic variety of cups included in my Mixcups box. I was delighted to find coveted brands like Cake Boss, Donut Shop, Brooklyn Bean Roastery, and even Marley Coffee included. There were "plain" coffees, in a variety of strengths and blends, as well as some phenomenal flavored brews. I have to admit, I am a sucker for the flavored coffees. My favorites from this mix would have to be the Cake Boss Italian Rum Cake, the Martinson Joe's Vanilla Velvet, and the Donut Shop Chocolate Chip Cookie!
Overall, I was definitely pleased with my Mixcups.com experience. I received a wonderful variety of coffees, many of which I had not heard of before. The coffees sent were all of the highest quality, and come from your favorite, premium brands. (None of the gross, el-cheapo stuff here!) I love the idea of receiving a different mix of coffees each month, and then being able to go to the website and order more of my favorites. This is a great service for all of those adventurous coffee fans out there who like trying new things. With Mixcups.com, you can explore a whole world of flavors, in one convenient box!
