How to Make Coffee Shop Coffee at Home {Keurig Giveaway}

I participated in a campaign on behalf of One2One Network for Keurig. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.

Whenever I travel into the city, stopping at a coffee shop is something that I simply have to do. Since I live in the country now, a coffee shop latte or cappuccino is a real treat. It’s definitely something I took for granted when I lived in the city. My grandson worked as a barista in high school, and for Christmas one year he treated the family to one of those fancy cappuccino machines. The problem was that he was the only one who knew how to use all those fancy gadgets. Sid, was a great sport about it and regularly prepared his Mom and I a cup of coffee. Luckily, I have since learned some simple ways to bring the coffee shop into my kitchen.

How to Make Coffee Shop Coffee at Home

I love owning a one cup coffee maker, like the Keurig K65 Special Edition brewing system. It makes the PERFECT cup of coffee every single time. Plus, it’s great for when I need an afternoon cup of coffee and don’t need a whole pot. My family also uses our Keurig a lot for cold beverages like iced tea and lemonade. Not to mention all the cups of hot cocoa we enjoyed during the winter months.

Keurig K65 Special Elite Features:

Always ready and brews in under 1 minute.
Removeable 6 oz. Water Reservoir that lets you brew multiple consecutive cups before refilling.
Programmable – Auto On and Off. Brew Temperature Control. Digital Clock.
Quite Brew Technology
Removable Drip Tray – Allow room for your travel mug.
BPA Free
Choice of 3 Cup Sizes

One of the things I enjoy most from coffee shop coffee, is the frothy milk they put on the top. I don’t know what it is, but that just puts it over the top for me. I was thrilled when I came across a frothy milk method a while back that doesn’t require any special machines or gadgets.

How to Make Your Own Frothy Milk in the Microwave

How to Make Your Own Milk Froth in the Microwave

What You Need:
fresh milk
small jar with a lid
microwave

1. Put as much milk as you normally like in your coffee into a jar with a tight fitting lid. The milk should fill the jar no more than half way to allow room for the foam.

2. Shake. Shake. Shake the jar with the lid on as hard as you can until the milk has become frothy and doubled in size. This will takes about 30 seconds.

3. Remove the lid and place the jar into the microwave. Microwave on high for 30 seconds. The foam will rise to the top of the milk and the heat from the microwave will help stabilize it.

4. Pour the milk into your coffee using a spoon to hold back the foam. Then scoop the foam on top.

5. Enjoy!

    I love Keurig Brewers! The Keurig® Platinum Plus Brewing System looks great, and I would give this to my parents.

  2. Betty says

    I was looking at the systems capability of putting out differenct size amounts of water. Given that the K cups only come in the one strength, it depends on how much you water down the Kcup. I can really tell the difference between 8 and 10oz strengths. For the prize asked, you’d think we could get more than a 1 yr limited warranty. I think the smaller B 40 unit would be a nice wedding gift

  3. Pamela Gurganus says

    The brewing system I like the most is the Keurig K75 Platinum Brewing System. I’d love to give my Mom one for Mother’s Day…she’s been wanting one ever since using my sisters…they both love it! I’ve not had the pleasure of trying it yet! Thanks for this wonderful giveaway opportunity! :)
