Hi all, I realize it’s been awhile since I pushed out any new writings, reviews, or general ramblings….but I have finally got one. Well, I have to set the stage first. Anyway, long story short, I think the little compact sized Hamilton Beach coffee maker I got Dad for his birthday eventually conked out after a year. Rference more on this post. If you’re reading this now, I don’t know if that style is still carried or not, but that’ll give you an idea that it might be wise to skip that one if you’re thinking about it.
So this year, after the entry-level experience, I thought I would shop around for an upgrade. Dad’s birthday is in July and I just happened upon the same Keurig little size that I have. I’m delighted to report that I’ve had that baby for about 5 years and it still works great. Even though I must admit that I don’t descale it as often as I should. Full disclosure – I do not use it every day. Maybe that’s part of it. I saw this very Keurig K10/15 over at Ollie’s, a popular new discount store chain, don’t know if you’re familiar with it or not. I took a picture of it but as they say you snooze you lose and it got discontinued or sold out. I eneded up getting a new Hamilton Beach Flexbrew – it’s a different model from the ones I talk about here.
I gave it a try,. The trickky part is making sure you remove that apparatus in the middle, as the chamber won’t close with out it.
