One Cup Connection for you Keurig K-cup lovers! {review and giveaway}

One Cup Connection - Keurig K-Cups

Do you own a Keurig K-Cup brewer? Then this review and giveaway is for you! Read on...

I was lucky enough to win a Keurig K-cup brewer in a blog giveaway last Christmas. I felt like Santa Claus had truly been to my house!! :) I loved being able to make a fresh brewed cup of coffee, one cup at a time. And I loved the variety. I had an absolute ball that Christmas trying different types and flavors!

But then the novelty wore off and the price of K-cups just seemed... well, more like a splurge than a necessity. And for me, coffee is a necessity!

So I put the Keurig brewer away and forgot about it.

...until One Cup Connection asked if I'd like to host a giveaway for my readers.
See this little white box? More on that later.

One Cup Connection is an authorized Keurig coffee distributor, specializing in Keurig Coffee K-Cups and Keurig Coffee Brewers.

You know one thing I love about One Cup Connection? Not only do they carry all the well-known K-Cup varieties, but they get the new holiday editions as well. Like Pumpkin Spice. Oh yeah, you read that right. Green Mountain Pumpkin Spice is a limited edition K-Cup just for the holidays, so when stock is depleted, there won't be any more until maybe next year. Maybe. When it's gone, it's gone. So if that's one of your seasonal favorites, stock up while you have the chance!

You know another thing I love about One Cup Connection? Their prices are comparable to other distributors, but their K-Cup boxes come in packs of 24, not 18 like most other K-Cup suppliers. Twenty-four! That's like getting a half dozen more free!

But the best thing I love... and it's something brand new with One Cup Connection and unique to them as far as I can tell... is the Pick-A-Pack option.
Pick-A-Pack allows you to select 8 K-Cups of your choice as a sampler pack. 8 different varieties. Or 2 each of 4 different varieties. Or any combination you choose to add up to 8.

I love this idea! And One Cup Connection was generous enough to allow me to select my own Pick-A-Pack combination to test the service.

Remember that little white box?
When I opened it, inside were my 8 K-Cup variety choices. Here's what I chose:

* Newman's Own Organic Special Blend Extra Bold
* Diedrich Colombia
* Caribou Sumatra
* Wolfgang Puck Vienna Coffee House
* Timothy's World San Lorenzo Dark
* Tully's French Roast
* Green Mountain Kenyan AA Extra Bold
* Green Mountain Fair Trade Organic Sumatran Reserve Extra Bold

Several different types that I had been wanting to try but was leery of springing for a whole box, in case I didn't like it. I needn't have worried. I loved every single one of them! I like my coffee rather bold as you can tell from my choices, and none of them disappointed.

But each was distinctive, and coffee of course is a matter of taste and personal preference for everyone individually. And that's the sheer genius of the Pick-A-Pack idea -- you can try a sample before buying a whole box.

Now, let's be real, I probably won't be buying a box of all of the above flavors, but there are a couple that were outstanding and I'll definitely be ordering those. And I probably wouldn't have ever got the chance to try them out without the Pick-A-Pack option!
Want to know more? Head on over to One Cup Connection and check out the Pick-A-Pack deal. It's only $5.99! And now through November 30, if you buy 4 boxes of K-Cups, you get a pick-a-pack FREE! So stock up on your favorites and try out some new varieties too.

Connect with One Cup Connection on Facebook and be alerted to specials and promotions.

If you own a Keurig brewer, you're in luck! One Cup Connection is giving a lucky Shady Lady reader not one but TWO boxes of K-Cups of your choice! Woo-hoo!
