#MixCups make the Keurig the new water cooler --- #singlecupcoffee at

The days of standing by the office water cooler to discuss last night’s episode of SNL might be gone, but these days we have the office Keurig.  This exciting change allows co-workers to savor their favorite caffeinated brews while greeting each other after a long weekend, or maybe while spreading holiday cheer.  At home, the coffee maker becomes a soothing comfort zone where just the scent of hot coffee makes people take a deep breath, then sigh. Whether it’s in your kitchen or at the office, here’s how you can make the Keurig a popular place to be!

1.  Provide a great assortment of K-Cups.  Man doesn’t live on coffee alone, friends.  Set out some alternatives, such as tea varieties and hot cider.  It can be pricey to purchase multiple boxes of K-Cups, and you might not have enough office space to hoard it all.  When I received the Mixcups mix of the month box, I knew I had to share it with my work friends. I put the assortment in the office so that others could enjoy it, too!  To keep a steady stream of new selections rotating monthly, sign up for the subscription service.  The office will be looking forward to each month’s new shipment of 30 single-serve cups!  At home, this makes a great surprise for that coffee connoisseur, or a thoughtful gift for a tea lover.

2.  Set out cream, sugar, and other mix-ins.  At our office, we have a wonderful secretary who reminds everyone when it’s time to bring refills of these items!  Having a stash of these items makes it easy for everyone to get their mojo.

3.  Make sure the water reservoir stays filled.  It’s really a pain to start your brew, only to realize that water needs to be added.   If you’re the person who uses the last drop, go ahead and refill it for the next person. That RAOK might be repaid someday!

4. Keep a few extra mugs to keep on hand.  Most people at our workplace bring their own mugs and coffee cups, but it’s nice to have some on hand for those who might forget one.  It’s nice to set out a few extra mugs for guests who might feel more welcome when they see that unclaimed mug as an invitation.

5.  Linger for a moment.  Don’t rush off after you make your cup of coffee, tea, or cocoa.  Stay for a moment to enjoy that rich flavor.  Even if it’s for just a second, that hot sip can help to melt away your cares.  When you provide that second of sanity for your family and co-workers, they’ll start to congregate around the Keurig!

Which of the Mixcups subscriptions do you want to try — the Standard Coffee Mix, Non-Flavored Coffee Mix, or Tea Lover’s Mix?

    How thoughtful of you to share your box and a great way to try new flavors! Maybe you can stand around the Keurig and discuss Easter plans and fun.

  2. OMG…who needs flower of the month…?!?! Lol This is awesome! Thank you for sharing!!

  3. Robin (Masshole Mommy) says:

    That is an awesome way to try new flavors! I totally want to sign up for this.

  4. I wish we had this when i worked in the office. I did not know they had a subscription service.

  5. oh and to feed my great love for caffeine 😀

  6. I like to keep a nice variety of k-cups and coffee creamers around the house. That way if we have visitors, or are just personally in a different kind of mood, there’s enough variety to choose from.

  7. This is a great idea! I love that you offer more than coffee- spice it up a little for the tea drinkers!

  8. How nice of you to share. I would love a way to try new flavors and to leave out when we have a bbq. I really love people can decide for themselves and still chat around the kitchen 🙂

  9. That’s awesome! I love my Keurig. This is such an awesome way to try new flavors.

  10. I just love that they have Cider and cocoa cups! I am a huge fan of cocoa! And since I don’t drink coffee I never thought about one of these machines. But now that they have the cider and cocoa cups, I really want one! 🙂

  11. I have never heard of mixcups but love the idea of it. I love sitting around my Keurig and just loving the moment of life 🙂

  12. Natalie Nichols says:

    This is a great idea. I would love to try out some new flavors this way!

  13. I love my Kreuig, this is great that they offer this. It gives you a nice variety.

  14. I would choose either the tea lovers kit or the standard coffee kit. YUM.

  15. Ann Bacciaglia says:

    The Tea lovers kit would be perfect for me. I have always wanted to try a Kurig. There are so many great flavors to choose from.

  16. I have a Keurig and I love having an assortment of flavors to suit my mood.

  17. Heather McKenzie Carter says:

    THis has been a big “thing” in our family lately… buying various samplers and sharing them. I didnt know this even existed. It would save us from buying a box at a time and sharing 😛

  18. I’d take the tea lovers pack since I don’t like coffee.

  19. Sherry Hoernig says:

    My daughter got one of these for Christmas & absolutely loves it!!! I’ve hinted to my husband that I think it would be an awesome investment for us, as we don’t make coffee during the week since I can only drink one cup of coffe a day, & he doesn’t drink any until he gets to work. I don’t think he has quite picked up on it just yet, But I am persistant, & I will persevere!!! Lolol!!!

  20. Great tips for stocking a station near the Keurig. We have one in our home and LOVE the flexibility it provides compared to a straight pot of coffee.

  21. Julie Wood says:

    I do not drink my coffee any other way but in a Keurig. I love how delicious the coffee tastes and I like to try different flavors.
