Keto Coffee Recipe & Keurig K-Duo Essentials Review

If you are like me, then you love coffee. I have only been a coffee person since I had children of my own. I honestly have no idea how I survived being a nanny without it. I actually started drinking it when I became a "working stay-at-home mom" which means I was watching my friend's little girl too and had to wake up oh so early so she could drop her off every morning.

My coffee habits have evolved now. I like the taste of coffee way more than I use to and since I enjoy it so much more than I use to, I would drink it all day every day if I could! I don't use as much creamer and definitely not as much sugar in it as I use to.

Our first single serve coffee maker served it's purpose for a little while, but it was time for an upgrade. I have been a HUGE fan of Keurig brand coffee makers since our first one we have ever owned. Each one had different features that we love. We even owned a Keurig 2.0 for a little, but the newest Keurig K-Duo Essentials is by far our favorite because it fits all of our needs while being a budget friendly option. I think I would make a great gift for the office. I also think it would be perfect for people who are like my sister-in-law and her husband. He drinks an entire pot of coffee made his way while she prefers just a cup or two made a little stronger with cream/sugar.

What make the Keurig Duo Essentials different? A Keurig 2.0 is a great option if you want an entire carafe of coffee, but the issue is buying the special pods. With the K-Duo Essentials, you can still have single serve cups of coffee, but use ground coffee when you want to make a pot (or more than one cup). It makes a 12 cup carafe and also has a heating plate to keep your coffee warm.

My favorite part is the large reservoir. My husband and I like to go through some coffee and with a 60 oz. reservoir, we don't feel like we are filling up the tank every two cups of coffee. The K-Duo Essentials™ Coffee Maker is travel mug friendly and can brew multiple sizes, such as an 8-, 10-, or 12-cup carafe and an 8, 10, or 12 oz. cup. My second favorite feature is the Smart Start feature which allows your coffee maker to heat, then brew in one simple process so there is no need to wait for it to heat before selecting your cup size.

If you are interested in purchasing, Keurig® K-Duo Essentials™ Coffee Maker is available to purchase exclusively at Walmart in the kitchen appliances and coffee maker aisles. 

So, I promised I would share a keto coffee recipe. And this one is so super easy too! If you drink black coffee, then awesome! You are already enjoying keto-friendly coffee. And if you are like me and need more than heavy whipping cream in your coffee, then keep reading. Make a cup of coffee, then add in Purely Inspired Organic Protein Shake. They come in different flavors and only 1 net carb! Told you, super easy and yummy!

What I have been noticing more and more that even my favorite store brand flavors are becoming Keurig brand certified coffee. I have also noticed that many people are worried about how to clean a Keurig which is the problem on why they don't purchase one, but I have never had an issue with any of mine that I have owned. Make a vinegar/water solution and make sure to process through enough cycles so that it is completely cleared out. And do this about once a month or so and you will always have a refreshing cup of coffee! If you have any problems, Keurig has always been so helpful whenever I have had to contact them. Great customer service is key whenever I consider working with a brand.

If you have any questions, please comment with them below and I will answer them the best I can. 

Do you drink coffee? What are your thoughts on single serve machines? What do you think about the Keurig K-Duo Essentials Coffee Maker?

  1. A couple of years ago for our anniversary, my granddaughter helped me buy a Keurig 2.0 for my husband, who is a bigger coffee junkie than I am. She used her discount, which really helped, because our anniversary is the day after Christmas ��He said he didn’t want a one cup coffee machine. He wanted a pot of real coffee ☕️ He changed his mind once he made a cup. This Keurig came with a carafe just in case he wouldn’t try it. I’ll certainly buy this new one if the Keurig we have now gives out!! It’s got the best of both coffee drinking worlds!! I pinned this on 3 different boards. Thank you for sharing!

  2. I really like that you can still make a whole pot of coffee if you want to


Thank you for dropping by! I would love to hear what you thought. :)
