Mama Needs Her Coffee and Fast #KraftMeACoffee

I’ve never been a morning person; when I was younger sleeping in until noon was fine by me. As kids join the picture you become a morning person, whether you like it or not, and because of that coffee is like air to me. Grabbing a cup of freshly brewed coffee one of the first things I do in the morning; it’s part of my morning routine. I purposely set my alarm just a little early to allow myself time for a cup of coffee in silence before the sounds of pitter patter of tiny feet and the nattering of teens echoes throughout the house. It’s a race to see if I can brew a cup of coffee, and enjoy it, before the kids are up and pulling me in all directions; the new Kraft Keurig®* Compatible Pods are my perfect race juice.



With a large family running me ragged, half the time I’m not sure if I’m here or there; by the end of the day, I’d be surprised if I wasn’t asleep before my head hits the pillow. I don’t stay that way of course, Baby Ro certainly doesn’t allow me to sleep through the night. I’m still a nursing mom which means I’m up more times than I’d like to count through for night feeds, leaving me exhausted and reaching for my morning wake up in a cup, the stronger coffee the better.





Hubs leaves for work early which means a full pot of brewed coffee doesn’t make sense. By the time he’s had his freshly brewed morning coffee and I’m awake and moving about, that freshly brewed coffee isn’t so fresh. For this reason a single serve coffee maker was the perfect purchase. Each of us has different coffee preferences, he likes his coffee strong and I like mine with a little blended flavour. The three flavours of the new Kraft Keurig®* Compatible Pods are already well known to us and are available in the brands we love including Nabob, Maxwell House, and Gevalia,. We drink them regularly in our regular coffee maker; having them now available for our Keurig® machine is much more convenient, cutting time in an already busy morning schedule.

Mornings where I get a few minutes of silence before the household is bustling, checking my household plants with my first freshly brewed morning coffee is my absolute favourite me-time moment of the day. Green Thumbs will know exactly what I’m speaking of here; it’s my special moment of happy.




It’s tough to pick a favourite Kraft Keurig®* Compatible Pods flavour; I prefer a different kind of coffee at different times of the day. Early, EARLY, mornings have me reaching for the Maxwell House Dark Roast with the deep flavour and just the right amount of energy burst I need on those not-so-rested mornings. If I’m rested or I’m enjoying a more relaxed morning because the kids are sleeping in, laughable really, I prefer the blended flavours of the Nabob Breakfast Blend. Add in my creamer and it’s the perfect combination for an enjoyable morning and that is a great start to every day in my chaotic household, the calm before the storm.

The Nabob Keurig®* Compatible Pods’s tag line is “Coffee. Pure and Simple.”; I couldn’t agree more. Coffee doesn’t have to be complicated; I’m a busy mom and I don’t want to think about what is in every blend of coffee. Nabob stands by their authentic, crafted coffees, that you can taste the delicious difference of over 115 years of coffee expertise and passion in every cup. The Nabob Breakfast Blend makes choosing a blended coffee flavour easy, perfectly blended and taking all the guess work out of a flavourful cup of coffee for busy people like me.

  8. Thank you so much! I was one of the lucky winners that received 3 boxes of Keurig Compatible Pods!! I received 2 boxes of Maxwell House – Dark Roast. I like a darker, more full-bodied brew and this was perfect as that first freshly brewed cup of morning coffee. I also received a box of Gevalia – Signature Blend. I served this after a family dinner and everyone loved it! It had the perfect notes to accompany dessert!
