Every evening, without fail, I pour water in my Keurig coffeemaker.

I also, get out my coffee cup, and put it under the spout.

I put in a little coffee pod, where it goes in the machine.

The next morning, all is ready for me to turn the coffeemaker on,

pull the handle, and out comes the hot coffee in less than a minute,

filling the cup just right. 🙂
