Lemon Poppy Seed Scones + K250 Coffee Maker for Father’s Day

**This is a sponsored post in collaboration with Keurig.

Fatherhood has a funny way of changing your habits and lifestyle. Up until recently, I was never a coffee drinker, then three years ago my toddler came along—I converted.

Now not a day goes by that I’m not reaching for the brew button on my Keurig®K250 Coffee Maker. I love the convenience of a single cup brew, or when I really need it, a four-cup carafe of coffee.

And that four cup option has been priceless this last week, since I’m recovering from being sick while the toddler is just starting to get sick. Along with that, my Keurig® K250 is designed to read the lid of each K-Cup® or K-Carafe® pod to brew the perfect beverage every time. That means it can go from brewing a rich and bold coffee like Tully’s® Italian Roast Extra Bold Coffee to a flavored K-Cup® pod like a hot chocolate. Keurig® makes it especially easy to operate with just the touch of a button so that even a tired dad can pull off the perfect cup of coffee.

All dads deserve the best, so give the dad in your life the gift of coffee and convenience this Father’s Day. For a limited time, Keurig is offering exclusive Father’s Day bundles so be sure to go check them out on Keurig.com!

You can also find a variety of brewer colors to fit your kitchen design. Of course don’t forget the  K-Cup® pods. I especially love Green Mountain Coffee® because its high quality, responsibly sourced and always freshly roasted. My boys naturally reach for the hot chocolate K-Cup® pods, while Naomi orders them like candy – every variety and color!
