What can we say about our Moms that hasn’t already been said a thousand times over?  She’s the one who always calmed our fears, boosted our egos, defended our honor (even when we were wrong), kissed all our boo-boo’s and cheered us on every step of the way.  She’s also the one person we probably take for granted.  Thankfully, there’s Mother’s Day!

The celebration of Mother’s Day dates back to the early 1900’s when Anna Jarvis, an Appalachian homemaker, organized a day to raise awareness of poor health conditions in her community, a cause she believed would be best advocated by mothers. She called it “Mother’s Work Day.” After her death in 1905, her daughter, also named Anna Jarvis, began a campaign to memorialize her mother’s charitable works.  That eventually led to the adoption of a Resolution and the eventual Bill that was signed by President Woodrow Wilson in 1914, officially declaring the second Sunday of May as “Mother’s Day.”

Stumped for a special gift for your mom this year?  Why not take advantage of our special offer on the Keurig Pro brewer?  Mom’s sure to love this one-cup coffee maker that comes with three free boxes of K-cups!  That's 66 FREE K-cups plus free shipping anywhere in the U.S.  This deal is too good to be true ... Just like your incredible Mom!

Coming Soon ....

The Royal Wedding is right around the corner, and we’re just as obsessed with the event as everyone else!  Broadcasts of the ceremonies will begin at  5:30 am EST here in the States on April 29th.  We’re going to be watching, sipping a hot cup of English Breakfast Black Tea and eating a crumpet (not really).  Will you be watching and what will you be drinking?

Meantime, back at onecupconnection, we’re busily working on some new features that we think will make our site and our service even better! Check back frequently for news about the upcoming Flavor of the Month Club, where you can sign on to automatically receive a featured K-cup sampler with every order  you place.  This is a great way to ensure that you get to try seasonal favorites and exciting new flavors.

Welcome, Coffee Lovers!

We get it.  Coffee isn’t very exciting. Sure there are people out there who can tell you about the subtleties of taste, character of the roast and the origin of the bean right down to the name of the farmer who picked it. And maybe those things are important to you. But if you’re like us, they’re probably not. All we really care about is starting our day with a great cup of coffee.

That’s why this blog won’t always be about coffee. Sure, we’ll keep you up to date on our business and the latest industry trends, but we’d much rather get to know you and have some fun along the way. So think of this as more of a place to chat with friends and talk about current events or anything else you might find interesting. And we promise to offer you some great deals with almost every post.

So go ahead, jump right in. Share your stories, tell a joke or ask a question and we promise to do the same.  And check back often to make sure you don’t miss out on any of the great deals, fun contests and interesting content that make onecupconnection a really cool place to buy coffee!
