Best K Cup Coffee You Haven’t Tried


[amazon table=”12635″ link_id=”20358″]

John Sylvan, the co-founder of Keurig and inventor of its revolutionary single-serve brewer, had a bone to pick. He had one cup of stale office coffee that has been sitting in a pot for hours too many. Sylvan was convinced that there was a better way of drinking coffee in an office environment. So, he quit his job and set out to create a machine that will turn his single-brew concept into reality. It took him several years of trial and error, but finally, in 1998, Keurig B2000 single-serve coffee brewer hit the market, and the rest is history.

Today, more than 20 years later, we have a wide selection of single-serve K cups, made by various coffee brewers. Keurig coffee makers can now be found in many homes, not just offices. The huge demand for coffee has spurred manufacturers all over the country to create various flavors we have these days. We have now reached a point that there are so many choices that it is hard to decide which of those K cups to try.

If you are new to Keurig, probably your best choice would be this. It is a Coffee Variety Pack Sampler containing 40 different coffee from some of the most recognizable brands in the industry, including Green Mountain, Martinson, Marley Coffee, Folger’s, Newman’s Own, Wolfgang Puck, Crazy Cups, Cake Boss, and Skinny Girl. There are several themed packs to choose from, like Flavored Coffee, Decaf, or Mixed Variety. What they all have in common is that all 40 cups will be different, allowing you to sample the widest range of coffee available for Keurig on the market. All cups are compatible with Keurig 2.0 machine.

Another excellent K cup from Green Mountain, the parent company of Keurig. Caramel, vanilla, and brown sugar, all mixed in with excellent coffee, are bound to produce some amazing results. It is just like sundaes, except you don’t have to feel guilty about having it. Unlike sundaes, these Caramel Vanilla Cream K-Cup won’t demand that you run to the gym to work off those extra calories. While it may not be a suitable morning coffee, it is perfect for the afternoon, once you are settled down and ready for some me-time.

Another vanilla-flavored treat, this time from Dunkin’ Donuts. Made from medium roast Arabica beans, these pods are made according to the original Dunkin’ Donuts recipe, guaranteeing the same flavor and aroma you would get in any of their shops, but in the comfort of your own home.

Can you think a better way of starting your day than with a taste and smell of freshly-baked cinnamon rolls? Yes, neither can we. This perfect cup of deliciousness is made from light roast Arabica beans, brown sugar, and added a flavor of cinnamon rolls. On top, you get that perfect frosting Cinnabon is so proud of, and rightly so. It is hard to believe that they manage to capture the taste so perfectly until you try one of these K cups, that is.

Ideal for those who prefer to start their day on a gentle and sweet note, Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Breakfast Blend is not the coffee to kick you with every mouthful.

This light roast from Green Mountain comes with full, rich flavor and medium acidity, perfect for a pleasant start of your day.

What We Liked

  • Delicious balanced flavor
  • Great price point
  • Amazing Ethiopian Blend flavor

What We Didn’t Like

Tully’s Coffee is trendy among K cup users, and their Breakfast Blend is their best-seller. It is made from 100% Arabica coffee beans. Light roast preserves its mild and mellow taste, with citrusy notes, ideal for those lazy mornings when you want to stay inside with a good book and a cup of joe beside you. Its rich taste doesn’t come with any bitterness or overwhelming flavor. These K cups are compatible with almost all Keurig machines, except Keurig Vue Coffee System.

What We Liked

  • Has rich, smooth taste
  • Its great when frozen in a fruit cup
  • Best tasting decaf
  • Excellent price

What We Didn’t Like

  • The k cup design requires that I have to run the k cup twice for each cup of coffee. It’s size seems to be a bit larger than all of our other brands and affects the brewing process.

The most popular San Francisco Bay Coffee, French Vanilla is made with wild German Hazelnuts and vanilla cream.

[lasso ref=”wolfgang-puck-jamaican-me-crazy-96-k-cups-flavored” id=”12648″ link_id=”20366″]

In the end, we have something exotic. Wolfgang Puck Jamaican Me Crazy Coffee Capsules are made from medium roast estate-grown beans of premium quality and a healthy dose of coconut for that rich, tropical flavor.
