Bright and Early Coffee Jamaica Me Crazy Blend – value: $2 total
This roast is described as “Kahlua, caramel, and vanilla over perfectly roasted Central American coffee beans to create this Island Blend.” I tried this one first since caramel and vanilla are my favorite flavors in my coffee! Unfortunately, when I tried this black, it was pretty weak and the flavor wasn’t very rich. When I mixed in my usual cream and sugar, it was really not good. I brewed this using the largest cup option on my Keurig, so this blend may taste better if I use the smaller cup option so I’ll try that next time, but I like drinking more coffee than that.
Twisted Pine Organic Sumatra Blend – 5 cups, value: $2.70 total
The info sheet describes this as “earthy and rich with natural smokey and maple syrup tones. Very rich and craft roasted to medium dark roast.” I know I love earthy coffee, but some maple syrup tones sound heavenly too! I tried this black, and I loved it! And with my regular cream and sugar it was delicious, too. This was my favorite blend this month.
Coffee Icon Double Barrel Blend – value: $2.70 total
I like my coffee pretty strong, so I thought I’d love this blend. It’s described as “we take 2 barrels of beans and combine and roast dark for a blend that will blow you away.” Well, this must be a DARK, dark roast! When I tried it black, I could definitely say it “blew me away,” haha. It’s very strong. With my usual cream and sugar it was much more drinkable. I like this, but I have to doctor it up a bit for my personal taste!
Verdict: I really like the concept of Single Cup Club. I like trying different blends and roasts with my Keurig, so I had fun with this box. The only thing I feel like you have to consider is the value. I think a lot of value comes from the curation and discovery aspect from this. 15 single-serve cups for $15 is pretty steep when compared to how many you can get for $15 at the grocery store. So, if you love exploring different coffees and trying blends you never would have found on your own, and own a Keurig, this subscription might be for you!
