Inside the lid of the box, lists the coffees provided this month, a short bio about each coffee and the location and website of the coffee brand. It’s very helpful, but I wish it was written on a postcard than printed on an adhesive paper. This would be helpful for those that want to keep the card in the kitchen or elsewhere nearby for reference.
Here’s a close up of all the K-Cups received this month.
Door County – Mocha Mint – Value: $3.75 ($8.99 for 12 K-Cups)
This was the first coffee I tried. I was so intrigued by the flavor name. I’d never had a mint coffee before this review. I’m a fan of mint and chocolate ice cream, but it turns out not the same in a hot drink. I’ll drink it, but I would think twice about purchasing this flavor combination for a hot beverage in the future.
Twisted Pine – Cafe Allonge – Value: $2.91 ($6.99 for 12 K-Cups)
This was the second coffee I picked out the next morning. It’s a dark roast and it is intense! I remember adding a bit more soy milk for the first cup. #iwasntready For tastebud reference, my favorite “brew at home” coffee of all time, or until further notice, is Starbuck’s Caramel, a medium roasted blend. I enjoyed this cup of Joe and will have no problem polishing them all off this month.
CoffeeIcon – 100% Sumatran – Value: $2.71 ($12.99 for 24 K-Cups)
I must be a medium roast kind of girl! This coffee is also medium roasted and it was my favorite flavor of the three this month. In the words of Goldilocks, “it was just right.” For all my coffees, I used the same soy milk and honey to have some sort of consistency. This one was so smooth and easy on my palette. I would definitely consider purchasing this for the house, and it’s also much more affordable than my precious Starbuck’s Caramel.
Verdict: Single Cup Club had an estimated retail value over $9.00. The value is significantly lower than the actual cost to the subscriber, though shipping costs for the subscription were not included in the overall value. A suggestion to increase the value is to add an additional product to the subscription that also stays in line with the theme of the subscription itself. So, when I think of coffee, I think of reading a book or magazine. Either one of these could potentially raise the value to meet the costs. I personally enjoyed reviewing each coffee, and encourage all coffee drinkers to step out of their comfort zone and try something new.
