This one is pretty self-explanatory – you’ll be getting 13 K-Cups to try for $7.99 – which is returned to you in store credit so you can buy more K-Cups!
Peet’s is a brand I’m familiar with from my time in California – that being said, I don’t believe I’ve tried their coffee via K-Cup.
I drink my coffee black – and I’ve had a lot of issues with k-cups tasting a bit plastic-y, which is why I stick primarily to Starbucks K-Cups – in my opinion, they taste the most like a normally brewed coffee from a K-Cup.
Both Peet’s cups were really tasty! I really like my coffee to taste like sold and bold coffee – and these two hit the spot without anything interfering.
Brooklyn Bean Roastery
Wow! These were some incredible flavors. Their basic dark and medium blends were perfectly brewed and tasty by itself – but I was most interested in trying the Maple Sleigh.
As I said above, I steer clear of anything flavored when it comes to coffee – but naturally, I had to try this for the review! Let me just say, the scent during and after brewing was such a strong maple scent that it smelled like I had just finished some pancakes – it was really a fantastic smell. More importantly, the taste was really good – a pleasant surprise for a boring coffee drinker like myself.
Breakfast blends are not really in my wheelhouse either – just a bit too light for my taste. Green Mountain is a brand that I’ve had plenty of times from Costco, and overall, it’s alright, but not preferred for me.
The Original Donut Shop
Again, this is a very well-known Keurig brand of coffee which I’ve had plenty of times. Much like the above coffee, it’s just never been a coffee that I’ve enjoyed – to me, it’s too light.
Like Green Mountain above, I’ve tried Newman’s Own plenty of times as well. For me, it’s another that doesn’t capture what I define as a bold coffee taste from the Keurig. That being said, the company itself is pretty cool and donates 100% of profits to charity!
This was the pleasant surprise of the box for me. I’ve had Caribou Coffee from their coffee shop, but never via K-Cup. I made the assumption that it’d be like most K-Cups (for me) and would lose that taste when brewed in the Keurig. I happily found out that I was wrong on this assumption since this cup of coffee packed a nice bold punch!
Verdict: I’m not really sure how much a single K-Cup might cost, but I’m betting you’ll end up close to the cost of the box – and that’s before you get all of the money back in credit anyway. I love coffee, I’m always excited to get my brew going in the morning, and am happy to try something new – so this kind of hit all of the checkboxes for me!
