Review: AH French Roast Coffee Pods

Review from Single Serve Coffee.com - Coffee Pod Reviews Last Roll - 76Wendy from Typical Dutch Stuff sent us in a sampler pack of AH coffee pods to review. The coffee pods come individually wrapped and weigh in at 7 grams each. At 7 grams, these are sized identically to the Senseo coffee pods and if you want to brew a double cup at 8 oz, you'll need to use 2 coffee pods. When you order a sampler pack, you will get 2 of each of the following flavors; Dutch Roast, French Roast, Italian Roast, Java Blend, Ethiopia Blend, and Brazil Blend.

Last Roll - 53Before we get into tasting the coffee, it was quite an ordeal to get a cup brewed. I'm having this cup of AH French Roast brewed from a Senseo single serve coffee machine deep in the northern California mountains, just a little northwest of a little town called Hyampom.

Last Roll - 79-1I'm here visiting my in-laws with my wife and daughter and I'm enjoying this cup of coffee off the grid. Yesterday to ensure we had enough power to fire up the Senseo so I could review coffee pods here in California, we had to hike up the creek and clean out the blocked pelton wheel.

Last Roll - 80-1You have to appreciate a cup of coffee that you hiked nearly 3 miles, laid down in a creek cleaning out leaves from an intake for the water to power the pelton wheel, and then returning in the morning for some charged batteries, and praying the coffee maker didn't kill the entire amount of power you made in the night.

Tasting the AH French Roast Single Serve Coffee

Last Roll - 86Well - the French Roast coffee is pretty darn good and worth the three mile hike required to brew it. We are enjoying not only the coffee, but the setting in the mountains . The 4oz cup of coffee we brewed almost had a mocha java flavor about it and was very smooth and had an excellent finish. We also brewed up some Dutch Roast and found it to be equally as good.


Each time I come to Hyampom, I'm amazed at how lucky one is to enjoy any of the modern wonders like coffee machines, computers, and the telephone. The AH French Roast coffee pods are a nice addition to this setting and we recommend trying out a sampler pack for yourself. Good stuff.

We are going to give the AH Coffee Pods a 3.5 out of 5 pods.

I will add the company/online store locationin the future to each review. Thanks for the feedback.

yikes, that's some pricey coffee bob..

I like reading checking out all of the coffee shops and articles here, whether I'd buy or not, so it's no biggie to me. However, not all online stores are straightforward with shipping cost and locations (especially for worldwide orders) and they often wait until the final page of your order to stab the shipping stick in your eye. Thus, I see why some people would rather simply know in the review where the company is based so that they don't have to even bother..

keep reviewing all pods etc.,please...I live in the dominican republic aqnd all my stuff comes in the mail with about a 20%vat on top of the shipping...so I could care less about the price,or where it comes from.....all my coffee cups are probably $2.00 or more,but if you like coffee,oh well...I enjoy your site and have learned a lot...

Just wanted to say - they are available to US customers, and even though they are expensive to ship to the US, you can get them and other pods from all over the place if you want to pay a little more.

I'm actually going to be reviewing Canadian based pods soon, as I have had them sent to me and think it will be interesting. Even though the site seems US centric, about 25% of the traffic is from all over the place and a great deal from the UK.

We're going to continue to review some things you can afford and some things you might not be able to afford but I think in the end it's being able to have access to the products via the site and get a full picture of the entire Single Serve Coffee landscape.

maybe reviews of products should be clearly labeled with some sort of "location" identifier.. that way if the product is only available in the US or the UK, visitors can see that immediately and choose whether they want to read it or not.

I personally don't care one way or the other, but I will admit that I have gotten all excited over products in the past to find that I'd have to ship them from outside of the US and the cost became too prohibitive..

I don't wanna get all nationalistic, but it's pretty clear that this site & the visitors are pretty US-centric. So why tease us by reviewing Dutch pods & other things (i.e., showing Euro Senseos & other machines)that you say aren't availible in the US (or stuff that's cost-prohibitive when shipping charges are figured). Sure, they GIVE you some samples to try & review, but that just frustrates us when you say it's great but the cost would end up being like $1.50 a pod!
Again, no biggie...I'm not bent outta shape or anything. But I come here to learn about product that I can buy at reasonable prices, not to see what we CAN'T get here.
