Review: Tully's French Roast & Kona Blend K-Cups

Review from Single Serve Coffee.com - Coffee Pod Reviews Img 2211 If you own a Keurig B-40 Elite, Keurig B50 Gourmet, Keurig B-60 Special Edition brewer then very soon you're going to be able to get your hands on some of this amazing French Roast & Kona blends coffee in K-cups from Tully's Coffee.

We received this coffee earlier in the week and have been sampling through both the Kona Blend and the French roast - what can we say? The Tully's French Roast knocked us down dead in our coffee drinking tracks and the Kona blend? A very interesting medium roast coffee that also is very good.

The French roast is the first K-Cup coffee in a long time to have that crispy dark french roast bite and finish you expect to get when mixing down a little milk and sugar with it. The result is a super smoky taste with a feeling of being right in a coffee house - perhaps a Tully's coffee house? :-)

Img 2214The Tully's French Roast is in their Extra Bold Category - so that means there's an extra amount of coffee in the K-Cup to provide you with extra flavor and taste. Trust me - you can taste it. We emptied out a new french roast K-Cup and found there to be the stated 11.5 grams of coffee (note: the napkin weighed in at .2 grams so just deduct).

What else can we say? It's just really good French Roast coffee. Really good.

Tasting the Kona Blend K-Cups from Tully's Coffee

Img 2208Another win for Tully's. If you like a smooth not too daring but yummy medium roast coffee - this is for you. There is a tiny floral note when drinking but the shear smoothness of the coffee is amazing. We really liked how the coffee stayed tasty right until the non-bitter end. This is really good Kona blend coffee and IN A K-CUP.

Since this isn't stated as being extra bold we didn't weigh this coffee in. But at both the 5.25 oz size and the 7.25 oz setting on the Keurig B60 - the coffee tasted great.

Tully's K-Cups Availability

Now the Tully's K-Cups won't be available for a little while - according to Jason at Keurig:

I just wanted to mention that Keurig is very excited about Tully's as a new roaster offering K-Cups for our Keurig brewers. For those of you who are anxiously awaiting availability - while I can't give you an exact date - you can expect them very, very soon!

We're going to give Tully's French Roast a solid 4.5 and the Kona Blend medium roast a solid 4.5 cups. These are great coffees - so just hang in there - they'll be out soon and worth the wait.

6-19-2007 I love the Tully's French Roast. An extra bold that brews a great 7.25 cup. Available now at Bed Bath and Beyond for 9.99 an 18 pk. And you can use a store coupon for a discount. I haven't tasted a k-cup I like better. The Tully's are "not" all extra bold. The Kona is best on the 5.25 if you like a more robust brew. It loses flavor at any other setting.

I was just checking out coffeewhiz, and they seem to indicate that ALL of the Tullys K-Cups are extra bold. Is this true? Can anyone confirm this?

I don't have the time to keep coming back and looking for these items. I wish I could pre-order a bunch of cases and find them at my door when I come home from work after a long day. I really want to try these 2 coffees!

Jay - thanks for posting reviews so quickly! Of course seeing you give these coffees 4.5 just makes the wait all that much longer. Hopefully Jason's "very, very soon" remark means they're only a few days away.

I have been living on D&H French Roast and GJ Mudslide for quite some time now (mixing in 7-8 others that are good, just not as good to my taste buds). I can't wait to try the Tulley's

Thanks for the heads up, now the waiting game begins!!!

Did you happen to get any of the decaf french roast? I actually hope it is not as good, otherwise I may have to take out a second job if I start drinking that much decaf at night!
