Review: Emeril's Original Big Easy Bold K-Cup Coffee
Having been to the Big Easy and dined at Emeril's restaurant very near Harrah's Casino, we were very excited to have a little taste of New Orleans grace our single serve coffee cup. Emeril's Original Big Easy Bold K-Cup Coffee is supposed to be a dark and intense cup of single serve coffee for your Keurig Elite B40 Brewer, Keurig B50, Keurig Special Edition Ultra Elite B60, and the Keurig B70 Brewer. How intense and delicious is it?
We're really impressed with this coffee. The overall flavor, aroma, and quality of the coffee is quite good. The coffee is also for dark K Cup coffee drinkers only. The profile of the roast is nothing short of a black hole of coffee, but it doesn't suffer from being burnt or too intense. The overall mouth feel is also very good - round and a bit sharp in the back of the throat with a lingering rich flavor. We really like the Emeril's Original Big Easy Bold K-Cup Coffee and think if you're a dark coffee drinker you'll love it too.
- Aroma - 9 - rich and interesting
- Acidity - 8 - a near perfect match - maybe a bit much for light drinkers
- Body - 9 - full and intense - can we say we want to drink the entire box?
- Flavor - 8 - delicious and interesting
- Mouth Feel - 7 - good but the biting in the back of the throat may be too intense for some
- Coffee Drinker - Dark coffee drinker. This is a very dark intense cup of strong coffee
Overall Rating: 86 - Good
We really like this coffee and it ranks high for a very intense coffee. Don't go for this coffee if your a medium to light coffee drinker. Congrats to Emeril for getting a great K Cup out there that is very unique and different.

I bought my wife the Keurig system in Feb 2010. Now I am not a big coffee drinker, but when I do drink, my wife would use the Cusinart ground and brew system. Which after 5 years broke down in January, and my wife "ordered" me to get a new one. Burning my man card, I did so. A month later after attending a party my wife fell in love with the K-System. I enjoy a VERY bold cup of coffee - we would use the Starbucks Sumatra since that was some of the strongest outside Espresso I can find. I came across Emeril's Big Easy Intense - and now I am addicted - where at the most I would have one cup a day I now have to have at least two - truly a wonderful cup of coffee. Particularly when you have a coupon for Bed Bath, and Beyond and when it’s on sale - you can wind up paying $6.40 for a box.
