OneCup Keurig Compatible Coffee Packs from Rogers Gourmet Coffee and Tea

  k_cup_one_cup_coffee.jpg

Rogers Gourmet Coffee and Tea Market has released a set of four OneCup Keurig compatible coffee packs. Simply called OneCup they have also been called in the press - compatible coffee packs or pods. This is the second aftermarket K-Cup like coffee offering, but unlike the Grove Square compatible K-Cups which uses instant coffee, the OneCup Keurig compatible coffee packs have a mesh bottom so they get around the puncture patent Keurg currently has on K-Cups until September 2012 as the coffee passes right through them with no puncture needed.

We're not sure how good or bad these new OneCup coffee pods are from Rogers, but we've put in an order to get a set and try out the four flavors - OneCup Organic Rainforest, Fogchaser, OneCup French Roast, and OneCup French Roast Decaf. We have info and shots of each flavor after the jump.

OneCup French Roast - We take a blend of fine coffees from Central and South America and roast it very dark, until the flavor oils rise to surface of the bean. A coffee with an intense, smoky flavor...not for the faint of heart

Fogchaser A blend of our favorite coffees to lift away the morning "fog." Central and South American coffees, all choice, high grown, and hand picked. The result is full bodied and well balanced -- a real eye-opener.

One Cup Organic Rainforest - their certified organic, Rainforest Blend is an artful mix of coffees from Colombia, Mexico, Guatemala, and Indonesia that produces a smooth, yet full-bodied taste with lively acidic notes.

I live in Arizona and my Costco carries these amazing delicious so inexpensive k-cups.

They end up to be .33 cents a cup and they taste amazing. My Costco only carries the French Roast I hope they will get more of the other blends in.

I purchased 3 of the 80 count boxes.

I am very curious to try the One Cup, also VERY curious to see what happens with the Kcup over the next year. We are a dedicated distributor of Kcups and pods. What we have seen the Kcup do is raise the bar on the quality of coffee. A bad cup of coffee is no longer acceptable. It has to be gourmet, it has to taste good. Pods for example were terrible when they first arrived on the market, not anymore! They have had to fight tooth and nail to compete with the quality of the kcup. We have discovered Marley Coffee pods (amazing!) and Donut Shop Classics. Both rival if not beat Kcups. We all owe Keurig and Green Mountain a big thank you for providing such a great high quality product that has revolutionized the industry and made other single serve venues stand up and take notice.

These compatible cups are a cross breed design resembling a Kcup top with a pod body.
They come 12 servings sealed in a vacuum bag with freshness seal. This is then placed in a attractive retail type box
that would look right at home on the shelf next to kcups at your favorite retail store.
The front of the Box has a drawing of a kcup machine and a blow up of the 1 cup inserted in it.
It also lists a few of the compatible keurig type brewers it will work in.
The top and back of the box has some photos of environmental projects that the Rogers Family has been involved in.
one side has a photo of the rodgers family and their mission statementother sideerside descriptionptionn of the coffee contained in the box.
I can see how these should sell well in the retail setting and also appeal to environment conscious individual and those who are just curious about a new alternative to the standard kcup.
I have a Box of Fog Chaser described on the box as a blend with the body of our regular roast and the smokiness of our French roast. A heavy full bodied with hints of cedar,vanilla and toasted almonds
balanced with a delicate finish with honey and milk chocolate flavors. Sure sounds appealing to me.
When I cut the seal on bag I'm hit with a very strong dark roast scent right away and something poignant but can't place the smell. Maybe it's the ceder they describe on the box and I'm intrigued to brew and try it.
Fits in my B70 perfectly and I use the 7.25 oz drop as I normally do. Smells good during brewing just like the extra bold dark roast Kcups I normally drink.
Brewed perfectly with no issues. Smells and tastes great in the Cup. Strong full bodied french roast with a smooth finish and I like it as does the wife.
I'm not one to name flavors and stuff like that so you will have to try it yourself for a more specific taste profile. Suffice it to say I give Fog Chaser a Big thumbs and i'm now waiting for the wife to Finnish making her second cup so I can make mine .

I have already tried all the four blends.
Much better than the Keurig ones.
Apart from the great taste, there is much less plastic!
Finally a real alternative with real coffee: no more K-monopoly.
Good job Rogers!!!
