New England Coffee Blueberry Cobbler K-Cups Review
We’re introducing something a little new today at Single Serve Coffee, it’s a new format of quick reviews we’re calling Quickviews. These mini reviews of sorts will be considerably shorter than our usual reviews and are more for the TLDR crowd and for those who just want to know What’s the coffee taste like? Is it any good?Is it worth buying?
There won’t be any scores, just a Worth It! or Leave It! recommendation at the end of the review. So without further delay, let’s get started shall we?
Today we decided to check out New England Coffee’s Blueberry Cobbler K-Cups. New England Coffee is one of GMCR’s most recent acquisitions and they converted NEC’s older One Cups into licensed K-Cups as a result. We appreciate this change since we don’t have to worry about a bunch of One Cups going stale after we open the foil bag anymore.
Upon brewing, we get a strong aroma of blueberries up front followed by some subtle notes of cinnamon hiding underneath, much like an actual blueberry cobbler fresh out of the oven. So far, so good. First sip reveals a bit of the opposite as we get the subtly spicy cinnamon notes first, along with some sweet notes of blueberries on the finish. We have yet to see a flavored coffee which is naturally flavored, so we don’t really care that the flavoring is artificial and were expecting this regardless but it seems to be well executed here and yields a tasty cup which lives up to its namesake. Overall, we think this is a worthy competitor to GMCR’s own Wild Mountain Blueberry K-Cups.
We also noticed on the packaging that the coffee was made in the USA and sure enough, this marks the first time in a LONG while we can recall seeing the packaging even being printed in the USA (KGM usually outsource this task to Canada, which always seemed a bit cruel to Canadians in our minds since you know, they can’t get most of these coffees in their own country despite the boxes being printed there). It’s nice to see every aspect of production being kept within USA for a change.
So, what do we think? Is this one worth checking out?
FINAL VERDICT: Worth it!
We would like to note that we found these New England Coffee Blueberry Cobbler K-Cups at a local Hannaford grocery store and purchased them on our own for the purpose of this review. These K-Cups will work in all K-Cup Brewers including Keurig 2.0.
We would also like to thank our Single Serve Coffee correspondent SH for writing this review.
