Lipton Soothe Smooth Green Tea K-Cups Review

IMGP5529 green tea

In what seems to be a never-ending quest for Keurig to secure just about every major coffee & tea brand on the market, they’ve managed to secure yet another one this year and it’s a big one. We’re talking about the partnership between Keurig and Lipton Teas to produce Liption Tea K-Cups. We heard news that Tetley would release K-Cups around the same time as their T-Disc releases, but that never materialized, so on a rare trip to a local Wal-Mart (we can already hear some Tar-jay fans getting nauseated at the thought) we couldn’t resist to pick-up a box of the only Lipton flavor they had available… Lipton Soothe Smooth Green Tea K-Cups.

Starbucks Willow/Aria Blend K-Cups Review

 

ReviewstarbuckswillowariablendkcupsIMGP5693

It’s been a while since we’ve seen any new K-Cups from Starbucks, but they did promise to expand their line-up and this appears to be the case as new flavors have started popping up on store shelves recently. All aimed at promoting the Blonde Roast (Starbucks’ lightest roast level), the newest flavor to appear is what we’re checking out today and it is also billed as thelightest of the blonde roast series: Starbucks Willow Blend K-Cups. You’re probably wondering what’s up with the Willow/Aria Blend review title, but more on that later.

Kauai Coffee is now available in K-Cups. Their single serve coffee cup features an easy-flow filter design, allowing you to enjoy more coffee aroma and richer flavor every time you brew. The design uses less plastic, making it the eco-friendly, smarter choice for the environment.

The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf Keurig Brewed K-Cup Packs

K cup category 021114

The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf Official Store has CBTL K-Cup packs. Right now they are offering 4 different varieties of Keurig Brewed K-Cups, and they are compatible with Keurig K-Cup Brewing Systems only, thus working in all K-Cup Brewers.

The 4 Varieties include:

  • Café '63 Roast K-Cup Packs
  • Costa Rica K-Cup Packs
  • Toasted Amaretto K-Cup Packs
  • Viennese K-Cup Packs

The agreement between Keurig and CBTL was announced mid last year, but it’s taken quite awhile to get these K-Cups into stores and Keurig brewers. Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf is still selling their CBTL line of espresso and single serve coffee brewers much like Starbucks is selling the Verismo alongside Starbucks K-Cups. 

Have you tried The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf K-Cups? What do you think?

Lavazza to Bring the Flavors of Italy to Keurig K-Cups

USA Lavazza LOGO blu 1

Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Inc., and Luigi Lavazza SpA have announced that they have reached a multi-year agreement Lavazza coffee to K-Cup packs for the Keurig K-Cup brewing systems.

The companies plan to launch Lavazza coffees, Gran Aroma, Classico, Gran Selezione, Perfetto in K-Cup packs for Keurig brewers in the fall of 2014. The new Lavazza K-Cup packs will be marketed as premium products and available at Keurig.com and Lavazza.com as well as at participating specialty, grocery, and away-from-home retailers and operators, throughout the United States. Lavazza K-Cup packs will be available in Canada in 2015. 

After a successful if not lackluster launch and reception of the Rivo Espresso brewing system, it appears Lavazza would like to get more of it’s name into the US market. If the K-Cups are popular perhaps this will bring more attention to the Rivo Espresso brewing system.

Cinnabon Classic Cinnamon Roll K-Cups Review

ReviewcinnabonclassiccinnamonrollkcupsIMGP5684

With the recent news that Cinnabon was the ONLY dining choice at the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics, we figured now was the time to write up a review for the recently introduced Cinnabon Classic Cinnamon Roll K-Cups. We have no idea if any of the Olympic venues or the athlete's village had Keurig single serve brewers installed but we thought it would be interesting to see if our athletes were getting a decent quality coffee at the only dining facility which was open on-site. Will this coffee end up with the gold or go home with a bronze? Lets find out.

Brooklyn Beans Oh Fudge! Single Cups Review

ReviewbrooklynbeanroasteryohfudgesinglecupsIMGP5703

We continue our look at recent BBR (Brooklyn Bean Roastery) Single Cups today with a review of their Oh Fudge! Single Cups. With an image of a spilled bowl of pudding? (we're not quite sure what that is) and the Oh Fudge! wording on the lid of these Single Cups, we can see that BBR are taking a light-hearted approach towards the naming conventions on their new flavors. It just remains to be seen if this will be a serious contender in the flavor arena or if the name is the only thing we enjoy. Lets get started.

Keurig 2.0 Won't Brew Unlicensed K-Cups

KEURIG 20 1 anohter

So we’ve been sitting back and watching various developments and news tidbits on Keurig 2.0, and we wanted to bring up what appears to be the biggest. Keurig 2.0 won’t brew or allow you to use unlicensed K-Cups in the brewer. All Keurig K-Cup portion packs by the Fall and into next year will have some way to ensure that trying to use an unlicensed K-Cup will make the brewer not function and brew the coffee.

We do know that all older K-Cup brewers will brew and continue to work with the K-Cups with this anti-unlicensed graphic or tech built into the K-Cups. So this means your old brewer will continue to work and it can brew unlicensed K-Cups, but if you want to use the K-Carafe packs and we believe VUE packs you’ll need to get a Keurig 2.0.

Krispy Kreme Smooth and Decaf Coffee K-Cups for Keurig Brewers

Krispy kreme kcups

Just when we couldn’t think of another coffee that isn’t on the Keurig K-Cup platform along comes Krispy Kreme Smooth and Decaf Coffees. Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Inc. and Krispy Kreme have reached a multiyear agreement to bring Krispy Kreme® signature coffee to K-Cup packs for the Keurig brewing system. GMCR and Krispy Kreme plan to launch Krispy Kreme coffees, Smooth and Decaf by the end of 2014.

With over 800 shops in more than 20 countries, Krispy Kreme is an internationally recognized retail brand. The company serves premium-quality sweet treats, including its signature Original Glazed doughnut, and a growing selection of roasted coffees and specialty beverages. 

We’re excited to have yet another recognizable brand enter into agreement with Green Mountain Coffee, and if only they could figure out how to brew a Krispy Kreme donut as well. :-)

Brooklyn Beans Coney Island Caramel Single Cups Review

ReviewbrooklynbeanroasteryconeyislandcaramelsingleIMGP5670

We continue our look at recent BBR (Brooklyn Bean Roastery) Single Cups today with a review of their Coney Island Caramel Single Cups. After a pleasant performance from their Cinnamon Subway flavor recently, we were interested to see if the other flavored varieties in their line-up were just as good. BBR can make custom-flavored coffees for anyone who wants to enter the single serve coffee market, so we suspect they have some master coffee roasters who know a thing or two about how to properly flavor coffees. Lets find out if this flavor will have us soaring like a roller coaster or waiting in line for the excitement to start.
