ECS Coffee release own brand of Single Cups for Keurig K-Cup brewers

 

ECS Lineup

Our Canadian Correspondent, SH, has received word from Neil Madden (Founder of ECS Coffee Inc.) regarding the development and recent introduction of ECS’ own in-house brand of Single Cups for Keurig K-Cup brewers. 

Officially dubbed Single Cups, ECS Coffee Inc. have been working on developing these products for the past 8 months in order to fill demand from customers for specific flavor profiles & package sizes in Canada. As it stands, GMCR has strict channel controls on which flavors and package sizes they make available on the Canadian retail market and Neil decided it was time to give customers an alternative choice based on their feedback & requests. Let’s take a quick look at each individual flavor and go over a few other key differences between these products and what’s currently available on the market.

French market coffee kcups

French Market Coffee has introduced single cups for Keurig K-Cup brewers. French Market started roasting coffee over 120 years ago in New Orleans, and this might make it the oldest roaster to join the single serve coffee craze. Chicory and Dark Roast single cups will be available at Rouses supermarkets.

Melitta singlecups upshot solution

Using what appears to be the Upshot Solution - a recyclable K-Cup like single cup, Melitta now has several varieties of their single cups for Keurig brewers.

  • Each is enclosed in a thermal-sealed pack for freshness.

The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf Joins the Keurig Family

 

The Coffee Bean Tea Leaf Opens 42nd Store at Two E Com Center

The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf has joined the Keurig Family. That's right the same company that makes the CBTL Kaldi (check out our CBTL section for more info) and other single serve coffee and espresso machines will be adding K-Cups to their line up in Spring 2014. We're not sure if this affects CBTL's own line of single serve coffee makers and coffees, but the Keurig K-Cup line up just got stronger regardless. Green Mountain continues to be able to get premium roasters into the K-Cup line up, and we are a bit confused on why they can't sign up CBTL for VUE packs for the VUE brewer, but perhaps that news will follow in 2014. Full release after the jump.

Archer Farms Single Cups for Keurig K-Cup Brewers

Photo2 zpsd5c70faf

Over at the Single Serve Coffee Forums we have report and pictures of Archer Farms Single Cups for Keurig K-Cup brewers. Archer Farms in the past has been all about coffee pods, but it makes sense that Target would use the coffee brand to make some Single Cups compatible with K-Cup brewers. 

From the Forums:

6 varieties, 4 of which were available in little 3-cup sample packs. The amount of coffee in these varies a bit but seems to be about at 'extra bold' level, on average. Labeled 'Product of Canada' and look like RealCups. 

We've yet to see these available at Target.com, but checking your local Target should produce some for you. The Archer Farms Single Cups will work in all Keurig K-Cup Brewers.

Review: Brown Gold 100% Colombian Real Cups

Review Single Serve CoffeeReviewbrowngold100colombianrealcupsIMGP5439

We continue our Brown Gold Real Cup review series today by checking out the 3rd flavor in their line-up... Brown Gold 100% Colombian Real Cups.

Brewing these Real Cups resulted in a pleasing aroma overall, comprised by lightly smoked notes of caramel with very faint hints of spices & raisin hiding underneath. Billed as a medium roast, flavor seemed more balanced overall compared to the previous flavors in the Brown Gold line-up as we noticed some slight sour notes at first which quickly gave way to notes of caramel, molasses, chocolate & more faint notes of spices in the background blended by a touch of smoke on the finish.

Review: Brown Gold 100% Peruvian Real Cups

Review Single Serve CoffeeReviewbrowngold100peruvianrealcupsIMGP5431

We continue our Brown Gold Real Cup review series today by checking out the 2nd flavor in their line-up... Brown Gold 100% Peruvian Real Cups.

Brewing these Real Cups resulted in mild smoky notes appearing with subtle notes of chocolate throughout with some faint earthiness in the background. Billed as a medium roast, flavor seemed on the sour side as the first thing you notice is a strong sour bite which seems to linger for a bit, but it eventually gives way to more smoky & chocolaty notes buried underneath.

Review: Brown Gold 100% Costa Rican Real Cups

Review Single Serve CoffeeReviewbrowngold100costaricanrealcupsIMGP5425

We couldn't find much info on Brown Gold's website to describe the company's history or beginnings, but the site does go on to mention that the goal of their Single Origin coffees is to allow tasters to experience the pure, untouched and unmodified flavor of the namesake region's coffee beans so that you get an idea of what that particular country/region has to offer since you're getting only coffee from that specific region... it's not blended with anything else. Today we check out the first flavor in Brown Gold's Real Cup line-up... Brown Gold 100% Costa Rican Real Cups.

Brewing these Real Cups resulted in light smoky notes blending with some very mild hints of cocoa & molasses buried underneath. Billed as a medium roast, flavor seemed more like a light roast as it was very mild & light tasting. We detected some light sour citrusy notes of oranges paired with some slight smoky flavors which had chocolate & molasses in the background. Acidity was more on the lighter side of things and was mostly noticed shortly after each sip then quickly dissipated to reveal the main flavors.
