Review: Martinson Donut Shop Blend Real Cups

Review Single Serve CoffeeReviewmartinsondonutshopblendrealcupsIMGP5178

First there were One Cups, the soft-bottomed open filter style K-Cup knock-offs and now the latest trend that seems to be picking-up steam is yet another K-Cup knock-off which goes by the name of Real Cups. What are Real Cups you ask? Simple... they're similar to a One Cup that has the plastic K-Cup shell re-attached to the bottom. If you cut one open, you'll notice it uses the same filter style as a One Cup. As a result, you get a fusion of both a One Cup's soft-bottomed filter and a K-Cup's plastic shell all into one. We actually like this approach since this ensures the coffee won't go stale and can be stored for long periods of time in carousels or storage racks without any worries.

When our friends at ECS Coffee told us they'd be sending us samples of the Martinson Real Cups for review after they toured the manufacturing facilities, we thought ok... we'll just get the single Real Cups in a Ziploc bag when we open the shipping box. Well, color us pleasantly surprised when we got the shipment. Nothing could have prepared us for what we received once we opened everything.

The Marley Coffee Talkin Blues Coffee, 100% Jamaica Blue Mountain, Single Serve RealCup for Keurig K-cup Brewers is made from 100% Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee. If you've never had Jamaican Blue Coffee before - well you've been missing out on some of the smoothest coffee around. Marley coffee only sources small batches of coffee, so expect the best when you have these in your single serve coffee brewer. The Marley Coffee Talkin Blues Coffee Single Serve RealCups will work in any K-Cup Brewer.

President's Choice Medium Roast Decaffeinated Gourmet Coffee Pods

M2250007 2248338

An SSC reader has written in that President's Choice in Canada is offering PC Medium Roast Decaffeinated Gourmet Coffee Pods. It makes our reader believe their K-Cup compatible coffee pods must be doing well to offer a decaf version and we believe he's right. These medium roast coffee pods are compatible with Keurig K-Cup brewers, and are an exclusive blend of some of the world's finest arabica beans, specially selected and roasted to deliver a smooth, mellow coffee with rich, medium-bodied flavour and a complex aroma. The decaf process used is a SWISS Water process, so no harsh chemicals used here.

Review: Swiss Miss Milk Chocolate Hot Cocoa K-Cups

Review Single Serve Coffee12 k cup swiss miss hot cocoa

For about as long as we can recall, Swiss Miss hot cocoas have been a staple in many American homes over the years and up until now, the most common format it came in was powder packets. Known for its smooth Swiss milk chocolate taste (think Milka), this has been one of our favorites for ages. A few months ago, Green Mountain decided they’d take a crack at things and introduced what we’re reviewing today: Swiss Miss Milk Chocolate Hot Cocoa K-Cups.

Brewing these K-Cups resulted in the distinct aroma of Swiss milk chocolate with sweet cocoa notes filling the room. Flavor was a bit more hit or miss though. When we tried our first K-Cup, about half the powder remained stuck in the bottom of the K-Cup after brewing (despite having shaken the K-Cup beforehand) which resulted in a horrible-tasting “hint of cocoa” flavored water. We had to dump the cup since it tasted so watery.

Newman's Own Organics Café Almond Biscotti K-Cups

 

51R5xMBQxcL SX342

We've long been a fan of any of the Newman's Own Organics coffees, and this blend looks like it will make us a fan as well. Newman's Own Organics Café Almond Biscotti K-Cups has the taste of that biscotti you just dipped in your coffee without the biscotti. We're pretty sure these are limited so get them while you can. These K-Cups will work in any Keurig K-Cup brewer.

Second Cup Premium Arabica Real Cup Single Serve Cups

Secondcup arabica

Mother Parkers Coffee sent us these Second Cup Premium Arabica Real Cup Single Serve Cups that will work in your Keurig K-Cup brewer. We aren't sure where you can get these stateside yet, but if you can get them in Canada - pick some up. This medium roast with brilliant chocolate overtones is one of the best morning cups of coffee we've had in a long time. The red in the design on the single cup also gets our mouths watering. The Second Cup Real Cups aren't listed on the Real Cup site yet, but we do know some retailers are carrying them already.
