Green Mountain has announced two new special reserve coffees for your Keurig K-Cup Brewer - Jamaica Blue Mountain and Kona blends. Both are here for only a limited time, and both coffees will are available direct from Green Mountain. These coffees are not cheap at $32.99 for a box of 16, but we expect they are well worth it.
- Special Reserve Jamaica Blue Mountain - This complex coffee presents a cup of well-rounded contrasts. You’ll find rich notes of chocolate, cherry, and plum, while hints of melon, lemon, and lime also shine through. The body is heavy with a silky, smooth finish.
- Special Reserve 100% Kona - This cheerfully bright, but delicate coffee expresses dry, Chardonnay-like notes while presenting refreshing hints of tropical fruit, tart green apple, and dried citrus. The aroma is pleasantly floral with an almond sweetness.

We really enjoyed their Dark Roast Real Cups so much so that they earned a perfect score. Will lightning strike twice or will it be a one-time only experience?

We come to the end of our Marley Coffee Real Cup series with what is likely the most anticipated flavor to ever hit the Real Cup format and a flavor which many K-Cup fans thought they’d NEVER see - Marley Coffee Talkin Blues Coffee, 100% Jamaica Blue Mountain, Single Serve RealCup for Keurig K-cup Brewers. People asked, begged and demanded that Keurig & Green Mountain release this flavor but such never came to pass and people were starting to give up hope. Just what was this much sought-after flavor? Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee. Billed as one of the World’s finest coffee varietals it has even been considered to surpass the ever-popular Kona coffee in taste & quality (although we’re sure that could be debatable).

For all of us who are waiting on more coffees, teas, and other drinks for the VUE brewer we think we've found the solution - the Solofill V2 GOLDCUP. This 3-1 refillable filter cup for Keurig VUE brewers allows you to use K-Cups, ground coffee, and coffee pods in your VUE brewer. Now when that new K-Cup flavor comes out you can use it right away in your VUE brewer.
K-Cups are trending to be cheaper than VUE cups, and this can also save you money. Plus if you love a micro-roasted coffee at your local coffee house you can now use it with your VUE brewer by using the refillable filter that comes with the Solofill V2 Goldcup. The Solofill V2 Goldcup is also easy to use and easy to clean if you use ground coffee.

We continue our Marley Coffee Real Cup series today with the strongest roast they current have available by checking out the Marley Coffee Lively Up! Real Cups. After outstandingly stellar performance of the past 2 flavors, we had high hopes for this flavor.

AB has come across Pumpkin Spice Coffee K-Cups at Target. Target AKA Archer Farms has entered into the Pumpkin Spice craze, and we are excited to try it. They are offering an 18 pack box of Pumpkin Spice Coffee for $10.99. This is a holiday blend and not around for the rest of the year so you'd better get it while you can.
Archer Farms in the past made amazing coffee pods for the Senseo brewer and other single serve coffee pod brewers. Earlier this year we ran a post featuring Archer Farms getting into making non-licensed K-Cups for the Keurig K-Cup brewing system.

Red Rose is now offering French Vanilla and Hazelnut Energy Tea K-Cups for Keurig K-Cup Brewers. The energy/good for you hot drink craze continues with these two offerings and we'll see if we can get some to review.

These two premium black teas have an extra boost and are both naturally flavored. We've yet to find out what the energy part of the tea is. Maybe it's just really spunky? :-)

The Cafejo My French-Press with K-Cup Pod and Ground Coffee Adaptors is the the only manual, French-press style, single-cup brewing system that brews cups, pods, caplets, and ground coffee. We've been using the Cafejo My French-Press exclusively over the past 2 weeks, and we're impressed. We've been brewing various cups of coffee using K-Cups, Pod Adaptors, and reusable coffee filters and all the single serve coffee produced has been excellent.

It’s been reported that coffee first got its start in Ethiopia, Africa after farmers noticed their goats behaving strangely after they had eaten coffee berries. Intrigued by this, they soon discovered that the beans inside the cherries could be roasted and mixed with hot water to produce coffee. Once people started cultivating and consuming coffee in the 15th century, it didn’t take long for coffee plants to be exported to different regions by explorers who set out to discover new lands. Most of today’s coffee growing regions owe their start to the birthplace of coffee and it would appear Marley Coffee have decided to use their partnership with other regional coffee farms in Africa to introduce a 100% organic, single-origin Ethiopian Yirgacheffe coffee with what we’re reviewing today… Marley Coffee One Love Real Cups.
