We're going to feature a bunch of the brew over iced K-Cups over the next week, and we kick things off with the Celestial Seasonings Sweet Peach Iced Tea K-Cups and notice a light peach aroma filling our nose as the hot liquid melts over the ice. This aroma quickly becomes muted after the drink cools down a bit.
We didn't really notice much acidity as the ice cuts down on it somewhat. Things were smooth overall and there was barely any aftertaste. The thing which threw us off a bit was the initial punch to the face of bitter flavoring... we couldn't quite figure out what caused it. The peach flavoring? The cane sugar? (unlikely) or perhaps it was the hibiscus? Once we got accustomed, we started noticing more of the natural peach flavoring hiding below the light sweetness of the cane sugar. The longer we sipped on the drink, the more peach notes started coming through. A flavor score of 5 thankfully got changed to an 8 as a result.
Packed in eco-friendly frustration free packaging, the dark roast extra bold Kona blend are even certified Kosher. Made from 100% Arabica coffee and blended with Kona coffee, we really enjoy this Kona blend each time we brew a cup.
The Keurig MINI Plus Personal Brewer is ideal for gourmet coffee, tea and hot cocoa drinkers who want a brewer that is compact and easy-to-use in the home or even home office.

You can read our full review of the Keurig MINI Plus B32 brewer here.
Straight from the Single Serve Coffee Forums (thanks JBViau) we've gotten news of these new K-Cups from Caribou Coffee called Obsidian. Obsidian K-Cups have floral nuances and fruit sweetness that can be obscured in many dark roasts. This coffee is smooth to the finish, and heavy with flavors of juicy, luscious wild berries. It finishes with a decadent, bittersweet chocolate flourish.
Green Mountain Coffee and Celestial Seasonings have added two more brew over ice K-Cups to the line of Iced Tea K-Cups - Sweet Berry Lime Green Iced Tea K-Cups and Sweet Tropical Breeze White Tea K-Cups. You can brew both of these K-Cups using your Keurig brewer direct over ice. With the ability to brew over ice you get icy cold tea in seconds instead of minutes.
Both are perfectly sweetened with all-natural cane sugar and created to satisfy the growing consumer interest in green and white teas. We'll have a full review and sampling of these new iced tea K-Cups soon.
Brew over Iced Coffee K-Cups and Brew Over Iced Tea K-Cups are available for summer, and it looks like we're not the only person crazy about them. In the video Amy's having one of those days. Thankfully, she has her go-to Brew Over Ice iced coffee and iced tea from her Keurig to help cool down her meltdown of a morning, afternoon, and night.

Sometimes we forget to update our numbers, and this year the BKC600XL was replaced with the BKC700XL by Breville. What's the difference and what are all these strange numbers? The Breville Gourmet Single Cup Brewer features a 1500-watt single-cup coffeemaker with quiet pump technology and "showerhead" spray. The quiet part is new and welcome, as the older model was pretty noisy (you can read our full review of the Breville Single Cup brewer here).
The Breville Gourmet Single Cup Brewer also features an LCD control panel; digital clock with auto on/off; 5 brew strengths; variable brew temperature, and a removable 60-ounce water tank with charcoal water filter. And as the name implies, the iced-beverage function can be used for iced tea or coffee. The brewer also includes a sample variety pack of K-Cup coffee pods, a reusable My K-Cup, and a measuring spoon.
Timothy's Sweet Summer Raspberry K-Cup Coffee is a seasonal limited edition K-Cup, so if you even want to try this coffee you'll need to act fast. We've yet to try it, but the raspberry flavors coupled with the exceptional smoothness of Timothys coffees in general, makes us think this might be an amazing iced coffee.
We simply couldn't wait to do a formal larger review of all the Wolfgang Puck K-Cups, so we decided to do a lightning review of one our favorite Wolfgang Puck K-Cups so far - the Wolfgang Puck French Roast K-Cups. This coffee is truly bold and intense as advertised, with a spicy chocolate note to each cup. We've been drinking this over the past week, and we can safely say 1 box is not going to be enough.
