Review: Fair Trade The Perfect Peach K-Cups for Keurig

IMG_8315.jpg

There's something truly amazing about a coffee that has a peachy flavor, and a warm coffee finish. Sure we were skeptical at first when we thought about drinking the Fair Trade The Perfect Peach K-Cups coffee from Green Mountain, but after our second and third cup the skepticism turned into delight. This is a very interesting, and complex flavored coffee, and refreshing in both hot and iced coffee formats.

Mr. Coffee and Keurig Create New Line of K-Cup Single-Cup Coffeemakers

mrcoffeekeurig.jpg

No you are not seeing double, both Cuisinart and Mr. Coffee are going to be making their version of the Keurig single-cup and one cup coffee makers. Jarden Consumer Solutions, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Jarden Corporation (NYSE: JAH), and Keurig, Incorporated, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Inc. (NASDAQ: GMCR), announced a new agreement to jointly develop Mr. Coffee single-cup coffeemakers. These will feature Keurig’s branded, patented single-cup brewing technology for the more than 200 varieties of gourmet coffees, teas and hot cocoa packaged in Keurig’s patented K-Cup® portion packs.

Jarden Consumer Solutions (JCS) intends to commercialize the new coffeemakers in the U.S. and Canada under the Mr. Coffee® brand featuring Keurig®-branded brewing technology to be sold to JCS’s retail customers alongside its other products.

We'll have more details as we find them, but having Keurig, Breville, Cuisinart, and now Mr. Coffee make K-Cup single serve coffee makers is really exciting news, and should lead to lots of new K-Cups as well.

Coffee People K-Cup Extra Bold Donut Shop Coffee for Keurig Brewers

donutshop_coffee.jpg

It's funny how you revisit a coffee and really start to enjoy it all over again, and recently we've been drinking a ton of Coffee People's Donut Shop Coffee. The Coffee People Donut Shop Coffee is more on the medium to mild side (read our full review here), with a hint of extra bold flavor. It's very low in acid, and the raspy throat often accompanied by other Donut Shop Coffees is not present here. There is a nice flavor in the mouth after having a few sips, and the caffeine amount seems spot on.

The Coffee People Donut Shop Extra Bold K-Cups will work in your Keurig Elite B40 Brewer, Keurig B50, Keurig Special Edition Ultra Elite B60, Keurig Platinum B70 Brewer, Breville BKC600XL Gourmet Single Cup Brewer, and other Keurig K Cup brewers including the Keurig Mini B30.

Keurig Mini B30 Now Priced at $89.99

08-keurig-b30-red-alt1.jpg

The Keurig Mini B30 has increased in price from $79.95 to $89.95. We're not sure why Keurig has raised the price on the Keurig Mini B30, but it may be due to the popularity and ever increasing prices in manufacturing we've been seeing here at Single Serve Coffee, and our sister site Single Serve Espresso. We still think the Keurig Mini B30 is the perfect little Keurig for your home or office, but at only $10 more - it's hard to pass up on the Keurig B40 single serve brewer as an option now.

Making Iced Coffee and Tea with the Keurig Platinum B70

IMGP3263.jpg

Whether it's gathering round the patio after a hearty BBQ or heading out for a drive on a lazy Summer week-end, those of you who purchased the new Keurig Platinum B70 this past year can cool off by taking advantage of a neat little feature which has yet to appear on other Keurig models: you can now make iced coffees/teas which you can customize to your own flavor preferences.

Why pay upwards of $2.50 for an iced coffee or iced tea at a coffee shop or fast food restaurant when you can make your own at home? Over the past few weeks, we've been testing various K-Cups to see which ones were best suited to be "iced" vs. prepared in their usual manner. Let's take a quick look at some of our favorite varieties along with flavoring suggestions for each.

IMGP3267.jpg

It should be noted that we used unflavored 10% blend cream and all-natural Stevia sugar substitute to achieve some of the sweeter iced latte drinks. We realize most of our readers may not have easy access to specialty coffee flavoring syrups, so we decided not to use any during our testing. Feel free to use half & half or 1% skim milk and whatever sweeteners/flavorings you prefer.
