Green Mountain Coffee and Keurig have debuted the Keurig Classic Brewer and 12 count packs of K-Cups at grocery stores nationwide here in the US. The “Keurig Classic” Brewer is only sold at grocery stores. It looks a lot like the original B40, but has 6/8oz brew sizes, improved water injection needle, H2O filter compatible, and some visual differences. The 12-count box of K-Cups®, will be available in ten different varieties of coffee, including Fair Trade Certified™ and organic offerings. The 12-count packaging is specifically designed to fit on supermarket shelves.
All of this is great news for anyone looking to pick up a few K-Cups at their local grocer, and we think this will really help to explode the growth of single serve coffee nationwide.
We just found out about this 30 second commercial from Keurig that you'll be seeing this holiday season on TV. In just 30 seconds the commercial really wraps up the single serve coffee experience. You might also want to share the video with non-single serve coffee drinkers to show them what they're missing.
The season is almost upon us, and if you're looking for a coffee with a breath of fresh air - you're going to love the Gloria Jean's Sleigh Ride K Cup Coffee. Each cup has the taste of white chocolate mint, and the result is a very crisp coffee flavor. Each box of Gloria Jean's Sleigh Ride K Cup Coffee comes has 25 K-Cups.
S.H. continues his quest to find the perfect K Cup. Will he enjoy the pumpkin spice K Cups from Timothy's World Coffee?
With the opening of their first store in 1975, Timothy's World Coffee set out to become one of Canada's premier coffee houses. The company operates over 100 coffee/bakery restaurants across Canada under 3 distinct brands: Timothy's World Coffee, Mmmarvellous Mmmuffins & Michel's Baguette. In addition, the company operates a 35000 sq. ft. coffee roasting facility in the Toronto region and a bakery commissary; these guarantee the superior quality and freshness of all the coffee and bakery products served both in their retail stores and by co-branded partners.
Timothy's source pure origin coffee from countries around the world that grow specialty grade Arabica beans and only the top 5% of any harvest will meet their strict standards for quality. Over the years, the company has developed over 35 blends, various flavored coffees, teas and decaffeinated coffees. To ensure freshness, all coffee beans are brewed or sold in their retail locations within 20 days of roasting. They also service & supply offices, hotels, theatres and hospitals.
With Halloween just around the corner, I decided to review Timothy's Perfectly Pumpkin limited-edition K-Cups. These K-Cups will only be available during the Fall season, so now's the time to grab some if you want to try them out. When brewing, familiar scents of pumpkin pie start to emerge… all-spice, nutmeg & hints of pumpkin are all present. The body is medium with a usual brown/amber color.
The $99 Bosch Tassimo, $99 Keurig B40, and $79.99 Keurig Mini B30.
We decided to do a little pop in at our local Target, and see what's new in the single serve coffee aisle. Target is offering a pretty decent selection of single serve coffee machines and one cup coffee wonders this holiday season. New to Target is both the Bosch Tassimo priced at $99. This model doesn't include the water filter, but it makes the same amazing single serve coffee and other hot beverages.
The Tassimo $99 model seems to be available only at brick and mortar with no
places to purchase this model of the brewer online.
Also new to Target is the Keurig Mini B30. We love this little Keurig, and are really excited it's available nationwide at Target. They also offer the Keurig B40, which is a bit bigger, and more for household use if you're a daily coffee drinker. Target also had a selection Senseo single serve coffee pod brewers, and of course K Cups, T Discs, and Coffee Pods to choose from for all the options above.
You can find a Target in your area by using their store finder, and if you're looking for a review of the $169.99 Tassimo Suprema available online you can read it here.
It's really getting chilly here at the Single Serve Coffee headquarters, and we just received another set of the seasonal K Cups from Green Mountain. Besides the Pumpkin Spice K Cups we covered a few weeks ago, another favorite for the season is Spicy Eggnog. We're drinking a cup right now, and it's perhaps a little to early for eggnog, but it does get us into the Fall holiday mood.
Green Mountain seems to only have these three blends right now, but expect other online etailers to have them soon as well.
Holiday Blend K-Cup - An elegantly balanced blend of light and dark roasted coffees. Deliciously rich ...
We also mentioned Pumpkin Spice K Cups and of course Pumpkin flavored coffee pods. You'll have lots of luck at Coffee Whiz, Coffee Giant, and Amazon for pumpkin flavored coffees.
Do you know of any other holiday flavored K Cups, Coffee Pods, or T Discs? Are there holiday coffee drinks that are your favorites? Let us know by telling us in the comments, and we'll do a round up or reader choices and favorites soon.
It's that time of year again, and the pumpkin madness in the coffee world is upon us. Each year we really do enjoy the two seasonal coffees from Green Mountain - Autumn Harvest K Cups and the Pumpkin Spice K Cups. Both have a ton of flavor, and we find the Autumn Harvest Blend to be a very interesting morning cup of coffee, and the Pumpkin Spice K Cups to be the flavor of choice for later in the day.
Autumn Harvest Blend - Boasting a palette of light and dark roasted coffees nearly as colorful as the Autumn leaves, this special blend offers brisk and smoky flavors perfectly attuned to the season.
Pumpkin Spice - A delicious coffee enhanced by the creamy pumpkin spice flavors of autumn.
Dan C. has written in to tell us Van Houtte is now shipping Apple Crumble K Cups. We're not sure what to think, but you can expect this blend to be medium/light, and to have a Fall classic flavour: baked apple with a touch of cinnamon and the sweetness of crumble topping.
If you're a Costco member you may be interested in the amazing deal that is the Keurig B66 Single Serve Gourmet Coffee and Tea Brewing System. Priced at $139.99, the Keurig B66 is essentially an enhanced Keurig Special Edition Ultra Elite B60. The aesthetics have changed a bit with a chrome top and handle, and you'll also get a bundle that includes 72 K Cups and the My K Cup Reusable filter.
