We received two boxes of the Diedrich Coffee French Roast K-Cups this holiday season and we like them. Though we've been very loyal to our Tully's French Roast K-Cups, the Diedrich Coffee French Roast K-Cups are really good as well. Expect not as bold a flavor as a Tully's, but the flavor is very rich for a morning cup of coffee.
Packed 18 to a box and available from Amazon.com at $9.99, these K-Cups will work in your Keurig Elite B40 Brewer, Keurig B50, Keurig Special Edition Ultra Elite B60, and the Keurig B70 Brewer.

If you like Sesame Street, NOVA, Frontline, and other amazing shows on PBS then you know the quality that PBS has in programming. We imagine the PBS Blend K Cups will also have the same quality in "coffee programming".
The PBS Blend is grown in the lush, tropical rainforests surrounding the El Triunfo Biosphere in Mexico. The PBS Blend is sweetly balanced and smooth, with full flavor and a rich finish. With this Fair Trade Certified™ organic coffee, PBS invites "viewers like you" to enjoy great taste while preserving both natural habitat and one of America's greatest national treasures.
PBS Blend K Cups will work in the Keurig Elite B40 Brewer, Keurig B50, Keurig Special Edition Ultra Elite B60, and the Keurig B70 Brewer.

What's not to like about a rich and delicious coffee with hints of caramel, vanilla and custard, and is perfect for warming up these long winter days ahead? That it only comes out in the Winter. If you haven't been to Winter Carnival in Quebec, Canada - then this coffee is the only substitute we can think of. We've been enjoying the Winter Carnival blend over the past few days and the Thanksgiving Holiday, and find it to be a perfect cup of coffee in the morning and in the evening paired with a little desert. We love the sweet notes of the blend, and the hints of vanilla are amazing. These K Cups will work in your Keurig Elite B40 Brewer, Keurig B50, Keurig Special Edition Ultra Elite B60, and the Keurig B70 Brewer.

Readers are always writing in asking the Single Serve Coffee staff how much the different single serve coffee systems cost to own and operate and especially how much each cup of single serve coffee will cost. We think the questions "what's best", or what's "cheapest," or what's "least expensive" all fall under this category of question as well, but starting with what type of coffee you'd like to make and how much it will cost is a good way to find out which single serve coffee maker is the least expensive to own and operate.
Are Senseo Coffee Pods, Tassimo T-Disks, K-Cups or Nespresso Coffee Capsules the best option for you? Which system falls in your price range? Does the single serve coffee maker or system match your coffee drinking habits? These are all good questions that go hand and hand with the price per cup.
The guide below should give you all the detail you need to know on what coffee system may be right for you. Depending on which type of single serve coffee maker you choose, be it coffee pods, k cups, t discs, or nespresso capsules, you'll be choosing the type of coffee you can get per system and also how much per cup your single serve coffee will cost, and how flexible that cost can be, and what types of coffee the single serve coffee maker can prepare.
If you look at the four major type of single serve coffee you can purchase there are essentially 4 main types:
- Coffee Pods - work with a variety of single serve coffee makers including: Senseo, Bunn My Cafe, Melitta One:One, Grindmaster, simplehuman, and Krups Home Cafe. Coffee pod brewers are the "open standard" of single serve coffee makers, with the largest variety of coffees available reaching over 250+ varieties of coffee pods.
- K Cups - work only with Keurig brewers. Models include: Keurig Elite B40 Brewer, Keurig B50, Keurig Special Edition Ultra Elite B60, and the newly released Keurig B70 Brewer. You can expect to get in the 150+ variety range for K Cup types of coffee as well as tea.
- T Discs: works only with the Tassimo line of single serve coffee makers. You can expect to get 30+ different coffees and teas for your Tassimo brewer.
- Nespresso Coffee Capsules: works only with the Nespresso line of single serve coffee makers. On average there are 12 regular varieties and 3-4 unique varieties per year.
Given the run down of each of the different types, how much does each cup of single serve coffee cost per system?

We love our Keurig Special Edition B60 and think the price reduction from $199.95 to $149.95 makes it still a total steal and a hot deal. With the release of the Keurig B70 at $199.99, if you want to get most of the features of the Keurig B70 in a model that's $50 bucks cheaper at $149.99, the Keurig B60 is a great choice.
If you're looking for a good comparison of the B40, B50, and B60 brewers we've got a great article we put together last year. And if you have that extra $50 bucks lying around, you may want to read our review of the Keurig B70 and see what you're missing.

Ok, I know, Blueberry flavored coffee? Yes, this stuff rocks. This past summer, Dunkin' Doughnuts had Blueberry flavored coffee promoted all over the place and a lot of friends of mine raved about it. We had some here last Thanksgiving, but decided what the heck and picked up another box to try out. The blend was a seasonal product that went mainstream due to high demand and is now available year round. The Blueberry flavor is a baked, sweet pastry like blueberry flavor; and as such it deserves milk and sweetener. Done right, this is a delicious way to enjoy an afternoon coffee or a late morning coffee on the weekends. I still like the stronger stuff for the mornings, but I have enjoyed many, many cups of this since buying. If you like flavored coffees, and blueberry, then sit back and enjoy this.

Over in the Single Serve Coffe Forums there's a very cool thread about revisiting the Keurig Resuesable My K Cup. We've been putting our new Keurig B70 through the paces and also have recently been using the My K Cup with it and have to say - it makes a great cup of coffee. The best thing about having the reuseable My K Cup is the fact we get a ton of coffees sent to us in non-single serve coffee form, and we're loathe to brew a pot of coffee, so having the My K Cup around always gives us the chance to sample the different coffees we receive.
The Keurig My K-Cup reuseable coffee filter will work in the Keurig B-40 Elite, Keurig B-60 Special Edition, and Keurig B70 brewers.
