HAPPY TO FIND LIGHT ROAST COFFEE

I LOVE THIS LIGHT ROAST COFFEE. IT IS VERY FLAVORFUL AND DOES NOT LEAVE A BITTER AFTERTASTE. I USE 1 KCUP AT 8 OZ. WATER WITH A SECOND K CUP AT 6 OZ. FOR A LARGE MUG IN THE MORNING. BY AFTERNOON I JUST USE 1 K CUP AT 8 OZ OF WATER FOR MY AFTERNOON COFFEE BREAK. IT IS SO HARD TO FIND LIGHT ROAST COFFEE. THE MEDIUM AND DARK ROAST COFFEES LEAVE A BITTER AFTERTASTE.

Shipping not as promised

The Caribou Coffee is of course equal and the same as any I could buy in a store or at any other on-line vendor. The time it took to get to me was unacceptable though. I will not be ordering my coffee from this vendor again. I opted to pay for speedier shipping although I was eligible for the free Super Saver on this item, because I knew I would soon be running out of coffee at home. I then received a notice of a shipping date that was almost 2 weeks from order date! I had to then take my time and get stressed arguing with them about the fact that I’d paid extra for expidited shipping. I did get my shipping fees refunded, but not my coffee sooner. So I had to then go out to a store to purchase coffee to use until the order from Amazon finally arrived, which is what I was trying to avoid in the first place by placing the order on line. Not a happy camper on this one!

Nice Breakfast blend with perky aroma

Aroma-4
Great nutty smell that will be pleasing in the morning.

Sweetness-3
There is defiantly a sweetness to the coffee that lasts the entire cup.

Acidity-4
This is a light roast with near medium roast flavor. A nutty taste is the most surprising, pleasantly so, aspect of the flavor as it’s not commonly this strong in a coffee so lightly roasted.

Body-3
Good body for a seemingly very light roast. Not watery but not full out creamy.

Bitterness- 5
This is a very smooth coffee, no overpowering bitterness.

Aftertaste- 4
It leaves an after taste of a darker roast, but not harsh and bitter. It’s a pleasant reminder of the coffee…..until the next cup.

Overall: 89 (out of a possible 100)

Scoring Summary:
(90-99) Very Awesome Coffee
(85-89) Very Good Coffee
(78-84) Just Average Coffee
(50-77) Just Poor Coffee

Great but not worth more than a dollar a cup

Great coffee but not worth more than a dollar a cup.
Be careful Amazon gets what the traffic will support.
Their price fluctuates. Try Bed Bath & Beyond.

Coffee Review

Caribou Daybreak Morning Blend coffee is one of my favorite blends. I don’t like a strong coffee, and this one is a little less than medium strength but has a really smooth rich coffee taste, it’s excellent. If you are a lover of the Starbucks strength coffee, this probably would not be one you would enjoy.

Caribou Coffee, Daybreak Morning Blend

This was my first time using this coffee for my Keurig, and I am very pleased with this blend. It is not bitter/good strength! I would recommend this to friends.
EvaChattahoochee, FL

LOVE this stuff!

I just LOVE this coffee! It’s just so light, not heavy and “burned” like a lot of morning coffees, but it has all the caffeine that you’re accustomed to for morning. I have always loved Caribou’s coffees WAY over Starbuck’s (Starbuck’s is AWESOME for growing roses, however), and this one is just perfect for us. It’s not overdone, just a smooth, rich blend of some of the most awesome beans available. If you put your nose close enough to your Keurig, this one is a delight to smell after you pull down the handle and it pierces the top. Ahhhhh! SO LOVE this stuff, highly highly recommend!

I don’t have to travel to Minnesota

The best coffeehouse in the USA is Caribou Coffee. That’s just an opinion, but an opinion I’d challenge anyone to test. When I go to the Mall of the Americas in Minnesota, the first place I stop is the Caribou Coffee shop. I don’t like Starbucks coffee at all, and usually look for any alternative.
Buying these Caribou coffee pods aren’t up to the in house experience, but still enjoyable (not as good as grinding and brewing your own with their blend either). This coffee pod is filled (possibly overfilled) so it’s not a wimpy coffee at all. If you’re looking for a great strong coffee on the mild side Daybreak may be a good option for you. My best advice is to wait till it’s shipped and sold by Amazon for the best price, but if that isn’t an option, you may want to get your caffeine fix with an alternative seller.

One of my favorites

This is one of my favorite coffees. I used to buy it ground in bags locally but they stopped carrying it. It’s smooth, light and not bitter at all. Beautiful caramel/nutty undertones give it a very nice after taste. I just wish this wasn’t as expensive. I’ve recently been hooked on Tully’s Kona Blend because I can get it locally at reasonable prices.

Good everyday coffee

This is our regular everyday morning coffee. It has a balanced, slightly sweet flavor that (as expected for a light roast) is relatively mild.
CarmenWells, MN

Good coffee, slightly acidic

Caribou’s daybreak morning blend is a good coffee. It is not a dark blend according to the scale on the box but it pretty strong and is sure to satisfy even the most “hardcore” of coffee drinkers. Only downside is that it tastes a little acidic.

Just when I thought it couldn’t get any better than Caribou’s signature blend, along comes Daybreak!

When I picked up a box of Caribou Coffee, Caribou Blend, K-Cup Portion Pack for Keurig K-Cup Brewers, 24-Count, I really thought I’d found the best good-cuppa-coffee to please everyone in our household. Caribou is a coffee company that is very popular in Chicago and are known for producing great quality coffee. With their reputation, I’ve always been eager to try the other blends that are available in k cup form, but they are often hard to come by.

I ordered a 5 k cup sampler size of this blend directly for Keurig because I was so happy with the Caribou Blend that I couldn’t wait to try the company’s other offerings. I’m so thankful I did, because the Daybreak Morning Blend just hit the original blend out the park!

I enjoy a medium roast with a kick. Just because I don’t like a dark, bitter cup of coffee doesn’t mean I want to skimp on flavor or aroma. And Caribou Daybreak really delivers in both of those departments. This tastes like a fresh brewed cup that you’d pick up at a coffee shop. It goes great with a little skim milk, too. A perfect compliment to breakfast with a caffeine kick to get you going in the morning.

The only downside to this blend is that I haven’t been able to find it in store near us. So we have to order it online, which seems a little pricier (surprisingly). Oh well, I still think this blend is completely worth it. It’s my new go-to k cup!

Fantastic Coffee

I’ve had my Keurig brewer for almost 2 years now. I’ve tried tons of k-cups from companies including Green Mountain, Timothy’s, Folgers’s, Coffee People, Gloria Jean’s, etc. This is by far the best coffee I’ve found. I normally brew on the larger cup size (9.25 oz) and it is the ideal cup of coffee. Not too strong, not too weak. The aftertaste is pleasant and not bitter. I would definitely recommend this coffee to anyone and everyone.

A GOOD MORNING COFFEE

A good anytime coffee. More on the lighter roast side,smooth and not bitter. Good flavor,my go to coffee. Best in an eight ounce cup.
AnglaEllamore, WV

Good, but no cigar

Doesn’t measure up to Paul Newman’s arabica med. roast. In comparison (I used to think this was great) until I tried the Paul Newman’s because of a Consumers Report.

THE BEST

MY DAUGHTER AND I HAVE BEEN TESTING SEVERAL BRANDS AND THE CARIBOU COFFEE DAYBREAK MORNING BLEND HAS WON FOR US WHEN WE FIRST WAKE UP. NOT TOO STRONG AND NOT TO WEAK—–JUST RIGHT THANK YOU TO GET US GOING FOR THE DAY. AMAZON HAS HIT THE SPOT AGAIN FOR ORDERING ON LINE BECAUSE THE GROCERY RUNS OUT AND THIS WAY, WE KNOW WE CAN HAVE IT WHEN WE WANT IT. I ALSO ORDER BOOKS AND FOR MY KINDLE ALSO AND HAVE NO TROUBLE RECEIVING WHEN THEY SAY THEY WILL ARRIVE. I USE AMAZON BECAUSE I AM TOTALLY IMPRESSED WITH HOW THEY HANDLE THEIR CUSTOMERS.
KymBainbridge, NY

great morning flavor

not too strong not too weak just right for the morning cup of coffee better than Dunkin Donuts brand and not expensive.
PabloSouth Fork, MO

Really good coffee

I love this coffee, it’s totally delicious at 6am – first sip of the day, first feeling washing over you that it’s time to wake up. It’s smooth, not bitter, and makes me say AHHHH…every single time. Want to be upfront that I’m more a medium, light, and flavored coffee drinker so I’m not sure the dark roast fans will get that same feeling. Packaging was fine, none of the cups were damaged in shipping.

Caribou Coffee

This is a good coffee, but it is a little towards the light side. It was advertised as a medium blend, but unless you pick a smaller size to brew you are going to get a light coffee.
ChanteNewborn, GA

Yummy!

This is one of my favorite coffees. I used to buy it ground in bags locally but they stopped carrying it. It’s smooth, light and not bitter at all.

First cup

I can’t imagine starting my day with out my first cup of Caribou Daybreak Morning Blend Coffee. It has a excellent taste.
ElvisBowmansville, PA

Great coffee

For years, I purchased Green Mountain Coffee through a coffee club. When they raised their prices so much, I came to Amazon to see if they sold coffee. I tried the Caribou coffee and I keep ordering it. Great coffee. Great taste. Great price!
DevinLinesville, PA

coffee K cup

The coffee we ordered was very good, I have used this product for over 5 yeras abd know of its quality.
TeofilaPoncha Springs, CO

My favorite K-Cup coffee

Taste is a personal choice and I prefer light roast coffees. My favorite brand is Peets, but until Peets gets into the K-Cup market this will have to do. This brew is light and not bitter, however I do detect a slight, stale flavor. However this stale flavor is common in nearly all ground coffee, including the tail end of a bag of my beloved Peets coffee. I also taste a sweet note in the coffee that counteracts the typical bitter notes, potentially allowing me to drink a cup without any adjunct sweeteners or milk. This has happened when I run out of milk (cow, soy or almond) and I just don’t feel like using aspartame (Nutrasweet).
NerissaCrestline, CA

McD’s Coffee

If you like McDonald’s coffee you will like this. It tastes identical to McDonald’s coffee. It also cost less to buy it on Amazon. You won’t regret it!

Pros:
– Flavor
– Aroma
– Convenience

Cons:
NONE

Not my favorite

I don’t want to say it’s bad, just not my favorite…my cousin loves it, so I made her a special gift of this.

Coffee review

This coffee is great! It is strong and bold. If you enjoy a stronger and bolder tasting coffee then I recommend this product.
ContessaSanta Fe, TN

My New Favorite

This is the first K-cup I’ve found that has a real coffee-house flavor. It’s not weak tasting like a lot of other brands, but it’s not bitter, either. I’ve been drinking San Francisco Bay pods for a while, and they’re great, but Caribou Coffee Daybreak will probably be a regular addition to my coffee rotation.
SidneyCostigan, ME

Part of our morning (and evening!) routine…

My current preference in coffees is more towards milder brews…especially at the start of a day. Daybreak morning blend gives me what I need in that first morning coffee: a definitive coffee taste, the caffeine kickstart, and the reassuring coffee smell that lets you know another day has started…

It does so without being overpowering or bitter. I also enjoy this in the evening while reading, watching TV or sitting around and talking. You get what you need from a cup, but in moderation.

Highly recommended for your K-Cup rotation of flavors…

SummerBrodhead, KY

Hubby’s new favorite !!!

Hubby loves this K cup flavor! Sometimes difficult to find…or out of stock on some websites, including Keurig but always worth the wait to get it!
