At first, people thought Green Mountain was crazy, blueberry coffee. Then they tasted it and soon the coffee department was abuzz with word that they had hit on the next big thing. For some, it’s the aroma, juicy, sweet and oh-so-slightly buttery. For others, it’s the flavor of sun-kissed wild blueberries with just a hint of caramel sweetness. The Keurig single-cup brewing system uses a special packaging for coffee, tea and hot cocoa called K-Cup portion packs or “K-Cups”. Each K-Cup is an airtight, mini-brewer that locks out oxygen, light, moisture and humidity while locking in freshness and flavor. Simply insert the no mess K-Cup into the brewer and hit the brew button for a fresh-brewed, perfect cup of coffee or tea in under a minute. 16 servings
- Fair trade certified limited edition seasonal flavor
- No mess design protects from air, light and moisture
- Each K-Cup brews perfect individual servings
My boyfriend really wanted to try this blend as he has always enjoyed blueberry flavored coffees in the past. We picked up one of the sample packs of this blend from keurig’s website to give it a try. I was skeptical about how a berry flavored coffee would translate when being brewed in the Keurig. Fortunately, though, the end result is very good, although not at all like either of us expected.
From the moment this coffee begins brewing, the blueberry scent is unmistakeable. Very nice, but that had me worried that this coffee would have some sort of artificial sweetness to it. Thankfully, however, that isn’t the case. While the scent may overpower you with the fragrance of fresh blueberries, the taste is a whole different thing altogether. The taste of this coffee is incredibly woodsy with a bit of a hint of cinnamon (very subtle in the latter). It’s quite pleasing although totally unexpected.
All in all my boyfriend even prefers this to the coffee shop blends, which speaks volumes in my book. I think it’s great and I’m sure we’ll restock it when our current supply of pods runs out.
Green Mountain Wild Blueberry K-cups only come out once a year. This is a shame because they are my favorite!!! Blueberry coffee may sound odd, but the flavor is outstanding!! If you’re a fan of flavored coffee you should defiantly try them when they are available. You won’t be disappointed!
If you like Blueberry Eggo Waffles, and you like flavored coffee, you will like this. The flavor is especially awesome with blueberry or vanilla creamer.
