- Pack of two, 24 count each (total of 48 counts)
- Full-bodied blend of medium and dark roasts
- USDA and fair trade certified
NOT A GOOD BUY !!!
These prices stink.
Weak coffee with an ok taste
Excellent, but rare
So, if you can get your hands on these, and you have a K-Cup brewer at home or at work, I seriously recommend that you try these out. They’re a dark roast, which is my only problem with them (darker roasts have less caffeine because it breaks down under the heat of roasting). The fact that they’re organic AND fair trade is a huge bonus as well. I’m glad that I don’t have to wonder what chemicals are put on the beans and that I know that the farmers were paid fairly for their goods. Sustainability means a lot to me, in the environmental AND human sense.
The flavor is heavy and rich but smoother than you would expect. There’s just a hint of acid bite in the after-taste that I associate with all of the K-Cup coffees. I drink it black, but it’s certainly full-bodied enough to handle even heavy cream. If you take sugar, it will probably bring out the woody flavor that this coffee has. It might even hold up to honey or fructose for the diabetics in the crowd.
Fair Trade Coffee A Trade-Off
It’s not as good as the Green Mountain National Wildlife Blend K-Cups, which I have also reviewed. But it’s good and I’d buy it again. Hope this helps those of you who don’t believe a pod coffee can measure up.
When they say extra bold they aren’t kidding!
So/so effort from the Newman’s Own brand…
I can’t recommend it, but if you like bold, strong blends, it might be more to your liking.
Newman’s Organic K-cup decaf
Very good, smooth, flavorful
Best K-Cup yet
best of the k-cups
My favorite coffee
Best of the K-cups
This is a favorite
When I saw it available as a K-cup I bought it right away.
The rich flavor and great aroma has become a favorite.
It isn’s always available but I get it whenever it is
Not Decaf – comes up in decaf kcup search
Paul’s lighting rod
Not As Bold As I Prefer
filled with Cafe Oquendo,
and there was no comparison. The Solofill and Oquendo was far superior in flavor and strength. Needless to say, using the Solofill and Oquendo is also substantially less expensive.
Good brew, a little strong
As for Amazon…brilliant, fast service. It’s more convenient to buy k-cup coffees online than to find the types and flavors you want in the store. Most stores have limited k-cup offerings.
The perfect k-cup for those who are a fan of the basic house blend
I’m still drinking this same k-cup on a daily basis. It is still my favorite
I got to say that I was initially not a huge fan of the idea of k-cups. I didn’t like the “pod” coffee and I thought it would just be a passing phase. When I saw Keurig machines and K-Cups, I immediately snubbed them and marked them off as silly waste of counter space and could not hold a torch to the tried and true drip coffee maker.
I could go on for quite some time about why I purchased a Keurig, but you aren’t here reading these reviews because you want to know if you want one, you already got one and you are now searching for a strong-solid cup of day to day coffee. No “french vanilla” or “tiger mint” or whatever, you just want a cup of black stuff that would make the Marlboro man crack a smile and say “Damn, that’s a fine cup of joe you brewed Mr.”
I brew this on a small cup setting (standard cup size), no creme or sugar, and usually have 1 a day on my way to work and 2 on the weekends. I don’t know how well it tastes with sugar/creme but it tastes fantastic without. If you aren’t sure what to expect, think of what a house-blend would taste like if McDonald’s coffee and Starbucks coffee beans were mixed together. There is no aftertaste but it still has a thick bite to it. Hard to explain.
This can be found for a relatively good price, I buy them at roughly .41cents a cup which is fine with me, only spending $200 on coffee a year is a great habit in my opinion. I was paying more each year on beans by the bag. I could have spread the beans out more but I never had good luck with brewing small cups on a drip coffeemaker.
.41 cents vs. going to a coffeshop and spending well over twice that = win, plus it tastes great =D
Definitely add this k-cup to your collection if you are a fan of house blends
