New K-Cups Coming Soon
For K-Cup lovers craving something new, I have some very good news for you. My friends at Green Mountain and Shoffee have some new samples on their way to me, I should have everything by the end of this week, which means you can expect reviews to begin trickling out early next. What makes these new offerings great (at least from my perspective as a reviewer goes), based on the descriptions, I actually want to drink them.
Green Mountain has expanded their Cafe Escape lineup to include a new Mocha offering. Described as “A perfect pairing of chocolate and coffee for a rich and creamy experience.”, as a fan of another coffee house’s mocha, sufficed to say this is one I’ve been looking forward to trying for quite sometime.
Green Mountain has also announced a new Donut House collection. Following in the footsteps of the wildly popular Donut Shop Coffee (Coffee People), and Original Donut Blend (Timothy’s), Green Mountain has upped the ante by releasing not only a “Donut House” coffee, but they’ve also added a Decaf version, and two flavored offerings; Chocolate Glazed Donut, and Cinnamon Roll. If nothing else, it’s going to be interesting.
Canadian coffee company, Timothy’s has just released its Kahlua Original Coffee. Here’s how they describe it:
Explore your curiosity with an extraordinary new coffee experience. Timothys World Coffee, in collaboration with Kahlua, the worlds number one coffee liqueur, presents the new Kahlua Original Coffee Keurig K-Cup. The Kahlua Original Keurig K-Cup offers a distinctive coffee tasting experience that it is sure to stimulate the palate in an unforgettable way. Timothys Kahlua Original is the first ever liqueur branded K-Cup available in the market. It is packed in single serve portion packs, specifically formulated for use in Keurig Single Cup Brewing Systems.
You may recall that I enjoyed Coffee People’s Kafe-Lua (the original Kahlua blend). They’ve discontinued it, so hopefully, the Timothy’s offering will prove to be a worthy replacement.
Timothy’s Kahlua Original is available now from Shoffee.com.
Coffee People has announced their new Treehugger blend. While the name perhaps doesn’t make the blend sound all that tasty, the description I have (“A chocolaty medium roast with sweet berry notes”) sounds absolutely delicious.
Coffee People has also announced the return of the seasonal Santa’s Buzz. Look for both at Shoffee.com.
Finally, Gloria Jean’s has announced the arrival of their Holiday Traditions blend (as the name suggests, another winter/holiday seasonal). It’s described as “a flavorful coffee with undertones of milk chocolate fudge and caramel”. If you’ve follwed my reviews at all, you might have noticed that I’ve been particularly hard on Gloria Jean’s in the past (see my mudslide review), but that doesn’t mean I don’t have high hopes for Holiday Traditions. Coffee, Chocolate, and Caramel are 3 of my favorite things, so I don’t see how this can miss (of course I’ve been wrong before).
Look for K-Cup Challenge reviews of all of these new blends coming in the next few week.
