Favorite Keurig K Cups???

  • 8

We have a machine at work and stock only Green Mountain Coffee's. Some are better than others, I like the Vermont Country blend. But for Christmas, I got a Keurig for my home and am checking out other varieties.

What are your favs?

I'm a big fan of stronger coffees so I've been working the Timothy's Midnight Magic, it's good. But i'm sure there's better out there. Doing a little research, i see that Coffee People Specialize in stonger coffees. How are they?

  1. I like dark roasts/stronger coffees and really like the Green Mountain Sumatran Reserve. Have given up on the other offerings and now only buy this one (only use Keurig at the office, for convenience). Hope you'll like it!

      cannedm, I also like the Vermont, but my two favorites are Nantucket & Lake and Lodge. I do not like strong coffee either so after I make one big cup of coffee I can make a small cup of coffee using the same K-Cup.

        I like Sumatran Reserve and the Kona, but I have to agree that I really don't like Green Mountain's other dark roasts. Most of them are just far too bitter for me.

      2. I have been thinking of buying one of these for awhile. A lot of criticism is that they are noisy. Is it really that bad?

          No, they're not noisy. well, maybe they're a little noisy for 30 seconds while the water heats up but that's about all. I never think of it as noisy and love the convienence of having a hot cup of coffee in 40 seconds.

        2. Coffee people jet fuel and black tiger, my favorites.

            My husband loves the Coffee People Jet Fuel. I like the Caribou Coffee French Roast. I'll have to try the Black Tiger.

          2. After trying a bunch, we settled on Timothy's Kona blend which we get at a very good price by subscribing on Amazon. It's a medium blend but pretty rich too.
