iCoffee Opus Review

As you have probably noticed from my dozens of coffee-maker reviews, coffee brewers are a bit of a habit with me. I’ve tried percolators, drip makers, thermal carafe brew stations, grinder-drip makers, various single-cup Keurig machines, Tassimo single cup brewers, and French Presses.  The latest addition to my coffee maker addiction is a new and improved, off-brand version of the most popular, single-cup, K-Cup brewer, the iCoffee Opus. While there are a few other off-brand, K-Cup brewers, See the Review

Hamilton Beach 12 Cup Brewstation

Hamilton Beach 12 Cup Brewstation

The Hamilton Beach 12 Cup Brewstation makes a very powerful argument against the every day use of single-cup coffee makers like the Keurig.  Not too long ago, I began to feel that the convenience of the single cup Keurig coffee brewer topped my reasons to ever buy another coffee maker.  I even wrote articles about how coffee is enjoyed one cup at a time, not one pot at a time. Why deal with messy coffee See the Review

Coffee Tastes like Plastic

Coffee Tastes like Plastic

If your coffee tastes like plastic there are a couple of good reasons for this: One, your coffee maker is made from plastic. Two, you just bought a brand new coffee maker. It is unfortunate that even most expensive coffee makers are made from plastic. Plastic, particularly when it is new, contains chemicals which become significantly more active when hot water is added. There is nothing worse than tasting plastic in your favorite brand of See the Review

Gevalia K-Cups

Gevalia K-Cups

Gevalia K-Cups are now available in just about every store. Being that I have never been a huge fan of Gevalia coffee in general, I hesitantly picked up a box of 18 at my local Target store for $11.99. I have liked some of the Gevalia Tassimo products which are advertised as being similar to Starbucks (Which they are), so I thought I’d give them a try.

Flor De Apia Coffee

Flor De Apia Coffee

Flor de Apia Coffee comes from Colombia. Have you ever imagined how great the coffee must be in other regions of the world where conditions like climate and altitude are ideal for growing the perfect coffee bean? While American roasters do import green coffee beans from all over the world, how do we know we’re getting the real thing – the way coffee would really taste if we were sitting at a cafe somewhere in See the Review

Caza Trail K-Cups Coffee

Caza Trail K-Cups Coffee

Caza Trail was the result of my latest quest to find a better cup of K-Cup coffee. It is great that the price of K-Cups have come down over the last 5 years, I have become bored with the selection of coffee that’s available. I am not sure if it is the design of the Keurig coffee maker or the actual K-Cups, but I find the taste of the coffee, overall, to be inconsistent. It See the Review

Costco K-Cups

Costco K-Cups

Costco has done it again – they’ve made an expensive habit affordable. Kirkland Pacific Bold comes in a box of 100 K-Cups and sells for just $38.00 at Costco. That’s only 38-cents a cup. When the Keurig brewers first appeared on the market, it was tough to find affordable K-Cups for them. Anything under 75 cents a cup seemed cheap back then. There is the really, really cheap French Roast, San Francisco brand that is See the Review

King of Joe Tassimo Coffee

King of Joe Tassimo Coffee

Tassimo T-Discs are hard to come by these days, so I was surprised to see the newly, available, King of Joe Tassimo Coffee brand at my local Target store. Gevalia, without doubt, is the prominent T-Disc brand being offered these days – and unless you buy the one advertised as, if-you-like-Starbucks-try-this, you’ll be very disappointed with their weak flavors. The one advertised as Starbucks really is very good, but their are only two; Dark House Blend See the Review

Safeway Select K-Cups Coffee Review

Safeway Select K-Cups Coffee Review

We Keurig owners love our coffee, but what we don’t like so much is the high price of k-cups. The huge, 80-Pack box of San Fransisco Bay, French Roast K-Cups at Costco for $26.00 is a great deal, but how many times am I going to want to drink French Roast Coffee? How about some variety, in the cheaper, k-cups brands? Safeway Select to the rescue. For $6.99 per box, Safeway Select offers two, new See the Review

Cheapest K-Cups

Cheapest K-Cups

I’m literally amazed: The cheapest K-Cups also happen to be among the very best! San Fransisco Bay French Roast K-Cups coffee by the Royal Family Coffee company is absolutely delicious. I’m not a huge fan of French Roast coffee, but the San Fransisco Bay K-Cups make a very tasty dark, coffee roast – perfect for after-dinner. Actually, these k-cups are not so dark that I wouldn’t enjoy them at any time of the day. The See the Review

Gevalia Tassimo T Discs

Gevalia Tassimo T Discs

What do you think of Gevalia Tassimo Coffee?  I’ve been an unusually harsh critic of Gevalia Tassimo T Discs and for good reason. Tassimo Gevalia coffee is usually weak, bland and uninspiring. To add insult to injury, Gevalia advertises a large, 12-ounce cup, T-Disc that has less coffee in it than a good Keurig 8 ounce K Cup. You can tell just by looking at Gevalia T-Discs that they are going to be weak before See the Review

Discount K Cups

Discount K Cups

In one word I can explain why so many keurig coffee maker owners are looking for discount k cups and k cup coupons: Guilt. Let’s face it, nobody can drink just one cup of their favorite Keurig brewed coffee. I’m no different than the rest of the Keurig Single Cup coffee brewer owners out there. It is way too easy and convenient to pop in a new k cup every time I desire another freshly See the Review
