CoffeeCow Reviews Newman’s Own Special Blend Organic Coffee K-Cups

From pretzels, to chocolate bars, to pet food to coffee; Newman’s Own Organics delivers top quality organic products that you can feel good about buying.

Newman’s partnered with Green Mountain Coffee to develop Newman’s Own Special Blend Medium Roast Extra Bold Coffee; a strong, yet smooth blend that has been grown and processed according the strictest organic standards. The result is K-cup coffee that is Fair Trade Certified and pleasing to your palate.

At CoffeeCow, we’re all about saving the planet and contributing to the greater good, but we also demand a great cup of coffee to start the day. We brewed some on a manic Monday morning and our verdict is below.

The Test: We’re a bit moody in the morning. Some of us want a dark roast coffee to awaken or senses and get us moving while some of us need a bold yet mild coffee, and some of us want a bit of both! Our coffee dream is to find one coffee blend to hit all of our moving targets.

We popped a K-cup into our Keurig coffee maker and immediately the aroma made our taste buds perk up in anticipation of the promise of a cup of coffee infused with favorite flavors of vanilla, chocolate and caramel.

The cup couldn’t brew fast enough, but it was worth the wait! At first sip, we were immersed in a study of flavor contradiction: bold yet refined, strong yet smooth, hearty and full-bodied, but no bitterness. We’re in love!

We can drink this blend black or with a favorite flavored creamer. We can save time and money stocking up because no matter whom we’re entertaining at home or the office, Newman’s Special Blend coffee is sure to satisfy.

Best of all, there’s no bitter aftertaste so you won’t have to rush to brush your teeth to combat coffee breath.

The Result: On a scale of 1-5, we give Newman’s Own Special Blend Medium Roast Extra Bold Coffee a 4.5. This coffee woke us up with its tiny bite and amazing deep flavor. This blend is a large crowd pleaser! Light roast coffee fans may not appreciate the smoky, almost dark chocolate overtones while dark roast coffee fans may not appreciate the splash of dried-fruit sweetness.

General Information: Each box of Newman’s Own Special Blend Extra Bold Coffee K-Cups contains 24 single-serve cups for your Keurig K-Cup brewer.

CoffeeCow Reviews Green Mountain Dark Magic K-Cups

Strong coffee lovers have been flocking to Green Mountain Organic Sumatran Reserve, but for those that want an event stronger, bolder, espresso-like dark roast blend, we’re pulling a rabbit out of the hat with Green Mountain Dark Magic Extra Bold K-cup. The truth is in the brew, so we rounded up our dark roast coffee enthusiasts around the CoffeeCow office to give their verdict on this très intense dark roast coffee blend.

The Test: We popped a K-cup into our Keurig coffee maker and immediately noticed its pleasing aroma with an espresso vibe. At first sip, we realized that Green Mountain’s Dark Magic coffee was the real deal. The flavor has a spellbinding complexity with a strong yet smooth taste combined with an almost ethereal sweetness. The K-cup was strong enough to deliver its bold, dark roast flavor on the largest cup setting on our Keurig Brewer. During a second round, we added a bit of flavored creamer and noted that this exceptional dark roast can easily be morphed into a latte experience. It’s obvious that this K-cup will also keep its flavor and strength as an iced coffee.

The Result: On a scale of 1-5, we give Green Mountain Dark Magic K-cup a 4.9. For serious coffee drinkers, this is a must-have first cup of coffee in the morning. We imagine this coffee will hit the spot during the mid-afternoon slump, as well! The body has an attractive feel and no bitter aftertaste. You will not find a blend like this on your average supermarket shelf. This coffee is for real coffee drinkers, but adventurous light and medium roast drinkers could learn to love its robust flavor.

General Information: Each box Green Mountain Dark Magic Extra Bold Coffee K-Cups contains 24 single-serve cups for your Keurig K-Cup brewer.

CoffeeCow Reviews Green Mountain Donut House Cinnamon Roll K-Cups

Green Mountain Donut House Cinnamon Roll K-Cups
If you love the fall weather and all the smells and flavors that come with it, then there’s a pretty good chance you also love cinnamon. From food to pine cones, and of course coffee – a little cinnamon sprinkled on top is the perfect complement to the season.

General Information: Each box of Green Mountain Donut House Cinnamon Roll K-Cups contains 24 single serve cups for use in your K-Cup brewer.

The Test: Alright, time to stock up on everything cinnamon to get in the mood. We light our cinnamon candle, take our cinnamon K-Cup and pop it into our cinnamon coffee brewer – our Keurig, of course.

Once the brewing commences, even more of that glorious, spicy cinnamon aroma that we love fills the room. Upon first sip we notice a smooth taste and attractive mouthfeel. Green Mountain Donut House Cinnamon Roll K-Cups are not bitter with an exceptional and noticeable cinnamon flavor.

It’s a Nice Day for Coffee and a Bike Ride

Seasonal Coffee Flavors_CoffeeCow
You wake up early on a cool autumn morning and can’t wait to start your day. That’s because this day is a special one - there’s no work, no chores, and no errands.  Just you enjoying some much needed alone time.

After dressing, you open the front door and take a deep breath of the crisp morning air. That’s when you decide that it’s the perfect morning for a bike ride to the neighborhood corner café for the day’s first cup of coffee. Excited about the bike ride (and for the coffee, of course!), you strap on your helmet and you’re on your way.
Coffee and Bike Rides_CoffeeCow

Nodding to passersby, you turn the corner and coast to a stop. After locking up your bike, you stroll inside and purchase your favorite café-style cup o’ Joe, then find a nice, quiet spot next to the window to sit, sip and relax.

As you sip, you think to yourself “coffee and bike rides – the perfect pair.”

If you agree, you’re not the only one! Cafés in Brno, the second largest city in the Czech Republic, lend free fold-up bikes to people who buy a coffee as part of a bike-share scheme – and it’s working. Not only is taking a scenic bike ride through the city enjoyable, but it’s also a mode of transportation that can keep you and the environment healthy.

Cafe-style Coffee_CoffeeCow
Would you rather have your first cup of coffee before your bike ride? This is ok too! Just browse CoffeeCow.com for all your coffee needs.

CoffeeCow Reviews Green Mountain Caramel Vanilla Cream Coffee K-Cups

Green Mountain Caramel Vanilla Cream Coffee K-Cups
Green Mountain has gone and done it again – they have created another coffee flavor fit to be a stand-alone dessert…or have they? Our coffee connoisseurs are ready and willing to find out!

Today, we’re taste-testing Green Mountain Caramel Vanilla Cream Coffee K-Cups to see if there’s really anything at all to fuss about.

General Information: Each box of Green Mountain Caramel Vanilla Cream Coffee K-Cups contains 24 single serve cups for your K-Cup brewer.

The Test: We don’t need much preparation for this taste-test; we just need to be in the mood for dessert. Done – now that didn’t take long!

As the K-Cup begins to brew, we immediately notice the mouth-watering aromas of caramel and vanilla – a smell so divine we’re inclined to take a sip before the K-Cup brewer is done performing its magic! We close our eyes to take that first sip and our taste buds go crazy. Although the mouthfeel of this coffee is somewhat thin and watery, the swirling dessert-like flavors are just right.

The Result: On a scale from 1-5, we rate Green Mountain’s Caramel Vanilla Cream Coffee K-Cups a 4. This is a light roast coffee, so it may not be for our dark roast coffee fans.

And finally, to answer the question of whether this coffee could be considered a stand-alone dessert…well so far, we haven’t found a coffee that couldn’t.
