CoffeeCow Reviews Newman’s Own Decaf Special Blend K-Cups

Newman’s Special Decaf Coffee, K-Cup, Keurig | Newman’s Own® Organics
I bought a decaffeinated coffee table…you can't even see a difference.  
~Author Unknown 

Many people poke fun at the idea of drinking decaffeinated coffee, but there is a reason it exists. For instance, if you need to stay away from caffeine but simply cannot do without coffee in your life, decaf coffee can be your best friend. And with a great-tasting popular brand like Newman’s Own, you may just forget you’re drinking decaf entirely.

Today, we’re taste-testing Newman’s Own Decaf Special Blend K-Cups to see if decaf coffee is really a joke or so good it’s NOT a laughing matter.

General Information: A fair trade certified and organic decaf medium-roasted coffee, Newman’s Own Decaf Special Blend K-Cups come in 24 single serve cups per box for your Keurig brewer.

The Test: It’s late in the day and we’ve got a hankering for coffee but don’t want to be up half the night. Perfect timing to try Newman’s Own Decaf Special Blend coffee! We pop a K-Cup in our Keurig and begin to take it all in – the sights, the smells…well, the smells, anyway. This coffee has a pleasing aroma and a smooth taste upon the first sip. The only con we see is a somewhat thin mouthfeel.

The Result: On a scale from 1-5, we rate Newman’s Own Decaf Special Blend K-Cups a 5! It’s an exceptional cup of coffee, even though it’s decaf.

What Do Webcams & Coffee Have in Common?

"Trojan Room Coffee Pot."
And it’s not a trick question! Webcams and coffee have plenty in common when you’re talking about the Trojan Room Coffee Pot. Get ready for a “Did you know?” question…

Did you know that the world’s first webcam was inspired by the Trojan Room Coffee Pot? It’s true! A live camera was installed in 1991 at the University of Cambridge, just outside of a room called the “Trojan Room.” The camera’s sole purpose was to broadcast the status of the coffee pot to people working all over the university. One could view the coffee pot from their computer and avoid wasting time on a trip if there was no coffee. Call it lazy, call it genius – whatever you call it, it’s just another coffee-inspired part of history.

was shut off in 2001.

In 2001, the webcam was officially turned off, never to broadcast the status of the coffee pot again.

Those who still use the traditional drip coffee brewing system and run into the occasional empty coffee pot – we feel for you. Perhaps you can setup a webcam for your home or office…or maybe it’s time to make the switch to a single cup brewing system.

There’s a reason we consider ourselves to be your single serve coffee source - shop at and choose from a variety of single serve coffee!

CoffeeCow Reviews Folgers Classic Roast K-Cups

"The best part of wakin’ up is Folgers in your cup!"
~Folgers slogan and jingle

Founded in 1850, Folgers Coffee has definitely stood the test of time. When Leslie Pearl composed the Folgers jingle and it debuted in 1984, without a doubt people everywhere were waking up with that little ditty stuck in their heads. In 2013, Folgers is still going strong and adapting to the single cup coffee demands with Folgers coffee K-Cups.

Today, we’re going to taste-test Folgers Classic Roast K-Cups and see if it still has the ability to get us jumping out of bed singing.

General Information: Each box of Folgers Classic Roast K-Cups contains 12 single serve cups for your Keurig brewer. These K-Cups feature a classic, medium-roasted coffee with simple yet gourmet aromas and tastes.

The Test: The real test is to see how this coffee stands up to the dreaded morning – duh duh DUH!

When the alarm goes off at the crack of dawn, it’s time to jump out of bed and start singing! Ok, that may not be the case, but it IS time for that first cup of coffee before the reality of the day kicks us into gear – and that first cup tastes so good.

We head to the kitchen, pop a K-Cup in the Keurig, grab a mug and put it in place, then press a button. The aroma of Folgers Classic Roast coffee is a bouquet of freshness and familiarity, like having upscale gourmet coffee with an old friend. The taste and aftertaste are clean, no unusual or pungent flavors. The only con - this coffee may not be for you if you like strong coffee.

The Result: On a scale from 1-5, we rate Folgers Classic Roast K-Cups a 3.5! With a taste, you can count on and a brand you can trust, we see Folgers sticking around for many years to come.
