CoffeeCow Reviews Green Mountain Fair Trade Pumpkin Spice Coffee K-Cups

Pumpkin Spice K-Cups_CoffeeCow
Ready or not, here comes Fall…

It’s that time of year again – sweaters are back in the stores and in your drawers (depending on where you live), the kiddos are somewhat reluctantly making their way back to school, and just about everything is made of pumpkin… coffee being no exception! So as another Fall season begins to creep in, we wanted to take a moment to celebrate the turn of the season with the perfect coffee flavor. Today, we’re taste-testing Green Mountain Fair Trade Pumpkin Spice K-Cups to see if this coffee compliments the season or gives us “seasonal depression.”

General Information: Every box of Green Mountain Fair Trade Pumpkin Spice Coffee contains 24 K-Cups per box and works in K-Cup brewers only.

The Test: We’re going to make it feel like Fall and turn the A/C up as high as it will possibly go - 60 degrees sounds pretty good. Now, throw on your favorite sweater and let’s move on to the coffee tastin’!

Once brewing, a mouthwatering pumpkin aroma fills the air. The smooth taste, exceptional flavor and attractive mouthfeel leave you savoring every sip, right down to the last drop. The only con we see – if you like dark-roasted coffee, Green Mountain’s Pumpkin Spice K-Cups may be too light for your taste.

Want to decorate without scooping pumpkin guts? We gathered goo- and mess-free ideas so you can go all out this Halloween.: The Result: On a scale from 1-5, we rate Green Mountain Fair Trade Pumpkin Spice K-Cups a 5.1! Not only are they tasty but these K-Cups contain Fair Trade coffee and are an amazing treat anyhow, anytime, anywhere. So whether you’re admiring the changing colors of the season, venturing out to a nearby Fall festival or gazing up at the harvest moon – just remember to take a Coffee Cow tumbler filled with Green Mountain’s Pumpkin Spice Coffee along for the ride. We’re pretty sure you won’t regret it.
