Light Roasts

  • Green Mountain Light Roast

    This roast is mild, savory, smooth, and easy on the acidity. If you prefer something simple and delicious this is a go-to option. Its light blend fuses the right amount of caffeine and zest!

  • Peet’s Light Roast

    If your stomach is sensitive to what it takes in, you can still enjoy a tasty and savory brew with this cup. These beans are roasted in Colombia and are aromatic, refreshing, and light-bodied.

Dark Robust Roasts

  • Community Coffee New Orleans Blend

    Just like the cuisine, music, and accents in New Orleans, this blend is rich and vibrant. You can have these K Cup pods any time of day. The blend isn’t as heavy-bodied as other dark roasts tend to be.

  • Laughing Man Colombia Huila

    Heavy body? Check. Robust flavor? Check. This blend has notes of bergamot and lime and it comes packaged in an environment-friendly, disposable K Cup.

Decaf Blends

  • Green Mountain Coffee Dark Magic Decaf

    This mountain coffee blend comes loaded with hints of dried fruit and chocolate. It leaves a mouth-watering flavor and the caffeine does not overwhelm you.
  • Newman’s Own Organic Special Decaf Blend

    Have you ever tried out coffee with tones of nuts, banana, and chocolate? This blend is all about impeccable flavor and taste. We boldly claim that it is Newman’s most innovative brew to date.

Flavored Blends

  • Green Mountain Southern Pecan Blend

    This blend aims to recreate that southern comfort flavor every time you take a sip. It is a light to medium roast that’s slightly tart, but with a light vibrant flavor. The blend is bold, nutty, and buttery.

FAQs on K Cups

Can You Use Them Twice?

K Cups are made for single serve purposes. If you use the same cup pods twice, you will over-extract the grounds. The main aromas, oils, and flavors won’t be as strong in your second cup. If you make orders on a variety pack you really won’t have to worry about this. 

Do They Expire?

You won’t spot an expiration date on the pods, but you will notice a “best-to-brew-by” date. This means they are able to last longer than packaged grounds. They are able to go stale or weak after a certain amount of time.
