My Favorite Keurig K-Cup Coffee

Updated on April 26, 2015

Too Many Keurig K-Cup Coffee Choices!

With over 250 Keurig K-cup coffee choices, how do you decide which ones to try or buy? Here is a list of Keurig K-cups that I've tried and will recommend to you! This is a short review of each. A lot of the flavored K-cups do not even taste like they are flavored. To me they are gimmicky. The ones that I recommend truly taste like they are flavored. I seriously have tried nearly all of the k-cup options, but there are probably a few that I haven't yet tasted.

If you are new to Keurig, my advice is to purchase a sampler box of coffee which has an assortment of flavors. See which ones you really enjoy and then purchase more of those. I've never had a bad experience with a K-cup, but I've enjoyed some a lot more than others. Your tastes will be different than mine so you really have to try them for yourself to find out if you like them. Here are a few of my K-cup suggestions and why I liked them:

Keurig K-Cup Coffee Maker - Platinum

The Original Donut Shop Coffee

Everyone should try the Original Donut Shop coffee at least once; I promise you'll be hooked. This is one of the most popular K-cups that Keurig sells. The coffee has a medium body roast with a hint of chocolate underneath. This is a great daily go-to coffee! Don't confuse the Original Donut Shop coffee with the doughnut-flavored Donut House K-cups. It isn't a flavored coffee. If you prefer a richer roast, try the Barista Prima options.

You can purchase an 18 count box from Walmart for just $9.98: CLICK HERE.

Barista Prima Coffeehouse - Columbia K-Cup

The Barista Prima Coffeehouse options are one of the boldest K-cups that I've tried, although they are only medium-dark roast. Craving dark roast coffee? These are wonderful for those who enjoy a deep flavor profile. The flavors available are French, Italian, Decaf Italian, Columbia, and House. This may also be the perfect dessert coffee to finish your meal with a sweet, full bodied finish. Enjoy bright, bold fruit notes and and a distinctive hint of walnut.

Wild Mountain Blueberry K-Cup

The light roast Wild Mountain Blueberry reminds me of a warm buttery blueberry muffin. The coffee is perfumed with dried blueberries and spices. After taking a sip, you may be taken to a summertime picnic with warm flaky pies. When you add a little milk and sugar to your cup this coffee is absolutely addicting. Made with 100% Arabica coffee. This blend used to be only available during winter but due to its popularity you can now buy it all year around.

Folgers Vanilla Biscotti K-Cup

Folgers has done an excellent job of making very flavorful K-cups. I was surprised when I tried this Vanilla Biscotti flavor, which is my favorite so far. I've purchased this flavor over and over because I love it so much. It's good anytime; morning, noon, or night! I've also tried their Mocha Swirl and Caramel Drizzle. Both of those flavors were delicious! You can't really go wrong with Folgers flavors.

Van Houtte Raspberry Chocolate Truffle K-Cup

Out of all the chocolate flavored K-Cups that I've tried, the Van Houtte Raspberry Chocolate Truffle is the best! This rich coffee is enhanced with chocolate and juicy raspberry flavors. When you brew this coffee it fills your house with a sensual raspberry chocolate aroma and you just can't wait to taste it! You really can taste the chocolate and raspberry flavors! This is a good morning coffee with the right amount of flavors; but it's also a great treat anytime of the day!

Hot Chocolate can Clog your Keurig

One Point about Hot Chocolate

Be careful about putting the hot chocolate, chai tea, apple ciders, or any other instant K-Cups into your Keurig. These K-Cups are filled with powder that mixes with the water and can clog your Keurig. There should be some warning on the boxes or provided by Keurig because no one tells you this when you purchase them.

I do not use these products in my Keurig because my first coffee maker was ruined because of these instant K-Cups clogging my machine. Therefore, I had to purchase a new one. The sales associate who helped me suggested that may have been the problem and it totally made sense, so I stopped buying them altogether.

Honestly, I don't understand why people buy the hot chocolate K-Cups. The box of Nestle, Hershey's, or Swiss Miss packets are cheaper and taste better mixed with warm milk instead of water. - Note: If your brewer ever becomes clogged, the following video may help you to clean the machine.

Where to Buy Keurig K-Cups

My favorite place to purchase Keurig K-Cups is Wal-Mart. Their prices are really competitive! To view Wal-Mart's selection of Keurig K-Cups, click the link below:

      Bravewarrior and CaterineGiordano, both of your coffee recipes sound so yummy. I love the taste of cinnamon and coffee so I'll have to try this some time. Aldi has a really good price for cinnamon sticks. I think they are just a dollar for a small bag which might contain three or four.

      You both have a wonderful day & thank you for stopping by & commenting on my hub. Sincerely, Mel

      I just sprinkle cinnamon and stevia into the cup, and then brew the K-Cup.

      Melinda, I add a half a package of Stevia and some half and half to my (cup of) coffee. The cinnamon stick in the pot adds flavor. I tried adding cinnamon powder to the coffee grounds themselves and it just makes a powdery mess all over the filter. The cinnamon stick can be used more than once. I usually put it back in the pot until it's completely opened up. Then I chop it up and add it to my compost pile.

      Bravewarrior and Catherine Giordano, thank you both for stopping by & commenting on my hub today. The cinnamon idea sounds delicious! I will have to try that because most of the time we only use milk in our coffee. Hope you both have a wonderful day hubbing. ;-) Sincerely, Mel

      What a wonderful idea --a place to get info about K-Cup varieties. It can be overwhelming. Thanks for the suggestions.

      The mountain blueberry sounds delicious! I put a stick of cinnamon in the pot when I brew coffee (12-cup pot). It adds a nice flavor without having to add sugared down creamers.
