Good coffee too. We buy them for work and the preferences there are French Dark roast, Columbian, and Highland Grogg.

Just finishing a cup of Tully's French Roast and I like it. SO made a cup with her own coffee. She said it was a little strong. Fewer grinds next time.

So many to choose from...

I imagine the best thing to do is look for a sampler box or order the smaller quantities, like I did already with the K cups, until I find one I like. Then I'll commit to 50.

My favorites:

Green Mountain
Dark Magic - dark roast
Double Black Diamond -dark roast
Sumatran Reserve - dark roast

Tully's
Breakfast Blend - light roast
House Blend - medium roast

Caribou
Daybreak - med roast
Obsidian - dark roast

I get all Extra Bolds, because I like lots of coffee (10-12 oz) and a couple of teas.

Yeah, but I mean those Kienna pods.
It adds a whole bunch more flavors to the Keurig arsenal.

We bought this because we wanted the convenience. We were tired of brewing two pots of coffee so SO could have her decaf and I could have my dark roast.

Andy,

As long as you are happy that is what matters.

Ok, so I suppose yer SO can be happy too.

pacanis, with the coffee pods you can create your own sampler. There is a link somewhere that will walk you thru it. You can do 50 different samples if you like. We did a 25 pack and got a couple of each type to see who liked what. Its a very smart way to let folks try their product without committing to giant portions. You do need the little adapter thingy though.

Oh, their customer service rocks too. They sent me the wrong stuff once. Told me to enjoy it and sent me a replacement asap.
