Back by popular demand- Friday Kcup reviews! Every Friday at Cross Country Cafe we host a flavor review. Let’s face it the selection of K-cups we have to choose from is huge, how do you pick the right one? Who wants to buy an entire box and not like it?! Our goal is to describe how the coffee or tea tastes in simple layman’s terms so that you can determine if it suits your preferences. Let’s get to the review, up this week…Black Tiger.
Black Tiger is a dark roast, extra bold Kcup coffee is brought to us by the experts at Coffee People.
Coffee People is a very creative company coming up with quirky Kcup names that capture attention such as Jet Fuel, Tree Hugger and even Obama Blend! Perhaps their most popular is The Original Donut Shop.
But, if it is an earthy dark roast you are looking for then Black Tiger is the Kcup for you!
Black Tiger is reminiscent of Starbucks French Roast or Green Mountain Double Black Diamond. Three words describe this coffee dark, burnt and earthy. This is one of the darkest Kcups I have tried, a dash of cream barely changes the color but, creates a nice smooth mouthfeel.
The burnt taste that is so popular these days is very prevalent. An earthy flare is noticeable and adds a nice dimension. This roast is quite simple. There are not a lot of competing taste aspects. The roasters created a very straightforward Kcup coffee.
I would recommend Black Tiger Keurig Kcup coffee to dark roast and extra bold fans. Light, medium and flavored roast lovers need not apply : )
