Spicy Eggnog Keurig Kcup coffee is a light roast, flavored coffee that is also Fair Trade certified. This is a seasonal, limited edition coffee brought to us by the flavored coffee experts- Green Mountain Roasters.
There is nothing that puts you in the mood for the holidays like eggnog. My favorite family tradition is sipping eggnog while watching It's a Wonderful Life. Thanks to Green Mountain eggnog flavors can now be enjoyed in the form of coffee!
Traditional eggnog offers a smooth flavor with hints of nutmeg. Nutmeg is one of those great spices that will enhance the taste of coffee. I am quite certain that Green Mountain had that in mind when they created all of their limited edition seasonal Kcup coffees.
I brewed my Spicy Eggnog Kcup coffee on the highest water setting of my Keurig brewer. I have decided to use that setting for all of my reviews simply for consistency sake. However, had I been brewing this Kcup coffee for another reason I would have chosen the middle water setting. I enjoy a large mug filled to the top but, not for the sake of losing a great coffee body and flavorful experience.
The taste of Spicy Eggnog Keurig Kcup coffee is unique. Although it is not literally creamy, it has a creamy taste accented with hints of nutmeg all combined with a smooth coffee taste. The flavor is not overpowering, the dominate flavor is still that of coffee (this made me very happy!). There is no bitterness and I found it quite easy to drink.
I would highly recommend this Kcup coffee to flavored, light and medium roast drinkers. Dark roast fans need not apply.
