How do I know what type of coffee I like?

To choose the best K-Cup® coffee you will need to know what roasting level you prefer. It is easy to pick based on your preferences for chocolate, wine, and other taste indicators. For example, do you devour all the white chocolate you can? If the answer is yes, you are likely to enjoy light roast coffees.

Dark Roast

  • dark chocolate
  • toast
  • spice
  • merlot
  • shiraz

Medium Roast

  • milk chocolate
  • caramel
  • honey
  • pinot noir
  • chardonnay

Light Roast

  • white chocolate
  • fruit
  • flowers
  • pinot grigio

What if I don’t like coffee?

Tea and hot cocoa drinkers, we have not forgotten about you. There are plenty of Keurig® options for non-coffee drinkers. Herbal tea and hot cocoa are at the top of the list. Plus, you can get creative. In this article, the author describes how to make oatmeal, ramen noodles, and desserts with your brewer!

Keurig® has always been about simplicity. One cup of coffee just for you. But over the years it got confusing as more companies jumped on the bandwagon. It is up to us to make a return to that simple beginning by making your favorite K-Cup® easy to pick. Easy to find. Easy to love.
