    Review of Caribou Coffee - K Cups

    This is my first post, lol. But I really want to do a review of these because it's my goto coffee and the source of my addiction :P

    Aroma: 8/10
    Notes: When the brewing finishes, I like to smell my coffees. I first tried Caribou a few months ago and when I smelled it, I was attacked by a beautiful scent of various berries and spices, it was fantastic. Wonderful aroma.

    Body/Thickness: 8.5/10
    Notes: This coffee has a very deep flavor (though I tend to add lots of sugar and cream, I did drink it straight off the brew and it was very thick.) when sugar and cream is added, a distinct berry/chocolate flavor comes out and it tastes fantastic.

    Flavor: 9.5/10
    Notes: As mentioned above, a distinct chocolate and berry flavor can be noticed in this brew. For a first time drinker, this flavor may be too abrasive and seem too strong, but once you get used to it, it's actually really really good.

    Aftertaste: 9/10
    Notes: After you taste the berries and chocolate when on your tongue, you can taste a sort of dark chocolate on the way down and if you really pay attention on the way down, you can still taste the berries.

    Overall: 35/40

    Fantastic coffee, I recommend it to anyone looking for a new coffee of choice or even a drink to have on a rainy day.

    Cheers!

    Caribou IMO is the best coffee shop place, plus them gave me free refills (maybe because I was there EVERYDAY for 2 to 3 hours) <3 them, since I moved the closes one to me is about 10 miles

    I've not had any Caribou coffee thought I have looked at it several times. Maybe I'll try some my next visit to stock up.

    Caribou has been Minnesota based company. Caribou is not part of Starbucks. Coffee has always been vastly different, with Caribou being much better in my opinion. Although Caribou Coffee was recently bought by a German company. I tried posting a link about the sale of Caribou, but I'm new to posting here. A quick Google about Caribou being sold will bring up plenty of results.

    I think K cups are a gift from heaven. Whenever they make Mountain Dew ones, my life will be complete.

    Caribou coffee is far better than Starbucks. This coffee has an impressive flavor profile. It is juicy, sweet and just light which gives satisfaction every time I sip and drink Caribou.

    I personally cant stand K cups. I get it...its convenient. But thats it...flavor wise it's not worth the convenience. What people also do not realize is you pay for that convenience! I did the math once and it comes out to 40 to 80 dollars a pound...just my 2 cents.

    I had chance to taste K- cup(nespresso) Espresso base drink and I thought it wasn't too bad but I still agree with Topher, its way too expensive.... 65cents per cup can add up quickly.
