Brooklyn Beans Cinnamon Subway Single Cups Review

ReviewbrooklynbeanroasterycinnamonsubwaysinglecupsIMGP5655

When Keurig’s K-Cup patents expired a while back, we saw all sorts of third-party companies create various forms of K-Cup knock-offs and new formats of Keurig-compatible single serve options hit the market. Some were truly horrendous (freeze-dried coffee crystals in a K-Cup capsule) while others were outstanding (Marley’s Real Cups line-up). One of the first companies that came out with their own take on the K-Cup aftermarket was Brooklyn Bean Roastery back in 2010. Through a combination of proprietary tension-based filters and the familiar K-Cup capsule & lid format, they managed to achieve the look, feel & quality that most K-Cup consumers were already familiar with.

The OneCup - An Environmentally Friendly Single Serving Coffee

Rogersfamilycoffee video

Rogers Family Coffee has produced a pretty compelling video that showcases one of our issues - that throwing away single serve coffee K-Cups and other formats into the trash is not great. The OneCup Single Serving Coffee - 97% Bio-Degradable video spells out all the details on how Rogers Family Coffee made a more recyclable and environmentally friendly single cup of coffee.

One of the best analogies is how tea bags can be environmentally friendly - then why not single cups? Also price is a factor for Rogers Family Coffee, and it's great to see that aspect teased out. Also - the single serve coffee format has always been a way to not throw out a pot of coffee you don't drink, but the solution isn't to add waste by throwing out 100s of K-Cups.

Video is after the jump.

Seattle's Best Coffee Introducing K-Cups

Seattle's Best K-Cups

Over the Summer we found Seattle's Best was testing K-Cups at Subway restaurants indicating sometime in the future they would be selling them at retail. The future of Seattle's Best selling K-Cups at supermarkets is now. Seattle's Best Coffee is launching K-cups and instant-coffee packages to be sold in supermarkets, and this means Starbucks is adding even more to it's retail presence and how important single serve coffee is to Starbucks.

Seattle's Best is also launching two new roast blends - House Blend and Breakfast Blend. The packaging from this summer has changed to a red and white design to distinguish it a bit more from other single serve coffee offerings.

The entire line up of Seattle's Best coffee blends include:

  • Seattle's Best Breakfast Blend K-Cups
  • Seattle's BestSignature Blend 3 K-Cups
  • Seattle's BestToasted Hazelnut K-Cups
  • Seattle's BestHouse Blend K-Cups
  • Seattle's BestVery Vanilla K-Cups

Keurig 2.0 - Home Brewing System to Brew a Single Cup and a Carafe of Coffee Using Keurig Brand Packs

Keurig20 brewer carafe single cup

Green Mountain Coffee Roasters and Keurig brewing technology, today detailed its new K-Carafe capability for its Keurig 2.0 Brewing System, available for sale in Fall 2014. Keurig 2.0 brewers will be the first system to brew both one cup using a single serve pack and a carafe of coffee using the new Keurig K-Carafe pack. We've anxiously been waiting to see if the Keurig 2.0 would be able to use VUE and K-Cup packs, but it looks like being able to meet the needs of a large pot of coffee is what Keurig 2.0 is all about. 

'Both current Keurig brewer owners and non-owners told us the brewer functionality they wanted most was the ability to brew both a single serving and a pot of coffee from one system with Keurig speed, convenience and brand choice. Our next generation Keurig 2.0 brewers will do just that,' said Brian P. Kelley, President and CEO of GMCR.

Brooklyn Beans K Cups

The Brooklyn Beans Variety Pack Coffee Single Cup Coffee for Keurig K-Cup Brewers is a 40-count Brooklyn Bean Roastery sampler pack which includes four samples of the following light, medium, and dark-roast blends: Breakfast Blend, Boardwalk Blend, Brooklyn Bridge, Colombian, Cyclone, Donut Shop, Fugheddaboutit and French Roast.

We’ve been sampling various Brooklyn Beans Coffees over the past month or so and can safely say their Donut Shop and Breakfast Blends are two of our favorites. If you haven’t tried any of the Brooklyn Beans Coffee at just $22 bucks this is the way to get into the Brooklyn Beans Coffee game. 

Here’s a few reasons why you should check out Brooklyn Beans Coffees for your K-Cup Brewer:

  • Highest quality of coffee beans; 100% Arabica coffee beans available in 12 specialty blends. Revolutionary ‘Roast2Cup’ processing for extra freshness and premium flavor. You are guaranteed a fresh-brewed cup every time. Crafted with pride in the USA. Compatible with many popular single-serve coffee machines.
  • Brooklyn Beans Roastery is the first independently owned, single-serve coffee company using ‘Roast2Cup’ technology, a process that ensures the best cup of coffee every time you brew. Not your everyday cuppa Joe, see?
  • Unwavering Quality Five separate, important quality-control checks are performed with every batch we make:
  • Visual inspection – only the best coffee beans make the initial cut. Supervisor-monitored grinding – A little secret: if it’s too coarse, it won’t brew properly; if it’s too fine, the coffee gets bitter.
  • Portion quality control – precisely the right amount is packed to ensure the best brew every time. 

A special thanks to Brooklyn Beans for sending us a variety of their single cups to try.
