Cafe Bustelo Espresso Style K-Cups Review

Reviewcafebusteloespressostylekcups kcup shot

Cafe Bustelo is a brand which, until recently, was a brand mainly known only to the latin community as it’s been a staple in bodegas for about the past 80 years or so. The brand had hit a slump until it underwent a rebranding a few years ago which aimed new products such as canned iced coffee (Bustelo Cool) as well as the brand itself towards a younger generation. Today the brand is popular amongst hipsters & those who simply enjoy a good, strong coffee. It’s also been gaining popularity in Hollywood with the brand appearing at various events from Coachella to the Oscars. 

The brand got its start when its founder, Gregorio Bustelo moved from Spain to Cuba in the 1920s & got hooked on the coffee style popular in the region. He decided to take up the practice of coffee roasting and later moved to Puerto Rico. Once US Congress passed the Jones-Shafroth Act which granted people of Puerto Rico US citizenship, Gregorio moved his family to the East Harlem region of New York City and used the last of his savings to buy a coffee roaster after falling on hard times trying to find work. As luck would have it, his home was located near a theatre and he would start roasting coffee around the time patrons would be let out each night after the end of each show. The smell lured people to his home and he started selling coffee each night. By 1931, the first Bustelo Coffee Roasters shop opened up on 5th Avenue between 113th & 114th streets as the business took off. Today, the brand is owned by Rowland Coffee Roasters Inc. based out of Miami, Florida. The rest, as they say, is history.

Special Reserve Nespresso Maragogype Grand Cru 2014

NESPRESSO SPECIAL RESERVE MARAGOGYPE CAPSULE 2 jpg

Nespresso is at it again with a Special Reserve Maragogype Grand Cru for 2014. Following the success of Hawaii Kona Special Reserve 2012, Nespresso coffee experts have created a Special Reserve Maragogype Grand Cru 2014, composed of extremely rare and immensely precious coffee variety with uncommonly large coffee beans from Central and South America.

‘With Maragogype we have proudly outdone ourselves again,’ said Karsten Ranitzsch, Head of Coffee Nestlé Nespresso SA. ‘Thanks to our longstanding relationships with coffee smallholders, we could source the best Maragogype beans from four distinct origins. We have carefully blended and roasted them to highlight the specificities of their terroir. Due to the scarcity of these precious beans we can only produce a very limited amount, but it is our a privilege to offer this unique sensory experience to connoisseur Club Members who enjoy trying new and rare varieties.’

The Maragogype derives its name from a town in Brazil of the same name where the plant was first discovered in the late 19th century. The unusually large coffee plant, often twice the size of regular coffee plants, has the largest known coffee beans in the world.

Keurig 2.0 Brewer - Is It Worth the Upgrade?

K 20 large

Over at NASDAQ.com they're thinking it's going to be a tough time for Keurig 2.0 if there's not compelling reason to upgrade. Do you think it's worth the upgrade to move to Keurig 2.0? Are you having a tough time thinking about an upgrade when the new brewers cost $129.99 or more and you have a working brewer? You're not alone, and to upgrade they'll need even more K-Cup options and K-Carafe options to entice current customers. 

NASDAQ.com also lays 3 reasons Keurig 2.0 will have a tough time with consumers:

  • Vue has been a failure - No one bought it and those who did can still use VUE packs and K-Cups with an adaptor - but it's over.
  • There is no reason to upgrade - Besides the larger K-Carafe pack is there really anything the new brewers do that's revolutionary?
  • Customers will be annoyed when they buy an unlicensed K-Cup and it does not work -when your old brewer will brew any K-Cup would you switch to a device that makes you only buy Keurig Brewed?

We think in the long run Keurig Green Mountain should be fine, but they'll need to ride these rough waters while the brewer an DRM debacle subsides. Are you upgrading and if you have do you like your new brewer and choices? Who do you think will crack the DRM first and make K-Cups for Keurig 2.0 that are unlicensed?

Campbell's Fresh Brewed Soup K-Cups Missing In Action

Campbell Soup K Cups two

Just last year we had crazy news that Campbell’s Fresh Brewed Soup K-Cups were coming to a Keurig brewer near you. It’s been awhile and they were supposed to ship this Fall but so far nothing. We haven’t heard a peep about soup in a K-Cup.

The agreement last year was supposed to bring the number one single serve coffee maker and the number one soup maker together to bring you Campbell's Fresh-Brewed Soup. The convenient snack will be prepared at the touch of a button, and a mini-meal from a K-Cup will be produced.

We still want our Campbell’s Soup K-Cups - don’t you?

Lavazza Perfetto Coffee K-Cups Review

Keurig lavazza perfetto kcups brewer kcups

 

We conclude our series of Lavazza K-Cup reviews today with the final flavor in their line-up… Lavazza Perfetto K-Cups. This is apparently the strongest roast & strongest tasting coffee of the line-up. Given how disappointed we were with their Gran Selezione K-Cups last time, we’re truly hoping for a return to form this time. Lets see if Lavazza strike out or knock it out of the park. 

Brewing the Lavazza Perfetto K-Cups resulted in aromas of smoky hickory tinged with notes of dark chocolate throughout with a very mild earthiness underneath. Billed as an espresso roast, flavor seemed more akin to a dark roast and wasn’t anywhere as strong as what we were expecting. We did however notice a nice blend of chocolate flavors with caramel notes hiding underneath near the end of each sip.
