Do you remember the way you fondled your Keurig when you delicately pulled it from its packaging and patted it into place on your kitchen counter? And now? Yeah, you still use it, but you’re just not sure which way to turn when it comes to ordering the best k cups. We totally understand (and sometimes, we’re inundated with k-cups under the Christmas tree from well-meaning, but misguided cousins too).
There’s still a lot of love to be had for your Keurig (and this list proves it)!
You may have read the barista ranking which was recently released and experienced a twinge of college coffee-elitism (though barista Lorenzo Perkins was hardly wrong in his assessments). And if you're still trying to figure out if a single cup brewer is right for you, The Coffee Detective can help you get started. The thing is that you’re just a regular guy who wants a good cup of coffee and some kcups on hand that the ladies like too. We get that. We also get the need to stay away from flavors with names like “Jamaica Me Crazy” and any k cup coffee flavor that resemble chicory moonshine. So, we’ll help you out. We've loaded the best Keurig Green Mountain coffee varieties and a few of the best Keurig coffee pods you can pick up for less.
How did we get here?
There are a lot of K-cups on the market, both Keurig-certified products and those that are compatible with your machine. But there are only so many products that live up to expectations – and those are the ones we focused on. To start, we took a look at the lists of favorites found on coffee lover blogs. Fifty-odd research hours and many cups of coffee later, we’ve compared all the best K-cups on the market against top indicators that real coffee drinkers care about.
Of course, you have to consider that coffee is a personal taste; not everyone is in for a full-bodied ride. Overwhelmingly, though, our research returned the same faves time and time again, but you’re welcome to take a look on your own.
There is one thing you should keep in mind whenever you do your own research - it's spelled Keurig, not kurig or kerig - even if you're looking for k cups cheap. We’re pretty sure that if you get any of the best k cup coffee faves, it’s all going to be alright (though; it may be the coffee, not The Walking Dead that keeps you awake tonight).
