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 chocolate
  • toast
  • spice
  • merlot
  • shiraz

Medium Roast

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

Light Roast

  • flowers

What about my family and guests?

Hosting book club? Family breakfast? Surely, your guests’ coffee preferences will differ from one another. And probably from yours too. That is why it is always nice to have a selection of “mass appeal” pods on hand. These are K-Cup® coffee drinkers that will appeal to a broad range of drinkers. Mom likes light roast but Dad prefers flavored? This article lists ten choices both of them will enjoy.

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. 

Still not sure which to try? Look to your peers. These best-selling K-Cup® pods are the most popular among your fellow coffee drinkers. Or, a K-Cup® coffee subscription might help. Enjoy sampling different pods each month and you are sure to find a favorite! 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.

Cheers! ☕️
