Caribou Coffee has a special place in my coffee experience. I credit it as being one of the brands that officially introduced me to the world of gourmet coffee. Many years ago when I worked in Washington D.C., there was a Caribou Coffee cafe located right around the corner from my office building. And ever since trying their extremely smooth coffee blends, I've been a fan ever since. Out of all of their exquisite blends, one stands out the most for me: Caribou Coffee Medium Roast K cups® .
It's commonly known among coffee drinkers that the whole bean version of a coffee will be fresher than the same coffee in a Keurig K Cup delivery form. As a general rule, this is true. But there are many exceptions where they are both equally enjoyable with minimal difference in taste. Caribou Coffee Medium Roast K cups® are one such exception. I can't speak to the technical reasons for why Caribou Coffee is able to minimize the differences between their whole bean and k up forms, but all I can say my palette doesn't really care.
The Caribou Coffee Medium Roast is almost universally regarded as being a very bodied and rich blend especially for a medium roast. Personally speaking, it's smoothness rivals that of Gevalia which in my book has set the gold standard for a smootheness. As many coffee drinkers know, the real flavor of the coffee isn't in the moment you drink it. Rather, it's in the flavors that linger and coat the tongue shortly after the coffee gets drunk. This is where the Caribou Coffee Medium Roast K Cup shines in my opinion. It offers a soothing mix of flavors that is remarkably balanced in every way. With this gourmet coffee blend, there's no unpleasant aftertaste and it's not overwhelming in the least. It's one of those blends that I can drink early in the morning or late in the evening. If you're new to Caribou Coffee, I highly recommend checking out this medium roast blend. There's also a Caribou Coffee Decaf Medium Roast available as well for those who want the same enriching coffee experience without the caffeine. So sit back and pop one of that bad boys into your Keurig coffee machine and enjoy smooth and balanced coffee at its finest.
