Coffee drinkers can be a varied bunch. On the one hand, you have coffee purists who prefer unflavored coffee. Folks in this camp enjoy savoring the pure essence of coffee bean flavor without any distractions to their palette. Their version of variety consist of light roast, medium roast, and dark roast. On the other end of the spectrum, you'll find coffee drinkers that will only drink the most exotic coffee blends that generally have a minimum of 3 words to describe each flavor. Flavors such as swirly butter toffee, decadent chocolate tiramisu, or exquisite raspberry truffle are often their cup of tea…or coffee. Most coffee drinkers will fall somewhere in between these two extremes. Regardless of which camp you fall into, this article is written for those who are looking to liven up their coffee experience with some of the best exotic K cups® on the market.
Before moving forward, we have to define what exotic K cups® means as we use it here. We consider it to be those fancier blends that you wouldn't be able to find at just any coffeehouse. For example, Hazelnut and French Roasts while being unquestionably tasty, aren't considered exotic since they're fairly mainstream flavors. Below we've put together a list of 5 exotic k cup coffee blends that we found to be exquisite in flavor. Some coffee purists may balk at some of the extravagant names of these blends. Admittedly, I was one of those coffee drinkers that felt a little funny drinking something like Macadamia Cookie K cups® . But when I got over any stereotypes associated with drinking fancy coffee flavors, exotic K cups® would change my coffee world forever.
