Donut Shop K-Cups Just Make Sense

Colorful and tasty donuts

Brewing classic coffee with such ease is a privilege granted by modern K-Cup coffee brewing and put to perfect use by Coffee People Donut Shop Coffee K-Cup Pods.

When you go to your favorite donut shop, you might have sprinkles or sugar glaze on your mind, and you might not put too much thought into the coffee you plan on buying to go along with it. Still, that cup of coffee is a crucial part of the whole experience.

After all, that donut you’re about to eat just wouldn’t be quite as wonderful without a steaming cup of Joe to dip it into, right?

You know what we’re talking about: the way the coffee fills all the nooks and crannies and melts the glaze on the donut just a little bit… the sugary sweetness that dances with the crema on the surface of the cup. Coffee and donuts go together perfectly.

Donut Shop Coffee Is Special

The perfect companion to your breakfast confection, or enjoy on its own.

The perfect companion to your breakfast confection, or enjoy on its own.

But donut shop coffee is a special breed. It doesn’t need to be overly sweet, because technically speaking, that’s what the donut is for. No, donut shop coffee has a special role. The perfect companion coffee to your favorite fritter, Old Fashioned, or chocolate cake donut should be simple, bold, fresh, and robust: the perfect counterpoint to the confection’s sugary sweetness.

So what do you do if you’re in the mood for that sweet and savory harmony, but you don’t want to schlep down to the donut shop? Just pick up some donuts on your way home and pop a K-Cup of the Original Donut Shop Coffee into your Keurig. It’s the perfect solution!

The Hot New Thing From Coffee People

That’s right: Coffee People’s Donut Shop Coffee is available in the convenient K-Cup format. It’s sealed for freshness, medium-roasted to perfection, and ready to make your morning something special, whether that morning routine involves a donut or not!

Coffee People Original Donut Shop coffee is made from the finest quality Arabica beans, so you know it has plenty of smooth, delicious flavor. And now that you can brew it up individually by the K-Cup, there’s really no reason not to make it a part of your daily routine.

What a Way to Start Your Day!

Start your morning off right, with a cup of Coffee People Original Donut Shop Coffee. The donut? Well, that’s up to you. With this coffee, it’s certainly tempting to eat donuts for breakfast every day, but we’re not qualified to give dietary advice.

‘Tis the Season for Indulgent and Hot Beverages

christmas-drinks-and-hot-holiday-beverages

Mug cozy | Brianne Markowski, Flickr

The holidays are officially over but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy another couple month’s worth of yummy, hot seasonal beverages to make the winter season a little more enjoyable.

We know that seasonal coffee drinks like pumpkin spice lattes and eggnog lattes are on the minds of many right now, so we thought we’d give you a few recipes for these drinks and a couple of others (including a non-coffee bonus treat). If you love the flavors of the season, but don’t want to pay or drive for a hot drink from a coffee shop, you can make your own special recipes at home.

Pumpkin Spice Latte

green-mountain-coffee-pumpkin-spice-k-cups-seasonal

Pumpkin Spice can be enjoyed on its own or used as part of a delicious recipe.

Want to know how to make a real pumpkin spice latte, with real pumpkin instead of pumpkin flavoring? It’s easy. Simply brew one cup of coffee and pour it into a saucepan. Whisk in 1/4 cup of pureed pumpkin, a sprinkle of ground cinnamon and ground cloves, and 1/4 cup of milk like almond milk or soy milk. Heat to desired temperature, sweeten if you like, and pour into your favorite mug.

Peppermint Mocha

Peppermint mocha is a favorite hot holiday beverage because it offers fun and delicious flavors that have long been associated with the holiday. You can make your very own peppermint mocha with candy canes, cocoa, and a few other ingredients, for yourself and your family.

Kids love this drink, so if you have little ones, then you can easily substitute the brewed coffee for more milk and give them a coffee-free holiday beverage. For adults, whisk 1 cup brewed coffee, 1 heaping tablespoon unsweetened pure cocoa powder, 1/4 cup coconut or soy milk, 2 tablespoons sugar, and 1/8 teaspoon peppermint extract in a saucepan. Heat until it reaches the desired temperature, pour into a mug, and place a candy cane into each cup.

Eggnog Latte

green-mountain-coffee-spicy-eggnog-k-cups-seasonal

Spicy Eggnog is a traditional holiday favorite and can be enjoyed throughout the winter season.

We love making eggnog lattes with coconut milk. It makes for a rich and creamy eggnog latte that doesn’t have eggs in it, but it still has the familiar flavor of eggnog. Again, start with 1 cup of brewed coffee poured into a saucepan. Add 1/4 cup of full fat coconut milk, 2 tablespoons of sugar, a pinch of ground cinnamon and ground nutmeg, and 1/4 teaspoon of pure vanilla. Whisk, heat to desired temperature, and pour into a special mug.

Hot Apple Cider

To compliment your hot Christmas coffee drinks, you can make a warm apple cider on occasion. For this drink, you’ll want to pour 1 cup of organic apple cider into a saucepan. Add a pinch each of ground cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg. Heat until warm and ladle into your holiday mug.

Enjoy the Season With a Warm Cup in Your Hand!

All of these drinks are perfect winter treats, and they’re ideal for taking with you in to-go cups as you rush around town this season. Enjoy them, and enjoy the season!

Maxwell House and Gevalia K-Cups Arrive at CoffeeForLess

K-Cups: they’re convenient, quick, and delicious. They’re a great way to get a perfect cup of coffee every time. But there was a time when K-Cup lovers were faced with a limited selection. That time is long gone. Case in point: Maxwell House and Gevalia K-Cups.

Maxwell House K-Cups

Maxwell House: it’s a trusted coffee brand that needs no introduction. Since 1892, people who love robust, unpretentious coffee that’s “good to the last drop” have prized Maxwell House coffee.

maxwell-house-k-cups

New! Maxwell House K-Cup Pods at CoffeeForLess.com.

As legend has it, it was President Teddy Roosevelt who first uttered the “Good to the Last Drop” slogan that has adorned Maxwell House coffee tins since 1917. We can’t attest to the veracity of that historical account, but we certainly agree with the assessment.

Maxwell house still offers their time-tested original roast, but this venerated brand has decided to join the K-Cup revolution. Now, you can get the Original Roast and Master blend varieties in convenient K-Cup format. They’re every bit as invigorating and delicious as the Maxwell House coffee you know and love, but without any mess or fuss.

 Gevalia K-Cups

gevalia-coffee-k-cups

Choose from a selection of Gevalia K-Cup pods.

The Gevalia coffee brand is every bit as storied as Maxwell House, but where the former sticks largely to a few classic flavors, the latter embraces variety wholeheartedly. For more than 150 years, Gevalia has been offering delicious coffee, Swedish-style. The Gevalia lineup includes more than 30 premium coffees, iced coffee blends, and now, Keurig K-Cups, too. From exotic, single-bean varietals to smile-inducing flavor blends, this Scandinavian coffee purveyor has something for everyone.

There’s the Colombia blend, bright, rich, and full-bodied. There’s the Dark Royal Roast, a pure Arabica coffee roasted to robust, flavorful perfection. The Signature Blend’s trademark flavor is balanced and fresh, and the decaf is every bit as exciting as the standard variety.

Feeling playful? Try Gevalia Caramel Macchiato, Mocha Latte, or Vanilla Latte. It doesn’t matter how gloomy it gets outside; with this trio of deliciousness in your cupboard, your cup will always be warm and your spirits will stay high.

Join Us In Welcoming Maxwell House and Gevalia to the CoffeeForLess Family

We at CoffeeForLess.com are so pleased to announce that, beginning today, we will be proudly offering a wide selection of both Maxwell House and Gevalia coffees in convenient K-Cup format.

If you’re familiar with these excellent coffee brands, then you’re probably as excited as we are. But if you’ve never had the chance to try Maxwell House’s time-tested excellence, or Gevalia’s sophisticated and luxurious take on Swedish coffee deliciousness, then we’d encourage you to add one, the other, or both to your CoffeeForLess shopping cart this October. We think you’ll be glad you did!

America’s Obsession with the Pumpkin Spice Latte

pumpkin-spice-latte

Image: Michelle Schrank/Flickr

Love it or hate it, pumpkin spice is most likely here to stay – at least for a while. And no matter where you look when you’re out and about, pumpkin spice is everywhere: it’s a hair color, it’s being whipped into special limited offerings of conventional peanut butter, and even M&Ms now come in Pumpkin Spice Latte flavor.

It’s become an American obsession of sorts, and one that arguably began with either the pumpkin spice latte or pumpkin cheesecake, and then spread to air fresheners, candles, and a host of other edible and non-edible consumer packaged goods. But why all the craziness? Read on for our quick guide to this ongoing obsession with the pumpkin spice latte, and other things pumpkin spice.

What Exactly Is Pumpkin Spice?

The development of the pumpkin spice latte as a beverage is generally attributed to a certain Seattle coffee chain named Starbucks. The story goes that back in the early two-thousands, the well-known coffee chain was looking to extend the excitement of their holiday drink specials into the fall, and landed upon the pumpkin spice latte as a way to do just that.

The drink’s initial launch met with so much success, that Starbucks almost couldn’t keep up with demand for the combination of espresso, milk, milk-foam, whipped cream, and three traditional pumpkin pie spices.

Current Popularity of and Obsession with the Beverage

As mentioned, the pumpkin spice latte launched to wide-spread popular acclaim. And despite its detractors, it has continued to grow in popularity over the last decade or so. Indeed, a cursory search for “pumpkin spice” online yielded more than fifteen thousand products associated with the keywords.

And now, just about every coffee shop in America is either selling pumpkin spice lattes seasonally, year-round, or else they’re missing out on profits if they refuse to get on the bandwagon.

The Flavor of the Future Is Pumpkin?

Given the nigh-ridiculous popularity of the simple combination of coffee, milk, whipped cream, nutmeg, clove, and cinnamon, it’s easy to see why manufacturers of other foodstuffs (and hair dyes, etc.) have rushed to jump on the seasonal bandwagon.

Now that nearly every conceivable food has been converted, albeit seasonally, into some hybridized version of pumpkin spice latte, the last frontier for pumpkin spice may be in its use as a color. The aforementioned coffee-inspired hair dye may only be the first in a long line of pumpkin spice-colored products to come!

Love it or hate it, you won’t be able to get away from pumpkin spice, during the holidays anyway, for at least the next few years. And if you love it, then it’s time to celebrate! The season of the specialty drink is upon us!

Get Your Kids Back to School With Your Favorite Morning Coffee

back-to-school-coffee-routine

Morning routine | Liz West, Flickr

Summer is coming to a close and it’s near time to get the kids back to school. Along with shopping for school clothes and school supplies, you also need to plan how you’re going to manage your morning coffee time, once those classes begin.

There’s a lot to do on a school morning: getting kids out of bed, making sure everyone is dressed and teeth are brushed, and remembering lunches and backpacks – and really, that’s just for the children. Even if you work out of the home, then you still need to get yourself ready, too!

Plan for Coffee in the Morning’s Schedule

In the middle of all the hustle and bustle, you have to find time to prepare your morning beverage, because, you know, you need it to keep you sane and functioning.

It’s not an addiction or anything, we get that. It’s just that morning cup is a nice ritual to wake up to each day. Morning coffee is soothing, the hot beverage tastes great, and it does tend to offer a bit of a pick-me-up when you need it most.

As you prepare for back to school time, let us help you arrange for what to do about your morning coffee. We have some great ideas, so that you can keep that “coffee first” routine you’ve had all summer.

Morning Coffee, With or Without a Timer

Unless you set a concrete plan for your morning when you’re busy in the back-to-school schedule, it may get overlooked. With that in mind, try any of the following ideas to ensure you get your morning coffee without delay.

Try setting a timer on an automatic machine to have your morning coffee ready exactly when you need it. Then, all you need to do is add a bit of sugar and milk if you like, and sip it as you’re getting ready in the morning, or pour it into a portable mug to take with you on the way to dropping the kids off at school.

If you don’t have a coffee maker with a timer, then prepare your drink the minute you get up in the morning. Set your alarm to ring 5 minutes before you need to dress and wake kids up. Go to the kitchen, start brewing, and then grab it on the way out.

Morning Coffee Accessories: From Ice to the Mug

If you like iced coffee, then try to make a batch of cold brew the night before. Then in the morning, you can simply pour your chilled beverage into a tumbler with some ice, and you’re good to go.

One important accessory to have for your favorite morning coffee during back to school time is a portable coffee mug. We suggest you purchase a couple of these, so that you don’t have to worry about washing one every day, especially if you leave yours in the car every once in a while.

To-go cups made with ceramic are nice, because they don’t leach any plastic flavor into your drink. Just make sure you choose one with a secure lid and one that fits into the cup holders in your car.

When you set aside a bit of time to make a plan for your morning coffee, you’ll be able to enjoy the delicious drink you’re used to – even when school means that a hectic schedule is par for the course.

Seasonal Pumpkin Spice K-Cups Are Back

Cinnamon, nutmeg, a hint of clove, the spiced-pumpkin custard taste of Fall is back! Green Mountain Coffee Pumpkin Spice K-Cups are the taste of Autumn that many of us wait for all year, and they are back in stock at CoffeeForLess. Buy Green Mountain K-Cups by the green-mountain-coffee-pumpkin-spice-k-cups-24ctcase and stock up because this seasonal favorite is one that we always have trouble keeping in stock. It’s just too popular.

We make sure our regular customers get first dibs on this exceptional flavored coffee K-Cup by announcing it and all of the seasonal K-Cups via our newsletter, Twitter, Facebook, and blog pages. If you love this flavored K-Cup as much as we know many of you do, then keep in touch and never miss out on another seasonal K-Cup.

Pumpkin Spice Coffee Continue The Spiced Coffee Tradition

The spices that make Pumpkin Spice Coffee K-Cups great are traditional to seasonal desserts at this time of year, from pumpkin pie, to pumpkin nut roll, and even simple pumpkin spice custard. Vanilla bean adds to these desserts sweetness along with cinnamon. Nutmeg and clove give the desserts a tangy intensity, a sharp bite that balances out the sweetness.

All of these spices are traditional to coffee as well for much the same reason. They accent coffee flavors in much the same way that they blend do with pumpkin. Vanilla coffee, cinnamon coffee, a sprinkle of nutmeg, all are café standards.

With Green Mountain Coffee Pumpkin Spice K-Cups, you can enjoy these traditional coffee and dessert flavors a single cup at a time, brewed with the convenience of Keurig K-Cup coffee brewing. Each cup has the pumpkin spiced coffee flavor that combines traditional Autumn dessert taste with quality Green Mountain Coffee. This flavored coffee is a grey dessert alternative the finish a great meal, one that many find supports their weight-loss plans.
