If you’ve had it already, then you know how great it is, but if you have not had the joy of this spring seasonal coffee K-Cup, read on. Our review today highlights many of the reasons our customers have told us this is their favorite coconut flavored K-Cup.

Green Mountain Coffee Island Coconut K-Cups Cup Experience

This seasonal is truly a treat, one that has been reviewed before as “the best coffee I have ever had,” and while that may seem like hyperbole, the difficulty we have trying not to sell out of this seasonal is a testament to the truth in those reviews. Light roast coffee is enhanced with just the right amount of savory-sweet coconut flavor to ensure that this flavored coffee from Green Mountain Coffee seems to appeal to most any palate.

Upon brewing, Island Coconut K-Cups have a bright, exciting light roast aroma that has distinctly sweet undertones of coconut. The result is a very sumptuous yet not overbearing aroma that, once you are familiar with this brew, kicks the salivary glands into action like Pavlov’s bell. The mouth remembers, and the mouth loves this coffee.

In the cup, it is light roast in appearance with a very mild oil and cling. The aroma is intensified in concentration, and the lighter color does not belie the truly full flavor of this coffee.

Green Mountain Coffee Island Coconut Coffee has a very balanced acidity that highlights a mildly citric character balanced against the smoother coffee tastes highlighted by coconut flavoring. The coconut flavor in these K-Cups is not perfumed or at all like coconut candy. It is like coconut macaroons but less sweet. It draws out the savory flavors of this light roast and truly foregrounds them against the fruitier acids of the light roast.

Cases of Green Mountain Coffee Island Coconut Coffee are available, and you may want to consider buying it in such quantities. This one won’t last, and as a seasonal, it’s only around for a limited time.

  4. this counds like it might be a great coffee for early morings by the lake.

  5. This is a fabulous summer coffee — the aroma makes me feel like I’ve gone on a tropical vacation. It is not just great for the morning — it makes a wonderful iced coffee drink in the afternoon, as well. So happy it is back — now I just need some 70 degree weather and sunshine!

  6. I think I will try this.I like a light to medium roast coffee in my keurig I have found after trying a number of different types.Which is odd because I prefer medium to dark in my Bunn.It sounds interesting and alluring,coconut macaroons and coffee,yummy.

  22. If there is a flavor that is so popular, then why don’t you sell it year round? I would like to be able to purchase Island Coconut and it is no longer available, not even online. Is there anywhere that sells it right now? Thanks
