Freshly roasted coffee in a Keurig-compatible cup? Impossible, they said! So we made our own.
Our popular ChocoZilla with natural milk chocolate tones, freshly roasted every week and packed into specially designed, Keurig-compatible single serving cups. We were honestly amazed by how good this coffee tastes in a Keurig: rich, fragrant, with an almost espresso-like profile. Notes of caramel and butter complement the milk chocolate tones.
Box of 12 Fresh-Cups, standard 42mm size. 100% recyclable. See below for more details about Fresh-Cups.
The first truly fresh Keurig-compatible cup! We roast and pack these cups fresh every week, preserving that perfect freshly-roasted taste in each individual serving. When you open your box, you'll see the cups have slightly domed lids, showing that they are under pressure inside. That's proof the coffee was packed while still "outgassing" (releasing carbon dioxide after roasting).
Regular K-Cups need a long shelf life, so they can't be packed until they are totally done outgassing, which can take days. After that, they sit at the factory, then sit at the store, then sit in your pantry... by the time you drink the coffee, it's months old (120 days is the average). No wonder so many of us find the coffee disappointing. And, it's also the reason we never offered our own coffee in Keurig-compatible cups--until now.
When we first began experimenting with these new cups, we were blown away. We honestly had no idea our Keurig was capable of giving us such a fantastic cup of coffee. Customers have been begging us for years to make a Keurig-compatible cup, but previous cups we tried simply weren't good enough. But now, at last, we have hit a winning combination of the perfect cup, the perfect grind, and the perfect roast.
Fresh-Cups consist of a plastic outer cup with a foil lid and a specially designed paper filter inside, which ensures the water flows through at the optimal speed for maximum flavor extraction. All components are recyclable. These are produced right here at Heirloom Coffee headquarters.
Note that Fresh-Cups are perishable, like other fresh produce. That amazing just-roasted taste begins to fade in time. We recommend using them within three or four weeks of the shipping date to get the best flavor. They are not meant to sit on shelves.
Our second chocolatey coffee, once intended as a limited edition, now a permanent offering thanks to popular demand!
ChocoZilla is primarily Brazilian St. Domingos Arabica, blended with Vietnamese Robusta for added punch and depth. Whereas Mocharagua is intense dark chocolate, ChocoZilla is a sweeter milk chocolate. It's a bit lighter and brighter, too, quite refreshing. Perfect both for fans of chocolatey coffees in general, and especially for anyone looking for one with more subtlety (ideal for serving to groups).
As always, no additives or flavorings. Just the natural tastes and aromas of the coffee beans. Delicious hot or iced, takes well to milk and sugar. We have been enjoying it as cold brew also, where it has the time to really develop its natural chocolate tones.
