Single Serve Pods, Who Wants to Drink Alone?!


Hello again, I have decided to grace you with another one of my captivating blog posts….or to ask you to listen to me ramble with style!  The choice is yours on how you see it, it’s all a matter of perspective.


Some of you may be wondering why I would spend so much time talking about a single serve pod, but did you know that I am actually talking about K Cups.  I’ll bet you didn’t, that was super sneaky of me!  Now that the cat is out of the bag let’s talk about these fantastic little vehicles of enjoyment.  Now, I know for a fact that all of you reading this on the Hidden River site just about fell off of your chairs.  Hidden River is the pinnacle of quality and a single serve pod simply does not fit that profile!  I am very excited to write this for you and let you know that, YOUR WRONG!  Ok, a bit harsh but not altogether untrue.  I am not saying that we aren’t the pinnacle of coffee, we definitely are and in fact we are the finest coffee in the universe…we’ve checked but I’ll save that story for another day.  We decided to turn this wonderful little bundle of convenience on its head and see if we could make it meet our standards aaaannd we did!


Over the course of two years or a couple of days, with that much caffeine flowing through your veins, time does some really weird things.  For the sake of argument I will go with a few days, anyways after many many many many many cups of coffee to test for taste, strength, and brew quality we finally did it!  We succeeded at making the hated the beloved.  K Cups from Hidden River Roasters are officially fantastic and allow you to pop a pod in your brewer, sit back, and enjoy.  We have packed nearly double the amount of coffee into these little wonders that you will find in most if not all of the other single serve pods that you have ever tried.  No longer will these pods be relegated to “I guess it is better than nothing” status, we have successfully elevated them to “Yes Please!”

I imagine when you have recovered from the shock of the news I have shared with you the question of “What brewer is worthy of such a pod?”  You don’t have to admit it out loud, it’s ok.  Here’s the thing, I don’t have a choice.  I have tested the pods on multiple different machines from the most basic to a really nice one that I think even winked at me, I am still a bit uncomfortable from that one but the coffee was outstanding so I let it slide.  There was no difference in coffee from the brewers, it was all fantastic!  


Now let me tell you, it was never a guarantee that we were going to have K Cups due to the fact that I wasn’t sure when we started if it would actually work and meet my standards.  They have arrived and I am super excited for you to try them.  That’s enough for now, head right now to hiddenriverroasters.com and order yours!  You can’t have the experience if you don’t have the pods!
