Café Escapes – Café Mocha: K-Cup

Obviously I’m a huge fan of the Keurig. Why, it’s like having a barista in your own home. Ok, not quite since the Keurig can’t respond with witty banter like the lovely caffeinated folks down at Starbucks, but I think you get my point. When I was at Target the other day, I discovered Café Mocha K-Cups for the Keurig. You could say that I was floored upon my discovery.

These K-Cups are from the Green Mountain Coffee company, branched under a brand called “Café Escapes.” They come in a box of 16-24 and are about $11 – 18 for a box. Not too bad. That’s about $0.68 – $0.75 a K-Cup.

On to the important stuff – taste. Wow. Incredibly succulent and chocolaty. And these K-Cups aren’t sickeningly sweet either. I’d say they have the same similar deep chocolate flavor that Starbucks’ Café Mocha Lattes have. They have the taste of chocolate but still maintain the flavor of coffee. A K-Cup that is well done in my opinion.

If mocha lattes or mocha anything is your game, then I highly recommend these K-Cups to you. (Assuming you own a Keurig that is.) Café Escapes also have Hot Chocolate and Chai Tea Latte K-Cups. (The Chai Tea Latte variety is wonderful.)
