K Cup Review: Barista Prima Italian Roast
I recently signed up for Green Mountains Cafe Express Coffee Club so that I never run out of K Cups again. I found their prices to be comparable to the cups I buy at Target and I'm hoping this will save me money in the long run because I won't run to Target for a $12 box of coffee and then spend $100.
I know this happens to people other than me. Target is a money suck!
I was really excited to see what all of the buzz was about with this new line of K Cups called Barista Prima. They are a little bit more expensive than my old standby but I don't mind for paying more for a really great cup of coffee. This will be my weekend coffee. Because I deserve it.
The website describes the Italian Roast as robust, heavy-bodies and very dark. The first thing that I noticed was that it is very smooth and even though I did add a little bit of half and half....it was really creamy. It makes me want to sit in front of a fireplace with a book. I'm telling you....it instantly gave me a homey feeling.
Coffee should make you feel good. I believe this is THE perfect cup of coffee.
**disclosure: Green Mountain and Barista Prima didn't pay me for this review. I just love coffee and sharing my finds with my friends and readers.
