2 Rise K Cups review
I got the opportunity to try out some K cups from 2 Rise. I chose a medium blend, because I like dark but my mom and family like light. Wimps. "Coffee" water isn't considered coffee in my book in the same way "sweet red wine" isn't wine. My mom tried first. She confessed it "bitter." I tried, and I didn't find it bitter at all. I actually loved the flavor. I did find it darker than a "medium" roast though. I'm accustomed to mixing a flavored coffee (because I'm special) with an espresso bean (because I'm ornery.) This definitely had almost the oomph I'm used to. My cousin tried it and although it was too dark for him, he didn't think it was bitter either. The only thing that I didn't like (which may be a defect of the Keurig itself) was that my cup seemed a bit grainy. I checked to make sure my bag hadn't ripped (it didn't) so that was that. I don't really care, as my everyday coffee sometimes does that too, especially at the end of the pot.
In all, I thought this k cup was a robust roast that ended mellow. Similar to a breakfast blend from McDonald's or Dunkin Donuts, except darker and you pay less at home! I would be interested in trying the light and dark of this brand to see how they compare. Well, my family would be interested in trying the light, and I would want to see how the dark compares with this darker "medium" roast. I received this product in exchange for my unbiased opinion, and as a dark roast coffee drinker, I thought this medium roast was a good flavor all around!
