EKOCUPS Organic Artisan Mexican Coffee, Medium Roast, in Recyclable cups,10 count

Rating: 5 out of 5 Skulls

Price: $6.99 for 10 K-cups

I love buying these small boxes of coffee.  I feel like it’s a great way to explore different brands and styles of coffee.  I’d love to try some of the other K-cup products available on the market.  Since I’ve been purchasing K-cups I’ve become more aware of how many of these tiny plastic cups I throw away each month.  I LOVE that these are recyclable!

I’m also in favor of the Organic  coffees so I’m happy to say this is also Organic.  EKO Cups have a great design and concept for their Organic, Fair Trade Mexican coffee.  These come in a pack of 10 so they are great for a trial or to share with friends.  Rufo and I shared the box between our 2 houses.  His mover even had an opportunity to try this Mexican coffee and really enjoyed it.

I typically go for a dark roast but this medium roast was light but still had a great flavor after my usual add-ins (almond milk and honey).  Rufo likes his black or with just honey.  We always use local honey.  It’s beneficial if you have outdoor allergies to eat some local honey every day.

If you like a medium or dark roast I would recommend this coffee.  Not only does it taste great but it’s great for the environment.

At first glance these pods are very unique.  They are in a bag that folds and reseals so that they stay fresh.  They aren’t completely enclosed in plastic like the normal K-cups.  They have a soft mesh pouch on the bottom that holds the ground coffee.  The coffee smells amazingly rich.  It’s the kind of coffee smell that’s rich and you can’t stop smelling it.  I often found myself opening the bag just to smell the rich indulgent smell.

The smell after the coffee was brewed was even more heavenly than just smelling the bag.  Every day I wake up at Rufo’s he makes me coffee in the morning.  It sounds like such a simple thing.  For someone who’s not a morning person having someone make you a cup of coffee in the morning is pure bliss.  I feel so spoiled.

If you read my last post about coffee you probably remember that I cannot drink my coffee black.  I did make it a point to try this to see how rich it was.  It was amazing with a strong, robust flavor.  I added my usual almond milk and honey and I could taste the pure rich delicious coffee through it.

If you love dark, rich coffee I recommend this.
