TIP OF THE DAY: Holiday Coffee

We typically take advantage of the holiday blend coffees to switch up our caffeine consumption. In past years, it was always a bag of ground coffee, and we’d make a whole pot, whether or not others wanted to participate.

But now, with the proliferation of Keurig single-cup brewers and other brands that use K-Cups, it’s easier to enjoy a quick cup.

It’s time to bring on the holiday K-cups. You can find these limited edition coffees at retailers and online. Here’s a selection of coffees for the holiday season:
 
Barrie House Pumpkin Spice K Cups

Arabica beans are blended with the spicy flavor of holiday pumpkin pie. More information.
 
Dunkin Donuts Pumpkin Favor K Cups

Grab a seasonal donut when you pick up a box of these! More information.

 
Green Mountain Pumpkin Spice

Green Mountain’s medium roast coffee is infused with flavors of cinnamon, pumpkin and nutmeg. More information.

Get the ground coffee in bags.
 
Starbucks Thanksgiving Blend K Cups

Starbucks doesn’t have a pumpkin-flavored coffee, but produces a Thanksgiving Blend they describe as a “rich fall brew [that] features herbal notes with Sumatran beans and elegant soft spice from the coffee of Guatemala’s Antigua region. You’ll find it pairs well with the entire Thanksgiving meal, from savory turkey to sweet pumpkin pie.” It’s certified OU kosher. More information.
 
Seasonal Sampler

You can get a 30-count K-Cup assortment of holiday and winter cappuccino, chai, cider, coffee and tea from different brewers. Check out the Brewers Variety Pack Sampler with K-Cups from Brooklyn Beans, Crazy Cups, Green Mountain, Grove Square, Twinings and others.
 
Consider holiday K-Cups as a gift for your favorite Keurig owner.
 
FOR TEA DRINKERS

Take a look at Harney & Sons for delicious holiday teas and gift sets.

There are also two good candidates that are enjoyed year-round, but have notes of holiday spices:

  • Constant Comment, a very popular brand that is blended with sweet spices and orange peel
  • Masala chai, the generic term for Indian spiced tea, which is usually shortened to “chai” in the U.S.
  •  
    We think we’ll make a cup right now.
