The Drink: Kahlua Original By Timothy’s
Overall Rating: 3.25 Out Of 5 Coffee Mugs
Before you ask, no this version of Kahlua doesn’t actually have any alcohol it. I know, I was bummed too, but I won’t take any points off for false advertising! Of course, it did sound like the perfect K-Cup – I’m a huge fan of all things coffee and Kahlua is a great addition, especially during the holiday season.
Delicious notes of rum, vanilla and caramel, wrapped in roasted coffee flavor from hand-picked Arabica beans.
1Quick Cup Description
Kahlua Original had a sweet aroma with hints of rum (or maybe Kahlua liquor). It made me wonder if maybe after all I did need to have an ID to buy this K-Cup. Mixed into the aroma were hints of vanilla, cinnamon and caramel.
I’m not going to lie, I was hoping that this K-Cup tasted simply like coffee with Kahlua added. Instead I got something different from the chocolatey-coffee liquor that I’m fond of. It had a medium-dark roast taste that was almost over powered by the “rum like” flavor. The taste reminded me of a mixed drink with too much rum added. Yes, it is possible to add too much rum to a mixed drink. On the side, I did pick up hints on the described vanilla but no caramel.
A Kahlua Original box of 24 is $11.95 at 1QuickCup.
Kahlua Original by Timohty’s was good, but I think I’d rather just add Kahlua directly to my coffee in the future. Overall, this coffee earned a 3.25 on the Daily Shot Of Coffee K-Cup scale.
