The Drink: Original Donut Shop By The Coffee People
Overall Rating: Three Out Of Five Coffee Mugs
You may have heard of this proverb “don’t judge a book by it’s cover.” I’m sure one or two people have used it.
Anyways, it reminded me of this K-cup called the Original Donut Shop by The Coffee People. Looking at the lid of this k-cup and I thought I was going to be getting a sweet, flavored coffee that might taste like my favorite donut.
It wasn’t until after I took the first sip and read the description that I realized I had assumed completely wrong.
Remember the good ol’ days with this sweet Coffee People K-Cup Donut Shop coffee for Keurig Brewers, medium roast, extra bold, full-bodied all-American classic.
The lid may have thrown me off, but their description was spot on. This coffee reminded me of some of the cups of joes that I’ve had at diners in middle of nowhere New York, minus the sitting on the burner, burnt to the crisp flavor.
This coffee had a likable warm, nutty aroma. There was a sweet twist that almost reminded me of a coffee that already had the cream and sugar added.
The taste was simple, classic and very drinkable. It had a rich, nutty flavor that tasted like a medium roast.
The after taste was a little bit darker.
It can be pretty much summed up as simple, but very drinkable. I could definitely see this as an every day coffee, especially when I’m running late to work and don’t really have time to completely enjoy the coffee.
I liked this coffee, but it was definitely nothing to write home about. It earns an average three out of five rating on the Daily Shot Of Coffee scale.
