The theme of this K-cup originates from the opening of Starbucks ‘ first store in 1971 at Pike Place, Seattle. This medium roast coffee is softly acidic, smooth-bodied, and has tasting notes of cocoa and toasted nuts. The taste is very well balanced and has a smooth mouthfeel.

This blend is very much closer to the coffee being served at Starbucks and now you can taste it with your Keurig brewer at home.

Don’t worry if you are looking for decaf K-cups, Starbucks has those too. There is a decaf variant of Pike Place, it tastes amazing and is very much similar to the actual caffeinated version.

As per the name, this coffee is an amazing morning companion. It has citrus notes that dance around your tongue making your morning brighter and lively. This is a medium roasted coffee so expect them to be smooth and balanced full of tasteful flavors.

The breakfast blend by Starbucks will have hints of sweet orange and brown sugar. For a small kick of caffeine in the morning, this one is highly suggested.

If you are looking for something that is not very strong nor much weaker, Veranda Blonde can be your perfect pick. It’s a light roast blend with no bitterness and has a smooth texture. They’re subtle and soft with mellow acidity, tasting notes of toasted malt and baking chocolate with a mellow taste.

This Veranda blend is going to wake you up gently. Very flavorful and not overly bold!

4. Sumatra Dark Roast

Sumatra is for those who are in love with bold flavors and have a soft side for single-origin coffee. The resulting coffee is full-bodied and has a bold taste. The tasting notes are intense and smoky with flavors of earthy aroma and some lingering low notes. Being dark roast, don’t expect it to taste much bitter.

If you feel lazy in the morning, this bold flavor k-cup is going to wake you up with a kick with its robust bold taste. It’s a French roast, and so the darkest roast by the brand.

5. Dark Roast with 2X Caffeine

Now, this is again a dark roast blend with intense, bold, and smoky taste made from high-quality 100% Arabica beans. Though it’s a dark roast, it won’t taste bad bitter. If you like an extra-strong cup of coffee with a high caffeine kick, this one is for you.

The last one was simply a dark roast blend whereas this one has double the caffeine dose. Though the pods have controlled levels, still, if you have never tried strong coffee, we suggest trying simply the dark roast. If that doesn’t satisfy you with its bold taste, try this one.

6. Caramel Flavored K-Cups

Many among us have a soft side for caramel flavor and anything in that flavor becomes our favorite. The same is applicable here and there are many people who love the touch of caramel in their cup of coffee.

If you have sweet cravings for buttery caramel flavor, this one is waiting for you. one more good thing is that the flavoring is natural and not artificial, which is much safer and good to use.

7. Caffe Verona

Our next one is again for the bold coffee lovers. This variation was first created exclusively for one of Seattle’s restaurants. People fall in love with it and it got immense popularity. After that Starbucks started making it an 80/20 recipe for their own stores. After that, it was released officially with the name of the city that inspires, ‘Verona’.

Caffe Verona is a dark roast blend with tasting notes of Dark Cocoa. It’s a dark roast and hence full-bodied with a well-balanced texture. Your cup of coffee is going to be bold and robust.

8. Starbucks Cinnamon Dolce Flavored K Cups

For those who love the aroma of Cinnamon, this one is for you. It is a light roast blend filled with the natural flavor of cinnamon. The flavoring notes are obviously cinnamon and brown sugar. It’s lighter bodied and so it wakes you up gently.
