K-Cup Hot Chocolate

Hot Vs. Iced Beverages

 

Now that it’s officially Spring, we must ask the question: do you switch from hot to iced?

Early in the morning, it’s hard enough to choose from all of our varieties we have to offer on greenmountaincoffee.com, but now that it’s getting warmer out, the bigger question is: to ice or not to ice?

Personally, I love a refreshing large glass of Green Mountain Coffee® Nantucket Blend® Iced Coffee K-Cup® Pack or French Vanilla Iced Coffee Vue® pack. The sweetness of the coffee, the coolness of the ice: what’s not to love? I feel completely awake and ready to go after one of those beverages! 

What’s even better is that we can really brew any of our favorite K-Cup® or Vue® packs over ice. Just fill a glass to the top with ice, brew your favorite Keurig Brewed® beverage on your smallest cup size setting, add a little more ice or cream at the end and Voilà! 

Don't get me wrong. There are definitely days when I just need my Celestial Seasonings® Decaf Green Tea or am craving a nice hot mug of Café Escapes® Café Mocha, to handle my chocolate fixation. But, for the most part, when spring and summer are just around the corner, so is my urge to lower that cup size setting and brew myself a tall glass of any Brewed® beverage, over ice! 

Do you have any favorites that you love to 'ice'?

The Sweetest Day of the Year

 

It's that sweet, sweet time of year again! Roses, over-sized stuffed bears holding single roses, and conversation hearts placed into neat little packaging, all ready to be delivered today, because it's VALENTINE'S DAY! So grab your loved ones and celebrate with them, because today is the day of LOVE. 

We are obsessing over this Valentine's Day candy box filled with some of our favorite K-Cup packs! 

Why not save all those calories for a caramel filled chocolate truffle and brew a cup of Donut House Collection® Chocolate Glazed Donut K-Cup® pack instead? Give your honey some chocolate, for goodness sake! 

 

Speaking of caramel, Café Escapes® Café Caramel K-Cup® Pack leaves us drooling, after we get one smell of that buttery, silky, smooth fragrance of pure indulgence. 

 

For those of us that need some chai time, look no further than a Café Escapes® Chai Latte K-Cup® Pack, The perfect marriage of black tea and exotic spices is right inside a cup of this latte. You'll be so relaxed, you'll be ready for a day with the spa, in no time! 

 

We love spoiling our kids on Valentine's Day, too! Share a cup of Swiss Miss® Hot Cocoa with your youngsters as a great after school treat. 

 

How would you pack your candy box full of K-Cup® Packs? 

 

Whatever goodies you may include in your box, we hope your day is filled with love, laughter, and a few chocolates too. 

 

Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!

How Will You Handle The Temptation on National Blueberry Muffin Day?

Celebrate National Blueberry Muffine Day with Wild Mountain Blueberry Coffee

Tomorrow is a holiday dedicated to one of my favorite pastries: National Blueberry Muffin Day! The bad news is this holiday falls right in the middle of swimsuit season, where this treat just isn’t on my breakfast list. If you’re in my boat, we have to wonder: how do we avoid the inevitable temptations of tasty baked goods on this unique national holiday? The answer is simple: flavored coffee. Flavored coffees can satisfy your sweet tooth without the calorie worries, and I’m here to reveal some of my favorite flavors.

First, the classics: Hazelnut and French Vanilla are always delicious. These two flavors are simple and satisfying. Hazelnut, a personal favorite of mine from Green Mountain Coffee®, perfectly embodies the toasted, buttery, hazelnut flavors that everybody loves. French Vanilla is lusciously rich and smooth and captures the flavors of old-time creamy vanilla custard. To sweeten the deal, each K-Cup® pack is calorie-free and guilt-free, so these treats won’t interrupt your summer journey to wellness.

If you want to spice it up a little more, why not drink your favorite treat regret-free? Timothy’s® German Chocolate Cake coffee, Donut House® Cinnamon Roll coffee, Timothy’s® Cinnamon Pastry coffee, and  Donut House® Chocolate Glazed Donut coffee are all to die for! You might think you’re biting into a slice of German chocolate cake or a warm cinnamon roll, but really, you’re drinking a calorie-free and oh-so mouthwatering treat.

Finally, the most appropriate way to celebrate National Blueberry Muffin Day and be proud of your will power is to embrace Green Mountain Coffee® Wild Mountain Blueberry® coffee! You might think blueberry coffee sounds crazy, but after you try it, you’ll fall for the juicy, sweet, oh-so-slightly buttery aroma and the sun-kissed wild blueberry with a hint of caramel flavor. What better way to curb your craving for a blueberry muffin than with a hot cup of Wild Mountain Blueberry® coffee in the morning?

Flavored coffees are my hidden secret this summer. The taste of each flavor makes me feel like I’m eating the treat – no more cravings for me. So this summer, try one of these tasty coffee flavors and celebrate National Blueberry Muffin Day the right way. Branch out on this special day and try a wild flavor like Wild Mountain Blueberry® - who knows, it may be a new favorite.

What is your favorite Hot Cocoa?

Even though the cooler months are coming to an end, a nice mug of Hot Cocoa from our Keurig® brewer can be a warm welcome on a chilly morning or a ray of sunshine on a grey, uninviting day.

When our family comes home from a late afternoon walk and everyone’s hands and noses are a little cold, there isn’t a more comforting feeling than a warm drink in your hands.  Typically, I love sipping on Swiss Miss® Cocoa K-Cup® and Dad likes to sit back with a strong cup of coffee, but on weekend afternoons, the whole family gravitates towards hot cocoa. And every weekend we end up in the same debate: which is the best K-Cup® hot cocoa?

Swiss Miss K-Cup Hot CocoaWe keep a variety of Café Escapes® K-Cup® packs on hand - Milk Chocolate, Dark Chocolate and even Café Mocha for when we need a little extra kick. Now that we’ve discovered the Swiss Miss® Cocoa K-Cup® pack, we keep those stocked up for when the nieces and nephews come over, too!

The kids love the Swiss Miss Hot Cocoa, which is rich and creamy, and Dad goes for the sophisticated flavor of the Cafe Escapes Dark Chocolate. I prefer the Milk Chocolate - classic, sweet, and really decadent!

No matter how long we discuss it, there’s really no way to settle this debate - each flavor has its own appeal. You just have to try them for yourself.

In our family, the best hot cocoa K-Cup® pack is topped with a healthy dollop of whipped cream. I sometimes add extra goodies, like marshmallows, sprinkles, a stick of cinnamon, or a little cocoa sprinkled lightly over everything. Yum!

What we're giving for Valentine's Day this year

Love ballads on the radio, heart shaped cookies at the bakery, and pink and red decorations everywhere. Yes, it’s that time of year again! Single or attached- it’s hard not to like the holiday of love. (Probably because of all the chocolate!) If you’re struggling to find the perfect gift for your Valentine, or you just want to take advantage of all the delicious seasonal goodies, than look no further! Here are our top picks for chocolate day - whoops, we mean Valentine’s Day!

Chocolate Raspberry Truffle Coffee!

Green Mountain Coffee® Chocolate Raspberry Truffle There's something deeply satisfying about the pairing of deep, dark chocolate and raspberries. It’s even more satisfying when you pair it with a bunch of your close girlfriends and a romantic comedy!

Heritage Chocolate Shortbread
 

Heritage Chocolate Dipped Shortbread This sweet, flaky and over-the-top delight proves that you can never have enough of a good thing. Seriously. The 18-ct box may not be enough! But, if you find yourself searching for a richer chocolate experience, sip on Café Escapes® Dark Chocolate Hot Cocoa while you’re snacking.

Golden French Toast Coffee

Green Mountain Coffee® Golden French Toast® Okay, so this isn’t exactly chocolate but it’s seriously delicious so it made it on the list. And because we left nothing out- cinnamon (check), maple aroma (check), buttery goodness (check) - it’s going to smell as incredible as it tastes! If you’re feeling creative, check out Bluebonnets & Brownies’ post for a mouth-watering Blondies recipe using Golden French Toast® K-Cup® packs!

Are you a K-Cup Mixologist?

You know we love to get creative with our coffee. In fact, you know that we know that you love to get creative with your coffee, too. Some days you just feel inspired to mix it up – maybe add a little cinnamon to your Nantucket Blend®, throw a dash of whipped cream in your French Vanilla, or maybe even scoop a little pistachio ice cream into your French Roast. And then there are days that you take a look at your Keurig® brewer and think, “Caramel Vanilla Cream would make a great mocha…” Fast as a flash you’ve brewed a Caramel Vanilla Cream and then a Café Escapes® Dark Chocolate Hot Cocoa into your favorite mug – and with that you’ve just become a K-Cup® mixologist.

Are you a K-Cup® Mixologist?

Here are a few favorite combinations from our team to get your mind perking on the mixing possibilities:

If she likes to entertain, make it easy with our Keurig® K-Cup Carousel or Hot Cocoa K-Cup® Pack Gift.

For the Office:

A gift from our office collection is a perfect way to say “thank you” to everyone who has shared in your business success throughout the year. Chocolate dipped shortbread and biscotti make coffee breaks even sweeter! Thermal mugs keep desk-top coffee warm all morning long. Of course, the best gifts are large enough to share with everyone in the office, so choose from our wide assortment of gift baskets with plenty to go around.

Recipe: Irish Coffee and Mudslide

What would March be without a coffee recipe dedicated to St. Patrick's Day?  Thankfully, our fabulous team at our at our Visitors Center and Cafe in Waterbury, Vermont offered us not one, but two coffee recipes that sing of the Emerald Isle: An Irish Cream and a Mudslide.  Of course, the classic versions of both of these drinks (like this one from our own Doug) involve whiskey or Irish cream, but we thought you'd all appreciate a little non-alcoholic version to share with the family.

Irish Coffee:

  • Brew or pour six ounces of hot, fresh brewed coffee (like Fair Trade Vermont Country Blend) into a large mug

    • Use an Irish coffee glass for a traditional feel


  • Add 1 ½ ounces of your favorite Irish cream syrup, such as Monin, and stir.

  • Add steamed heavy cream until it reaches the top of the mug.

  • Take a sip through the cream, check for a milk mustache, and enjoy!

#3 K-Cup Ultimate Gift Basket $44.95

It’ll be the most memorable Holiday coffee break ever!

#1 Keurig Office Pro Coffee Brewer $129.95

Not only the greatest invention in the history of humankind, but perhaps the greatest gift since frankincense and myrrh. (Gold is still hard to beat.) Even small offices deserve great coffee and the B145 Office Pro delivers. Designed for offices with 15 or fewer people, its small footprint makes it a perfect fit for conference rooms, board rooms and reception areas. Guaranteed to ward off office revolts, palace coups, passive-aggressive behavior and Monday sick days. They should rename it "Ultimate."

Café Express Members, Rejoice! Café Escapes Makes a Comeback for Club Orders!

Back in March, we broke the news to you Café Express members that all four of the items in our Café Escapes® K-Cup® collection could no longer be added to your recurring club orders, due to heavy demand that created serious out of stock issues for us.

Well, as of today, I am happy to report that is not the case any longer:  three of the four Café Escapes products can now be added back to your recurring club orders!  We have plenty of Milk Chocolate Hot Cocoa, Dark Chocolate Hot Cocoa, and Café Mocha on hand and are ready to send them your way.

The one bit of bad news is for all you Chai Latte lovers:  this one is still out of stock, and it looks like it’s going to be a few more weeks before it will be available.  We will certainly keep you posted on this, so watch for future updates to this blog entry.

UPDATE: Hot Cocoa is back!

3/4/2010 Update:  GMC Hot Cocoa and all the Cafe Escapes cocoa items are now available!  Please use the links below.  Thanks.

3/2/2010 Update:  Well, we've got some good news and some bad news.  The good news is that Green Mountain Coffee Hot Cocoa will be available very soon.  We expect to have this available Thursday evening, March 4th.  And we will have a steady supply so that you can feel good about adding this product to your recurring Cafe EXPRESS orders.

As for Cafe Escapes, we will have a limited quantity of all four items available for sale this Thursday evening, March 4th.  Due to the limited quantities, we can NOT let folks add these products to recurring Cafe EXPRESS club orders.  We believe we have only 3 weeks worth of product for all four Cafe Escapes products.  We are VERY sorry about this.  If you enjoy our Cafe Escapes products, please get them now!

2/4/2010 Update:  I am told by our Production folks that we can expect Hot Cocoa products to be available by March 1st.  Wahoo!  A big THANK YOU to all our Hot Cocoa k-cup loyalists who have waited so patiently for these products.

1/20/2010:  It pains me to type this, but I'm afraid all of our Hot Cocoa K-Cup products are out of stock.  Due to incredible demand, we're told we will not have any Hot Cocoa K-Cups to sell from our web site until mid-February (at best).

Let me assure everyone that we are NOT discontinuing these products.  We love these products - and clearly you do, too!

On a personal level, my two kids ask me everyday when I'll be able to bring home some new Hot Cocoa.  Hopefully, in a few weeks, I'll have good news for them and you!

These are the Hot Cocoa K-Cups that are out of stock:

Introducing Café Escapes K-Cups!

UPDATE: We've receive a few questions about what exactly are the Tree Nuts called out on Cafe Escapes K-Cups label.   The tree nut referred to in the ingredient listing is highly refined Coconut Oil. It is so refined that the FDA does not require that it be listed in the nutritional information, but we do, as a precaution.  All of our Café Escapes and Hot Cocoa contain tree nuts in the form of Coconut Oil.  Each of the Hot Cocoa and Café Escapes items we offer have specific nutritional information on our website under “Tasting Notes” on their product page.  The Nutritional label can also be viewed in the product images (under "More Photos"), as well as on the actual box.

UPDATE 3/23/11: The wait is over: Cafe Escapes Chai Latte is back!

We are very proud to announce a new brand to our K-Cup line-up:  Café Escapes.  Café Escapes are an anytime indulgence.  Launching today are Cafe Escapes Dark Chocolate Hot Cocoa and Cafe Escapes Milk Chocolate Hot Cocoa.  Coming soon will be Café Mocha, Chai Latte.

The new hot cocoa k-cups will be available for a limited time only at GreenMountainCoffee.com and Keurig.com.  Also, for now through April 16th, we're offering them at a special low introductory price.

Please give them a try and let us know how you like them, by either replying to this blog post or "write a review" on our site.  Thanks!

Our 100,000th active Cafe EXPRESS member: Miriam Crump

Miriam Krump, 100,000th active Cafe EXPRESS member

We have just reached a wonderful milestone:  100,000 active Cafe EXPRESS members!  Hooray!  At roughly 11am EST on Monday, November 3rd we received a phone call from Miriam Crump of San Angelo, Texas.  Miriam, who absolutely loves her Keurig brewer, decided to get her K-Cups through Cafe EXPRESS.  And with this decision, our Cafe EXPRESS active membership totalled 100,000 for the very first time.  And it continues to grow.

I called and emailed Miriam to ask her why she signed up for Cafe EXPRESS.  She said its because of how much she likes her brewer.  Here's her email reply:

I would like to tell you the story of how I fell in love with the Keurig coffee maker and how I got one of my own.  While on vacation in New York I stayed with a friend who had the Keurig coffee maker.  My husband, daughter and myself were there and we all were very impressed.  It is nice because we all like different hot drinks.  My husband likes regular coffee, I like flavored coffees and my daughter likes flavored teas and hot chocolate.  With the Keurig you make one cup/mug at a time.  It is always hot with great flavor.  There is no coffee grinds or mess involved with the Keurig.  There are a great many choices of regular coffees, flavored coffees as well as all different kinds of teas.  When we came home my daughter asked what I wanted for Christmas.  I told her a Keurig coffee maker.  So I got one for Christmas and we have all been enjoying it ever since.  Thanks for reading my story.  Hope you enjoy!!    Miriam R. Crump
 

Rock on, Miriam!  And welcome to Cafe EXPRESS -- we hope you and your fellow 100,207  members (as of 5:38pm Nov 4th) stay with us for a long time!
