This is my first K-Cup review and today I am going to highlight my favorite daily drinker, Double Black Diamond by Green Mountain Coffee.
When I use the Keurig machine this is my “go to” K-Cup. I like a very dark, very bold coffee and over all the Double Black Diamond delivers. Its a very rich blend that is perfect in the 6oz size and even holds true to the 8oz cup size.
Flavour: Rich and earthly while not too bitter, this is a very dark roast that mixes well with only a little sweetener and can take a fair bit of cream while still maintaing good color. I give it a 9/10 rating for flavour
Strength: Using the 6oz setting will make very strong cup of coffee and even at 8oz this can still be considered to be full flavour and not watery. Double black Diamond is definitely one of the strongest K-Cups I’ve encountered. I give it 8/10 for strength.
Texture: Using the 6oz setting will yield a very smooth, rich and dense texture. The colour is almost totally black and amber ”creama” foam will linger for a while offering the impression of a good espresso blend. With an 8oz setting the coffee will be noticeably weaker as it pours from the machine near the end of the cycle and as a result the colour will be a little more translucent and the texture will likewise be a touch more watery. I give it a 8/10 for texture.
Over all this is a personal favourite. In fact, after trying about 20 different k-Cups, this is one of the few I keep coming back to day after day. Overall rating is 8.5/10
