Suggested retail price for a 12 pack of capsules is $9.95. Available in a range of roasts and strengths, including:
- Espresso: Characteristic of an Italian style espresso, this dark roasted coffee features a rich flavor and slight sweetness at the first sip. Elegantly balanced with a strong, intense, full-bodied flavor.
- Colombian Single Origin: Transport yourself to the South American hilltops with each sip. Offers a light and fruity taste for a delicious, smooth cup.
- Decaf: Decaffeinated naturally by using the Water Decaffeination process, yet retains a rich, syrupy sweetness at first taste before tapering to a clean, crisp, flavorsome cup.
- Latte: An intense coffee with full, rich flavor, and a spicy aftertaste that still delivers a full-bodied taste when enjoyed with milk.
- Brazilian Breakfast Blend: Light in body with a crisp and delicate acidity, this blend delivers a smooth finish with rich crème. Can be enjoyed as an espresso or with milk.
- Organic: This medium dark roast combines 100 percent Certified Organic Arabica beans sourced from Rainforest Alliance Certified farms. The well-balanced espresso delivers a sweet and nutty aftertaste when enjoyed with milk.
