Cross Country Cafe K-Cups Review and Giveaway

If you have been following my blog for any amount of time, you know how much I love coffee and my Keurig.  Keep in mind that not just any old coffee will do.  In my house, it is, let's just say necessary, to have a great (not a good) but a great cup of coffee. Enter Cross Country Cafe. All me to introduce Cross Country Cafe to you.  Here is a bit of information about them from their website:

"We are a family-owned business who delivers personal, friendly customer service. We have established a stellar reputation for putting our customers first. It's our belief and focus to deliver our customers the quality products their hard earned money deserves.

We're here to help round out a small, select few National Authorized Distributors offer Keurig products. Working with customers access the nation requires: Integrity, responsibility, and loyalty to the customer. Legitmacy and dependability are the backbone to a sound business structure. We are a company that thirsts for excellence in the same way you thirst for your morning coffee."

Two things that I love about Cross Country Cafe is that they are a family-owned business and they recognize that legitimacy and dependability is the backbone of their business structure.  They realize how hard it is to come by our money.

For my review I was allowed to choose four boxes of KCups.  I chose the Green Mountain Double Black Diamond, Caribou ColombianWolfgang Puck Breakfast in Bed, and KAHLÚA® Original {Each box retails for $12.95 for 24 cups}.

Green Mountain's Double Black Diamond definitely lives up to it's name.  It is Green Mountain's darkest Extra Bold.  If you need a wake up call in the morning, this is your cup of coffee.  Ken Davids from CoffeeReview.com {March, 2008} says its "Delicate, gently exotic, faintly smoky, with cocoa, cedar, floral and caramel notes in both aroma and cup. Lightly syrupy and bittersweet in structure. The short finish is sweet and cocoa-toned, the long mildly astringent." Double Black Diamond is number one in my husband's book.

Caribou is one of my favorite coffees.  I have purchased Caribou in my local grocery store to brew it in my coffee maker so I knew that it was really good coffee.  The Colombian blend is really smooth and has a wonderful flavor of caramel.  Caribou Colombian is Rainforest Alliance Certified and has won the Rainforest Alliance Corporate Green Globe Award. 

Of course, we all have heard of Wolfgang Puck, but I have never tried his coffee before so I was anxious to dive right in. The Breakfast in Bed coffee is perfect for that first morning cup of coffee if you like smooth medium bodied coffee.  I am in love with this coffee.  I usually like to add variety to  my coffee routine in the mornings, but I have found myself reaching morning after morning for Breakfast in Bed.  

Kahlua is definitely  my favorite after meal coffee.  This coffee features notes of rum, vanilla and caramel, wrapped in roasted coffee flavor from Arabica beans that are hand picked. Kahlua is both rich and smooth.  It has a distinct taste all of its own. 

I am extremely pleased with my selections that I choose from Cross Country Cafe.  They have a wide variety of K-Cups to choose from and their prices are very competitive.  I am so glad that I found Cross Country Cafe because I had been long looking for a place to purchase my K-Cups from and around my house if we are out of K-Cups, we have some very unhappy parents. 

Cross Country Cafe not only has K-Cups but they also sell Keurig Brewers. Right now if you purchase your brewer from them, you will receive a box of K-Cups for free.  And just look at some of the brands that you can get from Cross Country Cafe.

A huge thank you to Cross Country Cafe for allowing me to review the coffee that I selected as well as using their website.  You can connect with Cross Country Cafe on Facebook,Twitter and their blog
