My daughter and I are coffee lovers. We make a full pot first thing in the morning and fill our coffee cups to the brim (need at least one cup of coffee to get dressed and do makeup) followed by a full thermos to make the drive to work. I make sure I take enough coffee with me to last the morning wherever I go. After lunch, it’s ice coffee for the both of us. We’re constantly debating over which brand or coffee shop has the best coffee, so I gladly jumped at the opportunity to review Brûlerie FARO Keurig coffee pods.
The coffee was generously provided by JavaFly, a community of coffee lovers headquartered in upstate New York and who are dedicated to sharing their love of coffee with the world. According to its website, JavaFly offers K-cups, capsules, and coffee pods at unbeatable prices. Brûlerie FARO is a coffee roasting house located in Canada. It offers a wide variety of coffees. I received two flavors of Brûlerie FARO Keurig coffee pods: the Colombian Zelandia Bold and the Italian Blend (medium).
My daughter, sister-in-law and I compared the Colombian Zelandia Bold to the Italian Blend. We found the Colombian coffee to be bold, strong, and quite fragrant. The coffee is dark and robust and ever so slightly bitter—as you would expect to taste in a dark roast. The coffee is strong but enjoyable, especially first thing in the morning. The three of us enjoyed it.
The Italian Blend is a medium blend. The Brûlerie FARO tasting notes claim the coffee is usually blended for espresso, but I found it to be milder than the Colombian Zelandia Bold coffee and most espresso brands that I’ve tried. It too is strong, dark, and robust, yet it’s smooth and leaves behind not a hint of bitterness. The three of us agreed that the Italian Blend is our favorite of the two but both blends are enjoyable.
I was provided coffee samples in exchange for an honest review. All opinions and thoughts are my own.
