    Not enough seal used in my box of kcups

    Posted
    CliClo

    Coffee doesn't taste bad for the 5 cups I've been able to drink. Unfortunately, the adhesive used to seal the tops of the kcup is inconsistent or weak. This has caused several kcups to overflow the sides and makes a coffee grind mess on my Keurig and kitchen counter. I've included a picture of the typical bad kcup. We purchased a batch of Kona from the same manufacturer and that case has been perfectly fine so far, so I chalk this up to spotty QC process on the assembly line. I used a piece of masking tape to secure down the lid of the Donut Shop blend now before I make a cup of coffee. Not ideal, but at least I found a use for the 10+ year old roll of masking tape in my house! Still a good price, but caveat emptor!

    Doesn't taste right

    I purchased this based on price (only $.21 a cup) and great reviews. This is the second variety of this brand I've purchased (Columbian and Donut Shop). I am NOT a coffee snob and just like a good basic cup of coffee. For reference, I normally drink Gevalia, McCafe, or The Original Donut Shop brand coffee. The Victor Allen's flavors I purchased just don't have good flavor. I normally brew on the largest cup setting, and this coffee tastes very watered down when doing that. However, I tried brewing on the normal cup size setting and it still has an odd taste. With enough sugar and creamer, it's drinkable, but not something I'll buy again, even at 50% off.

    Pods Explode!

    The coffee is okay to drink but 9 out of 10 times the pods exploded in my Keurig. From what we have experienced this only happened with the Donut Shop Blend. My husband prefers a lighter blend so we recently tried the Morning Blend and so far so good. No explosions. It was a disaster to clean. I didn't want to throw them all away and my $$$ with it so each time I hoped it would make a "clean" cup. Unfortunately I did lose out because I didn't get my money's worth. I would like to believe this was just a manufacturing error since I didn't have this issue prior to our last purchase.

    Watery, weak coffee

    This coffee is terrible and wouldn't recommend it to anyone. It makes a very weak cup of coffee, and even brewing it to 6 ounces and on a strong setting gives what resembles burnt water. I'm pretty sure the price is so low because they use much less coffee than their competitors. By all means, try it yourself, but you're much better off buying a different brand. There's a reason this coffee is so cheap.

    It’s weird BB has basically become my go-to retailer for coffee cups (versus a grocery store, amazon, other). When these are on sale for Best Buy’s deal of the day I typically buy and ‘pantry stock’. Donut Shop is my favorite flavor, so for deal price and free shipping these are a no brainer. Coffee tastes great either black or with creamer. I’ve used basically all flavors of Bliss or CoffeeMate creamer with these Victor Allen k cups and I’m satisfied every time.

    A Very Good Medium-Roast Coffee

    I grew up with Folger's, Maxwell House, and Hills Bothers coffee out of an actual coffee can and that's still what I prefer. Best Buy had this 60-ct box of Victor Allen's coffee on clearance so I took a chance as it said it was "medium roast", which is what I prefer. It reminds me a lot of the kind of coffee I grew up with so I can heartily recommend this if that's the sort of coffee you like as well. It was a steal at the price I paid and I enjoy it every time!!!

    I purchased this coffee when it was on sale. I bought based on some of the other positive reviews. The first coup that I made lacked flavor, so I went for a second cup the next day. I put it on the "Strong" setting thinking this would make up for it, but I was wrong. The coffee tastes very watered down, and it still lacked flavor. I guess I'll just have to go with the reusable cup and use my own coffee. I'd look for something other than this coffee.

    Need a "buy again" button...

    We go through a lot of coffee in my house. These 80 packs are inexpensive and last us a while. I just wish there was a "buy it again" button for one click ordering. Takes 2 days to arrive once ordered and we get reward points too. The coffee tastes like any other house brand coffee. We have been buying this exact brand at Ollies and Big Lots for years. Since I found it on Bestbuy.com. I just have it delivered now.

    I bought this coffee while it was on sale. I though that I would give it a try, thinking that it would have at least a decent taste, but I was wrong. I know that Keurigs lack taste as it is, but even on the smallest cup setting I couldn't get much flavor out of this coffee. I think I will just go with something else next time. I wouldn't recommend these.

    Great tasting coffee from my Keurig

    This was the first time I had ever tried that brand of coffee, it was on sale and I liked the reviews I read about it. I have never been a person who likes strong coffee so this coffee is one of the best in being very light tasting. I also use flavored coffee creamers in my coffee daily, I am happy since I no longer have to leave my house to get a good cup of coffee. I use this brand in my Keurig and it comes out perfect.

    I purchased this because it was on sale, not sure of what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised. It has a great flavor, if I was comparing it to something I would say its close to the dunkin donuts coffee shop kcups. When this is on sale its a great buy, I'll definitely be purchasing again in the future.

    Been using Keurig style pods for many years. Never saw a better price then these. Found out why at the first use. The coffee is so weak on the middle size setting I tried the lowest cup size and it was still like slightly brown water. Finally had to use 2 pods per cup, and shut it off as soon as the stream got watery looking. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY

    I am not sure what universe this "coffee" powder comes from or what type of Beings collect it and put it into these little cups with flexible covers, but dang it if it is not the best filter to put water through. The water ends up a lot darker, but it tastes really good and I feel like I am more awake! I really do not think I could survive a day with out it!!

    I have been very happy with my recent purchase of Victor Allen's Donut Shop Blend K cups. The flavor of the coffee is very good and I feel that the purchase was a good value, both in price and quality. Best Buy has become my go to place for K cup purchases.

    good value for the price..not the best cup of coffee but certainly not the worst. Using it in a Keurig so it's fine. If you are a coffee snob I doubt you care about using a keurig, they deliver ok coffee at best anyway, so why pay a premium for k cups? Just get good value for your funds which is why this is fine..

    Mom-in-law enjoys this coffee flavor and roast. Who am I to argue with her! She says "The flavor is smooth and distinct, the roast not too strong." In addition, the coffee arrived in great condition, the packaging done very well. The cups have a late 2019 Best if Used By date.

    Superb deal on the Victor Allen K-cup 60 count Donut shop blend variety. Purchased these to re-supply our single cup coffee usage. Medium blend but flavorful enough to satisfy our morning joe requirement. Purchased with Colombian and French Roast flavors to allow for multiple choices along with our other stored k-cup flavored varieties.

    I tried this coffee a couple of years ago mostly because of it's price. I was surprised that I liked the flavor so much, it's just about the only brand I purchase anymore. For K-Cup pods it's very reasonable and surprising that I can find just about the best deal on it at Best Buy of all places.

    First of all, K cups are a great way to get your coffee in the morning. I was looking for deals on coffee when this flash sale came through Best Buy. I couldn't beat the price and ordered a few boxes. These flavors have been enjoyed by both myself and my wife. Thank you Best Buy for great deals and very fast shipping.
