    I like a richer, full-flavor coffee from my Keurig and Victor Allen French Roast is a great choice for me. Best Buy has a nice variety of K-cup coffees and this is one of the best. Just as rich as Starbucks but at a lower cost. I also like the Victor Allen Italian Roast - a little darker but also very good. One tip for those who like more flavor from their K-cups, set the brew size on the smallest cup, brew once, then rotate the K-cup 90 degrees in the holder and brew again, This will release more flavor than running the water through once on the largest cup size. Usually I run the coffee through three times on the smallest cup setting, (rotating the K-cup twice, 120 degrees each time) and that gives a great cup of coffee.

    The honest truth!

    Starbucks is costly! I bought this 80 Box for $20 on sale and in comparison I would say: Pros: cheaper, taste is better then some other generic brands I’ve tried, It won’t hurt your pocketbook, you won’t be buying coffee for awhile. Cons: doesn’t tastes as strong as Starbucks, mostly noticeably for dark roast coffee lovers; you only get a 10-12 cup out of one K-cup; Doesn’t have a rich, aroma taste you get from French Roast. So basically you pay for what you get, just like anything else. Starbucks K-cups I can fill my cup to the top and enjoy the smooth dark roast flavor. So it’s up to you as a consumer— Do you want your Great Tasting Cup of coffee in the morning or do you want a large supply of K-cups?

    Victor Allen's French Roast - Smooth

    Victor Allen's French Roast, Dark Roast, is good smooth coffee and what I expected. Got a great deal on a couple 60-count boxes and wanted to try this brand for the first time. Brewing with our Keurig using the 'Bold' setting provided a nice smooth large cup of coffee, without any burnt flavor. The flavor is good, slightly less bold that Newman's Own...our normal coffee choice. I like the flavor, but my wife might give it 'a little weak' rating. And, no issues with a clogged Keurig as reported by some reviewers. I would buy this product again. I do notice this brand is no longer on the Best Buy website, so I might need to shop around...if we stray from Newman's Own!

    Weak French Roast

    The Deal of the Day price was great. The coffee pods produced weak, watery coffee even with the brew strength set to "strong" and 6 Oz. Cup settings. I expect French Roast to be hearty and smoky and the Victor Allen was like a very light breakfast blend. The expiration date was in the future and other pods tried thereafter, such as Dark Magic or Starbucks French Roast and Sumatra confirmed what hearty dark roasts should taste like. I tried to return the item to Best Buy but was procedurally denied. Discarded the balance. No likey.

    Excellent dark roast

    I only buy dark roast coffee. Most dark roasts taste dark enough for me when doing a 4oz cup of coffee but the cheaper k-cups tend to get too diluted above this level. My favorite dark roasts are dark enough around 6oz. These tend to be more expensive probably because they use more coffee when making the pods. Ultimately, though, I end up making less coffee in the long run. These pods were one of the few that were cheap AND able to be brewed in a 6oz size will still maintaining the darkness of the roast. Thumbs up!

    I am a regular consumer of Victor Allen k-cups and often am on the watch for good deals when it comes to this brand. I looked in a local add over the weekend and saw that my beloved coffee was selling for a price that was almost half of what I would normally purchase it for. I immediately jumped at the deal and was equally elated when I was able to purchase the product online to pick up at the store the next day when the store opened (as it was ll or 12 at night). Wonderful deal on a wonderful product!!

    12.50 with Elite free shipping on Dark Roast, truly is a prefect coffee for the workplace. I like to use one of these and then add another K Cup of the high end and I end up with a nice strong awake feeling. Now quickly grab a calculator and divide 60 K Cups into the 12.50 FLASH SALE price. Mine arrived and expiration was 11/11/2018 with plenty of time to consume. If you have never seen a 4 Hour Flash Sale email, create an online profile today and allow email notifications to come in from Best Buy.

    I’ve been buying the Victor Allen brand coffee pods for awhile now because they are often a “Deal of the Day”. Some may think that because of this, they must be horrible, but I think they taste just fine! This French Roast is my current favorite since it’s a dark roast, but the others like the various medium roasts Victor Allen provides are just as good. Try some. You just may be surprised.

    Got this as deal of the day for about 21 cent per Kcup. Victor allen brand may not be St**B**cks, but at least you're not paying the SB advertising cost. VA is quite good in itself: fresh, aromatic roasted coffee taste. this french roast is robust and somewhat Bold in flavor. I have tried other VA dark roast coffees so i know how good they roast beans. I only buy these when BB has them on sale for less than a quarter per Kcup price. Great flavor , greater value!

    Good French Roast Coffee

    The French Roast is good medium-strong roast coffee. It is not bitter, brews well every time, and has consistent taste. This is our go-to coffee when compared to Newman's Own, having equal or better roast and lower price per cup. We have had no issues with the cups and can only marvel at the Best Buy packaging and early arrival---usually!

    I usually get victor Allen coffee pods whenever they go on sale here but this batch that I bought most recently (I got two boxes, a regular and a decaf) tasted watered down. I used to set my keurig to the large cup brew but now I have to set it on the small cup brew just to get the flavor right. I’ll probably skip the next sale and try this brand again much later.

    Weak taste

    Doesn't taste like French Roast. Not bold or strong, tastes watery, like it's dry/devoid of oils, even when using the Keurig strength setting. Sadly, this is true of anything other than Peets or Starbucks FR. Is it a fresh vs stale thing? (TBH, even Peets and Sbux can be hit or miss within the same box, as if not enough coffee was in the K-cup.). The quest for a 3rd brand continues.

    I have tasted many brands for French Roast and Victor Allen's French Roast is excellent. A good French Roast has to come through with flavor when mixing it with froth and flavoring. Victor Allen's French Roast does this without being overbearing. I make froth with my Nespresso Froth Machine and add cinnamon to taste. Coffee that is as good as any made from a coffee shop at home.

    I enjoyed this coffee for quite some time. I switched to another brand but when I saw the great sale on this box of 60 I ordered them. The order came in very fast however the coffee is not at all as I remembered. I like a dark bolder coffee ( which this used to be) , I don't know if they changed the "recipe " but the brew is very weak and not at all what I enjoy. I will not be buying this again

    French Roast not Dark, but Good

    I ordered the French Roast which I expected to be dark and bold like other brands, but the final result looked like a light roast in my cup. Not what I expected, but the flavor is still great. It's more like a light breakfast roast, but very tasty. I prefer dark, so I won't order it again, but I'm ok with what I got. If you really want bold and dark you might be disappointed.

    I purchased this coffee for a fabulous price. The coffee is a nice bold dark coffee with a smooth taste. There is no bitter after taste. Is it the best coffee I've ever tasted ....no ....but it's definitely do-able...especially for the fantastic deal on it! Definitely worth a try....I don't think you'll be disappointed!

    I was looking for an alternative (cheaper) Kcup to the Tully's French Roast I'm used to and tried this one on a whim since it was one heck of a sale. A French Roast should be a bit more bold/strong than what this delivers. I do use the "stong" setting on my Keurig but it's still weak in comparison. Back to Tully's Frech Roash I go... c'est la vie.
