“It’s okay” is probably the most positive thing I can say about Timothy’s German Chocolate Cake. The flavors are pretty subtle. I had a hard time detecting the chocolate. The aftertaste is not too strong (yay!) which is a difference between many flavored coffees–it’s still not a great aftertaste though.
I do like the smoothness and hints of coconut. The aroma is very mellow. This is the favorite K-Cup of the wife of a kcuptrade.com trader, so there are those out there with fonder feelings toward it. I personally wouldn’t get it again, but I’m glad to have my curiosity appeased.
I wonder if more people would convert to flavored K-Cups if they were available in dark roasts. It seems like most are light roast. The German Chocolate Cake is medium (seemed more like light roast to me).
The Extra Bold Hazelnut by Green Mountain was discontinued so maybe most flavored coffee drinkers tend to be medium or light roast drinkers. Hmmm. If you’d like to sample it, there are a few up for trade right now at kcuptrade.com (maybe not for long though).
Next on my list of flavored K-Cups to try are Green Mountain Island Coconut and Timothy’s Sugar Bush Maple. I’ve heard good things.
