Did you hear that the Timothy’s brand is being discontinued in the U.S.? This is probably more captivating than any of my five reviews, but hang in there (or skip to the end if you really can’t wait).
I got the Nicaraguan K-Cup in a sample pack from kcuptrade.com. This is the mug I used. My family and I went yard saling so I needed coffee to-go.
Timothy’s Nicaraguan has a unique flavor. Smoky is the best way to describe it. Not bad if you’re wanting a change of pace. It says Extra Bold, but I thought it was fairly mellow. I wouldn’t want to have it every day, but it was interesting.
By the way, it was a good yard sale day! Liz & Co. purse for a buck, Cars toys for the kids…
A note on Timothy’s: the quality definitely varies from K-Cup to K-Cup. The Nicaraguan was a good one; San Lorenzo Dark, not so much (I couldn’t taste the coffee). You know how I feel about Timothy’s Cinnamon Pastry (perfection!).
Further rundown: Timothy’s Decaf Columbian is a basic medium roast with an okay flavor. It doesn’t taste too much like a decaf which is a good thing. It’s also better iced than hot. Timothy’s Italian is smooth, basic, and boring–not like an Italian roast at all. It has a decent flavor and is better than most breakfast blends but otherwise not too exciting.
If you follow @Shoffee_Joe, you know that Timothy’s brand K-Cups are set to be discontinued in the U.S. on September 9th. Shoffee advises that you stock up, especially on a handful of K-Cup flavors that will be “irreplaceable” in terms of finding another K-Cup to match. The list includes German Chocolate Cake. Check out their blog for more info. There’s also a survival guide for finding alternative K-Cups to replace certain Timothy’s K-Cups. One suggestion is Tully’s House Blend for Timothy’s Nicaraguan (silly). I would say Green Mountain Kenya AA would be a better option.
