Tully's French Roast K-Cups and Variety Pack

So I recently ordered up a variety box of Tully's K-Cups, and thought I would take a quick tour of what they offered an espresso drinker for flavor and body. Long time readers know that we've recently adopted a Keurig B-70 into our house and for us, it's allowed everyone in the household to get a cup of what they want. After a few months we're still enjoying it and the happiness is palpable. The Tully's variety pack comes with a healthy caffeinated mixture of roasts: House Blend, Tully’s Full City Roast, French Roast, Breakfast Blend and Kona Blend. All are extra bold K-Cups, which have an extra boost of ground coffee in the K-Cup.

After drinking all of these for a few weeks, I have come around to the roast color as a pretty good indicator of what I like. The House, Kona, and Breakfast blends wee just too lightly roasted to jump out of the cup at me. Obviously the French Roast is a dark roast, and apparently the Full City roast is a "dark" roast. If they are sticking to their true roasting designators, the Full City is a couple of stages short of the French Roast typical color.... and it shows. For me, the Full city is a little light and not as bold as the French Roast in either flavor or body. The French Roast has a nice rounds smokiness without being to acidic or sour. It's not too bitter either. I will say that the blending on all of these are good, and nothing stands out as out of balance.

So, If you are looking for a fun experiment in extra Bold K-Cups, check out Tully's, and see what you like. If you are really interested in a darker, bolder flavor, jump to the French Roast.
