[Costco] Costco West now has Pacific Bold K Cups 34 cents a pod

I was just at Costco and to my delight they are now selling Pacific Bold Dark Roast Coffee Extra Bold for $36.99 per box for 110 K Cups. A very decent cup of coffee for this price in my opinion, way better than their Breakfast Blend. I have been getting these in USA for the past few years and had emailed them and they replied they had no plan of bringing these to Canada so was surprised to see them.

They are also online for 2 boxes for $78.99

Dark roasted for the perfect balance of smoky and sweet, this robust brew lives up to its name. Intense, invigorating, but surprisingly smooth, Pacific Bold is an exhilarating experience for those who like coffee with a little attitude.
This description is promising way more than I would expect from a K-cup.

OP, how exhilarated are you each morning?

(But seriously, if I had a Keurig, I'd give this a shot on your recommendation alone)

Their "Breakfast" k-cups are very weak and very watery.

I'll give these ones a try when I run out of the brown water.

One thing I do not like about the breakfast ones, are how difficult it is to remove the paper lining for recycling. Most other coffee pods tear away clean so it's just plastic remaining. These ones there's a 1/2 cm edge of paper remaining on the plastic.

I don't mind their breakfast flavour at all!

For the convenience 36 cents a cup isn't too bad. Might pick up a box......hope it's as advertised and produces a bold flavour

The Pacific Bold K Cups are the same, removing the paper filter or even the foil from the cup is near impossible. You'd probably have to crush the edge to break the seal to have a fighting chance.

The flavour is very strong, as black of a coffee as you can get, more similar to say a 'Bold' Starbucks coffee than a 'Dark Roast' from Tim Hortons. If you've ever had dark roast coffee from a french press they're similar. First time around, I tried filling a 16oz Thermos using two capsules at 6oz & 4oz settings, the coffee was super strong. Granted, when you drink coffee black, I guess that does not help.

You might be surprised, it's definitely dark enough for coffee lovers. Might give them a stroke or two :P

You can fill a 16oz Thermos with one capsule, still stronger than the breakfast blend (2x). Though, if you add milk, cream, etc., you'll need two and it takes the edge out of the coffee.

Try to get some from either friends, family, and coworkers. Strong yes, coffee as black as your soul probably Grinning Face With Smiling Eyes

Sounds promising. 1.27 kg for 110 pods is still only 11.5 grams per pod (Barista Prima is something like 13.5), but the price is good if it tastes OK. Most are around 10-10.5 g/pod I think.

At an 18:1 ratio one pod should make about 210 ml (7 oz). Could stretch that to 8 I expect.
