Tasting Notes

Bold yet refined. Strong yet smooth. A study in contradiction, or a reflection of the man for whom it was created? Maybe both. This inspired blend of medium-roasted Central American coffees and darker-roasted Indonesians is rich, robust, and satisfying, with ample body to stand up to all the cream and sugar that you might want to add to the party.

"For fans of both dark and light roasts." – Lindsey Bolger, Director of Coffee Sourcing and Relationships

Rating: 85 Points (out of 100)
"Very mild, sweet, smokily cedar-toned aroma. In the cup simple, relatively rich for a K-cup brewed coffee, with dried fruit notes–raisins, cherries–that verge on dark chocolate. Sweet, mildly astringent finish."
– Ken Davids, CoffeeReview.com, March 2006

        Was great, tasty, flavorful. As others have said, now (6/2014), it tastes like hot water with milk. Will be removing from my club, contemplating canceling my accout.
        GM, did you think no one would notice?

        This previously was my favorite k-cup.
        Now there is a smoky after taste which reminds me of cigarettes. Please, let's bring back the good stuff.

        What did newmans do to their extra bold!

        By Rick

        from Orlando fl

        Comments about Newmans Own Coffee K-Cup Newman's Own Special Blend:

        I can't believe this I have been drinking the newmans extra bold since I went to kuerig 5 years ago and it's the only one I buy. I just bought 7 boxes on sale and opened to find that the packaging color has changed to gray and red and It tastes weak and bad. Won't buy anymore unless it goes back to what it was. Super bad move on their part!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        Now I have to search for another flavorful kup as most are weak and flavorless unless you make it with only 3 oz water.

          I have drank Newman's Own Organic Special Blend for over a year and loved it (8-10 cups per day). I recently purchased my usual 2 -80 count cases and when I opened box I notice that the usual tan tops on k-cups was changed to red. I brewed a cup and it tasted like tree bark. I will be returning unopened box for a refund!

              I bought this coffee exclusively for 3 years. It used to be great! They changed it and now it is bad, brown water.

              I will not buy this anymore. Very dissapointed.

                I noticed with the new packaging of this coffee that it was much weaker and had noticeably less flavor than before. It was a BIG disappointment. Apparently they are putting less coffee in each K cup. I will not buy it anymore.

                  Comments about Newmans Own Coffee K-Cup Newman's Own Special Blend:

                  I started uning Starbucks House Blend K-cups and today bought this one because it says "Strong" and "Extra Bold". I made the SAME 10 oz cup and it tasted bland and weak. I looked at contents size to see how much coffee is in each K-Cup. For Newman's it was 4.0 oz; for SB 4.2 oz. That must be the reason. Yes, I could make a smaller cup but that costs more "per cup". I guess we now have the "shrinking K-Cup Contents". They can't shrink the cup, but they can with the contents.
