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

    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.

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

            Brew my 1 cup of Newman's Organic every morning in a Keurig. Use almond milk and Stevia. Delicious! Love the medium/bold flavor. Have noticed a slight quality control issue with the yellow seal since product has changed from the red to the now yellow label. NEVER had problems with the red seal coming lose on old k-cup blend, but have the new yellow seal blend coming off periodically and spraying coffee grounds in and around the coffee cup. What a mess to clean up when needing to scoot out the door to my work. Looks like other people have had the same issue, so I understand what they are going thru. My brewer is 1 year old, so I do NOT believe it's a defective Keurig as Customer Service has advised others. Green Mountain Customer Service: Please investigate this quality control matter further with Newman's Own. It's a delicious coffee, and I don't want to give up brewing the k-cups.

              I did not care for this coffee. It is definitely on the heavy side of a medium roast, which I do not mind. However, I did not care for the heavy smoky like-taste or it's lingering after taste.

                  First time trying this brand. Wanted to try this because the write-up said it was a blend of medium and dark roast coffees. It has a great aroma, but the taste definitely leans more to a dark roast and has a smoky burnt flavor. Very strong even at the large cup setting on my machine. We Will finish off the box, but probably won't buy again.

                          The new yellow top special blend is not as good as the former "red cap " special blend. The boxes are misleading also......they depict red cap special blend on outside only to contain the new yellow cap on the inside.

                                  Newman's own coffee has changed since they are using a new label. The grind size is too small and it clogs up the nozzle of my coffee maker with every cup and grinds come through the filter into the coffee. I called the coffee maker customer service and they told me it is because the grinds are too small. I tried different brands and they work fine. I prefer the taste of Newman's own but now I can't use it.
