Nerd Fuel: Donut Shop – Honey Bun

During my recent trek to find new K-Cup varieties, I came across a new Donut Shop flavor that I had never seen before; honey bun. Now, it’s no secret that plain Donut Shop is one of my all time favorite K-Cups. Also, of their flavored offerings that I’ve encountered thus far, only one failed to …

Nerd Fuel: Community Coffee – Founder’s Blend

Recently I complained about the lack of new coffee options at my local grocery store. This led me to venture out of town in search of some new varieties to sample. As a result of my efforts, I have found a number of new (at least to me) and exciting flavors and blends to share …

Nerd Fuel: Folgers 1850 – Pioneer Blend

Maybe I’ve never come right out and said it. But, generally speaking, I don’t usually enjoy your run-of-the-mill everyday coffee. I’m talking about your standard mass-market grocery store coffee; Folgers, Maxwell House, Hills Bros, etc. To me, most of them taste pretty much the same. They’re not bad, but they’re not particularly good either. They …

Nerd Fuel: Mystic Monk Coffee – Snickering Monk Candy Bar

In my quest to sample a wide variety of K-Cups, I occasionally come across some rather obscure coffees. A good example would be the Butter Moon variety by Ugly Mug Coffee – I’ve never seen it on the shelf since the fateful day I discovered it. Ugly Mug is a little known company, but one …

Nerd Fuel: Barnie’s – Barnie’s Cafe Blend

The quest for the perfect coffee continues. It seems like one of the biggest problems I have with finding new coffees to try is variety. So, for this Nerd Fuel entry, I decided to take my coffee shopping out of town. Instead of my local Wal-Mart, I hopped one town over to the nearest Publix …

Nerd Fuel – Starbucks – 2018 Holiday Blend

Merry Christmas! I just couldn’t let the Christmas season come and go without sampling some kind of seasonal coffee. Usually, there’s any number of holiday varieties available on the store shelves – gingerbread, peppermint, etc. But this year, I found the options at my local grocer to be rather slim. But at least they did …

Nerd Fuel: Donut Shop – Chocolate Glazed Donut

It’s been several months since I sat down and did a new coffee review. To be honest, that’s been mainly due to two reasons. First, I have a new work schedule that’s been highly unusual. Currently, I find myself waking up around three-thirty in the morning and heading to bed around eight in the evening. …

Nerd Fuel: Green Mountain – Breakfast Blend

It has been a few months since I posted a Nerd Fuel review. So this time, I decided to go back to basics. No fancy foreign coffees, no seasonal blends, etc. I just wanted to try something simple. This morning I took a trip to the local grocery store and picked up one of those …

Nerd Fuel: Tim Horton’s – Original Blend

It has been a few months since I made a Nerd Fuel post. To be honest, my post frequency on the site has been down considerably since the start of the year. I’ve been spending every last free minute grinding away at Xenogears. (A behemoth of a game.) I finally completed the title today (a …

Nerd Fuel: Laughing Man – Hugh’s Blend

My favorite thing about reviewing coffee is seeking out and trying new flavors and varieties. A while back I reviewed a number of coffees by Hugh Jackman’s Laughing Man coffee company. Well, he’s back with a new offering; Hugh’s Blend. I came across a box a couple weeks ago during a shopping trip with my …
