Editor's Notes

June 10, 2019:

K Cups are convenient in that they don’t leave any stray beans or grinds on your countertop, and they’re perfect for those who don’t want to brew a full pot. Some java lovers enjoy their favorite drink all day, but prefer to limit their caffeine to just a couple of cups’ worth. The decaf options that made our list are all full of flavor, and some are even indistinguishable in taste to their caffeinated cousins.

Joining the mix in this update is The Organic Co. Gorilla, which is certified USDA organic and grown without chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides. It’s also responsibly shade-grown on bio-diverse farms. It features a unique flavor that’s made up of notes of light citrus and chocolate. It’s made decaffeinated through a natural water process. There’s no plastic to throw away, since the materials are commercially compostable, from the paper lid to the plant-based ring to the mesh filter.

The Original Eight O’Clock Coffee earns its top spot, thanks to its great-tasting 100% Arabica bens, sourced anywhere from Latin America to East Africa. It’s medium-roasted to deliver the same taste and balanced flavor as the company’s original blend, but without giving you the jitters. For a gluten-free, certified Kosher option, look to the Barista Prima Italian, which is deliciously robust with notes of fruit.
