Available in 16-count boxes ($11.95), the four coffee varieties include:
- Cafe 63: A smooth, light-bodied roast with fruity aroma that has been a customer favorite since the company opened its first location in 1963.
- Costa Rica: With a balanced, crisp flavor and fragrant aroma, this medium-bodied coffee is sourced from the finest high-altitude farms, where the unique climate and rich soils produce coffees that exhibit a bright, clean taste.
- Viennese Blend: Mellow, smooth, and delicately nuanced with hints of chocolate, this blend draws on a unique Vienna-style of roasting that dates back to 1683 to create a deep brown, medium dark roast.
- Toasted Amaretto: Flavored coffee that boasts the rich and fragrant flavor of almond and creamy liqueur.
Customers who purchase a K-Cup® box at any The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® store will receive a free regular size cup of brewed coffee (terms and conditions apply). All varieties are available at participating locations of The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® and at CoffeeBean.com.
