Nothing beats fresh ground coffee

By 

from Maple Shade, NJ

Comments about Caribou Coffee:

I love a good cup of coffee. I love it even more when it is freshly ground right before I make a pot. Caribou is fresh and light and provides me with all the caffeine I need to make it through my long none-stop days without giving me a case of the jitters. It is smooth and enjoyable. Finding a good brand of coffee can be some-what challenging for me, the majority of what is out there can give me rather nasty heartburn, But Not Caribou whole bean or pre-ground. The whole bean in my opinion makes it all the more smoothly balanced.

The flavor is amazing

By 

from Midland, TX

Comments about Caribou Coffee:

The flavor of this coffe is amazing...I recommend when you first buy this brand to try the Caribou Blend. It has fruit and chocolate tones and is so yummy! I do agree that it beats Starbucks coffee. I look foward to making this coffee every morning...something that gets me outta bed. If I don't finish the entire pot of coffee, then I put the pot in my ice box and drink it later in the day when its cold. The coffee taste great cold with cream with out a  speacial trip to the coffe shop. This is the highest-quality coffe that I have tried so far so I diffenitly recommend you give it a try.

Caribou Coffee is the best mainstream coffee chain

By 

from Canton, MI

Comments about Caribou Coffee:

I am a picky coffee drinker and I find that the best coffee is the coffee I make at home or find in a more homespun/local coffee shop. But, if I need a coffee on the go and a Caribou Coffee is around: I am very happy.  Caribou Coffee has good coffee (from there blends of regular coffee to their specialt drinks).  I love that they do not have flavored blends, since flavored blends can be very artificial tasting.  The blends I enjoy is the Daybreak and the Peaberry.  The blends are very smooth and more high quality than Starbucks.  I enjoy that they have free wi-fi in there stores.  Their specialty drinks are great too.  They can be very sweet...but I kind of like sweeter drinks if I am in the mood. Also, I love the ambiance.  The rustic/cabin look is comforting when it's cold outside. Caribou coffee is a great place to get a cup of joe. Also, sign up for their emails and you could find some great deals (right now they offer great specials on Mondays).

Caribou Coffee is a good way to wake up.

By 

from Kansas City, MO

Comments about Caribou Coffee:

I am a true coffee drinker. When I say that I mean that it's the first thing I look for in the morning and I don't want to start a day without it. I make coffee at home, but I prefer to just grab one at my local coffee shop or gas station. The first time I tried Caribou Coffee I was in Minnesota. I assumed it was something original to the state since I couldn't remember seeing the business before or hearing about it. I had a latte and happily enjoyed it while I walked around the Mall of America. I've been a loyal Starbuck's customer for years, but I was more impressed by Caribou Coffee. The coffee they make is a very high quality, I felt their service was better than Starbuck's, and they have a large selection of coffees. I HAVE to have a big menu to choose from because I'm constantly trying new kinds of coffee. They are also much cheaper than Starbuck's. I was thrilled to figure out that I did have some local locations in Missouri. I've since spent most of my coffee money at Caribou Coffee and I'd still say that they are better than Starbuck's.

Caribou Coffee fooled my husband!

By 

from Myrtle Point, OR

Comments about Caribou Coffee:

I had some coupons for Caribou Coffee so I thought I would try it. When we ran out of his favorite brand he annouced "We are out of Coffee" I said no we weren't he stomped off to bed. I smiled an said " It's OK , I have an extra can". i went to the pantry and opened a new bag of Caribou Coffee and dumped it into the old container. He has to get up early so I didn't mention the coffee. That next weekend I poured my husband his coffee and didn't say anything until he asked me if I had bought a different blend of his favorite coffee. I smiled and didn't say a word I have been buying Caribou Coffee whenever I can get coupons for it and I have been saving money and I only recently told my husband it was not his usual blend.

A month or so later I bought his old brand of coffee and put it into the same can as all the others. I poured him a cup of coffee and he surprised me when he noticed a change in the flavor. He asked if I changed his coffee again I said I had he said "switch back" . So Caribou Coffee is now his favorite !

Thanks caribou Coffee ... send out more coupons

Great flavor, balanced coffee

By 

from Mercer Island, WA

Comments about Caribou Coffee:

I first had this coffee on Frontier Airlines. It was so good, not acidic, nor bitter, with a good coffee flavor. I immediately had to buy it when I returned home from my trip. Of course, the store had many varieties to choose from, and it took me a few tries to get the correct balance of flavors to my liking. I've found that the Caribou Blend is probably the best and most balanced flavor. Since this coffee is not over roasted, (like Starbucks), the lighter blends are actually a little too light in flavor. It helps that the Caribou Coffee bags in the stores show a roast-meter, telling you how the flavor and roast will be. I find this feature of the bags to be very helpful in finding the right flavor.

the best cofee I've ever had

By 

from Mont Alto, PA

Comments about Caribou Coffee:

 I am a coffee snob/lover living with another coffee snob/ lover. I do not drink instant coffee or store brands. I am picky about my creamer,my sweetener,and especially my beans! We usually buy Starbucks to brew at home because of it's rich flavor. I have tried many other gourmet brands. Caribou is the best hands down. The pre-ground beans taste better than other brands I've ground fresh right before I've brewed.The flavor is rich and robust without being overpowering. There is no over-roasted aftertaste like you get sometimes with Starbucks. I was really surprised I hadn't heard about it before. I have no idea why it's not why it's not more popular than it is. I absolutley love this coffee. When I switched, I didn't tell my teenaged daughter. When she drank the first sip she exclaimed, "wow!". Needless to say if I buy something different to try, I am always dissappionted I didn't buy Caribou instead... everything  just comes up short compared to it.

Caribou is good, but stronger

By 

from Chambersburg, PA

Comments about Caribou Coffee:

We recently received a Keurig from my mother-in-law, and we bought a coffee sample pack of K-cups.  The Caribou coffee was a very strong coffee to me.  I am also someone who drinks my coffee with milk and sugar, so I'm not looking for as much coffee taste as some people.  However, the taste of the coffee was so strong, I thought something was wrong with it.  My husband, on the other hand, loves strong coffee.  He drinks his coffee plain, and he feels this is makes a great cup of coffee.  So, depending on your coffee preferences, you might or might not like this coffee.  I'm also not sure if the K-cups are stronger than the home brewed coffee, or they are a little stronger.  Either way, my hubby still thinks its a great cup of coffee. If you are in to stronger coffees, then you should be in heaven! I don't know that I would consider it better than Starbucks.  However, it still packs a powerful punch.

Caribou coffee Great in the kcup form!!

By 

from Bronx, NY

Comments about Caribou Coffee:

**Well I love many brands of coffee, and Caribou coffee kcups are definitely on the list now as well. A lot of new coffee brands that I am in love with are because I tried their kcup and fell in love with them. I tried just one of the plain Caribou kcups and really liked it. It's a nice medium blend coffee. Regular not flavored. Very nice for everyday drinking.  I know there are other Caribou flavors/ varities which I definitely would like to try now. My husband likes Caribou kcups as well. So if you are a coffee diva as I am , definitely try this in the kcup form  if you have a keurig, or the bag form if you have just a regular coffee maker. Either way I think you'll definitely like it ! **
