Revv K-Cup

Manufacturer: Revv Coffee
Manufacturer Website
Rating: B+

Revv Coffee takes an interesting spin on coffee marketing. They have embraced the energy kick that so many of us turn to our coffee for and seem to be vying for a share of the energy drink market that has become so popular over the last few years. The question is whether the flavor is as bold as the caffeine kick it provides.

The Revv brews up deep, ruddy brown in color topped with a light tan froth and a moderate amount of shimmering oil. The nose has light roasted notes highlighted by some smoke and fruit. On the palate there is a bright flavor. There are some light roasted notes that fade into the background. Smoke and almonds play supporting notes and a mild acidity rounds out the flavor. The Revv is medium-bodied with a fairly short finish leaving roasted notes and a touch of oiliness on the tip of the tongue.

I must admit I was pleasantly surprised with the Revv K-Cup. I was expecting something a bit more overpowering to match the "high-octane" marketing. Instead, what I found was a bright, flavorful coffee that is smooth and easy-drinking. This is not a coffee reserved for truck drivers and college students pulling an all-nighter. The flavor here makes it well worth a try.
