We are minimal coffee drinkers - we only drink one cup a day. We've tried Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts and Gevali - but this is our new favorite. Full and robust and DOES NOT clog the Keurig.

Not very strong.

A careful, thorough trial by a coffee lover
I do love my coffee. I am not a coffee snob and I enjoy many types of coffee brewed in different ways. I have a Keurig machine, a batch brewer and several other expensive machines. I sometimes grind my own beans and sometimes use economical blends. I admit that I do stop at my local coffee specialty shop to get something more exotic or artistic. I sometimes drink black and sometimes sweeten or flavor the coffee, depending on my mood. Yes, I do have my preferences and my favorites, but I find that mixing things up like this allows me to both notice better coffees and to not think something is a "bad coffee" simply because it is different from what I normally drink (which I guess would be my favorite every time). I am not opposed to dumping a cup of unsatisfactory coffee or walking out of a coffee shop with a quick complaint to the manager... or compliment as the case may be.
I tested this blend in the K machine and also used it in my batch system using 2 k-cups to make a stronger brew. The same afternoon I sweetened a double strength cup with a teaspoon of sugar and enough International Delight hazelnut creamer to give it a dark brown color. I did not study the company background or read reviews before writing this one... I will do later, however. I prefer fairly strong coffee, but not overwhelming.
As a first cup in the morning, This coffee was adequate but on the weak side of the scale. Tasted like good coffee, but not a big eye-opener. Second cup, double strength made in the nice bulk machine, was more my kind of thing. I enjoyed that cup and looked forward to my afternoon "desert" coffee after lunch. Sad to say, that one was not so memorable because it just seemed like any normal good coffee, like Melitta for instance. I did sweeten and use hazelnut creamer.
The following day I did the same routine except this time I did two double strength cups from the bulk machine in the morning and then skipped the sugar and creamer in the afternoon just to retaste the flavor strength of the coffee itself. This time I enjoyed it more.
I am not going to go into "flavor descriptions" as some reviewers do, I think this coffee is not designed to be a $5 cup of coffee. I am also not going to go into what kind of machines I use because someone will say those could make cornstarch taste great... but I will say that in opening the k-cups with a knife, I found an inner lining of plastic that most other k-cups don't have. Perhaps this gives a longer life to the storage, perhaps the plastic is undesirable. Up to you to decide. I personally would prefer Melitta blends to this, but it was NOT a bad coffee, just not quite as robust as I would have enjoyed.

Just as good as the more expensive coffees for less.

Rather Boring Breakfast Blend
When perusing other reviews here, I've noticed a number of adjectives like "average" or "neutral" or "mild". Sadly, all of these descriptions are true. While I'm not looking for my breakfast blend coffee to give me a New Orleans chickory-style slap across the face every morning, I do like a little brightness and character. This blend is, well, kinda boring. It's got decent flavor, albeit it's notably mild. If you're inclined to put any cream and/or sugar in your morning joe, you'll lose track of whatever character it has completely.
I'm giving it a 3-star review because it's not completely devoid of flavor, and it's possible that you might like a milder blend to start your day. Overall, 3-star flavor ain't all that bad. It's a step up from the K-Cups you'll get at Aldi for about the same price. Also, any time I can get K-Cups for less than $0.50/pod, I think they're worth a second look. The current price point of $0.43/pod seems fair for the quality.

Surprisingly good value
Corner One Coffee has a smooth flavor that is a perfect morning coffee or all-day coffee. Current price on Amazon puts it at around 43 cents a cup, which is comparable to most other regular brands on the market. This makes it a good value if you are looking for organic coffee choices, as organic often costs a lot more than regular brands. Been through a third of the case and haven't had a bad cup yet. The cups work perfectly in our Keurig machine with no issues.

Good cup of coffee
This is a good, medium brew--on the lighter side of medium though. It's enhanced by three pluses: the fair trade; organically grown and reasonable price. Would definitely include it in my morning mix of blends.

Strong, but Smooth Finish
I was really surprised by this coffee. The breakfast blend is my preferred for any brand & I set my expectations low the flavor was to ust, but smooth. It had a nice caffeine kick instant expecting from a brand i wasn't familiar with. The price is pretty good compared to the coffee cups i normally but. Overall is way this is something I definitely try again. Solid breakfast blend, very little bitterness, & smooth finish. Solid 4 Stars.

Excellent coffee with bold flavor
Actually I'm drinking my very first cup of this new coffee as I type this review.
I wasn't sure what to expect from this Corner One coffee, since one reviewer said the Signature Roast flavor of Corner One is flat & mild.
Rest assured, this Breakfast Blend is neither of those things. Not flat, not mild. Instead, it's fairly robust and flavorful. It tastes good, and it's a pleasure to drink. It also works well in my Keurig machine -- the pod brewed perfectly.
To me, there's nothing worse than weak coffee (I always stray to the strong side) -- this Breakfast Blend is by no means super strong, but it's strong enough and will do quite nicely for the next three months while I enjoy this 100-pack of it.
Caffeine buzz coming on now ... time to get some work done ...
