Victor Allen K-Cups coffee Variety Pack - 24 cents a cup!

+6 Deal Score
4,240 Views
24 cents a cup! variety pack, great coffee, we drink it all the time and cannot tell the difference between Victor Allen and other name brands.

Even with shipping, you'll be paying around .26 cents per cup vs. .45 cents plus at costco (when on sale). The other blends go on sale frequently so keep an eye on their weekly ad for the others to go on sale.

Must be too old, I'll never understand the attraction of the K-cup thing. Rather buy whole beans for ~$5/# and grind it fresh. But good to see ol' F&F moving uptown!

I justify them because of all the leftover coffee I was pouring down the drain or going to get a cup after it's been baking on the burner for an hour. laugh out loud

Love Farm and Fleet! woot

I miss the old days (before bar codes) when I could go in and go through all the stock on the shelves, picking out the items with the lowest priced sticker. Still got the new tire smell, though.

You can buy a reusable pod/K-cup if you prefer to use your own ground coffee or whatever blend you like. Best of both worlds.

EDIT: Here's a link to one of the many options available on Amazon - http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01DP1IWKU/

Yeah, I know, but I drink an 8-cup pot in the AM and can't imagine standing around waiting for each cup. Be OK for a shot in the afternoon.

For this brand, this is more or less the typical price at Biglots. Note that it does not fit certain non Keurig k-cup brewer. The quality of coffee is not so great either.

These are standard K-Cups, I use them all the time in my Keurig. Not sure about non Keurig machines. Also, quality is great, I'd challenge anyone to do a taste test. I have tried just about every brand out there and Victor Allen is just as good as any of the others. In fact, I challenged my wife to tell me which coffee I brewed the other day between the Victor Allen Colombian, Victor Allen Donut Shop or the Dunkin Donuts we got from Costco. I gave her a cup of the Dunkin Donuts and she guessed that it was Victor Allen Donut Shop. No difference except that VA is half the cost!

I got multiple boxes of these from Biglots and they all have a dimple on the bottom. As I said, it does not work in some non Keuring brand brewer. It works fine in Keurig. Due to the dimple, the cup would not be poked by the pin on the bottom in some generic brewer. This is likely due to the patent. I have tried more than two dozen kinds of k-cup from different brands, the taste of this brand is far below average. It also has 1/4 less coffee than other major brands (0.3oz vs 0.4oz). I got the Keurig ones for around 30 cents each and would not go back for this brand.

If anyone has the Amex Offer for Boxed.com, you may get two cases of Panera bread k-cups at lower cost than this with coupon/cashback.

shipping was $8 for me... no F&F in my state. That brings it to $0.32/cup.

That's a one-time deal limited to those with Amex. Good deal, but around 27 cents a cup since you have to buy $65+ to get the $25 Amex credit. Plus, the Panera Bread coffee is only available in French Roast or Hazelnut so I'll pass since I do not care for either flavor/blend.

The Victor Allen cups do have dimples at the bottom so non Keurig machines may have trouble, but they work fine in my Keurig and the side of the box states "For use in all single serve brewing systems, including Keurig 2.0". Taste is subjective, but we cannot tell the difference between the Victor Allen Donut Shop and Dunkin Donuts K-Cups. I also weighed them against the Dunkin Donuts K-Cups and there is only a 1 gram difference so assuming the components are similar (which they appear to be), that's nowhere near 25% less coffee. >

Dunkin Donuts K-Cup = 14 grams
Victor Allen K-Cup = 13 Grams

What really gets me are the so called sale prices at Costco at ~45 cents per cup!

The weight is clearly marked on package. It is 0.30oz vs 0.40/0.39oz of most Keurig like Green Mountain. That is net weight which is all matter. By the way, the boxed.com offer is on all my 7 AmEx. As I said, I would rather pay 30cents each for Keurig ones elsewhere not just relying on the boxed.com deal.

The Victor Allen is actually marked .35oz or 10 grams so 10 to 12.5% more coffee.

Anyway, we're splitting hairs. Whoever bought the VA, please reply back with your opinion on the taste.
