5 Best Mocha K-Cups – Reviewed in 2019

1. Café Escapes Café Mocha K-Cup Pods – Top Pick

Café Escapes Café Mocha

The Café Escapes Café Mocha is a 24-pack of a great blend of coffee and chocolate flavors. The chocolate is decadent, and the coffee is subtle. It is the ideal afternoon pick-me-up, or a treat, just because you want one.

This mocha is delicious, but it has a lot of sugar and other artificial ingredients in it. If you are a person who tries to go natural with everything you put into your body, this isn’t the drink for you.

These K-cups are meant to be used with the Keurig Single Cup Brewers, but they are compatible with the Keurig 2.0 too.

Pros
  • Great balance of coffee and chocolate
  • 24-pack
  • For use with Keurig Single Cup Brewers and Keurig 2.0
  • Great for pick-me-up or quick treat
Cons
  • Too much sugar
  • Lots of artificial ingredients

2. Starbucks Mocha Caffè Latte Medium Roast Keurig Pods – The Runner-Up

Starbucks Mocha Caffè Latte Medium Roast Keurig Pods

The Starbucks Mocha Caffé Latte Medium Roast Keurig Pods are made for use in Keurig Single Cup Brewers and come in a case of 24 pods. Each pod has a delicate blend of Starbucks coffee and milk, along with the perfect amount of rich chocolate, giving you the sweet treat you deserve any time of day.

This Starbucks blend is good coffee, but you can tell that it’s made of processed foods. It isn’t the quality product that you find in the Starbucks stores. It also leaves a little bitter aftertaste in your mouth.

Pros
  • Made with milk and a blend of Starbucks coffee
  • Rich chocolate
  • 24 pods
  • For Keurig Single Cup Brewers
Cons
  • Processed taste
  • Leaves bitter aftertaste

3. Gevalia Mocha Latte Espresso K-Cups for Keurig

Gevalia Mocha Latte Espresso K-Cups for Keurig

The Gevalia Mocha Latte Espresso K-Cups will fit any Keurig brewing machines, including the 2.0. The froth powder is made with real milk, and the coffee is from 100% Arabica coffee beans.

When we first tried this blend, we found that it was bland. We adjusted the cup size down, and it became more flavorful, but it started to have a somewhat bitter taste.

These Gevalia K-cups come in a case of 36 pods, but about 10% of them were defective. They split open and allowed grounds into our coffee cup.

Pros
  • 100% Arabica coffee beans
  • Mocha froth powder made with real milk
  • 36 K-cups
Cons
  • Bland
  • Somewhat bitter taste
  • Defective cups

4. The Original Donut Shop Coconut Mocha K-Cups

The Original Donut Shop Coconut Mocha K-Cups

The Original Donut Shop Coconut Mocha K-Cups are a blend of coffee that tastes like a coconut-topped chocolate donut, and they don’t contain any artificial ingredients.

The company claims these have extra coffee for an extra-bold flavor, but we found that they had a watered-down taste. We didn’t taste much of the chocolate or coconut either.

When we received our box, there was a sticker that said it had new packaging. We weren’t impressed. The seals don’t hold very well, and we ended up with a lot of coffee grounds in our cup.

Pros
  • Tastes like coconut-topped chocolate donut
  • Extra-bold
  • No artificial ingredients
Cons
  • Tastes watered-down
  • Not much chocolate or coconut flavor
  • New packaging isn’t good

5. Green Mountain Toasted Marshmallow Mocha K-Cups

Green Mountain Toasted Marshmallow Mocha K-Cups

The Green Mountain Toasted Marshmallow Mocha K-Cups come in a box of 18 pods. This is a seasonal flavor that combines the taste of your coffee with chocolate and toasted marshmallows.

The coffee itself has a weak flavor, and the marshmallow doesn’t taste like a marshmallow at all, let alone toasted ones. It’s an okay choice for something different in the fall season, but it leaves an artificial aftertaste in your mouth.

Pros
  • Seasonal flavor
  • 18 K-cups
Cons
  • Doesn’t taste like roasted marshmallow
  • Weak flavor
  • Artificial aftertaste
