This holiday season, I am starting off my 2018 Holiday Gift Guide with coffee. Why? Because you are going to need it. And give it too. illy is the epitome of Italian espresso and their K-Cup Pods are amazing. You get the fresh espresso flavor in Keurig compatible pods that will last for 10 uses per box. That is 10 days of supreme coffee at a price that cannot be beat. Each Arabica Selection has it's own unique roasting temperature and length of time to highlight each origins aroma and flavor. They've perfected the roast of each single origin, or ingredient, found in their signature illy blend. The distinct roast enhances the different flavors of each Arabica: the floral notes from Ethiopia, chocolate notes from Guatemala, caramel from Brazil and fruity notes from Colombia. Because happiness is savoring the taste right from its origins. 

They come in two flavors, illy Brasile K-Cup Pods and illy Colombia K-Cup Pods. Brasile has more caramel notes and is not bitter in the least.
