Nerd Fuel: Green Mountain – Maple Pecan

Autumn is finally here! It’s no secret that fall is my favorite season of the year. And while temperatures are still a little warmer than normal here in mountains of Tennessee, there’s no denying a hint of chill to the misty morning air. As usual, with the change of seasons comes a whole slew of …

Nerd Fuel: Krispy Kreme – Original Glazed Donut

Lately, I’ve been putting in a lot of hours of retro gaming. I know I’ve been promising to start my Game Cube/PS2 era reviews for a while now, but things always seem to come up or my head always gets flooded with a ton of new ideas, that keeps pushing those reviews to the backburner. …

Nerd Fuel: Donut Shop – Honey Bun

During my recent trek to find new K-Cup varieties, I came across a new Donut Shop flavor that I had never seen before; honey bun. Now, it’s no secret that plain Donut Shop is one of my all time favorite K-Cups. Also, of their flavored offerings that I’ve encountered thus far, only one failed to …

Nerd Fuel: Community Coffee – Founder’s Blend

Recently I complained about the lack of new coffee options at my local grocery store. This led me to venture out of town in search of some new varieties to sample. As a result of my efforts, I have found a number of new (at least to me) and exciting flavors and blends to share …

Nerd Fuel: Folgers 1850 – Pioneer Blend

Maybe I’ve never come right out and said it. But, generally speaking, I don’t usually enjoy your run-of-the-mill everyday coffee. I’m talking about your standard mass-market grocery store coffee; Folgers, Maxwell House, Hills Bros, etc. To me, most of them taste pretty much the same. They’re not bad, but they’re not particularly good either. They …

Nerd Fuel: Mystic Monk Coffee – Snickering Monk Candy Bar

In my quest to sample a wide variety of K-Cups, I occasionally come across some rather obscure coffees. A good example would be the Butter Moon variety by Ugly Mug Coffee – I’ve never seen it on the shelf since the fateful day I discovered it. Ugly Mug is a little known company, but one …

Nerd Fuel: Barnie’s – Barnie’s Cafe Blend

The quest for the perfect coffee continues. It seems like one of the biggest problems I have with finding new coffees to try is variety. So, for this Nerd Fuel entry, I decided to take my coffee shopping out of town. Instead of my local Wal-Mart, I hopped one town over to the nearest Publix …

Nerd Fuel – Starbucks – 2018 Holiday Blend

Merry Christmas! I just couldn’t let the Christmas season come and go without sampling some kind of seasonal coffee. Usually, there’s any number of holiday varieties available on the store shelves – gingerbread, peppermint, etc. But this year, I found the options at my local grocer to be rather slim. But at least they did …

Nerd Fuel: Donut Shop – Chocolate Glazed Donut

It’s been several months since I sat down and did a new coffee review. To be honest, that’s been mainly due to two reasons. First, I have a new work schedule that’s been highly unusual. Currently, I find myself waking up around three-thirty in the morning and heading to bed around eight in the evening. …

Nerd Fuel: Green Mountain – Breakfast Blend

It has been a few months since I posted a Nerd Fuel review. So this time, I decided to go back to basics. No fancy foreign coffees, no seasonal blends, etc. I just wanted to try something simple. This morning I took a trip to the local grocery store and picked up one of those …
