Taste the Difference of RealCup

Disclosure: I was not financially compensated for this post. I received a sample of the product for review purposes. The opinions are my own, based on my personal experience with the product.

I recently discovered the secret to an amazing cup of coffee! It’s actually not really a secret, but I just didn’t know about it. The funny thing was that I had already been purchasing these single serve cups for my Keurig brewer and didn’t even realize it.

The secret is in the filter! RealCup™ single serve cups have a Flavor Max Filter that gives you maximum amount of flavour in your cup of coffee or tea. A variety of brands have chosen to use this special filter including brands that I was already purchasing on a regular basis. I own a Keurig brewer and that’s the only way I make my coffee at home. It’s the best brewer on the market in my opinion.

The Flavor Max Filter is unique because it uses non-woven fibers to ensure all the flavours, colours and aromas end up where they belong…in your cup.  The coffee/tea is inside surrounded by an airtight flavor seal to keep it fresh. This diagram explains a little more about how it works.


The folks at RealCup™ sent me a box of single serve cups of brands using the RealCup technology. They include single serve cups from Martinson, Brown Gold, Marley Coffee and Higgins & Burke. They even separated them out for me so I could easily pick and choose the type of coffee (or tea) I wanted to try.

And teas too! I’m not a tea drinker so I’m saving these for my friend Angel’s visit to Nova Scotia later this month.

My K-cup carousel was stocked full! John and I both live on coffee so we went through them quick. Good thing we can buy more at Sobeys.

So I’m sure you are wondering about the taste….let’s just say that RealCup™ single serve cups make a pretty darn awesome cup of coffee! From the smell of it brewing to the first delicious sip in the morning, RealCup™ is a winner. I had a hard time deciding on which one was my favourite. However, I’m going to say Martinson  Joe’s Pumpkin Pie. It was one of the best flavoured coffee I’ve tried yet and I’m sure the difference is in the FlavorMax filter. It was smooth, creamy and spicy just like pumpkin pie should be.
