Krispy Kreme's New Coffee. Posted on 11/17/2002.

So, while not an insufferable coffee snob, I'm pretty picky when it comes to my brew. Friends know I love my Peet's (Viennese blend being my favorite) -- I enjoy strong, rich, dark, flavorful coffees.

I also adore Krispy Kreme. I found myself there not long ago, and they're promoting their 4 new coffee roasts. Krispy Kreme's prior coffee offering, "America's Favorite Cup of Coffee," was typical diner swill--burned, bitter, unpleasant. But I thought I'd try their new product, and ordered myself a small cup of "Bold," their darkest roast.

And it was good. Really. Smooth, good flavor. Not burned or bitter. Not a great coffee, no Peet's or anything like that, but definitely a good complement to their donuts.
