While selecting coffee pods, one’s main focus should be the flavors. If you are a coffee lover and love to experiment when it comes to flavors, you must have a clear image in your head of what exactly you are looking for. When you buy these pods, you are going to find a clear description of all the flavors on the front side of the box. Normally, the description given on the box is not exactly what’s inside. For this purpose, we tested the pods and the results were more than what we had expected.  

It has got a creamy body. The intensity is described as 9, so a dark and bitter cup of coffee was expected from this pod. After brewing it the results were quite opposite to that. You get a nice cup of coffee, which is not all bitter. There is a nice amount of crema on top of it. All the flavors are placed just right in place. In every sip, you are going to get equal notes of bitterness and sweetness with hints of nuts. 


Don’t know about you, but it is my personal belief that if your coffee does not smell nice, it is not going to taste well. In some cases, we can get some exceptions. But we all can agree that coffee that smells bad can ruin the whole mood. We can give Peet’s Crema Scura Nespresso Capsule 10/10 for the aroma. When you brew this one the whole room is going to smell fresh. In winter, it is going to give you all cozy vibes, so it is a win-win situation with this one. 


Peets coffee is best known for its packaging and presentation. The product’s first impression is made through the packaging. If it is impressive, it is going to leave an impression on the customer. With just one look, one can decide whether they want to buy this product or not. Peets coffee is just outstanding. The best part is that you will not be needing an extra container after opening the packaging. You can simply store all the pods in the box. There are dedicated small spaces created for storing each pod separately.

If you want to analyze the pods without opening the packaging, you can do so. As the pods are visible from the top of the boxes. We are in love with this feature as we can easily analyze if any of these pods are damaged or not. Previously, after spending a fortune number of bucks, the pods turned out to be damaged. This packaging will save you from all the hustle. 


There is no denying the fact that Peets coffee is one of the best coffees you can ever going to find. Their pods are the best when it comes to freshness. Each pod is made with care. These are aluminum pods, so you never have to worry about freshness. The aroma and crispiness of coffee are still intact in every pod so that in every sip you can enjoy fresh flavors. 

Best time to drink it

Coffee is a comfortable beverage, you can drink it anytime, anywhere you want. You can drink it whenever you like, but since the intensity is 9/10 do not drink it around your bedtime. Unless you want to stay awake the whole night. The best time to drink coffee with such high intensity is in the morning. Especially, if you are one of those people who have trouble getting out of bed every morning. Just one cup of coffee and you will be good to function all day long. Avoid drinking it on an empty stomach if you have anxiety issues. Drinking too much of this high-intensity coffee can result in fast heat beat and trembling hands. 

Best food to pair it with

Since this coffee has high intensity, it is best to have it with breakfast. You can pair it with your favorite breakfast. The best food to pair it with is basic French sugar crepes. But there is no obligation, you can eat whatever you want. But since it is intense and bitter, it is better to stay off sweets and desserts. These are going to ruin the whole experience. Stick with something plain which does not have too many flavors in it. 

Best music to listen to

 This coffee is an energy booster, it is better if you pair it with upbeat music. The music should complement your energy level. The music choice can vary from person to person, depending on their taste and mood. Some people prefer folk tunes from the likes of Neil Young and John Lennon. So, if you are looking forward to something like this, go for it.
