Rated 5 out of 5 by Marathon Runner Wonderful, Unique Coffee- Must Try!
I consider coffee drinking somewhat of a hobby for me (I have bigger hobbies, I promise!), and after trying many k-cups, this is the first review I've been compelled to write. Nantucket Blend is the most unique coffee I have yet to taste. Many of the coffees that I've tried might be great, but the taste is is indistinguishable or hard to describe. Nantucket blend has wonderful berry undertones, but the sweetness is balanced with a great smoky flavor. Extremely unique! Many of the coffees I have tried describe themselves as having a berry flavor, which I usually cannot detect. However, Nantucket Blend truly has berry undertones, but it is not overpowering at all. I prefer dark, bold roasts. I take cream in my coffee, and I can't stand it if my cup tastes like cream and hot water! Nantucket Blend retained its flavor on the 6 or 8oz setting, mixed with cream. Dark Magic is my favorite first cup of the day, but this is quickly becoming my second cup.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MissMels Pleasing Cup of Coffee
I was gifted a Kuerig brewer and the Green Mountain Coffee's Nantucket Blend came along with it. Of the variety of coffees that came for me to sample this one was probably my favorite "go-to" coffee. I would describe the roast on the darker side of medium. To my taste, it is not a "complex" coffee and I wouldn't characterize it as "exquisitely interesting," but it is a reliable, fragrant, enjoyable cup of coffee. No surprises, no odd textures or after-tastes, and very well balanced. If you favor medium-roast and like a warm, flavorful cup of coffee that tastes like, well, just COFFEE then you'll probably enjoy Nantucket Blend. (I should note that I don't drink my coffee "black." I take my coffee with cream and sweetener and comment from that vantage point)

Rated 3 out of 5 by Chef Beast Great blend but a little thin
This distinctive blend delivers a unique, pleasing, nutty, well balanced flavor. Green Valley combines beans from around the globe, successfully creating a new, even, pleasant roast that delivers a fine flavor for breakfast through dinner dessert. Unfortunately, at K-cup quantities, this blend come up short, not quite enticing as an aroma, a bit thin and watery in the mouth. In one pot drip brewers this can be helped by adding more coffee. Overall, a promising brew that will please a wide audience, probably falling short for the deep, dark roast lover.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lari My Favorite
To me it's the best I've found to a simple cup of coffee with none of that extra special flavoring that needs to be described in long sentences. I wanted a plain cup of coffee that I could get anywhere, and to find that in a KCup to me was really hard, either it had weird after tastes, to bitter, or to acidic. This is just right, nothing "special" just a normal cup of coffee which works for me. Don't assume that I'm down playing the "averageness" of this KCup, but it's really good. Simple, not too strong or weak, good flavor, and too acidic.

Rated 2 out of 5 by DiMaggio Weak Flavor
This coffee is described as "full, hearty and distinctively complex", know that if you follow the directions and use a normal size coffee cup with a single K-Cup, it is none of these. But, if you use a normal size coffee cup and set your machine on "espresso" and use 2 K-Cups, it makes a good cup of coffee. This is also true with Green Mountain Country Blend and many other K-Cup varieties. Bottom line and after two years using their products, I have determined that KEURIG is not putting enough coffee in it's K-Cups.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Psychonut Love it, love it, love it
Of all the coffee's offered, and I've tried most now, I have two favorites and this is one of them. This is your perfect "wake up in the morning" brew. It's medium bodied, with a wonderful aroma, no 'back of the tongue' after taste, goes down smooth and leaves you wanting more. For me, this is the perfect cup of "daily brew", and the one I purchase the most. I could not really post a con for this coffee, but in my opinion, it's not the elegant brew for special occasions, just the perfect daily brew.

I've totally gotten addicted to the Green Mountain K-Cup Nantucket Blend. It has a nice smooth flavor with no acidic after taste. I guess it could be considered middle-of-the road as far as boldness is concerned - not too light and not too strong ... just right.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mary M Interesting flavor...in a good way
I loved the aroma of this coffee. I brewed it right before I went to work and the smell filled my car the whole drive over. I tried it with out anything (I'm usually a milk and sugar person) and it was a little too bitter for me. But when I added some cream it still had the bitterness but not as harsh which I liked. Then I added sugar and you could still taste the bitterness but the sugar helped ton it down as well and there is a great after taste. I just usually go for flavored ones, hence why this was a 4 star instead of 5.
