Jet Fuel is our favorite of the Coffee People "extra-bold trilogy"--Jet Fuel, Wake Up Call, and Black Tiger. It's dark, sweet, and rich, with a fuller body than Wake Up Call or Black Tiger. It has a clean finish and notes of chocolate and honey.

We also love the new packaging. Since K-cups are nitrogen-packed, the coffee doesn't go stale, so the last cup is as good as the first. If there are a couple of dark-roast lovers in your family, a box of 50 will be slurped down in no time. And I have to say that, even though we store them in the back of a dark cabinet, the box graphics are a nice touch. It probably cost them a fraction of a fraction of a cent to make it a little more attractive, and I appreciate that!

When you first got your Keurig brewer, you drank through the sampler coffees... and if you asked yourself, "Is that as dark as it gets??" then I think you'll go for Jet Fuel or one of the other Coffee People EBs.

P.S. You might look into Emeril's Big Easy Bold as well. It was the first big hit for us, and still one of our faves.

We get Coffee People Oranic X-bold through subscribe and save. Imagine my frustration when our last order contained a box of Jet Fuel. I'm pretty picky about my coffee. I don't like weak coffee, nor does my husband. I decided to try a cup of the Jet Fuel, hoping it was at least tolerable so I didn't have to go through the trouble of returning it.

We loved it. We were bummed when we ran out, and we're now going to switch our subscribe and save to Jet Fuel.

My husband likes his coffee extremely strong, so much so that I brew the 5 oz cups and double up on the kcups in a large mug. Basically, he likes sludge, lol.

He had been drinking Timothy's French Roast, but the price has gone up again and I really despise the packaging. Really...they're kcups, not bone china, why the need for 2 packages, carboard, plastic and another box?

I like the fact that these kcups come in a single box, not as much waste.

Anyway, my picky husband said that this coffee was surprisingly good. I'm happy without the extra packaging and the lower price tag.

Now they just need to put this on Subscribe and Save.

I will keep this one short and sweet. In the past 15 years going from my late teens to 30's I have become somewhat of a snob over what Joe I will allow to pass over my lips. The Keurig seemed like a fine idea but I was afraid, as with many of my snobs, that the coffee could not be strong enough to penetrate the morning fog around my brain on a Monday morning. I'm sorry to say that many K-cups fell flat on their faces and my confidence in Keurig was nearly lost. Well fret no more my friends because Jet Fuel is delicious and boy is it STRONG! There is no need for these silly shenanigans where people are starting the brew and then lifting the handle for longer steeping. Although I think if you did that with the Jet Fuel your eyes may literally shoot out of your head. Just pop in the cup and consume with smile. I bought this Keurig for my office and am already planning on one for home and my travel trailer. If you are as picky as I am about your morning ritual and like a nice strong cup of coffee please try the Jet Fuel. I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

I really like Coffee People Donut Shop coffee, but since it is a tad on the weak side for my tastes, I decided to try the Coffee People XBold variety pack.
For reference, I have a Keurig B66 which has 3 cup sizes (5.25, 7.25, 9.25oz), and I always use one K-cup for one 9.25oz cup, and I drink it black. I don't make smaller cups to make it stronger, nor do I run extra water to make it weaker. I judge each k-cup in 9.25oz. It should also be noted that I use spring water exclusively in my machine; done for both taste and machine longevity. (The tap water where I live is brutal. Life span of a water heater is 5-8 years.)

I tend to like full-bodied/full-flavored coffee (that doesn't always mean "strong"). Therefore, I tend to like the dark roasts better, which is why I find Donut Shop just a bit lacking (but I like it enough that I still drink it).

After trying the variety pack (and having since bought this item by itself as verified above), I can honestly say that by far my new favorite K-Cup is Jet Fuel (and I've tried at least 15-20 different varieties, not including flavored or decaf coffee). It has full flavor that is really good, but has no "strong" characteristics IMO (i.e. bitter, burnt, dense, etc.). When I took the first sip of Jet Fuel, I immediately thought, "Wow, this is good coffee!"

Highly recommended if you like a full-bodied coffee that doesn't have any bitterness or burnt characteristics, and is not too dense.

I confess that I never would have actually purchased a Keurig coffee maker, but I received one as a gift and I have found it to be a useful and enjoyable toy. Being able to brew one high-quality cup of coffee is indeed one of life's little luxuries.

Like other single-serving, prepackaged food technologies, however, Keurig k-cup coffee tends toward the expensive when compared to whole bean or tinned ground coffee. If for this reason alone the Amazon "subscribe and save" approach to buying K-cups would be a fabulous institution. By having the coffee delivered at regular intervals (with free shipping!) the cost is reduced considerably.

But which coffees to buy? I selected Jet Fuel partly, I confess, because the name is so darned cute. The (relatively) non-wasteful packaging also was an attraction, though let's face it, there is plenty of plastic residue associated with this brewing technology. The Coffee People at least minimize the waste, however, and for this I salute them.

What about the coffee itself? Jet Fuel is a dark, rich, full-bodied coffee that to me is reminiscent of the "industrial strength" coffee I can get at Peet's, my favorite west coast coffee purveyor/establishment. In other words, it's amazingly delicious. The Keurig system allows you to select the strength you want.

Overall, Jet Fuel is a winner for fans of robust coffee. Bon appetit!

I've been buying this coffee for a while and have found it to be my favorite of all the K-Cup coffees I have tried. It is nice and strong but not bitter or too acid. The price in the new 50 pack is also better than the smaller package sizes.

I have had a keurig for over 4 years. Never have I had grounds in my coffee until I bought a fifty pack of Jet fuel. As I work my way through the box, I am throwing out about every third cup. I "believe" the problem is a thinner than usual foil top, a larger hole is created, during the punch, and the water is not regulated at the same percentage. I called to talk to "the coffee people", 2x - never got a human, left my phone number both times, and have never gotten a call back in since the orginal call 10 days ago. I am done with jet fuel and coffee people, Timothy's - you have my k-cup money!

I figured "Jet Fuel," that's perfect! Expecting a really bold and full-flavored coffee but got instead a highly acidic and poor tasting brew. I don't recommend this one unless you're used to drinking coffee in the office that was brewed a couple of hours ago, as that's pretty much how I feel it tastes.

If there is a weakness with the Keurig coffee system, it's that most of the K-Cups--even the Extra Bold varieties--tend to brew a weaker cup of coffee, lacking the full flavor of a regularly brewed cup of Joe. I've therefore learned to order sampler packs if available, so I don't get stuck with a bunch of K-Cups I don't like. So I got the Coffee People's Extra Bold sampler pack which included, Black Tiger, Wake Up Call, Organic, and Jet Fuel. And I found them all purdy good.

But with the Jet Fuel, I found myself thinking, "Wow, I've finally found a satisfyingly full-flavored bold coffee!" I even had to put two creamers in my cup instead of my customary one, and I found myself savoring every sip. If you're looking for a full-flavored bold cuppa Joe, this one is for you!
