Bold K-cups are for everyone who likes a really strong cup of coffee that is full of flavor. The trick when searching for bold coffee is to get that taste you want without the bitterness that tends to develop with a stronger brew. Rather than experiment with your own brewing skills, it's easier just to buy a K-cup that has been blended for bold to start with. The coffee in bold K-cups gets its rich taste because its been roasted longer, created darker beans that release their flavor more completely when brewed. One small benefit from drinking bolder coffee is that darkly roasted beans actually have a bit less caffeine in them than lightly roasted ones.
