Jiva Coffee Cubes

I had watched Dodger's review of these Jiva coffee cubes over on her YouTube channel, and she recommended them. Dodger drinks a lot of coffeh, so I trusted her judgment on this. Jiva's coffee cubes originally started as a Kickstarter, but they fully funded, and you can order these cubes over on their website. That is what I did after watching Dodger's review, I got an assorted box, with everything from Classic Coffee, to Caramel Hot Chocolate in the box. It did take quite a while to get these shipped to my house, almost a month, but I imagine this was to ensure I was getting the freshest coffee cubes possible. Here's what came in the box and bag:

  • 4 cubes of each of these flavors: Classic, Mocha, Caramel, Hazelnut, French Vanilla, Hot Chocolate, and Caramel Hot Chocolate.




The directions say to drop 1-2 cubes into a cup of 8 oz. hot water or milk, let steep for 30 seconds, then stir. I used my Keurig to get a cup of 8 oz. hot water and I used 2 cubes of Caramel Coffee flavor. They dissolved completely, and they already have sugar in the cube (a fancy "unprocessed, unbleached Panela brown sugar" to be exact) so I only added a little bit of creamer once they were done dissolving. I think 2 cubes is the right amount if you like your coffee pretty strong. It does have quite a bit of sugar in there, so light on the creamer if any. The caramel flavor was definitely there, which I was happy about. Many K-cup caramel varieties I've tried don't taste like caramel at all, but these cubes had a pretty strong caramel flavor.

All in all, I'm really happy with my purchase as this box of 28 cubes is enough for 28 servings if you use 1 cube, or 14 servings if you use 2 cubes. I don't think I'd use more than that, and even 2 cubes is pretty strong if you use 8 oz. of liquid. The assorted box, was $17.99 plus shipping, and I think these are perfect for traveling (better than hotel coffee for sure), or for when I go to work and don't have time to make coffee. I can get hot water at work, and bring a mug with me and I'll be set. I would highly recommend these to anyone who enjoys coffee, is in a rush in the morning, or if you travel a lot. Even if you have a Keurig or some other fancy coffee maker, these are a great fast alternative.
