Krispy Kreme Doughnuts is brewing a fresh cup of coffee that they say is “doughnut-worthy.” The new coffee is designed to be the perfect complement to its Original Glazed doughnuts.

The coffee is available now at Krispy Kreme shops nationwide.

You can choose from two authentic blends of fresh coffee: new Smooth for subtle, easy drinking and Rich for a more bold experience. Both are made from 100 percent Arabica beans.

To tempt even the snobbiest of coffee lovers Krispy Kreme is throwing in a free glazed doughnut.

Beginning February 6, Krispy Kreme customers who purchase any size of the new coffee will receive a free Original Glazed doughnut. The promotion runs through February 28.

“Our new Smooth coffee is the only coffee designed to be the perfect complement to Krispy Kreme’s freshly-made Original Glazed doughnuts and other treats. It’s a combination that’s deliciously inseparable, and we’re proud to say that our coffee is now doughnut-worthy.”

 

Wonder how they made the “doughnut-worthy” coffee. Here’s an excerpt from their website:

Matching a coffee with the unique taste of a Krispy Kreme doughnut is a complex feat, in part, because the coffee must have just the right balance of flavor profiles.

After sourcing Arabica beans from Sumatra, Colombia, Guatemala, and Brazil, Krispy Kreme Doughnuts spent months working with experts to create the perfect coffee blends for its doughnuts – offering light acidity to balance the sweetness and with nuttiness and citrus notes to complement the treats.

Lightly roasted with a subtle blend of Central and South American beans, the new Smooth blend is crafted to produce a smooth, balanced body for easy drinking and a naturally sweet finish.

As a bold alternative, the new Rich blend is an aromatic and flavorful medium-bodied blend of Central, African and Indo-Pacific beans, creating a lush, well-rounded flavor and satisfying finish.
