These specialty coffee pods are filled with Grouch & Co’s best espresso blends, Ping, or our award-winning seasonal espresso blend, Sparky.
Ping is our elixir for late nights and early mornings. This blend tastes like a chocolate quik bunny, drinking a bottle of disaronno - think milk chocolate and almonds! It’s a full-bodied blend that will make you glide and swerve like Warren G.
Ping pours super well with alternative milks like, soy, coconut, and almond.
Sparky is a blend of the best of the current season’s crop.
Designed to pair perfectly with milk, or imbibed black this blend is smoother than a So Fresh CD in your Mum’s commodore. This D O double G tastes like smashing your face into a black forest gateau – think cherry, nougat, chocolate and super creamy.
