Supervalu is rolling out a new single-serve size of its Java Delight premium coffee product – the UnCup – that will be available in stores beginning this month.

Jave Delight private label image“The UnCup pod provides our customers with a premium single-serve coffee at an affordable price,” said Sam Mayberry, Supervalu vice president of private brands. “It was also important for us to develop a product that is more environmentally friendly and our UnCup single-serve pod uses 30 percent less material by weight than the leading national brand pod.”

The coffee will initially be available in six flavors with additional flavors currently in development. The UnCup pod can be used with leading single-serve coffee makers including Keurig brewing systems.

The Java Delight Single Serve UnCup will be available in all of Supervalu’s traditional retail banners including Acme, Albertsons, Cub Foods, Farm Fresh, Hornbacher’s, Jewel-Osco, Shaw’s, Star Market, Shop ‘N Save and Shoppers. The Java Delight UnCup will also be available at independent stores who are supplied by Supervalu.

Both Kroger and Safeway are also launching private label single-serve coffee pods compatible with Keurig coffee machines. The long-held patent on the single-serve K-Cups held by Green Mountain expires this month.

I love the decaf . it definitely has more flavour than a standard k cup . I can brew a larger cup without losing flavour making these more cost effective as well . I wish I could find a way to buy them in bulk

The French Roast Regular and Decaf are the best tasting single brews I've ever had, and I drink coffee all day long.

Got a box from Acme today because I was all out of my regular K-cup brand that I usually order online. I figured these would hold me over until I placed my online order for my usual brand - well, I'm switching! I have tried every single brand of k-cup out there and this by far is the best!

I absolutely LOVE these little pods. Less waste, Great taste. The only thing I would like better is to buy them in bulk. It seems like we go through a dozen in no time.Bigger quantities please.

Ok, I'm switching. These are the best tasting pods around. Love love love the Decaf. I hope Shaw's continues to get them even though they are not owned by SuperValu anymore.

Absolutely LOVE the French Roast DECAF...is it available in the 12 oz. bag? I am hooked on it after my first cup. Excellent product. One of the few DECAF coffees to not taste like DECAF. If you don't have 12 oz bags in DECAF: please, please, please, consider it. There are a lot of us coffee drinkers who, unfortunately, have to drink DECAF for various reasons. Thanks again for your consideration.

I loved the Uncups by Java Delight. What happened??? Now the packaging is only for Java Delight K-cups! Why the change?
Anita Worden at 2:28pm EST - November 16, 2014
Yes Where did the uncup go? I loved that! It was genius! Now my coffee has to spray through plastic? Sold out to big corporation. So disappointed.
PattyW at 5:17pm EST - December 20, 2014
Would someone please let me know if the DECAF FRENCH ROAST is available in the 12 oz. bag? If not, can you please consider it? This is certainly the best decaf I have ever tasted! I wrote almost a year ago with no response....
Bernadine C. Bartus at 4:29pm EST - February 9, 2015
First box I got was the uncup,and was the best coffee I have ever tasted.Then the next box had changed to a kcup.So disappointed in the taste now.Please offer the uncup again!
