When it comes to pour-over coffee I’m a total beginner and that’s honestly because this mom doesn’t have time for all that every morning. 


I get that pour-over coffee is superior for coffee buffs, but it’s just too much work for me when you ultimately get the same result. 


Whether it’s brewed as a pour-over, in a Keurig, or in a drip coffee maker you still end up with a cup of coffee.


I’ve told you before I’m a no-frills coffee person and I really do mean that. 


I recognize good coffee when I taste it, but at the end of the day, I will drink it however.


All that said, my favorite coffee indulgence lately is single pour-overs from Copper Cow Coffee. 


You don’t need any fancy brewing equipment, you don’t even have to grind the beans.


Basically, you don’t need to know anything about pour-over coffee to brew something from Copper Cow Coffee and that’s what I really love about it.


It’s truly pour-over coffee for beginners.


Copper Cow Coffee is a women-owned small business that makes single-serve Vietnamese coffee pour-overs in convenient kits. 


Founded by Debbie Wei Mullin in 2017, Copper Cow Coffee has taken the coffee world by storm and provided a truly unique product showcasing Vietnamese-style coffee.

Vietnamese coffee is naturally stronger than most standard coffees and that’s because of the use of robusta beans over arabica beans. 


Copper Cow Coffee takes a unique approach in their Vietnamese coffee using a blend of 70% robusta beans and 30% arabica beans. 


It makes for a strong cup of coffee, but not too strong especially when you add in their amazing creamers to your liking.



For this review of Copper Cow Coffee, I purchased a variety of latte kits plus the 12-Day Advent Calendar, which included exclusive seasonal coffees in addition to some of their year-round classics paired with either the classic creamer or mocha creamer.


Unfortunately, because it’s a seasonal product, the advent calendar is not available right now for purchase, but it’s something they do every year so don’t worry…it will come back!


Many of the lattes I did try are standard offerings, though, so there are still plenty to choose from!


I ended up with such a variety that I decided to rank them according to my thoughts, so continue reading to see my Copper Cow Coffee review rankings!

Copper Cow Coffee Review Rankings



#1 – Earl Grey


Why oh why can’t I buy this ALL THE TIME Copper Cow Coffee?!


Earl Grey from Copper Cow Coffee is my favorite pour-over coffee for beginners!

Included in the advent calendar, this was my overall favorite out of all the coffee lattes I tried. It reminded me of Tanzania Peaberry from Crucible Coffee Roasters which was my overall favorite coffee for 2022.


This latte is a spin on the London Fog, a popular tea drink perfect for a dreary afternoon. The floral and citrusy notes from the black tea in Copper Cow Coffee’s version combined with the bergamot and cornflower make this latte sing and I loved it. 


It’s a seasonal flavor, but you can sign up for the waiting list and get notified when it’s released!



#2 – Gingerbread


Another seasonal selection from the advent calendar, this latte flavor was delicious and the perfect blend for the holiday season. Gingerbread Coffee from Copper Cow Coffee


Copper Cow Coffee describes it as your favorite family cookie recipe, and it does remind me of that. Flavor notes include ginger, real molasses, and ground cinnamon. And when you are doing the pour-over, it smells like a gingerbread cookie!


It’s a great take on a Gingerbread Latte and I highly recommend it if you are a fan of the Starbucks seasonal beverage!


#3 – Churro


The Curro Latte was oh so yummy and it’s one that is available year round!


Copper Cow Coffee grinds real cinnamon sticks into the coffee so the blend infuses as it brews. It’s a little spicy in that tasty cinnamon way and it’s one you don’t want to miss out on in my opinion!


Plus, as a bonus, cinnamon has several health benefits!



#4 – Peppermint


The Peppermint Latte pour-over is a seasonal flavor offering that you can use with either the classic creamer or the mocha creamer. 


I preferred it with the classic creamer as the peppermint flavor was more prominent for me that way. The mocha creamer is good, but it is rich and took away from the peppermint flavor I was after.


A real piece of peppermint is blended with the signature Vietnamese coffee grounds to make this delicious festive flavor. For an extra pop, use a candy cane as your stirring stick! 


Peppermint Coffee and Mocha Creamer



#5 – Pumpkin Spice


Move over Starbucks PSL, Copper Cow is coming for you with this one. 


This Pumpkin Spice Latte kit is the real deal and tastes amazing. Copper Cow is the only company that grinds real pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger root into their coffee. It’s a drink that tastes like fall in the best way possible.


My favorite part of brewing this one was the smell. It is heavenly and reminds me of walking into a house of freshly made pumpkin pie. 


Although this is a seasonal latte kit, you can still grab a bag of the Pumpkin Spice Ground Coffee if you want right now!





#6 – Chai

This limited edition release is delicious and something I truly enjoyed. It has a perfect blend of spices along with a dash of real vanilla that is just delicious.


If you are a fan of a Dirty Chai Latte from a coffee shop, you must try this flavor. And, in case you don’t know, a dirty chai is just a shot of espresso mixed into a chai latte. 


It’s an excellent coffee with a unique taste that highlights both the coffee and chai in a lovely way.




#7 – Classic Coffee


You honestly can’t go wrong with the classic coffee from Copper Cow Coffee. 


The unique blend of robusta and arabica coffee Copper Cow uses provides tasting notes of rich chocolate and nutty undertones. It’s a bold coffee that packs a punch if you drink it black.


But, if you combine it with the milk creamers it’s perfect in my opinion. And, that’s exactly how Vietnamese coffee is supposed to be drunk so it truly delivers.


The Classic Latte Set includes 5 black Vietnamese coffee pour-over filters and 5 single-serve sweetened condensed milk creamers.



#8 – Vanilla


Like all their blended flavors, the Vanilla includes real whole vanilla beans ground up into the coffee.


What’s great about this one, though, is that you don’t need a sugary syrup to capture that vanilla taste. When you add the milk creamer, it tastes like a Vanilla Latte you order at a coffee shop, but the difference is the ingredients used are natural.



#9 – Mint


A refreshing take on coffee, this latte uses mint leaves ground into the coffee to deliver a hefty mint flavor.


This one is great iced too, and I suggest trying it both hot and iced so you see how versatile this flavor is.


Copper Cow Coffee even has a delicious Mint Mocha Affogato Recipe you can try out using the Mint Latte kit!


#10 – Salted Caramel


A unique take on caramel coffee, the Salted Caramel doesn’t use any synthetic flavors to get that caramel flavor and includes a pinch of salt.


It’s delicious because of that perfect balance it strikes. I don’t think it needs much latte creamer either.



#11 – Lavender


The Lavender from Copper Cow Coffee is an acquired taste. My husband, for instance, really dislikes this one (especially the smell).


Copper Cow Coffee puts actual lavender buds in this blend (seriously you can see the lavender in the pour-over filter!).


If you don’t like lavender you won’t like this one because trust me you can both taste it and smell it. But if you enjoy lavender and coffee you have to give this one a shot because it’s so unique.

#12 – Rosemary


Real rosemary is ground into this blend, but if I’m honest I don’t want rosemary in my coffee.


I think rosemary is such a powerful herb and this one just missed the mark for me. But it was still fun to try (I mean have you ever had a Rosemary Latte?).



#13 – Raspberry


This was just a weird combo.


I get raspberry creamer/flavoring, but having raspberry mixed into the actual coffee just didn’t taste good to me.


This is another seasonal option though, so it’s not available right now. 



#14 – Ginger


A firm last for me in this ranking was the Ginger Coffee. Full disclosure, though, I’m not too fond of ginger. I’m also not a fan of gingersnap cookies, and that’s exactly what this coffee reminded me of. 


If my parents ever gave me a gingersnap cookie as a kid, I fed it to our dog (and for a while, my dad thought I liked gingersnaps until he realized what I actually did with them…)


Even adding the latte creamer didn’t help things. This one just tasted bad to me. But if you like gingersnap cookies maybe you would like this seasonal blend too.







Copper Cow Coffee is a unique coffee company and they are doing great things for both Vietnamese coffee and also pour-over coffee for beginners.


For this review on Copper Cow Coffee, I wanted to do a quick summary of some of the highs and lows because there are some really clear positives and a few drawbacks to highlight. 



Copper Cow Coffee Review – Pros and Cons




  • You don’t need any fancy brewing equipment for the pour-over coffee. It’s the perfect pour-over coffee for beginners.
  • The flavored coffees pack a punch because the actual ingredients are ground up and mixed with the coffee.
  • You can customize it to your liking (adding as much sweetened condensed milk creamer as you’d like…or none at all).




  • It’s a really great concept, but the bag for the pour-over coffee doesn’t fit all coffee mugs equally. It’s definitely better if you use a specific style/shaped mug (or just the one Copper Cow sells in their coffee starter kit). 
  • Some of their best flavors (in my opinion) are only available seasonally. 


Copper Cow Coffee Review on various pour-over lattes



I absolutely love Copper Cow Coffee and I can’t wait to get my hands on the Earl Grey Coffee again. In the meantime, the Classic and Vanilla Coffees will have to do!


If you’ve never had anything from Copper Cow Coffee before, I encourage you to give them a try. 


It’s the perfect introduction if you are a pour-over coffee beginner and their seasonal flavors are delicious and so much fun. They will keep you coming back over and over again to try something new or a favorite you haven’t had in a while!


Not only can you buy Copper Cow Coffee products online, but you can often find the latte kits at your local grocery store or Walmart too. 


They are always creating new flavor combinations and seasonal blends, so be sure to check back to my Copper Cow Coffee review for updates as I continue to try more and more flavors!
