Double Black Diamond Dark Roast (K-Cup) by Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Review |
Roast: Very-Dark Review Date: March 2008
Origin: Not disclosed. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: (As brewed in a Keurig B60 single-serve brewing device using a "K-Cup" capsule to produce a 6-ounce serving size): Delicate, gently exotic, faintly smoky, with cocoa, cedar, floral and caramel notes in both aroma and cup. Lightly syrupy and bittersweet in structure. The short finish is sweet and cocoa-toned, the long mildly astringent.

Notes: Keurig brewing devices were among the first single-serve brewers on the market, starting in the mid 1990's with office models and now with three home models, the no-frills B40, the B60 with more flexible brew-strength/serving size, and the full-featured B70. This sample is offered in a K-Cup that packs more coffee into the capsule and produces a more intense flavor profile than a normal K-Cup. Green Mountain is one of the country's leading specialty roasters, offering a particularly wide-ranging variety of origins and roast styles. Visit or call 888-879-4627 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Keurig owners who enjoy a smooth, bittersweet, quietly complex dark-roasted cup.


Coffee, more so than wine, is a continually changing product. Recent reviews, whether written by Coffee Review or readers, are most likely to reflect current versions of a given coffee.
