Dark Magic Blend by Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Review | CoffeeReview.com
Roast: Very-Dark Review Date: March 2008
Origin: Not disclosed. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Simple, roasty aroma, with smoke, toast, butter, cedar, a hint of bananaish fruit. In the cup heavily astringent but rich and sweet-toned with gently scorched cedar and dark chocolate notes and a surprising hint of night flowers. The rich sweetness dominates the astringency in the finish.

Notes: Green Mountain is one of the country's leading specialty roasters, offering a particularly wide-ranging variety of origins and roast styles. Visit www.greenmountaincoffee.com or call 800-223-6768 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy rough, rugged dark roasts with some complicating nuance and good sweetness.


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.
