Fair Trade Holiday Blend by Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Review | CoffeeReview.com
Roast: Dark Review Date: December 2008
Origin: Not disclosed. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: A very comfortable coffee. Sweetly balanced aroma: dark chocolate, raisiny fruit. In the cup low-toned, gentle acidity, roundly silky mouthfeel, continued dark chocolate and raisin notes supported by aromatic wood and perhaps a hint of lemon. The chocolate notes persist in the quietly rich finish.

Notes: Evaluated pre-ground. A blend of lighter and darker roasted coffees from Central and South America, all Certified Fair Trade, meaning these coffees were purchased from small-holding farmers at a "fair" or economically sustainable price. Green Mountain Coffee Roasters is one of the country's leading specialty roasters, offering a particularly wide-ranging variety of origins and roast styles.

Who Should Drink It: A darker roasted, restful holiday coffee with excellent social credentials.


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.
