Review of Donut House Decaf K-Cups by Green Mountain |
Roast: Medium Review Date: October 2009
Origin: Not disclosed. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: (As brewed in a Keurig B70 Platinum single-serve brewing device using a "K-Cup" capsule to produce a 6-ounce serving size): Muted aroma of orangey fruit, caramel and wood. Lightly syrupy mouthfeel and simple flavors: nut, raisin and caramel. Muted sweetness in the finish fades rather quickly to a mildly astringent nut-like character.

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 offering five home models with names such as Mini, Elite and Platinum. This sample is offered in an "Extra Bold" K-Cup that packs more coffee into the capsule and produces a more intense flavor profile than a regular K-Cup. Donut House Collection is a brand of coffee roasted and sold by Green Mountain. 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 straight-forward decaffeinated coffee with excellent body.
