Coffee Review - French Roast K-Cup from Green Mountain Coffee
Roast: Very-Dark Review Date: August 2010
Origin: Not disclosed. Price: $13.95/24 K-Cups

Blind Assessment: (As brewed in a Keurig B70 Platinum single-serve brewing device using a "K-Cup" capsule to produce 6- and 8-ounce servings): Round, roast-toned aroma with a suggestion of aromatic wood. In the cup light body, especially in the eight-ounce serving size, good sweetness and a soft smoky chocolate. The roasty aromatic wood carries into the finish. Displays most intensity when brewed at the six ounce serving size.

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 a variety of features and price points. This blend is offered in an "Extra Bold" K-Cup that packs more coffee into the capsule and produces a more intense flavor profile than a standard K-Cup. 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: Gentle, smoky chocolate in a genial dark roast for Keurig owners.
