Coffee Review - Barista Prima House Blend (K-Cup) by Green Mountain
Roast: Very-Dark Review Date: December 2010
Origin: Not disclosed. Price: $19.45/24 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): Caramel and toast in the aroma with hints of citrus and flowers. Gently balanced acidity, medium body, silky mouthfeel. Sweet-toned in the cup, with continued caramel, toast and citrus notes. Flavor carries into the short finish, but fades toward astringency in the long.

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 offered in five home models with a variety of features and price points. Barista Prima Coffeehouse is a brand of coffee roasted and sold by Green Mountain under the motto, “European coffee artistry in your favorite cup.” The K-Cups in the Barista Prima collection pack more coffee into the capsule than even the “Extra Bold” K-Cup, with the intention of producing a more intense flavor profile. 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 sweet-toned, caramelly cup for Keurig owners.
