Coffee Review - Breakfast Blend by Green Mountain Coffee
Roast: Medium Review Date: February 2011
Origin: Not disclosed. Price: $8.49/12 ounces

Blind Assessment: The aroma is rich with floral notes and a pungent black-currant-like fruit. Delicately and sweetly tart acidity; smooth, silky mouthfeel. The black currant note carries into the cup with an enveloping hint of dark chocolate. Slight hint of drying astringency in the finish.

Notes: Breakfast Blend has become the standard American description for a medium-roasted blend with a bright but balanced acidity. Green Mountain Coffee Roasters is one of the country's leading specialty roasters, offering a particularly wide-ranging variety of origins and roast styles, including this elite selection.

Who Should Drink It: A fine rendition of the classic American breakfast blend: sweetly tart, refreshing.


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.
