Coffee Review - Colombian Fair Trade Select K-Cup by Green Mountain Coffee
Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: April 2013
Origin: Colombia Price: $16.49/24 K-Cups

Blind Assessment: (As brewed in a Keurig B70 Platinum single-serve brewing device using a Keurig-compatible capsule to produce a 6-ounce serving): Sweet-toned, gently pungent. Caramel, fruity dark chocolate, a hint of pine or perhaps clove in aroma and cup. Delicately crisp acidity; light but silky mouthfeel. Simple, mildly drying finish.

Notes: Certified Fair Trade, meaning this coffee was 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: Keurig-owners who value a sweetly crisp, balanced breakfast cup with Fair-Trade credentials.
