Peruvian RealCup by Brown Gold Review |
  • Brown Gold

    Mississauga, Canada
  • 100% Peruvian (RealCup capsule)

Roast: Medium Review Date: September 2013
Origin: Peru. Price: $26.52/48 RealCup capsules

Blind Assessment: (As brewed in a Keurig K-Cup B70 Platinum single-serve brewing device using a "RealCup" capsule to produce a 6-ounce serving): Sweet-toned, balanced, quiet. Caramel, hazelnut, hints of flowers and ripe lemon in aroma and, more intensely, in the cup. Delicately brisk acidity; very lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Flavor, particularly floral notes, carries with surprising intensity and persistence into a long, rich finish.

Notes: This coffee is part of the WaterWise Coffee initiative, which focuses on improving water access, conservation and purity in coffee producing countries. The project is a partnership between Brown Gold and TechnoServe, a leading NGO dedicated to helping men and women in poor areas of the developing world through technical education and support. RealCup capsules are manufactured by Mother Parkers Tea & Coffee and are compatible for use with the widely distributed Keurig K-Cup line of single-cup brewing devices.

Who Should Drink It: Owners of Keurig K-Cup and other compatible brewing devices who enjoy a delicate, balanced morning cup with a particularly fine finish.
