Decaffeinated (K-Cup) by Van Houtte Cafe Review |
  • Van Houtte Cafe

    Montreal, Canada
  • Decaffeinated (K-Cup)

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: January 2004
Origin: Not disclosed Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Smoky, leathery and sweet in the aroma, with a hint of low-toned fruit. Softens and relaxes in the cup, with the smoky fruit sweetening toward chocolate. Lean in mouthfeel but rich in impression.

Notes: K-Cups are designed for the Keurig single-serve brewer. Van Houtte ("A Taste of Europe in Your Cup") is a large Canadian coffee roaster and office coffee service provider with its roots in European small-batch roasting. Visit for more info.

Who Should Drink It: Caffeine-avoiding lovers of the gently smoky style of darker-roast cup.


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.
