Dark Magic (K-Cup) by Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Review | CoffeeReview.com
Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: January 2004
Origin: Not disclosed Price: NA

Blind Assessment: A coffee seen from the far end of the taste telescope, intriguing but shrunk and diminished. The aroma is lushly sweet with a hint of grapefruit. The cup is sweet as well, but complicated only by an agreeable but simple acidity. Once past the aroma little nuance of any kind. Slightly astringent in the finish.

Notes: K-Cups are designed for the Keurig single-serve brewer. I have cupped the Green Mountain Dark Magic blend before, and it hardly resembled this simplified, washed-out version. 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: Brian Eno fans.


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.
