Blind Assessment:

(As brewed in a Keurig 2.0 K500 Series single-serve brewing device at a 6-ounce serving size). Caramel-toned. Apricot, baker’s chocolate, almond, fresh-cut redwood in aroma and cup. Bright, juicy acidity; light, lively mouthfeel. The quietly resonant finish consolidates quickly, though the apricot suggestions persist.

Notes:

This coffee is Fair Trade Certified, meaning it was purchased from small-holding farmers at a “fair” or economically sustainable price. Keurig/Green Mountain, formerly Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, pioneered single-serve capsule brewing in the United States with its Keurig brewing system, and offers a particularly wide-ranging variety of origins and roast styles for use in its sophisticated 2.0 brewing system.

The Bottom Line: A Colombia in K-cup format for those who enjoy caramel- and crisply- fruit-toned coffees.
