Blind Assessment:

(As brewed in a Keurig 2.0 K500 Series single-serve brewing device at a 6-ounce serving size). Crisp and sweet. Candied walnut, lantana-like flowers, vanilla paste and fresh-cut fir in aroma and cup. Crisply bright acidity; light, silky mouthfeel. Walnut and lantana sustain in a sweet-toned, richly drying finish.

Notes:

This coffee is certified organically grown and Fair Trade Certified, the latter 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: An engagingly sweet, crisp, nut-toned K-cup blend with impressive environmental and socio-economic credentials.
