Blind Assessment:

(As brewed in a Keurig 2.0 K500 Series single-serve brewing device at a 6-ounce serving size). Richly sweet and spicy. Cocoa, molasses, lily, cedar in aroma and cup. Balanced, brisk acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. The richly drying finish is carried by cocoa notes and hints of lily.

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 Fair-Trade blend in K-cup format with an engaging balance of sweet cocoa and spicy wood.
