Blind Assessment:

(As brewed in a Keurig 2.0 K500 Series single-serve brewing device at a 6-ounce serving size). Sweet and accessible. Apricot, almond, turbinado sugar and a hint of magnolia in aroma and cup. Brisk, balanced acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. The finish is crisply sweet and gentle with a continuing almond suggestion.

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: This sweet-toned, balanced K-cup blend should appeal to those who enjoy milder coffees.
