Arabica Express Organic Colombian
|Roaster Location:||Narragansett, Rhode Island|
|Review Date:||December 2005|
(As brewed in a Krups 1010 single-serve brewing device in a Podhead Sensation 62mm pod at a cup volume of 6 ounces): Simple, sweet, subdued, vaguely fruity aroma, with a slight hint of smoke. Bitterish, simple and shallow in the cup, with the only complication the same remote hints of fruit and smoke.
The Krups 1010 is the most elaborate and most expensive of three single-serve brewing devices that share pod format and marketing under the "Home Cafe" umbrella -- the other two are the Black & Decker One-Cup and the Mr. Coffee AT13. Www.podhead.com is a one-stop Internet shopping site for paper-format pods, both branded espresso pods as well as two series of its own non-espresso pods, the 44mm Arabica Express pods designed for the Melitta One:One and compatible brewers, and the Arabica Express Sensation 62mm line designed for Senseo, Black & Decker, Mr. Coffee, and other compatible brewers.

Who Should Drink It
This is the only pod we found filled with organically grown coffee. The simple, disappointing cup character may be owing to factors other than the green coffee: a poor fit in the Krups pod holder, for example, or a stale pod owing to compromised packaging.
