Blind Assessment:

(As brewed in a Keurig B70 Platinum single-serve brewing device using a “K-Cup” capsule to produce 6- and 8-ounce servings): Caramel and toast in the aroma with hints of citrus and flowers. Gently balanced acidity, medium body, silky mouthfeel. Sweet-toned in the cup, with continued caramel, toast and citrus notes. Flavor carries into the short finish, but fades toward astringency in the long.


Keurig brewing devices were among the first single-serve brewers on the market, starting in the mid 1990’s with office models and now offered in five home models with a variety of features and price points. Barista Prima Coffeehouse is a brand of coffee roasted and sold by Green Mountain under the motto, “European coffee artistry in your favorite cup.” The K-Cups in the Barista Prima collection pack more coffee into the capsule than even the “Extra Bold” K-cup, with the intention of producing a more intense flavor profile. Green Mountain Coffee Roasters is one of the country’s leading specialty roasters, offering a particularly wide-ranging variety of origins and roast styles.

Who Should Drink It: A sweet-toned, caramelly cup for Keurig owners.
