Blind Assessment:

(As brewed in a Keurig B70 Platinum single-serve brewing device using a “K-Cup” capsule to produce 6-ounce serving): Pungent aromatic wood and prune-toned fruit with a hint of orangy citrus in aroma and cup. Roast-muted acidity; slightly rough mouthfeel; bittersweet finish.

Notes:

Reviewed in K-cup format for Keurig single-serve brewers. 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 several home models with a variety of features and price points. This blend is considerably darker roasted than typical coffees labeled breakfast blends. Tully’s is a large quality-oriented specialty roasting company and café chain based in the Seattle area.

Who Should Drink It: Richly roast-toned cup with a robust, roughish edge for Keurig owners.
