Green Mountain Coffee
|Roaster Location:||Waterbury, Vermont|
|Review Date:||February 1997|
Blind Assessment: An exquisitely balanced traditional American-style coffee. The acidity is dry without astringency, alive with slight fruit or wine notes. Enveloped in the matrix of the body, it is always present but never dominant.
Notes: An exquisitely balanced traditional American-style coffee. Green Mountain Coffee Roasters is one of the country’s leading specialty roasters, offering a particularly wide-ranging variety of origins and roast styles. Visit www.greenmountaincoffee.com or call 888-879-4627 for more information.
Who Should Drink It: Traditionalists who are acute enough to catch the grace notes. Don't waste this coffee on a buffet, the fruit notes will burn off before anyone tastes them. Brew it in a drip maker, but drink it mindfully, right after it dribbles. Go easy on the additives. If you're entertaining a small group that mixes coffee snobs with supermarket palates, this one might have a shot at pleasing everybody.
