|Roaster Location:||Waterbury, Vermont|
|Roast Level:||Very Dark|
|Est. Price:||$15.45/24 K-Cups|
|Review Date:||April 2011|
(As brewed in a Keurig B70 Platinum single-serve brewing device using a "K-Cup" capsule to produce 6-ounce serving): Sweet-toned, soft, balanced, with a grapy, Riesling-like fruit and hints of dark chocolate and flowers. Muted aroma and short (if rich) finish. Best in the cup: bright, delicate acidity, lightly syrupy mouthfeel and gently complex flavor.
This coffee is Fair Trade certified, meaning this coffee was purchased from small-holding farmers at a “fair” or economically sustainable price. 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. Green Mountain Coffee Roasters is one of the country’s leading specialty roasters, offering a particularly wide-ranging variety of origins and roast styles.
