Blind Assessment:

(As brewed on a Keurig B70 Platinum single-serve brewing device using a “K-Cup” capsule to produce 6- and 8-ounce servings): Sweet aroma with hints of caramel, dark chocolate and fruit. In the cup soft, roast-muted acidity, silky mouthfeel and a continued caramelly dark chocolate and fruit, most pronounced at the stronger (6-ounce) serving size. The finish disappoints: woody astringency dominates the faintly lingering chocolate sweetness.

Notes:

Keurig brewing devices were among the first single-serve brewers on the market, starting in the mid 1990’s with office models and now including five home models with varying features and price-points. Headquartered in Orange County, California, Diedrich Coffee is a specialty coffee company that offers a range of whole bean and single serve coffees at retail locations and online.

Who Should Drink It: A gently roasty, dark-chocolate-toned cup for Keurig-owners.
