Green Mountain Coffee
Colombian Dos Quebradas Special Reserve Cup of Excellence
|Roaster Location:||Waterbury, Vermont|
|Coffee Origin:||Huila Department, southern Colombia.|
|Review Date:||August 2006|
A deep, spicy floral character - dusk flowers, tea rose - leads in aroma and cup, supported by low-acid fruit notes - peach, cherry - and hints of milk chocolate and leather. The acidity is deep-toned and round, the finish rich and clean.
A prize winner in the 2006 Colombia First Harvest Cup of Excellence competition, where as a green (unroasted) coffee it placed fourth out of hundreds of entries, attracting a score of 90.2 from an international jury. Produced from trees of the caturra variety of Arabica on the "Dos Quebradas" farm of Alonso Sevilla Zuniga at a growing altitude of approximately 5,600 feet. This coffee is part of Green Mountain's newly launched "Special Reserve" series of select small lots of seasonally available coffees. Keurig/Green Mountain, formerly Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, pioneered single-serve capsule brewing in the United States with its Keurig brewing system, and remains one of the country’s leading large specialty roasters, offering a particularly wide-ranging variety of origins and roast styles.
