Green Mountain Coffee
Colombian Fair-Trade Select (K-Cup)
|Roaster Location:||Waterbury, Vermont|
|Roast Level:||Very Dark|
|Review Date:||January 2009|
Blind Assessment: (As brewed in a Keurig B60 single-serve brewing device using a "K-Cup" capsule to produce a 6-ounce serving size): Aromatic notes of chocolate, sweet tomato-like citrus and orange. Brightly balanced fruit-toned acidity, with sweet orange notes turning toward caramel and milky chocolate. Simple sweetness in the finish.
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 with three home models, the no-frills B40, the B60 with more flexible brew-strength/serving size, and the full-featured B70. This sample is offered in a K-Cup that packs more coffee into the capsule and produces a more intense flavor profile than a normal K-Cup. Certified Fair Trade, meaning this coffee was purchased from small-holding farmers at a "fair" or economically sustainable price.
