Baronet Coffee Roasters
Colombian LIght Roast (paper pod)
|Roaster Location:||Hartford, Connecticut|
|Roast Level:||Very Dark|
|Est. Price:||$8.50/16 pods|
|Review Date:||April 2011|
Blind Assessment: (As brewed in a Bunn My Café single-serve brewing device to produce a 6-ounce serving): Rather lively, savory-sweet profile with ripe tomato and dark chocolate suggestions carrying from aroma through cup to finish. Smooth mouthfeel, lemony acidity. The aromatics are only fully expressed in the cup; the aroma is a bit muted in intensity and the finish pleasing but short.
Notes: The Bunn My Café (www.bunnmycafe.com) is a well-designed, versatile machine that brews from pillow-shaped paper pods. However, at this writing (early 2011), and based on our testing, the range and quality of Bunn-compatible pods available from cooperating roasting companies do not quite appear to live up to the potential of the machine. In operation since 1930, Baronet is a third generation, family-run coffee business. Visit
Who Should Drink It : Genuinely captures some Colombia character: richness, ripe tomatoey and lemony acidity rounded by a hint of dark chocolate. Unfortunately, lacks carry-through in aroma and finish.
