Crisply sweet, subtly refined. Apple, white raisin, delicate nut-toned chocolate, lavender and rose in aroma and cup. Richly brisk acidity; lightly smooth and syrupy mouthfeel. Flavor consolidates in a gently drying finish.
A “honey” coffee, meaning the skin was removed from the coffee fruit immediately after picking but the beans or seeds were dried with at least some of the fruit pulp or “honey” still adhering to them. In the case of this refined “white honey” coffee, approximately ten percent of the pulp was left on the beans during drying. The honey practice contrasts to the more conventional wet or washed method, wherein both skin and all pulp are removed from the beans before drying. This is one of Green Mountain’s Special Reserve line of specially sourced, limited edition 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.
