Blind Assessment:

(As brewed in a Keurig B70 Platinum single-serve brewing device using a Keurig-compatible capsule containing 10 grams of coffee to produce a 6-ounce serving). Sweet-toned, delicately lively. Caramel, mild roasted nut, hints of apricot and flowers in aroma and cup. Very gently brisk acidity; light though silky mouthfeel. The caramel and nut suggestions turn faintly but pleasantly chocolaty in a clean, simple finish.

Notes:

These Keurig-compatible single-serve capsules were manufactured and filled by a third party, Intelligent Blends. Café Britt is a wholesale roaster, retailer, and supplier of coffee founded in Costa Rica in 1985 and now selling coffee in over twenty countries.
