Green Mountain Coffee
Dark Magic (K-Cup)
|Roaster Location:||Waterbury, Vermont|
|Coffee Origin:||Not disclosed|
|Roast Level:||Very Dark|
|Review Date:||January 2004|
Blind Assessment: A coffee seen from the far end of the taste telescope, intriguing but shrunk and diminished. The aroma is lushly sweet with a hint of grapefruit. The cup is sweet as well, but complicated only by an agreeable but simple acidity. Once past the aroma little nuance of any kind. Slightly astringent in the finish.
Notes: K-Cups are designed for the Keurig single-serve brewer. I have cupped the Green Mountain Dark Magic blend before, and it hardly resembled this simplified, washed-out version. Green Mountain Coffee Roasters is one of the country's leading specialty roasters, offering a particularly wide-ranging variety of origins and roast styles.
