Blind Assessment:

(As brewed in a Keurig B70 Platinum single-serve brewing device using a “K-Cup” capsule to produce 10- and 12-ounce servings): Caramel, toast and a suggestion of orange in the aroma. Simplifies somewhat in the cup, with intensified caramel and fleeting hints of orange, chocolate and cedar, all more noticeable in the 10-ounce serving size. Sweet 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 offering five home models with a variety of features and price points. This “Travel Mug” K-Cup packs more coffee into the capsule than even the “Extra Bold” K-cup, with the intention of producing a larger volume of brewed coffee. Donut House Collection is a brand of coffee roasted and sold by Green Mountain, with the motto, “All Coffee. No Crumbs.” Green Mountain Coffee Roasters is one of the country’s leading specialty roasters, offering a particularly wide-ranging variety of origins and roast styles.

Who Should Drink It: Sweet simplicity should calm Keurig-owning commuters.
