Blind Assessment:

(As brewed in a Keurig B70 Platinum single-serve brewing device using a “K-Cup” capsule to produce a 6-ounce serving size): Muted aroma of orangey fruit, caramel and wood. Lightly syrupy mouthfeel and simple flavors: nut, raisin and caramel. Muted sweetness in the finish fades rather quickly to a mildly astringent nut-like character.

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 names such as Mini, Elite and Platinum. This sample is offered in an “Extra Bold” K-Cup that packs more coffee into the capsule and produces a more intense flavor profile than a regular K-Cup. Donut House Collection is a brand of coffee roasted and sold by Green Mountain. 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.

Who Should Drink It: A straight-forward decaffeinated coffee with excellent body.
