Blind Assessment:

(As brewed in a Keurig Vue single-serve brewing device using a Vue-Pack capsule on the regular – alternative to “strong” – setting to produce a 6-ounce or serving): Caramel, cedar, hints of chocolate and peach in the aroma. Quiet, sweet-toned acidity. A distinct, pleasingly cedar-toned chocolate dominates in the cup and persists in a mildly drying finish.

Notes:

Coffee People is a brand of Diedrich Coffee, which in turn is owned by Green Mountain Coffee Roasters. It appears that Donut Shop is a blend designed to compete with the medium-roasted Dunkin’ Donuts blend.  Visit www.GreenMountainCoffee.com or call 888-879-4627 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: A quiet, round version of the classic American breakfast cup.
