Blind Assessment: (As brewed in a Bunn My Cafe MCP single-serve brewing device using a 62mm pod at a cup volume of 5 ounces): Distinct sweet cocoa notes in the aroma, along with hints of low-acid fruit, cherry perhaps. In the cup richly acidy, lean-bodied but rich, with continued sweet cocoa and tart cherry notes with a shimmer of vanilla. Rich, tart but not overly astringent finish. The same pod brewed in the Krups 1010 at a cup volume of 6 ounces scored an 85 with a basically similar profile and description.
Notes: The Bunn My Cafe (www.bunnmycafe.com) is arguably the most generous of the new single-serve brewing devices: It is designed to take all of the current three sizes of paper pod, from 44mm through 62mm in diameter. Douwe Egberts, the venerable Dutch firm become a world player and now a part of food giant Sara Lee, produces four coffee blends. The blend in this package was not identified on the label, but it appears to be the Medium Roast. Visit www.senseo.com for more information.
Who Should Drink It : A complex, versatile cup sturdy enough to stand up to milk and, if you absolutely need to, sugar.
