Timothy's World Coffee
Ethiopian Kimssa (K-Cup)
|Roaster Location:||Toronto, Canada|
|Review Date:||December 2005|
Blind Assessment: (As brewed in a Keurig B60 single-serve brewing device using a "K-Cup" capsule at a cup volume of 5.25 ounces): Sweet, round aroma complicated by cherry-toned fruit notes. Rather rich in the cup, with decent body and sweet, wine-toned acidity but little else in the way of nuance. Clean, round short finish, slight bitterness in the long.
Notes: Keurig brewing devices (www.keurig.com) were among the first single-serve brewers on the market, starting in the mid 1990's with office models and now with three home models, the no-frills B40, the B60 with more flexible brew-strength/serving size, and the full-featured B60. Timothy's is a Toronto-based, quality-oriented specialty coffee chain. Visit
Who Should Drink It : A pleasant, substantial cup, but rather generic. Those in search of a distinctive Ethiopia-style coffee will be disappointed.
