Green Mountain Coffee
Fair Trade Organic Ethiopia Yirgacheffe
|Roaster Location:||Waterbury, Vermont|
|Coffee Origin:||Yirgacheffe growing region, Sidamo Province, southern Ethiopia.|
|Review Date:||November 2009|
Blind Assessment: Intensely aromatic yet finely balanced. The rich aroma is dominated by a pungent cedar sensation with backgrounded caramelly chocolate sweetness and a hint of flowers. The chocolaty fruit and night floral notes move lushly forward in the cup, persisting into the finish. Soft acidity, lightly syrupy mouthfeel.
Notes: This coffee is certified organically grown and Fair Trade, meaning it was purchased from small-holding farmers at a "fair" or economically sustainable price. 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: An unusually poised, quietly complete version of the aromatic, extravagantly floral Yirgacheffe cup.
