Green Mountain Coffee
Flor de Cauca Fair Trade Colombia Special Reserve
|Roaster Location:||Waterbury, Vermont|
|Coffee Origin:||Cauca Department, southern Colombia.|
|Review Date:||February 2009|
Blind Assessment: An aromatically simple but deeply resonant coffee. Richly pungent aroma with hints of nut, raisin and dark chocolate. In the cup lightly syrupy mouthfeel and a quietly vibrant, roast-toned acidity. Continued suggestions of raisin or perhaps dried cherry, dark chocolate, nut. Clean, sweet, though rather short finish.
Notes: A special seasonal offering, the first of Green Mountain Coffee Roasters' 2009 Special Reserve series of small-lot single-origin coffees. Cauca is one of Colombia's most admired growing regions. This coffee is Certified Fair Trade, meaning it was purchased from small-holding farmers at a "fair" or economically sustainable price. 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.
