Blind Assessment: (As tasted in a Krups 1010 single-serve brewing device using a 62mm diameter "Home Cafe" pod at a cup volume of 7.5 ounces): Sweetly acidy, winey, high-toned aroma, with some rounding caramel and vanilla notes. In the cup surprisingly full-bodied, sweetly balanced, complicated by wine (more rose than cabernet), vanilla, floral notes. Cleanly sweet, cherry-toned finish. (In the Black & Decker One Cup Coffee Maker and Mr. Coffee AT13, lower-priced single-serve machines taking similar-sized pods, the same Folgers 100% Colombia pod attracted a rating of 81. In the Bunn My Cafe, a machine designed to take multiple sizes of pod, the same pod scored 82.)
Notes: The Krups 1010 (www.krupsusa.com) is the most elaborate and most expensive of three single-serve brewing devices that share pod format and marketing under the "Home Cafe" umbrella -- the other two are the Mr. Coffee AT13 and the Black & Decker One-Cup. Procter & Gamble, the coffee-producing partner of the Krups/Black & Decker/Mr. Coffee triumvirate, produces a handful of coffee pods sized for the Home Cafe group of machines under its Folgers and Millstone brands.

Who Should Drink It : Those who enjoy a delicately complex, sweet cup. Best black, but can handle some milk without completely fading.
