Green Mountain Coffee
French Roast Fair-Trade Organic
|Roaster Location:||Waterbury, Vermont|
|Coffee Origin:||Not disclosed.|
|Roast Level:||Very Dark|
|Review Date:||September 2008|
Deep, smoke-toned aroma with gently scorched wood notes, fir perhaps. Medium-bodied in the cup; the scorched wood notes round toward a pungent, herby dark chocolate. Thin but cleanly roasty finish.
This coffee is certified organically grown and Fair-Trade certified, meaning it was purchased from small-holding farmers at a "fair" or economically sustainable price. French Roast is the standard name in North America for a coffee that has been brought to an extreme dark roast that mutes the characteristics of the green coffee itself while foregrounding the pungent flavor of the roast. 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.

Who Should Drink It
A quiet, elegant French roast: gently pungent rather than astringently rough.
