French Roast (K-Cup)
|Roaster Location:||Seattle, Washington|
|Coffee Origin:||Not disclosed.|
|Roast Level:||Very Dark|
|Review Date:||January 2009|
Blind Assessment: (As brewed in a Keurig B60 single-serve brewing device using a "K-Cup" capsule to produce a 6-ounce serving size): Extreme dark roast yields intense charred wood notes in aroma and flavor. Subtler hints of baker?s chocolate, fresh chopped wood and smokiness also emerge. Roastiness continues in the finish with hints of cocoa.
Notes: Keurig brewing devices 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 B70. This sample is offered in a K-Cup that packs more coffee into the capsule and produces a more intense flavor profile than a normal K-Cup.

Who Should Drink It : For those who are attracted the extreme dark end of the roasting spectrum; you know who you are.
