Sweet, low-key, expansive aroma. In the cup rich and cleanly roasty, with an agreeable bittersweet balance complicated by fresh leather, chocolate and a shimmer of sweet grapefruit. The grapefruit persists in the rich but astringent finish.
K-Cups are designed for the Keurig single-serve brewer. Van Houtte ("A Taste of Europe in Your Cup") is a large Canadian coffee roaster and office coffee service provider with its roots in European small-batch roasting. Visit www.vanhoutte.com for more info.
