Blind Assessment:

(As brewed in a Keurig B70 Platinum single-serve brewing device using a “K-Cup” capsule to produce 10- and 12-ounce servings): Roast-toned aromatic wood in the aroma. In the cup light body, especially in the twelve-ounce serving size, good sweetness and a soft smoky chocolate. The roasty aromatic wood carries into the finish.


Keurig brewing devices were among the first single-serve brewers on the market, starting in the mid 1990’s with office models and now offering five home models with a variety of features and price points. This “Travel Mug” K-Cup packs more coffee into the capsule than even the “Extra Bold” K-cup, with the intention of producing a larger volume of brewed coffee. Green Mountain Coffee Roasters is one of the country’s leading specialty roasters, offering a particularly wide-ranging variety of origins and roast styles.

Who Should Drink It: A gentle dark roast for Keurig-owning commuters.
