Blind Assessment:

A cabernet sort of coffee: boldly and richly dry, with fruit that reads as a wine-toned dry cherry or black currant with a rounding halo of chocolate. Tartly rich, long finish.

Notes:

Finca Dos Marias is a large farm and farming community in the high cloud forests of western Guatemala, near the border with Mexico.  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 powerfully acidy medium-roast coffee for lovers of the old-fashioned American cup.
