Blind Assessment: (As brewed in a Keurig B60 single-serve brewing device using a "K-Cup" capsule to produce a 6-ounce serving size): Mildly sweet aroma, cinnamon toast, distant hint of citrus. Medium body, with some astringency in mouthfeel, and a suggestion of bright acidity. A mellow, straightforward cup, with notes of nut and toasted grain. Roastiness lingers in the finish, along with sweet wood and a stubborn astringency in the long.
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.
