Blind Assessment: (As brewed in a Keurig B60 single-serve brewing device using a "K-Cup" capsule to produce a 6-ounce serving size): Roasty aroma with mild smoky, earthy and caramel-like notes. Full, silky body, simple flavors of charred wood and fresh tobacco. Dry roasty note in finish, with some astringency, that fades and sweetens 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.
