Blind Assessment:

(As brewed in a Keurig B70 Platinum single-serve brewing device using a “K-Cup” capsule to produce a 6-ounce serving). Crisp, sweet-toned, delicate. Caramel, apricot, sweet chocolate, fresh-cut fir in aroma and cup. Round, gentle acidity; plush mouthfeel. Flavor consolidates but persists in a rich though slightly drying finish.

Notes:

This Blue Mountain is produced by Mavis Bank, one of Jamaica’s oldest, most traditional and most respected coffee mills. Mavis Bank coffees grow at some of the highest growing elevations in the Blue Mountains. This is one of Green Mountain’s Special Reserve line of specially sourced, limited edition coffees. Keurig brewing devices were among the first single-serve brewers on the market, starting in the mid 1990’s with office models and now available in five home models with a variety of features and price points. 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 quietly impressive version of this storied origin for Keurig owners.
