Green Mountain Coffee
Joyful Season Fair-Trade Organic
|Roaster Location:||Waterbury, Vermont|
|Coffee Origin:||Not disclosed|
|Review Date:||November 2003|
Blind Assessment: The aroma is sweet, gently pungent, rich with low-toned, spicy fruit notes. The cup is medium-bodied, round, very sweet, with just enough acidity for authority. The low-toned fruit leans elegantly toward chocolate.
Notes: A blend of lighter and darker roasted coffees, all certified organically grown and fair-traded, meaning farmers have been paid an economically sustainable price for this coffee based on internationally established price guidelines. 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: Socially responsible coffee drinkers who enjoy a resonant, gently roasty cup.
