Green Mountain Coffee
|Roaster Location:||Waterbury, Vermont|
|Coffee Origin:||Central Kenya|
|Review Date:||December 2006|
A coffee at once voluptuous and austere. Delicately complex aroma: flowers, chocolate, tobacco leaf, lemon grass. In the cup an amazingly rich, wine-like acidity, sweet flowers, and a gently crisp, dry berry fruit. Hints of chocolate re-emerge in the cleanly long, almost perfect finish.
Despite national coffee leadership marred by corruption and now confusion, Kenya cooperatives continue to produce some of the world's most elegant and distinctive coffees. AA is the highest grade of Kenya coffee based on bean size. 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
Given the accommodating, wine-like richness of the acidity, it is hard to imagine any taste that would not find this coffee pleasing, even palates honed on less acidy or darker roasted profiles.
