Green Mountain Coffee
Kenyan Highland Cooperatives Fair-Trade
|Roaster Location:||Waterbury, Vermont|
|Coffee Origin:||South-central Kenya.|
|Review Date:||September 2008|
Roundly balanced aroma; orange, chocolate, a hint of flowers. In the cup silky mouthfeel, crisp acidity. The orange notes turn pleasantly bittersweet (think fresh orange peel) and the hint of chocolate goes dark and raisiny. The orange notes carry deeply into the finish, with a revived suggestion of flowers.
This coffee is Fair-Trade certified, meaning it was purchased from small-holding farmers at a "fair" or economically sustainable price. Despite recent social and political disorder and a partial and rather confusing transition from auction system to open market, Kenya cooperatives continue to produce some of the world's most elegant and distinctive coffees. 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.
