Green Mountain Coffee Roasters
|Roaster Location:||Waterbury, Vermont|
|Review Date:||September 2000|
Blind Assessment: Rich, grapy fruit lifts off pleasantly from a smoke-toned, rather sharply bitter base. Wonderful aspiration in this blend, but to my palate the bitterness contradicts rather than complements the luxury of the fruit.
Notes: Rich, grapy fruit lifts off pleasantly from a smoke-toned, rather sharply bitter base. A blend comprised entirely of certified organically grown and Fair-Trade Certified coffees. Green Mountain, founded in 1981, is one of America 's pioneer specialty coffee roasters and a leader in cause coffees.
Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy paradox; in this case, smoky fruit.
