Love at First Sip (pod)
|Roaster Location:||Clearwater, Florida|
|Coffee Origin:||Central and South America|
|Roast Level:||Very Dark|
|Review Date:||January 2004|
Blind Assessment: Virtually no aroma. The cup is potatoey and flat on first impression, but with patient drinking a quietly satisfying profile emerges, with a balance of bitter, sweet, and acidy tones complicated by a low-key fruit that sneaks up on milk chocolate.
Notes: This hopefully named blend is delivered in proprietary pods designed for the Melitta One:One single-serve brewer. The One:One brewing device is a Salton design, manufactured and distributed by Melitta under a licensing agreement. Melitta, the coffee giant with world headquarters in Minden, Germany, roasts and packages its coffees in New Jersey for the American market. Visit
