Blind Assessment:

(As brewed in a Keurig Platinum single-serve home brewing device using a “K-Cup” capsule to produce a 6-ounce serving size): A gentle ultra-dark-roasted cup with hints of chocolate and caramel in the aroma. In the cup mildly pungent with rougher flavor notes that lean toward aromatic and lightly charred wood. The charred wood note becomes more pronounced in the mildly astringent finish.

Notes:

Keurig brewing devices were among the first single-serve brewers on the market, starting in the mid 1990’s with office models and now offering five home models with names such as Mini, Elite and Platinum. This sample is offered in an “Extra Bold” K-Cup that packs more coffee into the capsule and produces a more intense flavor profile than a regular K-Cup. Founded in 1975, Timothy’s World Coffee is a Toronto-based, quality-oriented specialty coffee chain. Visit www.timothys.com or call 888-937-6278 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Keurig owners who appreciate dark roasts with rough edges.
