Blind Assessment: (As brewed in a Keurig B70 Platinum single-serve brewing device using a Keurig-compatible capsule to produce a 6-ounce serving): Briskly rich, balanced. Caramel, walnut, orange, dark chocolate in aroma and cup. Quiet, dry acidity; light but smooth, silky mouthfeel. The short finish is rather drying but in the long the walnut and chocolate and a gentle sweetness prevail.
Notes: This coffee is sold pre-ground in capsules that are compatible with the Keurig brewing system, but which use a different design from Keurig K-Cups. This sample was produced from a coffee consisting entirely of peaberries, a kind of bean that results when the coffee fruit develops only a single, oval bean rather than the usual pair of flat-sided beans. Peaberries produce a somewhat different (often better) cup than normal beans from the same crop, from which they may or may not be separated during grading.
