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. Mystic Monk Coffee is a small-batch roaster associated with a Carmelite monastery located in the Rocky Mountains of northern Wyoming. Roastmaster Brother Java emphasizes his artisan approach to roasting and his commitment to quality. Visit www.mysticmonkcoffee.com or call 877-751-6377 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: A crisp, balanced cup for Keurig owners, nut- and chocolate-toned.
