Blind Assessment:

(As brewed in a Keurig Special Edition B60 single-serve brewing device using a “K-Cup” capsule to produce 6-ounce serving): Delicate profile: caramel, gently tart fruit in the aroma, with the caramel deepening toward dark chocolate in the cup. Soft, balanced acidity; leanish though smooth mouthfeel. Sweet, caramelly finish.

Notes:

Reviewed in K-Cup format for Keurig single-serve brewers. Keurig brewing devices were among the first single-serve brewers on the market, starting in the mid 1990’s with office models and now offered in several home models with a variety of features and price points. Keurig/Green Mountain, formerly Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, pioneered single-serve capsule brewing in the United States with its Keurig brewing system, and remains one of the country’s leading large specialty roasters, offering a particularly wide-ranging variety of origins and roast styles.
