Green Mountain Coffee
Newman’s Own Organics Extra Bold (K-Cup)
|Roaster Location:||Waterbury, Vermont|
|Roast Level:||Very Dark|
|Review Date:||March 2006|
Blind Assessment: (As brewed in a Keurig B60 single-serve brewing device using a "K-Cup" capsule at a cup volume of 5.25 ounces): Very mild, sweet, smokily cedar-toned aroma. In the cup simple, relatively rich for a K-cup brewed coffee, with dried fruit notes - raisins, cherries - that verge on a dark chocolate. Sweet, mildly astringent finish.
Notes: Sales of this coffee help support a variety of educational and charitable non-profit organizations through the Newman's Own Organics organization. It is certified organically grown and Fair Trade, the latter meaning the green beans were purchased from small-holding farmers at a "fair" or economically sustainable price. Keurig brewing devices were among the first single-serve brewers on the market, starting in the mid 1990's with office models and now with three home models. Green Mountain Coffee Roasters is one of the country's leading specialty roasters, offering a particularly wide-ranging variety of origins and roast styles, including an impressive selection of Fair-Trade and certified organic coffees under various labels, among them Newman's Own Organics.

Who Should Drink It : Socially progressive Keurig owners looking for a darker roasted cup that is simultaneously gentle and robust.
