Green Mountain Coffee
Nicaragua Selva Negra Special Reserve
|Roaster Location:||Waterbury, Vermont|
|Coffee Origin:||Matagalpa, Nicaragua|
|Review Date:||August 2009|
Balanced aroma with soft notes of pipe tobacco, vanilla, sweet aromatic wood and suggestions of fruit. The fruit becomes more pronounced in the bright-toned acidity. A graceful cup, with a lightly syrupy mouthfeel and flavors of orange, grapefruit, fir, and a touch of chocolate that sweetens in the finish.
Certified organically grown, this coffee was produced on the Selva Negra (Black Forest) farm, a name that reflects the nostalgia of this pioneering coffee farm's 19th century German founders. In the 21st century its fourth-generation owners have reinvented Selva Negra as a celebrated agri-tourism destination, a completely self-sufficient, sustainable farm community with extensive forest reserves and a very characteristic Nicaragua coffee. This coffee is part of Green Mountain's "Special Reserve" series of select small lots of seasonally available coffees. 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.
