Green Mountain Coffee
Organic Fair-Trade Espresso Blend
|Roaster Location:||Waterbury, Vermont|
|Coffee Origin:||Not disclosed.|
|Roast Level:||Very Dark|
|Review Date:||March 2008|
Assessed as espresso. Sweetly wood in the aroma, with a hint of dark chocolate and a savory, almost salty note. The same aromatic complex carries into the cup, though the wood warms toward cedar and the dark chocolate intensifies. Medium to full body. Heavy but sweet finish with a continuing chocolate note. In milk softens and sweetens appropriately but the shadow savory salt note continues to haunt the chocolate.
Assessed on a La Marzocco professional machine with brewing temperature set at 200F. One-ounce shot achieved approximately 25 seconds after the first drop. Tested in milk by combining a one-ounce shot with two parts and then four parts 2% milk. The coffees in this blend are certified organically grown and Fair Trade, meaning they were purchased from small-holding farmers at a "fair" or economically sustainable price. 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.

Who Should Drink It
Those who enjoy tequilas, retsina, any beverage with a savory/salty bite complicating a more familiar (in this case dark, roasty chocolate) flavor complex.
