Green Mountain Coffee
Organic Fair-Trade Ethiopia Yirgacheffe
|Roaster Location:||Waterbury, Vermont|
|Coffee Origin:||Yirgacheffe growing region, Sidamo Province, southern Ethiopia.|
|Review Date:||March 2008|
This coffee declares its essential Yirgacheffe character immediately: perfumy and pungently menthol-toned in the aroma, shimmering with floral and lemon notes. The aromatic drama carries without loss or simplification into a gently bright cup, light-bodied but silky in mouthfeel. The finish is thinnish but long, sweet, and flower-saturated.
Certified organically grown and Fair Trade, meaning it was 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
For those who know coffee, an archetypally floral-toned Yirgacheffe. For those who don't, buy it if you enjoy Rieslings and intense but delicate floral-toned whites. Impeccable social and environmental credentials.
