Green Mountain Coffee
Organic Mexican Select Fair-Trade Medium Roast
|Roaster Location:||Waterbury, Vermont|
|Coffee Origin:||Southern Mexico|
|Review Date:||November 2005|
Intense aroma with a tightly knit complexity: muted spice, apple, pear, chocolate. In the cup sweet, delicate and balanced, with subtle but distinct chocolate notes and a quietly vibrant acidity. The chocolate turns toward cocoa in the mildly astringent finish.
Entirely produced by small-holding Mexican farmers and their cooperatives, most in the Oaxaca growing region. Certified organically grown and certified 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.
