Blind Assessment:

(As brewed in a Keurig B70 Platinum single-serve brewing device using a “K-Cup” capsule to produce 6-ounce serving): Sweet-toned aroma with hints of tart cherry, flowers and fir. The sweetly tart fruit animates a refreshingly crisp cup, lush yet delicate. Clean, simple finish.

Notes:

Reviewed in K-cup format for Keurig single-serve brewers. Keurig brewing devices were among the first single-serve brewers on the market, starting in the mid 1990’s with office models and now offered in several home models with a variety of features and price points. Green Mountain Coffee Roasters is one of the country’s leading specialty roasters, offering a particularly wide-ranging variety of origins and roast styles.

Who Should Drink It: Classic American-style breakfast cup for Keurig owners.
