Blind Assessment: Caramelly and burned in the aroma; in the cup mildly roasty, crisp and bittersweet with a tickle of acidity. The bitterness intensifies as the cup cools, exaggerating the flat, astringent finish.
Notes: K-Cups are designed for the Keurig single-serve brewer. Diedrich Coffee is a publicly traded, quality-oriented specialty chain headquartered in California that benefits from the coffee leadership of Martin Diedrich, a third-generation member of a family of coffee growers and roasters. Visit
