Green Mountain Coffee
Sumatra Reserve Fair-Trade Organic
|Roaster Location:||Waterbury, Vermont|
|Coffee Origin:||Northern Sumatra, Indonesia|
|Review Date:||May 2007|
Very rich aroma: tartly sweet, round-toned, with cherry- and orange-toned fruit. In the cup syrupy mouthfeel, sweet, with continued orangy fruit and a hint of moist leaves.
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
An impressively balanced version of the classic fruit-and-earth Sumatra cup additionally distinguished by its impeccable environmental and social credentials.
