Green Mountain Coffee
Sumatran Lake Tawar
|Roaster Location:||Waterbury, Vermont|
|Coffee Origin:||Lake Tawar basin, Aceh Province, northern Sumatra, Indonesia|
|Review Date:||October 2007|
Blind Assessment: Deep, roast-influenced aroma: gently scorched cedar, cardamom, orange. In the cup the softly pungent roast and earth tones turn toward a raisiny dark chocolate, with continued distinct orange references. The finish is round, resonant, and stays well on the rich side of a slight astringency.
Notes: This coffee is 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.
